A Brief Excerpt on the Conflicts Christian Witchcraft Practitioners Face.

Christian Magick

I’m going to try and keep the following topic I am about to discuss in the next paragraph to a minimum. There is a lot of pushback and astigmatism against this topic. Christian Witches have not been public before the last few years, and that is because of getting bad backlash from both sides of the topic. People forget that religion and practices are completely personal and not everyone will believe in the same or have the same experiences. It is easy to find two common viewpoints or statements coming from this topic that are either “Christians can’t be witches” and only few views publicly speaking out that “Christians can be witches”. Witchcraft and religious beliefs are two completely different subjects and do not coincide, unless the practitioner wants to include the two together, period. Luckily, Witchcraft has been growing since people are not being persecuted in the majority of countries and that countries are still in our era making witchcraft legal. Because of this uplifting of banning witchcraft, practitioners of witchcraft are getting to evolve and not be such an oppressed, strict, and stressful practice. With time, practitioners will become more accepting of the different kinds of witches and including Christian witches, however they will continue to see the disapproval from Christians and those of other faiths that are not Pagan. the Bible does say "thou shalt not suffer a witch to live." There's been a great deal of discussion in the Pagan community about that line, with many people arguing that it's a mistranslation, and that originally it had nothing to do with witchcraft or sorcery, but that the original text was "thou shalt not suffer a poisoner to live." In general, the notion of the line in the Book of Exodus applying to poisoners and not witches is one that is popular in Pagan circles but has been repeatedly dismissed by Jewish scholars.

Some Christian Witches practice differently with personal belief systems with their craft. With some having their two parts; 'Christian' part (aspiring to Christ Consciousness) and the Witch part (magickal) as spiritual paths and NOT as religion.

Christian Witchcraft can be considered White Magick, Since they still uphold their religions rules (Ex. The Ten Commandments). So hexes and curses are out of the question for some Christian witches. Divination as a Christian witch depends on the practitioner themselves. Some practice it as a direction from their god, or some don’t practice the divination at all.

Some perform their spells either separate from their faith, or use their spells with involvement of prayers to god.

For More information, there are few books out there, one of the first ones being The Path of a Christian Witch by Adelina St. Claire. There is also a gathering of Christian witches, formed by Rev. Valerie Love.
