Wiccans do not believe in the concept of heaven and hell. If you believe that Jesus was God-made-man then you are a Christian. If you do not believe it, then you are a Pagan/Wiccan. You cannot be both!
I disagree. I believe that if one sees Jesus as a god in human form then they are a christian and possibly a pagan. A pagan believes in many gods I don't see why a pagan can't add Jesus to the pantheon of gods they work with. I personally work with gods from all different groupings but when I place them in my own grouping they work well for me. I personally have not used Jesus however I do believe that someone was the basis for the theology of Christ.
One could say there are fine lines between religions but I like to focus on our similarities rather than our differences. The father, son, and holy ghost are actually different parts of the whole just like the maiden, mother, and crone.
I suggest watching the Zeitgeist Movie's part about Christ.
Um..To go to hell? Beacause...of magic? A wiccan is a pagan btw. Um...You can do magic,it doesn't matter which religion is your..But christianity judges every religion OR craft that is NOT christianity..you won't go to hell :)
No you do not have to be a wiccan or a pagan to do magic, as a matter of fact you can believe in many things and be able to perform magic, or you could believe in nothing. As for the going to hell part, this has been a christian method implementing fear so that people may stay within church boundaries, now it is up to you if you do believe in a hell for practicing magic, follow your beliefs :)
In the Christian faith your born into the world a sinner, so unless your saved your going to hell. Doing magic wouldn't be the reason though, a lack a repentance would be, since you would be going to hell anyways. ....That's if your Christian.
But even for "saved" born again Christians, doing magic or "craft" wont in their beliefs condemn you to hell. (Not including Catholics)
trust me you will not go to hell as long as you have a peace with in you wen you practice magick and do not use magick to harm. but if you do not feel comfortable wen you practice magick than it is asher sine that going to spell craft is not for you. so i would recommend staying with in you beliefs.
Overall summary: only do wat you feel is right for you.

If you believe in Jesus as God the Son; together with the Father, and Holy Ghost; then you are a Christian. Because, as a true Christian you believe in only the one God/Trinity; and NO OTHER!
Now, you may "profess" to be a Christian, and also "profess" to be a witch. In fact, you will be neither the one nor the other. A true Christian does not believe in any God except Jesus as the son of God, and that God the God of the ten commandments, "Thou shalt have no other Gods before me." A true witch will accept Jesus as a wise, and learned man. But not, as a God.
