I've heard the term Christian Witch before and although I don't agree with their cemented theories on that sect of religion, I do like the concept. I was raised as a Christian and yet I have always been drawn to the occult and the paranormal. Vampires, ghosts, demons, and most of all witches. Please don't jump to conclusions and think that I am lumping witches with vampires, ghosts and demons; because I most certainly am not. I never have nor will I ever consider witches as evil and I am a firm believer in the often stated theory that the original Bible never spoke out against witches. I believe that the Bible was perhaps misinterpreted, either purposefully or accidentally. It is an often stated fact that King James, the man who had the Bible translated from the original Hebrew to English, was deathly afraid of witches and the occult. Supposedly the true translation of the well known verse "thou shall not suffer a witch to live" originally stated "thou shall not suffer a poisoner to live". Now everyone knows that a poisoner is clearly not a witch. Well I suppose that a poisoner could be a witch under the right circumstances, but generally speaking a poisoner is certainly not a witch.
So my question is... would it be alright to combine these two things? Christianity and witchcraft? I have read, but not quite studied, multiple things about different religions. Some of these things frighten me. The only religion that I honestly feel comfortable with is Christianity. I suppose this is in major part to the fact that this is what I grew up believing and although the Christians have done terrible things in the name of their Father, I feel safe in this religion. However that doesn't mean that I want to stop taking an active role in my own life. I believe that if The Powers That Be didn't want you to use magic then they wouldn't have given you such a unique gift. Would it be alright to take what I have learned and return to my Christian path, incorporating what I have learned into that path? Or would this mean blasphemy on both sides? Are the two sides so hostile towards each other that they cannot be blended?
