I feel really sorry for you. Not being able to tell your parents. My mother has always been there for me and she was the first person I told when I became interested in witchcraft. Luckily for me, I had a mother who understood my interest in magic. She'd also dabbled in it herself. Perhaps you should just try telling your parents about your interest in magic. It could help if you told your parents that the original Hebrew Bible stated that "thou shall not suffer a poisoner to live" and actually never said anything about putting witches to death.
I can understand where you are coming from. I grew up in a Mormon family and hid my practices for many years. Honestly it was something that we just didnt seem to bring up. When they wanted, I would go to the church with them but its not like I really participated. Its hard to know when the time is right to tell them if ever. I agree, it is a good idea to do things while they are not home. Also going out on walks and into nature to do your work also helps. Keep your head up hun and dont stress it too much.
I understand how you feel because I have passed through the same thing. If your parents are christian they will usually believe that you are going to the fiery pits of hell which is their belief. If you believe in god and have your own practices then you and your parents should know that god is merciful and that he forgives us because we are not perfect. The right thing to do would be to stop hiding it from them and tell them about your interest in magic and its workings. Don't hide it from them just tell them. If your parents are the strict religious type and your are scared they will burn you alive or kill you then here are some tips to hide it from them:
-Do your practices at night and when they are not home
-Try not to act or give any suspicions by acting witchy.
-Keep your supplies hidden in a place you only know of.
