The true Christian faith, based on the bible, does not say you cannot practice magic. If you want to stick with that religion, just remember a few key things from it. The only thing I see being an issue, would be idolizing other gods. This is obviously against the Christian faith, as stated in the ten commandments. Other then that it is not much different from others.
The main issue is that in today's society, people have added in their own interpretations of what is "good" and "evil" in the eyes of the Lord. Just because a pastor at a church says you cant meditate, chant, do spell work etc., it does not mean that is actually part of that religion. I remember when they said that listening to Rock and Roll was worshiping the devil hahaha XD
I actually asked my pastor if he got that information straight from God or not. Blessings to you and I hope you find the answers you seek.
