Trinitarian neopaganism?
By:
Post # 1
Okay so here is belief:
I believe in the bible and god and Jesus
I believe that some magic can wield the holys' power
I say "Christian Wiccan" because it seems close, but I searched it on Wikipedia and it called it Trinitarian Neopaganism. Apparently this means that I would believe in magic and a single male entity, but that's not "me". So what am I called?
(Hint: not Trinintarian Neopaganism)

It means you're eclectic and there is no such thing as Christian Wicca. If one goes by the bible, it states that no Christian will ever worship other Gods before Him (which excludes Wicca right off the bat, as it is a duotheistic religion). One can be Christian and worship in a Wiccan manner, but that does not make them a Christian Wiccan. If you don't want to practice Magick, you can go look at Chistian Mysticism, which is similar except for that Mysticism involves prayer and working through a deity or being taught the mysteries of that deity (or deities). If you are not Pagan or Wiccan in any manner, than terms like Christian Wiccan, Trinitarian Neopaganism, and Chrisopagan are useless).

There is a belief that is gaining popularity where the pagan Gods are linked to the Abrahamic God (either being made by God or being facets of Him), though that is more eclectic than anything.

Someone may decide to call themselves a Christian Wiccan due to the morals and beliefs they follow :)
I know plenty of people that do.

As to the original poster I would say Eclectic Wiccan with Christian tendencies.. Haha, but why put a label? Just be you :)

You can be whatever you want to be. The bible, like the Koran, Zohar etc are all open to interpretation (there are so many contradictions!) The Christian church has been working with magick for centuries. The most important thing is that you think for yourself and do not blindly follow.

Christian Witch, Christian Practicioner, etc... are terms that denote Christianity and hold no other religious connotations. It's complicated and can leave you somewhat confused as to where you stand religiously yet it isn't impossible to follow the Christian ways while practicing magick at the same time. At the very least the bible indicates that precognitive abilities are accepted under the Christian faith as the bible contains descriptions prophets who received messages as well as visions from God. My view point is the bible must be against using magick, like anything else, in a harmful way rather than overall as we are made in God's image and he created us with the ability to do what people refer to as magick yet what one day may be called natural evolution by scientists (not that magick is flashy like movies depict it to be) assuming that abilities such as seeing auras for example is connected to how your brain functions in regards to perception. Labels are created to group people together and no matter what your labeled as everyone is unique so forget labeling yourself.

One interpretion I've never heard at this link http://answers.yahoo.com/question/index? qid=20100410131815AAVee3Z is "THOU SHALT NOT SUFFER A WITCH TO LIVE." This interpretation of Exodus 22:18 provided encouragement to the witch hunters of the Renaissance, and justified their putting to death those they had identified as witches. Tens of thousands of unfortunates who, in some way or other, had earned for themselves the title "witch" had little hope of mercy when faced with the seemingly unambiguous nature of this command. From ReligiousTolerance.org In the original Hebrew manuscript, the author used the word m'khashepah to describe the person who should be killed. The word means a woman who uses spoken spells to harm others - e.g. causing their death or loss of property. Clearly "evil sorceress" or "woman who does evil magic" would be the most accurate phrases in today's English usage for this verse. Source(s): You can read more about the misconceptions created by bad translations of this verse @ http://www.religioustolerance.org/wic_bibl2.htm Many believe this to be a mistranslation but in the end that's why I said it can leave you confused as to where you stand in your faith. I've met many nice people who practice magick and at the same time people who outright say they do things they themselves call evil. I'm not going to change my beliefs just to make myself happy because then that means I have no respect for any religion. I was brought up in my faith and if I suffer it's my fault alone.

If people can be 'whatever they want to be' without respect for what is what, then we lose what it means to be either of those. One can be Christian with Wiccan style and tendencies or Wiccan with Christian style and tendencies, but the reason they don't mix is because one is monotheistic and the other is duotheistic., One deity and two deities. Eclectic form of both? Sure, but that does not make them Christian or Wiccan. Those labels people want to throw around or away so easily are there for a reason and it's more than just a word; it denotes what is what.

From what the original poster said, s/he believes in people being able to use holy power, which I assume to mean Magick through God, which is what a normal Christian Priest or Priestess does. There is nothing about Paganism, Witchcraft, or Wicca, listed past association of Magick, which is something Christians can practice on their own. When beginning in Witchcraft, Paganism, and Wicca, people often forget that there is more to them than Magick. They are simply more open to Magick, not all about it.

I agree with the comment of the witchkid, but I also believe that each person can create their own belief, or religion, is a free will and universal right. I blame those who call themselves or represent any religion and denigrate the image and rules because of his madness, we know many stories about. I prefer make my own religion and beliefs and blame myself if I was wrong.
