short answer yes, but you should do some soul searching and speak with your minister/priest/whoever runs your church. Christianity doesn't have high regards to witches and those who cast spells and believe in magick [even though mass contains much magick but that's a different matter]

the real question is why do you want to be/do both? what aspects of Paganism do you love? what aspects of Paganism do you hate? what do you love about Christianity? What do you hate? not every pagan believes the same thing, and different branches of Christianity/Catholicism preach slightly different views. there is a path called Christian Wicca [though it's more 'Christian Witchcraft' but thats not the point] you can look into. there's even a coven on SoM you can contact and ask questions to. ultimately, whatever path you choose for yourself, sit down and figure it out over time, make lists, soul search, meditate, talk to people, before labelling yourself something. good luck to you.

I personally believe no. There are a variety of differences in the two. Christians believe in the bible, wiccan's mostly view it as an overstructured booklet that promotes the only true way.

Wicca has 1 god, but it's split or has 2 manifestations(goddess, god). While Christianty has 1 god, although many believe in the trinity (father, son, holy spirit). Christian's believe in heaven and hell. Wiccans in recarnation.

See? There's many differences. You'd basically be a person who is just eclectic.

Christian Wicca is a sin because it uses magic. The bible clearly states the commandements in Exodus 20, & Deutronomy 5. Anything that is temptation or non godly is basically Satan working.

While Wiccan's don't believe in Satan. Well, technically there worshipping him without realization. Satan creates perfect scenarios, or a perfect life as a trap. This is how Christians feel, and if your a true Christian you'd tell god your temptations, and try to think what your not getting out of religion.

To me, i was both but i was never fully sastified. I grew up Christian, then i turned wiccan because i strived for comfort, and spiritual connection. I resulted in always being gloomy because i was still missing connections. For me, i turned back to Christian and my views have changed drastically.

The best advice i can say? Study, check your beliefs. Write a list down, ask yourself what you like about both religions. Sometimes you'll realize its 1 or the other. Others will realize its a different religion there craving.

Shaharazahd, while similar, this is not specifically a discussion about Christianity and Wicca, rather a question about Christianity and Paganism.

This is going to be a widey debated topic nonetheless. Just do your own research on the two belief systems, and make your own judgements. That's really all you can do.

Pagan does not necessarily mean Wiccan. They can still be Christian and practice other pagan beliefs if they desire. Now what those beliefs/ideas are is up to the original poster.

@ Shaharazahd, Wicca doesn't believe the God and Goddess are the same deity separated as Christians believe in the Holy Trinity [father, son and holy ghost are the same being] The Goddess and The God are two separate entities, they 'become one' when they meet and marry, like finding your 'soul mate' to 'complete you'. they were never one deity split into two.

second, while your belief, it is rather insulting to say Wiccans are being fooled by Satan. it's your belief, but i for one have felt the connection and have spoken with my Goddess and my God. there was no point to throw in that comment other than to insult another belief. everyones path is different. what works for one person doesn't work for another, and sometimes paths change, i know plenty of people who devoutly followed one path until they reached the end only to move on to a new path. it doesn't mean their first path was wrong, you learned your lesson you needed to.

third, as said, the question was about being a Pagan, not Wiccan. even if she meant Wicca, paganism has many paths and deities, some based on ancient deities whose worship dates back far beyond Christianity. though as i mentioned before, you are correct that Christianity frowns upon many pagan values, that is why i recommended Fox_love does some soul searching and speaking to a member of her church as well since there are passages in the bible condoning various pagan practices. pagan paths have no problem integrating Christianity into them, the problem lies with the Christian viewpoints. like your view that Wiccans are being deceived, and my view Wiccans worship one of many different deities [which does contradict your view of their being only one] Fox_love needs to take what she/he [sorry, don't know your gender] learns in their studies and follows what is true in their heart.

You might find the book "Pagan and Christian" by Robin Lane Fox a useful one to read in order to understand fully the differences between the two so you can decide for yourself whether you can blend two different belief systems. And has been suggested, also talk this over with your own minister/priest to see how Christianity views this idea.

Also, remember that Pagan is not one thing. Rather it is an umbrella term which covers a wide variety of religions and beliefs. Some Pagan religions such as Asatru, Wicca, Kemeticism, Hellenism, and Celtic reconstruction would not match at all with Christian beliefs and practices. So you would need to look at which specific form of Paganism you are interested in in order to see whether it will blend with Christian thought.

Yes, one Path is called "Christopagan." Remember your Path is yours, what is in your heart is yours. Blessings & Light, Perizada
