Christians follow Jesus, whom they believe is Christ, Messiah, Savior. If you feel you need to be saved from something, Jesus' example might be a valid path. Jesus was probably a very powerful practitioner of magic and deserves a level of respect from anyone. He also loved people, was a pacifist, and died because he did not give up. That being said, he is a practitioner of magic and might have misused his power or been misaligned by the general public, thereby invalidating his example.

Sage has already said that he/she has given up Christianity. As for Jesus being a pacifist; wow! This is the man who drove a herd of pigs over a cliff; who wrecked a Holy Temple, who took a whip to the Money-changers. That's some pacifist!
Religion and spirituality are two different things. But magick doesn't necessarily have to be associated with either. If you choose to follow a spiritual path that practices magick but one does not necessarily go with the other
