Christian versus Wiccan

 

Christian Wicca
God is not a force but is rather a Spirit.

John 4:24 God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth.

 

An impersonal god (force).

Wiccan view of the Goddess and God aspect of the supreme creative force

Gods Word Says,

Deuteronomy 18:10 There shall not be found among you any one that maketh his son or his daughter to pass through the fire, or that useth divination, or an observer of times, or an enchanter, or a witch,
 

Wiccans consider themselves to be Shamanic (witch doctors) healers, holistic health

 

God is not part of nature but is the creator of nature. God is outside of his creation.

Revelation 4:11 Thou art worthy, O Lord, to receive glory and honor and power: for thou hast created all things, and for thy pleasure they are and were created.

 

A oneness of nature a part of nature

 

 God the Father is always referred to as the male Deity. This is because God did not birth us as a woman and mother does. God did not birth us, but we were created out of the dust of the ground.

Genesis 2:7 And the LORD God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul.

 

Polarities of The One:


The Goddess and God are seen as a manifestation of the feminine and masculine forces of nature.

 

God gave man dominion over all of the earth

Genesis 1:28 And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth.

 

"We do not own the earth, we are part of it."

Men only die once and are not reincarnated.

Hebrews 9:27 And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment:


 

Many Witches believe in reincarnation and the Summerland. After passing over, Summerland is where the spirit awaits to be returned into a new physical form.

We do not believe in an absolute Heaven or Hell where the spirit spends eternity as reward or punishment for ones earthly actions.

 

God forbids us to entertain the demons of this world. Those that do are in danger of Hell.

Deuteronomy 18:10 There shall not be found among you any one that maketh his son or his daughter to pass through the fire, or that useth divination, or an observer of times, or an enchanter, or a witch, (11) Or a charmer, or a consulter with familiar spirits, or a wizard, or a necromancer. (12) For all that do these things are an abomination unto the LORD: and because of these abominations the LORD thy God doth drive them out from before thee.

Leviticus 20:6 And the soul that turneth after such as have familiar spirits, and after wizards, to go a whoring after them, I will even set my face against that soul, and will cut him off from among his people.

 

Occult practices (astrology, divination)

Wiccan learns from and revere the gift of nature from divine creation by celebrating the cycles of the sun, moon and seasons.

All religions are equal (except Christianity), Only through Jesus and his name can a person be saved.

John 20:31 But these are written, that ye might believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God; and that believing ye might have life through his name.

 

Syncretism (unity of all religions)

We do not look at our path as the only way to achieve spirituality, but as one path among many to the same end.

The King James Bible tells us the opposite.

Matthew 16:24 Then said Jesus unto his disciples, If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me.

We search within ourselves for the cycles that correspond to those of the natural world and try to live in harmony with the movement of this universal energy.

We draw our energy from within.

 

"In the beginning God created" (Genesis. 1:1). Because they confuse God with creation, the Wicca's  see God as part of creation-not separate from it. Biblical Christianity clearly distinguishes between God and creation. Wiccan believe that the spirit of the One, Goddess and God exist in all things.   In the trees, rain, flowers, the sea, in each other and all of natures creatures.
