Christians and witches

Postby Van helsing » Sat Aug 12, 2017 10:56 pm

I'm a Christian curious about witch craft. I have researched the history of the church both good and bad. Does anyone know if there truly is a conflict with god and witches?

there is no conflict with god and witches.
God is originally a pagan god from the middle eastern region. A war god. over time he assimilated his wife's attributes, a love goddess. There is precedent of a single pagan god becoming a monotheistic god (Zeus/Deus).
In the old testament, one of the great leaders of the bible consulted a witch for divination. Even Solomon was a great sorcerer.

The real problem with witches is, in my understanding, a political and competitive one. Religion was used to conquer and assimilate, which is why many christian holidays revolve around pagan holidays. The competition thing is that Christianity is exclusive, excluding other gods, rather than how greek/roman/egypt religion was inclusive, accepting of other's gods.

I'm relatively certain that there is the divine, that creatures can choose to become gods, but may take time, or not, depending. God is often constrained temporally. I kind of view everything as being possible and full of paradox. Pax!

Or viewed as constrained temporally. Again, a paradox.
