What makes my path Christian? And What makes it Witchy or Pagan?
First & Foremost Jesus Christ is my Lord & Savior. He isn’t an ascended master as I’ve seen many Christian Witches believe him to be. The teachings of Christ are above & beyond all others. And these teachings speak to the individuals heart of all whom reach out for his guidance & light! In this way I worship no other God.
However I recognize The Trinity. I show respect towards Virgin Mary & the Goddess Hekate. (Which is where my witch roots come in)
In the past I was polytheistic, I can see that there is the influence from other so called deities or demons (daimons) however one would look at them. They have both good & bad attributes to them as I will discuss at a later time.
What is witchy about me? My respect towards Hekate. My respect towards the Underworld & magick. My respect towards those before me. My ancestors & the lives that were lost during religious wars. Particularly any women whether truly a witch or not.
The Goddess isnt forgotten. God wouldn’t and couldn’t.
But I understand why he did as he did when Jesus was born, crucified and ressurected. As I will deeply discuss my ideas at a later time.
Do I believe in astrology? I believe it’s both true and false. Do I believe it has more advantage than having a relationship with Christ? I believe that the spirits of the planets whom converse with humanity relating to Astrology can offer very flashy words and stroke the ego but the end result is the pushing of belief in evolution.
And I no longer see truth in evolution. If evolution was true then humanity would be much further in the evolutionary stages than we are. It’s illusion. To keep a false belief in some kind of race to an imaginary finish line that a human mind has made up.
Only God can decide evolution. What, where and how. Humanity can only chose to follow suit or rebel. Humanity cannot create a bladeof grass let alone be stable to make up evolutionary milestones. Lol
So, if astrology is working for you? Cool. But if it becomes repetitive & unfruitful? Rethink your source of information. Why bypass Christ whom is clear, grounded and without this mystical layer of magick all-over him as the others do because of the magick they are selling you–to listen to the voices of the planets whom give truthfully generalizations.
Humans, all of us, are much more similar than we tend to want to admit. Astrology is over the top when you can go straight to source, through JC.
Do I use tarot or oracle cards? I don’t use Tarot anymore, but I wi use some Oracle cards. I also trust the Akashic Tarot. The Akashic records told me one thing two years ago;Jesus Christ was to be accepted by all of humanity in order to gain soul regeneration. (So to speak)
I was told this before my conversion.
Some Oracle cards are actually fine but it depends on the type and where the information is coming from. And this isn’t okay with every person who considers themselves a Christian. Because it’s not for you.
At the same time, that doesn’t mean that oracle cards should be depended on for truth but to put something or someone to the test.
There is no higher way to find truth than to ask Christ. The only way cards & all witchcraft,new age supplies can cause issues is if you fear them, which means you believe in them.
Demons and spirits can influence you with and without these “doorways” in your home.
And depends on your mind, the spirits or demons, the reasons for the haunting, and method of oppression.
Temptation comes in all shapes and sizes. Not just these shapes.
Just because I converted & saw truth doesn’t mean I won’t ever be effected by darkness again or make bad decisions.
Remember this is an already. Darkness will remain. But asking Him to shine the light will begin true change within oneself.
Will I ever speak to passed on loved ones? Depends on the situation and person. Cast spells? Not anymore. Channeling? Not purposefully.
I suppose the way the witch part still applies is that I am not running from the demons, spirits or passed on loved ones. I have seen too much. I know that there is danger, corruption, and what not within these things. But it doesn’t mean there isn’t a reason for the situation.
Im not completely renouncing my practices before my conversion. I may be putting down certain things & I have dropped my dependence on certain practices to do what JC can do.
But I AM completely renouncing my satanic practices & I am letting go of Satan, Lucifer as a main deity that I follow as I was before.
However that doesn’t mean I don’t understand his role in this life for both better & worse. He truly does teach the knowldge of good & evil. Which is the same as seeing our difficult times as dark gifts once we rise above them.
Satan & Sin doesn’t need to be hated. That is a trap. It needs to be seen through, understood, and accepted as a part of darkness. But also a partof darkness that always has the opportunity to be forgiven or redeemed when sincerely sought after.
Human anger & hate never amounts to anything. We should never take it upon ourselves to believe that we understand something to it’s fullest amount that hatred from our hearts is what’s warranted. I’ve never seen hatred nor anger amount to anything for me. And I’ve explored many things. Yes I still feel it. But it’s not my responsibility to keep it with me. It’s a tool to use to protect me if needed. But held on for longer than a few moments it becomes a weapon.
I’ve always found that even in the darkest of situations, how it unfolds depends largely on how you interact with the situation itself. Life for everyone is complicated, full of darkness and suffering, with God searching for us in every darkest night.
Trust in his knowledge and faith that what will be done is what’s best is the only way to find peace. It’s never made any sense that we don’t know why we are here. To me, I’ve always felt a sense of trust in truth being here only not accepted or understood. If we are here. Directions is the logical thing that would come to us. And from God, not another Human.
The expereience of God isn’t fancy, it isn’t flamboyant, it isn’t here to coddle your ego, or give you want you want. The experience of JC comes when you’re fed up from the game & ready for truth. When you’re ready to confess you’re shortcomings, and ask for help. He comes then and slowly fills your heart releasing you of what stands between you & him.
Lifting the veil.
This is why I’m Christian. Im witchy or pagan because I will never forget the sacrifices the Goddess has made as well, still here, yet working from a far. I will always be balanced in my worship of both.
He comes first.
