The Christian Witches

Trinitarians work exclusively with the Goddess-inclusive Christian Pantheon. Now, let’s take a deep breathe and learn about what this is all about.

Meanings of Words

18 “Thou shalt not suffer a witch to live.”

-Exodus 22:18 King James Version (KJV)

There is some speculation that this line was a mistranslation, that “witch” was meant to be a poisoner. Either way, this line is the bases of the horrific “burning times” that plagued Europe.

To be specific, Germany, Spain, and a few other countries were the only ones to burn the “witches” at the stake, while the British Isles hung theirs. All in all, innocent people were killed because of a possible mistranslation. However, what does this have to do with Christian witches?

Wic·ca /ˈwikə/ noun
a religion influenced by pre-Christian beliefs and practices of western Europe that affirms the existence of supernatural power, such as magic, and of both male and female deities who inhere in nature and that emphasizes ritual observance of seasonal and life cycles.

Chris·ti·an·i·ty /ˌkrisCHēˈanədē/ noun
The religion based on the person and teachings of Jesus of Nazareth, or its beliefs and practices.

Excluded from Both

Christian witches face many difficulties from both pagans and Christians alike. Both thinking that combining witchcraft with Christianity is an oxymoron. However, it shouldn’t be.

Witchcraft and Wicca are two different things while witchcraft is an action Wicca is a religion. Jesus prayed and performed miracles.

“As for Christian Wicca, the term Christian is used as a modifier for the pantheon observed in this particular practice of Wicca, much like the concept of Celtic Wicca.”

In October of 1999, a Yahoo group surfaced called, Christian Wicca. Later on, renamed Trinitarian Wicca. Trinitarian Wiccans don’t have to agree with the concept of Satan, Original Sin, or any other such things. They especially don’t believe in the patriarchal aspects of the Church.

What makes a Trinitarian Wiccan a Trinitarian Wiccan is the use of the Christian pantheon. That could be saints, Jesus and Mary, or only the Holy Trinity. They use lost scripture, like the Gospel of Thomas, and Gnostic teachings; some even use Kabbalah in their practice. That is it. Christian was a modifier, and it changed to Trinitarian.

Open Arms

The fact that these people face discrimination for their beliefs, from both sides, isn’t right. Ostracizing them for their beliefs isn’t what Wicca and Christianity are about at all. Moreover, I for one, find the fact that they have combined the two, shows that we all can coexist.
