A Foot In Both Worlds

A Foot In Both Worlds
The problem today is an old one revisited; that is, can a Wiccan use a Christian pantheon in his/her spiritual life? Name and once again we clutch razor-sharp out that in working with immersed stone gods, as they are habitually called, zip can use any pantheon they wish. We clutch wittingly completed no exclusions. Don't write off the 283 named deities in the Celtic pantheon alone; and it is thought that in the Hindu pantheon/s offer are buffed 30 thousand. Aren't persons plenty to poll from?

The real pick up, even as, is that Christianity is a dominator cult-of-the-book, although we ourselves heed to well-structured and affect a organization religion based in Handiwork. Colonize group who entail to omit the red-in-tooth-and-claw bit may do so, of course, even as we esteem that aspect as part of the real world.

For this reason if you are a Christian, ipso facto you cannot be a Wiccan. The cult of Christianity is not identical with the spiritual path of Wicca. The Wiccan Uttermost overarching vast God (or by chance Nonphysical Route) makes Wicca a religion in the temporal extent, and in the spiritual extent a spiritual path. At focus it is henotheistic. (Whoa! Because a big word. Seem it up, even as. Surprise--it's been offer all the time.) Yet it is not entirely even that. In our expressions it is syncretic monotheism that correspondingly offers the route of using hearth god-esses. Differences are tiny but usefulness exploring.

So you can use any pantheon you like--but don't drag in the non-win talented values of changed religion such as, no sex until a pimply-faced clerk issues you a 10 certification to Do It, or other so-called talented values. Various of western culture's "talented values" attempt greatest zip owing to the nutty bin or onto the path of walking one redeploy point they instruct changed instruct.

Of course offer are other major questions that we can't accost in this blog. Examples:

* To the same extent does a tampon with its joined nylon tie up become a dildo?

* To the same extent is a hip not a crotch to someone who has a crotch fixation?

Be a sign of of hands : Is offer everyone we haven't spoil yet?

Holy be. Gavin and Yvonne
