“Pharmacists must seek to raise people's awareness so that all human beings are protected from conception to natural death, and so that medicines truly play a therapeutic role”

How could a Christian be a Wiccan too. That would be impossible unless you were suffering from multiple personalities.
The philosophies of two religions don't fit into my mind as being at all compatible.

But the beliefs of those within the same religions are not at all compatible either, and yet devout believers in the approximate 38,000 different denominations of Christianity claim to all know the truth.

I believe that whether in religion, or not in religion, all we can ever have are individual "concepts" of truth. And concepts are all too human to be accredited with knowing about such issues as whether or not life continues after the cells in physical human and non-human animals die.

I've often wondered about that commandment. Does that mean that "god" acknowledges that there are other "gods"? Does it mean that "god" is scared that people will go over to those other gods? It certainly would indicate that people who are neither jew nor christian aren't obligated to the abrahamic god. Why can't a person believe in the abrahamic god and be wiccan?
Despite having to patiently wait for you to explain why you called me a nutter, I will answer your question about God. God isn't scared of anything on his own account, because we puny human beings are nothing compared to him, and he could wipe the whole lot of us out in a second if he wanted to. He knows that we are so feeble minded that we would make idols out of bits of wood and other bits of stuff we find lying around, and bow down to them and worship them, for example, all the bits of old stuff that we call the Mona Lisa and lumps of old stone that some people say is worth millions of pounds, it's all bits of old tat really though. But he loves us, and is patient with us, hoping that we will come to our senses and learn to value what is really worth valuing.

He is acknowledging that people believed in many gods.
Initially God was telling the Israelites that He was the one true God who created them and there are no other gods.
Wiccans have many gods that they believe in and it would be a total conflict for a Christian to believe in more than one God.
If you believe in a One True God you can't also believe in the Wiccan Gods.
"I Am the Lord thy God. Thou shall not have strange gods besides me"
That isn't what's being said. The statement isn't that these are fake gods, the statement is that the israelites will not believe in those OTHER gods. There's another statement reportedly made by god that he is a jealous god which makes no sense if he's the ONLY god.

Can't understand why anyone would think your a nutter.

Had you wanted others to pray for you, church would have been the place for that activity.

My guess is, wouldn't take all your homophobia to a church as you brought it to this forum or your minister wouldn't have got a word in edgewise.

As you know damned well that I was put into a psychiatric hospital as a "place of safety" when I was 14 and have had to be hospitalised since then for depression due to the abuse I suffered as a child, I really think you ought to think very carefully before you make any more disgusting remarks like the one you have just made.

The French philosopher Blaise Pascal wrote in the 1600s that “Men never do evil so completely and cheerfully as when they do it from religious conviction.” He was right then, and he is still right today..
Within the teachings of Jesus is some of the most profound wisdom for the preservation and extension of humanity that we will find anywhere. He offers us a pathway to God and community that truly offers hope for all of us.
When he is invoked in the cause of narrow political partisanship, we crucify him afresh."
and no one makes religion so evil as you and people like you
That's quite the sermon. Do you believe you are Christ-like Svaha?

My guess is, that humans are selfish to the core, and that a man named Jesus never existed.

You would be the first one to howl and yowl HOMOPHOBE if anyone made an obnoxious remark about gay people, and yet you think it is ok to repeatedly call someone who has had mental heath problems through none of her own fault but purely on account of the fact that she was abused as a child a nutter. You have shown yourself up in your hypocritical true light.

I did go to church but none of the churches where I live want anything to do with the Pindown survivors, and at the time I did not know why but I do now. It is because the church was involved in the abuse, the Father Hudson Society. One vicar even tried to ban me from praying after the service in the little mediation room , because he did not like what I was praying about. I later discovered he was a Jesuit, educated at Maynooth, yet the church he was in charge of was a Protestant church.

All religious dogmas were created by humans, so it was and is, only natural that humans write from different perspectives, and try to pretend the perspectives were/are based on truth.

It's human nature to want to know answers to mysteries. But I suggest that we don't get ahead of ourselves in the idea that we can accurately read the future, as all that occurs is that people make fools of themselves.

The problem with your lack of logic here is that Jesus Christ IS knowable. He humbled Himself, became man so that we COULD know Him.
I'm about to go on a nature walk with my family where we will be surrounded with the wonderful works and many proofs of the Divine.
AS the blessed St. Paul said, "Since the creation of the world, invisible realities, God's eternal power and divinity, have become visible, recognized through the things he has made. Therefore, You June VanDerMark, are without excuse!"
Ok, so I paraphrased a little there by inserting your name in the passage, but St. Paul's words are speaking directly to you.
I understand that is your perspective on the issue, but if you consider that the world is full of individuals with perspectives that differ from yours, you will understand that you have a concept of truth, which might have nothing in common with truth absolute.

June is not unique. She is only following in the footsteps of the one she follows, Satan.
Satan was a character devised by those who wrote the new testament. From my perspective, their aim was to frighten people into submission to believe the dogmas within the new religion.

I think He is acknowledging that people other than the Jews 'have' gods that they believe in and that the Jews shouldn't follow them. I don't think He ever says they are real.

You have a point but the rub is that if you believe in this God and follow His commandments, you cannot believe in other gods too. That makes you not a Christian or for that matter not a Jew or Muslim.

Your link came up "404 Page Not Found". Still, given what can be seen of the url, no Pagan must explain contradictions from a Christian site that is obviously there just to denigrate Wicca.
Besides, unknowable doesn't mean you can't know the existence, but the form.
The quote from that site that I posted was from Scott Cunningham's book "Wicca: A Guide for the Solitary Practitioner." And the quote goes as follows...

The All

Wicca acknowledges a supreme divine power, unknowable, ultimate from which the entire universe sprang.(Scott Cunningham). We refer to that divine power as The All. Wiccans link to that force through their deities.
>>>>>>> >>>>>>> >>>>>>> >>>>>>> >>>>>>> >>>>>>> >>>>>>> >>>>>>> >>>>>>> >>>

Unknowable means unknowable. The question of whether the universe was created, or always existed, or started with a bang, is still questionable, not "knowable."

Satan was an angel called Lucifer. He rebelled against God, and tempted mankind to do likewise.

I think it is accepted that the serpent in Genesis is Satan.

Although Satan may actually be our intrinsic evil nature.

The Jews at one time believe in many gods. Then some Jews broke away from Judaism to start the Catholic religion, and that is when the dogma changed from many gods to one god.

According to the ancient Jew, the sky was a solid plate, hammered out by the gods, and spread over the earth in order to keep up the ocean overhead: but the plate was full of little windows, which were opened whenever it became necessary to let the rain come through.

Well, it looks like Svaha is not going to explain why she called me a nutter. I didn't think she would. Never mind, the persecution of the secret family courts has given me shoulders broad enough to shrug off mean stuff like that.

I think the Lord will be coming back soon, I think I will stop posting on this blog now, as its a waste of time arguing with people who are so determined to reject his free gift of eternal life in paradise.

The subject was about why Christians can't be Wiccans. Your imput doesn't address that.
