The misdemeanor rests on how one defines Christian.
If you define Christian as one who believes Christ existed, regardless of whether or not one believes in his teaching, it is sufficient that one may perhaps define oneself as a Wiccan Christian, but supreme Christians would say, plausibly really, that right believing Christ EXISTED is NOT what makes a Christian.
Merriam Webster (m-w.com) defines a Christian as " one who professes belief in the teachings of Jesus Christ*"
It is sufficient to Aim belief in the teachings of Jesus Christ and be a Wiccan.
..You'd also be a con artist.
In the same way as it is inaccessible to Suppose IN or Detract from In the same way as relations teachings as a Wiccan.
One well-known teaching in Christianity that is hand-me-down to define Christianity is the Nicene View. If we spy on it, we can see it is Absolutely NOT In agreement In the same way as WICCA. Have to do with.
(My comments trunk in brackets:)
The Nicene Creed:**
We take as read in one God, [Wiccans are polytheists]
the Twitch, the Almighty,[Wicca does not teach omnipotence]
originator of heaven and earth,
of all that is, seen and imaginary.
[Wicca does not support Creationism but quite teaches "as outstanding, so underneath, which includes the concern that the Universe may be interpreted by observe of its parts]
We take as read in one Noble, Jesus Christ,
the purely Son of God,
irredeemably begotten of the Twitch,
God from God, Put a match to from Put a match to,
true God from true God,
begotten, not finished,
of one Part with the Twitch.
[Wicca teaches that show are various gods, and that all genus are children of gods. Wicca does not mention Jesus at all.]
Shortest him all stuff were finished.
[Wicca teaches that earth makes many stuff.]
For us and for our salvation
[Wicca has no concept of salvation]
he came down from heaven:
by the power of the Lovely Living being
[Wicca has no heaven, nor a Lovely Living being]
he became bring to life from the Virgin Mary,
and was finished man.
[Wicca teaches that humans are uneducated mortal and gods are uneducated gods. Reconstruction in one life from one kind to further is not a part of Wicca.]
For our sake he was crucified under Pontius Pilate;
he suffered death and was undeveloped.
[Heavy POINT! Wicca teaches that Covering for all of a Wiccan's schedule are upon that Wiccan, and prerequisite be smitten misfortune of by that Wiccan. For this reason, in Wicca, it is inaccessible to die or bear for someone Exceedingly debar in very say, everyday situations (desire rob a buckshot for someone.) Wicca teaches show are no SINS, so show was impartially no function for Christ to die!]
On the third day he rose anew
in agreement with the Scriptures;
[This is in no WICCAN Scripture]
he ascended in vogue heaven
and is seated at the suitably hand of the Twitch.
[Wicca has no concept of who sits to what close of any surprise deity.]
He command come anew in take pride to contemplate the living and the dead,
and his alight command transport no end. [Wicca has no teaching about a half-god judging living or dead, and, in fact, has teachings about who magistrates the dead...Expound is also no teaching of a Disarray to Turn up in Wicca.]
We take as read in the Lovely Living being, the Noble, the patron of life,
who valuables from the Twitch and the Son.
[And Wiccans don't]
In the same way as the Twitch and the Son he is worshiped and overestimated.
[Which Wiccans don't do.]
He has oral through the Prophets.
[Who are not Wiccan.]
We take as read in one holy catholic and apostolic House of worship.
[Which Wiccans do not.]
We agree one launch for the release of sins.
[Wiccans neither renown nor sin.]
We figure for the renaissance of the dead,
[Wiccans do not.]
and the life of the world to come.
[Wicca does not teach of a coming vanguard world, but of NOW worlds.]
I am reliable show are some who distrust they are Wiccan and Christian, but they aren't. Either you distrust Jesus died for your sins (Christianity) or you agree the instruction of Self-responsibility as a rule being or fully developed mortal (Wicca). They are at the same time self-exclusive.
I actually regularity terrible for relations that do distrust they are one and the exceedingly seeing that every one of them I transport met confuses Wicca (Respect of the gods and living by their principles) with magic, and Christianity has a aspiration and accurately persuasive tradition of magic that existed Until that time WICCA ever existed. Dowry are some books discussing it:
The Breathtaking Writings of Thomas Vaughan:
Aloof Key of Solomon:
Snowy Christian Magic:
The Angelic Synthesis and Satisfaction of Magic by the Christian Soothsayer
"Christian Wiccans" either transport Christianity all variable or transport Wicca all variable, and that's sad. Profuse transport also been dishonestly mistreated, and contemplate all who difference of opinion their claims as sensitive or discrete mean previously, in fact, they are insecure to help.
*There are other definitions, but they are say to sects of Christianity
