Yeah, i have the belief that god, whoever you make out, him or her to be, controls all religion, and that we can do whatever, because god knows we are talking to the all mighty in different ways...i would like to know though, since wiccans believe there's a god for just about everything, since i only believe in one, but, many of the wiccan beliefs, can i still be a witch???

Hi Harvey
First of all, there are many magickal practices outside of wicca. From Gnosticism to Shamanism there are a plethora of people working magic. As for your beleif in God, it is a view I share. But beleif in one supreme being does not exclude the minor deities. You can think of it in a number of ways but basically in my opinion, there are a number of valid deities and higher spirits, but they all still report to the head honcho. Wiccans suggest a study period of a year and a day before you commit yourself to the practice, but I would actually recommend a couple years of research into all the religions, magickal practices and theologies to see for yourself how they all tie together. Then once you have found what truly fits for you then dedicate yourself to the study of that particular practice. Do not worry about excluding the minor deities in your worship if it feels uncomfortable to you, God will understand. Well there's much more I could say about it, but I don't feel like writing a book right now. If you have any more questions just post them.

Best wishes,

I was worried after reading Harvey's message that someone would post something saying 'how can you be wiccan but believe in God... or one God' or some of the other things i have gotten from people that don't understand anything about Wicca. I'm glad that someone posted a nice, honest message.. now i don't have to! haha I will also answer any questions you may have Harvey. you may e-mail me if you like. :)
