Giving it up
Fri, 06-12-2009 - 1:13am
If I may, I would like to share a major, but necessary life decision I've made this evening. Before continuing though, let me say that I am not trying to criticize anyone; but just wanting to share my experience and challenging decision.
In my previous posts, I've explained that I am christian and am a child of God. I've also written that despite my christian beliefs and values, that I have dabbled into the Occult. Or termed by others as witchcraft, black magic.
In my mind, I tried rationalizing my study of witchcraft (sorry everyone for terming the occult as witchrcraft, but I just terming th Occult how its thought of by others) as harmless, as ok and they god knew my true self.
Since I never, and I mean never participating in spells or rituals, I often told myself that my hands were clean.
Tonight though, despite how much I enjoy the Occult, I've decided that I will no longer participate in it any longer.
I'm not criticizing the pagans or others who are still active in the occult, but for me,, I have to give it up!

if you enjoy it, then why are you giving it up?

You are right when you noted that the occult is not the same as witchcraft.
