Hi, guys —

My significant other, who I am planning to marry, is Catholic but has a strong interest in further exploring her spirituality through the Wiccan religion. She has practiced before and recently has found a Wiccan church to take part in.

I want to be supportive of her and try to understand what good there is in this new religion she is exploring but at the same time I feel like these church meetings attract some shady and possibly dangerous people.

  • Would it be sinful for me to go to Wiccan meetings with her?

I do not want to join her religion but want to understand it and, more importantly, make sure that she is safe.

Bob replied:

Robert,

Wicca is paganism, and is contrary to Christianity in virtually every respect. It is spiritually dangerous and should not be encouraged.

  • If you should marry, do you want to raise your children as such?

I would flee from it and have a serious heart to heart talk with your beloved, perhaps even meeting with a priest together.

There is too much to include as far as doctrinal issues here but I would suggest finding a good book in a Christian bookstore that explains the ins and outs thoroughly. In short, Jesus is the only Savior and she needs Him, not the sky, earth, wind and fire. (He made those things by the way.)

Peace,

Bob Kirby
