Apostasy , or falling from faith is only a sin in the Abrahamic traditions, in which they can be punishable by excommunication or execution. Wicca and Neopaganism, like Hinduism and Buddhism, do not even acknowledge the concept of apostasy. Thus, in turning away from the Lord and Lady, you can expec…t no reprisal. Keep in mind that monotheism as practiced within Christianity and Islam are unique to these faiths. All other faiths, especially the classical ones, acknowledge the existence of multiple gods in multiple pantheons. In fact, it is because of this, and the activism of early Christians that they fell out of favor and, commonly, into the Roman circus as lion chow. But the Lord and Lady are incarnate in all gods and goddesses, hence, in the Wiccan and Neopagan perspective not only is Yahweh respected, but is, in fact an aspect of the Lord. Yahweh's consort, Asherah who is no longer exalted within Judeo-Christianity, is similarly an aspect of the lady, and hence is sometimes honored as such. (So think of her when you eat your next cheese steak sandwich). This means that technically one can be Christian and Pagan at the same time. This being how you define yourself. Conservative Faiths like to withhold the status of Christianity from those they feel have deviated too far (say Jehovah's Witnesses, LDS or Unitarians, even Catholics). But if you understand that the Lord and the LORD are one and the same, you can walk on both paths. The only wrath you will ever face in Wicca is that which is similar to the concept of karma: that evil which you visit upon the world will return to you threefold. The same is true for the blessings and works you give. Follow the Wiccan Rede with diligence and the Lady's blessings will be upon you. (MORE)

Bob: PrabhupÄda, people that engage in religions, like these "Jesus freaks" and other people, claim that Jesus is guiding them. Can this be so?. ÅrÄ«la PrabhupÄda: Yes, but they are not taking the guidance. Just like the Christians. Jesus is guiding them, "Thou shalt not kill," but they …are killing. Where is the Jesus guidance? Simply saying, "I am guided by Jesus Christ"-will that do? "But I don't care for his words." Is that guidance? Nobody is being guided by Jesus Christ. Their claim is false. It is very hard to find a man who is actually being guided by Jesus Christ. Jesus Christ's guidance is available, but nobody is caring for him. They have taken Jesus Christ as contractor to take up their sins. That is their philosophy. They commit all kinds of sins, and poor Jesus Christ will be responsible. That is their religion. Therefore they say, "We have a very good religion. For all our sinful activities, Jesus Christ will die." So is that good religion? They have no sympathy for Jesus Christ. He died for our sins. Why should we commit sins again? Such a great life has been sacrificed for our sins, so we should be guided by Jesus Christ. But if you take it otherwise-"Ah, we shall go on committing all sins, and Jesus Christ will make a contract to nullify all my sins; I'll simply go to the church and confess and come back and again do all nonsense"-do you think that shows very good intelligence?. Bob: No.. ÅrÄ«la PrabhupÄda: Actually, one who is guided by Jesus Christ will certainly get liberation. But it is very hard to find a man who is actually being guided by Jesus Christ.. Bob: What about the "Jesus freaks," the young people that have joined the Jesus movement? They read the Bible very often, and they try to-. ÅrÄ«la PrabhupÄda: But violence is against the Bible's injunctions. How can they kill if they are following the Bible?. Bob: I asked one this, and he claimed that Jesus was also eating meat in the Bible.. ÅrÄ«la PrabhupÄda: That's all right. He may eat anything. He is powerful. But he has ordered, "Thou shalt not kill. You must stop killing." He is powerful. He can eat the whole world. But you cannot compare to Jesus Christ. You cannot imitate Jesus Christ; you have to abide by his order. Then you are guided by Jesus Christ. That is actually obedience. That is explained in the BhÄgavata. One who is Ä«Åvara, who is empowered, can do anything, but we cannot imitate. We have to abide by his order: "What he says to me, that I will do." You cannot imitate. You say that Jesus Christ ate meat. Admitting that, you do not know in what condition he ate meat. He is himself eating meat, but he is advising others not to kill. Do you think that Jesus Christ was contradicting himself?. Bob: No.. ÅrÄ«la PrabhupÄda: He cannot do that. That is real faith in him-that he cannot do that. So why has he eaten meat? He knows, but he has asked me not to kill. I have to follow. That is the real system. You are not Jesus Christ; you cannot imitate him. He has sacrificed his life for God. Can you. do that? So why shall you imitate Jesus Christ? You are imitating Jesus Christ by eating meat. Why not imitate Jesus Christ and sacrifice your life for spreading God consciousness? What do you think? Yes, when you preach you can say what you think. They are so-called Christians-but what are they doing for God? Just consider the sun. The sun is absorbing urine. Can you drink urine? If you want to imitate the sun-"Oh, here is the sun absorbing urine. Let me drink urine"-can you? Jesus Christ is powerful; he can do everything. But we cannot imitate; we have to simply abide by his order. That is real Christianity.. (MORE)

Only you can come up with a good name! Titles come from the story , not from some anonymous person on the internet! Titles are not as important as some writers think - your title might change many times between your first write and your final draft! Think about your story - what is going on and …who are the people involved? What is something special about the story that might make a good title? Don't sweat it - just write something down and get on with the story! (MORE)
