if you really need to ask this, you should go back to sunday school or have more discussions with God.

There you go. You are Christian. A christian is someone who belives in Jesus Christ=Messiah+Son of God.

If you fit this criteria then you are a christian. End of discussion.

Ah, I wasn't sure if I was reading things or making it up in my head. Thank you for the clarification to my inquiry.

To answer the question about being therian and Christian; I have no idea. However, I think you can be, because you are what you are whether it be human, vampiric, or therian it shouldn't ostracize you from practicing said religion that you want to practice. However, my view of the world is skewed if you ask most of my friends I believe in many things and most of my beliefs contradict what some of my friends are, or believe. However, I don't push my view upon them due to respect and a few other reasons (mainly because I still want them to talk to me.)..

I've read parts of the bible before and I haven't seen anything that says that you have to be human to practice Christianity. From what I understand we are all born of gods grace and he accepts us in any form that we come in, so long as you accept him as well.

So I do believe it is possible to be both all you'd have to do is have faith in what you are, and faith in you're god.

yes you can. Being a therian and being a Christian are two different things and can go together. That is like saying can I be an American and Christian. Yes you can. Christianity is a religion and being therian isn't going to limit you from that. I don't even know why someone would ask this. Therian can be debated about being a lifestyle vs. an actual shifting process but it is still the same root that it is not a religion so shouldn't conflict with other beliefs.


Are you worried that you animal side might conflict with your Christian beliefs?

 yeah you can still be cristain and be a therian nothin can stop you from wat u beleive in cause i know vampires who are christain and the dont feel that anything is tryin to tell them that they cant be. the only reason most people dont think therians, vamps, ect cant be christains is only because there have been some really stupid humans who love to streach the truth about us.

myth is hardly stretching the truth, and uneducated peasants can hardly be called stupid...what we know about werewolves, vampires and the sort come from myth and folk story, so who's really stretching the truth about these creatures?  hardly those who created them...

just because people feel more animal and less human doesn't mean they're anything else but a frustrated human that needs some sort of perceived power in their life and claim it as supernatural power.

i know, it just irks me when people seem to dislike their humanity so much and fail to understand it's intracity when ultimately it's the plain ol humans that  have the ultimate power and then try to claim a religion that they don't understand to justify it.

no wonder the world is so wacky! people don't know their own power anymore, too eager to give it over to popular media and idealized occult theories.

I for one subscribe to the idea that the soul is not defined by the physical body at all. Thus a soul may take on certain characteristics according to the body it inhabits.(or bodies if we include transmigration), Some people may just like wearing the animal fur suit better than the human flesh bag.

Having said that, I do agree that people are rather silly acting like being any of these thing is exclusive to each other.


Oh and i alson think that tiger is a troll....... No not that one. The the type that lives under bridges and is troubled by billy goats.

spirit journeys make excellent shaman, not vampires, werewolves and other inhuman creatures, my daughter displays wolf like behavior, a lot of animals actually, she likes them better then other people...she's thirteen and makes a claim, will even boldly tell me to stay away she's in wolf form, i see no wolf and she takes her bath when i tell her to.

while the body and mind are connected, the mind can change, but the body can not. i was doing well until the person came on trying to justify it by dismissing christianity and then saying they were responsible.  my god has nothing to do with my inability to believe such claims and actually more to do with my old witcheries,  just because a spirit can inhabit one doesn't mean the medium is a spirit, just that they have a mind and spiritual fortitude to deal with such things on a personal level.

spiritualism is ancient, shamanism is ancient, even the idea of demonology is ancient...compared to werewolves and that sort that are glamorized are maybe a little over a hundred years old and were created as destroyers of humanity derived from country pagan folk stories and superstition, they questioned the darkness around them, not their spirituality.

It is fallacious  to say that I am this body. Better to say that I am a soul inhabiting this body.
