    As far as I'm aware as a new Wiccan, the deities of Wicca aren't psychopathic monsters as the Christian God has proven himself to be in the Bible. The deities of Wicca aren't jealous and vindictive gods, and they don't threaten you with torture and suffering in an eternal hell for the mistakes you make in your life. There is no guilt, shame and fearmongering in Wicca and there are no threats of judgment and punishment. I can't express how deeply relieved I am to finally be free of my former religion. It took me years to free myself from its heavy shackles, and I never want to be imprisoned by it again. I only wish I had found Wicca years ago rather than waste thirty years of my life being hoodwinked by a religion that caused me such immense heartache, guilt and sadness. I realize that I have much more to learn and experience in Wicca, and I'm looking forward to the spiritual journey. If the Wiccans on this forum have any advice for me, please feel free to share it with me. I would be truly grateful for the friendly advice and guidance.

    I'm glad you've freed yourself from the constraints of Abrahamic religion but if you read mythology the old gods could also be just as fickle and vengeful.

    I'm assuming your not Traditional Wicca so which deities have you choosen for your god and goddess?

    I am so happy to hear that you feel free! Yes, the deities of Wicca are more understanding and kind than the Abrahamic deity.

    I haven't chosen a god and goddess yet. I'm still relatively new to Wicca, and I'm still learning.

    That's fine, many new converts to paganism start with generalised concepts of the god/esses. As knowledge builds and we become more in tune with those who call us, more specific deities are chosen for our worship.
