I’m not Pagan – I’m an open-minded Christian. I wear an upright Pentacle; is it okay for me to wear is even though I’m not Pagan?

“I’m not pagan, Im an open minded Christian; but I have this odd fascination with Wicca & Paganism. I dont nessesarily want to convert; I just find it so interesting. I came across an upright silver pentacle with blue diamonds in it. I can’t remember where I got it but I love wearing it; it’s beautiful. Is it okay for me to wear it even though I am not pagan? Many Blessings, Asher”

Dear Asher (is that your real name? That’s an awesome name!),

I wish more people were as open-minded as you are. The simple answer to y our question: Yes. It’s perfectly okay to wear a pentacle.

Ancient historians have actually found scriptures that before Jesus was crucified, his followers represented him with a pentagram. It wasn’t until some years after his crucifixion that Christians started using the Cross.

Anyway. It’s perfectly okay to wear a pentacle. Just because you wear it doesn’t necessarily mean you’re representing it. I see people wearing Stars of David, the Egyptian Cross, Eye of Horus, the Om, etc., but that doesn’t necessarily mean that they’re that religion. Being religious doesn’t always mean being religious about your one only religion – Religion is about personal beliefs, so it’s okay to incorporate symbols, certain beliefs, etc. into your own spirituality.

Many Pagans and Wiccans wear the Cross. Perhaps to hide their own religion, or because they grew up Christian and still feel a connection with it. Being connected or have an interest in something from a different religion doesn’t hurt your own whatsoever. I think if anything, you’re supporting a cause; a cause of tolerance and open-mindedness. And that’s pretty amazing. For someone who isn’t Pagan to support, understand, and explain Paganism in a positive light, it’s one step closer for everyone to eventually feel and see the same way.

Blessed Be,
Sage
