Several questions: 1) I've heard there are many sects to the wiccan practice. Does anyone know how many and why? Is this disunity? 2) Are all wiccans also pagans and vise-versa? I noticed many list themselves as "experts" in both. 3) How does your practice define the difference between the "soul" and the "spirit"? 4) How do you view the christian bible? Does it hold any truths/beliefs for you? I appreciate your time and effort, and value your opinions.

I am kind of a beginner, but I really wanted to have a say in some of the matters.
1) What I have to add is that you don't have to belong to any of the brenches. You can follow your own heart and mix different views. What's great about Wiccanism is that you are a Wiccan the way you want to be.
2) I think the others had already answered that.
3)The soul is inside you. The spirit is in everything in nature. Everything in nature lives.
4) My mother says that the Bible is a fairy tale book. I agree with her. It does have some historical background, but most of the are myths. They do have some moral teachings. These teachings are interpreted in different ways according to the individual. There are some visions in it. I don't really know if they are just fantasies or maybe the visions of a seer.
Hope I could help.
Merry Part and Bright Blessings!
