No. Witchcraft is a magical system which can be practiced by a person of any religion or no religion.

There are religions for whom witchcraft is an integral part of religious life such as Wicca. There are magical systems that require no religious affiliation such as Hoodoo.

There are also people who consider themselves to be Jewish Witches, Christian Witches and Atheist Witches.

There's a saying in the pagan community, "All Wiccans are witches but not all witches are Wiccan." Try saying that 3 times fast.

I think the whole premise of the craft is that we as human beings are co creators. It does take my mind to the biblical idea that we are made in the image of God, which Christians typically take rather literally. I see that idea as being somewhat true, only in a spiritual sense, which makes more sense, since God has no physical form. It would also imply that part of that creative force is within us, to be wielded as we like.

It is my belief that we create our reality through our thoughts, words, and actions, and if focused, humans can change their circumstances. Witchcraft is simply a method of focusing those thoughts, words, and actions.
