God's Word roundly condemns paganism and witchcraft, as you may already know. If you believe, as some pagans do, that Jesus was a witch, the Bible will disabuse you of that notion. If you are determined to stick with paganism, then you should know how the living God feels about it.

The Bible tells us that there is only one God (Deuteronomy 4:35, 39; 6:4; Isaiah 43:10-11; 44:6-8; 45:5-6, 14, 18, 21-2; 46:9; 1 Timothy 1:17; James 2:19; Jude 25) and no other gods existed before God and none will exist after Him (Isaiah 43:10) nor do any exist alongside Him (Isaiah 44:6, 8; 45:5-6, 14, 21; 46:9) and although there is only one God (1 Corinthians 8:4-6) there are many false gods and goddesses (Galatians 4:8). Those who worship false gods and goddesses are denounced (Exodus 23:13; Deuteronomy 4:3, 19; 8:19-20; 16:21-2; Joshua 24:20; Judges 2:10-15; 3:7-8; 10:6-16; 1 Kings 11:32-3; Psalm 81:8-9; Jeremiah 11:9-17)

Pagans often worship nature, but although God created nature (Genesis 1) He is not identical with creation (Psalm 102:25-7; 113:5-6; Isaiah 40:22-5; Romans 1:25) and nothing can be compared to Him (Psalm 89:6; 113:5-6; Isaiah 40:18, 25; 46:5)

We are told to worship God alone (Exodus 23:25-6; Deuteronomy 6:13; 2 Kings 17:39; Psalm 99:5, 9; Luke 4:8; Hebrews 12:28; Revelation 14:7; 22:9) and forbidden to worship that which is not God (Exodus 20:3-5; 34:14; Deuteronomy 6:13-4; 8:19-20).

Also, in the 1800's when they translated the bible to english, they replaced gods real name wth "the lord" because they felt that his real name, (which should be found in psalms 83:18) Jehovah was to sacred to be used. The bible in its original translationof hebrew would have been directly translated to Yah Weh. Which is nowdays translated to Jehovah.
The Bible (AKA: God's word) never could have condemned paganism since no one of biblical times knew it even existed! Who are you to say that the God that pagans worship isn't that same God you do? Remember, the God Muslims worship happens to be the very same God from your Bible.

The bible can't even be based on god word, that roman guy sat down with a bunch of friends to figure out what to put and what to take out of the bible

That roman guy? Looks like someone watches History Channel, but doesn't absorb much...
Well, technically, any deviation from the prescribed method of ordinances was specifically not condoned. That's one reason why the Jewish leaders at the time of Christ looked down on the Samaritans. But please understand, I don't condone this Bible bashing on slasinki's part. I do my best to aboid this mess, especially considering the anti-traditional religion mess that was the last thread. . .
So your book, written by men is more correct than the books written by the pagan men who were at least equally devoted to their religion? Every religion is equally correct. One is not better than another. It's the people of the religions that the religions should be judged. Are they more or less hypocritical than those of another religion? In my experience, most overly enthusiastic (radical/charismatic) members of any religion tend to be the biggest hypocrites. They also tend to be the one's more likely to point a condemning finger toward those of other religions.
