So, what is good to take from Christianity ? What practice or beleif from christianity worth it ?
From a point of view of spiritual and magickal growth ?

I was raised in a very wowo christian familly and sure there were strange things happening so that's why I haven't had a hard time beleiving in occultism. But what made me quitting Christianity is how my parents raised me and how it affected me badly. I wish I was raised normally.
But I do know Christianity has at least some power...

I can say yes Christianity can be considered to be magical and occultic act depending on the angle you look at it.

Depends on what type of Christianity you're practicing or studying.
At some point, if you are going to attempt to apply these teaching magically, you will find yourself walking down the path of the Gnostics and other mystical traditions.

But if you deprive yourself of the esoteric and just stick to the exoteric,
then you'll get nothing out of it beyond the surface.

It's basically up to the individual whether knowledge of something turns out to be fruitful or not.

"For, precisely as when our souls are moved by some ordinary cause,
so the soul moves all the members of the body to contribute something
toward the accomplishment of a contemplated work."

I first noticed when I was 14 (around the first time I renownced Christianity) that once I had made it public knowledge, I was never treated or even looked at the same way. I could only stand this for so long before I had convinced myself life would be easier if I just conformed back with them. So I did, around 17. However, the original feeling that it wasn't right never left. And the looks and judgmental energies also never left. That culminated into me and my parents becoming un-co-habitable. I lived with friends for awhile. Then, around 18 1/2 I lived with them again to help them fix up their house to sell it and move to Malaysia, where they are now. I then lived with my grandparents for a bit while I had a job, that didn't work out once I lost my job. I then lived on the streets for awhile (taking breaks here and there stying with friends when possible) until I ran into an old friend whom took me in graciously. I stayed with him until I met my current life partner, which I then rotated between living with them (between Orland and Chico California) Then I got another job and lived with my sister for awhile, but after work told me I couldn't work until summer, my sister and everyone whom lived with us at the time told me I had to go. So I've pretty much been abandoned by the Christian community that I was raised in, including my own family. So I have a very complicated relationship with Christianity (and through my studies, in turn, all the Abrahamic faiths really) I'm a Gnostic Wiccan/Pagan. Speaking from personal experience.. I have found little to no Magic in the religion. Only oppression and suffering.
