    It's common sense. There are organizations, books, and many other things that leads to the conclusion that people still practice sorcery today. The Bible says there is nothing new under the sun.

    Yes. I agree completely. It is very dangerous.

    Try reading a bunch of Christian articles about the evilness of psychics and prayerfully examine the Scriptures.
    Read testimonies of those Christians who used to be psychics.
    It will then become obvious.

    There are only two kingdoms. God's kingdom and the devil's kingdom. If it is a miracle or super natural working then the Bible should talk about it. If the Bible is silent on the issue, then it is a working of Satan. This is very simple to figure out.

    Because your statements act like you have not seen the show. Either that or you completely forgot about it. It is obvious she operates by magic and she uses spells. There is character listing on the internet of a whole list of spells that she uses. That is magic. Hello?

    This is splitting hairs. It's all magic and or sorcery and is the working of the dark arts and or by the power the enemy! If you believe otherwise, then please give us a biblical example of a supernatural power that is neutral in the Bible as being okay with God.

    Your missing the point. ANYTHING to do with sorcery or magic or witchcraft is evil and it is not of God. If you believe otherwise, prove your case with the Bible.

    Try reading some testimonies of Christians who were into witchcraft and they will tell you the same thing.

    Yes, oddly NOT because it works but because it distracts. I don’t want to say it leads us away from God, as God is close. More, it darkens our vision. It opens us to greater and greater distractions. It leads to an unsound mind, and places on us great chains of our own making; it leads into sin and GREAT darkness.

    This is basic educational stuff here. It is pretty common place to understand by most that magic, witchcraft, sorcery are all the same thing. For wizards do what? They do magic, right? What about sorcerers? They do magic, right?

    There are children of the wicked one in this world. God The Father Knows who they are. It is unlikely that a witch would attend a True Christian Church without being rejected by God The Father. I once heard a testimony about a certain preacher who was, as I recall, doing a revival. There were some number of witches heckling the preacher as I recall. Anyway, the preacher asked The Good Lord to put them to sleep and to sleep they put. Considering who witchcraft follows knowingly or unknowingly is opposed to The Gospel.

    I never said to ignore the enemy. I think you missed the point of my reply. Sorry about that. Take care.

    I never heard this. Do you have any evidence to back that might indicate where it happened?

    Allow pagans into your church and eventually you will have no church. The Lutherans are fighting with this now, and by all accounts they are losing.

    The fact people worship them is.



    There is no god of the internet, yet in some fashion people worship it just the same. Distractions lead to addiction which leads to fealty, all of which trends down a path of destruction.



    That is pretty much it.

    To destroy the Christian church from within. It is an old tactic.

    For the same reasons I don’t think everybody who knows how to use a knife is murderer, I don’t feel like people who have innate gifts they are automatically evil. I use my knife to dice onions, not my neighbor, and I use whatever psychic skills I may or may not have as parlor tricks to weird out my MIL, not possess people or summon demons.

    Call it whatever you want, Wicca, Satanism, Black Magic, White Magic, Illusionist, Magician, Wizard or Sorceress, it all draws its power from the exact same place. I am not trying to make you mad, but the truth is simple. All of these roads lead to the same destination.

    I've heard of some Catholics that do not believe there is a devil, and yet others conduct exorcisms. It doesn't seem like you believe there is a devil either. Is that just you or the entire EO church?

    Nobody said it wasn’t magic, just that she wasn’t a witch practicing witchcraft. I have three boys and a husband who worked for like a decade in a comic book store. I’ve forgotten more about comic book timelines and superhero movies and alternate storylines and spinoff storylines and superhero cartoons than most people remember...

    And that’s saying something because my fandom of supreme and ultimate knowledge isn’t superheroes. I could out “Star Wars” George Lucas in a Jedi contest on the Forest Moon of Endor.

    You want me to find Biblical support for it a character in a comic book series being a magician instead of a witch?

    I will look up what God says about the Justice League right after I look up the comparative value of leprechauns to unicorns. With St P’s right around the corner, that seems more pressing.

    Gonna circle back to how this area is kind of my area of knowledge, much like “Star Wars” and the regional availability of Doritos. I ran the largest online metaphysical forum on the internet for like a decade. I see things. I know things. Things like the basic fundamentals of the community which I gave a platform to...
