So, christians, can you please explain to me why magick, witchcraft, and the occult are evil?

  1. If the power doesn’t come from God, then there is only one other source. God says not to have anything to do with it, so obviously, the power isn’t coming from Him.

  2. Let’s see. They go against God. They cause harm to others.
    That explains it.
    I am not referring to illusionists such as David Copperfield or Houdini. I am talking about voodoo, etc.
    WOW You send hate mail and nasty grams to those who disagree with you. What a bigot!

  3. Because it doesn’t support their religion, and casts doubt upon it. Anything that contradicts their doctrine is labaled as Satanic in origin.

  4. God IS Creator of ALL and ‘you’ are just worshiping ‘things’ and not Him. (First Commandment.) for starters and your own vain imaginations conjure up more baloney anyway!!

  5. I bet you your most common answer is going to be “because it’s done with the power of the devil” or “god does not approve”

  6. None of it evil or wrong, just what people take from it. It is fun and meant for entertainment purposes only, just like the Ouija board.

  7. The Christians did not make up the rules concerning witchcraft, the bible states that it is entertaining sinful nature:…
    Read Galatians 5:20
    Revelations and
    Exodus 22:18
    These are just a few biblical books where they discuss these things as being evil……

  8. back when christianity was in it’s infancy, the pagan religions were a threat to the growing power base in rome. the solution was to spread the word that all such things were “of satan” and send out the mouth frothing masses to commit genocide in the name of god.
    the idea became part of the christian psyche

  9. I am a liberal Christian. I see nothing wrong with the things you’ve cited. But I think they can be used for evil. Just like anything else. Even Christianity is evil if it is misused, misrepresented, abused or exploited. Such as when religious leaders say you must give a tithe to the church or for “God’s work.” It is not true that we have to give a tithe, or ten percent of our income. In the Old Testament tithes are talked about. They were for a limited time and only for a specific people at a specific time. Thousands of years ago! And it was for the building of a particular Temple. Once the money was put to work and the Temple was built they no longer had to give a tithe. Tithes were reinstated thousands of years later by church leaders who wanted to increase the revenue of the church. Modern televangelists like Kenneth Copeland preach that people should tithe, and then a commercial comes on for you to buy a book or a tape from him. By the way, has anyone besides me noticed that Kenneth Copeland has really gross looking eyes? Like a demon’s eyes?

  10. I love the answers that are coming up. But, I have never seen or spoke with a demon, nor do i believe in Satan, and, the bible was written by man, not any god, so it can be filled with hypocrisies and bigotries.

  11. These answers are absurd. They are coming from the same mentality that claimed that electricity was the devil’s work because it “didn’t come from (their) god,” and that the Earth had to be the center of the universe because their religion says so.
    THE BIBLE DOES NOT SAY THOU SHALT NOT SUFFER A WITCH TO LIVE unless it has been horribly mistranslated! The original word used to mean “Witch” is m’khashepah, which actually means “someone who kills with poison or magic.” So anyone claiming that the Bible speaks against Witchcraft doesn’t know their own holy book at all.
    Magick can be used to do bad things, but that has nothing to do with the morality of the magick itself anymore than a car is to blame for someone driving like an idiot and causing a wreck.
    Seeing as the vast majority of people who do magick and Witchcraft do not believe in Satan we can’t exactly be worshiping him, now can we? If we wanted to worship an evil being, we would worship the Christian god:
    If a man have a stubborn and rebellious son, which will not obey the voice of his father, or the voice of his mother, and that, when they have chastened him, will not hearken unto them: Then shall his father and his mother lay hold on him, and bring him out unto the elders of his city, and unto the gate of his place; And they shall say unto the elders of his city, This our son is stubborn and rebellious, he will not obey our voice; he is a glutton, and a drunkard. And all the men of his city shall stone him with stones, that he die: so shalt thou put evil away from among you; and all Israel shall hear, and fear. — Deuteronomy 21:18-21
    And ye shall eat the flesh of your sons, and the flesh of your daughters shall ye eat. — Leviticus 26:29
    Happy shall he be, that taketh and dasheth thy little ones against the stones. — Psalm 137:9
    “And there came out a fire from the LORD, and consumed the two hundred and fifty men that offered incense.” — Numbers 16:35
    “If a man abide not in me, he is cast forth as a branch, and is withered; and men gather them, and cast them into the fire, and they are burned.” — John 15:6
    “The Lord Jesus … in flaming fire taking vengeance on them that know not God … who shall be punished with everlasting destruction.” — 2 Thessalonians 1:7-9
    “The same shall drink of the wine of the wrath of God …he shall be tormented with fire and brimstone … And the smoke of their torment ascendeth up for ever and ever.” — Revelation 14:10-11
    “The fearful, and unbelieving … shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone.” — Revelation 21:8
    “Let burning coals fall upon them: let them be cast into the fire; into deep pits, that they rise not up again.” — Psalm 140:10
