What specifically is wrong with magic and sorcery?

What do Abrahmic religions have against witchcraft, magic, and sorcery? Do they realise that magic spells don’t work and that magic isn’t real? I have never seen anyone cast a spell that worked, magick is just as silly as believing in some magic pixie who lives in the sky.
How can magick be a bad thing if it doesn’t even work?

Magick used correctly is wholesome and good, used incorrectly can cause harm. Just like any decision or power even political. Yes magick does work, but perhaps not in the way you were looking for. It is not some trick we who use it pull out at parties to impress our friends, but actual changes being made through the use of natural energy and focus.

It is of the devil. And uh….yes spells do work. Just because you haven’t witnessed anything to doesn’t make them not real. The arguement kind of goes along the lines of……….if you have never seen an aardvark then how do you know they are real? Magic is like prayer. It is all energy and can be proved by Quantum Mechanics and Bell’s Theory which states that all things in the universe are connected in an immediate and intimate way even at the sub atomic level. This is supported by the EPR Effect in which states that electrons are created in… Read more »

God has nothing against magic for the sake of entertainment.
God opposes witchcraft (where by definition a human being is in contact with a demonic spirit). That kind of figures being demons are hostile to their Creator.

It’s a fraud. It doesn’t work.

I’ve had dozens of wiccan friends, and I’ve asked all of them to try spells on me. No one ever even tried.

It’s your opinion that it doesn’t work. We who know what we are doing with it know otherwise. And I don’t care what abrahamic religions think about it.
