Hi again!Zitat von McDozer
Well, first of all: be careful while talking about witchcraft. Look in the old testament. We got an example of a 'classic wizard' there. This guy was chosen to lead a selected people out of slavery - indeed - Moses. Moses is always shown with a beard and a stick while having his arguments with Pharao (who was by the way stubborned by the LORD of Moses). What did this guy do? Well, he was showing up a little more than the wizards of Egpyt. :-> The Bible is talking about something like witchcraft here. Of course doing and trying these kinds of things or any witchcraft was forbidden to the people: the LORD would have lost control.
Or think of the calf Aaron put up: how come that Aaron misled the Israelites? Did not Aaron mislead them? Who was punished? The Israelites! Stricter laws - it is that easy. Aaron stayed in position. So this action can be seen as a method to suppress the people - mislead and punish. The politicians stay in control - authorized by the LORD. But does that not hint us that in the desert the leaders and the people did serve several 'gods'?
Look at the law in the old testament. What do you recognize? A law which is similar to today's Scharia. This just is a hint that the same (kind of) evil powers still do their politics as in the days of Moses and Aaron.
Now to the psalms. What are they? - The psalms are callings. This can be seen as witchcraft by the way. Did you know that scriptures exist that correspond with the psalms. The 'Christians' seem not to recognize that there are some hidden powers in the book they consider holy. Why do some of them just use verses of the very book to argue? To tell you the way I see that: this is a kind of closed system they are shut in: can also been seen as witchcraft. And this used by the personalities that know - be sure of that.
Better jugde the gods by their mentality - not just by the way you are told - not to jugde. Much is hidden to you - isn't that occult?
