Naturally, I think that anyone who thinks that they understand everything that happens is a fool.
Sure, everything can be explained, but you might not know the explanation, or like the explanation if you knew it.
To those who say that everything can be explained by science, I say: I’m sure that people in the time of Aristotle thought the same thing. Do you want to contend that they were correct?
Also, I did some research after someone said that the Harry Potter books were fun, but be careful because magic is evil. So I decided to look and see what the Bible actually has to say on the subject. Here is what I found:
The Bible uses several words on the subject: Wizards, Witch, Sorcerer, Magician, Witchcraft. In all these cases, these words seem to be referring to one of three things:
1. Worshiping other gods
2. Fortune telling
3. Contacting the dead, usually for the purpose of fortune telling
These three things can be reduced to a single principle: You should look to the Lord your God for direction, not to these sources which only distract you.
Nowadays, these words have come to be used for everything from firearms to ESP, but that does not mean that they are the things the Bible warned against. I use some of these words in my everyday life. But when I perform a backing maneuver that required some skill (I am a truck driver), and refer to it as a magic trick, I don’t mean that I asked Thor for assistance. When I call my brother a computer wizard, I don’t mean that he contacts the dead to assist him.
On the other hand, when I refer to John Edwards (of the TV show Crossing Over) or someone like him as a necromancer, I DO mean that they are doing something specifically warned against in the Bible.
Something to think about.
