Do christians believe in Witchcraft?

RE: Do christians believe in Witchcraft?
Eh, depends on the Christian, depends on what you'd call witchcraft. I'm sure you can find atheists who believe in something that could be dubbed 'witchcraft' as well.

Christians in Kenya are still burning witches. There usually is another motive such as greed but the superstitions of the ir[url=https://atheistforums.org/newreply.php?tid=49158][/url]on age are still leading to the deaths of innocents.

So let's see some simple spells I can compel the dark lord to let me use.  I promise not to set any Christians on fire unless they try to set me on fire first.  Just some simple spells.  Like WIngardium Leviosa or that spell that gives you infinite replenishing sandwiches.  I'll even take accio!  My kids would get a kick out of it.

Maybe you should ask if the modern term "witch craft" has anything to do with what the bible identifies.

astrology, having a familiar spirit, etc.

Maybe not a particularly good definition for Wicca, for instance, but an amazingly precise one for Joan Quigley.  And then we come back to the $64 question, why grant a pass for that abomination ??
 The granting of a pardon is an imputation of guilt, and the acceptance a confession of it.

Same bullshit, different millennia. I'm sure you have a perfectly rational explanation as to why that's not the case, as usual.

If the Evans and Fundies can OVERULE a clear and unambiguous prohibition from God Himself, makes one wonder just how much power REAL witches can wield, don't it ?

You can't say that anymore Vorion because I have a problem with it.

We have that in common Lek! I have a serious problem with politicians consulting astrologists. I have a serious problem with them consulting Billy Graham too.

Witchcraft is not something that is well defined; of course, there are individuals who claim to be witches, but in the Middle Ages, it was thought that witchcraft was invoking the power of the Devil for malevolent or even curious purposes.
And without delay Peter went quickly out of the synagogue (assembly) and went unto the house of Marcellus, where Simon lodged: and much people followed him...And Peter turned unto the people that followed him and said: Ye shall now see a great and marvellous wonder. And Peter seeing a great dog bound with a strong chain, went to him and loosed him, and when he was loosed the dog received a man's voice and said unto Peter: What dost thou bid me to do, thou servant of the unspeakable and living God? Peter said unto him: Go in and say unto Simon in the midst of his company: Peter saith unto thee, Come forth abroad, for thy sake am I come to Rome, thou wicked one and deceiver of simple souls. And immediately the dog ran and entered in, and rushed into the midst of them that were with Simon, and lifted up his forefeet and in a loud voice said: Thou Simon, Peter the servant of Christ who standeth at the door saith unto thee: Come forth abroad, for thy sake am I come to Rome, thou most wicked one and deceiver of simple souls. And when Simon heard it, and beheld the incredible sight, he lost the words wherewith he was deceiving them that stood by, and all of them were amazed. (The Acts of Peter, 9)

My mother believed there was witchcraft. Of course she also believed that the US was the breeding ground for the Anti-Christ and that we were living in the end times.
