To understand what is spoken of as sorcery in the Bible...

You need to have a deep understanding of the nature of magick.

Otherwise you just have a bunch of half-scientists being persecuted for things that others don't understand.

I love how you point out something, say it needs clarified, point out the negative consequences of it not being clarified, and then make absolutely no attempt to actually clarify it. Bravo.

Much of what is spoken of as sorcery in the bible are various forms of divination. Divination from the Latin divinare means to foresee and be inspired through a god or spirit. These practices were banned to prevent the worship of other gods.

However even with modern science we don't have replicable studies to suggest the existence of a spiritual realm. In fact we have even less understanding of spirits and gods as our ancestors thousands of years ago.

People in the past have been persecuted for practicing primitive forms of science in the name of Christianity. On what grounds can humans condemn them when they don't fully understand what they're condemning them for?

The bible has been surprisingly lacking. In fact it never actually defines in detail any of the things we associate to sorcery. Rather it mentions them and assumes we have an understanding of what exactly qualifies as sorcery.

What evidence do you have of this?

Oh, so you don't know either?

So, as Ozzy says you point out something, say it needs clarified, point out the negative consequences of it not being clarified, and then admit that you can't clarify it?

Do you not see the uselessness of this topic?

Was about to say the same thing myself.
