Ritualistic Abuse: Fruit of Neo-Paganism

The manifestation of Neo-Paganism (e.g., nature worship, self-worship, Satan worship) in many world cultures today has brought with it the ghastly phenomenon of ritualistic abuse. Ritualistic abuse, a term almost unheard of in some ministerial circles, is the lawless mistreatment of persons against their will during or as a result of pagan religious rites or exercises. Ritualistic abuse occurs in either cultic or occultic (secret worship) ceremonies. God declares ritualistic abuse to be sin and reveals in Deuteronomy 18:10: "There shall not be found among you anyone who makes his son or his daughter pass through the fire [ritualistic abuse], or one who practices witchcraft, or a soothsayer, or one who interprets omens, or a sorcerer.…"

Difficult Biblical Passages for Jehovah's Witnesses

What is the difference between white and black magic?

I have heard this basic differentiation: Black magic is intended to cause harm and is evil; white magic seeks to heal, not harm. While that may be true, you have to ask the simple question, "What is the source of the power?" If it is anything but the power of Almighty God, then it is to be avoided at all costs.

God will never allow himself to be degraded to the point of being summoned to cast a spell or to levitate an object. I can promise you that will never happen. So, right away, you can rule out most "magic" as being of the devil.

The New Age movement believes that mankind is at the brink of entering a "new age" which people must evolve toward, both mentally and spiritually. New Age proponents proclaim that the good in all people is actually their gods within them, lying dormant, awaiting their spiritual awakening.
