It seems that the culture is increasingly spiritual, but not in a Biblical way.
Today we are looking at the rise in witchcraft, tarot and spells and what God thinks of all of that. (Spoiler: God doesn’t love it.)
Many surveys and smarter people than me have made the observation that we are now in a generation of people who are, by and large, spiritual but not religious. Yet, the practice of spirituality could be at an all time high. Our culture is religious. We always will be because humans ARE religious. We may try, but we cannot escape this.
And we are in the culturally strange place right now where we are leaving the modern scientific age that has led to all sorts of life saving and prolonging and bettering advancements, we are leaving that age and moving to the age of cult-like adherence to spiritual leaders. Some claim to be doctors and scientists; most are some kind of ‘expert’. And many people in America just blindly follow. Or, if they have questions, they are removed from social media.This is leading to people seemingly going back in time to paganist rituals like witchcraft and devil worship and spell casting.
It should go without saying, but for the sake of being thorough, God does not approve of witchcraft and the occult. Here are just a couple references for you.
Do not turn to mediums or seek out spiritists, for you will be defiled by them. I am the LORD your God. Leviticus 19:31. Actually much of Leviticus 19-20 deals with this, you can go read that if you want some light reading for today!
Of course, Paul deals with this as well.
The acts of the flesh are obvious, sexual immorality, impurity and debauchery, idolatry and witchcraft, hatred, discord, jealousy, fits of rage, selfish ambition, dissension, factions and envy, drunkenness, orgies, and the like. I warn you, as I did before, those who live like this will not inherit the kingdom of God. Galatians 5:19-21
