Thoughts and Prayers

The declarations against magic are abundant in the Bible. Sure, there are very problematic aspects to this condemnation, which we will be discussing. To begin with, we can appreciate why this anti-magic stance within the Bible is problematic by envisioning a debate between a Christian and a Mage while an atheist watches. From the perspective…
