Bible Study Post #14 (Numbers): Magick & Curses

Numbers 5:19

  • And the priest shall charge her by an oath, and say unto the woman, If no man have lain with thee and if thou hast not gone aside to uncleanness with another instead of thy husband, be thou free from this bitter water that causeth the curse

In Numbers it talks about a spell that the priest casts that determines if a woman has cheated on her husband.  The curse in itself isn’t important concerning the specifics although it is a bit sexist.

  1. The Old Testament is the history of Christianity that is believed to have happened, and therefore believing that the bible is the truth would also mean that you believe this curse existed.  And if this curse existed curses in general existed.
  2. You can argue that the curse used the power of God as its origin of power, and a good portion of older magick is based on a higher power.  Using the power of Gods, the Sun, the Moon, the Earth.

Does this mean being a Christian also mean that you believe in Magick?
