This question was sent to Elijah at The Underground Bible.
“Hi, I’d like to know what are the truths about man doing Witchcraft and man being Homosexual? What about Astrology predictions and palm reading too? Please help me. I’m 20 years old and very confused with this world. Thanks.” -Style
Thank you for your questions.
The Bible teaches: Rebellion is the sin of Witchcraft. This means a person using, dabbling, or playing with, witchcraft is doing so because they are rebelling against God.
“For rebellion is as the sin of witchcraft, and stubbornness is as iniquity and idolatry. Because thou hast rejected the word of the LORD, he hath also rejected thee from being king.” -1 Samuel chapter 15, verse 23
“And he caused his children to pass through the fire in the valley of the son of Hinnom: also he observed times, and used enchantments, and used witchcraft, and dealt with a familiar spirit, and with wizards: he wrought much evil in the sight of the LORD, to provoke him to anger.” -2 Chronicles chapter 33, verse 6
“This I say then, Walk in the Spirit, and ye shall not fulfil the desire of the flesh. Now the desires of the flesh are revealed, which are these: Idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies…” -Galations chapter 5, verses 16, 19 & 20
Man being Homosexual? is explained in the Bible as being a punishment from God for a person rejecting Him.
“The wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness; because that which may be known about God is revealed in them; because God hath showed it unto them:
Because the invisible things about God are clearly seen since the creation of the world, being understood by the things that are created, even God’s eternal power and (the nature of God (Godhead); so that they are without excuse:
Because, when they knew God, they did not glorify God as God, neither were they thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish brain was darkened.
Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools, and changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like corruptible man, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things.
Therefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the desires of their own brains, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves:
Who changed the truth about God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen.
Because of this, God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use (of their bodies) into that which is against nature:
And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their desire one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that reward of their error which was justified.
And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God turned them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient for Mankind…” -Romans chapter 1, verses 18 through 28
What about Astrology predictions and palm reading?
“There shall not be found among you any one that maketh his son or his daughter to pass through the fire, or that useth divination, or an observer of times (Astrology predictions), or an enchanter, or a witch, or a charmer, or a consulter with familiar spirits (palm reading), or a wizard, or a necromancer. For all that do these things are an abomination unto the LORD: and because of these abominations the LORD thy God doth drive them out from before thee.” -Deuteronomy chapter 18, verses 10 through 12
I hope this helps you.
