What is the occult?
Here's the answer:
The occult is defined by their secret practices that are focused on the supernatural.
Everything within the occult goes against the Bible. Cult practices include astrology, witchcraft, the black arts, fortune telling, magic (both black and white), Ouija boards, Tarot cards, spiritism, parapsychology, and Satanism. God doesn’t want us to have anything to do with the occult. The occult will only lead us away from God.
Sometimes, kids can become curious about ghosts, Ouija boards, or another part of the occult. While these things might not seem too scary, they are not honoring to God. A small interest in the occult can quickly turn into a full obsession. Once a person gets involved with the occult, it can be hard to get out, so it is best to stay away from it.
God tells us all occult practices are wrong (Leviticus 19:31). The occult is extremely dangerous and it rejects Jesus and reject the Bible. They will deny the beliefs of the Bible and say bad things against God. It is important that you never become involved with the occult. It will only lead to a broken fellowship with God and it will cause pain.
"Do not look for advice from people who get messages from those who have died. Do not go to people who talk to the spirits of the dead. If you do, they will make you 'unclean.' I am the Lord your God" (Leviticus 19:31).
"Suppose someone looks for advice from people who get messages from those who have died. Or they go to people who talk to the spirits of the dead. And they do what those people say. Then they have not been faithful to me. So I will turn against them. I will separate them from their people" (Leviticus 20:6).
"Finally, my brothers and sisters, always think about what is true. Think about what is noble, right and pure. Think about what is lovely and worthy of respect. If anything is excellent or worthy of praise, think about those kinds of things" (Philippians 4:8).
