As an amateur card magician, I am wondering if doing illusions for fun is categorized as a sin? I know of many Christian magicians who do “magic” for pure entertainment. Almost showing their fast hand skills for slight of hand.

Thank you sir. I think you bring up an excellent point and perhaps, I would hope, they would mention that they are only “slight of the hand” things and that there is no actual magic and that their tricks are using physical means and not the forces of darkness.

What about cryokinesis and what about if you give God glory for it

Jack Wellman August 7, 2017 at 8:42 am

Hello Kane. It is impossible to glorify God and not do as He commands and He says to avoid these things. From my research, Pyrokinesis is the purported psychic ability allowing a person to create and control fire with the mind. There is no conclusive evidence that pyrokinesis is a real phenomenon. Alleged cases are hoaxes, the result of trickery” so this is as evil as it gets. You cannot justify pyrokinesis in any way at all.

What truly is the destestible magic? As in is the type of magic hoodeeny did where we all knew it was an illusion. Is that the type of magic God is condemning? Or is there another type of magic? If so what is the line between just illusion like hoodeeny performed and magic that the Egyptian magicians used?

Hello Josh and thank you for your question. Those things done by the Egyptians were likely a slight of the hand, or worse, they were empowered by Satan, but what is “destestible magic?” I have not heard of that. There is only one magic that I know of, but God works miracles…the Devil can use deception. What the line is between illusion and “hoodeeny,” I don’t know my friend. I do know that all those who practice such things will not be in the kingdom.
