MAGIC IS AN ABOMINATION
For behold, the Lord saw that his people began to work in darkness, yea, work secret murders and Abominations…Alma 37:22
Notice he said abominations! What does God consider an abomination among many things? WITCHCRAFT AND SORCERY
(Deuteronomy 18:9-14 When thou art come into the land which the Lord thy God giveth thee, thou shalt not learn to do after the abominations of those nations.
10 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, or an enchanter, or a witch,
11 Or a charmer, or a consulter with familiar spirits, or a wizard, or a necromancer.
12 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.
13 Thou shalt be perfect with the Lord thy God.
14 For these nations, which thou shalt possess, hearkened unto observers of times, and unto diviners: but as for thee, the Lord thy God hath not suffered thee so to do.)
He sees “his people” begin to work in darkness.
Who are his people??
Those who have made Covenants.
No wonder we are under condemnation as a church for taking the Book of Mormon lightly!
The Book of Mormon exposes all that we are now seeing! Instead of reading the book as commanded to expose the darkness and plans of the evil one, we are reading the actual works by witches themselves and partaking of the dark side for our amusements.
