If you believe in magic does this make one evil in the eyes of a religious person?
When I was a child my Father, who was a fundamentalist, warned us about the occult. Anything from dark imagery around Halloween to episodes of Scooby Doo were considered dangerous and seen as contrary to God.
I can remember seeing some older kids on my street playing with Magic the Gathering cards and being warned to stay away from them as they might let very real demonic entities in. As a kid I had received some Pokemon cards as a gift from a friend only to have them confiscated by my Father for having a kind of Pokemon that were "PSYCHIC" and thus tied to the occult and the Devil.
There are verses in the Bible which compel people to stone witches and mediums who speak to the dead.
So to sum up yes, to some (usually fundamentalist) Christians the use of Magic is seen as evil or tied to the Devil. While today the religious cannot get away with torturing or executing those who practice these arts there are still those superstitious enough to see practitioners of Magic as evil.
Well after you had picked a Best Answer I come along. lol
All religion has rituals and if anyone else has a ritual that they don't approve of then it is evil.
Same rituals are:
Alters, Prayers, One God(s), Worship of things and spirits God etc. Sacred places and such. Changing liquids such as water to blood and using wine or grape juice...magic...
I strongly believe in magic and reason why I do is I am a devout Christian. I mean, like, how can I not believe in magic -- when I believe that such things as the Immaculate Conception and Holy Resurrection actually happened.
Magic is real, and it's a spiritual gift that can be developed like any gift. I have practiced it myself, and will continue to.
It's not wrong.
What people do with their gifts is what makes it sacred or evil, not the magic itself. You can use a hammer to drive nails, or to break things
All things emanate from God,
