A curse can be good or bad.
It seems to me that the Bible is a curse, good and bad. Anyone who comes in contact with it and reads it evidentally gets involved with it.
I learned how to do magic after reading the Bible. Which I think it is pretty interesting since many who read it say that magic is bad.
Some would say that magic comes from external sources and that doing so can bring bad consequences. Other say magic can be explained.
I do believe it can be explained when it comes to pulling bunnies out of hats, but what real magic is (to me) is using words to manipulate a desired effect.
If you chose the right words you can achieve the desired effect, if you chose them unwisely you could ultimately end up making that person you wanted to heal want to commit suicide.
I do believe in magic and I also believe it can be explained. It is through reading the bible that I grasp the concept of manipulation and or deception, some could call me a witch or I practice witchcraft, and I do but I am careful when I am uncertain of the effect, I don't do it.
So the bible is much like magic. You can use it's word and achieve an ill effect if you are not careful, or you can use it's words and achieve a loving effect.
This is very true . I think the insight you have shared here would make an interesting hub.
Magic since the beginning has been known to be white and black.Simply its the powers you have,are you using them for good or bad.Good use become white magic and bad use becomes black magic.If the Holy Bible has helped you evolve which looks like it has,then it hasnt been a curse for you but a blessing.We are in a magical world.Recently in the Newspapers and archeologist claims to have found the first writing where Jesus has been mentioned where it says "Jesus the magician."
In India its called Siddhis or powers which come to you via meditation like telepathy,claireaudience and clairvoyance.
As you walk the spiritual path you will become more magical.
Sandra, would you please provide some Scripture to back up your position on this issue?
I think I would prefer treating it as magic, rather than a curse. After all, the primary consideration why it was compiled was to make good persons out of us, to lead us to a meaningful life. What undermines its purpose is the interpretation of the Church that use it.
Interesting idea. I would just say the bible is a really nasty story book.
I am a practicing pagan, and the proper term is Magick. Magic is for the stage.

If you cant prove that the Bible is false, how can you call it lies. That is irrational, for to call someone a liar you must have proof to the contrary to what they are saying. Anything else is personal opinion and mere speculation.

Is it more important to study the Bible or to live a Christlike life?I am asking this because I see a huge amount of debate about doctrine, evolution, stem cells, premarital sex and so on, out there in US society, yet I feel convinced that, if Jesus lived today, he would not be engaging in these...

It is quite obvious that Catholics do not follow many things in the Bible. They look at the Church as the one that sets all standards. Why is it so?
