God uses magic to cause damage to the adversary. In fact, he seemed to be quite fond of smiting people in the old testament. As far as wicca having a
light side, of course it does, that's ninety percent of the religion. They use terms such as "Harm None" to express their views in relation to
it looks that you are blaming God about some type of disasters or cathastrophic events occured in the past. To be sincere I found this statement so
dared, realy bold, and of course I am not agreed with it.
Let me tell you that along all the cases in the Bible that you can find in which some nation or people suffer something that could be judged as
Punishment of God, the common denominator is that always it is preceded by a terrible epoch of so sinful behaviour.
So it is not God itself the one that causes those problems but the proper people that suffer the consequences of their owns sins in their own flesh or
That is the meaning of the law, it is clearly stablished in the New Testament too, there are many parts of the scriptures in which it is written that
the payment of the sin is death, so this does not have anything to do with the will of God, even you can find that declaration at the end of Chapter
18 of the book of Ezechiel, God does not want that anybody die, just that they repent of their bad behaviour on time.
The weight of the Law is the one that punish, and that is the consequence of the transgression that humans do against it. To give you just one
example let me mention the Law of Gravity, you can use it in a very intelligent way, for instance in an elevator using counterweights that help to
rise it, but also you can use the elevator to go to the top of a tower and decide by yourself to commit suicide by jumping from there, in that case
can we blame God for your imminent death? Of course Not!!, you are just recevining the consequence of the transgression of a very elemental law that
is the Gravity.
Any law is Universal by definition, so it is accomplished in any place and over any person, it does not distinguish social condition, educational
level, genre, nationality, etc. For this reason is that it is so important to know very well the Law of God, its commandments and follow them.
Thanks any way for your participation in the thread,
