Illusion Warped: Part 2

Now for the rest of the story.

OK, so Bret set the stage for my question so here it goes.

Aside from the debate on how much we should discuss about witchcraft. I think we all agree that a Christian should have no part of witchcraft. As it says in Revelations.

Revelation 21:8 (King James Version)

8But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.

The question is why don't most Christians mind that witchcraft and magic are part of the books, movies, etc. that they enjoy? For example two popular series that Christians tend to approve of LOTR, and Narnia both have magic and wizards as a main part of the story. I can't call myself a wizard and be a Christian, but as I Christian, I can read fictional stories about wizards? Can I justify it because it is a "good wizard"? Just typing" good wizard" seems like a oxymoron.

So my question is now out there, and I look forward to reading the opinions. This is a question that I haven't figured out for myself yet, but a nagging question that been in my head.

Also, unlike my esteemed partner in crime. I'm not out to offend anyone here. So if it happens I guess I'm sorry.

Illusion warped: Part 1

I believe that most or all of the people still reading this blog (thanks) believe is witchcraft and the like. If not please come talk to me, I have some people I'd like you to meet.

The question,
Do you believe that that magic* when practiced a certain "right" way i.e. saying abracadabra three times real fast, while jumping on a dead pig, listening to rock music, waving a wand at your newspaper astrology page" will ALWAYS produce the desired affect? Or, is it a hit and miss operation?

This is a much more important question then it appears to be, answer carefully.

*Meaning "n. 1.The art that purports to control or forecast natural events, effects, or forces by invoking the supernatural."

Oh, and this was written to be offensive to as many groups of people as possible, so this includes your group, sorry, but you don't have to read.
