Just thought I'd start a discussion on the bible and magic. I just wondered how you all feel about using the psalms from the Bible, if you use them at all that is. If you don't, it would be interesting to hear your views on it. Personally I have used the psalms for a long time now. I feel they hold a lot of power and work great for magic. I have had a lot of people frown at me when I mention the bible and witchcraft. I know its a common tool for the traditional witch but I have noticed a lot are still unfamiliar of the blending of this. One thing that I have thought about is, yes witches did use the bible, but all be it they were witches they were normally women and men of the bible. So how do you explain, say a pagan using the Bible? How do you feel about that? Is an interesting thought. Personally, I feel there is enough evidence to at least suggest things like the psalms pre-date Christianity. Theres also the cas that Christianity would of been blended into the practices of those who practiced the old ways, kind of as a disguise out of force, and we are then left with a different "flavour" of witchcraft that is left, I think this is the case with hoodoo. But a lot of the old pellars were women of God, and the holy trinity was employed with great faith.
I tried something new today...I used the Egyptian Book of the Dead for bibliomancy . I got some really creepy accurate answers. I know the Bible is a traditional book for bibliomancy , but what other books or myths would you use? As a side note, I want to try this with Irish texts as well. Maybe the Cattle Raid of Cooley?
