Deuteronomy 18:9-12

"When thou art come into the land which the Lord thy God giveth thee, thou shalt not learn to do after the abominations of those nations.
There shall not be found among you any one that maketh his son or his daughter to pass through the fire, or that useth divination, or an observer of times, or an enchanter, or a witch,
Or a charmer, or a consulter with familiar spirits, or a wizard, or a necromancer.
For all that do these things are an abomination unto the Lord: and because of these abominations the Lord thy God doth drive them out from before thee."
Deuteronomy 18:9-12

Some good things to remember today.  Even though dressing up in costumes is fun, and it is enjoyable also to read fantasy novels or play games about idealized magic that can change the world for the better, let's not take ourselves too seriously.  God is the source of our personal power to change our lives, and he can help us influence the lives of others for good as well. :)  God can do amazing things, and I am sure that we have the ability to learn those things... but maybe we should pass a few more grade levels before we jump into graduate studies. :)  Looking to other sources for various kinds of power or the ability to speak with the dead or see the future is just distraction from the real source, who will always guide us in wisdom and never scare us needlessly. :)
