The key element in occultism is imagination. This amazing capability which God has given men can be used for good or evil. Unhappily, the heart of man being the slave of evil because of his rebellion against God, his imagination most often carries him in the direction dictated by his selfish ambitions. God’s pronouncement is unequivocal:
“And God say that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually” (Genesis:6:5).
“…for the imagination of man’s heart is evil from his youth…” (Genesis:8:21).
“This evil people, which refuse to hear my words, which walk in the imagination of their heart…” (Jeremiah:13:10).
