The occult is a very big field and are made up of a lot of things for example, fortune telling, calling up dead spirits, tarot card readings, what the stars predict and so more.
All these things are forbidden for us to get involved in, especially if we say we are children of God. We are not allowed to take part in these practices if God is our God. It is an abomination in the eyes of God. God is very clear in His word that we should stay away from these things because they come from evil doers.
I believe that when you give your hand to these practices you will easily become addicted to it. Our curious nature will drag us continuously in to this circle of evil. Once satan has established the power over you, you become a puppet in His hands. We have to study the word of God so that we will not fall into these traps of the occult.
AVOID ANY FORM OF OCCULT ACTIVITIES THEY ARE A CANCER TO THE CHRISTIAN SOUL!
