[The Bible has given mankind many warnings on a variety of subjects. Here are a few of them:]
"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 these things are an abomination unto the Lord."
"Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion,
walketh about, seeking whom he may devour."
(1 Peter 5:8).
"Thou believest that there is one God; thou doest well: the devils also believe,
and tremble." (James 2:19).
"Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the
tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world,
and not after Christ." (Colossians 2:8).
"And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and
Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth,
and his angels were cast out with him." (Revelation 12:9).
"Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature
more than the Creator, who is blessed forever. Amen. For this cause,
God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the
natural use into that which is against nature: And likewise also the men,
leaving the natural use of the women, burned in their lust one toward another;
men with men working that which is unseemly." (Romans 1:25-27).
Jesus said, "Be not afraid of them that kill the body, and after that have
no more that they can do. But I will forewarn you whom ye shall fear:
Fear him, which after he hath killed hath power to cast into hell;
yea, I say unto you, Fear him." (Luke 12:4-5).
Jesus said, "Watch therefore: for ye know not what hour your Lord doth come.
Therefore be ye also ready: for in such an hour as ye think not the
Son of man cometh." (Matthew 24:42&44).
"For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine;
but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers,
having itching ears." (2 Timothy 4:3).
