Some people are to stupid to represent their religion.

The author is obviousy misinformed. I would say he is ignorant to the facts about magic tricks, but I wouldn't go so far as to be judgmental by saying he's "too" stupid to represent their religion based only on his personal opinions on magic.

Have you tried to reach out to him with some facts to hopefully educate him better about the difference between the art of magic, and witchcraft?
Keep your dreams alive. Understand to achieve anything requires faith and belief in yourself, vision, hard work, determination, and dedication. Remember all things are possible for those who believe.

Actually, guys...there ARE Churches out there who truly believe AND teach that what we do is evil...so on THAT count, he actually DOES represent his religion well.

On the other hand, he is wrong. It is obvious by what he wrote that he is SERIOUSLY misinformed as to what magic IS. I mean...c'mon...Dynamo accomplished his levitation with the help of SUPERNATURAL forces? REALLY!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?

But I agree...stupid might be a bit strong. Ignorant fits better, as it doesn't question his intelligence...only his information.

I hope some of you took the time to read the comments.

Many of our brothers and sisters in Christ that are magician's shared their thoughts.

Perhaps this stems from the time "a magician" tried to buy the gifts of the Apostles.

If it doesn't apply, let it fly. or as someone else wrote...wipe the dust off your computer keys....or was that feet and move on.

Precisely the reason I sometimes am ashamed to call myself Christian. It happened to me. West Peru (Maine) Baptist Church BANNED me from ever coming there again...why? The Zombie Ball.

Ignorance is alive and well...

To be fair, there are people who are into demonic magic. Dynamo's not a good example, but think of Simon the Magician from the book of Acts. He truly worked wonders. But those miracles weren't from God. They were from the demons, who would do these supernatural things for him.

Another example I can think of off the top of my head is that slave girl in Acts who was possessed by a demon. And she would prophesy about the future. And when the demon got cast out, her masters were furious that their source of making money lost this "gift". But of course this was all a deception of the demons.

It's true that most magicians are just doing illusions. But there are people out there who, whether they know it or not, have demons helping them do things.

I recommend that you read my book co-authored with Christian illusionist Andre' Kole for a different perspective. Yes...a shameless plug!

And how many of those are performing magicians, illusionists, and mentalists?
And how many of ~those~ are associating themselves with Christianity?
Can you name me at least three "demon-helped" "magicians" performing Gospel magic?
(We can name you many, many churches, pastors, deacons, elders, etc who wouldn't dare even read "Magic for Dummies", much less Terry's book!)
