I am a general curious mind and I want to understand what sort of niche that Christianity or just the “White Magicians” take in the world. I would love to hear your opinions on the questions I have:
- If a Christian’s conviction in their faith as a white Magician is true and they follow all their religious virtues to the point that it is second nature, does that white mage have the potential of power in them?
- By extension, can a Christian with enough conviction:
(a) Inadvertently invoke negative energies based on their opinion of something?
(b) Send that malevolent energy to whomever they feel indignation for? (whether they know it or not)
- Is it possible that the ‘demons’ that these Christians are afraid of are just self-fulfilling prophecies?
- I notice that the monotheistic Gods seem to talk about the suppression of free will a lot, or a specific lifestyle to live that I can perceive as being “efficient” for a religion (ie: No homosexuals, don’t eat specific foods, don’t question the religion, etc). Does the belief in their sort of suppression or guided life give them power, in the same way, that a Black Magician may attain their power through expression?
