Occult Symbols, Imagery, and Terminology

Occult Terms

A few terms related to the occult that we have used on this website.


I am just recommending that people take time to learn the terms and their meanings so that you are able to recognize the devils attempts to deceive you into believing these are acts of God. False prophets, many believed to be actual witches, are teaching these things with a twist of biblical Scripture to confuse people into believing this is part of Christianity. None of these things are part of true Christianity.

Alchemy

Alchemy is a precursor of modern science, which incorporated such disciplines as astrology, and mysticism in studying metals and how to transmute them into gold.

When a base, or common, metal such as lead was found, it was thought to simply be a spiritually and physically immature form of higher metals such as gold. To the alchemists, metals were not the unique substances that populate the Periodic Table, but instead the same thing in different stages of development or refinement on their way to spiritual perfection.

As James Randi notes in his "Encyclopedia of Claims, Frauds, and Hoaxes of the Occult and Supernatural,"

"Beginning about the year 100 and reaching its flower in medieval times, alchemy was an art based partly upon experimentation and partly upon magic. Early investigators of natural processes centered their search on a mythical substance they knew as philosopher's stone, which was supposed to possess many valuable attributes such as the power to heal, to prolong life, and to change base metals into precious metal — such as gold." (This "philosopher's stone" was not a literal stone but instead a wax, liquid, or powder that held magical powers.) Continue reading this article at www.livescience.com/39314-alchemy.html
