...answer on 'curses' continued from...

...The Old Testament had instructions for the Israelite society then. Among all the other instructions God then gave, instructions as to witchcraft applied. The principles contained in the Mosaic Law were and still are basically fine principles for society to follow in their relationships with each other. Too bad some preachers don't stop engaging in modern witchcraft
    Deuteronomy 18:10-12 "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." 2Chronicles 33:6 "And he caused his children to pass through the fire in the valley of the son of Hinnom. Also he observed times and used enchantments and used witchcraft and dealt with a familiar-(one a person knows, such as the spirit of a dead person)-spirit and with wizards. He wrought much evil in the sight of the LORD, to provoke him to anger." 
    There were always many forms of witchcraft (2Kings 9:22; again, Deuteronomy 18:10-12, just above; Daniel 4:7; Isaiah 2:6) and people who would place a curse upon another or become psychics -Acts 16:16 "And it came to pass, as we went to prayer, a certain damsel possessed with a spirit of divination met us, which brought her masters much gain by soothsaying-(predictionists, a psychic)". Daniel 2:27,28 "Daniel answered in the presence of the king and said: The secret which the king hath demanded cannot the wise men, the astrologers, the magicians, the soothsayers, shew unto the king? But there is a God in heaven that revealeth secrets and maketh known to the king Nebuchadnezzar what shall be in the latter days. Thy dream and the visions of thy head upon thy bed, are these....." 
    What does God think about it all? 
    Some believe that God passes curses on to succeeding generations. Does He?
