Is magic against Christianity?
Simple tricks or allusions for entertainment purposes are not necessarily against 'Christianity.' However, far too often, we humans get enticed by the 'power' of magic and end up going astry - this is against God's Law. It has been said that both magic and idolatry came into this world together like twins born together. Evidence points to the time of the 1st great apostacy post the Flood. Justin the historian said that 'Zoroaster' was the first to invent the magic arts. However, Epiphanius came to the conclusion that this Zoroaster was a Chaldean and not Bactrian as Justin postulated. There is evidence that this 1st Zoroaster was none other than Nimrod (Ninus) the great grandson of Noah - son of Cush - son of Ham. Nimrod was the 1st King of the Assyrians.
