The Philippines has a variation of voodoo like magic. The most popular is ´Kulam´. In English it literally means withcraft but the rites performed are some what similar to that of voodoo. Kulam also invokes and the intent of the practitioner is indifferent since it is still a form of magic and draws powers from spirits. This is highly condoned by The Bible, hence it is Evil. Another is ´Mambabarang´ which bears a similarity with witchcraft. However they also have a diffirence which we can elaborate after further study. This is mainly used for cursing and revenge. Most of the time, theses forms of voodoo involve sacrificing animals to dieties or spirits, or shedding ones blood to form a pact or chanting weird and chants and prayers to the spirits.
