Why Using Chrystals Is An Abomination

Crystals of different types are mentioned in the Bible a few times. The Bible says rubies (Proverbs 8:11), sapphires (Lamentations 4:7), and topaz (Job 28:19), for example. The breastplate worn by the Levitical high priest contained twelve stones, each engraved with the name of a tribe of Israel: “The first row was carnelian, chrysolite, and beryl; the second row was turquoise, lapis lazuli and emerald; the third row was jacinth, agate, and amethyst; the fourth row was topaz, onyx, and jasper. They were mounted in gold filigree settings” (Exodus 39:10–13). The river flowing from the heavenly throne is “as clear as crystal” (Revelation 22:1), the area before the throne is something like “a sea of glass, clear as crystal” (Revelation 4:6), and “spread out above the heads of the living creatures was what looked something like a vault, sparkling like crystal, and awesome” (Ezekiel 1:22). The Bible never assigns any mystical properties to crystals.





Why using Chrystals is an Abomination


Chrystal is used for divination, to communicate with your higher self, receive messages, for energies, and fortune-telling. Besides being beautiful mineral structures, crystals are used in crystal healing, a pseudoscience that purports to heal various ailments. According to crystal healers, carefully placing crystals on a patient’s body should line up with or stimulate the body’s chakras and promote healing. This is witchcraft.


Some people also believe that crystals have an inherent power that can be harnessed and used to their benefit. Some use crystals to ward off evil spirits or bad energy and thus bring good luck. Crystals are sometimes used in feng shui, in the belief that they emanate good vibrations. Crystals that absorb too much bad energy in the process of protecting a home must be “cleansed” to reset the vibrations.


None of these superstitious beliefs about crystals come from the Bible. The Bible does not say that crystals are beneficial for attracting wealth, rekindling romance, or warding off evil spirits; neither does it say that crystals are needed to connect to God’s Spirit. On the contrary, the Bible warns strongly against engaging in anything related to superstition and the occult. God declares the practice of the occult detestable (Deuteronomy 18:10–12), and witchcraft is named along with idolatry as ungodly behavior (Galatians 5:19–21). The use of crystals as charms, amulets, or talismans is a type of occult practice, however benign it seems. Anything that seeks to manipulate the spirit world can be categorized as witchcraft.


Idolatry

It is idolatry because it depends on spiritual forces other than God for healing and protection; in other words, it is the worship of something other than God. Idolatry is repeatedly and strongly forbidden in the Bible (Deuteronomy 4:15–20; Jeremiah 44:1–4; 1 Corinthians 10:14–20; 2 Corinthians 6:16–17).


The superstitious use of crystals is yet another example of fallen mankind taking what The Most High has created and twisting it for an ungodly purpose. Crystals are striking examples of God’s handiwork. There is nothing wrong with using crystals for home décor or wearing them as jewelry, but there is nothing magical about them. Using crystals for protection or healing is, at its root, an idolatrous practice. The enemy perverts the Most High's creation for wickedness and not righteousness. The Bible explains that He and his minions are lawless and rebellious.


2 Thessalonians 2:9

The coming of the lawless one is by the activity of Satan with all power and false signs and wonders,


Hosea 14:9

Whoever is wise, let him understand these things; whoever is discerning, let him know them. For the ways of the LORD are right, and the righteous walk in them but the rebellious stumble in them.


Matthew 13:38

The field is the world, and the good seed represents the sons of the kingdom. The weeds are the sons of the evil one,


John 8:44

You belong to your father, the devil, and you want to carry out his desires. He was a murderer from the beginning, refusing to uphold the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks his native language, because he is a liar and the father of lies.

 

Deuteronomy 18:9-14


9 When thou art come into the land which the Lord thy God giveth thee, thou shalt not learn to do after the abominations of those nations.

10 There shall not be found among you anyone 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.

11 Or a charmer, or a consulter with familiar spirits, or a wizard, or a necromancer.

12 For all that do these things are an abomination unto the Lord: and because of these abominations, the Lord thy God doth drive them out from before thee.

13 Thou shalt be perfect with the Lord thy God.

14 For these nations, which thou shalt possess, hearkened unto observers of times, and unto diviners: but as for thee, the Lord thy God hath not suffered thee so to do.
