You are clearly mistaken from a purely historical point of view.  You
should read Marvin Meyer's Ancient Christian Magic.  Further, it is no
attack on the faith to tell the truth.  That for some people prayer is
"magical" is utterly indisputable.  Utterly.



And it was so for the Kabbalists, although "magic" has a bad connotation

They teach that the world was CREATED by G-d's "speech", and that 
words and other utterances have great power to effect changes in the 
spiritual worlds, and that G-d's various names have more power and 
that is why we cannot pronounce them except in prayer, and that the 
NAME OF NAMES has even MORE power - and -

THAT IS WHY NONE OF  YOU KNOW HOW TO PRONOUNCE IT!

No matter HOW LONG you play the game

Shabbat Shalom

Shoshanna
