Any opinion on “Scarletgate?” As a guy that wrote a book on Sex Magic I thought you would have had more to say…
Yes. It should have been called Scarletghazi. The ‘gate’ suffix is so 20th century.
How is Financial Sorcery any different than Prosperity Gospel? You and other teachers of money magic are just Creflo Dollar with spellbooks instead of the Bible.
Well, I can’t speak for anyone else you might be thinking of, but my teachings are the polar opposite of the Prosperity Gospel. The prosperity Gospel teaches that God awards you money for faith. I have seen similar teachings stating that spirits do it or gods or whatever. Financial Sorcery says that you make money by the ordinary ways of making money: business, jobs, good products etc. and that Sorcery can help you do these things.
I teach nothing about spells producing money by themselves, and in fact Financial Sorcery is my worst selling book precisely because it demands people take money seriously as part of their lives. not just cast spells for cash or pin hopes on winning the lottery.
Financial Sorcery doesn’t even acknowledge an idea that there is any force, be it Karma or God, that determines what you should get. It is purely mechanics. if you want financial success then work for it and use magic as part of that strategy.
Here’s a Question for you: how dare you charge money for teaching magic? The sacred art is not to be turned out for quick cash.
I have been in magical orders where I paid dues and gave donations and learned a bit, but not as much as I had hoped. I have been involved with spiritual communities that work by donation only, but it always seems like those who donate more get special access and that there is often a hidden, or sometimes obvious, drive for more and more and more donations – again with no guarantee of learning anything at all.
I find straightforward business to be the most honest and best way of disseminating teachings. This is the list of topics and how I am doing it: this is the cost. There are no hidden costs. No further donations. No manipulation or pressure.
Whether its teaching magic or running a hardware store, in business money should be the second thing you are concerned over. The first is quality of product or in my case teaching. But money should immediately follow that. If it doesn’t the business collapses. This is true for Churches, Monestaries, and Magical Orders as well as businesses. To pretend that money doesn’t matter or factor into it, is what I find to be problematic.
