A wizard is a person that possesses occult powers. The term is derived from the Middle English word for "wise". Wizards are condemned by the Bible:

"And the soul that turneth after such as have familiar spirits, and after wizards, to go a whoring after them, I will even set my face against that soul, and will cut him off from among his people."[1]
