Wikipedia says practical kabbalah is permitted white magic within Judaism. I know of the Old Testament injunctions against various types of sorcery, divination, etc., so this is quite a surprise to me. Is there a Christian practice that corresponds to this one?
Esoteric Christianity historically taught "theurgy" or divine magic. Modern practitioners incorporate "Eastern" or "New Age" beliefs such as like reincarnation, inner energy, magic, astrology, etc. I would say it shares a lot in common with Kabbalah.
