Some people claim the ability to “witch” (divine) water. This is the practice of using a forked stick or two wires to locate underground water sources. As they are divining, some diviners claim the ability to distinguish between an underground water line, gas line, and/or electric line.
I have never tried using a stick, but I have tried to locate water lines by loosely holding an “L” shaped wire in each hand while walking over the area where a line is supposed to be buried. Don’t ask me to explain the physics, but at certain points along my path, the wires will cross and then return to their straight-ahead positions.
The questions arise: Is this truly the water line that is 2 feet deep? Is it a stream of water that is 25 feet deep? Is it even water or some other form of magnetic material? (I have walked a path where a wire fence once ran for years and the wires remained crossed.)
As long as no one digs down to discover the truth, I can tell them it is anything I want, and they nor I will ever know the difference.
So it is with that which is preached from pulpits. As long as the message appears mysterious and almost superstitious, containing some truth, but leaving much of the truth buried inside the covers of the Bible, the “diviner” can proclaim anything he wishes, and the listeners will be no more the wiser.
It’s not until we, ourselves, dig down 2 feet, 25 feet, 200 feet into the Word of God that we can know for sure where to find the Water of Life.

“With my whole heart I seek you; let me not wander from your commandments! I have stored up your word in my heart, that I might not sin against you.” (Psalm 119:10-11)
