First of all, what is alchemy? Alchemy is a spiritual and mystical precursor to modern chemistry. It sought to transform lead into gold. Not only that, but they tried to achieve immortality, and many other things. It's basically magic chemistry. It has many evil spiritual teachings. It is connected to Chakras, Kabbalah, Magick, Occult, Meditation, Christ Consciousness, and many other spiritual teachings. Alchemy is connected to many Hermetic teachings from a supposed Hermes Trismegistus, which means Hermes Thrice Great. He was most likely not a real person.

There are many Hermetic and Alchemical teachings about God that are false: God is all and in all, God is inside of us, the realization that you are God comes through higher consciousness and enlightenment, and others.

Alchemy is connected to Sorcery, Witchcraft, The Occult, The New Age, and Eastern Religious Teaching. All of these things are to be avoided. If you practice Alchemy and these other teachings, I urge you to repent of them. They are false. Alchemy is never once mentioned in the bible.
