Here's another example...

...if I say that I admire a culture that once used casting lots and divination with objects to answer questions, determine judgements, etc., you might say, stop right there! The Bible is against such things!

But then I tell you that this was actually the Israelites using the objects known as Urim and Thummim to do this righteous form of divination, casting lots, etc.

See what I mean -- just because some concept makes you think 'pagan' at first blush, doesn't mean that the concept is exclusively pagan. There is a non-pagan use of the same concept.
