Superstitious Mumbo-Jumbo?
Ten commandments, Law, Sermon on the Mount
Bible reference(s): Exodus 20:4-7

In the remote highlands of Papua New Guinea, there is a saying that no one dies a natural death. A fairly recent media report noted that: ‘The belief in sanguma, a catch-all local word that describes a method of causing harm to someone without laying hands on the person, has been around for centuries as a customary belief in this Pacific island nation...But in many areas of the country, accusations of using black magic are intensifying’.
