What does it mean to interpret omens, according to the bible. Say you find yourself addicted to movies one day. You're watching a blockbuster movie and suddenly, your DVD player stops working on you. If you stop to think about it, you'd come to the conclusion that some higher being is trying to hint at something related to the DVD player that is broken in yourself. In this case, wouldn't it be "interpreting the DVD player omen"? So then, why does the Bible says to refrain from interpreting omens?
