1Sa 15:23  For rebellion is as the sin of witchcraft, and stubbornness is as iniquity and idolatry. Because thou hast rejected the word of the LORD, he hath also rejected thee from being king. 

Stubborn rebellion against authority is as witchcraft. King Saul's rebellion caused his anointing to be taken away. Rebellion has been tearing down our nation since the 60's. Actually, rebellion has been with us since Adam and Eve sinned in the Garden of Eden. Rebellion is not submitting to God's authority. Authority is what God has and it is given to others who are responsible to God. Rebellion has gotten so bad that many schools are unable to teach the students. They run wild and they resist correction. Every person has become their own authority and that is why they are called the "me generation."

When I think of rebellion and witchcraft, I think of the books about Harry Potter; they are often required reading in the schools. The Bible is not allowed, but witchcraft is taught. That goes right along with rebellion. Witchcraft, sorcery, (Pharmacea), the use of drugs as a spiritual experience. I see 30 and 40 year olds that have no teeth because of using "meth". The women are wrinkled and have faces like "Popeye". I get upset with all the division that is not Biblical; Gay rights? Women's rights? Entitlement?  The Bible says if you are able to work, you should work and not be given food for your stubborn laziness. If you don't work, you don't eat. Another characteristic of the rebellious is that they live in a delusion. They lie and are not convicted of it. There is no sin to the lawless. God sees it all. All will give account to him.

Php 2:10  That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth; 
Php 2:11  And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.
