'Dabbling with the occult', is what some Christians do when messing around with the unpleasant 'exorcism' hocus pocus, 'speaking in tongues' gobbledegook, or pretending to be 'healers'! Christians who are into that nonsense don't see that what they do is no different to what they accuse Satanists and people who practise witchcraft of doing. They think it is ok as they are doing it in the name of their version of god, which is the only 'true' one, even though they can't substantiate it actually exists.

If Christians are involved in the occult then their claim to be Christian is questionable.

driving out unclean spirits, casting out demons, speaking in tongues, healing are all scriptural and should be practiced...

It is all complete nonsense, the same as other so called 'occult' practises, and can be very harmful, especially exorcism, which should be totally illegal when used one children and the vulnerable. Children have died due to that nonsense being performed on them.

And, you consider that sane, adult behavior?

Of course it isn't, but that doesn't stop some extreme Christians get involved with it.

There are professionals and institutions for those with mental disorders to get the help they need.

And, if you believe that is sane, adult behavior, please do seek their help.

Insanity was at one time considered to be demonic possession, but we now live in the 21st century when everyone should know better than to believe such nonsense!

LOL. You actually believe people need exorcisms? That's even funnier than your wheelchair healing fantasies.

If it is determined that people are actually possessed by demons.Jesus used different methods to heal, indicating that they weren't all demon possessed.
Speaking in tongues requires an interpreter and the message is supposed to be edifying. I've been in churches where there was much speaking in toungues without any interpretation. Genuine speaking in tougues is considered in scripture to be the least of the gifts of the spirit.

Amen on most of that, tongues can be left uninterpreted but then they do not edify the whole church...

it is the only spiritual gift that the bible limits in any way that is true...

None of that nonsense is the occult. Occult means "hidden" as in hidden knowledge.

The greatest hidden knowledge has no need to hide, because nobody would believe it even if it was told to them. Look at me. They say I'm insane. That's cool. I'm a cool guy. I can fly like superman way out there in the hidden skies. Because I'm a high-class guy, living within a high-class crowed. We got a sign on the door that says no wolves allowed. Unless of course, the big bad wolf...he learns the rule: you gotta get HOT, if you wanna be cool. I'm so cool. I'm chilly chill, chill. I live in Florida, and my phantasmal life is full of thrills.
