SHOULD WE ACCEPT AS GODLY THAT WHICH IS NOT BIBLICAL?

Information on a MAINSTREAM Kabbalistic Chasidic says:
"Sha’ar HaKavanot (Gate of Intentions),
 basically deals with celestial mechanics: it describes in detail how the spiritual power and energy invested in G-d’s holy Names enables spirituality to manifest into this world."

Not only do we not see anything even slightly resembling "celestial mechanics" anywhere in scripture (not to mention the term itself reeks of astrology which is condemned in the bible Lev 19:26), but the latter part of the statement is even more troubling.
The idea is not to set out to condemn every anti-biblical statement that I come across, but to impress upon the Christian the implications of all of the anti-biblical, mystical influences of Judaism.

Deuteronomy 18:9-14  When thou art come into the land which the LORD thy God give to you, thou shalt not learn to do after the abominations of those nations.  10 There shall not be found among you any one that makes his son or his daughter to pass through the fire, or that uses divination, or an observer of times, or an enchanter, or a witch,  11 Or a charmer, or a consulter with familiar spirits, or a wizard, or a necromancer.  12  For all that do these things are an abomination unto the LORD: and because of these abominations the LORD thy God doth drive them out from before thee.  13 You shall be perfect with the LORD thy God.  14 For these nations, which you shall possess, hearkened unto observers of times, and unto diviners: but as for you, the LORD thy God hath not suffered you so to do.
