I’m reading a wonderful book right now called Witchcraft in the Church by Rick Godwin. It’s truly an eye-opening book that exposes the subtle influence that witchcraft can have on our lives. The authors premise is that, while most of us think of spells and broomsticks when we think of witchcraft, it is far more prevalent in the church (and in our every day lives) than we might think. 1 Samuel 15:23 tells us that “rebellion is the sin of witchcraft, and stubbornness is iniquity and idolatry.” The author explains that “witchcraft” can be defined as manipulation and intimidation for the sake of domination. I found today’s quote especially powerful:
“Every time I insist on having my own way I expose myself to satanic, demonic influence. Every time. The door just swings wide open, and Satan’s hosts can come right in.”
