It’s important for us to keep the world of magic in perspective. The desire for knowledge and power over our circumstances is understandable. But if we enlist the help of Satan or his demons through occult experimentation, we are setting ourselves up for selfdeception and danger.
The New Testament assures us that the power of Christ is far greater than any kind of power obtained through sorcery and magic (Acts 19:15-19). Furthermore, the occult leads to spiritual darkness, keeping us from knowing and trusting the One who died for us to bring us to God. He alone can relieve the torment of our guilt and replace our fear with a spirit “of power and of love and of a sound mind” (2 Tim. 1:7).
