I talked to a fine Christian Lady the other day. Another Christian Lady from her Church had recommended a Counselor to her. The sessions started innocently enough, but soon turned to advise on using pictures of Unicorns and Dragons as solutions to problems. To her credit, the person seeking help exited the relationship with this “professional”!
Their are many forms of idolatry, witchcraft, satanic influences, etc. in today’s modern world. We as Believers need to both read Scripture to hone our ability to discern them, and keep our relationship with Jesus healthy and very much alive that we may hear the H.S. When he warns us of these threats! Remember, the enemy comes as a liar and an enticing, tempting thief! I thought of these things as I read one of the verses in today’s devotional.
1 Corinthians 10:15–24 (Listen)
15 I speak as to sensible people; judge for yourselves what I say. 16 The cup of blessing that we bless, is it not a participation in the blood of Christ? The bread that we break, is it not a participation in the body of Christ? 17 Because there is one bread, we who are many are one body, for we all partake of the one bread. 18 Consider the people of Israel:<a class="fn" href="http://logoscreative.co/api/bcp-reading.php?passage=1%20Cor.%2010%3A15-24#f1-1" id="fb1-1" title="Greek Consider Israel according to the flesh“>1 are not those who eat the sacrifices participants in the altar? 19 What do I imply then? That food offered to idols is anything, or that an idol is anything? 20 No, I imply that what pagans sacrifice they offer to demons and not to God. I do not want you to be participants with demons. 21 You cannot drink the cup of the Lord and the cup of demons. You cannot partake of the table of the Lord and the table of demons. 22 Shall we provoke the Lord to jealousy? Are we stronger than he?
Do All to the Glory of God
23 “All things are lawful,” but not all things are helpful. “All things are lawful,” but not all things build up. 24 Let no one seek his own good, but the good of his neighbor
