19 The acts of the flesh are obvious: sexual immorality, impurity and debauchery; 20 idolatry and witchcraft; hatred, discord, jealousy, fits of rage, selfish ambition, factions 21 and envy; drunkenness, orgies, and the like. I warn you, as I did before, that those who live like this will not inherit the kingdom of God………………………..Galatians 5:19-21 NIV
Did you know that alcohol and drug abuse is a form of witchcraft (sorcery)?
You are probably thinking – how can alcohol and drugs be witchcraft?
Because alcohol and other drugs of abuse are ‘spirits’ that affect your mind and behavior.
Witchcraft (sorcery) is Pharmakia in the Greek language where we get our word pharmacy. Witchcraft/sorcery puts people under an influence and takes the mind and body into an altered state instigated by a foreign substance.
Alcohol and drugs can open one up to the evil spiritual realm as the spirits play with the mind.
So the next time you decide to drink alcohol or use drugs recreationally – REMEMBER – You are practicing ‘witchcraft/sorcery’ – And those who live like this will not inherit the kingdom of God…
