What are you a slave to? A slave: Greek = doulos, pronounced doo-los. A person devoted to another to the disregard of one's own interests. Or, it may be said; If you allow something bad to control your actions, you do lose. The Hebrew word is abad. Well? Todayâ€™s saying is; â€œMy Bad!â€ The following was copied from "The Word for you Today". Here are three ways you can open yourself up to the power of evil: (1) By choice. The author of The Satanic Bible, Anton LaVey, said, â€œA successful witch or wizard must first surrender totally to Satan.â€, Youâ€™re probably wondering what kind of person would say or do such a thing. But the fact is, God gives each of us a free will capable of surrendering to Christ or to Satan. Paul writes, â€œDo you not know that to whom you present yourselves slaves to obey, you are that oneâ€™s slaves. . . so. . . present your [bodies] as slaves of righteousnessâ€ (Ro 6:16,19 NKJV). (2) By unrestrained indulgence. When any natural desire is indulged to excess, it can become an addiction and a force of destruction. Now, let's be clear here: addiction doesn't mean someone is demon possessed. Many Christians battle stubborn habits, and Christ has promised to set them free (See Jn 8:32). When you were saved Christ moved in and Satan moved out, because Christ wonâ€™t live in a duplex with the Devil. (3) By dabbling in the occult. God told Israel that those who put their trust in mediums were to be cut off from the community (See Lev 20:6). Ever wonder why spiritual mediums canâ€™t pick the right lottery number, win a fortune, and feed the starving masses? Because theyâ€™re fake, thatâ€™s why! Speaking of Satan, Jesus said, â€œThere is no truth in him. . . he is a liar and the father of [lies]â€ (Jn 8:44 NKJV). Donâ€™t mess with the powers of darkness. The only true guidance that comes from a star, comes from Jesus, â€œthe Bright and Morning Starâ€. (Rev 22:16 NKJV).
