Scripture Readings:

  1. Exodus 22:18 (KJV) "Thou shalt not suffer a witch to live."

  2. Deuteronomy 18:10-12 (NIV) "Let no one be found among you who sacrifices their son or daughter in the fire, who practices divination or sorcery, interprets omens, engages in witchcraft, or casts spells, or who is a medium or spiritist or who consults the dead. Anyone who does these things is detestable to the Lord; because of these same detestable practices the Lord your God will drive out those nations before you."

  3. Galatians 5:19-21 (NIV) "The acts of the flesh are obvious: sexual immorality, impurity and debauchery; idolatry and witchcraft; hatred, discord, jealousy, fits of rage, selfish ambition, dissensions, factions 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: Reflect on the inclusion of witchcraft in the list of sinful behaviors that prevent inheriting the kingdom of God.

  1. Discussion:

  • What dangers do we face today that are similar to the deceptive practices of witchcraft?

  1. Application:

  • Discuss practical ways to avoid such temptations and to rely on God's guidance and power.

  1. Conclusion and Prayer:
