Forced servitude in many nations ended in the late 1800's. Yet still there are slaves today in bondage to the spirits of their families' own employ. From the pits of deepest darkest jungles and the countries of poverty stricken natives, men and women practice magic and ancient sinister arts to beset those whom Jesus Christ died for, with demons of vices, sickness and death in a cesspool of jealously, envy and scorn.
Beginning in third world countries attesting of human poverty, from which we have arisen to hope in a "newness of life", many still summon spirits of evil in our midst to overwhelm those they want to control with despair. The self-concerned act as if the ancient art is allowable in a region where people embrace righteousness and the name of Jesus Christ. How we as humans deceive our own selves!

Act 16:18 &19
Scripturally speaking, the Apostle rebuked the use of any other power, other than the power through the name of Jesus Christ. Nevertheless many still hope to receive, through magic and other forms of the supernatural. It is this which brings down the torment of demon spirits upon themselves, their children and the people of whom they are casting or burning for, or against. The demonical troubles that many have are of their own doing, and the work they have performed against others. When spirits of magic and the like, who are greater than humanity, are conjured, one cannot be sure what these living coherent, yet evil beings will actually do. They have minds of their own with desire to fulfill their own evil objective. From these actions we see the inheritance of a community of vice, immorality, amorality, envy,
