So Felipe is asking. It says hypnotism is a way of letting our enemy to take control over our lives. I wouldn’t say that was a question, but I guess he’s making a statement.

Speaker 3

Yes, sorry, it’s a safe.

Speaker 1

I was just going to say I would totally agree, because only God should ever have control of us. And it’s very dangerous when a person has control over another person, that’s never been God’s will for us. We should never be having the control over somebody’s will. It’s only Thy will be done when Jesus said that to his father. And so if somebody is seeking to control another person, the person controlling that the other person is the devil. So it’s literally like the devil as the puppeteer controlling that person who’s also controlling another person. I would say it’s very demonic. And I would be really careful in staying away from that sort of thing. And I know that I’ve heard of and there’s so many weird spiritual things you hear of out there, but people who’ve been under hypnosis, they’re like, I have no idea what happened. And DA, DA, DA. Whereas the people who like, I heard a story of a man who was a wizard or he did things like that. And he’s like, yeah, I can do all sorts of things. And he was like, and I can mess with your life. And he was saying to this missionary, and this is like, no, you can’t.

Speaker 1

And he’s like, Let me ask you a question. He’s like, do you watch worldly television shows? Do you read worldly novels? Do you do these things that allow basically that allow the devil into your life? And he’s like, no, I don’t do any of those things. I don’t listen to secular music. I don’t do anything. And finally, the words is like, I can’t actually, I can’t touch you because you’re protected by God. But he’s like, well, you know how rare that is that people even in the Church are not fully protected and they’re opening themselves up to demonic things. And I totally agree that hypnotism is one of those avenues that you’re just basically giving your mind over to the control of somebody who’s not being led by the Holy Spirit.

Speaker 2

And it’s important to note along with that that watching television is a hypnotic effect. Watching movies has a hypnotic effect. So understanding that is very important and understanding what we choose to consume, even just scrolling our feeds on social media can also have a hypnotic effect.

Speaker 3

If you want really good analysis on the hypnotic effect of media, I highly recommend looking at Little Light Studios, and they have a YouTube channel, and they have a lot of really good content, really breaking down how Hollywood is really trying to program us and just even how just media of itself with the flickering lights and all that has a hypnotic effect on music can have that effect as well. Definitely great question point there.

Speaker 2

Felipe and calm as a good point here, too. That if God’s with us, no one can be against us. God’s protection is very strong.

Speaker 3

That sums up the matter perfectly.

Speaker 2

Yeah. Exactly.
