Do we read our horoscope, use an Ouija board or fill our minds with books, shows and movies filled with vampires, witchcraft and occult practices--whether serious or not? All these things build a wall between us and our loving Savior. He is grieved when we prefer to fill our minds, hearts and time with Satan's dark manipulations/illusions/deceptions to God's amazing, freeing grace & hope.
