Quite simply, hypnotism is allowing someone else to open a window to your mind. Their ideas and thoughts, no matter how good they might seem, and even with your co-operation, can have devastating effects. 

Now, God reminds us that All things are lawful unto me, but all things are not expedient: all things are lawful for me, but I WILL NOT BE BROUGHT UNDER THE POWER OF ANY. (1 Corinthians 6:12)

God has other plans for your mind, For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind. (2Timothy 1:7)

Our minds belong to God and he wants us to read his words in the King James Bible and meditate on them. Your mind is not your own. And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God. (Romans 12:2)

There are more than enough articles on internet about the dangers of hypnotism. People who would, for fun or otherwise, indulge in this practice, are going into Satan’s territory and expecting not to get hurt. Furthermore, the same people who would undergo hypnosis, would no more think about juggling very sharp knives while blindfolded.

Why would you want anybody else poking around in your head. The end results can simply be catastrophic – insanity, depression, Alzheimers, multiple personalities and suicidal tendencies – you name it. Satan wants to mess with your mind.

Let me ask you a question. Have you ever come home on a cold night and found the house is freezing because you’ve left a window open? Hypnotism is the same as windows to your mind will be left open to any devil that wishes to visit.   

Don’t do it! If you have had it, go to the Lord,
repent and ask forgiveness and he’ll
close that window for you.
