But Elymas the sorcerer (for so is his name by interpretation) withstood them, seeking to turn away the deputy from the faith. Then Saul, (who also is called Paul,) filled with the Holy Ghost, set his eyes on him, And said, O full of all subtlety and all mischief, thou child of the devil, thou enemy of all Righteousness, wilt thou not cease to pervert the right ways of the Lord? Acts, Chapter 13, verses 8-10.
If God had this person in the Bible who used sorcery called a “child of the devil,” do you think He would approve of the fascination with the children’s book series that has sorcery as a primary focus? This series has become so popular that both adults and children are reading them, promoting them to others. It makes me sad Satan uses children’s books as a subtle way to lead people astray.
Because this is an example of how I’ve applied this Bible passage to my life, it doesn’t necessarily reflect the whole meaning of the passage.
