Barga became addicted to smoking because his father and uncle were sending him to light the cigarette and give it to them, or bring them a match to light the cigarette. He became used to and then conquered the forbidden fear thereof. Next time rather than light the cigarette to give to them, he lit it and stuck it into his own mouth when they were not there. He later upgraded to weed and today he is a human chimney. He has tried all the Stop Smoking In 24 Hours to no avail.
Kathryn became addicted to crack cocaine because they were in a party and everyone was trying drugs. She decided to try it just to keep up with the occult power of the crowd. The end of it is that, the ring reader who even began the craziness is not addicted today but the curious cat is.
I began with the anecdote of Dr Faustus. There are many out there who venture into ventriloquism (act of speaking to the dead - a practice common in the US) for curiosity sake. Today they walk to the grave almost weekly to speak to their dead relative. Listen to me: the dead do not speak! You will end up practicing spiritism.
How many have entered into secret societies like Nyungu, AMORC, Free Masonry because they wanted to see what it was all about and never got back out? In 1992, Money-Eye met a friend who looked like money and spoke money. He told him that each time he needed money he went to a priest who prayed for him. After the prayers, when he opened his eyes, there was already money on the table. He will take it and go away. So Money-Eye told him to take him to the priest so he could witness it himself. When it happened, he wanted to try it too. The priest prayed and 200,000 CFA appeared on the table. They told him that they will tell him how to pay it back.
Two weeks later he began hearing voices asking him to come back and pay the money. His abderian trip has become a pygalgia. He shared the thing with his friend who told him that he could not just pay it like that. Invisible hands began pulling him unto the road. Time and again they pushed him towards the road with voices asking him to give his child. He gave the first son but it did not work. He gave the second then realized he had joined a secret society because he dabbled with the forbidden. After the death of his second son, he ran into a church where the chains were broken by deliverance.
Jimjim was a young man from Batibo who came to Quartier Yabassi when he was only 14. His family was Jesus Christ Oriented and heaven bound. Everyone knew if the roll was called up yonder he will be there. He was sent to study in a small village without a relative and caretaker. Towards the end of the year after the students had finished their exams, his friends invited him to the club. Not to appear a Sissy, he followed them and partook in the lebensfreude.
He has never smoked before but when cigarette stub that was passing by reached him, he could not let it go. When the cigarette was still afar, in the midst of the walla-walla, he struggled within himself . Finally, he promised himself that it would be his first but the last time too to ever smoke. He pulled once, and they asked him to inhale twice, then a third, then a fourth, and he coughed. They clapped and screeched saying "You are now a man as from today". Theretofore, it became a habit that led to addiction. He forgot the basic lesson that his parents taught him: “resist the devil and he will flee away from you”.
If you give Lucifer a position he will want to seize the kingdom, and if you let him visit the garden he will want to become the gardener.
Rachel had hired three ecdysiasts for the husband’s 32nd birthday. 6 months later, she discovered that the bulk of their savings was disappearing. She had sown wild oaks in him that will ultimately ruin their marriage. No one will sow seeds in a fertile soil and does not make a great harvest. Surely you have read that one can only reap what they sowed. She sowed wild oaks and reaped wild oaks.
Perhaps you are visiting Brazil where “whatever happens in Brazil stays in Brazil” and everyone starts to dawdle with some narcotics. It reaches your turn but you say let me just try it. Mistake; you may not be lucky to come out of that experience. What God tells you to avoid should be avoided. Don’t we say "It is curiosity that kills the cat"?
No one dabbles with the forbidden and leaves without a scar. That which is forbidden is forbidden. Men and women must be satisfied with what they see, know and have.
Until then, never experiment with the forbidden!
