“Did you know the silent treatment (which is the stubborn refusal to talk to someone, especially after a recent argument or disagreement) is a form of witchcraft? Witchcraft is sometimes a spiritual force, but it’s also a work of the flesh listed in Galatians. Intimidation is a form of fleshly witchcraft. Purposely ignoring people to ‘teach them a lesson’ can be a form of fleshly witchcraft. Manipulation tactics, like pouting and crying to get people to do what you want or make them feel guilty, are forms of fleshly witchcraft. I can tell you this, folks won’t get far with Spirit-led Christians playing those sorts of flesh-driven games. We’ll pray for you but we won’t bow to manipulation. 1 Samuel 15:2. Rebellion to God’s Word is as the sin of witchcraft. Trying to punish people with manipulation is rebellion. Can somebody say amen?” – Jennifer LeClaire, writing for Matt Barber’s website.
