I used to love Mash. (Army TV show) Just LOVED it.
However, my wife pointed out several pretty low-class truths about the shows. I laughed. I scoffed. I still kept watching it. BUT, I now began to see the things she was talking about. I eventually admitted the truth about the disturbing attractiveness of those things in the show, told myself that it was time to let it go.
the origin of birthdays does have some magic in it. the wish is what im talking about. lol and I originally spelled magic, majik. which is the Arabic way of spelling that phoenetically and its a name of a market place here. owned by arabs at one time.
I hated that show, Reba. But MASH was one I could not resist. I saw right thru the filth and the crap about the only Christian (other than the Preist) being in an affair, but I let that go for the comedy.
I think most of us were captivated by I Dream of Jeannie, Bewitched, I remember watching the Mickey Mouse Club with Mickey portraying a sorcerer, I believe all of that was to desensitize us to what was to come and what is out there today, probably most people laugh or shrug these things of, after all it's the 21st century, ...but they are real, three times I have had witches come to cast a spell on me, of course He who is in me is greater than he who is in them, but they can cast spells on non-believers, I once worked for a man who had a mana (power) stone in his flower bed, people were all the time coming to worship it and receive power, also a very popular tourist attraction here is to walk across glowing red coals with a warlock, ...Paul tells us at the end there will be signs and lying wonders by the power of Satan to deceive many, to seduce and deceive those that have not received a love for the Truth, I believe that is what we are seeing and experiencing.
