Why are people fascinated by witchcraft?

First, there is the thrill of the unknown. It all seems so mysterious that people are lured on and on till they get in trouble.

Second, it claims to offer great personal power—power which, in reality, it is never able to deliver.

Third, upon dabbling with it, people sense that more than human power is present.

After they are involved deeply enough, the curious discover the whole thing has become a pool of quicksand, from which it may be impossible to escape. They are being captured by a mysterious force—a supernatural mind which cannot be seen.

The end result may be demon harassment or possession, in one form or another. It may take the form of unshakable depression or it can lead to criminal actions, insanity, or suicide.
