A long time

A long time

Acts 8:11
“They followed him because he had amazed them for a long time with his magic.”

People can be in error for a long time.
They can follow a false prophet for a long time.
They can be fooled for, yes, a long time.
So long as the wonders are before them they will follow blindly.
People want to be entertained.
They want to be mesmerised and amazed.
They follow what they see.
This can go on for a long time.
People can be locked in to a position for a long time.
They can struggle to be free because they don’t know how to question.
They are accepting of what looks unchallengeable.
It can last a long time.
They are under a spell.
Trapped, contained and held back for a long time.
But just because it’s a long time it doesn’t mean they’re unmovable!
