  1. Acts 16:16-18 Once when we were going to the place of prayer, we were met by a female slave who had a spirit by which she predicted the future. She earned a great deal of money for her owners by fortune-telling. She followed Paul and the rest of us, shouting, “These men are servants of the Most High God, who are telling you the way to be saved.” She kept this up for many days. Finally Paul became so annoyed that he turned around and said to the spirit, “In the name of Jesus Christ I command you to come out of her!” At that moment the spirit left her. A few things stood out to me about the above passage: 1)The first is that the fortune teller, even though she was correct in claiming that Paul and the others were servants of God, had an evil/demonic spirit inside of her. Paul commanded that to come out of her to which the spirit left. It was an evil/demonic spirit inside the fortune teller since it had to be cast out. I’ve heard some professing Christians say it’s no big deal to go to a fortune teller, have tarot cards read, attend seances, etc. and look at is as a fun thing to do. I think it’s very clear here that we should not delve into that, and that it is attached to the evil/demonic spiritual world. 2) The second was in verse 18 where it said, “Finally Paul became so annoyed…” Basically annoyed means angry and irritated. Anger usually is a sin, and irritation is lacking patience, which also is a sin. I don’t think there’s any indication in here that Paul was wrong though for doing that, similar to when Jesus overturned the tables in the temple. Matthew 21:12 Jesus entered the temple courts and drove out all who were buying and selling there. He overturned the tables of the money changers and the benches of those selling doves. You have to be pretty angry to overturn tables, yet we know Jesus was without sin. Then in Ephesians 4:26 it says, “Be angry, and sin not: let not the sun go down upon your wrath.” So that also indicates that we can be angry just not let that anger cause us to sin, and deal with it quickly. So my understanding is, that there are some things (the ones that go against God, are so evil, etc.) that will cause us to be angry, but being angry is not the sin.
