Would a binding spell work if the recipient believes what they’re doing shouldn’t be dangerous?

If the recipient of a binding spell believed their actions to be righteous or unharmful will the spell nonetheless work?

  1. It really depends on whether the spell is dependent on the person’s perspective over their own actions, haha. Don’t design your spell that way if you don’t want it to work that way!

  2. Binding someone to do no harm is obviously related to assessments of what constitutes harm, and there is unlikely to be an objective reality to fall back on. You’d be better to bind someone not to do specific actions.

  3. Not to be “that guy” but some binding spells are designed to bind that person to you (used by many in the past to keep an unfaithful spouse/SO from straying), not to bind them from doing certain things. So if you are creating the spell yourself with the intention to keep the target from causing harm or what have you, excellent and more power to you! However, if you are choosing a binding spell from somewhere else, like an encyclopedia of spells, be sure to read it carefully and understand the original spell-caster’s purpose. Just my two cents.

  4. Oh, I understand now. I agree with nation543, that your intent is what’s important here. Magic (in my opinion) requires energy, intent, and an unwavering belief that your magic will work. My own ethical standpoint is if the spell is for the greater good and does no harm, it’s ok.

  5. I’m assuming you mean ‘spell’ not ‘smell’. 🙂
    So, a spell is being done and the intended recipient thinks it’s not harmful? Or are you asking if the person casting the spell believes what they’re doing is not harmful?

  6. If they truly believe they are not being harmful then that’s a tough call. We all have different beliefs and definitions obviously. You can try a binding spell but remember that we really can’t mess too much with someone’s free will.

    Can you maybe elaborate a bit and give us some more info? What is this person doing that you consider harmful but they do not? Why do you feel that it needs binding?
    Thanks, that could help us get you some better answers.
