in a book called the dark side of the occult, researchers found common traits among all those who were demon oppressed or possessed and that was the occult or drugs. they found the fastest route to become possessed was the ouija board or drugs.
dont kid yourself. harry potter is all about the occult. it may be entertaining but it glorifies it same as all these tv shows where folks attempt to make contact with the dead or have paranomal encounters.
maybe the bible is not your book but it is incredibly clear that we are to NEVER participate in any of these things and that supernatural entities (whether good or bad) are awe-inspiring created beings—not the harmless ones people like to think of. Apostle Paul himself said that he was never disrespectful when talking about them because of their power and office.
although the exorcism of emily rose was wrong in that demons cannot possess a christian, much else about it was spot on.
oh and i have read the books and watched the movies. but i bet you haven’t read the bible which is the book that says not to have any involvement.
Never read the books have you? Rowling manages to make magic look dull to learn and just plain awkward to do to accomplish what we muggles do easily with our ‘magic’ - technology.
Christians never get possessed? Source please?
Oh, and FWIW, I never allowed a Ouija board in my house.
By that same token, wouldnt a Christian (or any religious person) be more vulnerable to possession than an atheist?
A Christian participates in prayer. They believe in an afterlife and believe in a paranormal existance beyond our understanding. So doesnt that open themselves up to contact with a spiritual realm?
An atheist on the other hand pretty much closes themselves off to all of that.
It would seem that for some, they spend more time fearing demons than trusting and loving God. Its also a great money maker for some of those TV preachers.
Send me your money and I will set you free, yuk.....
