Police and medical staff document America's real-life possession: Official reports claim boy
Daily Mail ^ | 27 January 2014 | LYDIA WARREN

Posted on 01/27/2014 7:55:22 PM PST by moonshinner_09

A nine-year-old boy walked backwards up a wall and ceiling as startled medical staff looked on after his mother claimed he and his two siblings had been possessed by demons, according to official reports. The unlikely-sounding event was detailed in official documents after a child services case worker and a nurse both said they saw the boy 'glide' backwards on the floor, wall and ceiling. Both were shocked to see the boy apparently float after their mother had been subject to months of scepticism when she claimed her home in Gary, Indiana, was haunted and all three of her children were possessed by demons. Latoya Ammons said her 12-year-old daughter also levitated in the home, and all three of her children showed signs of being possessed including 'evil' smiles and unnaturally deep voices, according to the Indianapolis Star. Miss Ammons' home was officially exorcised by a catholic priest who said the ceremonies were officially authorized by the Diocese of Gary. Police also observed strange goings on at the house and a captain of the city's force has said he 'is a true believer' that the house is haunted. After a string of apparent paranormal events at the house hardened police officers - including the local captain - even declared themselves too frightened to stay there after nightfall and numerous city officials refused to go to the property.

Nothing unusual. A couple of Red Bulls and a Rock Star Cola will do that to you. Probably shouldn't be giving them to kids though.

If he had been in Colorado the cops couldn’t do a thing about it. Possession is legal there now.

We know this story isn’t true because the police didn’t shoot a dog nor the floating boy.

Yeah, but if she was in Utah, the cop would say, “We don’t have time for this” and shoot the woman and her demons.

Evil is as real and as potentially powerful as is goodness and purity. Not every single account of possession is actually that, but I believe some are.

Folks,

Evil exists whether or not you believe in it and it can affect your life whether or not you acknowledge it.

Reminds me of the village where they hung all the woman because they “believed” they were possessed/witches.

Imagination is a powerful thing...we see through our brains, not just our eyes. What is remarkable in this story is like all those on Aliens...the so called ghost picture is blurred...they’re never clear!

So I don’t buy this story one bit....mass hysteria..yes.

Interesting - 14 out of the 17 responses thus far are either flippant or skeptical, or both. Apparently the testimony of the witnesses counts for nothing.

If the police officer oversaw an exorcism, I don’t think it would have been a fraud. The people who are witnesses are apparently of sound mind.

I’m always skeptical when people say they spent months or years battling whatever in a haunted house . . . because after you’re become convinced that you’re in the same house as some sort of malevolent beings, why would you spend one more night in that place???? I’d move into a homeless shelter with my kids before I let them *continue* to be subjected to anything evil.

Mark 5:1-20 (New International Version)

Jesus Restores a Demon-Possessed Man

Chapter 5:
1 They went across the lake to the region of the Gerasenes.
2 When Jesus got out of the boat, a man with an impure spirit came from the tombs to meet him.
3 This man lived in the tombs, and no one could bind him anymore, not even with a chain.
4 For he had often been chained hand and foot, but he tore the chains apart and broke the irons on his feet. No one was strong enough to subdue him.
5 Night and day among the tombs and in the hills he would cry out and cut himself with stones.
6 When he saw Jesus from a distance, he ran and fell on his knees in front of him.
7 He shouted at the top of his voice, “What do you want with me, Jesus, Son of the Most High God? In God’s name don’t torture me!”
8 For Jesus had said to him, “Come out of this man, you impure spirit!”
9 Then Jesus asked him, “What is your name?”
“My name is Legion,” he replied, “for we are many.”
10 And he begged Jesus again and again not to send them out of the area.
11 A large herd of pigs was feeding on the nearby hillside.
12 The demons begged Jesus, “Send us among the pigs; allow us to go into them.”
13 He gave them permission, and the impure spirits came out and went into the pigs. The herd, about two thousand in number, rushed down the steep bank into the lake and were drowned.
14 Those tending the pigs ran off and reported this in the town and countryside, and the people went out to see what had happened.
15 When they came to Jesus, they saw the man who had been possessed by the legion of demons, sitting there, dressed and in his right mind; and they were afraid.
16 Those who had seen it told the people what had happened to the demon-possessed man—and told about the pigs as well.
17 Then the people began to plead with Jesus to leave their region.
18 As Jesus was getting into the boat, the man who had been demon-possessed begged to go with him.
19 Jesus did not let him, but said, “Go home to your own people and tell them how much the Lord has done for you, and how he has had mercy on you.”
20 So the man went away and began to tell in the Decapolis[b] how much Jesus had done for him. And all the people were amazed.

I’m well familiar with that scripture account. But it was Jesus Himself doing HIS work, and other amazing acts throughout His mission to give evidence that HE was who He stated He is. The New Testament wasn’t written at that time...we have His words and the Historical record of His life.

We walk by faith today.

You can laugh, but I have a video of a demon getting ejected from a woman in Piggs Peak, Swaziland during my 2010 mission trip. I have not seen any manifest like this, but I have seen a teenage girl nearly folded in half (the wrong direction), with things moving under their skin and a look in their eyes that shows up in nightmares sometimes.

There is a Satan, there are demons, and they will flee at the command of a believing Christian commanding them to go in Jesus name. I have seen that, too.

Lots of social worker and police witnesses. Very well documented in the local press, as well as in the priest’s report to the bishop, as linked in other threads posted yesterday.

If you reject the possibility in principle, no evidence will suffice. Others who accept the possibility in principle, seem to be excessively skeptical, probably because they’re not familiar with all of the documentation.

I accept the possibility that these things can happen; there is reason for skepticism in any particular case, simply because of so many cases of fraud and/or misinformation. So although I wouldn’t bet the ranch on any specific case of this type, I think some are real phenomena. But I think SOME people who discount these things out of hand are either arrogant or too frightened by the unknown to admit the possibility of such phenomena.
