The Hostile Spiritual Takeover of Our Nation
Rev. Thomas J. Euteneuer, President, Human Life International
Anyone who has watched national politics closely in the past year and a half has seen a panoply of aggressive political moves that are reported about in hostile terms. There are government "takeovers" of huge industries, public officials "moving against" businesses and individuals, court decisions "striking down" statutes and executive initiatives "attacking" fundamentally sane institutions and plans. Even in times of war, I don't think we have ever had such violent social and political maneuvering in our public life. The worst aspect of it is that all the rapaciousness is directed inward. If we were laying waste the enemies of the innocent citizens of our society in the same way we are consuming our own healthy institutions, how different our public life would be! The current hostile initiatives are nothing of the sort, however. They are essentially demonic takeovers of sacred institutions by the pagans who hold the reins of power.
Let me be clear: I am not saying that our public officials are demons. I am saying that they are acting like demons. Demons lie, cheat and steal - obsessively. It is their nature. Once the demons rejected God, they fell into a dark world devoid of love and dominated by the ethic of the survival of the fittest where "might is right". The human beings that serve them act in much the same way when they implement their agendas and policies. Whenever they are in control of institutions or governments, they lie, cheat and steal. In their minds, they are right because they have the might - and to the victors go the spoils.
But what did we expect, really? Our nation elected unabashedly pagan representatives who are possessed of a tapestry of unclean ideologies who have an almost religious fervor in advancing their control over greater sectors of our common life and economy. The sad part is that these people who govern us are simply being true to their convictions: before the election, they were not abashed in telling us how radical they are, and now we are reaping the fruits of the demonic agenda of the death and destruction that they have brought with them.
I would despair of this situation had I not met so many decent and God-fearing Americans who do not agree with the mainstreaming of paganism into our culture. I have met the virtuous side of America, and it is to these that I write these words of encouragement: be strong! We must be true to the core Christian principles that made this nation great! Be not afraid of the severe conflicts with the pagan world that we will have to endure in the very near future. We are not alone in this battle. There are many more moral and decent Americans than we realize. It's just that the good ones are busy about raising families and keeping the basic fabric of our society intact. They are not the hedonists and manipulators that strive obsessively to control public discourse and institutions. They are there in the background and form the true foundation of our society.
In time, the proper spiritual leadership will emerge which will bind us together and form us into a fighting force called the Church Militant - the only spiritual force that can truly resist the hostile spiritual takeover of our nation. Let us not forget, however, that we must get down on our knees and beg, plead, and implore God to restore our once-great nation to its grandeur. We will not see the dawn of a renewed nation without prayer and sacrifice. The momentum of righteousness, consisting of all the humble goodness taking place at the grass-roots level of the Church and society, will eventually build, and we will take back our nation - not only at the ballot box but above all in the hearts and minds of all those who love God and are doing their best to love their neighbor. We will then be able to cast out the unclean spirits that are destroying everything that we hold sacred, and society will once again be governed by righteous men. For such an end we place our deepest hope in Christ, our true and only Savior!
I was referring to the entry by demons into a soul that is empty, a place that is not filled with the fire of Jesus Christ, which keeps all demons away.
It's not an easy concept. It's not as easy to understand as a deal made with the Devil. It is biblical, however. And if you think about it makes sense.
How would a soul be empty? Each soul is filled with spirits. Every person is a battleground for spiritual warfare.
Even a person who has given himself to Jesus is still tempted and tortured by demons.
And just as importantly, a soul who is plagued with demons can still reach out and call on the name of Jesus.
If what you say is Biblical, point to a Scriptural reference and to theologians who interpret it in a way that supports your conclusion.
I know people who have trod the pits of hell...and come back into the light.
What you are saying is not necessarily incorrect but I think it is slightly askew.
Of course, I might be misinterpreting your meaning or misunderstanding your point.
If I am missing your point, help me see it.
This is not a casual topic for me...and I humbly ask you to help me see what you are saying.
If on the other hand, you are a novice in this area (and being a novice does not mean you are incorrect)...no harm done.
But for those who lurk and those who read and are near answering the call of Christ...make sure you are not speaking of theory untested and untried.
I do not think you mean to be arrogant.
There are people here who are way beyond "easy"!
This discussion is not about you or me...do not assume that those who are reading this thread are limited to "easy"...
If you write your comments so as to include those who have first hand knowledge of demonic possession, you will have spoken to the more mature element reading this thread.
If you think the readers herein are limited to "easy concepts," you are dramatically underestimating your audience.
GOD DID SAY THAT HE IS MARRIED TO THE BACKSLIDER.WE REALLY NEED TO PRAY FOR THE CHURCH.NO MORAL COMPASS,SO GOES AMERICA
I agree. Furthermore, sinfulness extends beyond immorality to anything we do for good, independent of faith through Him.
Fair enough, but how do you explain Pelosi, Reid and the leftist legilature?
Personally, I believe that the Republicans, in the last election, didn’t want the White House or Congress because they saw what was coming down the line in regards to the economy. They let the Democrats have the White House and they will blame them for what we are going through. As for Pelosi, I think that they let Pelosi be the fall person and gave her the Speaker of the House position. Nobody else wanted it. As for Reid, he was a power house in the Democratic party, but now they will go down with him.
Here’s to hoping you are right.

Fr. Euteneuer, with all the evil he sees an exorcist, certainly can speak out on the subject well, and with each of his commentaries, his words seem to get stronger and stronger. Join us in prayer for Fr. Euteneuer. He's one of our rare courageous Catholic leaders not afraid to speak the Truth.
