How to know whether you're dealing with a demon, or a bad person
Healing Elaine®: Bridging the Gap Between Medical & Spiritual®
Beyond the teachings from excellent priests and pastors, there’s little to no education for the masses on demonology. I’ve said many times that I’ve met horrible “Christians”, and lovely Atheists. Only experience will reveal to you a person’s virtue versus their signal. Fr Chad Ripperger, for example, has said that some of the most demonized people he’s ever met, have been the most holy.
How can that be?
Well first you need to understand scripture. For the sake of MY personal faith and this article, I will specifically reference Christianity. And second, you need to understand physics. “New Bible Thumpers” are akin to New Money People - they’ve got no experience but so much to prove through their newfound whatever. This is not the way. In order to understand something as profound as The Holy Bible, a person must LIVE. They must be able to apply the four quadrants of self: soul, mind, body, spirit - to form a solid opinion. Since we live in the physical world yet are here for the eternal world, we must understand both. Understanding demonology and evil requires more than what you can interpret with brief and limited experience of your faith, as life experience will inform other parts of you needed as lenses through which to interpret something so layered and severe.
