This subject about demons and evil spirits is controversial to some.
However the concept was believed in a society that believe the world was flat,
and the sun revolves around the planet earth. i promise a part two, and with
some of my studies included in here:
Now first there a numerous accounts of Christ throwing out demons in the gospels, but they are greatly exaggerated. We must remeber this was written in a uneducated society. We are the educated.
In ancient India, where Christ travel through, several thousand of years before his birth, the whole concept of demons was invented. When people got sick they were though to be inhabited by evil spirits or demons. This type of belief is still prevalent in Africa, South American, New Guinea,Borneo and else where where primitive tribes still exist. The shaman or witch doctor will bring his or her potions and herbs and cast spells to eliminate the evil"demon" and cure the one who is sick.
I have always sad there are no demons and no devil and that so-called "possessions are either schizophrenia or the overactive and suggestive mind emotion in a big-time way. Under hypnosis, some people can actually manifest a blister when an ice cube is put on their arm or hand when told it is something very hot. The mind can be very powerful, especially in a person who is highly suggestive or mentally ill. The illness of epileptics can cause someone to think someone is "possess". At that time the judiac belief of evil spirits causing illness of some kind, which the writers of the bible exaggerated to be actual evil entities. It was simply illness of some kind.
Most scientist and scholars question the veracity of exorcisms, saying there is no scientific proof whatsoever for demonic posssession. Most of the evidence in this area, they said, points to psychological disturbances and mental illness. While most scientists and scholars say demonic possession does not exist. The early church used the fears and superstitious beliefs of the masses in demonic possession to advance their dogma of a devil and hell. Unfortunately, many christian churches today still have experts who handle exorcisms, especially the Catholic Church.
As i said the concept of demons and evil spirits possessing someone is not true, but a ancient fear and superstitious. I also want to say there is no homosexual demon or spirit, the things people come up with is laughable. It seems when we don't understand something it must have something to do with a spirit or demon, and that is not true either. People are way out of field with that one.
Now the exorcists movies are scary, and entertaining. However, there is no truth in that concept whatsoever.
