Demons were never considered "good" by ancient Hebrews. While there may have been some sects of them who believed that, just as there are today, most literature including what we think is the oldest book we have, and a part of the Dead Sea Scrolls, the Book of Enoch - shows that God condemned them.

en.wikipedia.org...

Anyone who told you it was a commonly held belief that demons were good with God just because God uses them to test people - lied to you. If that person is a smart person, they probably lied willfully.

More good reading, if old books about God, angels, and demons interest you. This book is also filled to the top with wisdom: en.wikipedia.org...

It should be noted that all we have are copies of copies of both books, not the originals, and radiometric dating is extremely flawed.

Oh, and demons do give us knowledge in the Book of Enoch, btw - knowing we would misuse it.

So your OP is from the point of view that "they are real"? Honesty, I only clicked it because I hoped someone was bringing it up to discuss whether they are fictitious or factual - not which-ever mythology ABOUT THEM (as though they are real) one adheres to.

I tend to think that it makes sense that some people believe God would have invented them to test us. That is what the whole "Job" thing was about.

But I don't have much more to say - because I don't believe in them anyway. Never met one. Some say they have, or have "hosted" one or more.

I DO, however, believe in angels!! I've had plenty of "supportive" things happen - disasters averted, etc.

Strange, I know. But I'm strange.
LOL!!

Carry on then. It will be interesting to watch how this unfolds. BTW, "how do you know?"

Did you know hippies were a result of the CIA working with Nazi war criminals to brainwash Soviets? I bring that up because of your avatar. Look at what happened in the 70s, spiritually and economically - worldwide. No matter how benevolent a lie sounds, a lie is poison.

I don't believe in them either. They exist, but like you said, that is not the topic.


Oh, and God didn't invent them. He just uses them.

Really? Nope - how do you know that? I was one of those "hippies" in the 70s. Never met a Nazi, or a CIA guy.
Hmm.
We were just really sick of war and toeing the establishment line.

I don't believe in them either. They exist, but like you said, that is not the topic.

You don't believe in "whom" either?
Hippies?
Or demons?
And if "they exist", why do you not believe in them???

Or ..... what???

How about you show me your sources for that (off-topic) claim??



You seem to know a lot - can't you just answer the people who are responding? Until someone more 'on topic' comes along?

It helps to clarify your premise.

Exactly. And it's not that far a stretch from "hippiedom" to not believing religious two-faced lies. Enter New-Age thought.



Yeah, we're still angry all right!!

There are endless articles on this topic. Just type "CIA paperclip hippies Soviets" in Google.

Hippies were a mind control experiment. They became useful for perception management after that. You weren't going against the "establishment." You were a pawn in a chess game. How do you get people to accept the Corporate Mentality WITHOUT contrasting it to hippies? Lol

Are you going to continue on topic here?
I want to hear about your "demons"...

also - not clear on whether you believe in them, or don't. Or WHOM it is that exists but you don't believe in.


(I know how to play chess, btw...please don't talk to me like I'm a dolt.)

"New-Age" thought is not New. Goes back to Babylon. Boy, for someone so concerned about avoiding religious lies....

BTW, almost every politician who claimed to be a Christian was a liar. Bush is a rather hilariously obvious example. They view Christianity as a philosophy and not a religion. Obama is a Theosophist (google).

I know about New-Age religion, too. And how far back it goes. Thanks.

ARE YOU going to discuss your demons, or just keep trashing me?
Poor etiquette.

That is not the topic.

No, I do not believe in demons. I believe in God.

The topic is whether ancient Hebrews considered demons to be good or not. The lie being spread is that Christianity changed the meaning of demons. I see it constantly.

Okay - well, your tone is rather off-putting.

Here, I'll help you get back on topic.

I thought your thread was going to be about whether demons are real or not. Obviously you didn't want to go that direction.
So - who is it that exists but you don't believe in?

Well, if you don't believe in demons, then ALL things said about them are lies.

Maybe you could change the title to reflect your topic better?
Or not. Up to you, of course. Sorry to have intruded.
