I cannot answer for the person who mentioned "other avenues" ...but i say the same as that person but what i would mean with "other avenues" is
still in God's avenue,just not Catholic as i agree that they choose who will fill those positions,and they write way too many cases off on mental
issues then providing the oppressed person with no spiritual help but rather a doctor and pills.
There are so many churches who practice exorcism,there are individuals who perform it still in God's "avenue" though it is just that they don't
follow / trust /believe in organized religions.
There is One God/Jesus/Holy Spirit but how many different Christian groups/churches are there who believe they are the true/correct ones...every group
think they are the true ones in God's eyes and the other Christian group/church is wrong and so vice versa
If you are a Christian you would know the Bible says we fight evil spirits and so should stand up and take the Armour of God,but way too many
Christian groups write certain cases of possession off too easy..yes there are cases mentally related but why did we get word to prepare for battle
against spirits and not flesh,these groups choose to ignore a lot of serious cases and people end up seeking help from other believes/religion
Why do non Christian religions know more than Christians about evil spirits and other things (amount of people in Christian & non Christian),they end
up in a lot of cases helping people with problems like possession/hauntings/curses than Christians,which i respect as they don't close their eyes to
the obvious and are not ignorant,so if you choose a Christian group who don't really help people in need are they really good people.
I believe in God His Son and The Holy Spirit not in man made churches,so if you feel you were called to help with spiritual warfare see that the true
church is Jesus,not a building where money is more important than helping people in need.
I do not disrespect or wanna fight with any individual member of any such group/church but the people who run these money making churches and fool
people and chase people away from God cause of their actions i disagree with,i mean do these people in charge really think the whole world are
fools,they are losing souls as people think Christianity is just a "man made" religion,writing more and more real possession off on a daily basis,
thanks to such groups we who call ourselves Christians are fake in a lot of peoples eyes,K individuals choose what they feel they need and trust to
get to God,so i respect that,but sorry i had to say certain things what i feel is true,it is just my opinion and belief.
Good luck and keep searching until you know where you wanna go,be sure, & no but NO doubt when making the choice
