Please HolyPurpose, tell me you're joking here.
I agree with you. I think these guys think "demon hunting" is going to be like a episode of Buffy. You're not going to go out with a shotgun and a cross shooting these things in the head guys. Its a spiritual battle between faiths, nothing more. Demons are a way to relate one's emotions, the constant battle between good and evil.
So if you're looking to put on a trench coat and kill demons, go rent a video game. If you're looking to do something only a ordained minister can do, you've got some long years of schooling ahead of you.

The second thing you may not be comfortable with is acknowledging and wielding something which is taboo to the judeo-christian world; you must learn to focus and wield the energies of your spirit and the world around you, which may, truthfully, take years. Call it chi, call it whatever you like; there is energy in you and everything else, and like the energy which powers our homes and vehicles, it can be harnessed and used with the proper training and tools. Without this energy as your tool, you will not be able to combat the demon.

Ever see the movie Frailty? That's sort of what you're coming off as. You know, half religious, half crazy.
There is no such thing as good and evil, and I can't tell exactly what it is that you're thinking of doing... if it's a spiritual, internal thing, killing your own demons and clearing your head, then good for you. If you're talking about going after people who you perceive as "demons," well sir, I hope they catch you and lock you up for a long, long time.

Not just because all souls have a right to exist and be left alone, but also
because if you ever manage to catch the attention of a demon, your life
will be over very fast. Even if you'd train 200 years, you would be no
match to even a minor demon.
It takes a soul many thousands of years of training to become a light
warrior. I only know two such people, and one is still training, even he is
not able to chase away even a minor demon.
My advice - give up your intentions, focus on learning the lessons you
were born to learn.
