Demons do not place thoughts in peoples heads.... they dont exist...
you should really rid your mind of this delusion... it seems to be the soruce of all of your other confusion. You have no free will. Your bad choices
are yours... your good choices are yours... no demon is whispering in anyones ear.
Thoughts are energy. Where do they go? Is this all there is? Are there other dimensions or realms? Can you prove Demons do not exist?
There are dozens of NT Scriptures referring to demon possession causing mental and physical illnesses. A major feature of Jesus' ministry is
portrayed as curing people of demonic possession.
Matthew 4:24: "...they brought unto him [Jesus] all sick people that were taken with divers diseases and torments, and those which were possessed
with devils, and those which were lunatick, and those that had the palsy..."
Matthew 8:16: "When the even was come, they brought unto him many that were possessed with devils..."
Matthew 8:28-34: "And when he [Jesus] was come to the other side into the country of the Gergesenes, there met him two possessed with devils, coming
out of the tombs, exceeding fierce..." (KJV; devils are normally translated as demons in other Bible versions).
Matthew 9:32-33: "As they went out, behold, they brought to him a dumb man possessed with a devil."
Matthew 10:1: "And when he had called unto him his twelve disciples, he gave them power against unclean spirits, to cast them out, and to heal all
manner of sickness and all manner of disease."
Matthew 12:22: "Then was brought unto him one possessed with a devil, blind, and dumb..."
Matt 12:43-45: "When the unclean spirit is gone out of a man, he walketh through dry places, seeking rest, and findeth none."
Matthew 15:22: "And, behold, a woman of Canaan came out of the same coasts, and cried unto him, saying, Have mercy on me, O Lord, thou Son of David;
my daughter is grievously vexed with a devil."
Matthew 17:14-18: "There came to him a certain man, kneeling down to him, and saying, Lord, have mercy on my son: for he is lunatick, and sore
vexed...And Jesus rebuked the devil; "
Mark 1:23: "And there was in their synagogue a man with an unclean spirit; and he cried out..."
Mark 3:11: "And unclean spirits, when they saw him, fell down before him, and cried..."
But this is all ignorance to you. You cannot prove your position, nor can I prove mine. So where does that leave us? I educate myself and make an
informed decision. My decision is demons manifest as thoughts in peoples minds and then cause people to act on those thoughts.
