Coming from a Christian background, there's almost no reference to these kinds of relationships in the Bible. There is nothing there which prohibits
such a union- and some supportive evidence.
Please let me know if Im wrong.
shows the most common belief.
It says they seduce while asleep in dreams, drains energy until death, uses collected sperm to impregnate a female.
I'm in contact with a number of
men and women who are currently involved with spirits and countless who
report "Brushes". Zero experience anything similar to the wiki account. The dreams do occur but the main contact is not while sleeping.
The popular societal Wiki account is writings from 1486
- the heat of the
. It was a dark time for the church and they attempted to defeat the
Pagan religion using fear. The Pagans believed many spirits were beneficial or neutral to man. The Jesuits rounded up all these Pagan spirits, slapped
a "Demon,Evil,Dangerous" label to control the population. Demonology
spirits were blamed for:
*Probably the evil giant squid that swollowed up whole sailing ships just before they fell off the edge of the (Flat) Earth.
Some other beliefs of on The Wiki reference
*Children taken away from women and replaced by devils. God allows this and other childhood sickness to occur as punishment to their doting
*Witches should be driven out and killed. (I assume this includes all non-Christian faiths, all of us who are "Sensitive" or report paranormal
Here's the key:
"There are no rational creatures except men and Angels; therefore they can only be devils."
I believe these spirits are among those "rounded up", relabeled "Demon, Evil, Dangerous". My reasoning is all
the longer term
accounts I've come across report gentle, thoughtful and kind partners free of evil intent.
Contrary, it's the Wiki stigma which is always repeated by others (Known as false)
There's also Ida Craddock
with her "Heavenly Bridegroom" in the late 1800's with extensive Christian views.
Some of her points:
Priests, Nuns reported these unions to their superiors with no rejection. St. Teresa, a nun who was a clear-headed woman of known integrity and purity
was one of the parties to a union. The Church promptly decided that the congressus was not diabolical, but heaven sent.
Witchcraft records contain accounts of priests who were burned at the stake for a union of this sort extending over forty and fifty years.
Pope Gregory VII, who is known as Hildebrand was said to have a spirit with whom he maintained such a union.
There is also the Christian belief of the Virgin Mary and her spiritual visitor. One can easily argue it was only a one-time occurance and by God
himself. (Vs a "Normal" spiritual relationship)
I also believe God would never
break his own laws for any
reason what so ever. Period. Mary's encounter simply couldn't happen if it
I've learned in my research that some evil, malevolent beings can imitate these spirits but only for a short time
before their true motives
become apparent, as I suspect in TurboDC's case.
I may appear closed minded but actually open to all evidence. Some report both good and bad shorter encounters and I take all into consideration.
I personally don't accept the popular societal Wiki account as fact, nor a blank unsupportive "Evil Demon" label.
