Yikes, Christians would be funny if they weren't so dangerous to others.
Personally, I find the DSM to be fairly contradictory, sometimes foolishly so, and somewhat dependent upon what is fashionable whenever it's updated,
but far less so than the Bible.
The Bible is full of stuff that can't possibly be true simultaneously, like the stuff about being the only god. If the christian god were truly
alone, it wouldn't, couldn't be jealous of "other" gods, because they didn't exist, it wouldn't couch its admonitions against them it the way it
does. If that god was truly all-forgiving, hell and eternal damnation couldn't exist. If that god offered unconditional love, it wouldn't put
conditions on it.
To believe any of those things simultaneously is the very definition of insanity.
But a lot of other beliefs are pretty crazy, too, although it doesn't seem to interfere too much with day-to-day survival.
So either you admit you are insanely delusional, or you admit that other systems are just as valid as yours, or go sit quietly in the corner and talk
with your spirit guides, angles (btw, are they right, obtuse, acute, or straight? just curious), or whatever else is in your head. You don't have to
take meds if you don't want to, but you also can't expect anyone to validate your delusions unless you validate theirs in return.
Most of the "demons" that people have to deal with usually are their own better sense telling them that their current belief system is seriously
whacked, and when they resolve the conflicts, the "demons" go away. But people hate to change, even when the change is for the better, and fight
tooth and nail to keep from it.
