I have a question for you about the pre-christian or pagan demons. If it's a regional demon do the methods used by the indigenous people work better? I ask because I have wondered if all demons are the same creatures but they have to "adapt" to the local paradigm.

I meant to ask you~
Have you read the book An Exorcist Tells His Story
by Father Gabriele Amorth? Or his follow up book?
He was the chief exorcist for the Vatican under Pope John Paul II. His books are very good, not at all sensationalist, written very informatively. They more are like an affirmation of the existance of evil, how to truly recognize and discern it apart from mental illness or fakery, how to prevent invitation... and the sad fact that most people deny the existance of the demon/ satan in today's world (which is very dangerous).
If you haven't read it, I strongly urge you to. As well as anyone else here who thinks they need to delve into these matters... you really have no idea the evil you are entertaining. It isn't "fun" or a "game" that you could possibly win. It really isn't.
There truly is a reason why the Latin priests and prayers are used. C'mon people!!

Forgive me i've spent all night reading over this post, and if I missed something.... But demons that predate or that aren't bound to any religion or god...this is something i don't quite understand. and if is true that would me that it would only leave the possessed body by free will? Would you be so kind to elaborate?

Nah you have heard stories at best, although those tails you heard while you roamed about, sparked an intrest for you, were likely true...Know this is how he has touched you... Find something better to do with yourself...

I would like to be clear that I'm not being condescending or arrogant in any way. I'm just saying if this is your current conclusion then you have a ways to go in researching this subject.edit on 2/26/2011 by PuRe EnErGy because: clarification.
