What a crock. ''Only a Roman Catholic Priest'' can exorcise the house? That's as bad as saying a medium or a psychic is the only one who can
No. You are twisting my words. A Roman Catholic priest trained in Exorcism is the most effective person able to conduct an Exorcism.
Obviously, a Protestant minister could attempt to do so, or anyone else for that matter, but only the Roman Catholic Church has formally trained
Exorcists that undergo years of training and study in this area.
Conducting an exorcism can be very, very dangerous. These demons are powerful. Even Roman Catholic priests have lost their lives and health from
My suggestion is only that the original poster seek out the most highly qualified individual available to conduct a house blessing, and if needed, a
house Exorcism. Generally speaking, the most qualified individual would be a Roman Catholic priest trained in Exorcisms. They are a very rare
commodity - Typically these individuals cover multiple archdioceses.
Any believer who has been blessed by God with the gifts of discernment and deliverance ministry can pray against the (clearly demonic) manifestations
that are occurring in the house.
Agreed. But not everyone is as effective. When an Exorcism is conducted, a priest usually goes through several days of intense prayer and fasting,
and mental preparation to confront the demon.
Again, these are not matters for novices. These are cruel demons we are talking about. Someone unfamiliar with these matters should tread very
You do realize that it is theorized by most scholars of the art that it is INTENTION and BELIEF that drives out evil spirits, and not the process
Scholars are not typically spiritually-oriented nor spiritually gifted. There are some things that cannot be explained by science. Truth is stranger
Regardless, before an Exorcism is ever conducted, a priest will insist that all scientific explanations be ruled out. In the case of an individual,
this means undergoing extensive psychological and psychiatric evaluations to rule out any medical reason for the possession. It is only after medical
explanations have been exhausted before an Exorcism is ever even considered.
They say that if you do not have faith the process will work, you may as well not do it at all, because the presence will return.
IF you actually read my earlier post, I stated the exact same thing only in slightly different words. Demons, when exorcised, will oftentimes come
back even stronger, bringing several other demons with them. This is even explained quite clearly in the New Testament.
With that said, you don't know anything about the subject. Have a good day, and stick to topics that are more your grade level.
If you learn to treat other people with respect and consideration, you might actually learn a thing or two in these forums. Clean up your act.
