We have been having a very stimulating time taking on The Prince of Darkness Grim (as Luther calls him). Satan has been generating all kinds of interest in crowds and crowds of people. Each week our attendance at Gathering has hovered around 120 people as we've talked about Satan, demons, temptation and spiritual warfare.
Each week we wind up with more questions than we have time to answer from the stage, so I thought it would be a good idea to log those questions and bring them here to the Spiritual Discovery Blog. What follows is the whole list of our texted-in questions. In the posts that follow, I'll go to work on some of the ones we didn't have time for at Gathering.
If you haven't been out to Gathering yet, today's your last shot for the Lucifer series till we restart with a major change of pace topic: Questions For Heaven. If you want to catch the presentations we've done hope over to the Gathering Media Page and give them a listen!
Here's some of our Questions:
I have heard that there is a different demon for each sin. For example a demon of lies. What are your thoughts? Are there verses that support that?
Do demons try to intimidate Christians more than non-Christians?
One of my friends is having a psychic party with a palm reader. I want to be there to care for her, but I don’t want to mess with the spirit world. What should I do?
Can someone who orients with Satan (Satanists) cause demons to attack or possess another?
I don’t believe that Satan or demons are omniscient. When Christians are struggling we are called to confess our faults to one another so that we can be healed. Does our out loud confession give Satan fodder to use against us?
Can someone be led by the Lord to recognize demonic activity?
The Catholic Church still performs exorcisms today. Why doesn’t the Christian church?
Several years ago I went from a period of fire in my bones to suicide, depression, anorexia, etc. Everything I knew was against God’s will for me. Do you think God still tests people like he did Job or was it just lies I believed?
Whoever believes and is baptized will be saved. In the original context does this refer to the sacrament of baptism or just a cleansing of the soul?
