Demons, Mental Illness Or Sinful

Christ and/or the apostles healed some and cast out demons in other sick people. What's the difference between 1. Demon Possession, 2. Mental Illness and 3. Sinfulness? Catholics have people that determine these matters. What are the criteria for this distinction?

I have mental illness myself and it is demons.

It is also Multiple Chemical Sensitivity.

I am the only one who says it is demons, everyone else keeps calling it an imbalance or blaming chemical manufacturers.

I know it is demons because I see them with my inner vision. They are quite obvious. And its clear to me all illness is demons, aside from rare instances of god given illness perhaps, or rare situations where the body is abused. However I do not believe any illness to be real and have quite substantial knowledge in the field.

The way I understand it is we are born in the flesh with a soul. Being two parts. Physical and Spiritual. Your physical body needs food in hunger, sleep when tired, and warmth when cold. Your soul needs God to guide your physical body to decsern right from wrong. Satan would like to deceive you and make you do what is wrong. When you knowingly do what is wrong this is called sin. When you continually do what is wrong and no longer know you are doing wrong this is demon possession I also believe that demons can make the body and mind sick. I think it is our physical responsability to take care of this with medicine or surgery coupled with prayer and supplication. Taking care of the whole person. The one relies on the other.

I am not a Catholic, but love all of the Catholics here and those that are simply practicing Catholicism in the PDC.

One the tenets of exorcism in the Catholic church, is that for every truth the devil WILL TELL, he throws lies in with it. That is the devil's nature and that of demons, too.

Of course we should pray for healing. By Jesus' stripes we are healed. Often times its satan who keeps us sick, not sin.
---joe on 11/5/05


Sickness can be caused by sin, but not always. They asked Jesus of the boy born blind, and if it was because of his sins or the sins of his parents, and he said no it was so God would be glorified when he was healed.
---wes on 11/2/05




Jesus cast demons out of those who were sick. They accused him of casting out demons from power from Satan, which could not be true because it would be a house divided against itself, which can't stand. Sickness is from Satan, but God does allow it at times.
---wes on 11/2/05


I am sorry my answers are long but they are important. I cannot explain correctly if I do not write what I believe to be true. I thank you for your question, and nice to hear from you. I keep you in mind for what you have taught me. Humility, and gentleness, are but two of them. I am doing my best on those sister. thank you

9. but never healed himself or asked another human to heal him. His friend Epaphroditus was near death (Phil. 2:27), and Paul did not heal him. God intervened. When Timothy was sick, Paul did not heal him, but told him to take some wine(1 Tim. 5:23). Paul left Trophimus sick at Miletus (2 Tim. 4:20). Healing were not the everyday norm in Paul's ministry, but did occur when he entered a new region, where the gospel and its preacher needed authentication (Acts 28:8,9).
---Lupe2618 on 10/14/05


8. Paul then abandon Ephesus and went to Corinth. Dory, the healing that is done today is like no other. I believe when Christians take one verse and use it for all purposes, they forget the other Scriptures to look at. They follow one and no matter what they abandon all the other Scriptures that speak about illness and death. God certainly still hears and answers the faithful prayers of His children. The gifts of healings were never used solely for bringing people physical health. Paul was sick
---Lupe2618 on 10/14/05


7. let me carify something, He wrote to the Corinthians the things that he heard was happening in the church. The Corinthians had wrote a letter to Paul asking for clarification of some issues. Paul responded by writing the letter known as 1 Corinthians. Planning to remain in Ephesus a little longer 16:8-9, Paul sent Tomothy first to Corinth (4:17; 16:10-11. Disturbing news reached the apostle, possibly from Timothy of futher difficulties at Corinth, with the arrival of the false apostles.
---Lupe2618 on 10/14/05




6. which is in verse 1:11. Paul went to them to remind them who they were in Christ and the things wrong they were doing. That immorality must be judged. principles of marriage, to be sensitive to conscience, and to use a patern of self-denial. And in the case I talked about, how to take the institution of the Lord's supper serious. To examine themselves when they do take it. So as you can see that this one example had its own meaning and not like the others. One purpose only.
---Lupe2618 on 10/14/05


5. they treat with indifference the Lord Himself-His life, suffering, and death (Acts 7:52; Heb. 6:6; 10:29.) The theme of 1 cor. is that the false apostles began by assaulting the character of Paul. They had to convince the people to turn from Paul to them if they were to succeed in preaching domonic doctrine. The visit that Paul did was called "painful visit: 2:1. While in his ministry in Ephesus, he received further reports of trouble in the Corinthian church in the form of divisions among them

4. I don't have all the answers because i am not God and don't know what is involve in the running of the world. I beleive what I learn through Scripture and try never to leave one Scripture out. For they all connect into one plan. The judgement that God put on the believers in 1 cor. was a hard one. It would not matter how much anyone prayed it was a chastisment from God for not discerning the Lord's body. When believers do not properly judge the holiness of the celebration of Communion,
---Lupe2618 on 10/14/05


3. Before we pray we already know inside of us that what we ask might not be what God wants. Yet we pray because we are connected to God and we can come to Him for our problems but God looks at the whole picture. In many cases people do get healed. Like in the case of Eloy. In others they don't, and we miss them so much. we miss them because we are people that are selfish, and want them here for ourselves but God has other reasons why their lives end, here in this world.
---Lupe2618 on 10/14/05


2. In Scripture we are told that sickness comes from God, the enemy, and from our mortal bodies. Prayer is commanded of us but as we know not everyone is cured. We know inside when we pray that only God's will is going to be done and there is many reasons for that. Since God see's everything and knows what is correct, for each application of prayer He responds with His answer in each case. He is not injust but is unequal in many cases. Not everyone gets the same answer.
---Lupe2618 on 10/14/05


Hello my dear sister Dory, I am glad to answer you in the best that I can. I do miss not talking to you. Let me first explain a little about sickness. As I said before sickness comes for many reasons in Scripture and each one mentioned has its own intrinsic meaning in the lives of unbelievers and believers. Each verse with its own context as a whole. We need to read each one separate from others. What is happening at the time, to whom it was given, why they have it, and what the application is for each.

Lupe ... I haven't been in a discussion with you for a l-o-n-g time! :)

I have a question for you today. If God chasten's with sickness and disease, how do you pray for healing? Or do you pray for healing?
---DoryLory on 10/13/05


4. not only by divine decree, but by divine intervention. The Lord chastens to drive His people back to righteous behavior and even sends death to some in the church (verse 30) to remove them before they could fall away (Jude 24). God with a reason and a purpose as explained in verse 30-32. And all other verses themselves have a reason and a purpose. It is not a matter of who is right or wrong but how we can apply each one to our lives after reading God's meaning for the verses first, and then applying.
---Lupe2618 on 10/13/05


3. In the case of verse 11:30, we can see that the offense was so serious to God that God put the worst offenders to death, an extreme but effective form of church purification. (Luke 13:1-5; Acts 5:1-11; 1John 5:16). And verse 11:32 continues with, "But when we are judged, we are chastened by the Lord, that we may not be condemned with the world." Here, if we read the whole context he follows with that verse in 32. Believers are kept from being consigned to hell,
---Lupe2618 on 10/13/05


2. In 1 Corinthians 11:30, you will see that those that take the bread and drink of the Lord in an unworthy way get weak, sick and even die. Now this sickness and death must come from God. "For this reason many are weak and sick among you, and many sleep." We don't know all of God, but what we do know is, all of it is true. How we apply each case in our lives is what is important. God deals with so many and every part of each one's life.

Sister Terri, there is many answers here that or so correct. I have looked at every cause of sickness in Scripture and there is sickness for many reasons. The application for sickness is also very large. If you look at an index for sickness in your bible you will find many reasons why there is sickness and many reasons why it comes about. Sister Dory gave reasons how to heal and sister Ulrika gave many reasons why it happens. No one knows all the reasons but God.
---Lupe2618 on 10/13/05


I learned this verse and it helped. 2Timothy 1:7 other verses I like are James 5:14,15
---Ulrika on 10/10/05


Sometimes God causes an illness. God can cause a person to die. In this case it was because of David's sin. 2Samuel 2:15-18
It is not always because of sin. 2Cor.12:7
God makes the dumb, deaf, seeing, and blind. Exodus 4:11
God allows Satan to cause illnesses. Job 2:4
God tests people, humbles people, and chasens people Rev. 3:19
Satan tempts people. Luke 4:1,2
We do not always know why a person is ill.
---Ulrika on 10/10/05


Pt1
God does not put sickness on people!! Satan comes to steal, kill & destroy -- God comes to give abundant life (John 10:10). Is sickness abundant life? Even a headache is debilitating! The Bible says that God is our healer (Exodus 15:26, Psalm 103:3, Psalm 107:20, etc etc). Look up the verses I referenced in my 6-part post of 10/09/05 & you will see that sickness is of the devil. God does not go to His arch enemy, Satan, to "borrow his stuff" in order to teach His own children a lesson!!

Pt2
God is love (1 John 4:8) and He teaches His children through His Word (2 Timothy 3:16).

Jesus taught us to pray that it will be done to us on earth as it is heaven (Matthew 6:10). There is no sickness in heaven therefore we know that it is not God's will for us here on earth either.
---DoryLory on 10/10/05


Pt3
I'm not saying that God doesn't use sickness ("ALL things work together for good to those who love God" - Romans 8:28). When we draw close to God, He draws close to us (James 4:8). Anyone who knows God is the healer will run to Him and the Word, and God will get involved in that situation. God always does good. But that is very different than saying that God *gives* people sickness.
---DoryLory on 10/10/05


Do you think when a person gets sick and or dies it is because he sinned, or has a demon? How many of you can say, you never get sick, and you are not going to die. What about Job? There is sickness and death because of the curse because of the fall.
---Ulrika on 10/10/05


Do you understand what I am saying? Because there are opposing posts, then there has to be some of them erroneous and not based on the only authority, the Scripture, you adhere to and they are therefore misleading to those who come seeking the One true God. "What is truth?", as Pilate said.

Moderator, do you agree that God puts sickness on people to bring them to a place where they have to trust Him or draw closer to Him? Or do you agree that the devil is the author of sickness as another stated? Or do you believe that sickness is the result of living in a fallen world? Or do you believe we have been redeemed from the curse of the law and have been given the gift of health, healing, and strength? Or do you believe God changes His mind depending on which of His children He is speaking to?

Moderator - Mental illness can be related to demons or a chemical imbalance.
---Esther on 10/9/05


Madison, yes, bad things happen to good people because we live in a fallen world. I may believe that sickness is of the devil but I do not approve of anyone saying that sickness is the result of sin. That is another judgement call & the business of God alone.

Worldy methods of healing are fine & good (and actually from God anyway. Let's face it, man could not invent the asprin without God) but only when we understand that sickness is of the devil, will we also seek spiritual deliverance & healing.
---DoryLory on 10/9/05


Sometimes God puts sickness on a person to get them to a place to where they have to trust him or to bring them closer to God. This isn't in all cases, some sickness just happens and some is from Satan. No one knows the reason why behind someone getting sick. Like my mom died of COPD, she weighed 47 Lbs when she died and she was only 56 years old. I still don't know as to why she got sick and died. but I know she is in a better place.
---Rebecca_D on 10/9/05


The goal of most mental health professionals is to get a mentally ill person as fully functioning as possible. For some that means total independence and freedom. For others it may mean not working full time and being in therapy for a long time. The clients I work with have differing levels of functioning. Some will always be dependent. Others will move on and live fully functioning lives.

There are people who develop clinical depression after losses and/or trauma. Some can be helped with prayer and support, others need meds and therapy.
---Madison on 10/9/05


Dory: I am in agreement with you that ALL illnesses, physical, and mental, are the result of living in a fallen world. However, that is different than saying it is the result of sinfulness on the part of the mentally ill patient.
---Madison on 10/9/05


Pt1
I said I believe sickness is of the devil. I didn't advise anyone to not take medication, neither do I believe that would demonstrate responsibility or wisdom.

I firmly believe that people who tell others they are not healed because they do not have enough faith, will answer to God (Matthew 7:1). There are many reasons why a person might not get healed and without a specific word from God Almighty, no one has a right to make such a call.
---DoryLory on 10/9/05


Pt2
By depression, I mean clinical depression, not being down or discouraged because of circumstances. I mentioned depression because of my personal experience, Matthew 8 and Mark 5 (referenced in my earlier post) clearly speak of someone not in their "right mind" (see Mark 5:15). I would also like to say regarding mental illness, that worldly treatment may lead to a method of control but will never provide total freedom or deliverance ... in my opinion.

Some mental illnesses such as Bipolar and Schizophrenia can be inherited. The people in my family with these illnesses are saved. Praying for someone is much more helpful than putting a guilt trip on them.

I wonder how many of these church people, who tell people suffering from mental problems to throw away their medication, do the same when they have a migraine, an angina attack, cannot walk because of the pain of sciatica etc? Very few I guess. Sounds like a few cases of 'do as I say, not as I do'.
---M.P. on 10/9/05


Nothing wrong with exhortation but telling people they don't need meds, or that if they take meds they don't have faith in God is wrong.

I just believe that there are too many arm chair psychiatrists in the Church who do more damage than good.

The stigma of mental illness in the Church is horrible. I have sat in church and felt ashamed of my depression and problems because of Christians telling me I must lack faith in God if I am depressed.
---Madison on 10/9/05


Unfortunately, I have heard of God loving believers who suffer from mental illness being told to throw away their medications and just put their faith in the Lord. Renounce their sin and be healed. This has led to disastrous, and in some cases devastating decomposition of the mental illness because of the lack of medication. This is where discipleship is a partner with medication management and therapy.

Furthermore, as you mentioned, there is a difference between demon possession and demonic influence. Certainly, some depression is because people believe lies of Satan. That is where cognitive therapy can work in helping dispute the lies with truth from God's Word.
---Madison on 10/9/05


You are also citing one aspect of mental illness, depression. Some depression is situational, due to circumstances in our lives. After a loss, or trauma, one can become depressed. To tell such a person they are sinning or demon possessed is ludicrous.
---Madison on 10/9/05


Dory: Because of limited space, I could not elaborate earlier on why statements about demon possession can be damaging. It is true that SOME depression can be caused by spiritual matters. NOT ALL are because of spiritual matters. That is why I believe in medication, cognitive behavioral therapy and discipleship.
---Madison on 10/9/05


Nellah: That may be true for SOME schizophrenics. But, how do you explain believers who are schizophrenic? They cannot be inhabited by a demon. There has to be a medical explanation for it, and there is. Brain chemistry. There are many medications which help schizophrenics with controlling the hallucinations. Accompany that with therapy, and a person can live a productive life with minimal symptoms.

Pt1
Demon possession is when a demon or demons have control of a person. A Christian cannot be possessed by demons (1 John 4:4) however we can see from the story of Ananias and Sapphira (Acts 5:1-11) that Satan can have an influence over Christians.

I believe that sickness, including mental illness is of the devil. The Bible says that Satan comes to kill, steal, and destroy (John 10:10). If that doesn't describe sickness, I don't know what does.
---DoryLory on 10/9/05


Pt2
From Scripture we can see that there are many spiritual entities which Christians & non-Christians alike can experience. For instance, fear is a spirit (2 Timothy 1:7). We all know Christians can struggle with fear. The Bible also says that prostitution is a spirit (Hosea 4:12 and 5:4); seizures are caused by spirits (put Matthew 17:15 and Mark 9:17 together); there is a deaf and mute spirit (Mark 9:25); there is a crippling spirit (Luke 13:11) which Jesus called an infirmity from Satan (v.12&16).
---DoryLory on 10/9/05


Pt3
Many times the Bible says, after Jesus drove out the spirits, the people were healed (Matthew 8:16, 9:33, 15:22,28, etc). These do not necessarily indicate demon possession but there is certainly a demonic involvement.

Put the stories of Matthew 8:28-35 and Mark 5:1-20 together and you can see that violence and mental illness are demonic.

In 1990 I went through three months of depression. It was as if there was a grey, dismal cloud hanging over me, affecting how I felt every minute of the day. It was a horrible experience. It finally left after 3 months of exercising my authority over it through confessing and claiming healing and deliverance Scriptures. When it left, I felt it leave. I felt it literally lift off of me and my disposition was immediately changed. You will never convince me that depression is not spiritual.

Pt5
We have a Christian friend who was a pastor. He loves the Lord with all his heart. He is a very kind, gentle man who loves people and ministering to people. Yet he has had three incidences in his life when he became suicidal. How can this happen? Very simply, Christians are not immune to the tactics of the devil. The Bible says he is a schemer, he knows our weaknesses and he can affect human flesh, even causing chemical imbalance.
---DoryLory on 10/9/05


Pt6
How these statements can cause damage to any Christian is beyond me. If anything I would think they would be liberating. If demons are the cause of depression then I know I can be free of that bondage, in Jesus' name, because Jesus has given me authority over all the power of the enemy (Luke 10:19). I have hope in Christ to be free, praise God!

Depression is often caused by Satan, why do you think many want to end their life? I am sorry but the word of God says that Satan can cause a disease to come up on a person.

Being Bible trained qualifies you to speak authoritatively on scriptural issues. You seem to lack qualifications to speak on mental health issues.

Such statements as you made earlier have done damage to faithful Christians who suffer from mental illness.

Rebecca: Depression is often due to a lack of seratonin in the brain. Sin and Satan don't cause the brain chemistry to be imbalanced. A person can be faithfully serving the Lord and still suffer from depression. I have seen it and experienced it. Medication is often the answer.

As for schizophrenia, it is definitely chemical. A person experiencing psychosis is not demon possessed. Their brain chemistry is out of whack.

A born again christian can't be possessed by a demon. Good and evil can't coexist in a redeemed person. A christian can be influenced by evil spirits or deamons but not possessed.

Demon possession is when an unsaved person is inhabited by a demon. Saved people cannot be possessed by demons. Mental illness is when there is a chemical imbalance in the brain which affects mood and possible psychosis. Sinfulness is when a person steps out of the will of God.

Saved people cannot be possessed but they can be mentally ill. Mental illness is often inherited, but not always. Depression, mania and psychosis can be relieved with medication and therapy.
