Are There Demonic Spirits

Are there certain spirits that can come on a person, like the spirit of LUST for example or a spirit of LYING or the spirit of ANGER? My friend who also claims to be saved, says there is no such thing like different spirits. He says that sin is sin. Is he right?

Kathr, you talked a lot, you say,
"SO here PROVES WE DO THE SEEKING. Just let that seeking be BY FAITH. When YOU seek "BY Faith" it is not saving yourself."

What you do not understand is that the lost have no faith. Only believers that have faith seek after God. That is why the passage says,
"There is none who understand, there is none who seek after God." (Rom. 3:11). Why does it say that? because unbelievers have no faith. You seek Christ with no faith, you were seek by your own works, "You were seeking" when Jesus saidl
"He came to seek and to save that which was lost" Jesus does the seeking and the saving. You made the same mistake Israel did.
---Mark_V. on 1/14/14


Romans 9:32
Wherefore? Because they sought it not by faith, but as it were by the works of the law. For they stumbled at that stumblingstone,

Only those who believe they can WORK to save themselves, works, being works of the law, are misled. Israel SOUGHT IT BY WORKS. The did not SEEK it by FAITH.

Nothing about them not being able to SEEK on their own. They just SEEKED by works rather than SEEKED by Faith.

SO here PROVES WE DO THE SEEKING. Just let that seeking be BY FAITH. When YOU seek "BY Faith" it is not saving yourself. Don't make the same mistake Israel did.

And don't let Markv tell you you have to be born again first to seek.
---kathr4453 on 1/13/14


markv, please stick with God's definition of works. Faith is NOT WORKS. These verses PROVE you know nothing about faith, or even what we put our faith in. The Law the school master can bring even the most DEPRAVED person to Christ.

Galatians 3:12
And the law is not of faith: but, The man that doeth them shall live in them.

Galatians 3:23
But before faith came, we were kept under the law, shut up unto the faith which should afterwards be revealed.

Galatians 3:24
Wherefore the law was our schoolmaster to bring us unto Christ, that we might be justified by faith.

So how is it Markv this just didn't work for you???? BACK TO SCHOOL for Markv before it's toooooooooooooooo late.
---kathr4453 on 1/13/14


markv, I have NEVER given myself credit for my salvation. I have said many times on christianet how thankful I am to be saved. those words you spew out are from your own heart. your heart is prideful, hateful, without merit and your credibility on christianet is 0. you see markv, the only thing you ever post is trying to convince everyone that God sent His Son to die for a few people. everyone with brains know Christ died for all if all would accept, then all would be in heaven at death. we also know all won't accept Christ but we keep right on being a witness, praying for others and we keep trying to get others under Godly preaching.
---shira4368 on 1/13/14


Markv, That was not an answer to the question, but a lame excuse not to answer because you have no answer.

FAITH is believing Jesus Died for your sin. Our faith is in His Blood, PLEASE READ:

Romans 3:25
Whom God hath set forth to be a propitiation through faith in his blood, to declare his righteousness for the remission of sins that are past, through the forbearance of God,

Now MarkV it is YOU who fails to UNDERSTAND what faith is and what our faith is in.

You claim you were given faith to believe. my question is...TO BELIEVE WHAT? If you can't answer that ...get off these blogs.
---kathr4453 on 1/13/14




Kathr, you do not know what to make up or what to ask. You think you are going to get something you can jump on. But I tell you the Truth, and nothing works, and I understand. I don't expect you to understand, and I am ok with that. God meant it that way. Maybe He will reveal His truth at some point in time, but it has not happen as of yet. I will continue to pray for you. That God changes your heart and you will see how bad you have been against God, and just maybe you will also beg for forgiveness as I did.
---Mark_V. on 1/13/14


You lie or lust with a carnal heart.

Evil or unclean spirits or demonic spirits are those that like viruses need a host to operate or a willing person to communicate with them bringing them into their dwelling. There are other evils such as dwell by day or night live in high places and other beings to which The bible speaks of that operate in the spirit realm that can inhibit you if you allow. Their presents means you do not behave in a godly manner, you can swear uncontrollably, and speak with an unknown voice and operate different personalities, they manifest generally through these mediums.

including opening up your mind and body to certain plants drugs and the over use of alcoholic beverages.
---Carla on 1/12/14


Markv, that is not how salvation works. FAITH is believing Jesus died for your sin and took your sin upon Him. So this idea that you had to beg for mercy and forgiveness AFTER salvation is not an act of faith. It is works.

So tell us 1) how LONG did you beg?
2) how did you know how LONG to beg and when God FINALLY forgave and had mercy based on your begging?

Or are you saying this is just something YOU did, because you really didn't BELIEVE you were forgiven and received God's mercy upon salvation. OR is this something only Calvinists do because your gospel is not the gospel of scripture.

So what you are saying is your faith was not FIRST in the promise of forgiveness but in your election?
---kathr4453 on 1/12/14


Kathr, you just do not believe, no matter how much truth is given to you, you will fight with everything you can think of. You say:
"So Markv, why did you have to beg God for mercy? You claim if you don't beg for mercy, then you are not saved. That sounds like works, not faith." I never said you had to beg for mercy, I begged for mercy after God had changed my heart. Then I knew I had rebelled against God. Though He had already had mercy on me a sinner, I had finally realized what sins I had committed against God and begged for His forgiveness. Only those born of God come to God and asked for help. Unbelievers do not love God, don't have faith in God, they are children of wrath, they don't beg God for anything.
---Mark_V. on 1/12/14


Micha9344: I will not tell you how I know this to avoid boasting. God's book is erasable & rewritable. HE has technology that is far advanced than you can ever have on the earth. The body of Christ on the earth is a very dynamic one, not static at all. People are going in or coming out every minute. Eg when King David was sinning with Uriah's wife, the Holy Spirit was not in him then & his name was not in God's book..
---Adetunji on 1/11/14




Well, SIN, is SIN! But some sins are more grievous to God! Your friend is dead wrong. There are different types of demons.

---My salvation was different. I was heading to hell, condemned already, without hope and without Christ, but God who is rich in mercy and because of His great love for which He loved us made me alive together with Christ. He drew me away from the path to hell by His mercy, and His Son paid the debt I owed for breaking the law. He took my sins on Himself. I thank God for having mercy on me a sinner.
---Mark_V. on 1/11/14


So Markv, why did you have to beg God for mercy? You claim if you don't beg for mercy, then you are not saved. That sounds like works, not faith.
---kathr4453 on 1/11/14


Rev 3:5 He that overcometh, the same shall be clothed in white raiment, and I will not blot out his name out of the book of life...
"The Lord Jesus Christ said that names will be blotted out of God's book under certain circumstances Rev.3:5. It is not my word. Did you check it? HE says it, that is it, no shaking on what the LORD says."-Adetunji on 1/10/14
Maybe I have a different version than you. He did not say what you think He said.
There is a big difference between blotting out and not blotting out. And there is a big difference between saying it and inferring it.
You may want to check it out.
Rev 22:18 ...If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book:
---micha9344 on 1/11/14


Shira, first, you do not have to proof your salvation to me. You say:
"I was also saved by grace but the difference in you and I is I had a chance to accept Christ or reject Christ. I am so thankful I accepted Christ as my Savior." Your thankful, you were smarter then others and I see you took credit for what you did.

My salvation was different. I was heading to hell, condemned already, without hope and without Christ, but God who is rich in mercy and because of His great love for which He loved us made me alive together with Christ. He drew me away from the path to hell by His mercy, and His Son paid the debt I owed for breaking the law. He took my sins on Himself. I thank God for having mercy on me a sinner.
---Mark_V. on 1/11/14


All descendants of Adam are born sinners, even the elect. But only they will be saved, Those are the ones that are lost that Christ came to seek, find and save. That which was lost are those chosen by God. No one knows who they are the reason we preach the gospel to all people. They are the only ones made spiritually alive together with Christ, the rest are left dead in trespasses and sins, separated from God. ---Mark_V. on 1/10/14

Wrong Markv, the first time LOST is used is referring to the Lost in Israel Isaiah 49. Jesus came to the LOST in ISRAEL and not to any Gentiles while on earth. And many in Israel who were LOST still remained lost then as well as today.

Gentiles were never referred to as the LOST CHILDREN or tribes.
---kathr4453 on 1/10/14

markv, you are wrong about me as always. the older I get the closer to God I want to stay. many times you have contradicted yourself. true believers on christianet has been a witness and have seen all your post. don't ever think Im not saved. as a matter of fact I have ask you several times how did you get saved. I ask you if you knew where you were saved and you always just say by "grace". were you born to automatically be saved because you are one of the elect? I was also saved by grace but the difference in you and I is I had a chance to accept Christ or reject Christ. I am so thankful I accepted Christ as my Savior.
---shira4368 on 1/10/14


Shira, again you are opposing the Truth. A different spirit is influencing you to do that. In fact everyday you oppose the truth. As you get older, your day will come, as it does for everyone, and you will have to answer for what you have done against the Truth. All descendants of Adam are born sinners, even the elect. But only they will be saved, Those are the ones that are lost that Christ came to seek, find and save. That which was lost are those chosen by God. No one knows who they are the reason we preach the gospel to all people. They are the only ones made spiritually alive together with Christ, the rest are left dead in trespasses and sins, separated from God.
---Mark_V. on 1/10/14


markv, you are contradicting yourself when you say Christ came to seek and to save that which is lost. well, every single person is born a sinner. do you honestly think you were born one of the elect? wow, Ive been fooled all these years. I could swear my bible says we are all born in sin and we must be born again. the bible isn't called god's book. It is the Holy Bible, God's Word. God isn't the man upstairs either. He is God.

"...sin again without repenting will have his name removed from God's good book."-Adetunji on 1/9/14
Do you really believe God has an erasable and rewriteable book?, That He doesn't know who is going to be in the book in the final judgment?
If you do, you have a seriously weak god, one not worthy of worship and praise.
What does the all-knowing God have need for an erasure?
Is He dependent upon our actions? I say NAY.

Adetunji, you say,
".. Rev.3:5, "He that overcometh, ..., and I will not blot out his name out of the book of life, ...". He that overcometh >> signifies choice as any believer that fall back into sin again without repenting will have his name removed from God's good book."
Did you not read that:
"Who is he that overcometh the world, but he that believed that Jesus is the Son of God" (1 John 5:5) And again'
"For whatsoever is born of God overcometh the world, and this is the victory that overcometh the world, (even) our faith" (1 John 5:4). So all those who are born of God, of the Spirit are overcomers. None are lost.
It is not about man's works, but about God's power.
---Mark_V. on 1/9/14


Mark_V: Rev.3:5, "He that overcometh, ..., and I will not blot out his name out of the book of life, ...". He that overcometh >> signifies choice as any believer that fall back into sin again without repenting will have his name removed from God's good book. Also the sinner that repents will be saved(you have to choose).

Adetunji, (John 17:20) really explains (John 17:9) that Richard gave. When Jesus said,
"I do not pray for these alone, but also for those who will believe in Me through their word" Those who will believe in (John 7:9) when Jesus says,
"I pray for them. I do not pray for the world but for those whom You have given Me, for they are Yours."
Jesus was saying "those whom You have given Me" are those chosen by God. Before conversion they belonged to God (v 6:37). They were chosen by God before the foundation of the world (Eph. 1:4) when their names were written in the Lamb's book of Life (Rev. 17:6: Acts 18:10) where God says He has many people in Corinth who belong to Him but are not yet saved.
---Mark_V. on 1/9/14


Shira, you have opposed the Sovereignty of God from the beginning and tell others to do so. you oppose the Truth.
"For the Son of Man is come to seek and to save that which was lost" He did not come so that others would seek Him, He does the seeking. Not only does He seek them, but He finds them and saves them. No one rejects His salvation.
Therefore He is Omniscient, and know where to look for each of His lost ones, and He is also omnipotent, and so cannot fail to deliver them when they are found.
If you had noticed that in (Luke 19:10) does not say that Christ came here to seek and to save all of the lost, of course it does not. Half the human race was already in hell when He entered Bethlehem manger.

markv, my heart is very tender but Im doing just like you are doing. Im trying to tell you the truth about election but you just wont get it because its a spiritual thing. frankly, it is hard for me to believe you think God has people He is giving salvation to and sending others to hell. that is where your problem lies. I know Christ died for every single human if they accept Him. God's Word is so very clear and you interpret scripture like a babe needing milk. I mean milk from the Word of God.
---shira4368 on 1/8/14


Shira, everything I have told you I have got it from the Bible. The words are in front of you, but no matter how much truth is put in front of you, you will not believe. In fact you are hardening your heart even more as you answer. Then you attack me when I am giving you the Word of God. What you fail to understand is that you are going against the Word of God. If you did not understand that would be different, but you understand, it was put in front of you and you tell the world it is wrong, and that it is false. Who wants to stop the Truth from going out? The workers of lawlessness.

Shira, you say,
" markv, I have read the sower parable. as a matter of fact, I have read it over and over. you preach a false gospel. every single person is the elect when they are saved." Are they really?
Your fight is against God who calls all those He chose before the foundation of the world. The truth is in front of you, yet you do not believe
"He answered and said to them, "He who sows the good seed is the Son of man (Jesus Christ) The field is the world, the good seeds are the sons of the kingdom, but the tares are the sons of the wicked one." God sows by planting His good seeds, the sons of the kingdom on earth, and Satan plants his sons, the tares. They are not all chosen to salvation.
---Mark_V. on 1/7/14


markv, I have read the sower parable. as a matter of fact, I have read it over and over. you preach a false gospel. every single person is the elect when they are saved. yes, I am sealed and I am blood bought for eternity. I am one of the elect because I am a born again believer. God did know me before the foundation of the world. the way you try to tell others that only a few are the elect. the difference in me and you is I know everyone has a chance to be saved. God does not bring people into the world so they can go to hell. He died on a cross for "ALL MEN" that means the whole world. the whole world in the bible is not the same as you preach. I will always warn everyone they have a chance to be saved.

Bryan, you now say,
"How do you think Jesus made them shut up and go away with their tail between their legs. By speaking the word of God. It will work the same way today as it did 2000 years ago when Jesus spoke it."
Bryan, no where are we believers commanded to go after Satan or his demons. We are to preach the gospel Truth. And we are to not fear Satan for Greater is He that is in us then he who is in the world. We are to put the armor of God when we ourselves are attacked. But nowhere are we commanded to go after them. If you do, you need to study the Word of God real good, and be prepared to go against spirits which are very powerful. Good luck. Oh, believers do not believe in luck.

Shira, I've tried to be kind by not answering you, but your comments deserve a godly answer. I only do it because it's your soul at stake not mine. You say:
"steven, don't let markv sway you." I cannot sway someone who has missed the mark. "all are sinners until we are saved" That is true. " then we become the elect." No one becomes the elect, the elect have been chosen before the foundation of the world by God to be saved. " we are NOT BORN THE ELECT." The elect are born sinners like everyone else. we are all born sinners. "markv, even you were born a sinner and sometimes you still sound like one." I still sin but am saved by the grace of God through faith.

Shira 2: read the parable of the Wheat and the tares, then go for how to interpret the passages and what they mean beginning in (Matt. 13:37) You will see who plants the sons of the kingdom on the earth, and who plants the sons of the devil on the earth, and what happens to them at harvest time, at the end of the age. It is God who plants His children on earth. They are the elect of God. "And they (the angels) shall gather together His elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other" (Matt. 24:31).

"God chose you from the beginning unto salvation in sanctification of the Spirit and belief of the Truth" (2 Thess. 2:13). If that does not give you clues, then nothing will.

Shira 3: I really needed to answer you because what you say is not biblical. You said I was wrong when I said,
"The elect's security is the Holy Spirit, for they are sealed by the Spirit."
For it is written:
"Just as He chose us in Him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy, and without blame before Him in love. having predestined us to adoption as sons by Jesus Christ Himself" (Eph. 1:4,5)
And in (Eph. 1:13,14)
"In Him you also trusted, after you heard the word of Truth, the gospel of your salvation, in whom also, having believed, "You were sealed with the Holy Spirit of promise, who is the guarantee of our inheritance.."

Steven also says to make his point,
"the falling away begin in the sixties and What part of "the devil has deceived the whole world" do you not understand? Even the elect would be seduced, if that were possible. If the elect can be seduce, how much more that today's so-called christians is seduced?"
What part of the passage did you not understand? The elect are not seduced. The passage says, "if it were possible" not "that it is possible."
Get that right because the elect are never lost as you suggest. The elect are the genuine Christians, the others are only apostates, impostors who later fall away. The elect's security is the Holy Spirit, for they are sealed by the Spirit.

"Regardless of outside forces you are responsible for the choices you make. "The Pharisees acknowledge them all." Caleb

The Bible does not say you are "responsible for the choices you make" but rather you will be held accountable by God (it would help if you read Acts 4:26-28 & Acts 5:30). As for the Pharisees, they never acknowledged they were sinners or they wouldn't have been tagged as self-righteous by Christ.

As for Luke 10:20, "Notwithstanding in this rejoice not, that the spirits are subject unto you, but rather rejoice, because your names are written in heaven." Christ was merely confirming God has predestined the saved/elect to His disciples.

Sin is sin. Regardless of outside forces you are responsible for the choices you make. "The Pharisees acknowledge them all." Acts 23:8 Again, "For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms." And finally, Acts 19. But don't get distracted. "However, do not rejoice that the spirits submit to you, but rejoice that your names are written in heaven." Demonology might be beneficial in knowing our foes, but they are opposite of God, who "does not change like shifting shadows." It really isn't about demons and angels, but about Christ.

"What part of "the devil has deceived the whole world" do you not understand?" steveng"

"For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders, insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect." Matthew 24:24

According to Christ, God's elect can never ever be deceived by the devil. To say you can been deceived after God has saved you from your sins is erroneous and calling Christ a liar.

What binds the elect to Christ is "FAITH" which God has given to the elect. And this "FAITH" is not from within but from without.

"What part of "the devil has deceived the whole world" do you not understand?" steveng

And you're a living prove of what you quoted from the Holy Bible.

Here's prove of the deception you're in - how can a sinner who's born of the Spirit of God and given the gift of faith from God even fall away from the very faith God gives Him? Didn't you read and believe Christ?

"My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me: And I give unto them eternal life, and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand. My Father, which gave them me, is greater than all, and no man is able to pluck them out of my Father's hand." John 10:26-29
---christan on 12/26/13


steveng, let me demonstrate to you how erroneous and deadly your freewill doctrine is. You quoted Luke 23:34, "Then said Jesus, Father, forgive them, for they know not what they do." to imply God's mercy will be upon everyone, like all freewillers do.

Have you considered that His mercy is particular? He said so, "For he saith to Moses, I will have mercy on whom I will have mercy, and I will have compassion on whom I will have compassion. So then it is not of him that willeth, nor of him that runneth, but of God that sheweth mercy."

It's by His mercy that a sinner can repent and believe in His Son, nothing to do with whether you get to choose or reject, as you're implying.
---christan on 12/26/13


Bryan, the problem many have is that they do not believe in the condition of fallen man. If they understood that part very well, many things they say would make sense to them. The children of wrath, already doing the desires of their father the devil without even knowing they are doing them. They are blind with no understanding at all. They are on a road they cannot get out from, the blind leading the blind right to hell. They are condemned already, without hope. That is the world order. Only a supernatural act of God can take them out of that road to hell. Stop blaming your sins on someone else.

Many of you have been blinded by what the devil can really achieve.

Putting on the armour of God is a great way of keeping the devil away, but the last days is to be like the days of Noah. And many, if not most, christians have come to believe in Satan's lie that he is not the cause of all the problems in the world. Satan has deceived the whole world. The great falling away from the faith began in the sixties, their children made it worse and their children is making making it even more worse.

steveng, Ephesians 6:12 speaks about "Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil."

It doesn't say the devil will help you to commit certain sins in your life, that you wilfully do from the fall of man and that's because you're already in bondage to sin.

The context of Ephesians 6 as with all the Bible speaks about the Truth in the Lord Jesus Christ, who's the "way, the truth and life". Satan and his cohorts were created to deceive the world and that he does by speaking lies about who Christ is, for example, by telling you, that you're not dead and that you can choose Him, which Christ explicitly declare as a lie. That's deception!

Bryan, there is no spirit of lust or lying or even a spirit of anger. When a person lust, it comes from himself, so does lying and getting angry. It is nice to blame someone else as Adam did. You have to take responsibility for your own actions. Putting the blame on spirits is a copout.
There is spirits out there, and we are warned about them. But you are responsible for your own actions. When you sin, it comes from you. The flesh always wants to sin, its up to you to walk in the spirit.
---Mark_V. on 12/25/13


There MAY be some demons who specialize in certain sins, but about 99% of our sins are our OWN faults.

In true demonic possession, the will of the possessed is overcome. Frequently, he is unconscious during such episodes, and hence is not morally responsible for what is done during them.

In any case, I'm not that interested in knowing about the deep things of demons. Why are you?

Christmas Eve gift!

Then said Jesus, Father, forgive them, for they know not what they do. Luke 23:34

For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. Ephesians 6:12

joseph, you described the spirit of sin. all things evil in thought or deed is sin.

"Spirit of lust, anger, lying"? Are there such spirits hanging around to take possession of the man?

Gee, aren't all these the very attributes of the fallen man who's in bondage to the sin will? "Among whom also we all had our conversation in times past in the lusts of our flesh, fulfilling the desires of the flesh and of the mind, and were by nature the children of wrath, even as others." Ephesians 2:3

To say that there's the "spirit of lust, anger, lying" in existence that makes you do sinful things is to tell God you're not at fault and therefore you cannot be held responsible. That's what such doctrines teaches, blame it on the spirits.

Lidia4796 wrote: "Satan desires hurt,kill,destroy anyone .."

Satan has also come as an angel of light. He is a great deceiver in which he will deceive the whole world even the elite, if that were possible. He'll make you believe in ten truths, even perform miracles, to believe a lie as he did with Eve.

How does one know for sure? Read the bible, allow the Holy Spirit to guide you.

Find a searchable KJV bible (bible gateway) and search for the words "spirit" and "evil" to discern what is true and what is false.

Don't depend on your denominational church to tell the truth. Ask ten different churches the same question and you'll get ten different answers - even within the same denomination.

"He says that sin is sin. Is he right?" Yes.
"Are there certain spirits that can come on a person, like the spirit of LUST for example or a spirit of LYING or the spirit of ANGER?" Yes, However the word 'spirit' here can be best defined, in this contexts, as ones attitude, or mental disposition. In other words, "the disposition or influence which fills and governs the 'soul' (as the conscious mental awareness) of any one."

we are in spiritual warfare. not that I know for sure: But because of this I can not help but believe evil spirits can also open someone (whisper ideas) up to lust or other things. what I am sure of is there are evil spirits. and they have a job to do.
---laura on 10/11/13


I don't know about a spirit of lust, A person just lusts, it does not mean it is a demonic spirit. The same with these other things people claim, I know there are powers of different levels and sceptics who think they know it all will one very lonely night when they least expect it be right here trying to get people to believe their experience and will be sorry they accused others of lying.

Read your bible if you think there are no evil spirits.

hi shira and yes I understand why doctors & Gov.do what they do. all I am saying is demons did not leave this earth. but ignoring and drugging everyone is no way to solve the problem.it only allows it to get worse. there is money in drugs. does this make it right?

laura, doctors are doctors to make money. they have huge student loans or any loans they must pay. the way the medical field is, they aren't making very much. we can open up demonic activity by playing with the fire. we don't read horoscopes, Stephen king, anything on cults, watch some of the demonic movies out today. many ways.
---shira4368 on 9/26/13


did science open a door for demons ? Dr's give an excuse for everything to medicate. then the demons are free to run. no spiritual warfare now. no recognition of demons only mental illness. drugs instead of God ? I saw a man not to long ago. clearly with demon. but of course instead of dealing with what it really is , he is medicated and on disability. his demon is now allowed to say and do as it pleases. in public. cause the man is just crazy??.
---laura on 9/25/13


buddy? the short answer is hell no im sorry to say. its called mental illness. i thought i was possessed and so did the church they did what they did, and it didn't work, well it did, but the only thing that could solve it was medication.

im sorry to say you shouldnt ask these questions as people like those above will tell you junk.. im sorry to say there are no such thing as a demonic spirit that has the ability to possess a human being.

hope this helps and im quite angry at those who left comment regarding this issue on a kids question blog. i think that's a horrible thing to do to a kid.

i apologize for their stupidity
