She refused to worship and serve the creature so they demonized her in order to try to control her.

Katavasia:

The context of the statement in question concerns demonic activity, but why do you think I disagree with 1John 1:5-10 (Romans 6:23, Hebrews 9:14), especially verses 8 and 10? Additional verse in the Bible are: 1Corinthians 6:11, Ephesians 5:26,-27, 1Thessalonians 5:23, Hebrews 2:11.

Katavasia, people are often uncomfortable when the subject of possession is discussed, yet, some people react to things within their own lives. If you know someone that has Godly wisdom in this area, perhaps you could discuss this further with Him.

G4583 seleeniazomai is moon struck. They could have used the Greek word epilepsia.

**"Why don't your own sins make you possessed?"

I thought you were using an abstract construct. That is why I spoke in the third person. ....

You said "you don't admit"... That's true, since I'm not possessed by an evil presence, and so wouldn't need deliverance. You wouldn't want me to lie about it would you? While, I don't believe that Christians can be demon possessed, I did put your question to the Lord. He gave me a clean bill of health, and I believe him.**

If you say you have no sin, you deceive yourself, and the Truth [Jesus] is not in you.

**Matthew 4:23-24 & 17:15 say lunatic. ...**

And other translations say "epileptic".
---katavasia on 4/8/09


Katavasia 4/6/09: "Why don't your own sins make you possessed?"

I thought you were using an abstract construct. That is why I spoke in the third person. I didn't know that you were making an accusation, Proverbs 26:2, Revelations 12:10.

You said "you don't admit"... That's true, since I'm not possessed by an evil presence, and so wouldn't need deliverance. You wouldn't want me to lie about it would you?

**Katavasia 4/5/09: "Why don't your own sins make you possessed?" The answer could be that one is possessed by the Holy Spirit, a.k.a. wall to wall Holy Ghost. It might be that ones heart is not harden. But if a Christian were possessed by a demon (if this were possible), he might not admit to it, and would require deliverance.**

In other words, you don't admit that your sins might make you possesed, and you need deliverance.

**While Mark 9:21 says that he had this since childhood, we neither know how old he was when he was delivered, nor if he had epilepsy.**

Saying he was epileptic is a conventional shorthand.
---katavasia on 4/6/09




Katavasia:

Matthew 17:14-21, Mark 9:17-21, Luke 9:32-42

Excepting Saul and Pharaoh, I'm not sure there is much mention as to what sin caused a particular person to become possessed in the Bible. John 5:14.

Katavasia 4/5/09: "Why don't your own sins make you possessed?" The answer could be that one is possessed by the Holy Spirit, a.k.a. wall to wall Holy Ghost. It might be that ones heart is not harden. But if a Christian were possessed by a demon (if this were possible), he might not admit to it, and would require deliverance.

Luke 7:47, -Glenn

While Mark 9:21 says that he had this since childhood, we neither know how old he was when he was delivered, nor if he had epilepsy.
---Glenn on 4/5/09


Does it matter?

The point is that the Lord Jesus freed her, and she loved Jesus so much she was privileged to be the first to see the risen Lord.

**Probably, she sinned and received the demons. **

And what sin did the epileptic boy commit whom Jesus delivered?

Why don't your own sins make you possessed?
---katavasia on 4/5/09


We don't know.

Probably, she sinned and received the demons. Involvement in witchcraft is a common way to "open the door" to possession. There are some people that believe (and some don't) sexual assault is a possible way to become oppressed, or possessed.

There is a controversy amongst Christians as to if Believers can be possessed, or become oppressed by demons. But Romans 13:11-14,

Romans 16:27. Glenn

I think we're getting off track here. When I said "If something makes you compromise your character ..., you should avoid it." I was referring to things you could voluntarily get involved with, that would make you subsequently lose control. (For example, when a drunk driver kills a pedestrian, the ACTUAL crime doesn't occur on the highway, it occurs much earlier, in the bar, when he chooses to drink, knowing full well that he will lose control.)

How do they force you to do anything? The heart of man is desparately wicked. They have drugs today that can force a person to say and do exactly what they want. When Hitler executed the Jews they perfected science at that time. They slip it in your food, drink etc....Thats how.
---tonne on 2/25/09




StrongAxe-How do they force you to do anything that you don't want? They slip drugs in your food, drink, etc....That's how. The heart of men is desparately wicked. When Hitler executed the Jews you can believe they perfected science on humans. 6 million people is alot of people to exterminiate. In early Christianity the sciences weren't as advanced as they are today.
---tonne on 2/25/09


Tonne:

No, nobody has that right. But on the other hand, how can someone 'force' you to do anything at all? At the point of the gun? Modern society would say yes, but early Christians did't think so. They were told to worship Caesar at the point of a lion's jaw, and refused.
---StrongAxe on 2/23/09


StrongAxe-I agree that you should avoid anything that compromises your character but what if somebody forced it on you? Does anybody have the right to do that to another person?
---Tonne on 2/23/09


If something makes you compromise your character (whether illegal drugs, legal drugs, alcohol, or even Nascar), you should avoid it.

The notion of "illegal" drugs is a fuzzy, since it changes from jurisdiction to jurisdiction, time to time, and context to context - some drug are legal only if bought by prescription, some are legal in some countries and not in others, some are legal in some times and not in others (Cocaine was legal in the U.S., and alcohol was illegal during Prohibition). So legality can't be used as a barometer of morality here, since laws change - and even dangerous drugs have some legitimate medical uses (for example, marijuana for glaucoma, heroin for pain for terminal cancer patients, etc.)
---StrongAxe on 2/21/09


StrongAxe-- I was once an addict myself and I remember how different illegal drugs could make you do different things.One could make you paranoid, another sexually immoral, another steal, and another one lie.....These are all sins against God's word and anything that takes you out of your character is what I call possession because your not in your own mind.
---tonne on 2/19/09


tonne:

I think you misunderstand how the word 'possession' is being used.

Someone who owns drugs (and controls where they are, and how they are used) is in "possession of controlled substances". Someone whose life is ruled by an addiction to drugs, so the drugs have control over him, would be in "possession BY controlled substances". Two VERY different things.

Did anybody see the movie called the The Magdelene Sisters? These women were punished for what men have done to them (sodomized, raped, sexplayed, pregnancy) and have done to them for centuries....This is why these Beastly Systems exist today.
---tonne on 2/10/09


Mary Magdalene was a woman who was posessed by unclean spirits. She may have gotten them by nothing but sinning. Maybe even by small sins. Jerry Falwell may have had demons, but God did not say so. He did say that Mary M. had them. Never does the Bible say that she was the adultress. Never did it say how old she was. Therefore, it is safe to assume she may have been a middle-aged woman and only sickly. One thing is sure: Jesus healed her. Now she would have been clean, and not an adultress had she ever been one. Nowadays people want to mention her in liasion with the Lord, but it never happened. Jesus is God. Never would He want a person for His own partner. He is holy. Mary M. became only a disciple, nothing more.
---Betty on 2/9/09


They sacrificed Mary to the devils because of the truth. The Pharisees and Scribes hated Mary as much as they hated Jesus, probably even more because she was a woman with knowledge. Just like they crucified Jesus because of the truth and they didn't like His teachings.

Why is everybody commenting on the adultry part when in the Bible the men had concubines and 2 wives? Isn't that adultry as well???? Only if a woman does it she is a harlot. Furthermore why does the Bible say that harlots and outcasts enter into heaven before the rightous?
---tonne on 2/6/09


Katavasia-I am quite certain that if you had seven demons inside of you that you would sin over and over again. If your possessed its usually by illegal drugs thats why the law calls it "Possession of a Controlled Substance." They have drugs today that could make a person do anything they want, the Nazi's perfected science when they exterminated the Jews. Most drugs are made from Agriculture (plants) i.e. Poppy, Cocaine, Marijuana etc....The person in the Bible that is associated the most with Agriculture/Nature is Cain. Cain who hated his brother and slew him. Why because God accepted Abels offer and not Cains.

Dybbuk-According to Jewish Mysticism the word means clinging and in the metaphysics of Jewish reincarnation (gilgul), it is a ghost or disembodied soul that is able to penetrate a living body and interfere with the normal conscience of a possessed person. This is one of the demons that was inside Magdelene.

Seg,
I am talking about the willful act of murder, not self defense.

Do you think God will condemn you for protecting you and your family?

You should never just go take a life. That is wrong.

But Self defense is entirely different.

Are our Soldiers wrong? No, I don't believe that they are. If you read the contract they sign to be in the military, they don't have a choice.
In fact, they don't even truly belong to themselves anymore. They become property of the US of A.

Seg,
It actually says "do not murder".
To murder is to willfully kill someone.
When defending one's self, is different.

And what about our soldiers, who kill because it is what they are ordered to do.

There are lots of misinterpretations in the Bible. We are just now finding them and going back to the true word.
bob, I have to agree. Th law plainly says both the man and the woman are to be stoned.
Where was the man? is a question I have always wondered about.

Seg, you obviously did not notice that we have had two World Wars and countless revolutions. We live in a fallen world. Sometimes we are ordered to fight with a gun at our backs. At other times we fight the people with the guns at peoples' backs. If you want to just go to the slaughter and watch while your children, nephews or nieces, or grandchildren are slaughtered, that is your choice. I vote to protect not only my own but other children too. I will risk my life to do so. That is why the Bible promises that those who give their lives for a friend will inherit eternal life. Luke clearly tells us (Jesus's words) to sell what we have and buy ourselves swords (guns). Please read my previous quotes. Ch 22 I believe.

Leviticus 20:10'If there is man who commits adultery with another man's wife, one who commits adultery with his friend's wife, the adulterer and the adulteress shall surely be put to death. Maybe Jesus wrote bring me the man. Exodus 20:16 " You shall not bear false witness against your neighbor. He use their own law against them just as He always did in the gospels. He did tell her to go and sin no more. He knew if they brought the man before him, rather than be stoned to death he would reveal their plot. He knew they were bearing false witness. They were all in sin and walked away. Pure speculation on my part, but God left us plenty to speculate about, didn't He!
---Bob on 2/1/09


She got the demons simply by being an open channel for evil. We are all born sinful and until Jesus Christ redeems us to Himself we are subject to the wiles of Satan. We don't have to do anything to become posessed, nor did Mary Magdalene. Until she met Jesus, she had no hope of deliverance.
---tommy3007 on 1/31/09


When I am provoked into sinning, yes, the same thing applies. There will be a bad result of the sin until I repent sorrowfully for it. The Holy Spirit is there to justify Christians though. EG. If they have to kill someone or some people because their family is threatened by armed gunmen in uniforms. Supposing they know that they will die anyway, surely God will approve the person who tried to save the lives of others.

Mische :- what lies did the RC's tell about her?
---MIC on 1/29/09
brother, the scripture you posted does not give a name. The RCC has in the past assumed it was her when in fact it wasnt. All of the verses in John 8 say "woman" or "the woman". Brother , not one time is she named as an adultress.
Now in John 20 she is named clearly but not as an adultress.
The rumor that she was is an adultress is false. The reason I say the RCC is because they are the ones who first named her as an adultress. I believe that they have changed their opinion of her too.

I do agree that we can do things to ourselves to bring these things on us. We can also be the product of a bad environment too.

---katavasia on 1/29/09


When we sin, we give the devil a foothold. It might be a very subtle sin, or a very blatant one. Also, we give the devil the right to attack our nearest and dearest... Thus the sins of the fathers have results that reach the children, grandchildren, etc. Also, the mothers of course. The accountability for sin, and even sin, is not passed on, just the results. So the demons in Mary Magdelene came from her own sinning. But she was forgiven a lot of sins, so she loved a lot. Therefore these sins don't stay on her account.

The word of God Jn8:3-11 says "She was caught in the act of committing adultery"and according to the law of Moses should be stoned to death"they were trying to trap Jesus.I guess when you become adulterous you get posessed with your own desires of fornication, a powerful consuming force.However Jesus turns Her around and she becomes a worthy disciple to the end.The poignant meeting described in JN.20:15-18, describes her joy at seeing Her Teacher.

It is possible that she had some form of mental instability. Back then that was refered to as demon posession.

It is an "umbrella" diagnosis. I had a close friend who had it and I had to help take care of her and her children while she was dealing with it.

**Anyway, no where in the bible does it say she was a prostitute.**

The identification of Mary Magdalene, Mary of Bethany (sister of Lazarus), and the woman simply called "the sinner" dates from a sermon preached by Pope Gregory I.

After Jesus cured a man of an infirmity, Jesus said, "Sin no more, lest a worse thing come upon you." (in John 5:14) So, if sinning can bring worse than that infirmity, then sinning can result in having a demon or more than one. How? There is "the spirit who now works in the sons of diobedience," we have in Ephesians 2:2. This spirit of evil and selfishness "works" in people to have them disobey. And as they keep acting in Satan's spirit, they become "worse and worse" (2 Timothy 3:13) . . . more and more available to how Satan's spirits will effect and possess them, including with dominating emotions and dictatorial drives and reactions.

And just how did the demon enter the epileptic boy? With whom did HE have intercourse? He didn't. That demon could have entered through his mother's womb, he could have been born with it.

If it's not God's will for you to have the gift of discerning of spirits, then there would be no need for you to study demonic activity and how they operate and destroy people's lives. Jesus came to set the captives free, and it helps to know how demons operate to help set the captive free.
