Ignorance and exorcism

It has been far too often that I have met someone who believed they needed spiritual guidance. When in fact all they needed was to speak with a doctor or psychologist. People are far too stubborn to admit that something normal could be happening to them let alone admit they may have a mental illness.

There was a time when it was acceptable for a priest or nun to perform an exorcism; and it is also believable that these people thought an exorcism was necessary. It is not acceptable though that their religious zealotry ended a woman’s life. In this day and age when we have become increasingly aware of genetics and mental illness it is nothing more than appalling to hear that a Nun was murdered during an exorcism. The nun had been known to suffer from schizophrenia, and the clergy took it upon themselves to free her of Satan’s power.

So this is my warning to all of you who believe and practice in the occult. Chances are those aren’t demons bothering you, and chances are that shooting pain you may be getting is not an angry spirit trying to hurt you. I would say that your chances are 99.95% positive that these “abnormal” occurrences that you experience are either psychosomatic or representative of a severe medical condition. So please seek help before something you may regret happens. If you don’t do it for yourself at least do it for those who love you.

  1. I’ve seen this same tendency among Jehovah’s Witnesses. Not that they get into exorcisms, but the organization fosters such a fear of the Devil (which is how they discourage involvement with the occult) than some who are inclined towards a “superstitious” mindset often see demonic forces behind the most innocent of occurrences – house settling noises, someone who is good at sleight-of-hand tricks, etc.
