Demonology 101 – A Magician’s Point of View
Below are cleaned up excerpts from each of the Demonology 101 video narratives. I have included these to demonstrate (demon-strate:D) the differing beliefs about demons and demonology.
I have to admit to finding this particular example of demonology fascinating, after all, the mainstream religions demonise anything and everything that defies their particular doctrines, so who is to say that she is wrong?
“For centuries on end there have been a lot of misconceptions about demons, how they operate, what they look like and how they treat and interact with human beings.
All of these preconceived notions and ideas that people have about demons and demonology are negative, demons are considered to be evil creatures that work for the Christian devil and that their sole purpose is to tempt people in moral decline forcing or encouraging them to do things that are against God including trying to persuade people to give up on their faith and turn to the devil. There is also a misconception that demons are ordered and required to do this, and that they enjoy possessing people against their will, forcing them to become a sinners and lose their faith in God.
Something else that needs to be borne in mind is that demons can’t possess a human being without that human beings specific consent and agreement, frequently involving some kind of pact, and that it is evil spirits on demos who are responsible.
