Vatican gives thumbs up for exorcist association
Exorcists now have a legal weapon at their disposal.

The Vatican has formally recognized the International Association of Exorcists, a group of 250 priests in 30 countries who liberate the faithful from demons.

The Vatican newspaper L'Osservatore Romano reported Tuesday that the Vatican's Congregation for Clergy had approved the organization's statutes and recognized the group under canon law.

Penny, did you read the very last paragraph of my last comment? Oh, I always welcome prayers, like everyone else I'm certainly not above needing them

Now that I have this URL fixed (I'd better have! or I'm going to be ) I'm going to pass it along to you, Proper Biblical Interpretation. We are suppose to copy Jesus, and if there was one thing that he was -- he was the supreme example of being rational. So, when you have some time read that John MacArthur's sermon, actually it became part of a book, so it's well done.

some serious stuff there Jim, propels me to pray for you more. Rationalism is not Christianity. Christians are a Spirit-filled people in a spiritual battle for the souls of men.

Penny, now, I often leave out modifiers especially negative ones, See the thread on "Pastors You Don't Want for Your Church," Tullian would --not-- agree with MacArthur. So, that was something of a shamble, and I'm glad it got buried fairly early with other comments.

But from the statement you quoted from me, "They should know that the fallacy is not that so-called psychological sciences explains the nonsense of demon possession." I got that one right In fact, we had some "Christian" psychologists speak at IHCC, what'shisname, in fact, Now, I kept my mouth shut, something with age I ignore to my sorrow, well now only somewhat, but I knew Psychotherapy was/is something I reject as even a soft science --it's a religion-- and my church came to same conclusion without my help later. But, if you remember I have a Masters in Psych. from a clinically based school, and so I know of what I speak. I hope I pointed out, demon possession, can only happen to non-Christians! Also what I didn't point out It really was oppressively present when Christ and the apostles were with us, physically.

Manifestations of what passes forit can be explained superficially by Psychology nowadays, but it's still a spiriual problem people who are possessed by Sin

sure, if they just had your freud god there to talk down the crazy man in the cemetary, then Jesus wouldn't have had to call out the demons?

seems you are rejecting the bible again for your religion.

One must be filled with the Holy Spirit to resist the devil.

This is an interesting article on the growing phenomena of exorcism. unfortunately there are some Protestants who are they going about the subject as Catholics. They should know that the fallacy is not that so-called psychological sciences explains the nonsense of demon possession, but the Bible itself points out a Christian can not be demon possessed. Purging daily demons: what’s behind the popularity of exorcisms?

Ephesians 6:13 Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand firm. 14 Stand therefore, having fastened on the belt of truth, and having put on the breastplate of righteousness, 15 and, as shoes for your feet, having put on the readiness given by the gospel of peace. 16 In all circumstances take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming darts of the evil one; 17 and take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God,--ESV

As a continuation I will point out that Jesuits, the more educated group of priests, (of course if they were really educated, they would make the Pilgrimage From Rome which apparently the author of this article hasn't) An Ex-jesuit Priest Documents Five 'shameful, Loathsome' Exorcisms. Unfortunately, this fellow should know anything that has to do with Romish Magisterium is shameful and loathsome. For example, Are Bishops the Only Accurate Interpreters of God's Word? of course that's a rhetorical question.

The t.v. show on tonight you can miss, and of course you can always skip the Romish Church.

I see we're getting some foolish entertainment soon--- A live exorcism will be performed on TV Friday. Here’s what to expect. now the article itself should dissuade you from watching this anti-Christian program. However this servant of the devil who know his master should make you realize how anti-Christian it is, Archdiocese objects to TV exorcism in St. Louis from which,
Pat McGonigle, KSDK wrote:
Bishop Robert Hermann with the Catholic
Archdiocese of St. Louis is deeply concerned.
Bishop Hermann believes any attempt to conjure
up the devil-- even for a TV show-- is a gravely
serious and potentially dangerous stunt!
"It can only be done with the authority of the
Archbishop by someone appointed by the
Archbishop who is the exorcist for the diocese."
Notice the number of Jesuits associated with the original exorcism!

If the exorcists are of any value, perhaps they could liberate the "faithful" from the catholic church.

Vatican the Great City that sits on Seven Mountains…the habitation of devils, and the hold of every foul spirit, and a cage of every unclean and hateful bird.

8:9 But there was a certain man, called Simon, which beforetime in the same city used sorcery, and bewitched the people of Samaria, giving out that himself was some great one:
8:10 To whom they all gave heed, from the least to the greatest, saying, This man is the great power of God.
8:11 And to him they had regard, because that of long time he had bewitched them with sorceries.

Actually, Christ, laity and just importantly priests could need an exorcism, which as far as I know could only be done by Christ and those in the Apostolic Church, Christians have absolutely no need for an exorcist because they are indwelt by the Holy Spirit. Do you think a demon would come along and say to Him, "Hey, move over (or more likely, get out! I'm taking over this guy! It's not going to happen.

So, when it comes to a Catholic priest trying to exorcise a demon from one his delusional flock, it is most certainly a case of the blind leading the blind.

Acts 19
13 But also some of the Jewish exorcists, who went from place to place, attempted to name over those who had the evil spirits the name of the Lord Jesus, saying, "I adjure you by Jesus whom Paul preaches."
14 And seven sons of one Sceva, a Jewish chief priest, were doing this.
15 And the evil spirit answered and said to them, "I recognize Jesus, and I know about Paul, but who are you?"
16 And the man, in whom was the evil spirit, leaped on them and subdued all of them and overpowered them, so that they fled out of that house naked and wounded.---NASB

Unfortunately, with priests demons recognize they serve the same master, and so won't beat them up

Good posts, Jim. I was just wondering this morning about Roman Catholic exorcisms. I wonder if, unbeknownst to the church, it's all a clever ruse. What I'm getting at is that I wonder if the demons only appear to be fearful, obey, and come out when exorcised as part of the deception. The illusion continues if the demons appear to be under the authority and control of the church, confirming that it must be the one true church if even hell is under their command. I hope I made sense. Just seems like it might be a dog and pony show that Satan puts on to give the church the appearance of power and mislead the faithful deceived; keeping them deceived.

American Tract Dictionary 1859 wrote:
From a Greek word signifying to conjure, to use the name of God or certain magical ceremonies with design to expel devils from places or bodies which they possess. The apostles were enabled to cast out evil spirits in Christ’s name, Mt 10:1 Mr 16:17 Lu 10:17; and designing men, both before and after the Savior’s death, pretended to exercise the same power, Mt 12:27 Mr 9:38 Lu 9:49,50 Ac 19:13-17. Exorcists were thought to have gained this power by secret studies respecting the nature of demons, and the powers of certain herbs, drugs, and stones, and were accustomed to use various forms of adjuration and incantation in their unlawful art; but the whole was delusion and imposture, and strictly forbidden.
