I’ve wanted to know the answer to this question for years. And finally, the Christian media satisfies my curiosity with some terrific investigative journalism!
Can You Be Raped by the Devil?
The two most identifiable sexual demons are the incubus, which is a male sexual demon that traditionally assaults women, and the succubus, which is a female sexual demon that assaults men. Sometimes they also lure people into homosexual behavior.
[Contessa] Adams notes that one evangelist, whose name she would not divulge, was so troubled by the sexual pleasure the succubus gave her that she even contemplated suicide.
Adams says the succubus spirit that used to attack her confused her so much that she contemplated becoming a lesbian.
“Unless you’re strong enough to rebuke it, they’ll keep coming back,” she says. “You must speak the Word of God, knowing you have power in the name of Jesus.”
But how do we fix this problem? Simple: Dust, vacuum, and mop your house:
[U.S. Prayer Track president Eddie] Adams believes the most valuable tool against these sexual demons is based on Matthew 12:44, which speaks of when a demon is cast out and then looks to return, but finds the house is clean, swept and in order. People must have their houses in order so that a demon can no longer gain entrance, Adams says. It is a part of the reprogramming process that takes place when an individual submits his or her life to God.
I realize that Charisma represents the crazier side of the Christian spectrum, but when it comes to the existence of things like demons and Satan and his attempts to lure you into sin, it’s not just the radicals who buy into them. Those are almost universally accepted concepts in the Christian world.
It’s just a hell of a lot more fun to see the obvious lunacy put on full display on Charisma‘s website.
