Quoting Quiverfull: Goodwill Sweaters Have Demons?

Quoting Quiverfull: Goodwill Sweaters Have Demons? February 27, 2013

by Pat Robertson on Monday, February 25, 2013 on The 700 Club – Video at link

Robertson was answering a question from viewer Carrie, who wrote:

“I buy a lot of clothes and other items at Goodwill and other secondhand shops. Recently my mom told me that I need to pray over the items, bind familiar spirits and bless the items before I bring them into the house. Is my mother correct? Can demons attach themselves to material items?”

Robertson answered Carrie’s question with a story about a girl who was troubled by a ring that had been prayed over by a witch. “She had to buy it and all hell broke loose because she finally recognized what it was,” Robertson said, before claiming that demonic spirits can certainly attach themselves to objects.

Now, does this mean all second-hand clothing is a vessel of the devil? Not exactly, according to Robertson, but “it ain’t going to hurt anything to rebuke any spirits that happened to have attached themselves to those clothes.”
