Doorways to Demonic Possesion

While I am very grateful to the huffpo for helping propagate this important teaching, I do feel some things are missing from this list,

doorways to demonic possession

not least

  • Reality TV
  • Cooking shows
  • DIY
  • CCM
  • Michael Bolton
  • Shania Twain
  • Square Dancing
  • Blogging
  • Chihuahuas
if, like me you are wondering what "trilateralism" is, don't worry, it is nothing sexual, it is simply "The political and economic policy of encouraging friendly relations among three nations or regions, especially the United States, Western Europe, and Japan, or North America, Europe, and the Pacific Rim." Thanks online dictionary.

Also I think the Twilight films are probably so bad that they would drive even the worst demons away.

OTOH don't think I take evil forces lightly, but I tend to side with the half baked reformer Luther on this one:
Luther loved mocking the devil. He is known for it. Here is one of his most awesome quotes, “ Tell the devil he may kiss my ass.” Or this gem quoted at the beginning of the Screwtape Letters, ““The best way to drive out the devil, if he will not yield to texts of Scripture, is to jeer and flout him, for he cannot bear scorn.”
Luther thought that fear of the Devil equalled devil worship. He believed that if you fear the Devil, you are treating him as God’s equal, deserving of some back handed glory. Luther felt the devil must always be reminded of his place and Luther felt the best way to do that was through scripture and severe mockery.  It’s my opinion he would feel that Christians running away from what scares us would be equal to putting those things in God’s place. Therefore, we actually worship Halloween and death while trying to avoid it. 

In a very real way these silly fundies handing out leaflets with a straight face warning against LOTR seem to be giving more credence and fear to the devil than even those satan worshipping mushroom eating levitating trilateralists do.
