In this time of great wickedness, it is becoming increasingly difficult to determine if someone is demon possessed or if they are deluded by God.
The proper diagnosis is crucial because we need to determine if a reprobate needs an exorcism or intense biblical education. Exorcisms can be difficult and dangerous whereas proper biblical instruction is calm and reserved.
When we share the Gospel, we need to know who we are dealing with. If we are dealing with a common reprobate, we can rely on II Timothy 3:16-17 which states,
“All Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete, equipped for every good work.
Offering correction, reproof and training only works on people who are in possession of their faculties.
However, if we are dealing with someone who is demon possessed, then the stakes get much higher. We may find ourselves confronted by an Acts 19:13-16 type demon.
The last thing any of us want is for this person to overpower our witnessing group, beat us senseless, and then force us to run out of the house naked and bleeding.
In Psychology, having the right diagnosis of a severe mental problem is crucial to its proper treatment. If someone is showing symptoms of delusion, we may be deceived into offering a diagnosis of, for instance, schizophrenia.
If someone is experiencing delusions of grandeur or the inability to reason properly, we may be tempted to see this as confirmation of our diagnosis.
However, people who experience delusional thinking may not be suffering from a mental disorder at all. Perhaps this person is addicted to methamphetamines, or under the influence of Bath Salts, that are impairing his ability to reason, and causing him to show signs of extreme hallucinatory behavior.
There was a man in Miami who was addicted to Bath Salts who began to show zombie-like symptoms. He actually attacked another man by biting off parts of his face, leaving him in critical condition.
This event was almost as horrifying as a pro-Hamas student protest at any one of our major universities.
This begs the question, is the zombie on Bath Salts, or the pro-Hamas student, demon possessed or are they just deluded morons (those who are deluded by God).
The point is, when symptoms match more than one condition additional tests may be necessary before making an accurate assessment. We call this a ‘differential diagnosis.’ Since there are a lot of possible conditions that share similar symptoms, we need to develop a test that will help us to pin down a correct diagnosis.
When we read articles, such as those that appear routinely on an MSNBC website, we are tempted to believe that the writers of these articles are merely deluded morons. That may not be the case.
How do we know they are not demon possessed?
It is possible that they are merely evil sociopaths and are trying to inculcate society with a sick ideology to further break it down. On the other hand, perhaps they are simply being paid by the evil Globalists and do not believe what they are writing.
Or they could be possessed by a demon and are not in control of the irrational nonsense that they defend so vigorously.
No one in their right mind can defend Hamas and yet their numbers appear to be greater than those who defend Israel.
People who choose savagery over civilization need to be examined more closely.
There are plenty of tests to determine a person’s psychological state but there is not one to assess one’s spiritual condition. I have attempted to develop an instrument that would serve this purpose but it is still being tested.
This instrument was called the ‘Kansas Multiphasic Reprobate Identifier’ and can be found in my article ‘Examine Yourselves.’
However, we need to work more diligently to develop a spiritual evaluation to help us determine the proper diagnosis for those who have taken leave of their senses.
We must endeavor to determine if someone can be helped with education due to the fact that they are ignorant or if something deeper is going on. Are we simply dealing with a hardened heart or is this person in need of an exorcism?
Have they been ‘turned over’ to a reprobate mind or is there something even more dire occurring?
To begin, we need to determine what the criteria are for being a deluded moron vs. being demon possessed.
Let us begin with the criteria for being a deluded moron:
1. Develops an alien terminology: Uses nonsensical terms such as racism, sexism, white privilege, homophobia, Islamaphobia, patriarchy, misogyny, transgenderism, Diversity/ Equity/ Inclusion, Sustainable Development and climate change.
2. Delusions of Grandeur: Believes that he has the ability to alter the climate simply by living his life.
3. Delusions of Persecution: Easily offended when someone disagrees with his point of view, visceral reaction if anyone dares to assert God’s law.
4. Magical Thinking: Believes that he can change his sex simply by asserting he is the opposite sex and changing his outward appearance.
5. Dyslogia: Believes that cow flatulence is destroying the earth, uses meaningless terminology as stated in (1), easily frustrated when proven wrong which leads to an acute inability to express himself intelligently.
Those who exhibit these symptoms oftentimes are not susceptible to correction. They are usually impossible to reason with, and they have no interest in changing their thoughts or behavior.
In fact, those who exhibit these symptoms seem to be giddy, as if they are inebriated or high on illegal substances.
They argue vociferously as if their entire being is dependent upon their ability to believe and defend insanity. The pleasure centers of their brains are clearly being activated when they spout mindless stupidity.
Regarding demon possession, it is difficult to find criteria for those who are under otherworldly control so we will have to rely on the movie ‘The Exorcist’ to make this determination.
The criteria that we will adopt for someone who is demon possessed is the following:
1. Hostile reaction to the Gospel, prayer and Christian symbols.
2. Contorted facial expressions when confronted with truth.
3. Involved in the occult (or cultlike beliefs)
4. Imitates the gift of tongues (where an actual foreign language is spoken)
5. Tourette’s Syndrome (cursing when confronted with righteousness)
6. Violent acting out due to inability to reason.
7. Projectile vomiting (or any secretion from the oral cavity).
8. A supernatural ability such as the ability to rotate one’s head 360 degrees.
The first thing we should notice about these criteria is they are strongly correlated with the conditions for being a deluded moron.
To find our examples of potential demonic possession, all we need to do is visit MSNBC’s or Yahoo’s news websites. The articles that we find on these websites are truly frightening. Those Christians who read them are filled with a sense of dread that there are people who really do call good evil and evil good.
We see all the attributes that these people are deluded morons but there seems to be a darker force at work in their thinking. We cannot shake the feeling that, if they ever have free reign to act on their will, we will begin to see the attributes of demonic possession.
And the violence and evil that accompanies it.
It is not hard to find atheists who have adverse reactions to Christian symbols or scream in agony when Christians speak. They demonstrate contorted facial expressions, zealously express their allegiance to the climate, race or sex cult, and often speak unintelligibly.
A Hamas supporter could walk among a Pro-Israel gathering and would be treated fairly respectably. The pro-Israel side would actually attempt to reason with this person. On the other hand, a Pro-Israel protester would be lucky to get out alive among a group of Hamas supporters.
That fact alone should tell us who the reasonable people are.
Such people are no stranger to cursing and act out violently should someone dare to say something they disagree with. They do not engage in projectile vomiting yet but they can spit with the best of them, especially their women.
The only attribute we have not seen is their ability to rotate their heads 360 degrees. However, when they do begin to exhibit supernatural abilities, we will know that they have transitioned from evildoer to demon possessed.
When we bring up the concept of abortion and its immorality, the heathen immediately begin to convulse wildly. They are so outraged that anyone would tell them they do not have God’s permission to kill unborn children that they descend into irrational, uncontrollable rage.
Is this because they are demonic or deluded morons?
The heathen claim to put their faith in science but it is clear that they do not know what this word means. They seem to think it means whatever left wing kooks say it means. They then patiently wait for said kooks to intimidate society into believing their narrative. They are then able to develop a ‘truth’ apart from reality which is that the child is simply a diseased part of a woman’s body.
The truth that they should glean is that life begins at conception.
In order for something to be considered scientific, it must be observable and repeatable under laboratory conditions. For instance, the law of gravity is scientific. Every time I drop a pencil, it is going to land on the floor. This is observable and happens every time it is tried.
When we consider life, we find that it can only occur at conception. Every time sperm fertilizes an ovum, life is the result. It is as certain as the law of gravity.
Unfortunately, the heathen have the same approach to science that they have to the law. If they disagree with it, they ignore it. The question is, is this demonic or are they simply deluded morons who refuse to admit they are wrong.
At this point, evidence seems to indicate that they are deluded morons.
However, their arguments then take a strange turn when they are defeated by reason. They immediately move to attack the Christian faith because it is Christians who seem primarily concerned with this particular sin.
This sounds like something Satan would do.
When they lose a scientific argument, they quickly move the goal posts and lament that Christians use a 2,000-year-old text to defend their pro-choice position. They lose interest in science when they are proven wrong and instead attempt to engage us in a theological debate.
The problem is that the Bible has a great deal to say about abortion and the sanctity of life. One of God’s first laws was that we be fruitful and multiply and fill the earth.
That is hard to do when our children are terminating their pregnancies because a baby does not fit into their current lifestyle. They ignore the law of God because it is inconvenient, and they do not wish to take responsibility for their fornication.
If life begins at conception, then terminating a life under this condition is similar to murder. God was clear that whoever sheds the blood of man, by man shall his blood be shed, for in the image of God has God made man.
We also know that among the six things the Lord hates are hands that shed innocent blood. There is no more innocent blood than that of a child gestating in the womb.
That means God hates the hands of the abortionist.
Yes, they will say. But if two men who are fighting hit a woman and she gives birth prematurely (or has a miscarriage), there is only a fine involved if the child dies.
The problem with this example is that the heathen do not wish to define abortion properly.
Abortion is defined as the terminating of the life of an unborn child for the convenience of those who fornicate. This definition has nothing to do with two men fighting and causing an accidental death.
It has much more in common with those who, in ancient times, sacrificed their children to Molech. In this instance, the law of God is clear.
“Any Israelite or any alien living in Israel who gives any of his children to Molech must be put to death. The people of the community are to stone him. I will set my face against that man and I will cut him off from his people; for by giving his children to Molech, he has defiled my sanctuary and profaned my holy name.”
“If the people of the community close their eyes when the man gives one of his children to Molech and they fail to put him to death, I will set my face against that man and his family and will cut off from their people both him and all who follow him in prostituting themselves to Molech (Leviticus 20:2-3).”
I wonder how this is going to work out for the reprobates in Ohio who voted to enshrine abortion in their constitution. If we reap what we sow, I guess a lot of these people are going to be ‘aborted’ since they ‘closed their eyes’ to the evil of abortion.
But we are not the ancient theocracy of Israel and this law does not apply to us one might say. However, we are in the church age and the church is indwelt by the Holy Spirit of God. That means we must stand against any theology that states killing an unborn child for the convenience of sexually irresponsible people is acceptable.
The times of ignorance God overlooked, but now he commands all people everywhere to repent, because he has fixed a day on which he will judge the world in righteousness by a man whom he has appointed; and of this he has given assurance to all by raising him from the dead (Acts 17:30,31).
But abortion has more to do with idolatry than killing an unborn child. There is little difference between the two. People sacrificed their newborn children to Molech to receive his blessings and have a better life. Today, we kill our unborn children, as well as those who are emerging from the womb, to avoid taking responsibility for our sins so we can have a less cumbersome life.
The end result of each is too similar to ignore.
The heathen, many of whom hold ‘Divinity’ degrees from our elite universities, then harken back to such luminaries as the second century Greek physician Soranus. They reason that if the ancients did it, and the Bible did not address it directly, then God certainly had no problem with the practice.
Soranus recommended ways of ending one’s pregnancy by fasting, bloodletting, vigorous jumping and carrying heavy loads.
Divinity degree holding heathen point out that abortion was practiced among the various pagan societies. Therefore, they reason, since the term ‘abortion’ does not appear in the biblical texts that were written during the same time period, Christians have no reason to object to this practice.
Following this inane logic, the bible does not mention the Trinity, racism, climate change or transgenderism so Christians cannot address these issues either.
The heathen gloss over such texts as the fact that man is made in the image of God and the fact that God knits us together in our mother’s womb. Also, some of the prophets and Paul were called to serve the Lord while still in their mother’s womb.
And let’s not forget about that incident when Mary, the mother of Jesus, visited Elizabeth and her child ‘leaped in her womb.’ One might assume that this leap was for joy. A strange emotion for a blob of cells.
At this point, the heathen are left grasping at straws. Their next play is to begin to warp Scripture until it conforms to their worldly demands. They point to biblical texts that allegedly ‘celebrate the choices that women make with their bodies.’
One such example is the woman who had been bleeding for twelve years. She reaches out and touches Jesus’ cloak in hopes of being healed even though this was a violation of Old Testament law.
This incident has no relationship to abortion but, in the mind of the Divinity degree holding heathen, it shows that women no longer need to observe social taboos. They can now, according to their logic, engage in any kind of behavior they choose because God now recognizes that a woman can do whatever she wants with her body.
Of course, this nonsense falls apart also when we consider that the body is the temple of the Lord. Paul is clear on this point:
18 Flee from sexual immorality. Every other sin a person commits is outside the body, but the sexually immoral person sins against his own body. 19 Or do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit within you, whom you have from God? You are not your own, 20 for you were bought with a price. So glorify God in your body (I Corinthians 6:18-20).
What kind of person, who has read the word of God, would argue that it is permissible to kill an unborn child for the convenience of fornicators? The body is a temple of the Holy Spirit. Any woman who thinks she can do whatever she wants with her body has now transitioned from sinner to evildoer.
The Christian is not skewing the texts to support his position, the texts are clear and they refute every argument of the heathen.
The problem is that these arguments are typically made by a people who claim to have read and understood the bible. They do this with the full knowledge that they are on the side of wickedness and in rebellion against God.
That sounds an awful like Satan. They violently reject the truths of God.
42 Jesus said to them, “If God were your Father, you would love me, for I came from God and I am here. I came not of my own accord, but he sent me. 43 Why do you not understand what I say (John 8:42-43)?
It is because you cannot bear to hear my word.
44 You are of your father the devil, and your will is to do your father's desires.
He was a murderer from the beginning, and does not stand in the truth, because there is no truth in him (John 8:44).
When he lies, he speaks out of his own character, for he is a liar and the father of lies.
45 But because I tell the truth, you do not believe me. 46 Which one of you convicts me of sin? If I tell the truth, why do you not believe me? 47 Whoever is of God hears the words of God. The reason why you do not hear them is that you are not of God.” (John 8:42-47).
The truth is that life begins at conception. Those who state otherwise are suppressing the truth in their wickedness.
When we consider the question of abortion, it should always be done in the context of examining when it is appropriate to end the life of a child.
The factors that go into a typical modern-day abortion are as follows:
1. Ending the life of a child
2. Due to an act of fornication
3. To avoid being inconvenienced
4. To avoid taking responsibility for sin
In my estimation, this definition comprises over 90% of abortions that occur worldwide.
When we consider the question of a child conceived by rape, it is still the ending of a human life. As a matter of law, legislators can take into consideration the weakness of someone who does not desire to raise the child of a rapist and pass laws accordingly.
There is such a thing as adoption.
There are numerous other options other than ending the life of the child and these need to be taken into consideration.
In the extremely rare instances when the mother’s life is in danger due to pregnancy, then the mother should have the authority to decide if she wants to risk carrying the child to term.
This is a somber decision and not one to be taken lightly.
So when it comes to the subject of abortion, are we dealing with deluded morons or demon possessed people? The answer seems to be ‘both.’
There are those, especially among the celebrity class, who take joy in the killing of their offspring and are not shy about letting us know about it.
We need to take into consideration that they are demon possessed.
They have hardened their hearts to such a degree that they have been completely abandoned by God. Therefore, they are of their father the devil.
Fortunately, whether one is demon possessed or simply a deluded moron, we have a simple approach to either condition. We always begin with the call for repentance and the proclamation that Christ died for our sins.
This makes both the demon possessed and the deluded moron convulse in pain and anger. Although it is frightening to witness, that is our calling.
The fact that so few people are obeying the Gospel is the reason that deluded morons and the demonic are becoming the majority of our population.
If most of our churches and Christians in general continue to fail in their obligation to call sinners to repent, things are only going to get uglier.
Even our favorite politicians will have to fall in line with the heathen if they want to get reelected.
Judgment begins in the house of God. As faithful churches die off, evil abounds. If we want to see a positive change, do not look to our politicians.
