    I have a problem with that second part, because if that were the case then people wouldn't get tortured til they die, or they wouldn't commit suicide.

    Some things are meant to happen and we cannot change them. Some things are planned by God in advance. For suicide, people have a way out they need to be open and willing to communicate plus a believer in Jesus Christ who will empower someone to deal with their struggle.

    This idea that there is a demon or demons for specific sins I have no idea where this came from. I think people like to think that someone else MADE them do their sin and not themselves which in our hearts is where sin originates.

    I think the name it and claim it preachers came up with this one.

    Christians are extra dense in dealing with any mental illness. The church has failed this group of people.

    First Herber was science fiction writer, and I thought a book list was a list of books, not a theological treatise.

    Rather a sweeping statement. I have several books in my library that deal with mental illness written by Christian psychologists and psychiatrists.

    Your dates are bit pointless because the common era did not exist in those days.

    "Herber Book List" is the name of the user who posted that. I didnt put it in a quote box in case you wanted to address specific parts.

    And just what do you think "common era" means?

    The burden of proof rests on the one making the claim, you're shifting the burden of proof.

    Well, none of those questions either prove that the question is abused, nor do they indicate that my asking it in this circumstance was abuse. Furthermore, when someone asks a question like the OP's, that's usually an indicator that they lack the discernment that you mention. If they had the discernment, they wouldn't need to ask.

    It is irrelevant what I think it means. Until the atheists got hold of it, it was alway B.C. before Christ and A.D. Anno Domini, in the year of our Lord. I will stick with that as I have no intention of giving atheists leverage.

    So, no, you can't prove there isn't.

    It is safe to assume that they might have certain aberrant predispositions just as evil humans have.

    Strawman argument and logical fallacy, you're shifting the burden of proof again. But I'll bite. There is nothing, either in the Bible or in psychology, to indicate there's a demon for every sin or whatever. And as far as I know there's not even any religious research indicating that wither. In fact a lot of things once attributed to demons (seizures, manic episodes, etc.) we now know as medical conditions, mental disorders, or basic psychology, no demons involved.

    Working at the behest of Pope John I Dionysius Exigius (aka Dennis the Short), a Russian monk, devised the official Christmas calendar in the year 527 CE (or AD 527). He used the BC and AD system around the birth of Jesus and he arbitrarily chose December 25 in AD 1 as that date. Keep in mind the use of the digit "0" was still several centuries in the future. His calendar had a number of errors a few of which were tidied up by Pope Gregory in 1582.

    So no, it was not "always" as you think. It was a human invention. However, thanks to colonialism this calendar is now used worldwide. But less than half the world is Christian, so some historians now use CE (Common Era) and BCE (Before Common Era) in order to get around the Christian bias. It has nothing whatsoever to do with atheism,

    So, now that you understand some of the historical background you can see that it is no big deal.

    The Bible. Demons are not called out by the apostles. The apostles tell us to flee from sin that begins in the heart.

    Your source for demons for everything.

    So you have nothing. That's what I thought.

    If that is the best thought you can come up with better give thinking a miss.
