    Why are people who say they are Christian so superstitious when it involves demons, devils, and satanic adversaries that are actually idols and thoughts in the heart of evil thinking men?

    Pretty simple.... How much the Lord is reflected in your words and deeds is tied directly to how real you believe Him to be. When we have people claiming to be Christian who use mediums, or who say they trust God but then won't walk under a ladder (and so forth).... then how deep does their belief really go?

    I didn't take the post the way you did. I was thinking they react to them superstitiously rather than boldly in faith.

    Yep. When folks start talking about "exorcising" the demons out of your house or other inanimate objects, they're doing nothing but practicing medieval superstition.

    In addition, folks claiming that brain diseases and other mental illnesses are mostly caused by demon possession or attacks are also being superstitious.

    Acts 19:13 Then certain of the vagabond Jews , EXORCISTS, took upon them which had evil spirits, the name of the Lord Jesus saying, we adjure you by Jesus whom Paul preaches..15 And the evil spirit answers and said , Jesus I know and Paul I know but who are you? 16 and they fled out of that house naked and wounded....
    Please know that no one has the power to exrcise evil but the Lord. Pray to him not to your preacher or anyone else. For God commanded Micah 5:12 ...no more witchcrafts or soothsayers...

    A "spell" or a "curse" is nothing more than a form of prayer or wishful thinking.

    Some folks just love chasing the dark (with the claim of being a "warrior of Christ") instead of living in the light.

    In biblical times it was believed that most, if not all, disease was caused by demonic possession or evil spirits. Modern medicine has discovered the true nature of most diseases and in many cases a cure as well.

    Exactly. That is why in the light of modern advances, these beliefs are merely nothing but superstitions nowadays.

    I would disagree unless this just proves to be semantics, Jack. The two great commands sum all the commandments up... we are to love God and love neighbor. Yeshua showed the depth of loving neighbor when he told us to love even our enemies. If we, then, are seeking to place a curse on another or cast a spell on another... that goes well outside of the realm of loving neighbor and doesn't just break that one command... it really breaks them all because on those two hang all the law and prophets. So a Christian should NEVER seek to cast a spell or place a curse on another because it isn't from a position of love... or mercy.

    I think Paul said it best:

    For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.

    I think ladders, mirrors, etc. have as much power as water does in a baptism. None.

    Physical things have no spiritual power. Superstition is just misplaced faith, not of the Father. Ignorance of Truth.

    They didn't know the lord and were not known of the lord

    Anyone who thinks there isn't a spiritual battle is also deceived

    Who do you think Jesus was saying wanted to sift Peter?

    An imaginary adversary?

    I agreee with you

    Some of these don't come out except by prayer

    Just as the lord Jesus told his disciples when they couldn't remove the evil spirit in the man's boys

    Those under the protection of the name are under the protection
    of the lord Jesus Christ and the power of his name And satan has no power over those who are in Christ Jesus

    For greater is He who is in us than he who is in the world

    Satan can't cast out God's Holy Spirit

    Paul must have imagined his @Thorn" then.

    Though he learned to be content in all things understanding that Christ's grace was sufficient to him

    sometimes we think we have to work harder when all we really have to do is rest in god's sovereignty in all things
