Demons that can take possession of a person and destroy him
There are a number of things that can take possession of a person and cause him endless amounts of trouble and misery. They will mess up his mind, destroy his judgment, destroy him morally and spiritually, hang on like a demon from hell, be very difficult to get rid of. They represent snares; traps that, once in, are very hard to get out of. One become slaves to them. You serve them whether you want to or not. They defy will power. They will drag you down, destroy you. Let us name some of them:
● drugs (e.g. heroin addiction)
● alcohol (e.g. alcohol addiction, skid row)
We can view the above as habits, mental patterns, dangerous villains that can colonize a person, take possession of him, and cause him endless trouble. For example, we can view inner anger as something that colonizes a person, takes control of him. We can view lust as something that colonizes a person. Then once something colonizes you, it starts doing its thing, doing all kinds of mischief, affecting all aspects of your personality and way of thinking and acting.
How important to you is your mental health? Your common sense and good judgment? Your calm, well-balanced, properly functioning mind? Your happiness? The above listed represent dangerous quagmires that a prudent person stays clear of. They all represent deeply entrenched mental patterns, mental habits, habitual ways of responding to situations and life. All are deeply involved with feeling and emotion and many of them with ego. They represent thought and feeling patterns that are very complicated and poorly understood. Underneath many lie hidden assumptions, usually false assumptions. What is the secret to avoiding them? The right attitudes, outlooks, and values. The right priorities. The right mental habits. The right kind of personal discipline. Where do you find these right attitudes, values, priorities, etc.? Look to the teachings of Christianity for this.
