Common Demon and Angel Myths (Part 1)


By Lisa Grace

All beliefs held by the author are from a Holy Scripture (Bible) point of view as it is the ultimate authority on how the supernatural world works.

1. The one that bothers me the most is when people pray to angels. Nowhere in the Holy Scriptures does it say we should pray to anyone other than God. There are many Biblical proofs for the triune aspect of God. Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. We commonly pray the "Lords' Prayer" (Matthew 6:9, Luke 11:2),  Jesus also says to pray in His name: John 14:13, John 15:16, John 16:23 & 26)

We are not to pray to angels or any man, which is a violation of the Ten Commandments (Exodus 20:2 - 20:5). When I hear people praying to anyone other than the Father, Son or Holy Spirit, it breaks my heart. We have no need of intercessors, and elevates these intercessors to the level of God, the only one worthy of prayer.

We can ask God to send His angels, but there is no need reason to pray to them. They follow His command only.

2. Demons and angels cannot be killed. In cases of "hauntings" or possession, we can ask/force them to move on. But not everyone can. Only those who believe and meet certain requirements can drive out demons. With many of the movies coming out lately, it may lead you to believe they can be destroyed, by man, but they can't. (1 Cor 6:3, Rev 19:20, Rev 20).

The Holy Bible is not "The Ultimate Authority on the Supernatural."

It's a book of urban legends.

Have you ever read the Qur'an? Or other holy books?

Yes, I've read several so called holy books from different religions. The only one I've found to be correct is what we call the Holy Scriptures.
See: http://www.truthnet.org/Bible-Origins/5_Old-Testament-Books/

The Holy Scriptures in written form existed over 600 years before the Qur'an.
Quote from PBS.org
"Muslims view the Qur'an as a divine scripture revealed by God in the same way that many Christians and Jews view their scriptures. The Arabic word "Qur'an" means "the Recitations" or "the Revelations." It is a collection of the revelations that Muslims believe Muhammad received, starting in 610 when he was 40 years old. According to its own message, the Qur'an does not establish a new religion. Instead, it confirms and clarifies the truth of the original monotheism of Abraham, the focus of the Torah and Gospels."

Mohammed went to the cave of Hira known to be inhabited by demons and that's where he heard it.

The way the Qur'an works is later passages supplant previous ones.
The passages quoted early in the book Qur'an, embrace peace, and the later passages embrace holy war against infidels.

I've spent years studying different religions' take on God.
