I received a lengthy comment on a blog about Theresa Caputo and her show, and felt a need to respond in a way that is both public and answers many of the same questions/comments I continue to receive about Theresa and psychics/mediums in general.
The following comment was written by "dg" on this post:
eyeontheparanormal , in response to many of your replies to people's comments. i do not think that Teresa Caputo is fake or real, as like in the majority of how i live my life, i believe it when i see it with my own 2 eyes. i just find it amusing how you continue to dismiss the idea of people talking to spirits or people feeling the presence of spirits but yet you not only believe in demons but have actually assisted in Exorcisms. arent demons and spirits essentially the same, just one is good and one is evil? how come for you just because the bible says that once someone dies and goes to heaven, that is it? but yet when someone bad dies and goes to hell it's normal for them to come back to "haunt" people? i don't get the logic there. jesus himself died and rose from the dead, yes he was jesus, but ultimately did he not start out as a human being that people could see, and hear and touch? you talk about the bible so much and how people should follow it pretty much word for word, then why do most people, christians included break almost every commandment? i have a feeling after reading your comments that you must be anti gay too, because it says in the bible that the homosexuals pretty much should not exist, let alone be able to be married. it might only be my opinion but i think that is the best thing that was not followed, that slowly but surely many more states are coming forward allowing same sex marriages, because while too many people are spewing hate against people like mediums or people who can see spirits, letting same sex marriages happen is showing how much they have suffered and have had to wait the longest to do the one thing that EVERYONE in the world should really be concerned with and that is LOVE.
Question #1- Are demons and spirits the same thing?
Demons are the foot soldiers to Lucifer/the devil/Satan. They have never been human beings. No matter how vile a person is in life they don't become a demon in the afterlife. Humans who die and reject God go to hell and suffer the pain of damnation inflicted by demons. They get no pass for past evil deeds for demons hate humans.
Where do demons come from? Depending on who you ask, you'll learn that the angels who fell with Lucifer became demons after the fall. Others will say that the offspring of the giants in Genesis 6 became demons after death. Finally, some will say that Lilith, the first wife of Adam, rejected God and was cursed by God—thus became the mother of all demons.
As to spirits, those don't stay around here on earth. When we die our last breath on earth becomes our next breath in either heaven or hell. We don't see a white light or a tunnel that leads us to heaven as that's new age fallacy. From the Christian perspective, we are on earth and as soon as we die, we are in heaven. On the other hand, if we don't measure up, then the alternative is that we are on earth, we die, and we end up in hell.
Not to say that we might be able to reach loved ones from time to time, usually when there is a great need. But our new home is in either heaven or hell.
Question #2 - Do the dead in hell come back and haunt us? Nope. Demons often will wear the mask of someone who died and went to hell, making us think that it is the person. They can be quite convincing, as they might even sound like them, and demons know many details of various events, character traits, etc. No one should ever mistake a demon as dumb, because they aren't. What demons lack is love and compassion.
Question #3 - Do I hate mediums or those who can see spirits?
When someone speaks out against so-called mediums, I hope they don't hate them. Love the sinner hate the sin. It's when people say we shouldn't judge them. We are not judging the person -- but the sin they take part in.
Both the Old and New Testament indicate that God is concerned about people who speak to the dead. Why? The dead know nothing new, for they are dead. The old gospel song that said "this world is not my home I'm just passing through." is so rich in truth. Our time on earth is limited but our afterlife with God is forever. In heaven, we worship and praise Him. We don't come back here and talk to the likes of Theresa Caputo. If your loved one is saved there is no doubt they are whole and happy on the other side.
Yes, Jesus died and three days later, He rose from the dead to fulfill His promise that by His grace and death He paid the price for us.
Whatever question we may have, whatever problem seems insurmountable…do we think a mortal psychic or a medium can answer or offer consolation better than what God offers?
