Discerning the spirits : Comments

By Peter Sellick, published 12/8/2021

The medieval picture of the world seems true in our time long after we have ceased to believe in the supernatural; the world is inhabited by a multitude of demons.

First of all, Paul was a self-confessed homosexual. And persecuted by both the Romans and the Jews. And only found sanctuary inside esoteric Christianity. And given belief at that time, would have considered his "normal" desires the fruit of the devil? And normal God-given sexuality some sort of evil?

Every human extant on the planet remains a sexually-oriented human being with sexual desires and functions, right up until the day before he or she dies!

Normal healthy sex is not a sin. neither is normal sexual desire. And our God-given sexual bias is developed in the womb and not as some chosen aberration.

As for spirits/Ghosts, seen some that gave me some comfort and reinforced a belief in life after death.

And to that end, all anyone can do, is try to be a decent caring human and treat all others as we would be treated.

At the conclusion of life, it's what is in your heart that really matters not the mistakes/sins you made through this journey we call life!

Thank you Peter - amazing depth, may the Holy Spirit be with you!
I wonder how many of the readers can actually understand this article, it is worth reading again and again.

Just one reservation: it is improper for such a high-level spiritual article to stoop down into naming and shaming individuals, even if they are/were politicians.

One of Peter Sellicks better articles.

Itís hard to deny we are wedged between the forces of good and evil in our daily lives, a theological view such as this article highlights on the influences of good and evil spirits as a cause, makes sense.

A modern day diagnosis of this phenomena is to seperate people into personality types.
Judas would qualify for an award as a greedy capitalist.

And what particular evil spirit guides our politicians who happily preside over the scorched earth of an out of control housing market bubble, happy to witness the great divide between haves and have nots, widened into a yawning gap which is very suitable to their personal property portfolios.

There is definitely a good reason for the movement of the Holy Spirit In Canberra.

Speaking of "unclean" spirits self-serving mental fabrications and even radical evil the essay I referred to yesterday is totally saturated with such: http://religiondispatches.org/important-developments-weve-been-missing-about-todays-christian-nationalism

Put in another way there is obviously a complete absence of "love-joy-peace-patience-kindness-generosity- (real) faithfulness- gentleness and (real) self-control" to be found anywhere in the forums that the above essay describes and points to.

Some/many of the key-note speakers are obviously dangerously psychotic. three of the most famous are Reed, Metaxas andD'Souza

Eventually, all the self-serving tribalistic and cultic gods that human beings invent become monsters, diseases, a fantasy of body-parts and everything. Pieces of mind (or unclean) mental constructs are all that moves in "heaven". Even all of human experiencing is merely an iconic procession of (unclean) mental constructs in the room of mind.
