Hi E. A. and everyone,
I’m curious if you, E. A. think Demons are real? When I say real, I mean not just a part of ourselves or our unconscious or something like that. In other words are they a real entity that exists separate from ourselves.
Personally I get a feeling that they are.
I’ve also looked through a little bit of Michael W. Ford’s material on Luciferianism and he takes the stance that they are more representative and not real.
He also suggests that even if they were real we should not believe that they have any effect of our lives so that we maintain all of the power.
This does not sit quite right with me.
So, I’d love to know your take on this. I’d like to hear from others as well that have encountered this philosophy to see what your take is on it.
Even as I read over this, the question seems very basic, but it is a question I have wrestled with for some time and figured I would reach out here to understand better.
As this question relates to other things like Santeria, to me, those spirits are very real. So it makes sense to me that Demons are as well. Yet when seeing the opinion of Ford, it makes me wonder a little.
