    Rome opens up exorcism course to all major Christian faiths to fight rising demonic forces

    For the first time in 14 years, the Roman Catholic Church has opened up its annual exorcism class in Rome to all major Christian faiths in a bid to stem the rising tide of demonic forces around the world.
    “The idea is to help each other, to establish best practices if you will,” Father Pedro Barrajon, 61, one of the organizers of the 14th edition of the “Course on Exorcism and Prayer of Liberation,” taking place at the Pontifical University of Regina Apostolorum, told the Telegraph. “This is the first time that different denominations have come together to compare their experiences on exorcisms.”
    The one week course which is taught in Italian at a cost of approximately $450 is being held May 6- 11.
    It is described as the first course in the world that proposes careful academic and interdisciplinary research of exorcisms.
    “Expelling the devil goes back to the earliest origins of the Christian Church,” Barrajon said. “The Catholic rite is very structured, whereas some of the other churches are more creative, they don't use a precise format.”  
    More than 241 people, both lay and religious, from more than 40 countries signed up for the course this year, Crux Now reported.
    “I'm here to understand the Catholic perspective. We are fighting the same enemy in the name of the Lord, even if there are some parts of the Anglican Church that have lost belief in Satan,” course participant Benjamin McEntire, a Protestant priest from Alaska, said.
    They all agree that growing secularization has led to a proliferation of satanic groups, especially among young people through social media.
    “Many young people display a certain attraction and interest toward themes tied to esotericism, magic, the occult, Satanism, witchcraft, vampirism and contact with a presumed supernatural world,” Italian Professor Giuseppe Ferrari, founder and secretary of the “Social and Religious Research and Information Group,” said during his introductory speech at the event.

    A Message from Dallas Theological Seminary
    Latest Trends to Hiring a Pastor
    A generation ago there were just a handful of “slots” to fill in local church ministry staffs. A senior pastor, worship pastor, youth pastor, and maybe a pastor of adult education completed a staff...

    “Some end up accepting as spiritual leaders these characters who, while proposing a flawed liberty and false freedom, only aim at taking hold of their existence,” he explained.
    While critics of the course have argued that the study of exorcism has no place in modern society, organizers of the event have emphasized a multidisciplinary approach to exorcism that tackles psychology, medicine, law, sociology and criminology in order to help students better understand the changing dynamics and reality of Satanism.
    “This view [that exorcisms has no place in modern society] not only displays ignorance and a restricted view of reality, but underlines the conditioning by ideologies that tag as superstition everything that eludes their preconstructed schemes,” Ferrari said of critics.
    Indeed, a report in The Christian Post last fall highlighted the astronomical growth of self-identified witches in the U.S.
    Ahead of the first annual Christian witches convention in Salem, Massachusetts, in April, internationally recognized Prophet Calvin Witcher argued that Jesus was a sorcerer and the Bible is really a “book of magic.”
    “Some believe that this return to exorcism and prayer of liberation is derived from a distancing from God,” Barrajon told journalists.
    Ferrari explained that efforts are now underway to assess the number of exorcists in the United States, Canada, England, Ireland, Italy, Spain and Switzerland and monitor the number of requests they receive for exorcisms and prayers of liberation.
    “We don’t yet have a reliable number,” he said but he believes that many people who believe they are demon possessed may also be suffering from psychological issues.

  • Below is an exorcism account from 1800's. This exorcism is relevant because of the involvement of Protestant ministers and the devil telling the Protestant ministers that they are in league with him, and do his work.

     The Exorcism of Nicola Aubrey 


    Excerpt

    As the strange circumstances of Nicola's possession became known everywhere, several Calvinist preachers came with their followers, to "expose this popish cheat," as they said. On their entrance, the devil saluted them mockingly, called them by name, and told them that they had come in obedience to him. One of the preachers took his Protestant prayer-book, and began to read it with a very solemn face. The devil laughed at him, and, putting on a most comical look, he said: "Ho! Ho! My good friend; do you intend to expel me with your prayers and hymns? Do you think that they will cause me any pain? Don't you know that they are mine? I helped to compose them!" 

     

    "I will expel thee in the name of God," said the preacher, solemnly.

     

    "You!" said the devil, mockingly. "You will not expel me either in the name of God, or in the name of the devil. Did you ever hear of one devil driving out another?" 

     

    "I am not a devil," said the preacher, angrily, "I am a servant of Christ."

     

    "A servant of Christ, indeed!" said Satan, with a sneer. "What! I tell you are worse than I am. I believe, and you do not want to believe. Do you suppose that you can expel me from the body of this miserable wretch? Ha! Go first and expel all the devils that are in your own heart!"

     

    The preacher took his leave, somewhat discomfited. On going away, he said, turning up the whites of his eyes, "O Lord, I pray thee, assist this poor creature!"

     

    "And I pray Lucifer," cried the evil spirit, "that he may never leave you, but may always keep you firmly in his power, as he does now. Go about your business, now. You are all mine, and I am your master."

  • The Vatican II church and Protestant churchmen, just the same dung in different packaging.

    "If I could only make the faithful sing the Kyrie, the Gloria, the Credo, the Sanctus and the Agnus Dei ... that would be to me the finest triumph sacred music could have, for it is in really taking part in the liturgy that the faithful will preserve their devotion. I would take the Tantum ...

  • The Novus Ordo church is the Whore of Babylon.
    A cowspiracy among femtrads permeates the forum, and soytrads are oblivious.
