quote by Brad Jersak about conversation with his 9 year old son, out of the blue.
“Hey dad, demons aren’t fallen angels.”
“so who told you that.”
“well, Jesus did”
“so what are demons then”
“Jesus told me that demons are created by people out of the ashes of war, out of the things they desire that don’t belong to them, and out of the tears they make when they are afraid. So we create the demons out of those things, and then they take on a life of their own and turn on you and begin to torment you.”
the hairs on my neck stood up as it connected with so many things I’d been hearing from Michael Hardin, Wink and others. Things that make sense of our lives…on the one hand it is anthropological, but we’re also saying it is reality.
