In North America, over the past few decades, several mental health professionals reported that 25% to 50% of patients treated with (MPD) multiple personality disorder came from some form of Satanic abuse. Such abuse includes sexual debauchery, sacrificial murder, infanticide and cannibalism.
Although many law enforcement fails to comprehend this phenomenon, the cause is evident in the actions of people affected by Satanism. When the enclosed logic of conspiracy theory is stripped from the historical or socio/psychological analysis, the hypothetical predators of Satanism disappear; leaving in their wake a wide variety of human suffering caught up in social delusion. I read where Marylin Manson and his wife had a few women who practiced Satanic sexual acts. Some of them were abused physically and sexually. Such abuse leaves an emotional scar that runs deep mentally and spiritually. Mental Illness is a problem that affects the brain, but in some severe cases, you can see the spirit of the affected as well.
Most people look to mystical or spiritual powers to explain away mental health issues. Mental health affects the brain and its operations and is not always spiritual or physical impairment. Many drugs like cocaine, LSD and many other causes severe damage to the brain, as many of these are used in Satanic worship rituals. It is sad that many people, instead of trying to stay away from drugs, run to them, using them to escape the craziness they feel. The use of drugs in this way only causes a person to spiral out of control.
There should be helpful in the church to understand what is of the mind and the spirit when it comes to mental health. Much of mental illness is of the mind, but in rare cases, you can see demonic oppression.
“Mental health has no apparent, statistically significant effect on later changes in beliefs in demons,”
Researchers reported in the study results just published online in the Journal for the Society of the Scientific Study of Religion. In the case of religion, if one holds an excessive belief that demons with evil intentions are all around, it may be difficult ever to feel safe and secure.
The devil’s number one tactic is definitely lies and deceit. See, everything changes if he can get you to believe his lies over God’s Word. You start to think differently, which leads to feeling differently and acting differently. So, when believed, his lies actually give him full access to destroy your life.
“He is a liar and the father of lies.” – John 8:44 Fear is another one of Satan’s favorite tactics. This is because fear has the power to hold us back and keep us stuck. It robs us of our faith and peace, plus keeps our minds fixed on the circumstances instead of God’s promises.
“God has not given us a spirit of fear.” – 2 Timothy 1:7Pride is the reason behind many problems in the world, one of them being the devil. Satan actually fell from heaven because of his pride, and he wants to take you down with him by stirring up pride within you.
“Pride leads to conflict.” – Proverbs 13:10He tempts you to sin in obvious ways, like leading you to do something immoral, but he can also tempt you in subtle ways as well. For example, puff you up in pride, saying that you’re holier than others, so you end up judging them.
“When tempted, no one should say, ‘God is tempting me.’ For God cannot be tempted by evil, nor does he tempt anyone” – James 1:13 It would be hard to recognize Satan’s lies if we spend each day believing every thought that enters our mind. To identify the enemy’s lies, we must take every thought captive to make it obedient to Christ (2 Corinthians 10:5).
