Sadly, Witnesses have come under the impression that demons will only attack you if you are doing something wrong. Most literature gives clear warnings to be wary of entertainment and activities and that if you are in trouble, by amending your attitude, spirituality and destroying the object which it attached to, that you will be safe. This is not the case. I agree on staying away from spiritism by using demons/spirits or whatever else you want to call them, to gain information, contact the dead, look into the future etc, but simply accusing someone of being "involved in spiritism" does NOT cover everything. There are many reasons why an entity can be attached to a person's home, or be following/attacking an individual and simply renouncing immorality is not going to stop it.
Based on all of the above, I am very curious as to something...
Has anyone ever heard of a Witness who has crossed paths with a incorporeal spirit/demon that was not drawn to an individual based on their 'unholyness', but instead inhabiting an inanimate object such as a house, a painting or other antique, or where a person is the target, through no fault of their own? Did they ever tell you how they dealt with it? Yes, I know that Witnesses as a rule stay away from all things demonic, they don't fight, and most don't even believe in self defense due to the refusal to be involved in ANY form of violence, but were they willing to become involved and help remove the demon or did they cut contact? Were they scared for themselves or for the one it was attacking? What did they believe caused it, and what they do in reaction?
As a side note, as a Witness (on the off chance any should visit this site), have you ever come across such an occurrence? Moving into a property you didn't know was haunted? Met a spiritual individual facing demonic persecution for reasons OTHER than doing something they shouldn't?
Anyone commenting this, if you intend to b**** at Jehovah's Witnesses, move along. This isn't a thread to pick them apart, I want to know of their encounters, NOT your opinions of the religion. I'm not interested in a religious debate admonishing any branch or claim on true Christianity. I am not an active JW anymore for reasons I will not go into, but I will always respect and admire the organization along with the Watchtower Society. As a whole, they are some of the most warm hearted and peaceful people I have ever met in my life and I am truly thankful to have been raised within the Christian congregation. My life however, no longer fits that bill...
