Why is it that people don't believe in powers? Psychic powers, demons, spirits? Yet they believe in the one that created them? (God)

i don't want no negative answers I just want to know why people don't believe? I use to not when I was little but now that I have been meeting people with these powers they show me how the world looks at them as crazy people when really there just like everyone else.

God is the ultimate power. The devil has to get God's permission to do anything. So his power is limited. Therefore the devil has no power

Okay I'm gonna say this nicely - there is no big man in the sky and there is no devil that sits in hell and there is no heaven or hell when your dead your dead end of story you don't go anywhere

And I will say to you nicely. That's your opinion. But for us who are Born Again we know different because reveals Himself to those who truly seek Him and follow Him and His Word. That being said this conversation is over. You have a free will and choice to believe what you wish. God Bless!

Hi James.
Do you think, the devil still gets permission from God to bring this lost world under his submission? I would have thought once he was thrown from heaven, never being allowed to enter the holy place (Gods presence) anymore & given the earth as his domain, he would just be running havoc? Does it not say that he is prince of this world? or is it, god of this world?

It says god of this world. But just like Job he still has to get permission from God to be able to do anything. If you remember the devil can appear as an angel of light. Therefore he trys to sneak in with all the other angels even after he was kicked out of heaven. But God isn't stupid He knows the devil.


2 Corinthians 4:1-4

4 Therefore, since we have this ministry, as we have received mercy, we do not lose heart. 2 But we have renounced the hidden things of shame, not walking in craftiness nor handling the word of God deceitfully, but by manifestation of the truth commending ourselves to every man’s conscience in the sight of God. 3 But even if our gospel is veiled, it is veiled to those who are perishing, 4 whose minds the god of this age has blinded, who do not believe, lest the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine on them.

Here's a scripture pertaining to the devil being prince of the air.


Ephesians 2:1-3

2 And you He made alive, who were dead in trespasses and sins, 2 in which you once walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit who now works in the sons of disobedience, 3 among whom also we all once conducted ourselves in the lusts of our flesh, fulfilling the desires of the flesh and of the mind, and were by nature children of wrath, just as the others.

So lemme get this straight--Satan HAS God's permission, which is why scaredycats fear Satan. If God didn't give his permission, Satan's nothing to worry about cuz God took care of THAT. I guess that explains the line in The Lord's Prayer, asking God to "lead us not into temptation" cuz he's just the kind of guy who will do exactly that. Got it. ^_^

I'm tired of looking at your idiotic arguments.
Before you use something to help yourside...think to yourself "can they use this to support their side too?"

You said "the fool says in his heart 'there is no god'".
And that wasn't a very smart thing to say, because I can say "the fool says in his heart 'there is a god'".

You bring up quotes from the bible.
I can bring up quotes from a thousand different bibles, that all say different.

You bring up a religious site as if it's fact.
I can bring up a thousand sites just like it, that say wizards are real.

I'm becoming incredibly frustrated with your idiocracy.

And now we have rising before us not only people who know the mind of God but the mind of Satan, too. Rather intimately. I'm proud to announce that I have no such intimate relations with imaginary people. :)

religion is bullshit
the only way to really find out what is real or not is to ask the one that knows it all. if you cant find out who or how then your life on earth is a waste of time to the higher powers.- just saying

And you have spoken to these "higher powers"?

Because they believe in logic. They don't think the bible is possible because of what they've experienced in their life, they don't think they can part a sea, etc.

The presence of a revered diety motivates people to live, to love, and to be human. God made all living beings as equals with their own special talents. besides if we had demons and powers we wouldn't last very long

Most of those arose from satanic influences. Psychic piwers dint actually exist, they are merely in the imaginations of humans. God didnt make anything like that. He also made it very clear that people who 'practice' such things do so completely against His wishes and teachings. He condemns fools who play with such foolishness.

God created angels. The beings we refer to as 'demons' are just angels who rebelled against God and were cast from heaven. Demons like in movies that can be called on and manipulated by so called 'magic' werent created by God because they dont exist.
As for spirits, if you mean like ghosts and loose spurits roaming about, they dont exist outside the human imagination either. The only 'spirit' that actually exists is the Holy Spirit which is actually God not a ghost.

I choose not to believe in demons etc. because that stuff freaks me out. For those of you who have seen possession, Jewish Demons are not very child friendly. But in general, I do believe there are spirits, and demons, etc. but I don't believe in psychic powers.

They were raised to think that, think about it if someone tells you this is right and this is wrong ever sense you were a child, you are very likely to believe it. I however, do not believe in God nor powers.

I do believe they exist & are real, but they, psychic powers & demons & unholy spirits are the devils'. Therefore I don't have anything to do with them. I don't touch unclean evil forces.

Most likely because there is no good evidence any of those things exist- including gods.

The same reason why Christians proudly claim the miracles, supernatural, magic healing and pseudo providence of their god, while utterly despising witchcraft and magic! We are told, that we can be eternally saved by putting our unquestionable faith in believing the characteristics of their god, but behold; we will be eternally doomed for believing the same characteristics of a witch or a magician! Isn't it hypocrisy in its lowest form!!

Today the modern clergy still endeavors to explain natural phenomena by supernatural theories, and while they do not assign supernatural powers to witches and demons, they yet persist in perverting the facts of nature and science, and attempt to have us deluded with faith by assigning the supernatural for their deity. They are ready to allow their god the advantages that they would deny for the witches and magicians. Strange, indeed.

Christians believe demons exist and the souls of people (sometimes called in the Bible called "spirits") also exist. Most Christians do not believe in psychics because God is the only one who knows the future. Hope this helped. :)
