The plot thickens as the episode unfolds, where Nick brought in this "exorcist" to expel a demon (by the way this is never singular, demons travel with buddies) from the Ye Old Myst Tea House in Shepherdstown. The exorcist enters with the black clergy looking outfit, no collar (not clergy) and is wearing a cross around his neck. So far, okay. No big deal. The minister is led into the tea shop which is a war zone with debris scattered all over by the floor. I am curious what this exorcist is going to do since he was is forbidden to use the Rite of Exorcism (he wasn't approved by the Catholic church). I was pontificating that perhaps the audience was going to see a deliverance ministry session since by Catholic faith he couldn't use the Rite. I am also curious as to why the show didn't reach out to the Catholic diocese for a real exorcist in the first place! Credibility for this show is not a high point with
The exorcist prepares for battle by drawing in chalk on the floor, the star of David and enclosing it in a circle.
During this spiritual battle the "exorcist" never relied on his faith to expel the demon. He was stirctly adhering to occult formulas. Which any Christian deliverance minister knows is in effective against demons. Again, refer to the book of Acts and the Sons of Scheva who were thrown a beating by demons they were trying to expel. What do demons fear? Demons fear a person of faith because they have the spiritual depth and relationship with the reality of Jesus Christ to expel dark spirits. A powerful minister is a person whose soul is in a transforming union with Jesus Christ. A strong soul in Christ is kryptonite to demons and they won't follow these kinds of souls home!
Now back to wackiness at the tea shop. The minister has the Scooby gang renounce all ceremonies of satan. What did this guy just perfom? The seal of Solomon is the occult! Yes, this presentation of spiritual warfare was an atrocity. I am curious where this individual is ordained and which Catholic parish allows this minister to operate in this manner. It's not Christian, it's New Age. I am guessing he must be a universalist minister. But then again, what should I expect from a paranormal show.
Wasn't Shepherdstown cleansed by the psychic minister previously? If I remember correctly from season one, didn't the show psychic break the curse over Shepherdstown. Oh, yah. We're not supposed to be paying attention. The show concluded with everyone happy and that the site was cleansed. This is exactly the scene from the Poltergeist movie, "This house is clean!'. It's not, no one in the cleansing party was there with the faith to expel these demons. They demons went out for re-enforcements! I guess that's what we'll see in season 3.
Sidebar, I had to Google this exorcist to find out what exactly his background was in ministry. He has ties to the Old Catholic Church. Which is not Catholic, but in short an abomination to the Catholic Church. The paranormal field is so twisted in spirituality it always gravitates to the Old Catholic Church for help. From the home web page this exorcist also has ties to the Dominion Ministry, which is pagan spiritual warfare.
In closing, if you're Christian and thinking you're an exorcist or a deliverance minister for the paranormal, you need to go pray and re-think your position in the greater plan of things. People viewing these shows and replicating these occult practices will get hurt. I can guarantee your lives will be destroyed. This is something you don't mess with at all! That's why the Catholics don't let layman be exorcists. A spiritual attachment is something you never want on you or your home. Those of us who have been brought into a spiritual fight by God DON'T live in oppression like these ghost hunters do. Go look on youtube and see for yourself the spirits that torment all these paranormal celebrities. These things are real and they bite back.
Well, that's enough for now. Hope this was beneficial.
