"Judge not by appearances, but by the truth."
Bearing in mind that criminal spirit people can infiltrate, masquerade, and otherwise lead astray, plant fals associations, and deceive generally, how many potential false inferences and possible erroneous conclusions does Durant suggest or make mention of in this passage from his Age of Faith, pages 821-822?
"Philip the Fair charged that homosexual practices were popular among the [Knight] Templars. The Penitentials -- ecclesiastical manuals prescribing penances for sins -- mention the usual enormities, including bestiality; an astonishing variety of beasts received such attentions. Where amours of this sort were discovered they were punishable with the death of both participants; and the records of the English Parliament contain many cases of dogs, goats, cows, pigs, and geese being burned to death with their human paramours."
Nothing is more powerful, painful, and destructive than fire. And as a kind and like other sorts of fire the demonistic needs to be harnessed and channeled for useful and constructive ends. This, in fact, is what right thinking Christianity and Buddhism seek to do with it rather than utterly quench or assume to destroy it per se.
The animals were Christ long before any human became one. Think on, pray for, and throw in your lot with them.
["'Ten Minutes Ago' - Stuart Damon in Cinderella"]
Yes, spirit people are capable of the most tremendous marvels, but then so are you and even, of course, animals as well. It's all a matter of how one views the given feat or wonder performed, and that is to say intelligently or else irrationally.
The ghostly magician is like unto God...in many circles certainly.
Many, of course, have already seen "Airport" (1970); I myself saw it when it was first shown in the theaters, and what a memorable experience that was! But it's a shame in way to think that there are some, particularly younger people, who still don't even know about that movie. For which reason, I'm posting this here as I did earlier last night on Face Book.

It makes you wonder. What if Satan had minded his own business all these epochs, and conducted himself kindly and morally toward others. What, do you suppose, would we be looking at? What would he be like?
[Liberace - "Born Free"]
You know what it is like to be full and satisfied physically. But do you know the heart and mind need to be full and satisfied also? And yet some people believe that their heart and mind are no more than what is merely physical. This, as you realize, is not what Christ and worthy philosophers taught or teach. Let's endeavor then to be of benefit to others, even if, given trying circumstances, we are not or cannot be much use to ourselves.
God's will be done; because when it comes to life at its worst, who knows how to handle it? Who knows what to do?
And when you die say "May things be good. May things be right."
Christ is what (truly) works and what (truly) works is Christ, and if it doesn't work it isn't Christ.
He says he has so much good behind him that he is not distressed by the bad before him.
