Discern4's Demons of Sickness
This is a bit of a multi-section post, but I have just watched Discren4's latest video and thought I would bring it to the forum's attention. Discern4 is a youtube user who was raised in a fundamentalist pentecostal church and this particular video brings to light his church's teachings on illness and its connection to demon possession. I think it's well worth a watch for those who aren't familiar with these practices.

A trigger warning should be in effect for anyone actually exposed to such practices. There are no actual exorcisms or the like in the video, and all the footage relates to fairly tame topics such as leg lengthening. However in this video and others he does deal with kinds of fears and paranoia that drive this faith healing belief, and the kind of condemnation levelled at those who don't comply.




This is Part I and is to be continued.

Give me your argument in the form of a published paper, and then we can start to talk.
