I would appreciate some reviews on Amazon from those who have read this book.
Tag Archives: religious demons and passivity
The truth to be emphasized is that God never “wills” instead of man, and whatever a man does, he is himself responsible for his actions. Religious demons major goal is to manipulate the will of a sincere and unsuspecting believer into a state of passivity in order to control us.
The believer whose “will” has become passive, finds, after a time, the greatest difficulty in making decisions of any kind, and he looks outside, and all around him for something to help him to decide the smallest matters. When he has become conscious of his passive condition, he has a painful sense of being unable to meet some of the situations of ordinary life. If spoken to, he knows he cannot will to listen till a sentence is completed; if asked to judge a matter, he knows he cannot do it; if he is required to “remember” or use his imagination, he knows he is unable to, and becomes terrified at any proposed course of action where these demands may come upon him. The tactics of the enemy now may be to drive him into situations where these demands may be made, and thus torture or embarrass him before others.
Little does the believer know that in this condition he may, unknowingly, rely upon the assistance of evil spirits, who have brought about the passivity for this very object. The faculty unused lies dormant and dead in their grip, but if used it is an occasion for them to manifest themselves through it. They are too ready to “will” instead of the man, and they will put within his reach many “supernatural” props to help him in “decision,” especially in the way of “texts” used apart from their context, and supernaturally given, which the believer, seeking so longingly to do the will of God, seizes upon, and firmly grasps as a drowning man a rope, blinded, by the apparently given Divine help, to the principle that Godnote 3 only works through the active volition of a man, and not for him in matters requiring his action.

Passive personalities have a unscriptual understanding of what it means to be a peacemaker. They deny their own anger, and pretend everything is O.K. When we are passive, and believe that to be a Christian means to be a doormat, the religious demon moves in. Why does the religious demon gain a foothold? Pam Sheppard is not only the expert on the topic, but she has written a book called ” Faces of the Religious Demon” that covers all in detail.
According to Pam Sheppard, the religious demon causes passive spirits to become spiritually crippled in regards to taking a stand against principalities and powers. I can certainly attest to and understand what Pam is referring to. If you can’t take a stand against other Christians who are obviously pushing you around, and taking advantage of you, something is wrong. How on earth will you be able to confront demons?
When Christian leaders are allowed to vent their unholy appetites in the organized church, because their passive followers are too weak to confront them…Houston we have a problem! Those who are passive personalities, because of a distorted and unscriptural understanding of the Gospel, are fodder for the religious demon. How so? Tell me why pastors who abuse children sexually in church get away with it? Tell me why pastors who commit crimes, get convicted but still keep a large following in tow. On all points, a religious demon is at work in passive personalities that cause souls to be lost.
Tell me why Christian leaders who are tyrants and bullies, leave a trail of passive personalities quivering in their boots? Such personalities are ready to throw even children under a bus, to please the pastor. And also tell me why Christian leaders who are sincere, and God sent, have to put up with passive personalities walking about on egg shells, afraid to do the work they themselves were called to.
I’m not a stranger to such behaviors myself, but I can tell you this: those days are long since gone for me. Passivity, a passive personality, and a unscriptual understanding of what it means to be a peacemaker, will usher you right into hell. The person you’ve allowed to abuse you may just end up in some flames too. Case in point, before I was totally freed in Christ, I had to let go of a so-called Christian who I thought was like a mother to me. Well, she was no such thing but a witch in sheep’s clothing. Doing her word of faith thing, and her witchcraft thing all at the same time. And as abusive and caustic as powdered lye. Always ready with a sharp put down, and torments reminding me of my past history of child abuse and addictions.
A few weeks before I got truly saved, I dreamt that this woman was in my car, in the driver’s seat, I sat in the back, and the woman was driving like a wild women. I found an interesting excerpt today by Pam Sheppard’s book ” Faces of the Religious Demon”, that gave the same meaning I got in reference to this dream. This woman had taken charge of my very soul.
On page 207 of the groundbreaking textbook ” Faces of the Religious Demon” Pam Sheppard writes in reference to personality types that religious demons gain power from:
Pam Sheppard writes:
In each personality type there will be Christians who have not rightly divided the word of God relative to being a peacemaker, where forgiveness and meekness are taken for weakness. Acclimated to the general role of peacemaker, captives may live a life of pretense, where they habitually hide and deny justifiable hostility and anger so as to turn the other cheek ” religiosity “.
In this regard, the religious demon will cause passive saints to become spiritually crippled in their counterfeit moral purity, predisposing to a shrinking process that stifles their ability to strike back–not so much at people who have wronged them, but for taking a stand against principalities and powers. They end up feeling like one of my clients who dreamed she was the back seat driver in her own car, and the person whom the Jezebel spirit has manipulated to keep the client in captivity was metaphorically ” behind the wheel ” of her very soul.
Do you see that. Do you see what Pam said. In my dream, this so-called Christian controlling, abusive, caustic person was driving my car. She was a Christian who I tolerated because I had been living a life of pretense, hiding justifiable anger. I had allowed this woman to get ” behind the wheel ” of my very soul. This gave the religious demon power to afflict me. The day I broke the bondage of passivity I heard the Lord say, whom the Son sets free is free indeed. We can’t be free and passive at the same time. God needs soldiers! Doormats can’t fight demons.
A passive personality invites religious demons. Passivity and counterfeit love (term coined by Pam) are pretense, if your angry your angry. Pretending not to be angry is a counterfeit emotion. If we are such passive personalities, that we can’t deal with onslaughts and abuse upon our own person, what then? Can God use a passive personality? Or will your passive personality better serve the purposes of the religious demon?

Negative church people posing as Christians, is an ever abiding reality. The wheat and the tare grow together so we know for a fact, negative people operate in and out of church. Negative people posing as Christians are not in the minority either. These type of people, spend their waking hours complaining about everything and everybody. If they can’t bring at least one person down a day, they can’t sleep. The word of God teaches us that the mouth of the wicked is full of cursing and deceit and fraud: and that vanity and mischief are under their tongues (Psalm 10:7).
Satan tried to steal my soul at a very young age. When I was three years old, I was sexually abused by the teenage boys and girls down the street from where I lived. What would a little girl know about sex at this age? Because of this door being opened it was the beginning of my visitations from demons of lust. .
At night I would lie in bed, little and scared because I would feel the demons around me, I would cry because I was scared. After about a year, we moved away to a different town. My mother had then gotten us involved in a Lutheran church. I would remember going there and feeling safe. Little did I know then, that the jesus I was seeing there was the fake jesus and not the real one.
I was still being visited by the demons but then I also started having visitations from this “jesus” and in that time, I had visitations on many occasions. I would feel demons of lust around me wanting to have sex with me, but I would see this “jesus” also. This was the hook …Satan’s agenda..get me to follow the fake jesus by showing himself to me and helping to dispel the demons of lust….
If that wasn’t bad enough, the man next door to us at our new home had begun to sexually abuse me and this is when I began to understand that when there is sexual abuse, the demons from others can almost sniff it out..like when a male dog goes into heat looking for a female to mate with, such is how these demons sniff out sexual abuse in another. I know now that the main objective was for the enemy to render me useless for the kingdom of God by playing himself against himself. He was setting me up for the big deception…..
Pam Sheppard has written a most excellent book on the fake Jesus aptly entitled “The Fake Jesus “. Pam is THE expert on the topic. You’ll gain a complete and exact understanding of who the fake jesus is by reading Pam’s book. Click the book’s cover to preview it.
At 16 I was on the beach with my friend when I saw a young boy sitting in the sand with his legs crossed. He was around my age and as I was walking by him he asked me, “Do you know Jesus Christ?” I didn’t but I was so angry all of the time, and I fought constantly with my parents and siblings..our home was chaotic most of the time. I said “no” and he asked me if I wanted to. I said “sure” as my life couldn’t have gotten any worse than it already was. I said the “Sinners Prayer” with him and asked jesus into my heart. For two weeks I felt peaceful, the most peaceful I had ever felt and THEN….my whole life went to hell in a hand basket!
I was more out of control than I had ever been. I got pregnant and aborted the baby shortly after,became promiscuous and this would be the start of my depression…I would go on this way for years….little did Satan know that God had other plans for my life, but I will talk about that it my next article…until then, know this: If Jesus Christ of Nazareth has truly set you free, you will be free indeed.

Seducing Spirits? You’ve been subject to them, and you know what I’m talking about. Believe me, creepy church abuse from pastors and members, is the result of seducing spirits. Seducing spirits, in the form of religious demons have taken up office in the organized church.
In my last article, I was up into the wee hours of the morning, reading the quintessential textbook on demonic activity, seducing spirits and religious demons. What textbook is that? The textbook I’m talking about was written by Pam Sheppard, entitled ” Faces of the Religious Demon”. Folks, the camel dung has hit the fan in the organized church. Abuse, whether spiritual or physical is the order of the day. Seducing spirits have taken over! If you would just read Pam’s book, you’ll get an earful of revealing information backed by scripture.
You’ll understand exactly why so and so pastor, is sexually abusing our children in church. If you read Pam’s textbook, and give it a studious read, you’ll know exactly why church members dog each other out in the name of Jesus. You’ll know exactly why rapists, adulterers, thieves, liars and the like, are quite cozy and content in church buildings. If a seducing spirit is at work in you, you may not be able to admit any of this. You’ll be that passive personality that supports ” Big Daddy Bishop” even though he was convicted of a felony.
You desperately need Pam’s book, for it will help you get truly free.

Don’t even feel ashamed, I was once just like you, but it’s time for us all to wake up, and look seducing spirits in the eye, calling them what they are. They are abusive, raping, molesting, condescending, religious demons. These demons, look out at you from the eyes of organized church members, Christian leaders, and Pastors.
Creepy, repulsive church abuse is widespread, and has become an epidemic in the organized church. oops! Let me rephrase that. Creepy abominable organized church abuse, has been going on since the days of Christ. Case in point, the crucifixion. We know ALL was God’s plan, but abusive, caustic, abominable, hurtful, lying, thieving Christian leaders were easy to find then, just as they are now. The religious, have a seducing spirit. The religious and their comical religiosity, have been taken over by religious demons. They feel quite at home in the organized church.
I’ll tell you what sickens me the most regarding seducing spirits and religious demons. Those priests, pastors, Christian leaders (male and female) who creep behind pulpits to have sex with four-year olds. They really sicken me! These horrific acts are both spiritually and physically abusive.
Spiritual abuse is part of the whole organized church package. You can expect it! Seducing spirits, and religious demons, will make you think you have to eat crow in order to serve the Lord. You know what I’m talking about! For example: when this or that pastor, or some creepy, abusive church member chews you out, or dogs and puts you down in front of others. You felt a sinking feeling in your stomach, but were afraid to speak.
Even Pam Sheppard attests to the fact, and wrote an article describing the heavy abuse she suffered under superiors, during her 30 year appointment as the pastor of her church. Creepy repulsive, spiritual and physical church abuse by those inhabited by seducing spirit/religious demons is a reality. It is a reality for every organized church member no matter their station.
The organized church is full of silly foolish parents who leave children in the care of church workers. These naive parents haven’t got a clue. Every church worker should undergo background checks before working with children. Seducing spirits in the form of religious demons may enter workers regardless. But the fact that churches are so relaxed, that any Tom, Dick or Sally can care for precious children is a sign. A sign of what? A sign that somebody in leadership doesn’t give a hoot, and may just be an abuser themselves. To top if off, seducing spirits are experts at leaving open doors for trauma and abuse to occur.
The organized church is an abuse magnet. All one has to do is recite the unholy, abominable ” I accept Jesus” sinners prayer, or the unholy and extra abominable, ” I invite Jesus into my heart prayer” which ushers in a specific demon , who proceeds to immediately wreck hellish havoc in your life. All one has to do, in addition to reciting these unscriptural prayers, is throw money at the church. Then suddenly you’re a member of said organized church. Some people are just not saved. Some people are housing seducing spirit, religious demons. If they recited any of the above prayers, it’s almost a given.
No one checks new members out to see if they show fruits of righteousness. Therefore you get child molesters, rapists, thieves, controlling abusers mixing in with everyone else. Such have no intention of changing their ways, and some go on to be church leaders. Just look at pastors like Terry Hornbuckle of Texas, a disciple of TD Jakes, who was drugging and raping several women in his church.
Having said all of the above, once we are truly saved, that which we suffered is a faint memory. The anguish, emotional pain and anger of a child or an adult whose been in bondage to creepy abominable church abuse, is no match for the healing balm of the Savior.
