    He could have ingested the little demon bugger. I recall hearing about such happenings when I was a born-again Christian. They come out with some pretty wild stuff.

    They were bruises in the exact areas where I felt the demonic creature grab me on my arms and I couldn't physically have done it to myself whether in my sleep or not. I don't need a doctor to tell me what happened. I was a Christian at the time but I was not where I needed to be. I know a lot of other people who have had similar experiences. I have had other experiences with them where they have manipulated objects, awakened me in my sleep, seen them, had out of body experiences, ect. The point is that this stuff is real, but the source is satan. In every instance where I have been attacked by these creatures, they reacted violently to rebuking them in the name of Jesus Christ. They leave and the attack stops. God is real. The Bible is true.

    You're certain the bruising is not being caused by any of the conditions in either of the following two links?

    It's a piece of literature altered and changed to suit whichever King was in charge at the time.

    The Bible IS a history book. It's the History of the Jewish race, how it came to be and it's history of the lineage of the Messiah and His works, followers, message, ect.

    Re: Ghosts

    Sorry but the book is not a history book. Read literally it presents absurdities. At the crucifixion the saints came out of their graves and walked around in Jerusalem!!!!! That is totally unbelievable. Same with the sun standing syill for 24 hours while Joshua finished his destruction of innocent people. Talking snakes!!! These and many others are simply ludicrous. This does not happen and the church if it maintains such will die. Most of the Bible is "Midrash". and has to be read as such. The four gospels contain the parables of Jesus as well as the parables about Jesus. If the saints coming out of t heir graves is historically accurate why is it not in the history books. That would be an incredible story to write about.

    Re: Ghosts

    Betty in many ways you are correct. However let's not lose track of the wisdom therein. Yes the book has been redacted, added to and and subtract from. The ancient manuscriips were also copied and recopied by humans and so there is no doubt that things changed over time.

    But it IS a history book. You just don't believe the history that's written in it. I do believe it. Question if God is able to create the whole earth out of nothing, don't you think He's strong enough to make the sun stand still? Make the saints come out of the graves at the Crucifixion? Make a Donkey talk? The Bible is not Midrash. You are kidding yourself. I have seen miracles from God in my own life. Were THEY Midrash too?

    Xfrod I'm not denying that miracles do seem to happen. I simply don't believe God works that way. Oh yes it is not history. It is midrash. It;s not even reasonable to believe that.. I do think you are making God in your own image and you have made God into a being with a multiple personality disorder. Jesus was all about love and the kingdom and not the carrot and stick man.
