Question QUESTION from Anthony July 17, 2000 Often I have thoughts were my mind says Sell your soul, or I will have thoughts that will try and Blasphemy against the Holy Spirit. Is this my mind or outside influence?
ANSWER by John-Paul Ignatius, O.L.S.M. on September 17, 2000 Dear Mr. Anthony:
It can come from both the imaginings of your own mind, especially if you have contaminated yourself with negative or demonic images from TV, movies, and music, or it could come from the whisperings of the evil one.
First, stop listen to negative and especially demonic/occult oriented music, stop watching TV shows or movies of the same sort. Fill you mind with what is pure.
Second, heed this Biblical Advice:
2 COR 10:4b-5 We destroy arguments and every pretension raising itself against the knowledge of God, and take every thought captive in obedience to Christ
PHIL 1:10 to discern what is of value, so that you may be pure and blameless for the day of Christ
PHIL 4:8 Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is gracious, if there is any excellence and if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things.
