Spiritual Warfare Forum: cursed ring?
cursed ring? QUESTION from debbie on July 3, 2002 Dear Bro John Paul,
I have felt very uncomfortable with my Aunt ever since I as a little kid. She is my mother's first cousin so technically she is my 2nd cousin, but i was told to call her aunt. She is also my Godmother.She shot her first husband to death as he slept, while her 3 young sons were in the house. While spending 4 years in prison for this crime was allowed to take college courses and get her liscense as a marriage counselor. She has never voiced any remorse for her crime and has done many other unholy things like having an affair with a priest, using sex to get what she wanted from college professors. She never seems to get in trouble for the wrong she does. She is a genius with an IQ of over 150, but uses her intelligence to manipulate. She was very controlling with her sons and second husband. Despite all this she is the church organist and one of the pillars of her parish. Fortunately she lives 3000 miles away so I have always had little interaction with her. My mom has a soft spot for her, talks with her frequently and tells me she likes me, but I don't want her to like me. Anyway last week out of the blue this aunt sends me a diamond ring that she wore for many years. I do not want this ring, fear it may be cursed. My husband said that is nonsense and because the ring is worth over $1000 he hid it, so I can't get rid of it. could this ring cause problems for my family? Could I be under a curse because this woman is my godmother?
ANSWER by John-Paul Ignatius, OLSM on July 8, 2002 Dear Debbie:
It sounds like your aunt is a curse waiting to happen :)
There is no reason to believe that your Aunt would purposely send you a curse. A curse is a deliberate act on the part of a person to bring down evil upon someone else. Sometimes we curse someone without fully knowing what we are doing it. For example, saying something really stupid to someone like, I hope the devil gets you for that. This may cause things to happen. That is why we are to guard our speech and why cursing (in the sense of damning things) is wrong -- it can have real effects.
It is unlikely that your Aunt who likes you, would do such a thing.
If you are too uncomfortable with the ring, have it blessed by a priest. That will take care of any demonic attachments that may have been with the ring.
