    Officially methodist.But goes back and forth between the idea of the soul with methodism and jehovah's witness.
    Can demons assault you physically or sexually?I am not asking for me personally.I was just curious.

    I finally figured out what direction I should go, when I studied the revelations of the Baha'i faith
    I don't think so.

    The answers here will probably kind of be like when you asked people whether the paranormal could harm Christians.

    There are many accounts of "Demons" sexually assaulting (raping) people in history, the crafty little Devils almost invariably were disguised as local men such as priests and constables etc.
    I think maybe the men who were seduced by succubi were probably men who bit off more than they could chew and felt sexually inferior thus claiming the woman to be a witch or demon.

    Yes, however, after the Flood, God prohibited the “angels that sinned - 2 Peter 2:4; Jude 1:6” from manifesting themselves physically anymore, so they couldn’t outright deceive humans or generate offspring, like they did before the Flood.

    But, remember what they were after, before the Flood? The reason they came down? It was sex! Genesis 6:1-4 reveals that. Interesting that the ancient Greeks, Romans, Norse, etc., all had myths where the “gods” were having relations with women! Those myths are based on those events!

    They will only try such activity, if a person opens themselves up by trying to contact them. Even unwittingly.

    Google ‘Doris Bithers’.

    Demons are wicked people in spirit form who are confined to Hell. Devils are wicked people still in the flesh and they reside on earth, the "land of the living". Eventually demonic spirits will be extinguished and they will cease to exist. They have no power to assault people.

    Demons are nothing more than fictional entities that people made up in an attempt to avoid taking responsibility for their own actions.

    Yes, under the right conditions. But it's not ordinary. If they do so then rebuke them in Jesus name. Tell them to begone in Jesus name. As the scripture says "resist the devil" and he'll flee from you. If nothing happens when you first rebuke them do it again. And keep doing it until they leave. The thing is a lot of times people might give up when they do it once and nothing seems to happen. However what they don't realize is that these demons are persistent so they run away(short distance) and come right back. You have to keep resisting and eventually the demon will be forced to leave.

    Also quoting scriptures and praying for protection is good idea. Repenting of sins helps a lot.

    We can never underestimate what these powerful creatures are capable of....which is why God tells us to steer clear of anything to do with spiritism, astral travel or any excursion onto occult practices. Curiosity has been the undoing of many.

    I find in the old Hebrew Scriptures, that angelic spirits turned themselves into demons. Not people into demons.
    Biblical hell is sheol, or just the temporary stone-cold grave for sleeping dead humans.
    Or, as King Solomon wrote that the dead know nothing at Ecclesiastes 9:5.
    I agree that demonic spirits will be extinguished in that the wicked will be ' destroyed forever ' as per Psalms 92:7
    Both wicked spirits and wicked persons will become extinct as if they never existed.

    No.

    Though I realize this will inevitably dissolve into a subjective discussion demons (often many times simply the deities of other cultures) are higher order beings and as such typically not involved in such activities. However, the dis-incarnate spirits of humans and even particularly malevolent nature spirits are entirely down with this sort of activity many of them feed on negative energy hence the reason for the actions. Of course, this is my own experience -- not some silly scripture quote nor some obscure trope based on what you'd see in a movie.

    Most cases of "demonic abuse" sexual or otherwise are mental disorders -- especially if the person neither has had a predilection toward psychic phenomena or involvement in occult practices. I'd guess that is the likely first stop and that it's not a real instance or occurrence. People whom have seen spirits or have the ability to feel their presence usually have this most of their lives -- it doesn't get switched on for one life event.

    False religions say that demons are fallen angels. However, the scriptures NEVER associate demons with angels. :D

    you mentioned you’re speaking from experience. I have been dealing with horrible uncomfortable and unfathomable stuff that I honestly couldn’t find any other answer to than for it to be paranormal/entities/spirits. But since I haven’t found anyone who could get rid of it, and prayers and rebuking and all that hasn’t done anything, now I’m trying to get a neurological exam.
    Did you find out that whatever you experienced was neurological or something else? If what I have is caused by a neurological disorder, I hope they can at least confirm it and tell me what it is with 1 or 2 tests, I really can’t wait and afford never ending testing.
