You know how it's meant to be possible to summon forth a mighty demon?

Could you summon forth an angel of the Lord instead? I suppose an angel wouldn't be offering you great power for a price or anything much at all but I'm sure they could answer some interesting questions. Or would I be right to assume that angels would stay put and be unsummonable without Gods permission? I know they may not actually exist but this is hypothetical.

It's worth noting that in ancient Greece daemons were essentially good spirits and more akin to spirit guides but Christians literally demonised them. And angels back in the days of the Persian Empire and the Babylonians were essentially powerful guardian monsters that would tear you limb from limb. So there has been a bit of a role reversal there.

Basically... you're completely dead wrong. There's a glimmer of fact in there, but it's wrong. I'd go into more detail but I don't have the time right now. Suffice to say that you should read more up on Daemons in ancient Greece, monsters in ancient Greece, Angelology, demonology in medieval Europe including the sort of Jewish mysticism that was hugely popular at the time, the story of Enoch and Babylonian lore. You'll probably have a lot of fun with that too, as its interesting readin'.

In your opinion?

And...where exactly does it say people nowadays can summon forth a mighty demon ? Unless you mean like on a Ouija board or something.

Right next to where it says there will be a rapture on May 21.

Ok so it's in the Bible somewhere then. Where at ?

When were we ever not going to be here on this date ? Maybe if today was October 28th then I'd understand where you are coming from.

Whoops, completely forgot about this part. I mean, Camping and his idiot followers have only been wrong twice so far. Third time's a charm.
