So, LG, how do I know if I am possessed by a demon?

Well, I'm glad you asked. There are several ways that you can tell that are suffering from possession by a demon.

- Can you suddenly speak or understand languages that they haven’t previously known?
- Can you predict the future or do you know things that you shouldn't?
- Do you have abnormal physical strength?
- Has there been a sudden change in your character to display hatred of all things sacred?
- Are you suffering from depression or melancholy and suicidal tendencies?
- Have you started to blaspheme or request the devil’s assistance when in a uncontrollable rage?
- Are you vomiting knives, keys, pins and needles or other objects ?

By the Middle Ages, this list of symptoms had grown to include speaking gibberish, suffering contortions or seizures, mania, lunacy and gynaecological irregularities.

In more recent times, for the Evangelical and Charismatic movements especially, the list of symptoms of demonic possession has increased again to include feeling “out of sorts” and feeling behavioural urges of non-Christian nature eg. Suicidal impulses or impulses to engage in sins of the flesh.

Hrm, what does it mean if you've vomited a key?

Would it unlock a door to the underworld?

More like it would unlock the door to an outstanding career as an illusionist.

Ah, forgive me, I'm being cynical again aren't I?
