"Demons are significant, as are the gods. It was Thomas Aquinas
to regard the angels, alike the gods, as clean spirits. By later
Middle Ages, these demons also were identified as fallen angels.
But the Christian view, condemning all pagan spirits as evil, regards
demons as representatives of the devil whose purpose was to destroy
souls and condemn them to hell." -Omens of Millenium, Harold
|Christians view demons as fallen angels
that have been condemned into Hell because of their misuse of power
and pride. They believed that demons were created as helpers of the
devil to gather souls and also bring them into hell as their own disciples
of evil. In the Judaism perspective, they believe that demons are
of evil powers, who dwell in the night, and cast evil onto others.
However, Christians percieve the demons in association with the Devil.
In Biblical scriptures, many passages relate to the fallen angels
and Satan, who has been cast down the Hell.
|There is also an interesting fact about
the belief of angels having intercourse with humans around the world,
which started from the mytholgies of Christians. The church believed
that they could get rid of these demons by sacremental confession,
making the sign of the cross, reciting prayers, and exorcism.
