I'd have to argue that most possessions occur because of the use of a ouija board, which is quite a typical thing to assume, albeit, not entirely accurate.

I have a question.... The silly movie "Rose Red", posed a good question. Can a house be posessed by evil? I can understand why people are possessed, religiously speaking, but why would an inanimate object be posessed? Just some thoughts I've been thinkin...

Hrmmm....I wouldn't think that a house could be possessed...but I do think that it can be haunted by an entity, mavolent or otherwise.

I wouldn't think a house or car (as in the movie where the car is possessed, I cant remember what it is called.)can be possessed. But if enough evil has happened in that place who knows how it effected it or what it left behind.

Hauntings and possessions are similar - just a question of the medium is.

Generally the term "possessed" is limited to living things (or the physical remains of living things).  The biggest exception would be the "possessed" toy (I would classify these as mere hauntings).

Both are scary and involve a spirit / ghost.

I didn't lose my mind - I have it backed up on a disk ... somewhere

Oh I know I read that one. Talk about turning on the lights while I was on the computer. ;)  I thought it was weird that as soon as she left the house she got better. Why do you think that was? Do you think the spirit could only possess her as long as she was in the house?

I think some spirits are stronger in some places then others, like did the person die there or buried on that land the funiture and some cases the energy level of the living people in that erea

now we're sort of getting back into the 'ghosts vs. demons' discussion, i think. granted, i'm still questioning the existence of ghosts, defined as 'spirits of the dead.' i believe in spiritual forces. i do believe in angels and demons. i just don't know if ghosts are really spirits of the dead, or a manifestation of something else. the more i learn about my own faith, the more i come to feel that walking spirits are technically feasable.

but look at me get all off-subject and stuff.

anyway, when posessions do occur, i'm thinking those are demon-caused, rather than caused by the spirit of a dead person.

man, i'm getting needlessly wordy in my old age.

i think in most cases its demonistic tho in one case i thought it was a spirit

                                           sometimes its very hard to know the difference between the two

I had a friend who had a possessed bed. It was given an exorcism and it was fine. That is how we know it was demonic. Once the cross entered the room it would shake. Now it is normal.

The possessions I've read about have been invited by the person through some sort of portal like the ouija board.
When I was younger I would be visited by some sort of entity.It would often happen when I was very tired and relaxed, you know when you're just starting to fall into a deep sleep.At first the feeling would be nice. It would feel like someones hands where stroking my hair ,almost sensual. then it would quickly turn nasty and it would feel like a hand around my neck or a knee in my back causing pressure.I've talked to other people who have had this experience and they have all felt like they were to blame somehow .Almost as if they invited the entity to come out of curiousity.I have often wondered what it is .Did I cause it to happen? Or would it become stronger by makeing it welcome . Or is it just some sort of subconsious state of mind ?
