Question are they right? - February 20th 2011, 06:37 AM

I just want to start off saying i dont mean to offend anyone who cuts, im a cutter too and im just asking. Ok so my parents are both christians and they say that cutters are possed with demons because there is a passage in the bible that says a possesed dude was cutting himself and then jesus cast the demons out of him. They dont know i cut, and i DONT plan on telling them. But i cant help but wonder...are they right? am i possesed? any thoughts or advice would be appreciated

I don't know what the bible says, but i really don't believe that you or I are possesed, or anyone who SHs. So no, i don't think your parents are right, but they are intitalled to their own opinions and beliefs. :-)
Feel free to PM me if you want to talk about anything.
Take care

Um, NO... I guess your parents didn't read the bible right. "Each night and every day among the tombs and in the mountains, he would cry out and cut himself with stones." -Mark 5:5. And so on, they say how he had an unclean spirit in him. But all of us do, Satan. He's the one whose tempting us. Not some evil spirit or demon inside of us. And you are not possessed in any way. Talk to any minister or pastor, and they'll never tell you anything like your parents told you.

The TRUTH, will set you FREE. (John 8:32)

"For I know the PLANS I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to PROSPER you and not to harm you, plans to GIVE YOU HOPE and a future." (Jer. 29:11)

i disagree with your parents compltley. people who self harm are NOT posessed demons. they are people just like anyone else.

We do not fear death, we fear that no one will notice our absence. That we will disappear without a trace.

Just because a guy who was possessed cut himself with stone doesn't mean that every person who selfs harms is possessed by a demon. That's ridiculous. You definitely shouldn't worry about this. Self harm isn't healthy, no, but it doesn't mean you're possessed.

I don't know what the Bible says hon, but I highly doubt that you are. I'm also a cutter, and I know that I'm not possessed.
