    Someone might promise the Democratic Party.

    Oh wait, he has them.

    The reason I could not take the Opening Post seriously is because of what I have read on possession. And no, this was not just from Catholic sources. At least one separate report was by a well-known psychiatrist. A commonality in possession is that Satan cannot just possess whomever he decides to possess. Satan cannot possess an individual without some form of consent by that individual. (People who have been possessed have noted this.) Another person is not for someone else to give. It would be kind of like trying to sell someone the Brooklyn Bridge.

    I think post #12 says it well. I think I'm no authority on this, but that would be my opinion. The person who made the deal with satan is doing so out of greed. The rules of the Occult? and who enforces those rules? and how do you know if the rules were broken? the person would not know until after they died and then there would be no recourse. I believe, the person would be selling his own soul, not the others. It's a con.

    It's a lie.

    Satan does not have the power to give you anything that you think you might get out of such a deal, nor to collect the soul that is purportedly sacrificed or offered to him.

    Why wouldn't He? Those “sacrificed” in such a phony deal are not and will not be held responsible for the misdeeds of the one who “sacrificed” them. What nonsense it is to even suppose that they could be.

    God has dominion over Satan and you can't really buy or sell your own or another's soul, except on "Supernatural."

    Are you sure that your wife and child are not your personal property to sell, if you think outside a secular democratic society?

    It's all a lie anyway. They were God's from the beginning. They might have willingly given themselves to Satan; they certainly cannot give any other. A lie. Satan has absolutely no power over God. This is why, in the Bible, the demons cry out to Jesus before He said a word: (Luke 4:41).

    Are wives allowed to sacrifice their husbands?

    I'm pretty sure mine did something nasty like that to me before our divorce.

    No you are doomed so may as well have fun.

    And don’t worry because 99% chance there is no Satan
