    What typical ways do you know to invite the devil into your life? I have found the followings.

    1. Abused women unwittingly invite the devil into their lives to please their abuser and in hope of stopping the beatings.

    2. Abused children invite the devil into their lives for the same reason.

    3. Atheistic or agnostic parents invite the devil into their children's lives by ordering psychic work on their children.

    4. Atheistic or agnostic people do the same for themselves.

    5. Certain psychological therapy techniques.

    6. Yoga, possibly.

    7. You invite the devil into your life to satisfy one of the seven deadly sins.

    8. You invite the devil into your relative's life to satisfy your submission to one of the seven deadly sins.

    9. After inviting the devil into your life, you invite the devil into your relative's life or into your acquaintance's life, to satisfy the devil inside you.

    10. You invite the devil into your life to satisfy anxiety, fear, or physical pain of some illness.

    What other ways do you know that you invite the devil into your life? Witting or unwitting?

    Probably the best way is not inviting God into your life

    Yes, this is very interesting too. And I risk to add, that after the devil enters into a person in this way, it will prevent that person from accepting God.

    This can happen to children too, whose parents don't invite God into their lives at an early age.

    I understand the idea that you can invite the devil into your life. But inviting the devil into someone else's life? Don't they have to do the inviting?

    K first of all, Biblically, the only real way to keep the devil out of your life is to be indwelt by the Holy Spirit. This can be found in Luke 11, the unclean spirit thrown out and then going back to the house swept clean, but empty with "seven other spirits".

    Second, the "seven deadly sins" are not actually in the Bible. Yes, they are sins, but lots of things are sins.

    Since what you say is not exactly Biblical, and you give no remedy for "inviting the devil in", I'm not exactly sure where you're getting this information.

    God creates evil as well as good. So God is the devil.

    Since you give so many references to inviting the devil into your relatives lives, I'm guessing you are a religious nut who is having some difficulty of some sort, and is blaming one of your relatives for inviting the devil into your life. Am I right? The devil told me I am right, and he's watching you.
