The Unpardonable Sin and the Passive Personality By Pam Sheppard

26 Feb

By Pastor Pam Sheppard

In both the Pentecostal and the Charismatic segments of the institutional church, it is  taught that anytime you question any supernatural manifestation as not being from God, but of being from demons, that you were blaspheming the Spirit, which was unpardonable. This is often  used as a fear tactic. Members were made to be afraid to question any supernatural manifestations, because if you doubted one and  you turned out to be wrong, you had just signed your own one-way death warrant.

To be on the safe side, you had to accept any and every manifestation and assume it was from God, in order to err on the side of caution.  Are members barking like dogs? Thrashing about, bumping into each other? Stumbling around, too drunk to walk? Speaking in a foreign tongue that sounds suspiciously similar to the tongues devil-worshipers speak in? “Well, you can’t put God in a box, surely demons could not be present here in a place so full of the anointing, where there is such a feeling of peace, holiness and love, so who am I to say it’s not God? The real deal is I have my doubts but  I don’t want to risk blaspheming the Holy Spirit.” What if some manifestation that happened turned out to really be from the enemy, and you mistakenly thought it was the Holy Spirit? Would that not be just as blasphemous?

Turns out that scripture isn’t even talking about that. Here is my  video that explains the truth about that verse.

Guilt Ridden, Passive  Personalities are At Risk

It appears that religious demons that specialize in accusing and condemning their prey, tend to target a certain personality type to get their point across. Since I am rarely   attacked in this way, my personality type is usually overlooked with this strategy. However, I have discovered in my work with people of various personality types  that accusation, condemnation and legalism seem to be the most effective demonic strategy of choice for those  who thrive off of self punishment and passivity.

The religious demon is an anti-Christ spirit whose nature is totally opposite that of the Almighty God. The religious demon usually works through a voice; the voice of condemnation. The voice constantly tells you how much of a failure you are. It tells you how your heart is not right with God and you are never going to be saved. It tells you that if you don’t read your Bible every day, and do all kinds of religious works, that you are going to hell. It also tells you that you have blasphemed God and also that you have committed the unpardonable sin.

To sum it up,  the voice or the thought  basically tells you that you’re never good enough. EVER. and the passive personality type believes it.

This is the exact opposite nature of God.  The religious demon’s strategy is to tear down rather than build up. With condemnation and accusation, religious evil spirits  uses the letter of the law to lay heavy burdens on its prey  so as to crush you.

Here is an example of an email that was sent to me recently:

I was reading through your website and I have looked over your books and I just wanted to say that I think you are a stupid Anti-Christ bitch. That is MY take on you.  If what you are telling people is God, there is no point existing here.  You are a servant of evil.

The demon using this person does not realize that this kind of thing does not affect me.

Just a  week before, I had declined to accept a particular man’s case.  Immediately,  I received  threats along with being called  “an absolutely hideous fucking bitch.” Actually, the man’s reaction to my refusal to accept his case served as justification that I made the right decision.   That is all it did.

A few days later, I receive another email, , supposedly from a friend of the man  I refused. “She”  informing me that the man had  committed suicide late that night.  “She” wrote  “give yourself a big pat on the back for the despicably wicked part you played in his death. You treated him like shit and now he is gone!”

Really???? I did not know the man.  All I know of him was what he wrote about himself  in a few emails.  I  never laid eyes on him and we live in different countries, yet I am suppose to accept  full responsibility for his life and his death? Paleese.  No way do  I accept that kind of  responsibility and guilt.  Seems  the evil spirits involved with this man  ought to know me better than THAT!!!!

My point is this.

I don’t receive accusation or guilt from  the devils and demons.  As a born again person for 38 years, one of my favorite scriptures is “there is no condemnation to those who are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh but after the Spirit. (Romans 8:1)  My spirit led me to know that this man is trouble that I needed to avoid. I have no malice toward him because I recognize that religious evil spirits   have spoken  to me through his mind and have used his  hand to write  those emails.  For we wrestle not against flesh and blood but principalities and powers.  Yes ,I could be wrong that he played the role of himself and two fictitious others,  but because of the  timing and the similarity  of the  religious style and subject of  each email,   I suspect that ONE person sent all 3 emails from 3 different email accounts.  Also, I have been online since 2002.  No one has sent me emails as despicable as this in 13 years, and in one week I get 3 of them???? So since a  likeminded email was sent  less than a week AFTER the alleged suicide, I suspect that this man  is very much alive.  However, if he killed himself for real, then he knows today that what I speak is truth.

So  whether or not  the man actually  killed himself, neither  his life or his death have ever been in MY hands!  I do not personally  take responsibility for the actions of others, nor do I consider myself the Savior of the world. I am not egotistical enough to think that just because I politely  refused to take on   a case,  that a man killed himself. In fact,  I make it very clear to all clients early on  that if you tell me you are suicidal, I will immediately refer you to the local mental health facility in your community and  close your case or not open it in the first place. I have a right and a professional responsibility to refuse the case of anyone who I suspect is not going to be cooperative or responsive to deliverance counseling. In fact,  it  is beyond my professional scope  to work with delusional or suicidal people. One good reason why I don’t receive accusation and the subsequent guilt that follows is that  I rarely  override my own personal and professional  boundaries. In other words, I don’t bite  off more than I can chew.

Since God divinely blessed us all  with a  free will and a sound mind,  I am responsible for my actions and   you are responsible for yours.   What is it about some people that predisposes them to  condemnation from a religious demon yet it has rarely happened to me in all these years? Nevertheless, this recent attack was needful as it  has been enlightening on several levels. Foremost, it has shown me that  the only vehicle for communication the enemy has with me these days is  by email. My dreams are shut down, they cannot speak to me in the spirit nor give me a vision. Also,  I am careful who I allow into my personal space.

Apparently an unfamiliar  evil spirit has come on the scene who is ignorant of the fact that I am not susceptible to being manipulated and controlled by  demonic accusation, guilt and condemnation .Furthermore,  I won’t dignify any accusations with  defensive, guilt-ridden excuses covered by  of “I am so sorry” or please forgive me,  when I have done no wrong.

You must learn to do the same.

Toxic Religion and the Fear of Hell

3 Dec

By Pastor Pam Sheppard

The “fear” of not being saved/born again is a tactic used by evil entities to capture and keep the individual in bondage.

The methods are numerous. A popular one is preaching or teaching on Hell – then giving the altar call afterwards to scare up a conversion.  The evil entities will play on the individuals’ emotions, and fill their minds with such fearful thoughts,  that they can not rightly think or reason for themselves. Many misunderstand and are motivated by what seems like a desire for God, but when you look closely at the roots of their experience,  it is out of fear of going to Hell that produces a surface “desire” for God which birthed a false conversion that came through the underhanded work of a religious fallen angel.

The doctrines of original sin and eternal damnation are true.  Yet  the way those doctrines are preached have caused  tremendous psychological distress, forcing folk into  to a  double bind. The duality is that they are judged  as  guilty and responsible and face eternal punishment, yet they  have no ability to do anything about it. In fact, they cannot even stop sinning altogether because they  are not really saved. so the captives to this dilemma  continue to confess and be forgiven, hoping that they have met the criteria despite a  complete lack of feedback about whether they  will actually make it into heaven.
 Were you led to God because of fear of hell? The psychological damage does not go away overnight. In fact, because this sort of indoctrination in young childhood is so powerful, the fear of hell can last a lifetime despite rational reasoning. Likewise the damage to self-esteem and basic self-trust can be crippling. This is why there are so many thousands of walking wounded – people accused and condemned by  a religious demon., aka the spirit of the Anti-Christ.
Deep down, the fear makes it that much harder to actually LOVE, or even LIKE, the God they  are supposed to love in order not to  go to this horrible place of eternal torture.

It’s like a catch-22.If You DON’T love God with all your heart, soul, and mind,  the teaching strongly implies that you are going to this horrible place. Yet just the fact of having to force yourself to conjure up feelings of love under threat of torture, makes it IMPOSSIBLE to do. All  such captives to this form of toxic religion can  do is bury those feelings & deceive themselves. – So spiritual deception becomes a spiritual defense  mechanism to keep them  alive, because  if they  really comprehended the dilemma placed in front of them, how could they NOT end up in a mental hospital?  One must have  strong, sound mind to withstand the accusation, condemnation, guilt and shame that religious demons act upon such captives on a daily basis.
This is spiritual abuse. Torture, in fact. Toxic theology, at its best.

So what is the answer?

Live your life.  Do not listen to such preaching.  We are not to preach hell but we are to preach the cross and the resurrection of Jesus Christ of Nazareth.  If you have been chosen by God,  you belong to God even on your most sinful day.  Before you die, He will come for you, even if its at your death bed. The Holy Spirit  needs less than 5 seconds to save you and snatch you out of the devil’s hands.

Also know that the true  desire for God comes from God.  We are ALL sinners and the scriptures reveal that none of us would desire Him on our own for any reason.  So if you desire God because you are afraid of hell, then you have not heard from God. God does not hand out spirits of fear and torment to His people.  So if you are in fear, you have not heard from God.  Also what that tells me is that you believe more in hell than in the God who created the place, not originally for us, but for Satan, fallen angels and demons.  Satan and demons are not IN hell—at least not yet.

If you truly desire God, then He put that desire in you.  He has given you the desires of His own heart.  And once He  has given you a desire for Him, He will cause you to be born again. Read how He does it from the prophet Eziekiel:

Ezekiel 36:25-27New American Standard Bible (NASB)

25 Then I will sprinkle clean water on you, and you will be clean; I will cleanse you from all your filthiness and from all your idols. 26 Moreover, I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit within you; and I will removethe heart of stone from your flesh and give you a heart of flesh. 27 I will put My Spirit within you and cause you to walk in My statutes, and you will be careful to observe My ordinances.
