Not to step on any toes, but ive read several posts about Demons, as if they are a bad thing, a true Demon is a Divine Being, a true Demon, (is capable) but will rarely attack or possess a human being. in the rare instance of actual spiritual possession, the Demon was invited to do so or they saw no other alternative.
Negative entities on the other hand, don't care, and can often make one believe it is a Demonic possession.
I have a Demonic Guardian, he would never hurt me or my loved ones, he has helped me over the years more times than I can count. They are teachers, protectors, and allies.
So if your really interested in Demon's do some research, they are not what the neo-pagan and Christian traditions say they are.
Exactly, I Totally agree with you. Demons have been really misunderstooded by religions and beliefs. Many people indeed confuse them to the "negative entities" which are actual entities that want to hurt humans, have negative aura etc. These entities can be Angels as well.
I think the conundrum lies in the term itself and when it is applied. It seems common for people to deem anything that has a grotesque or severely non-human (or non-earthly) appearance as 'demonic'.
For example, Kernunnos is depicted as a hooved man with wild hair and grand antlers. The christian faith would most likely label a being with that appearance as being devil like, evil because it is outside the Christian faith, and therefore a demon. While those of a Druid or Celtic path recognize him as a god of nature and the hunt.
In the end the word 'Demon' or 'Demonic' is a title more than a definition of kindred, so it is ultimately up to the individual if they wish to use that title for any particular being or not.
Personally I only use the title for beings of malicious intent regardless of their form.
