Confessions is my first person account of how I was physically occupied by demons after I received a spirit claiming to be Jesus and of the spiritual warfare that followed as I struggled to survive. I include actual excerpts from the daily journal I kept during the first five months of the battle. I also devote a chapter to the biblical evidence that a Christian can have demons, that is, be demonized. Other chapters on the means I used to survive and thrive will be helpful to those who have become occupied or even possessed by demons. And those in Christian ministry will find this book helpful in ministering to those afflicted by demons. In addition, I include an appendix on how to avoid the hazard of demonization or occupation by demons, a phemen likely to increase given the re-Paganization of Western Europe and America. This section includes the spiritual counterfeits such as apparitions of dead relatives that demons use to deceive and enter the spiritually unwary.
Author David Haddon first exposed in Christianity Today (Dec. 1973) Maharishi Mahesh Yogi's deceptive presentation of Transcendental Meditation (TM) as non-religious to get it into public schools. Haddon also wrote InterVarsity Press's booklet on TM (1974) and co-authored the book, TM Wants You! (Baker, 1976). In addition, he has published articles on subjects ranging from quantum mechanics to the rescue of Jews in Le Chambon, France. His articles have appeared in journals and newspapers including National Review, Learning, American Spectator Online, Celebrate Life, The Trinity Journal and, most recently, his essay on the surprising morality of Jack London's To Build a Fire in Touchstone, January/February 2012. His degrees include a BS in Engineering from UC Berkeley and an interdisciplinary MA in Politics and Literature from the University of Dallas.
