Apparitions of the demons and the patristic response
Posted 24 August 2011 - 05:19 PM
Is it not, in our spiritual warfare, good praxis to prepare not only against subtle thoughts and temptations that we are accustomed to being bombarded with all day long, as well as a different tactic the evil one could use at any time such as a seemingly concrete experience that no RATIONAL one would ever expect or admit to for fear of being viewed as a lunatic?
How can something dealt with hevily in patristic and monastic writings of the Orthodox Chuch for 2000 years be so beyond the scope of its forums?

If we are told that the best tactic to use for the mental attacks the demons make is to not pay a lot of attention to them, but simply go on with our life as Christian, I imagine the same would be true for any other type of manifestation.
As for fear of how other people view us, I think that fearing how other people see us or allowing thoughts about what other people might think about us into our minds is one of those things we are supposed to fight against.
