Well I feel I can contribute to this part of the conversation.

I often have "other worldly" thoughts or "demonic" thoughts. Does that mean I am myself demonic? Or that I am going to transform into a winged demon and ditch my flesh prison to eat the delicious hearts of the courageous?
No matter how much I may want to (only because hearts are all muscle, high protein, iron, and with my daily dose of warrior spirit) that does not mean I am going to, or that it will happen.

Look your thoughts do not determine who you are or what you are. Your actions do a better job at that. (sometimes the lack of action) If you manipulate your mind to believe you are a demon and that all your thoughts must be like what you perceived a demon would think, then you will ruin yourself. You will believe you are a demon and you will either get put in the crazy house, be depressed because you are stuck being in a human body and your life did not change at all now that you are a demon or a real demon might find it fun to see where this goes. (that is not a positive thing)
Notice there were no positive results for manipulating your mind to believe you are a demon.

Whether I make sense or not just continue believing you are normal and life is more likely to be safe.
If my life is worthless then death must be my currency to spend.

Another risk i see with separating thoughts we experience as 'MINE' and 'OTHER' is that we are basically setting up conditions for split identity.

I wonder if there is also a risk of paranoia because we start to become suspicious of our own thoughts. Everything we think and feel will be tainted by the feeling of suspicion and doubt.
Next thing is we will see Demonic activity everywhere.

Hopefully, someone's English or his typing is bad.  Keanz, people have the right to choose to                                                                                                                                                     obey God's rules or not, it's called Free-Will. God sees the acts of disobedience as sin. The angels that  chose to go against God and was changed to demons had the same free-will.
Sorry but what i was to say is a christian diobeying god

I could have sworn not all demons were fallen angels, though I could be wrong. I dont know, Ive just always put demons and fallen angels into different categories because not all demons display the kind of power fallen angels possess.

i separate them as devils and demons, other pantheon based cultures have them as major and minor spirits and other cultural references.

demons can be any silly spirit with malicious intent whether an internal or external manifestation, devils are those with the original and actual power to influence humanity( "fallen angels" ie.); the really scary dudes and then Gods are an entirely different level of being, they created it all.

we're the only ones with the breath of God in our lungs, why worry about the jealous half siblings?
