    sin is not following Christ as your Lord and Savior. When you reject Jesus, you reject your only possible means of forgiveness and the only way to gain entrance into heaven. This determines your fate. The one and only person in this world that can save your sins is God therefore, you being a human does not guarantee you anything ( What Is the Unforgivable Sin? ). Throughout history, we can conclude that demons did have sexual intercourse with witches and warlocks in the form of incubi and succubi. A incubi is an evil spirit that lies on persons in their sleep; especially one that has sexual intercourse with women while they are sleeping. A succubus is a demon assuming female form to have sexual intercourse with men in their sleep ( 6. Incubus and Succubus – Sex Demons of the Night ). Incubi and succubi are considered powerful and among some of the highest ranking class for demons. These demons are often referred to “sex demons” and “night demons” for their love to have sexual intercourse with humans. One of the main reasons that demons have this temptation is because they are driven by lust. In my opinion I believe that Dr. Faustus himself can still be saved through his actions and thoughts, after the fact that he had sex with a demon. From that moment on, Dr. Faustus was considered “damned”. His natural desire for knowledge leads to his downfall. Dr. Faustus says in A-text, “My heart’s so hardened I cannot repent.” All of this means that he feels like he wants to…

    experience or prospect. This can also refer to a person or circumstance that is difficult to deal with. From Middle English in the late 13th century deriving from ‘night’ + ‘mære’ which meant ‘incubus’. An incubus was a female evil spirit thought to lie upon and suffocate sleepers.

    Scot deconstructs the condition of being a witch and offers many opinions regarding the effect of witchcraft on the local community and women. Which suggests witchcraft was a by-product of women’s constraint within society. While women were facing every possible negative effect from the witch trials, there were a select few who benefited – those of the church. Bishop Sylvanus escaped a possible rape charge by claiming it was an incubus in the form of himself who had committed the act. Scot,…

    Rather it must attach itself like an incubus to establish historical religious traditions, feeding on their doctrines and sensibilities, and expanding by mutating their theological substance to resemble its own distinctive image. (Smith 51). Christianity stands on the Word of God alone. God needs no help, He knows all, He is all and “All Scripture is God-Breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting, and training in righteousness (2 Tim. 3:16). Juvenilization is a process that…
