I am a Christian. There is no disputing that fact. The thing is as I'm having children I'm realizing thy may have the same...abilities I had/have.
So far I've taken to ignore my 'power' but it still tickles the back of my mind and I know that it was very strong when I was younger, and becomes strong if I pay attention.
My basic things are, ability to read others memories, read memories from objects, ability to read others hearts (not what they are thinking but what they feel about a subject), Spiritual battle (seeing demons and being able to 'clear' the air so to speak) and a few other randomness I never really tried to hone.
Example, Telling a friend (who was open to me saying it) that he mustn't of had a good relationship with his grandfather. I saw him in a green shed hiding and scared. He says he doesn't remember, but that he stopping going over his grandfathers house when he was about 5, he doesn't know why and he did have a green shed, that was the only thing he really remembered about his grandfathers house.
Also, just meeting a lot of spiritual people who note that I have power, like literally saying to me or just feeling their attention drawn in/ heighten.
The thing is I have pushed this all aside because i don't know how to fit this into Christianity I also don't know if its ok to explore these abilities or if that just leads way to sin. I was raised to believe that ghosts are either recordings on the earth or imprints of emotional energy, but if they are interactive they are demons. (I'm not looking for a debate on this, just background to my belief system.)
The abilities are not always consistent, but I never trained them.
I guess I just don't know what I'm going to do when my son 'sees' what the bad man did, or 'hears' the truth when someone is saying something else.
As a Christian how do I put the two together or can you? Is this just more spiritual warfare?
