The Bandlet of Righteousness

Season 4, Ep. 12

Christians have created numerous artifacts and and icons in order to help ensure that they get into heaven, but none are as mysterious as the Bandlet of Righteousness (lefAfa Sedeq), the Ethiopian Book of Life. In this episode, JJ runs through the tradition and incantations that make up this amazing work, compares it to protection scrolls created by Ethiopian Orthodox priests that use demonic energy to fuel God's will, and demonstrates some of the aspects that truly make this work magical.

  • 13. Trapped in Fear & Fire

    32:49
    Welcome to the final episode, lucky number 13, of season 4 of Southern Demonology. Not only does JJ detail some of the goodies that season 5 will offer, but he also presents an interview with the listener Elizabeth who goes over how she was underneath the dominion of demonic oppression for decades and how hearing Father Birdsong's iteration of "God is not angry with you" helped her to recognize the predicament and break the cycle. This is definitely a heart wrenching episode that will highlight the depths that the infernal can plunge a person before one can even realize it due to its slow, insidious nature.Find all of Southern Demonology's social links and information at https://www.southerndemonology.com

    39:03
    Not only does this episode of Southern Demonology continues with the final part of my conversation with Father Birdsong and his son Deacon Josh on the Do's and Don'ts of Exorcism, but it also comes with the very first EVP (Electronic Voice Phenomena) ever captured on this podcast. And it could not be more chilling or disturbing, especially to me as it was captured on my own audio line.
  • 10. Exorcisms Do's and Don'ts, Pt I

    39:40
    While recording an episode of the other podcast to which JJ belongs, the Paranormal Rundown, Father Birdsong recommended having a show dedicated to the Do's and Don'ts of Exorcisms, and I could think of nothing better. What follows is the first part of the conversation wherein we discuss a few of the principles that Father Birdsong outlines in addition to an anecdote from JJ's own life where he demonstrates exactly what one should NEVER do. Father Birdsong has started his own podcast entitled Ending the Curse.

    01:01:46
    Dear Southern Demonology listeners: JJ would like to introduce Dr. Bert. He is a medical doctor and psychiatrist from the Netherlands who has been practicing in the field from more than a decade. He agreed to speak to us about several different items. Namely, JJ wanted his input on the movie Nefarious and how was the field of psychiatry was represented in his professional opinion. But that was only the entrance to the doorway as in this conversation, we bounce from that to multiple personality disorder (or the more modern term dissociative personality disorder), to the nature of evil, some of the cases that he has dealt with which exhibit at least mortal evil, and finally some of the more paranormal experiences that he has encountered.Get access to all of Southern Demonology's links at https://www.southerndemonology.com
