Following from the last question, "perfect possession" describes a state in which a person not only freely invites a demon to posses him, but also cooperates, with full consent of the mind and will, in the demon's malicious desire to destroy God's Kingdom and children.  Some think that this type of human malevolence is not possible, but they are sorely mistaken.  Of this frightening phenomenon, Malachi Martin writes:

          "As the term implies, a victim of perfect possession is absolutely controlled by evil and gives no outward indication, no hint whatsoever, of the demonic residing within.  He or she will not cringe,              as others who are possessed will, at the sight of such religious symbols as a crucifix or a Rosary.  The perfectly possessed will not bridle at the touch of Holy Water or hesitate to discuss                        religious topics with equanimity."


We may never know why people so perfectly surrender themselves to the source of all evil, but the fact of  the matter is that there are people whose lives are just as given over to the promotion of the Kingdom of Darkness as ours are in promoting the Kingdom of Light.
