This morning on the 700 Club, a viewer wrote in and wanted to know if she should get rid of "cursed items" in her home such as "books, CDs, movies, clothes," which the viewer doesn't approve of her five children having, but can't monitor them 24/7.
“I think what is important is, were these objects actually used in some kind of Satanic ritual? Some occult practice? If that’s the case, then there might be some demonic force that attaches to that which was used in pagan worship. In terms of going around and saying this is cursed and that’s cursed, you can drive yourself crazy doing that," explained Robertson (video below).
However, as is often the case, Robertson did not provide any Biblical back-up for his claims.
Robertson's co-host Wendy Griffith claimed that the late pastor Derek Prince had to get rid of paintings that he bought in China "because the Lord spoke to him because they had something attached to them.”
Robertson concurred with a theory about how demons can cause headaches.
“I’ve heard of people who had headaches, they get something from overseas and it looks so beautiful yet it’s actually a deity, a demonic force has attached itself to that,” claimed Robertson.
Interestingly, Robertson's explanation is very similar to the beginning of the film "The Exorcist."
According to Wikipedia:
In Northern Iraq during an archeological dig, archeologist and priest Father Lankester Merrin (Max von Sydow) discovers a small amulet, and after studying it discovers it resembles a statue of Pazuzu, a monstrous demon in the form of a man, falcon, serpent and lion. Merrin then realizes Pazuzu, whom he defeated many years ago, has returned for revenge.
