Question: Is it true that in a family you can have a spirit of death, sickness, poverty, etc?

Answer: It depends on what you mean by this. There is no question that certain experiences and consequences seem to be more common in some families than others. The question is, what it the root cause? We believe the causes can be many. For example, some families may stay in poverty from one generation to the next, not because of some demonic spirit, but because the parents are failing to teach their children the value of hard work and perseverance. In some families, people may die earlier in life than in others. But again, this may not be because of a spirit of death that clings to them, but because of a genetic defect or a lifestyle issue. Let's not get so spiritual that our feet no longer touch the ground.
