Interesting but no break through. Aug 22, 2008
I bought this hoping to get a break through with some over eating. This book was entertaining and had good stories but no personal break through came from reading this book as I had hoped.
Deliverance from Fat and Eating Disorders May 20, 2008
Bill Banks led a deliverance ministry in a backroom of a Christian bookshop, and often helped people with spiritual problems relating to weight. He gives many examples of people he helped, starting with Mary. Mary, the wife of a young pastor wanted deliverance from an eating problem. Every time she tried to slim down for the summer season, she went berserk and ate absolutely everything in sight. Banks was able to discern there was an evil spirit 'of the fear of starvation' that entered as an infant. As a baby she developed a fear of starving because her mother had an insufficient milk supply. This fear lay dormant as a child until Mary tried to diet as an adult. She was afraid she would go hungry so ate like crazy. Since his first encounter with the spirit, Banks has seen it various times affecting other people. He also discovered this evil spirit can enter someone as an adult.
Bill gives a list of several reasons people are overweight including spiritual reasons and emotional ones. The author also talks about the importance of self-control, which he says is probably the most unpopular fruit of the spirit.
The book has three helpful appendixes on `weight control tips', `power scriptures' and `index of spirits encountered'. However the page numbers in the index don't correspond to the actual page numbers in the book! Some of the stranger spirits Banks encountered were `fear of dying in captivity in a foreign land', `feeding hate', `little girl spirit', and `murder'. He discovered spirits are often inherited from parents or there is a second spirit of the same problem. He also observed that the spirit of gluttony was often suspected but it was actually another spirit.
A really interesting book, that opens your eyes to the possibility not all excess weight is caused naturally but can be caused by demons!
