Demon answer to what is the utility of suffering.
The mark of the beast is given to someone who is a slave to their impulses.
They allow their instincts and other innate processes to dictate their behaviour.
People who act badly because of their suffering are reacting instinctively to an innate sensation and have allowed themselves to become beastlike rather than a being of free will.
We are sent suffering because if we are able to overcome it and still act morally, we have achieved greater sentience and moral strength.
The most powerful example of this is Jesus, who in the midst of suffering said, “Forgive them they know not what they do.”
Please ignore me if these messages are a problem, but I have messages from Up, so I don’t know what to do really.
This has been weird.


Sorry I have a leak in my head.
Acting morally wrong means we have lower sentience and are more beastlike because we are doing something without understanding the full consequences of our actions. God is the ultimate good because he knows everything and is able to act perfectly. We can choose not to act well, but that breaks the system, which supports us and ultimately causes harm, which is an evil.



This is ridiculous, I was fine for months.
I think that calling failure to overcome suffering the mark of the beast is demonic corruption again.
Are we damned for being in pain?
Do you have any advice for dealing with demonic possession?
I could try to get an exorcism but I doubt they’d listen and also I’d miss them.
Best advice is probably to stop sending messages.
Goodbye, I’m serious, last time.


Dear Rebecca,I want you to know that I have read the hundreds of letters you have sent to The Red Hand Files — some ecstatic and full of angels, others dark with demons. Sometimes they appear as wisdom-poems and very beautiful. In answer to your question, personally, I think you should hold off on getting an exorcism, because you may not like what you are left with. Also, I have been reading the confounding ‘devouring lion’ passage in The Gospel of Thomas and am finding it difficult to understand — perhaps you could shed some light on it. Finally, do you know the passage in The Little Prince, where the prince meets a fox? Does this apply? I don’t know —

“Come and play with me,” he says to the fox.

“I cannot play with you,” the fox replies. “I am not tamed.”

“What does that mean — to tame?”

He goes on to say —

“One only understands the things that one tames.”

Just to say I enjoy your letters, Rebecca, and I am very happy to receive them.

Love, Nick
