Many years ago I remember asking a Catholic why their church didn't disembowel a fish for exorcisms like the book of Tobit taught to do for exorcisms.

By dakk:


An interesting note about that portion is that some texts read that Raphael pursued the demon Asmodeus down to Egypt, (which always represents the flesh in typology), and strangled or choked him out there.

What happened to the swine in the Gospel accounts where the demon named "Legion" was cast out into the swine? The swine rushed down a hillside or steep place into the sea, (or lake, Luke 8:33), and were strangled or choked out.

In the parable of the sower, the thorns do the same in those who hear the Word but have thorns in the soil of the heart: the thorns choke out the Word from the soil of the heart, (Mat 13:7, Mrk 4:7, Luk 8:7). And yet the thorns are said to be the cares of this world, the deceitfulness of riches, the riches and pleasures of this life, and the lusts of other things entering in, (Mat 13:22, Mrk 4:18, Luk 8:14).

Tobit 8:1-3 New Jerusalem Bible
1 When they had finished eating and drinking and it seemed time to go to bed, the young man was taken from the dining room to the bedroom.
2 Tobias remembered Raphael's advice; he went to his bag, took the fish's heart and liver out of it and put some on the burning incense.
3 The reek of the fish distressed the demon, who fled through the air to Egypt. Raphael pursued him there, shackled him and strangled him forthwith.
Hearing, believing and trusting the finished work of Jesus Christ on the cross; His death, burial and resurrection for the forgiveness of sins and REPENTING, seals us with that Holy Spirit of Promise - EPHESIANS 1:10-14 KJV - The Lord is not slack concerning His promise. 2 Peter 3:9 KJV - 1 Corinthians 15:1-4 KJV - Ephesians 1:10-14 KJV - Romans 10:9-10 KJV - Romans 10:13 - Romans 10:17 - Ephesians 1:7 KJV - Colossians 1:14 KJV -
