Fear of children from a spiritual perspective?

From a spiritual perspective, what are the root causes of an irrational fear of children? I believe it has to do with ghosts because they share a similar energy pattern.

Has anyone else had this problem?


Fear of children. e.g. fear of being around them.

Update 2:

Fear of children is a phobia. That fear of children. Not the discipleneans or whomever.

    When you say a fear of children, do you mean being afraid of children? Or do you mean a fear that children have?

    Thanks for clarifying.

    I am a born again Christian. I believe irrational fears are very often the result of some occurrence in your life - likely in your childhood, that made you vulnerable to a spiritual attack. Satan is no respecter of persons, and he attacks even the very young if he can. Sometimes a child is laying in its crib, and a family pet like a cat leaps into the bed when no one is around. The child realizing its vulnerability is terrified, and becomes victim of a spirit of fear. This is manifested years later by a seemingly irrational fear of cats. This is just one example. Demons are real, and vary as much in power and effect as animals vary in the physical realm. They inveigle themselves into the human personality and avoid detection by deceiving the person to believe that "they" are "me". The first step in deliverance is identifying and exposing them. You need to realize that we have no power over Satan or evil spirits on our own. It is the name of Jesus that we must rely upon. In Luke 10:17-20 we read "And the seventy returned with joy saying, "Lord even the demons are subject to us in your name!" And He said to them, "I was watching Satan fall as lightening from heaven. Behold I give you authority to tread on serpents and scorpions and over all the power of the enemy, and nothing shall by any means hurt you. Nevertheless do not rejoice in this, but rejoice that your names are written in heaven"

    So the first issue is: Is your name written in heaven?

    Have you received the Lord Jesus Christ as Savior and acknowledged Him as Lord? Do you believe in your heart He died for your sins and rose again from the dead? Do you believe He is the Divine Son of God? Without starting there, you won't get very far. If you believe these things, you need to confess faith in Him, turn from your sins, and accept the free gift of forgiveness He offers. Only know that you in turn must forgive all who have offended you. Once you have done this, God will give you the witness in yourself that you are forgiven and accepted as a child of God. This is the beginning. Now, being in a state of right relationship with God, you are in a place where you can resist the devil and his demons, and prevail. James says "Submit yourself therefore unto God, resist the devil and he will flee from you." (James 4:7)

    If you stand your ground in faith, God will give you the victory. You can address this fear as a person, speak to it in the name of Jesus, and command it to leave you. Stand firm in faith, don't back down, and trust God to back you up. His power will get the job done - not yours.

    You need to also cultivate a life of prayer and reading of the Scriptures - the Bible. Start with the New Testament and ask God to teach you. Pass over the things you don't understand for now. Understanding comes with time. Get connected with a Church that teaches the Bible is the Word of God.

    I hope you can receive this. If this all seems strange to you, that is not unusual, but I know what I'm talking about. I have lived for 36 years as a Christian, and been through alot, but live today in abiding peace and a living knowledge of God. Email me if I can be of any help.

    Peace to you, in Jesus name.

    There is a group of people in the world that share a common sense of hatred towards children.

    These people call themselves disciplereans, but they are abusive and premote smacking/spanking and abusive discipline.

    These people have a massive influence on polital systems and of the way laws are passed through the parliment on the use of abuse.

    The word, 'Rascal', 'Runt', 'Brat', 'Insubordinate child' are words that they tend to use and they dress in old fashioned clothes, behave in old fashioned ways, claim to be old fashions; so they hate computers, the metric system and human right laws.

    This is the fear of children that I know of and it is a serious crime.

    a fear of children is not sustained by God, so don't be surprised when it disappears one day.
