How is the "Jinn," or demons, viewed by Judaism, Christianity & Taoism?

  1. I think that “jinn” is actually an Arabic word.
    In Judaism, demons are called Shaidim. (sigular: Shaid). I don’t know so much about them, but they are basically malevolent spirits. They aren’t like the Christian concept of demons as creatures that rebel against God and premote evil- spirits don’t have free will. I don’t know what their purpose is.
    Accordingt to legend, King Solomon had control over the demon king Ashmodei.
    Sorry if that’s not exactly comprehensive, but it’s all I know.

  2. Demons in Judaism are called shadim and exist in a state between human and angel. They can procreate and die but that is where their resemblance to humans ends. They do not have free will and function to perform actions as directed by God. There ar eno free willed demons in Judaism, no rebellious angels or such- in Judaism only Humans have free will and angels/shadim/other powers are beings without free will, and unable to disobey or rebel, but merely to make sure the world runs according to God’s will.

  3. the QURAN ALSO STATES THAT KING SOLOMON , MAY PEACE BE UPON HIM, HAD CONTROL OVER THE JINNS ETC TRYING TO GET MORE DETAILS
