I'd also tell them that when people say that meditation opens them to their demons, its more a figurative demon than it is a literal one.

Good point.  As they say, ignorance is bliss.
Im not saying that demons do or dont exist.  One aspect of meditation that Ive accepted is the notion of during practice, letting my monsters come and sit down.  In doing that, Im able to see that the monsters in my life actually arent that scary and by welcoming them, instead of pushing them away, Im able to see things more clearly and work things out.
Maybe theyre real spirits or maybe theyre just mental constructs.  At the end of the day, I dont feel that it really matters because my reaction to them and my response for dealing with them is the same.
Its like the old saying goes, "let your thoughts in, just dont serve them tea."

I have talk to a couple of christians about meditation and they say by empty yourself you open yourself up to demons. When I mediate now I question if this is possible or if it is because this form of meditation is not christian so they are against it. It has helped me a lot meditating in my life. Any thoughts on this and how I could respond to christians about this?
Christians should be well informed that when they transform earth into heaven in their daily living with all beings, the aspiration of going heaven is 100 percents. Likewise to zen buddhists that all beings are Buddhas and pureland buddhists that all beings are paradise:))
