I don't know about that.  I'm inclined to simply sit down and read it without trying to fit it into some linguistic theory.  That simply gives me a headache -- Advil anyone?

I think this could be understood in terms of scenario theory in Cognitive Linguistics [1]. FOBOS with a genitive or dative of QEOS, KURIOS, or CRISTOS where the agent-experiencer of FOBOS is Christian is a different "semantic situation" or scenario than the demons fear (FRISSOUSIN) of QEOS, KURIOS, or CRISTOS. Perhaps one could argue that the scenario is the same but the sense is different because the agent-experiencer slot is filled in one case by hostile (unqualified) agent. 

James 2:19 σὺ πιστεύεις ὅτι εἷς ἐστιν ὁ θεός, καλῶς ποιεῖς· καὶ τὰ δαιμόνια πιστεύουσιν καὶ φρίσσουσιν.

James 2:19 SU PISTEUEIS hOTI hEIS ESTIN hO QEOS, KALWS POIEIS· KAI TA DAIMONIA PISTEUOUSIN KAI FRISSOUSIN.
