5.32 Demonic Possession/Exorcism Today

It was true and documented in Scripture that at the time of Jesus demon possession was prevalent, and they entered into and possessed both humans and animals. However, this phenomenon was temporary and localized to the time of Jesus’ ministry, solely in order to demonstrate His authority over the powers and forces of darkness and evil (Satan and his demons). The modern superstition and belief in demon possession today is not Scriptural, nor is the practice of “exorcism.” These are simply fantasies of the imagination of man, which appeal to the gullible and those not well versed in Scripture. The Roman Catholic church and Pentecostal (charismatics) churches in particular are known for this type of sensationalism and superstition practices; but it is simply yet one more of their many false-doctrines/false-teachings, which come from paganism, not the true Christianity of the New Testament Bible. Furthermore, one might rightly conclude that nearly all cases which appear to be “demon possession” today are almost always the result of drug use/abuse. Be not deceived.
