Briefing Outlines

There are many rea­sons why the sub­ject of demon pos­ses­sion is a rel­e­vant subject?of inter­est among Chris­tians. Some of these are:

A. The pop­u­lar­i­ty of east­ern mys­ti­cism and reli­gions, i.e. the New Age Craze.

B. The cur­rent roman­tic view of Native Amer­i­can Indi­an cul­ture and their?animistic reli­gion. (No this is not polit­i­cal­ly cor­rect!)

C. The appar­ent increase in satan­ic rit­u­al abuse vic­tims has prompt­ed Christian?counselors to ques­tion the line of demar­ca­tion between men­tal and spiritual?etiologies.

D. A pro­lif­er­a­tion of deliv­er­ance min­istries has increased the debate among?evangelicals about def­i­n­i­tions, meth­ods, etc.

E. The evan­gel­i­cal press­es are crank­ing out a high vol­ume of lit­er­a­ture on the?subject of demonolo­gy both in fic­tion­al and non-fic­tion­al form. The works?of Frank Peretti are best­sellers. We are now hear­ing of dark angels,?territorial demons, gen­er­a­tional curs­es, trans­fer­ence of spir­its, and warring?in the heav­en­lies.
