Demon Possession: Biblical or Baloney? (22 of 52)
Book of Revelation Series

Some proposed theological scholars tell us there is no such thing as demons, but the Bible tells us that demons were active in the lives of the people during Jesus's time. Jesus cast out demons, spoke to them, and believed in their existence.
