Title: Four Things to Know About Demons
Speaker: Darryl J. Stalter
Scripture: Matthew 8:28-34
When it comes to demons, people often fall into one of two extremes. One elevates the power of Satan and demons to a form of dualism (being equal with God), seeing them around every corner, behind every sin, and requiring a theatrical power encounter on par with Hollywood films. The other extreme is to dismiss the concept of Satan and demons completely as a primitive concept of mental disorders. Yet, the Bible and Jesus treat demons as real. Our text today suggests that a biblical approach to the demonic is to recognize their existence, but not live in fear of them because our Lord Jesus Christ has power over even the demonic realm.
