    Yea, I'm not so sure about this case; but to have all three undergo severe psychosis all at once is a pretty heavy blow to the self-delusion theory.

    Anyway, human beings are biological creatures and medication can severely limit what a possible demon can do with it. Kind of like splashing the inside of a computer with water and expecting it to still work at full capacity.

    Yeah, what little information we have about demons suggests that their power is very limited.

    On a related note, other than just to amuse themselves, why do demons bother with possession? I don't see much benefit.

    One theory I've read is that they're essentially parasites. And they can't affect Christians because the Holy Spirit is like boiling water to them.
    If it weren't for the Resurrection of Jesus, we'd all be in DEEP TROUBLE!

    That's interesting. I'd assumed something along the 'if we scare the heck out of people they'll turn away from God' line of thought.

    Any idea where you read it?

    I prefer the scriptural "greater is He that is in you than he that is in the world".

    And Satan and his horde have tremendous power in this world. God allows them to run rampant until His purposes are fulfilled and the kingdom of God comes in it's completeness.

    Playing with ouija boards or anything else along those lines certainly opens people up to demonic influence. And although believers are indwelt by the Holy Spirit we are wise to stay away from such things.

    Well, yes, I agree. Glen Miller just likes to philosophize everything.

    Seems like the opposite would occur. If you knew that demons existed and could possess people, then you know that God exists and can protect people.
