There’s nothing to drive out but the humanity. VJack has a sad story to tell.
If you think it’s just an isolated story and that exorcisms are an odd little superstitious relic that only wackos on the fringe fuss over, Nick Matzke brought this odd account from JP Moreland to my attention:
Recently, a hairdresser was arrested for performing cosmetic surgery on several “patients.” When this happens, the results are usually disastrous. Do fraudulent “surgeries” mean there are no legitimate cosmetic surgeries? Of course not.
Recently, a man and woman were caught trying to exorcise a demon from a little child in Arizona. The police found the three covered in blood inside a barricaded bedroom. The man died upon arrest. Do fraudulent, ignorant “exorcisms” imply that demons aren’t real and all exorcisms are bogus? You do the math.
A vast literature supports the reality of demons…
And if that isn’t enough for you, here’s an article recounting various demonic events at Biola. It’s a real eye-opener: these people are nuts.
Note that J.P. Moreland is a Distinguished Professor of Philosophy at the Talbot School of Theology at Biola University. People, don’t send your children to Biola. It’s like shipping them off to some empty wasteland and asking them to get educated by random goat-herders.
