Since we are hopelessly snowed in, TV has become a companion of mine. Yesterday we watched some fairly controversial, yet interesting programs on demon possession and exorcism.
A comparison was made on one of these about the difference between how the U.S. views spiritual warfare compared to countries that have been more conditioned to understand the spiritual realm.
One preacher made the point of the effectiveness, or lack of it, based on our belief systems and how many in the west tend to ignore the devil, which seems to suit satan just fine.
I am interested to know what others believe and if anyone has thoughts on why America is lagging behind in this ministry?
Do you think average Christians in America are afraid? Do these Christians not believe in deliverance ministries?
My concerns are that I see our country going downhill quickly and I wonder if it is because we are spiritually void? Those in satanism and other cults seem very devoted to their religion and work. Some seem to have more dedication than many Christians do.
Any thoughts? I would appreciate more understanding in this area and I read somewhere on these forums that there are those involved in spiritual warfare and deliverance ministry. I would really like to hear about your experiences.
Yours in Jesus Christ, covered in His Blood and blessed by Him,
