  • I'm not saying that demon possession can't happen, but it is very rare. I would say that a lot of those televangelists are trying to boost their ratings and get money, so they do anything for shock value. Bob Larson does demon evictions and if you look at his financial records, he is a little shady. There have been several news reports on him if you just google it. It's a ploy to get money don't listen to that.

  • Most evangalist on TV just want your money. You are not possessed by demons or harrassed. We all have sinned and fallen short of the Glory of God. The great this is is that he died on the cross for the forgiveness of these sins and when we accept God into our life as our Savior we become Christians. What a wonderful God we have!

  • I would think more along the lines that if you were not filled with the HS you'd be empty and/or tempted by sin (maybe he thinks of sin as demons as in the term "fighting our own demons")
