Do you believe in demons?

In the Christian traditions, demons take center stage in numerous biblical stories and continue to chill us today as central characters in popular and religious culture. But do they really exist outside of our imaginations and nightmares? Are demons real, today?

  • Absolutely. They exist today and will until they are cast into the lake of fire at the end of times. Sounds creepy doesn't it? well it is, demons are powerful and can possess those who do not belong to Jesus Christ. They can also tempt and trip up those who do. They are real.

  • Not in the sense that they are purly evil entities controlled by an ultimate evil. I do believe we call lost spirits who are angry and confused demons. They are not purly evil just like no person is purly evil. There are various shades of gray in their souls. They have their own agendas, not controlled by another at all.

  • I do believe that there are malevolent, intelligent, non-human entities that come from other realms. I just have no clue as to what they truly are or even why they are. But I do believe they exist.

  • LOL @ Zoey

    I don't believe demons are real.

  •  I don't think they are 'creatures'. IMO, 'demons' are nothing more than strong negative energy that occurs naturally in the world.

    ^This is an interesting description that I would not have attributed to demons.  I do know that Jesus rebuked demons who possessed many in the Gospels, but were demons that predominant in the OT?

    Yes, demons exist.  I don't 'believe in' them, as in 'have faith in them' but I do know they are real.  They are as real as they were thousands of years ago.

  • The biggest hoax that has ever been done is by Satan in getting people to believe that he doesn't exist.
