Yes, I'm speaking of demon possession. Can/do such things actually happen today? Were the instances described in the Bible actual possessions or was possession the best way the writers had of describing mental illness or epilepsy? If such things can occur today, does the Bible give any instruction on how to recognize such? And how would such be dealt with? I am not just curious, but have reasons for my questions and just don't buy the whole exorcism thing practiced by the Catholics.
