    I am asking advice from the pastors who have had experience in this area...

    Today, my son was leading a worship service with Campus Crusade. There is a boy who has attended for a couple of weeks, and my son and his friends are convinced that this boy is demon possessed. This is by the boy's own admission.

    It's really scary, and I don't know how to advise them. If anyone has any advice for them on how to handle the situation, please let me know. I have already advised them to talk to our pastor.

    Thanks, everyone.

    Quick update on the situation:

    My son has decided to merge the Campus Crusade group with the Baptist Student Union so as to have some better, more mature leadership for the group. He feels better about it, and so do I. This was on advice from the pastor.

    Thanks, everyone.

    We have to deal with a lot of that up here, but I really have no long distance advice to give.

    Mature leadership and spiritual maturity are essential in this warfare.

    Amen, Brothers! He was really out of his league. At 19, just didn't have the training or experience to handle this sort of thing.
