Yesterday's teaching on the realm of the demonic brings up all kinds of questions and issues. It's incredibly damaging to teach on this subject in any way that ties all physiological and psychological difficulties to the realm of the demonic. We live in a physical world, and there are physical issues that are often the culprit or source of our problems. On the other hand, it's equally damaging to assign every physical pathology a purely physical source, when the reality is that our bodies are deeply intertwined with our spirits and souls. Thus the realm of the demonic can come into play. When our lives are bound up by addiction, anger, bitterness, hatred, lust - when our mode of coping with trials is escape from reality AND escape from God (be it into the realm of sex, drugs, sport, shopping, eating, TV etc. etc.) - we can suspect more is in play than just a pure biological imbalance.
A balanced approach, it would seem, would address both the spiritual and the physical when there are maladies to be addressed. Sleep disorders, strange pains, irrational fears, and more, need not only physical/psychological addressing - they need spiritual involvement. It's possible (though not necessarily true) that there is spiritual component to the affliction. Are you interested in learning more? I would suggest this book. I would add that someone once said "to a man with a hammer in his hand, every problem is a nail." I think this is Anderson's problem, so you need to realize that he overstates his case. But the principles of confessing sin, and standing in the truth of our identity in Christ are foundational to both our maturity and freedom in Christ.
What are your thoughts regading the realm of demons, and life in Christ?
