Said indirectly or not...I am not casting the gospel to the side. This is a debate forum where we can talk about all sorts of christian biblical applications to life.
THE BLOOD OF JESUS HAS ALREADY BEEN APPLIED IF YOU ARE A BELIEVER.
It's a done deal. The gospel power should now be shown by walking in what we believe. Being a doer...not just a hearer.
Christians are not possessed as in being owned by satan. Anymore than a married woman being raped by a stranger is now owned and no longer married to her husband. But we all know of Christians who have lost control of themselves and have shown signs of a temporary insanity due to fear or hatred. These things are not from God...you are saying that the flesh generated it. Ok, then we have two different ways of looking at this. Your christian mind caused your flesh to sin...or demons talked your christian mind into sinning. Either way...you are still responsible for sinning.
It's the worldly deceptions that satan is responsible for....and that your christian mind accepts unknowingly. So either way you want to look at it, Christians are troubled by their flesh and demons, and need deliverance.
