May I ask what you witnessed when you witnessed 1 hour long casting out?
I remember once you mentioned woman crawling the wall. Don't know how long the casting out took.
I'd be interested in your response to Hana's question here too. I just read your post and found it surprising given how Naturalistic you tend to be when it comes to creation discussion.
I have considered that often but I do think it happens, not often, or atleast not as much as sometimes people claim. However, my belief in it is for the same reason I believe in miracles.
Usually what I witnessed hasn't been as dramatic as the movies show however there are remarkable things that sometimes happen. But sometimes normal people behave like complete lunatics for a temporary period of time and then be back to their normal selves. Like Hana mentioned me telling her about a possessed woman who literally climbed a brick wall, fell down and broke her spine.
I saw a cousin of mine, literally grabbing my arm with a strength that I didn't think she could muster, talking gibberish, at one point she fell down to the ground, started slithering like a snake, started talking in a man's voice. She talked about things she could not have had known and it reminded me of the spirit Paul drove out from an oracle servant girl who used to earn for her masters in Acts.
However, once my cousin got delivered from this possession, she has never shown any evidence of such. She was fine before as well. Now I like to be the Devil's advocate and say that a lot of this can actually be explained to some degree by the naturalist occurrences, however, some parts are hard to explain and some are just entirely occurring at the same time for no particular reason.
Do you know, of any you'd say may have been possessed, whether any were Christian? I think Christians can be demonically afflicted, but I don't see how it is possible a Christian could be possessed.
