My Interview With Derek Gilbert From View From A Bunker

I have had a number of interviews since my book I Am Not Afraid: Demon Possession and Spiritual Warfare was released last year. All of these interviews have been a blessing, but I believe two interviewers stand out above all the others. Many of you have already heard my interviews with Todd Wilken of Issues etc. Todd is one of the best interviewers out there and I am thankful for his work. Nevertheless, this Interview with Derek Gilbert stands alongside the Issues Etc interviews as necessary resource for anyone interested in the topic of exorcism and spiritual warfare. I am grateful for Derek’s interviewing skills and his acceptance to not only provide me with the opportunity to talk about my . . . Read All

Another Unhelpful Movie?

A friend of mine sent me the following link for a new movie:

Whenever, these movies come out I try to get out to see them just so I can keep up with the bad theology that people are attributing to how the Church handles the topics of Satan and demons. So I will no-doubt watch the movie when it comes to local theaters. What problems do I have with such movies? They always give the devil more power than he possesses. Yes, it is true that Satan has the ability to do horrific things, but in view of Jesus he is powerless and week. Our reliance must always be on Jesus who has already defeated the devil and . . .

False Doctrine a Sign of The Lie of Satan

It is impossible for human brings to look at apparently supernatural or paranormal events and identify the spirit behind the event except for the context in which the event occurs, and the most important feature in that context is the Word of God. Where false doctrine accompanies the so-called miracle, the spirit behind the miracle is always suspect. -Siegbert W Becket

What about fortune-tellers?

When diviners… claim that their predictions are 75%, this may seem impressive to some people and it may at times be true that some predictions seem to find remarkable fulfillment. Yet a claim such as this is also an admission of error in 25% of cases. even one error would demonstrate that the fortune-teller does not speak for God and does not receive revelations from God. – Siegbert W Becker

How do Lutherans Deal With the Topic of Demon Possession?

Today I had the opportunity to speak on Issues Etc radio. The topic of the conversation was demon possession and spiritual warfare. This topic has received little attention in recent Lutheran conversations, but it remains an important part of Lutheran theology. In this first interview I spoke about the Lutheran Church of Madagascar and how exorcism is an integral part of their evangelistic outreach. For those who are unaware of the Lutheran Church of Madagascar it is one of the fastest growing Lutheran Church in the world with over five million members. Most of the members are converts from the traditional religion of the island which is anamism.

If you are wondering about the relevance of this topic to the . . . Read All

A Recent Exorcism in Indiana

By now many of you have heard of the story from the Garry Indiana area. There have been numerous articles and videos posted on social media the past few days telling the story of a dramatic exorcism.  Is this true or a hoax? I don’t know, but it is getting a lot of attention. Many people are willing to believe in spirits these days and find some excitement when they run across these types of stories.  However, more than ever bad theology is promoted through such stories that in the end causes more harm than good.

I have recently written a short article describing a house exorcism I was involved in a few years ago. If your interested in the . . . Read All

Should We Ridicule The Devil or Not?

Should We Ridicule The Devil or Not?

Anyone who has read the works of Dr. Martin Luther must have noticed that Luther constantly speaks about attacking the pride of Satan or in other words ridiculing him. (See previous blog posts for examples). However, many Christians struggle with Luther’s constant urging to ridicule in light of Jude 1:9’s example of how the Archangel Michael deals with the devil. The texts states:

“But when the archangel Michael, contending with the devil, was disputing about the body of Moses, he did not presume to pronounce a blasphemous judgment, but said, “The Lord rebuke you.”” (Jude 1:9)

So how then do we reconcile these two contradicting points? Indeed, we must always hold to the . . . Read All

The Curse of the Deceased Hunter (The Necromancers Among us)

Recently, I had the chance to enjoy a few days with friends at hunting camp. November in Michigan is deer hunting time for most. Moreover, it is also a time when men get together and talk. Many times the conversation switches to a spiritual nature especially if there are Christians in the group. If Christians are in the minority it is not uncommon for them to take a bashing by the unbelievers, however sometimes the Christians becomes the most sought after commodity among the group. If the Christian happens to be a pastor the questions are sure to come. At times such as these, people tend to pour out their hearts about what they believe looking for encouragement and answers.. . . Read All

Through Exorcism, The Church is Always a Fighting Church

“Through exorcism, the church is always a fighting church at the forefront of the battle and at the same time a church in mission. Forgiveness of sin, liberation from the devil and his kingdom, healing from incomprehensible diseases and escaping from death are no more mere portals and empty words just to comfort someone in difficult times and posture. They become historically real and in the flesh in the life of the person through exorcism.”
—Pastor Joseph Randrianasolo

A Great Book To Read Alongside “I Am Not Afraid: Demon Possession And Spiritual Warfare”

While I am not looking forward to Winter I am looking forward to speaking on the topic of “Spiritual Warfare From A Lutheran Perspective” in January at the J-Term Conference for the Lutheran Brethren Seminary in Fergus Falls, MN.

Recently I was contacted by the seminary and asked if I knew of a man named Clinton E. Arnold. I must admit I had not heard of him and after reading his book, “Powers of Darkness” I was disappointed in myself for not knowing of him. After reading his book I was amazed at the way he dealt with his topic from an exegetical and pastoral perspective.  Why did this amaze me? Because it is so rare to find someone who . . . Read All

If you are seeking an authentic book on spiritual warfare, demon possession, and exorcism, I Am Not Afraid is for you.

I just found this review on my book, I Am Not Afraid: Demon Possession And Spiritual Warfare, on the Web.  You can find this review and many other helpful reviews at the link:
Here is the review:
“Since the publication of this Peer-reviewed CPH title, it has been announced that the church body featured in this book seeks fellowship with the LCMS. That is a good thing. The Malagasy Lutheran Church has many cultural and religious challenges. Still, the Church is growing on this island. The old evil foe isn’t going down without a fight. Evangelists and Pastors there use a simple Luther-like exorcism on the order of: “Depart, unclean spirit and make room for the Holy Spirit.” . . . Read All

I Am Not Afraid Of Death

There are many things in this world that bring us fear and they are all related to sin. Last week I spent a number of days next to a hospital bed with the family of a man. After years of drug addiction the man overdosed for the last time.  The ambulance brought  him to the hospital with little chance of life. After he had remained on life-support for a few days the doctors informed the family that there was nothing they could do for the young man. Their suggestion was hard for the family to hear. They said that it was time to remove the life-support because his organs were shutting down. As you can understand, this was devastating to . . . Read All

Yes, You Have Received an Exorcism…

I am about halfway through leading a book club at my church on the book, I Am Not Afraid: Demon Possession And Spiritual Warfare. It has been a great book club. We have limited it to 25 people to keep the discussion manageable. Those attending include members of the church I serve as pastor, but many people from the community have also joined us for the discussion. The word is getting out about the book and many are becoming interested. Lets face it, it is a strange topic that rarely is spoken about with any coherence in the church today. So what kind of things have been coming up in the book club? I will tell you about one . . . Read All
