2 Misconceptions about Angels and Demons

2 Misconceptions about Angels and Demons

November 13, 2019 1 By William Hollis


I think one misguided belief
about two angels is that idea of every Christian has his or her
own angel. That has led some to speculate
that at the moment there are over 7 billion angels on the
earth. There’s something very strange
about doing quantification like that and it goes well beyond
what Scripture has actually got to say about angels. With regard to demons sometimes
Christians think that the Christian can be demon
possessed. I find that hard to believe when
scripture tells me that the believer is the temple of the
Holy Spirit and so I find it hard to believe that the temple
of the Holy Spirit has another occupant at work as well which
is a demon. That doesn’t mean that demons
can’t oppress the Christian, I think that can indeed happen and
the demons can deceive Christians. That is something that Scripture
tells us, Paul says that we’ve got to be aware of the deceitful
doctrine of demons in 1 Timothy 4, so they can do that seductive
deceiving work.
