No Exorcisms- Just Jesus

I recently read Al Mohler’s comments on the rite of exorcism, and they are very interesting.  His thoughts can be read here.

Albert Mohler, President of the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary

I agree entirely with Dr. Mohler.  If anything, he presents a level-headed view of Christianity that, while acknowledging the power of Satan and the forces of darkness, refuses to bend to the same sensationalism that ignites the ministries of men such as Bob Larson and Neil Anderson, or sells the books of M. Scott Peck.  We as evangelicals need to have a clear grasp on subjects and discussions such as this, or we run the risk of not being able to “provide an answer for the hope that lies within us” (1 Peter 3:15), either to skeptics or fellow believers.

Also, we need to be aware of the perception that skeptics have of us as Christians.  It is far easier to present the message of the gospel in a sane, reasonable way, like Dr. Mohler suggests, when we are not resorting to sensationalism and surrealism in the spiritual realm.  May we all be so sane, respectable, and reasonable representatives of Christ on earth as His body.
