Halloween is one of the most fun childhood events; dressing up and trick-or-treating is a yearly ritual. But lost in the festivities is the possibility of real evil, real ghosts and yes, even real demon possession and infestations. Billy Hallowell takes a modern look at all three in his book, “Playing with Fire.” On this episode of Lighthouse Faith podcast, Hallowell talks about the real-life demon possession of a teenage boy in 1949 that was the inspiration behind the 1973 movie “The Exorcist,” as well as more recent accounts of possessions and exorcisms. While all of it is spine tingling and alarming, what should give us hope and strength is what the Bible has to say about spiritual evil and how it is to be dealt with. Hallowell says modern people may scoff at religion, but still believe in ghosts and the paranormal. And certainly, Hollywood is cashing in on our obsession with the occult. But the Scriptures never take such beliefs lightly and warns about assigning the devil too much power, or too little. In the end, the solution is to “Put on the full armor of God so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes.”
