Letter From the Pastor – November 15, 2020

What exactly was, or is, demon possession? How did it happen?  Was it voluntary or      involuntary?  Did it occur through guilt or ignorance or accident?  Are there parallel instances  today? All of these are questions, the answer to which, I do not know.  Yet despite the mysteries, there is one area in which the New Testament communicates clearly and effectively.  It speaks to us about the  tragedy of divided living.
