The Reality of Spiritual Oppression

Is spiritual oppression real? Can Christians experience spiritual oppression? Does “deliverance ministry” have a Biblical basis in spite of some of the bizarre or questionable practices associated with it? We cannot deny that Jesus cast out demons as recorded in the Gospels, but what does that mean for today? Although a skeptic myself for many years, I share in this message some experiences involving overt spiritual oppression and then a beginning Biblical basis to help develop a clear theological foundation for ministering to people under spiritual oppression. This is the first in a series of messages on this topic.
