Czy egzorcyzmy są potrzebne?
Do they be wanted exorcism?
Languages of publication
The possibility of demon possession is rejected by many people today. All abnormal behaviors are attributed by psychiatrists to mental illnesses. This is an error. From the theological point of view, possession is possible, because the devil’s activity was not completely blocked by the saving work of Jesus. The Bible testifies to this. In turn, psychiatry is not only unable to cure certain mental ailments, but cannot even explain their origin. What is more, it is not able to explain the relationship between a given person and the unnatural occurrences which happen around him or her. Mental illness and demon possession are two different things. One can be released from possession only by way of exorcism, asking Jesus Christ for the grace of liberation. This is confirmed by the practice of the Church right from apostolic times.
