Demon/Spirit Possession: Are They Real?

The 1973 fim "The Exorcist" that catapulted Linda Blair in her acting career still burns in the popular imagination and always ignites the question of demon or spirit posession... We often heard of so many stories, accounts, and even heard it over the news of reported cases of demon or spirit posession... Is there really such thing as "demon/spirit" possession? Are they real or a mere hoax or just a result of psychological disorder on the part of the person alleged to have been possessed? Do you know of any story of "demon/spirit" possession in your place?

In fact I don't believe the ghosts. There are many news about ghosts but I haven't seen the real case yet.

I do believe that it happens. I had witnessed this after the strong earthquake in my city in 1990.

I'm a strong believer that these entities actually exist. I'm a believer but never a fan of these. I'd rather use my time believing that Jesus can save my soul, than think of those nonsense that will never do any good to me.

I don't know of many and I don't honestly think they are real. I feel like back in the day like when "The Exorcist" came out it was more of the psychological disorders and we didn't understand them as well or we didn't want to admit that they were real or something was wrong. Mental disorders are still being misperceived in media today and it is still something that needs to be better researched and the public needs to be more informed about and we need to stop looking down on them as bad or scary things.

@Yes my friend there are so many cases of mental disorder that needs to be research and study upon.

To be honest, I don't know. Sometimes I feel and think they are real while sometimes I am of the strict view that they aren't. I think I am undecided on this subject. I think life will give me the answer to this question in due time.

@mandala100 such stories are a mix of hoax and hysteria.Biblical and medieval posessions were often just misunderstood epileptic seisures

My best friend and I were talking about this yesterday. I think there's so much that happens is unexplaniable and is because of spirits or demons. Some probably has to do with a psychological disorder but with all evil that happens i think theres some kind of demons existing

I do not believe in demon/spirit possession, due to never have encountering any thing like that.

Yes you are right---we either belive or not believe something based upon our own personal experiences.
