    Certainly, exorcisms are performed. Sometimes, they bring about healing, too. Does that mean demons are real? Not necessarily: It could be that exorcism triggers a shift of belief in a person with a mental disorder.

    My own view is in the hub Healing Demonic Possession, Mental Illness, and Similar Challenges. It suggests that there are multiple worldviews on the nature of mental illness and demonic possession, and how it can be treated.

    Yes exorcisms are most certainly real. Are the ones performing the exorcisms real is my question?

    I don't see any proof of exorcisms that I can't replicate with a crazy person, some medication, and some flashy illusions so no. Now Houdini's ghost, that's something.

    Yes, but the vast majority of the cases people believe to be demonic possession are simply undiagnosed mental illness. Many people have been killed by "exorcists" who were just charlatans looking for power. Real possession often looks like nothing you'd expect, and exorcism shouldn't be performed by just anyone carrying a Bible. There are effective exorcists from a variety of faiths as well.

    Yes. I do believe it is real. Though we are unable to see proof in scientific terms but I truly believe of its existence.

    Yes exorcism is a real need at times.    The problem is that many times they make a game of it and that is extremely dangerous.   It is a serious matter and should not be played with.  It should only be done by those that know how to deal with evil spirits scripturally and are Spiritually equipped for the job at hand

    Hey Ronilo, good question you asked; the answer is yes. Exorcism's are real as well as demons. Now of course sometimes mental illnesses are mistaken for a type of demonic possession and this often times leads the so called possessed individual to greater harm than help, but it can go the other way as well. Many times people are mistaken to having mental illnesses when really they have a bigger problem consisting of demons within and at that time the individual needs spiritual, godly attention rather than medical. Jesus cast out many demons in his day and it continues on through these days as well. The main points of diagnosing an individual as having a demon is by key words and certain actions that lead to the conclusion of a demonic possession. Certain key words are Jesus, Jehovah and the Holy Spirit. The best way of using these key words in action is having the individual follow through with an out loud prayer, which at this point if any of the key words trigger a manifestation that is more unlikely not the individual or a bi polar condition, then the individual most likely has demons and should be treated and examined closely after the conclusion.
