What is Christian Demonology?

Christian Demonology differs from the typical demonology you see on film and television. Christian demonology teaches that demons are Satan and his fallen angels – angels who along with Satan rebelled against God. Christian demonology helps us to be aware of Satan, his minions, and their schemes. Further Satan and his demons now desire to deceive and destroy all those who follow and worship God.

Christian demonology and it’s followers hold to the belief that a Christian cannot, in fact, become demon possessed. Primarily that what we would normally call “possessed” is, in fact, repression – the idea of influence. Considering the fact that Satan “walks about like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour” (1 Peter 5:8) and knowing that he is not omnipresent, it is logical to assume that he would send his demons to do his work in this world.

A key Scripture related to Christian demonology is 2 Corinthians 11:14-15, “And no wonder, for Satan himself masquerades as an angel of light. It is not surprising, then, if his servants masquerade as servants of righteousness. Their end will be what their actions deserve.”.
