White Horse Inn: Conversational Theology

The Pervasive Influence of Darkness

When we start talking about spiritual warfare, we immediately think of the serpent in the garden, of New Testament confrontations between Jesus and the demon-possessed, and of chaotic exorcisms depicted in TV and movies. But what kind of power does Satan have, and what are we supposed to do about it? On this episode of White Horse Inn, Justin Holcomb, Bob Hiller, and David Cassidy trace the biblical encounters with Satan and consider how he works today, reminding believers to be alert but not afraid.

QUOTE:

“We talked about how one of the primary titles for the devil is a murderer, which doesn’t just mean violent death, but is also an assault on anything that exudes life. So when you look at another person and you dehumanize them, whether it be in a sexual manner or any other sort of exploitive manner, that is a reflection of the image of Satan, not an image of God.”
