Exorcisms and possessions

Are they real?

History

The Bible has many references to exorcisms and possessions. It has Scriptures of Jesus and his disciples talking about exorcisms and performing them. The Catholic Church has spoken about demonic possessions for centuries. Throughout the Catholic Churches history, Exorcism has been used as needed. And they are still performed today.(Catholic Essential)

Theories

Some people think that possessions could be psychological disorders (Sheehan, 2014). There are many psychiatric conditions that cause the same symptoms and behaviors that are blamed for demonic possession(Schoen, 2011). The belief that demons exist and possess people is one of the most widely held religious beliefs in the world(Radfor, 2013).
