Demons and evil spirits are as real as you or the seat you are sitting on. God speaks of them repeatedly in the Holy Bible as actual spiritual beings, not imaginary, allegorical, or metaphorical, but real. For example Jesus spoke to the demons in the maniac with a Legion: Come out of this man, you evil spirit! Mk. 5:18 Holy Bible NIV God's Word says the demons, not the man, replied: The demons begged Jesus, 'Send us among the pigs; allow us to go into them.' Time and again we see Christ address demons as distinct from the person they possess, because they are individual spiritual personalities. They exist today just as in Bible days. Their reality and activity is plain to all except those blinded by Satan.
