VFTB 185: Demon Possession and Spiritual Warfare

Rev. Dr. Robert H. Bennett
Rev. Dr. Robert H. Bennett

WE MAY have reached a point in the history of Christianity in the West where the rest of the world needs to send missionaries to the United States to remind us of things we’ve somehow forgotten along the way.

Our guest, Rev. Dr. Robert H. Bennett, is Adjunct professor of Missions at Concordia Theological Seminary in Fort Wayne and the Administrative Pastor of Trinity Lutheran Church and School, in Reese, Michigan. He discusses his latest book, I Am Not Afraid: Demon Possession and Spiritual Warfare, a scholarly treatment of the subject of possession and exorcism, and he tells us why he had to travel to Madagascar to learn that demons are all too real.

Here is the link to the YouTube video Dr. Bennett mentioned of the exorcism in Madagascar that shifted his paradigm.


Derek and Sharon Gilbert will be at the Prophecy in the News Pikes Peak Prophecy Summit July 25-27, 2014 at the Marriott Hotel in Colorado Springs. Watch for information here.

  1. Brother… I tell you what… next time I’m having a hard day… I want one of those Lutheran nuns in that video praying for me.

    That little one up front made me think of my Grandmother who passed long before I was born… But I’ve heard stories about her… she was one fierce praying woman. Short stout… and had 11 children. Prayed for her son Roy every night on her knees during World War II as he was held captive by the Japanese for the entire duration.

  2. Hello,

    Who’s quote was it that you had talked about from a German at about the 36 minute mark of this episode!

    1. Author

      That was a Lutheran theologian named Helmut Thielicke. The quote was from his book The Evangelical Faith.

  3. Great interview. It’s back to basics for the heavily intellectualized. Our enemy is using every trick and trap to ensnare us. Praying for you, Sharon and the rest of the folks presenting and attending the prophecy conference.
