Deliver Us from Evil

From 16-22 August, 2000, thirty practitioners, missiologists, pastors and theologians came together in Nairobi, Kenya to discuss issues of spiritual conflicts in the "Consultation on Deliver Us from Evil" convened by the Lausanne Committee for World Evangelisation and the Association of Evangelicals in Africa. The consultation objective was to seek a biblical and comprehensive understanding of (1) who the enemy is; (2) how he is working; and (3) how we can fight him in order to be most effective in the evangelisation of all peoples.

The outcome is published in this book. I find this book well worth reading and very insightful.

i was intrigued by HYung's article about the powers, spiritual encounters and such.

don't u think that evil spirits have been largely ignored by 'Western' theology?

Hi alwyn,

I believed so. That is why I like Paul Hiebert's article. He mentioned the "excluded middle". see http://draltang01.blogspot.com/2008/05/spiritual-warfare-and-worldviews.html

In this book, I like what Bishop Hwa Yung wrote
Pastoral experience shows that it is possible for Christians to be demonised (spiritual oppression or demon possession)
• Given as adoption to the deities
• Consulted mediums or used talisman or amulets
• Make vows for healing in temple
• Made pacts with spirits in secret society initiations
• Are former mediums
• Persistent sins
