How Are They Manifest In Our Modern World?Bishop Fulton Sheen states that the following 3 characteristics are sure fire ways to determine diabolical activity.
- Love of Nudity – For the text says:For a long time this man had not worn clothes.
- Violence – For the text says:though he was chained hand and foot and kept under guard,he had broken his chains. Mark 5:4 more vividly adds: For he had often been chained hand and foot,but he tore the chains apart and broke the irons on his feet. No one was strong enough to subdue him.
- Division (Split Personality and divided from others) – for the text says,many demons had gone into him. Mark’s version has the demoniac reply My name is Legion,for we are many. (Mk 5:9). Further all the texts say the demoniac lived apart from others,in solitary places.
