Resources: spiritual warfare

Was the scene of the demon-possessed Buddhist monk in Safely Home inspired by a true story?

Question from a reader:

I recently hosted a book club for Safely Home. Most people really enjoyed it, and it seemed to give everyone a lot of food for thought on Heaven. But the one complaint I heard several times was the part about the Buddhist monk who appears to be demon possessed. People said they felt it was too forced and bizarre. Can you give any insight as to where that scene comes from? Randy, did you know of a particular event like this?

Examples of Spiritual Warfare (audio)

At a book signing at Lifeway Christian Bookstore in Beaverton, Randy Alcorn answered a variety of questions. In this clip, he answers the question, "What have been your experiences with spiritual warfare?"

How should a Christian respond to mental illness?

Question from a reader:

How should a Christian respond to mental illness? How do you determine if there is demon possession or if it is genuine mental illness, in which case, the person is still acting in sinful ways based upon biological problems. Of course some mental illnesses are said to be chemical imbalances but I’m more curious about our response to severe mental illness. Also, closely related to mental illness is brain damage victims and a change in behavior as a result. How is the Christian community supposed to respond to sinful behavior that is a result of brain damage?


How would you counsel someone who you suspect might be demon-possessed?

My good friend, seminary professor and theologian, Gerry Breshears, has written/compiled three different articles related to this subject. He has done extensive research and has firsthand experience in dealing with demon possession.

Lord Foulgrin’s Letters by Randy Alcorn

Lord Foulgrin's Letters are written by a demon to his subordinate Squaltaint. Lord Foulgrin advises Squaltaint how to tempt and deceive Jordan Fletcher, the human "vermin" or "sludgebag" to whom he's assigned.

If I Were the Devil…

I would gain control of the most powerful nation in the world.

I would delude their minds into thinking that they had come from man’s effort, instead of God’s blessings.

I would promote an attitude of loving things and using people, instead of the other way around.

I would dupe entire states into relying on gambling for their state revenue.

I would convince people that character is not an issue when it comes to leadership.

I would make it legal to take the life of unborn babies.

I would make it socially acceptable to take one’s own ...

Lord Foulgrin’s Letters: IChristian.com interview with Randy Alcorn

Lord Foulgrin's LettersiChristian.com: Every Christian cares about eternity, but you have a special passion and focus on the world to come. What causes that special passion?

Randy Alcorn: I’ve always been struck by the teaching of Scripture that this world is not our home, that our citizenship is in heaven, we’re ambassadors representing a foreign country, we’re pilgrims and strangers on this earth. My best friend from childhood, Jerry Hardin, got cancer eight years ago. One day I was reading him Revelation 22. I read verse 17, which says “Whoever is thirsty, let him come; and whoever wishes ...

My husband and I have long been readers of your fiction, ever since we were introduced to your work through Deadline. We went on to read Dominion aloud together, and since have used your books to begin our own discussions on faith together.

Endorsements and Book Reviews of Lord Foulgrin’s Letters

Lord Foulgrin's Letters

Lord Foulgrin’s Letters weren’t meant to fall into our hands. But thanks to Randy Alcorn’s imagination, we have the opportunity to read the correspondence between Lord Foulgrin and Squaltaint, two of Satan’s demons. The object of these letters is a man named Jordan Fletcher. It’s Squaltaint’s duty to keep Fletcher out of the kingdom of God.
     This book may sound similar to C. S. Lewis’ classic, Screwtape Letters, but there are significant differences. Alcorn creates an earthly setting in which we view the lives of the Fletcher family. Each earthly vignette is followed by one of Foulgrin’s letters in which he analyzes and strategizes with his underling, Squaltaint.
