I've been to meetings and services where "demons" were allegedly "cast out." Folks came one-by-one, or in some instances demons were cast out of everyone in the service. I find NO scriptural justification for the church coming together to engage in such activity. 

An individual who believes he or she is under demonic influence needs to contact a Pastor (not a word-faith-have-what-you-say-demon-busting-heretic on TV) in the community, join in a fellowship of believers where demonology is not even talked about, enter into Bible study, prayer, and service in the local church, never associate with folks who run about casting out demons, minister to family and friends about that heresy, and thank God for His free gift of salvation by grace through faith. Get born again!!

A Christian who believes in demonic possession must understand that no filthy demon can live in the same house as the Holy Spirit! Demonic influences (SIN) are eradicated by walking in the footsteps of our Savior, never failing to place even the worst at the Master's Feet.
