In an era in which seemingly normal people suddenly snap and commit horrific crimes, we must look beyond secular explanations and consider alternative sources for evil, says a top-selling writer and pastor.
Karl Payne, the author of “Spiritual Warfare: Christians, Demonization, and Deliverance,” says the New Testament depiction of the spirit realm is the only sensible explanation for the evil being unleashed on society.
“I believe Ephesians 2:2 is accurate,” Payne told WND. “Matthew 4. Romans 1 says we are on a trajectory that is running down. Morally and ethically, the longer humanity is apart from God, we see more and more horrendous decisions.”
