OPINION (Charisma) Demons attack people in many ways, says pastor, author and speaker Perry Stone. “I believe that there are individuals around the world that are demonized, and that’s a word that means controlled by an evil spirit,” Stone says. “Now I believe that there are many that are oppressed by demons, but they are not possessed by demons. I believe there are others that are vexed by spirits; there are others that have spirits of sickness, but they are not necessarily to the point of not being able to control their life or control the things that they do.” MORE
