"It's just these not to interrupted. But these are we start to put our faith in these things start to put our reliance in these things even the ouija board which everybody laughs. Whenever it's brought up. I did i did a chapter on it and i was even laughing about. I mean i never touched ouija board. I always knew as a christian growing up. Stay away from them. You don't wanna mess with it but when you go into the history of the wage board and you start to look at where it came from and all of these details about the fact that there was a medium involved in actually creating it you walk away and you say gosh. These are tools that people are using to put their faith in something else and many times. We're desperate we want to connect with the dead loved one you know. And that's it preys on those sorts of desperation and instead of putting our faith in christ we start to put our faith in any of the things you just mentioned or the ouija board or whatever it is it's gonna give us that immediate satisfaction when again it needs to be in something higher and above ourselves yes amen and thankfully that longing that we all have for something bigger for something spiritual. That's something that god placed in all of us. That's not something that you have argued so well like that. We need to just turn off and just deny exists but that spiritual curiosity that we have is thankfully satisfied in the spiritual reality that is stick -tated by god himself and his founding. Christ can you tell people again and how they can follow you where they can find your book anything else. You want to direct them to earn anything else. You want to say as well absolutely yes so if you go to playing with fire book dot com you can grab it. It's at walmart and amazon. And all the places that you know books are sold. And i would just encourage people and by the way you could follow me at billy hollowell to my website and all the socials but i would just say for anybody. Who's curious about the topic. Who wants to know more about it. Obviously grab the book but but really look at our culture. Look at what is happening around us. It is not a coincidence. That we're watching chaos ensues as we're moving more away from faith and don't be afraid to really dive in understand what is going on because i think it's so easy for us to get consumed by the politics to get consumed not that we shouldn't care. Don't misread me here but to get consumed with all of these details outside of truth outside of the gospel and it's really easy.

"What you just said is so true and one of the things for me in writing a book where you pull things out of the bible that only deal with evil. I was actually getting this opportunity. Which i know sounds strange. So look at okay. Who is satan. What is what is jesus. Tell us about satan. What are the scriptures. Tell us about evil. And let's look at all the stories and put that altogether what it actually did for me. And i'm not gonna lie to you. I was afraid to write the book. I know i mentioned. I said no the first time. And then i sat on the contract for two months after i was reading and then after i felt this incredible piece because it actually points you back toward good understanding evil points as back to our need for grace and for me. I felt like there was such a big piece missing in the understanding of what all of this actually means and it feels weird. And i'm a journalist so by nature. I like to question things. I want to be proven. I want somebody to give me details. And facts and to prove to me that their experience is real and so having that chance to sort of vet these stories and go into them and then to present them to say listen. You don't have to believe these things. I'd encourage atheist to pick up the book and read it because it helps you understand from a christian perspective. What we believe as christians. It's really refining and really helpful to get that full picture. That i think sometimes our churches and we're part of this too as christians. We sort of fell one another in not talking about it because it feels weird or we don't want to be looked at strangely. I mean hollywood's got no problem talking about it and of course they think it's fake. They think it's not true many of them but they're presenting and yet we have these incredible opportunities to really help people because if you are dealing with evil in some form and by the way most of us do at some point in our life we're dealing with this you know this pressure that evil can inflict even on christians lives and we don't know how to properly deal with that. That's how you really run into problems. Not only individually but corporately and.

"Those are the people who they think everything is demonic. Every bad decision every disease every illness. If it's cancer there are some people who believe cancer is caused by demons and then you have the other dynamic which is what we were talking about before and that sort. The demons aren't responsible for anything they don't exist. They're not around anymore or just don't care i'm not going to think about it. And there's a middle ground that you have to strike with this to understand again you go back to that fusion six chapter that we are living in a battle whether we like it or not whether people want to admit it or not. We have this battle of good and evil. And we're in the middle of this every human being is and.

"We hear about witchcraft. Elilott as it pertains to countries in africa or even haiti when people think about witchcraft. They kind of think about. I think Third world countries or the eastern world. They don't think about things that are happening or trends that we see here in the west. And when we hear about demonic activity or demonic possession it seems to typically comes come from cultures like that. So what does demonic possession looked like today in our own cultural context. Because i can't believe that it's only happening in certain countries and wouldn't be happening here. Yeah well you know. It's really interesting about that. As i was working on the book and talking with pastors in priests and individuals who are dealing with this on a daily basis believe it or not there are deliverance pastures and there are ministers who deal of the catholic church in exercises and then the catholic church has obviously the rite of exorcism which we can talk about but in america. We've had a really interesting heritage here right. we've had this judeo christian underpinning and even though we're moving away from that and we're seeing the effect of that it's fascinating to look back at that history. I think in a lot of ways because christianity has been so even if it's just nominal ingrained in who we are. We often don't see these sorts of things but it doesn't mean they're not happening and to give an example. All of these experts told me that they have seen massive increases and actually the catholic church is openly said this in requests for help meaning that there are people whether or not they're truly dealing with these issues they believe they are and that is increasing. So as you sort of map out that move away from faith in america which i think is really fascinating. You know this and talking about culture. We see all these bizarre things happening in culture but we also see at the same time that people are experiencing more and more spiritual duress as that unfolds. And so we've had a number of stories in america..

"The mix of all that all right quick break to tell you about good ranchers good ranchers since you quality american meat to your front door. We're talking amazing quality beef and chicken all from american farmers. You might not know that similar services that send me to your front door. The number one. They actually don't allow you to choose. Which means you want to come in your box but they also send you me. That is almost one hundred percent if not one hundred percent from farmers abroad but when you're using goodrich ranchers the thing that makes them different. Is that one. Hundred percent of their me is from american farmers. So that's something that's important to you. It's certainly important to our family to try to support american farmers as much as possible then. Good ranchers is an amazing option for you. You can either just go online. You know pick out your meat and get your one time box or you can do their family. Feast bundle option. So that's a subscription option where you're getting those boxes of meet regularly and the great thing about that..

"Actually really look like so. Can you talk. just summarize. I guess a little bit about why you wrote this bulk and thibout yes. We're playing with fire. This was a book that there was another publisher a few years back that this idea came about of doing journalistic exploration from a christian lens but as journalists sort of diving into this topic and at the time i moved away from it we had a book offer and i was like you know what i prayed about it. I just felt like. I'm more into politics right now. Of course i care about faith. I'm a lifelong christian. But i don't want to touch this dark topic and so it felt very dark to me. I moved away from it. And i have to tell you that god has a way of bringing us back to the things he wants us to do. And so i basically had a book offer dropped on my lap to do this a couple of years after the original book offer and i sat on it for two months just praying about it and thinking about it and for me even when i worked at the blaze we would sometimes get these stories right. You'd get these mainstream outlets that we're covering possession stories and so i was always intrigued by it and we would cover them and we do our due diligence to try to understand what people were claiming had happened but i realized there was this profound disconnect between the claims that people were making right and the things we see in the bible and what is being talked about not only in secular circles but christian circles and when i went to write playing with fire we did survey research among church leaders and it was really remarkable to see that the vast majority of church leaders would say. Yeah we believe in demons. Yeah we believe that by the way church leaders are not just passers people who are in bible studies and all sorts of different leadership positions. But they say we believe all this we know it impacts culture but then when you'd ask the question is your church talking about this enough the vast majority would say no and so that disconnect for me. I really felt compelled obviously to work on this project. As i prayed about it but i became intrigued by that because i thought gosh i don't think there's another topic talked about so frequently in scripture particularly the new testament and spoken about so infrequently in churches and that is concerning because at the end of the day hollywood and this is sort of remarkable at the same time. Churches are talking less about this. You've got hollywood. Churning out the conjuring the conjuring to all these demon possession movies right again and again and again and so hollywood is actually improperly. But they're talking about a topic more so than the churches and it's actually a church topic so that was sort of thing that really helped me into this. Yeah so let's talk about demonic activity and the power that satan actually has honest. Let's start with the specific question. So i don't leave it. So open ended. One question that i get a lot is to satan. Have control of your mind contain. Read your thoughts to satan. Have control of your thoughts. Let's start there and kind of move outwards. Can you answer that question. Yeah it's really interesting. I guess the answer to the question is how much have you allowed satan into your life right and so the thing in talking with so many theologians and pastors i mean the general premise. Here is that you go back to a vision. Six right and for me. A fusion six is such a fascinating chapter because it tells us everything we need to know about good and evil and it's encapsulated in just a few verses but it tells us we're in a battle over good and evil that what protects us from that battle taking up..

"We are not judged ultimately by our vote. Unfortunately there are people who identify as christians on the republican and the democratic side. Who really think that we are. And i just praised the lord that that's not the case well and here's the thing right. We talk about cancel culture which i love to call cancer culture because it infection everything and yeah i mean the left is so guilty of this but it is happening a little bit on the ray and happening in these arenas of if you didn't support trump bri and you're just going to cancel those people we need to get rid of them and i think we have to be really careful that while we're calling the left out that we don't do the same thing on the right and so i agree with everything you just said i think for me. I can't possibly grasp what would what would make a christian be passionate about joe biden's policies and who joe biden is. I mean it's just it doesn't it doesn't add up for me. It's one thing to say. Somebody's a nice guy. Or i think he's a good guy and you may think that but at the end of the day you have two things to really base a vote. On in my view a platform policies that are laid out and then you actually have the policies themselves that had been enacted so when it comes to those things particularly on the life issue on identity and what we see happening throughout our culture right now to me as a christian. Now i'm not. I'm going to do the same thing you're doing. I'm not going to say you can't be. I know of christians. Who voted for joe biden. Because they were so disgusted with the rhetoric and the things they saw coming from trump but for me again it goes back to those hallmarks of the platforms in the policies. Yeah and you. You mentioned that when you were kind of decided on your vote in what you're gonna do. You're coming off of writing this book playing with fire. And you're kind of in this hyper or describe like this hyper spiritualized perspective. And i think it's good for us to have always that eternal and supernatural perspective of things that are going on that might not mean that we all land in the same place as christians even having that perspective but it is important for us to think about things eternally in to think about things spiritually. You've touched on this spiritual subject of demonic activities to per natural activity that a lot of people don't think about we don't like to think about. We don't like to talk about pastors. don't talk about. There's not very many books on this subject. And yet i get a lot of questions about this subject about okay like what is how what is satan. What power demons. Actually have. Because there's a rise in in witchcraft. There's a rise in the new age especially among young women and so christians are like okay. Hang on what does the spiritual realm of good versus evil..

"Haven't help the problem right. We've made the problem worse because we haven't stood up and supported trump for me. It's about the policies. And i've always been very open and vocal on policy and i will continue to be pro-life policy. You know in conservative values. I just felt like in two thousand and twenty. I had i had the ability to not have to show up so for me. It was principal and it would have been a struggle for me to to go out there. And say i love donald trump. I love everything. Donald trump chance because the reality is. I agree with the policies but i don't love many of the things that donald trump as a person stands for and i i would agree with that. Everyone on this podcast knows how i feel about it. And i even have some people who have told me that you know i am the reason or i'm part of the reason why donald trump lost. Because there's i so often caveat him with you know. i love that. He did this. I am going to vote for him. I did vote for him. Two thousand and sixteen and twenty twenty based on the reasons that you just said. And so you and i both have the same kind of reasoning in the same kind of logic and feelings about trump i ultimately ultimately voted for him both times based on those policies that that we agree with but i very often offer the same kind of qualifications in caveat that you do that look. I don't like when trump says this. I don't like trump does this. I don't like this part about his character. I don't like when he did this or that tip a critical or that's not conservative or something like that in unfortunately a do a lot of people on the right end the left when it comes to their respective candidates really do want total puritanical support of their guy of their champion and they think any kind of coloring outside of those lines means that you want the destruction of america or you want the failure of that candidate or you precipitated. The failure of the candidate. And that's just not true..

"Hey guys welcome to relatable. Today i am talking to billy hollowell. He wrote a book called playing with fire. And it's about supernatural activity. Demonic possession satan satanic powers thinks so we don't necessarily talk about explicitly that much on this podcast or really in christian culture at all but he has uncovered why he thinks it's so important especially in this present moment for christians to understand that this is going on to see how this is going on and then for is with the power of christ to push back against this. I we're actually going to talk about a little political subject. But it'll tell together because he did not vote for trump in twenty twenty and so we're going to talk a little bit about our differences in our agreements there. So it's a really good conversation that i'm looking forward to hearing here. Is billy holwell belly. Thank you so much for joining me. I think a lot of people who are listening or watching already familiar with you and your work but just in case. Can you tell everyone who you are and what you do sure. Yeah so. i am a journalist. I'm a commentator. I actually worked at the blaze. I was the faith editor at the blaze for about a five years and some huge blaze fan and i've been working for really the last fifteen years more than fifteen years now in and so politics and faith in the last five to seven years. My focus has been culture and faith and just diving deep into patterns of what we see happening. Wyatt's happening and sort of helping people navigate that and you wrote a book called plane with fire and about supernatural activity and monica activity. And i want to get into all of that. And i'm super excited. That's going to be the boko. Lavar bulk of our episode. But something that you. And i have talked about on twitter before that we talked about a longtime ago discussing on. This podcast is your support. Then you're not support of donald trump and by support. I just kind of mean. The chew voted for him in two thousand sixteen. You did not vote for him and twenty twenty. And i'm just so interested to hear your reasoning on that because that's not something that i hear a lot of conservative christian. Say that they did. It's sort of the opposite right. You hear a lot of people. Say i didn't vote in two thousand sixteen and then i did in twenty twenty and so here's the thing i live in new york and i had said many times during the campaign and this is sort of sounds like a cop out but if i lived in a state where i felt like it really mattered i would have shown up in voted differently right and so i didn't vote for either trump or biden and i really struggled honestly with the entire thing and i think for me it was you know in two thousand sixteen. I sat down with trump two weeks before the election. he called a bunch of never trumpers to trump tower..

"Welcome back to the Buck Sexton show Michael Palka in for Buck and we were talking about the Christmas star. So I pulled Billy Hallowell in here. He's one of the great faith writers in this country. Billy have to know. I know it's still kind of visible. But was this the star that guided the wise men to Jesus? Yeah, you know, so we can't be 100% sure, because there are a bunch of theories about what they saw, right? Some are saying it was a supernova. Others are saying it was this really interesting, essentially alignment of planets, which would have involved Saturn and Jupiter. Now what's interesting about what we're going to see in the skies is that this current one actually involved Saturn and tubers, so it's possible. But what's basically happening is that that Saturn and Jupiter are lining up in the sky. It looks like they're colliding. But there's still like 400 million miles away from each other. But the Wednesday line up, it's going to be the bright, amazing start. I actually saw it last night. This goes from the 16th through the 25th. It ends on Christmas. I just find it. I find it really fascinating that it's happening around in on Christmas during a year when we've had so much chaos and pain right in 2020, and it's almost like this really cool reminder of what the season is about. And of hope and end of all that. So can we be sure? It's the same thing they saw. No, but I think it points us right back to that which I think is pretty amazing. Well, we can't exactly be sure. But there is science involved in this. Astronomers have been doing the math on this. The The astronomers in in Rice University in Texas did the math. I'm pretty sure some of the ancient astronomers did the math and they know where and when these planetary alignments occur, and it's all around the same time, so There's every chance that this could have been what was called the star that guided the wise men. I have to interrupt you to say that this particular alignment. So Saturday, Jupiter will Bill Align every 20 years in the sky or so, but not like this. Not this right. This. This is the first time At this particular alignment has happened in 800 years. More than 100 years. It was 12 26. That was the last time that this alignment happened and I found it interesting. It's gonna happen again in 2080 and then not for another 400 years, So it's It's a notable moment. We know that something similar happened. You know again. There's research on this back around the year three, so basically around the time that Jesus was born. So it's there. It's so interesting to me that because my thing is like if we can have this moment of hope, something that points us back to Christmas, and it's happening on Christmas. I find that almost a little eerie, but in a positive way, and in an interesting way. Head. Then I'll take it because I think we need that this year. We're talking to Billy Hallowell. He's a friend of mine is have faith Writer. You confined him. What's the best place? Billy Faith Wire? Is that the best place to find you? So I've got pieces over a faith wire, but I actually write daily over it. Insider dot sheriff looks calm and I have a story about about this Christmas star over there, so I'd encourage people to check that out. Okay. Insider doubt pure flicks calm. I also have to bring up your book playing with fire that came out earlier. I'm fascinated with this book because it's a book that as I read it, my job kept dropping. You're talking about all of the The well known cases of exercises ums that we've talked about in the past, not just the one that inspired William Peter Blatty is book but other exorcisms and I have to go back now, a couple months after this book's been out, and it's done well. Are you still getting revelations about demons and possessions and exorcizes ums? I am And what's interesting is I've had people reach out to me and they're like, Oh, my goodness. I heard your interview somewhere or I picked up the book and this is what's happening in my house. When you're talking about spiritually warfare in possession and all that we tend to look at it. As entertainment. But there are a lot of people out there and yes, some people are having mental afflictions. But others are experiencing things that they cannot explain, and that that we can. We can actually explain when we look at Scripture. And so that was the whole motivation for writing. You're playing with fire, and I loved hearing from people on it because it kind of reinforces this idea, And we know that this is true because we see it in the box office numbers. It's a topic people want to talk about, and people are interested in it. But they don't always feel comfortable Having the conversation again. The book is playing with fire. His name is Billy Hallowell. My friend. Thank you for talking about the Christmas star. And thanks for spending some time with me Christmas and demons that we covered it. So there you go.

You're talking about all of the the well known cases of Exorcizes ums that we've talked about in the past, not just the one that inspired William Peter Blatty is book. But other experts ISMs and I have to go back now, a couple months after this book's been out Well, are you still getting revelations about demons and possessions and exorcizes ums? Yes. So I am And what's interesting is I've had people reach out to me and they're like, Oh, my goodness. I heard your interview somewhere or I picked up the book. And this is what's happening in my house. And there's actually one family. I connected to somebody who could help them. I want to be But they needed help. And you know it's been interesting because you hear these stories or people have actually resettle out to talk about past issues they had right before they had turned to faith. Where they were dabbling with these things they shouldn't have been, and you know, so yeah, I've had. I've had a lot of that and I just had a couple e mails the other day. It's on my Web site. People will reach out and I'm actually planning to do some other projects off of this because I think it's it's such an important You know, topic when you're talking about spiritually warfare and possession and all that we tend to look at it as entertainment. But there are a lot of people out there and, yes, some people are having mental afflictions. But others are experiencing things that they cannot explain. And that that we can. We can actually explain when we look at Scripture and so That was the whole motivation for writing, you know, playing with fire, and I love hearing from people on it because it kind of reinforces this idea, And we know that this is true because we see it in the box office numbers. It's a topic people want to talk about, and people are interested in it, but they don't always feel comfortable having the conversation. Well, you didn't feel comfortable committing to writing the book. Initially, you have to take some time before you actually decided to write it. I did not want to rape playing with fire. I was pretty committed to not writing it. But I really am a person. You know this. I'm not perfect. I try toe. Pray about everything, and I kept praying about it and I just kept feeling like it was something I needed to do and that I should do so I sat on that book contract for two months and Kept thinking, You know, it's just It's such a dark topic. Do I really want to go in and tell these stories of possession? And do I really want to open my family up? I was had all these assumptions about what happens. And I know that that sounds if you're if you're an atheist, and you're listening, this sounds crazy. Or if you're a skeptic, it sounds like I'm a nut job saying this, but For Christians. We know what the Bible says. And it doesn't take much to look out there. Everybody I don't care how atheistic ur whoever's listening. You've all interacted with people who have had things happen that they can't explain. We all have that We all have those people or we've been those people and so Anyway, I create about it, and I felt it was the right thing to do. And I dove in, and it was really one of the most amazing experiences. I'm glad I did it. I'm glad you did it to again. The book is playing with fire. His name is Billy Hallowell, my friend. Thank you for talking about the Christmas star. And thanks for spending some time with me Christmas and demons that way, covered.

"That like they're trying to. It's like paying off the Mafia to leave you alone. You know, like we're going to do this just in case, you know, I don't want any bad luck or not. I need to think. Well, that's not a biblical view. Bad luck, either. Your faith is in God and you put your trust in him. Or what, you're you're playing this like game of, uh, it's it's not really your living in half measures, and you're not really willing to acknowledge that there's a demonic realm. But you're willing to say what I better not work on her ladder right there, Not do this. I better do that. And you're living your lives in fear. And of course, some people has really takes over their lives. On DH, So I think that again. We want to be open about what Israel and what is God's answer, and there is a realm a spiritual realm that hates God and it Israel and we need to acknowledge it. And again. I think there's so many people listening right now. They've got your stories. I think it's important to know Jesus really is the answer to this. And frankly, many Christians They don't have. They don't walk in the authority that Jesus wants them. Tohave. We're supposed to have his authority. We're supposed to be his ambassadors wielding his power. We do things in his name. The demons should tremble, but I think they're many Christians that tremble at the idea. Of demons. Absolutely. We're afraid of, and I was in that moment. I didn't know what I didn't know why That thing happened. Right? And I said to my wife, you don't understand. She had no damn. I'm on the phone right now getting this book offer that I never even filled out a proposal for but it became very clear moving through the project. This is something I'm supposed to do. I've been kind of haunted by the fact that we're afraid as a church. I mean, look at what's happening in culture. Culture is falling apart. People are freaking out. People are losing their minds and I look around and we're not talking about any of the difficulty. We're afraid to talk about the things that aren't difficult, And here we are. I mean, we did a survey for this book as I mentioned through HarperCollins, and we asked 1100 pastors and church leaders, you know, do they believe that demonic forces have the ability to overtake a person over 80% of them? Said Yes. Do we believe that that demons are active today, 85% said. Yes, they are. But then 78% of those people said that pastors and churches are ignoring these issues. So the majority of them are feel. Yeah, This is important. It's riel. But you know what? Our churches are not dealing with it on ly 17% of churches have Deliverance ministry, right, So it's And even that's controversial. Some people don't think we should be doing deliverance in the book talks about what Deliverance is a swell, which is basically we're going to go to break. I want to come back right to that for a final segment vote stuck in a Billy Hallowell. The book is playing with fire. Way ever forget that we're one nation under God. Then we will be a nation going under from the producers of God's not dead. This is not time for spiritual awakening. I need to be the man that God made me to be a movie so relevant for our times. One nation under God. Who do you think you are just expressing my freedom of speech now? Around here, buddy. One Nation under God winner, a 35 film festivals.

"I mean, she goes to the media with this story, she says. Look, I was a nurse. I was completely healthy. I was a churchgoer. And what's interesting and weird about Amy's story is that she can't pinpoint what it was that as you were saying, before, most people could say, Okay, I was playing with a wee Gee board I was doing, you know, I was, you know, repeatedly sitting over and over again and not repenting that they all have a reason they think That allowed evil, and Amy can't really pinpoint that. But anyway, she was a nurse completely healthy. Working in a hospital. One day a burn patient came in. And she said they thought it was. It was drug related meth lab something like that that had caused his injuries, and that details stuck out to me because I just thought it was sort of interesting, and as she's caring for that patient, she finishes up and all of sudden she can't walk straight. She doesn't feel normal. She goes home, and she was an avid runner. She can't run in a straight line. She starts having these physical issues that turn very quickly into mental issues where she is within a week being hospitalized. She leaves her job. And she's marriages. A family. She basically loses everything over this eight or nine month period. I believe it was and no doctor Khun Khun. Tell her what's wrong with her? She goes the Mayo Clinic. Everybody assumes some doctors say it's in your head. Other doctors. It's physical. They put her on all sorts of medication, and the story culminates and I go into it in detail in the book, where she is one day on the second floor for house And something told her in her head. She just dropped herself out of the window, not jump, not throw herself out of the window, so she sat back. Her back was facing the window. Right. So she's facing inside of the house, and she drops herself out of the window lands on the platform below and almost dies, And during this process, a woman Who does Deliverance Ministry. Here's through the church through this woman's church, Amy that Amy is in the hospital and what has happened. She goes to the hospital and essentially performs a deliverance and prays over her. And Amy has never had another mental health issues since then, right, so I'm summarizing this story here, but it is a crazy story, and she comes on the podcast. He's in the book. Talking about this and again, her family doesn't want her talking about it. People don't want her talking about it. But she feels compelled to help other people through her story. And so that's just one example. Well, I've heard so many stories like this many of them for my friend, 10 fish. I've had him on this program many times telling some of these stories, and they're very clear. There's nothing spooky. It's just It's an unknown realm, and it's kind of like dealing with disease. You can't just pretend it doesn't exist. You've got to say, what is this and what is the way to deal with this and can fish and others? Over time, They begin to recognize symptoms just way Dr Wood, and they begin to say that this seems like this, and then they start praying over that are they asked the person Have you ever had issues with this or you ever sexually abused or where You know, you start realizing Look, this is this is really and here's the bottom line. People are suffering. It's not about us intellectually speculating. There are people suffering. They want answers. They want to know why does this happen? Why did that happen? Ana. I'm here to say there are answers on we need to look at it. So again. I'm happy that you've written this book playing with fire. We'll have more with Billy Hallowell zero in taxes show. No news passion. This is am 97. The answer 71 degrees under clear skies. What's going on? We have the answer.

"Talking Billy Hallowell. He has a new book out called Playing with Fire. Modern investigation into demons. Exorcises, Um And ghosts, Billy. I, um I never knew what I believed. And then suddenly, you know, 30 years ago, I came to faith. And I knew that this world that I was told the laugh at angels and demons. Were you kidding? That It was really Theo. Only question is What parts of it are really real and what parts of it are. There's exaggeration or there's misunderstanding or whatever. It's an invisible realm. But you know when we're talking about quantum physics, we're talking thinks there are many invisible realms that we investigate and eventually learn about scientifically. And so there's ever any question. About that. But this is around a lot of fuel, so I'm not I'm not going to go there and I think Hey, if it's really I want to go there and so The what I find interesting is people who are Christians themselves arguing about this. For example, you talk about demons, exorcism and ghosts. Of the existence of demons, the ability to cast out demons everything. Most people would have a problem with that. But many people myself included. Get confused. When you get into the realm of ghosts are ghosts. I was taught Oftentimes that ghosts are demons masquerading as disease. Loved ones. Ah, what do you say or what is your investigation let into And what does the Bible say? Yeah, You know that. That's the really interesting piece of this right? Because 43% of Americans, They believe that people can die and come back is go. So that's not just Christine. That's 43 4 out of 10. People believe that and so there's a real strong belief and actually, Mohr. People believe in demons. 45% believe that it's possible that demons exist. So you have this proportion of people again. They're not quite sure many of them what they believe. But they believe that something is happening. And so the way that Hollywood has shaped us is everything is the Exorcist, right? Spinning heads and vomiting and all that craziness. That's how people view exercise. Um, and on the flip side, a lot of people just assume that anything weird going on is ghost. But the experts that I spoke with and these are people who are on the front line. Some of some of these people are people. You know Sam Rodriguez and many others. You know, the discussion was really centered. Mohr on what you just said that these are that there are no people who are dying and remaining, but Find a few experts were open to that. But the idea was that demons will try to trick you into believing their deceased loved one. So you go and you try to communicate with your deceased mother. You go to a medium to a psychic, and you're really not talking to that person. Right? So a lot of this again, it's theory. It's idea. But we have to go back to Scripture. Right when in Scripture did we ever see an example of people coming back to haunt? And I won't. I don't want to spoil it. Now. There are a couple interesting examples in the Bible that people could say, Oh, is that an example of somebody dying and coming back after Jesus's Resurrection, for instance, is one example. There's scripture talking about people coming out of their tombs essentially and walking. It's almost this zombie like description, but that's tied to the resurrection. This amazing event. That has only happened once in human history. That's not the norm. So there are no examples that we have in Scripture of somebody definitively dying and returning on their own without God, bringing them about in some way. We see this with Samuel and Saul. There's another example that I'll give you of of God allowing. We don't know if it's a ghost, The ghost of Samuel or if it's an image that God's allowing salt to see, But so we don't have those examples. So you have to go back to Scripture. And when those experts go back, they don't see an example of a person dying, coming back and haunting. And when you really get into the meat of these stories, it really does seem like you're dealing with these demonic entities. You're not really dealing with that deceased loved one. And so I found that really Wristing because I've always personally wondered are ghosts real and I walked away from the book as a Christian feeling like, Well, no, I have no evidence that I could say, I believe, and I have a whole chapter on ghosts in there that ghosts are actually something that happened in real life. It is, you know, absolutely fascinating to get into this, because if you talk to many people, almost most people they have stories that they say. Well, I don't like to talk about this. I have never talked about this. And they tell you starting you think what is wrong with you? Why aren't you talking about that? That's kind of amazing s u here. Many people have stories of encounters, and I think that the reason that I like to talk about and the reason I'm glad you wrote this book is because God wants everything to come out into the light out into the open because he has answers. So when I think of people who are dealing with demonic oppression there, hearing voices They're dealing with stuff and they're being manipulated by these by these demons. It sounds crazy, but I mean, I've talked to many people have experienced this and there are ways to deal with it ways to pray for them ways to find out how you provided an opening for this demonic presence to come into your life. I was talking to Ah, A young woman about we're growing up. She'd watch turns of horror films on that was one of the ways that the demons came into her life. And as for exorcisms, I mean, I have seen You know, exoticism is kind of a fancy word, casting demons out of people. It's a really thing I've been there when it has happened. I've seen it and it's usually not as scary as you would think. Right. It's kind of basic. The power of God is far more powerful, infinitely more powerful than the power of the demons, and the only difference is do the people. Dealing with this know that, And if the people know it, they have no fear of demons. They know that the demons are swarming, writhing and fear of Jesus Eso again. I'm just I'm just so glad you wrote the book. What is some of the stories that you can share from? Others, one that and if people go and preorder it or even after after preorder, there's gonna be a podcast that playing with fire podcast where I'm talking with some of the people who told me their stories and even some people who are not in the book, but there's one that really stuck out to me. As I was working on the book Last fall, I saw I noticed the story. It was out of Arkansas on it was a local affiliate. And I'm always captivated when a media outlet is willing to actually cover one of these stories, and it's very rare. The Indiana case was a great example. Because everybody covered I don't if you remember, but that was 2013. That story was everywhere. It was in every way. A lot of mainstream outlets covering it was the Indianapolis star that actually broke the story in the first place, and they had enough documentation to do it. So I found this other story. It was in Arkansas. It happened last. It happened last year. It was October. 2019. It was this woman named Amy. And she's telling her story. She was paralyzed from the waist down. And as I'm reading this story, this woman is so brave..

"Michael Palka sitting in for my friend Buck Sexton. Once again, we have a lot to get to tonight. And there will be news and there will be cultured tonight. It's Friday night, and you know it's a weekend, so we have to get into some of the squishy topics of the weekend. I want to introduce you to a friend of mine who's a movie critic later on. And my buddy Billy Hallowell. From my days of the blaze has a new book out, and it's about ghosts and exorcisms and demons. And so I'm saving it for the last hour. Well, we'll get into spooky time. On that one. We'll talk Tio Billy in just a little bit, But I have to get into this story out of Portland. Now this story. It's kind of a wild one. And I'm sure you've seen it. We had the gentleman with the Patriot prayer group who was killed earlier in the week. I know if you remember Aaron Jay Danielson. He 39 years old. He was shot in the chest last Saturday night. He was part of this parade, I guess into Portland. A pro Trump parade, and he's part of a group. Called Patriot Prayer. Some people say they're radical, right wing. Ah, based on everything we've heard, J. Danielsson was not a radical. He may have been a conservative. He definitely was a Trump supporter. He was shot at point blank range. And ah The man who was the suspect in the shooting was a guy who had I believe he had a tattoo on his neck that said 100% and TIFA. And this is a bad dude. The guy that they were looking for 48 year old man, Last name of Reinhold Michael Rhino. And yesterday evening. Reinhold was Being surveilled. Because it appeared he had confessed to the killing. Of J. Danielson. And he had done so via vice dot com via a website. So here's the Portland suspect, Mr Rhino 48 year old Reinhold 100% Antifa. Talking to the people from Vice in this clip. Lots of lawyers suggested. I shouldn't even be saying anything, but I feel it's important that the world at least gets a little bit of what's really going on because there's been a lot.
