Occult binding and unbinding: A New Testament perspective

In view of the recent upsurge in attention given to practices of “spiritual warfare” like “demonic binding/unbinding”, “exorcism” and “mapping”, a study is made of various New Testament references to the devil and evil spirits, their influence and how these influences were dealt with. Conclusions are drawn concerning the legitimacy, character and possible practice of a present-day (Reformed) ministry dealing with demonic influences on the life of Christians.
