What is a demonic possession?
Some say demonic possessions are wronged spirits seeking revenge. Others say it’s a test of faith given to a person going through a moral conflict. All we know is that it’s downright terrifying.

But in order to carry out their diabolical plans on Earth, they first need to take on a human or animal form as to go unnoticed. In some extreme cases, a demon may attempt to possess a person’s very soul ---a feat considered a big victory in Hell.
