Hank Hanegraaff, the host of the 𝘉𝘪𝘣𝘭𝘦 𝘈𝘯𝘴𝘸𝘦𝘳 𝘔𝘢𝘯 broadcast and the 𝘏𝘢𝘯𝘬 𝘜𝘯𝘱𝘭𝘶𝘨𝘨𝘦𝘥 podcast, unpacks St. Matthew’s documentation of the reality of an invisible world of demons and spiritual warfare. Matthew’s account features two demoniacs who had systematically given themselves over to the power of the evil one. As such, they were inhabited by myriad demons. They had lost complete control over their passions and had become, as it were, pawns in a devil’s game. In this passage, we immediately realize the danger of underestimating an invisible war with malevolent beings, the vastness of whose collective intellect exceeds that of any mere human being. What is also plain is that human beings, unaided from above, are hardly a match for fallen angels whose devious methods have been sharpened by malice. From the primordial garden to this present generation, Satan and his hellish hoards have honed the craft of temptation. St. Paisius, a pivotal figure in Orthodox Church history, warns us to guard ourselves because “every hour we walk in the midst of passions and nets. Everywhere are set out traps—pay heed lest you be attracted by the enemy into his will through passions and traps.” St. Paul exhorts us to put on the full armor of God (Ephesians 6: 10–18).
