comment Does every sin affect other people?
RE: "every sin does affect people - three people, actually: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit"... that's not at all what I was asking; I think it's clear from my original post I meant fellow human people, not Divine Persons of the Trinity.

comment For those who view Israel typologically, what is the significance of the 12 tribes?
@warren ...which is why I asked for the most prominent views.

comment What are Christian theologeans referring to when they talk about “God's glory”?
So it can refer to either? Sometimes it's His radiance, and other times it's people's recognition of Him?

@vs06 I would just be speculating; the text doesn't say. Perhaps it gave him an invisible friend, or prophetic powers (like the girl in Acts)... who knows.

comment Origin of the idea that “demons” and “fallen angels” are the same thing?
Regarding the first proof-text, I'm pretty sure that similarity only exists in the English of some translations. The "Devil" (Greek diabolos) is semantically different than the "devils" (Greek diamonia). The second proof-text doesn't say anything about "demons". The remainder of your answer is tangential.

@H3br3wHamm3r81 I did not. Feel free to provide an answer which builds on the meaning & grammar of that word.

comment Basis for belief that a person can be “possessed by” a demon?
There are even theological debates about whether its possible for a person who has "sold their soul to the Devil" to get saved or not, which is the same sort of thinking. The idea is that the Devil "owns" the person now, and the person is now the Devil's property, unable to choose to leave, etc. This whole "owned by a demon" theology is looking suspect to me now. But before I go on a crusade against the idea of being "possessed", I want to check with the community to see if I'm missing anything obvious.

...there is a huge theological debate about whether Christians can be "possessed by" a demon, or whether people who are "possessed by" demons are under their complete authority, or whether they are able to overcome the demons' "authority" over them. I'm wondering if we're chasing our tails here when that's not even what the Bible says was happening. Maybe these people wanted demons because they got some benefit from having the demons, and the demons came with consequences. Why do we assume they were "possessed by" the demons and not vice versa?
