Possible reasons why we usually do not practice exorcism today

  1. Exorcism not listed in full armor of God, Ephesians 6:14-18
  2. Demonic activity today has to do with false teaching which produces false living, I Timothy 4:1-6; II Corinthians 10 & 11; James 3:13-18.
  3. Weapons we have been given that could be used: the Word of God (Hebrews 4:12), the Gospel of Christ (I Thessalonians 5:17), and prayer (Romans 1:16) not exorcism specifically.
  4. Sometimes physical or mental illness is confused with demon possession, Matthew 10:1.
  5. Sometimes the works of the flesh are confused with demon possession, Galatians 5:19-23.
  6. Exorcism is not mentioned in the epistles, only in the gospels (a sign to Jews, Mark 16:17-18; I Corinthians 1:22) and transition book of Acts.
  7. If something is doubtful, don’t do it, Romans 14:23.
