This question popped into my head after my morning prayer. Why do some make deliverance so theatrical, ritualistic and dramatized? My first thought is that there really is no right or wrong way to conduct deliverance as long as it is with love and in the name of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. I think some people totally get the wrong impression regarding deliverance and exorcism because of Hollywood. Do any of you have any experience with deliverance or deliverance ministry and could you please shed some light on this? Nowhere that I've found in scriptures does it point to a certain ritual when deliverance is being conducted. Also, I have heard some say that the cross itself can be a form of idolization. Has anyone else ever heard of this? Is it because people pay more attention to the symbol than Christ Himself? Any and all thoughts are appreciated on this topic.
