Thanks to charismatic publications like the Elijah List and Charisma magazine, “the Spirit of Python” seems to be all the rage in spiritual warfare circles. False prophets and deliverance ministers all have varying ideas as to how this spirit operates and the accompanying spiritual and physical side effects. But do they really know what they are talking about? Is the Spirit of Python really responsible for all they say that it is? What do we know about this elusive spirit serpent? What does the Bible say? What does history say? By the end of this series, you’ll know the truth.
Like most of the doctrine that we learned growing up, our concept of the salvation process was formulated within a framework that, in my view, cannot really be backed up with Scripture. This framework made it easy for debates such as “once saved always saved vs. losing your salvation” to thrive in and confuse the church. This framework is flawed.
