IS IT possible for a story to literally scare the Hell out of you?
Every era has had its stories of monsters, demons, and gods. Those tales can teach some supernatural truth—sometimes by accident.
That’s not to say that we can find the gospel in every tale of horror. But they are “reflections through a distorted lens of godless man.”
I join Derek Gilber’s podcast with Dr. Judd Burton (www.BurtonBeyond.net), author of Interview With the Giant, and Doug Van Dorn (www.douglasvandorn.com), author of Giants: Sons of the Gods, to discuss our favorite examples of horror that manage to teach us something about the spiritual conflict around us.
DEMONS ARE the spirits of the giants destroyed in the Flood of Noah.
At least, that’s what Jews of the Second Temple period and the early Christian church believed.
Author and pastor Doug Van Dorn, bestselling author and award-winning screenwriter Brian Godawa, and Director of the Institute of Biblical Anthropology Dr. Judd Burton join Derek Gilbert’s podcast for our monthly Iron and Myth round table to discuss the origin of evil spirits. We dig into what the Bible says about these spirits, extrabiblical texts, and startling evidence that the demigod heroes of Greece like Herakles and Perseus were the Rephaim of the Amorites, Canaanites, and Hebrews.
