Humans are not simple. They are complex. It is my belief that God has spoken. We need to listen.

World, the Flesh, and the Devil
We read in the Bible that there are three areas that Satan uses to influence us to sin.
I was reading a book on Demon Possession and the Christian. Can a Believer be demonized? If by demoinized we define it as possessed or owned.. no, a Christian can not be owned by the devil. A christian has been bought with the price of the death of Jesus Christ on the cross. Our ownership is not something we can give.
But if by demonized we mean influenced and maybe even harbor a spirit, yes, that is possible. A spirit has no corporal demensions so taking up space is no problem.
Anyway, the three areas satan and his demons can use to influence us to sin are
The World- that is the philosophy of the world system around them
The Flesh- that is the evil sin nature that is still within us.
The devil- Need I introduce who I am referring to?
