Dr. Randy Smith interviews a young Nepalese believer, Shanti, about what her life was like growing up in a culture that accepts and expects the presence of spirits. As a Christian, Shanti has come to see the spirits behind the many gods as having demonic origins. Some time is given to both how a Christian can be freed from evil spirits after coming to Jesus Christ, and how believers can assist others wanting to be free. The interview was conducted on 10/28/12 at Faith Community Church - Elkhart, Indiana USA.
Victory Over Shadows is an annual teaching series Dr. Smith delivers on various aspects of the occult. Particular attention is focused on western culture's (including Christians) obsession with ghosts, horror, paranormal activity and paganism. The premise for this series is derived from the Book of Acts chapter 19 where there were Christians who were keeping their occult involvement secret. It was only when they had seen a demonized man beat up several unbelievers that they then began to fear God to the extend that they came and openly confessed what they had been doing in the shadows. Then they stepped fully out of darkness into the light of Christ where they then enjoyed victory.
