Abstract [en]

The article deals with the phenomenon of spiritual warfare and deliverance from demons in a dispensationalist church Cornerstone in San Antonio, Texas. The article is based upon fieldwork at the church 2012-2014. The main focus of the article deals with an event called encounter weekend that the church organizes several times a year and have as its purpose to heal people from traumatic events in their life. The consequence of traumatic events results in something called “the wound” that is regarded as a gateway for demons to enter a person’s life. The climax of the weekend is a deliverance from the demons that is interpreted to effect a person’s life negatively. The article argues that in looking at the ideas of the demonic a form of social critique is revealed and the practice of spiritual warfare and deliverance must be seen in the context of images that they are part of a larger cultural war that is between the forces of God against the forces of Satan.
