Not so, in third world countries where demons dominate out in the open through witchcraft and in your face physical manifestations. Just ask anyone from a third world country if they believe that demons are real and you will get a resounding “Oh, Yes!”
Why this difference between the two hemispheres? Could it be because of our ‘pride of life’? In our western culture we have plenty of luxury and distractions, most of which are electronic, to keep us busy and it is not considered as sophisticated for us to believe in superstitions such as demons and witchcraft.
It is appalling to see how many people watch horror movies completely dulling their senses and discernment of the spiritual and fluff it off as it just being fantasy and not real anyway. Or how we teach our children to celebrate the underworld Halloween with demonic ghouls and goblins, strangled dummies and graves with headstones on our front lawns, witches on broomstick flying into trees, demanding “trick or treat” that if we do not get a treat, we will place a trick (spell) on them, and yet treat it as completely innocent child’s play.

Saul was so distressed about the oncoming battle with the Philistines the next day, that in desperation he sought a witch to bring up the spirit of Samuel to tell him what would happen and what he should do.
Many people believe that this is what happened and that God allowed the witch to bring up the sleeping spirit of Samuel to bring a word to Saul and prophecy to him what would happen.
