Can a Believer be beset by Demons?

Many denominations teach that it is impossible for a christian to be demonised or some part of their life controlled by demons. However, that does first mean we need to know what a Christian is.

What does it take to be a Christian?

Lets take our first scripture reference from John 3 vs 3 - 8

A Christian therefore is someone who has repented of their sins and by having a personal faith in Jesus, has received him as their personal saviour and Lord.

As Jesus says in vs 3 he is "Born Again".

So clearly here I am talking about a man or woman who has heard and believed the gospel, been baptised and is therefore there is no doubt about their salvation.

See John 3 v 3 - 8

There are numerous examples of salvation in scripture .. Yet in the case of Simon the sorcerer it didn't go well.

When we look at the preaching of Phillip (Acts chapter 8) we see that he successfully brought people to Christ - among them was Simon.

Simon was a sorcerer,  under domination by many demons. 

Yet scripture shows he believed and was baptised and continued with Philip... Acts 8 vs 10 -13

But then he offered Peter money for being able to give the Holy Spirit and got severely reprimanded because he was under the 'bond of iniquity'
