Here's something that I've always been curious about regarding Bible-believing Christians. Suppose you are on a jury in a criminal trial, and the defendant claims that he only committed the crime because he was possessed by a demon. Would this be a reasonable defense? After all, the bible explicitly says that demons exist and that they can possess people. If we assume that demons are interesting in causing mischief, it seams that forcing someone to commit a crime in order to get the person in trouble/spread evil would be exactly the sort of thing that a demon would do. There might not be any evidence that the person was possessed, but it seams reasonable to assume that if a demon were pulling this sort of trick it would deliberately not leave any evidence of its involvement behind. So, what do you do if you are on the jury? Of course you can't prove that the person is isn't just making up the demon in order to get off the hook for his own actions...but then again, it's also impossible to prove that he's lying. And people are supposed to be assumed innocent until proven guilty.
