Yes, one was used in the Middle Ages, now we call it mental illness...
YES!!! BIG DIFFERENCE!!<br />
Demon possession is where a demon takes control of someones mind for a period of time. During this time the person possessed holds no self-control and will not remember anything while possessed.<br />
Mental illness is where someone has mind problems. They have complete control over themselves, except they are idiots or stupid (no offence mentally ill people)
Demonic possession is being possessed by an evil spirit that controls your actions. It doesn't always look like mental illness. The people might speak in different voices or contort in impossible ways. Some people believe that Madonna and other singers are demon possessed.<br />
Mental illness is when there's something wrong in your brain. It may share some characteristics with demon possession but it is different. <br />
Way back in the Middle Ages they might have mistaken mental illness for demon possession but it's not like the rite of exorcism would hurt anyone whether you believe in it or not.
Mental illness is more expensive. Priests work cheap.
yes. if the person displays unworldly powers then they are possibly possessed. but if they are just acting like an idiot then its mental illness.
