An example of a demon in the body would like to be a fatal disease. If the condition is discovered early and destroyed, the person will continue to live everyday life. If the disease is allowed to progress, then the person will experience more side effects of the disease. Demons need to be discovered early and cast out (exorcism or self-deliverance), or the person will experience more side effects of demons.
