A Troubled Soul Saving Grace Is It Possible?

When the word of God was spread to Jews and Gentiles. There was much resistance. Religion was nowhere the institution it is today. In its infancy the Christ following was not popular. As a matter of fact it was something revolutionary to include the common everyday man,woman and child. The challenge was converting the generations of the belief system. There were so many paganistic rituals. Some are in some "religions" today. The fact that Jesus was nearly stoned many a time. That Paul suffered in prison. That John was beheaded. and on and on. Satan by way of possession had to be "exercised" out of many.
Mark 5: 6-13 Seeing Jesus from a distance, he ran up and bowed down before Him;7and shouting with a loud voice, he said, “What business do we have with each other, Jesus, Son of the Most High God? I implore You by God, do not torment me!”8For He had been saying to him, “Come out of the man, you unclean spirit!”9And He was asking him, “What is your name?” And he said to Him, “My name is Legion; for we are many.”10And he began to implore Him earnestly not to send them out of the country.11Now there was a large herd of swine feeding nearby on the mountain.12The demons implored Him, saying, “Send us into the swine so that we may enter them.”13Jesus gave them permission. And coming out, the unclean spirits entered the swine; and the herd rushed down the steep bank into the sea, about two thousand of them; and they were drowned in the sea.
