Re: a personal encounter with the supernatural
Hum..

Someone told me a tale from their pentecostal days. They were all the 'hand waving bible fearing' types that 'drove the devil' out of the worshipers with prayer.

One woman was cured from demonic possession, with similar symptoms, almost every week.

Ever think it might be self hypnosis with socially conditioned expectations?

Re: a personal encounter with the supernatural
Again, social conformity, and expectations. Ever wonder why it only seems to happen in prayer sessions??? People get worked up... and it's a communal experience.

Look at how people react at faith healings.

Re: a personal encounter with the supernatural
Not nessisarily.

However, does the one that started biting himself and talking in many voices belong to a church that has similar traditions?? Do they have people who 'speak in tongues? Can you relay what his Christian denomination background is?
