In Christianity, exorcism is the practice of casting out or getting rid of demons. In Christian practice, the person performing the exorcism, known as an exorcist, is often a member of the Christian Church, or an individual thought to be graced with special powers or skills. An exorcist (from the Greek ”ἐξορκιστής“ is a person who is believed to be able to cast out the devil or performs the ridding of demons or other supernatural beings who are alleged to have possessed a person, or (sometimes) a building or even an object.

Exorcism, an adjuration (ad-ju-ra'-shun: The act of requiring or taking a solemn oath.) In a time of military peril Saul adjured the people ('alah, "to take oath") and they took oath by saying "Amen” addressed to evil spirits to force them to abandon an object, place, or person; technically, a ceremony used in both Jewish and Christian traditions to expel demons from persons who have come under their power.
The exorcist may use prayers and religious material, such as set formulas, gestures, symbols, icons, amulets, etc. The exorcist often invokes God, Jesus, Holy Spirit or several different angels and archangels to intervene with the exorcism. Protestant Christian exorcists most commonly believe the authority given to them by the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit (the Trinity) is the sole source of their ability to cast out demons. In general, people considered to be possessed are not regarded as evil in themselves, nor wholly responsible for their actions, because possession is considered to be unwilling manipulation by a demon resulting in harm to self or others. Therefore, practitioners regard exorcism as more of a cure. The mainstream prayers usually take this into account, making sure that there is no violence to the possessed. However, there are Biblical verses, like John 13:27, NIV: As soon as Judas took the bread, Satan entered into him. So Jesus told him, 'What you are about to do, do quickly.' John 13:27, ESV: Then after he had taken the morsel, Satan entered into him. Jesus said to him, “What you are going to do, do quickly.” John 13:27, KJV: And after the sop Satan entered into him. Then said Jesus unto him, That thou doest, do quickly. John 13:27, NASB: After this, Satan then entered him. Therefore Jesus *said to him, 'What you are doing, do it quickly.' John 13:27, NLT: When Judas had eaten the bread, Satan entered into him. Then Jesus told him, 'Hurry and do what you're going to do.' John 13:27, CSB: After Judas ate the piece of bread, Satan entered him. So Jesus told him, "What you're doing, do quickly." that implicitly convey that demonic possession can be voluntary, as exemplified in individuals like Judas Iscariot, who willingly submitted to the Devil.
