Spiritual attack, within Christianity, is a term used to describe the belief that the Devil is deliberately using supernatural powers to discourage the targeted Christian from their belief in God. Such attacks can come in many forms, all of which can have a lasting, even permanent, detrimental effect on the recipient's religious life. Spiritual attacks can include possession, fear of holy objects, such as bibles or other holy books, and in many other ways.
