I heard a Protestant Minister say that the young boy Jesus drove demons out of near Mt. Tabor wasn't really possessed, he just had epilepsy. Is this true?
Well, Jesus, who was on the scene and rather smart, seems to have concluded differently than the preacher you mention.
That said, we do not usually bring people with seizures to an exorcist, but seek always to rule out natural causes first. In rare cases, what manifests as seizures may have demonic causes, but not usually. So rather than second-guess Jesus, or consign biblical insights to "primitive" thinking, we do better to assess what is before us, humbly realizing that there are often many levels to human struggles. And while some ailments are simply physical in origin, some may include other dimensions as well.
