Three Homilies Concerning the Power of Demons.
by Saint John Chrysostom (A.D. 349–407)
Archbishop of Constantinople
Against those who say that demons govern human affairs, and who are displeased at the chastisement of God, and are offended at the prosperity of the wicked and the hardships of the just.
Resisting the Temptation of the Devil.
Against those who object because the devil has not been put out of the world: And to prove that his wickedness does no harm to us-if we take heed: And concerning repentance.
Resisting the Temptations of the Devil.
That evil comes of sloth, and virtue from diligence, and that neither wicked men, nor the devil himself, are able to do the wary man any harm. The proof of this from many passages, and amongst others from those which relate to Adam and to Job.
