James 2:19 - Even the demons believe...

NIV You believe that there is one God. Good! Even the demons believe that-and shudder.
KJV Thou believest that there is one God; thou doest well: the devils also believe, and tremble.
NASBYou believe that God is one You do well; the demons also believe, and shudder.
James 2:19


Even fallen angels affirm the oneness of God and tremble at its implications. Demons are essentially orthodox in their doctrine (cf. Matt. 8:29,30; Mark 5:7; Luke 4:41; Acts 19:15). They know the truth about God, Christ, and the Spirit, but hate it and them. Orthodox doctrine by itself is no proof of saving faith.
