These six “demons” are from the film “The exorcism of Emily Rose”. Although all the names are found in the Bible, the idea that they are six demons is not biblical.

Cain
was the son of Adam and Eve. He killed his brother Abel and was consequently punished. (Genesis 4:1-24).
Nero
was emperor of Rome from AD54 to AD68. He is famous for his tyranny, extravagance and immorality. He is mentioned in Acts 25:8-26; 26:32; 27:24; 28:19 and Philippians 4:22. His persecutions of the Christians are referred to in 1 Peter 1:6.
Judas
was one of the disciples of Jesus. He betrayed Jesus (Mark 14:43-46) and later killed himself (Matthew 27:3-5).
Legion
was the name an insane man that Jesus healed had given himself (Mark 5:1-20). Legion means “many” and the man thought he was inhabited by many demons.
Belial
means “worthless”. There was an ancient Jewish myth about a demon called Belial. This myth is probably the basis of Paul’s comment in 2 Corinthians 6:15.
Lucifer
is a Latin word meaning “morning star” or Venus. In Isaiah 14:12, the king of Babylon is described as the morning star. The KJV translates this as Lucifer, which has misled many people into thinking the passage is referring to a supernatural force of evil.

    Cain was not a demon.
    Legion refers to many of satans ‘minions’
    Judas was not a demon.
    Nero was not a demon.
    Lucifer IS SATAN….

    A less accepted theory is that belial comes from beli ‘ol,
    meaning “without yoke”; the definition would remain about the same,
    however: a “son of Belial” would be someone who is “lawless” or
    “rebellious.”

    Either way, the Old Testament uses Belial as a personification of evil, not an actual entity.

    **Don’t be confused by movies – they are all incorrect when it comes to evil and good.
