The most compelling representations of Satan in world literature

KEY TAKEAWAYS Although infamous today, the character of Satan has been reinvented many times over the course of human history.  Generally speaking, he developed from Dante and Milton’s tragic and misguided villain into Goethe’s and Bulgakov’s sardonic antihero.  When placed side by side, these iterations can tell us a great deal about the time of their creators. by Tim Brinkhof By taking Satan out of the religious context, storytellers explored the nature of sin in new ways. Given how familiar we are with Satan today, it may come as a surprise to learn that the concept of the “great opposer” … Continue reading The most compelling representations of Satan in world literature

10 Years of Rituals

Inside an exorcist’s diary. BY JOHN LAST We are living through a golden age of exorcism. Since the 1990s, when the famous Italian exorcist Gabriele Amorth revived the rite, the number of exorcists in the Roman Catholic Church has exploded, with training courses running in Rome forced to turn would-be exorcists away. The pope himself has endorsed the practice, as a growing number of Protestant churches promote “deliverance ministries” and other exorcisms as a central part of worship. And Hollywood has embraced it as a plot device, pouring cash into endless feature films, one tragically canceled TV series (and another critically acclaimed show that’s still ticking), and spending $400 million on a … Continue reading 10 Years of Rituals

Are we born evil? St. Augustine and “original sin”

Augustine’s theology came to define Christianity, but there was a rival theology. by JONNY THOMSON St. Augustine is considered one of the main “Church Fathers,” but his life was surprisingly salacious before his turn to Christianity. He was one of the major proponents of “original sin” — the idea that we are born with a natural inclination toward sin and evil. Augustine also was largely responsible for the “Neoplatonism” that infused so much early Christian theology, namely, the notion that the further something is from God (as perfection) the lesser it becomes. A lot of secular and religious morality hinges … Continue reading Are we born evil? St. Augustine and “original sin”


To see the light, do you need to turn to the dark side first? Thomas Hobbs “I question my sanity a lot!” admits Eric Koetting, a Utah-based black magician. “Sometimes it’s like — I just had a 35-minute conversation with Lucifer in my living room. Did that really happen? But I’m here to tell you that these spirits are very real — and misunderstood. These are intensely powerful beings and communicating with them takes its toll on your body and your mind. If you speak to them respectfully, however, the results can be life-changing.”   Hollywood has taught us that people who try … Continue reading SEARCHING FOR MINDFULNESS AMONG SATANIC SPIRITS

How an exorcist priest came face-to-face with the devil himself

By Larry Getlen In 1997, when a young, slim peasant man was escorted into the small room where Father Gabriele Amorth conducted his exorcisms in Rome, the priest felt immediately confronted by evil. Amorth said he asked for the help of Jesus, and the young man began to curse and spit, using English instead of his native Italian. “His curses and threats were aimed solely at the exorcist; then he began spitting at him and preparing to attack him physically,” writes Marcello Stanzione in “The Devil is Afraid Of Me: The Life and Work of the World’s Most Famous Exorcist” (Sophia … Continue reading How an exorcist priest came face-to-face with the devil himself

The COSMIC truth: Ten revelations that prove Democrats are DEMON-infested creatures pretending to be human by: Mike Adams (Natural News) When you interact with top-level Democrats, never make the mistake of thinking you’re dealing with human beings. The cosmic truth of the matter is that high-level “DEMONcrats” are quite literally demon-infested creatures who are pretending to be human. This is not a metaphor. It is literal. This is what allows Democrats to now legalize infanticide — the medical mass murder of children. States like New York, Virginia, Maryland and others have either already legalized the murder of children or are rapidly pursuing laws to legalize … Continue reading WHAT THE FUCK ?


Buck Rogers, Staff Writer Waking Times UNICEF, the United Nations International Children’s Emergency Fund was originally set up to provide emergency food, shelter and support to children in countries that were devastated by World War II.

Why is a children’s charity participating in the culture of elite occultism … Continue reading UNICEF – INSIDE THE SATANIC, OCCULT THEMED FUNDRAISER OF THE WORLD’S LEADING CHILDREN’S CHARITY
