When I was a teenager my pastor was totally into Hal Lindsay’s “Satan is Alive and Well on Planet Earth”. He claimed to be an exorcist and had recordings of the exorcisms he let me listen to. I participated in exorcisms. He did a conference on Satanism to teach people all about devils and Satan and all the dangers.
I also remember reading Andre Crouch’s autobiography, especially the part where he said he saw a little demon hiding behind something in his living room.
During my teens, devils and demons were everywhere. Satan ruled! I lived in absolute terror night and day.
And, as a result, I was very compliant and obedient.
I’m free of all that now. Here’s an example of how I’ve changed: on Monday I was video interviewed by a “Kickass Witch”. Watch it here.
