The dangers of forgetting the Devil

Dan Edelen reminds us not to underestimate Satan:
One of the sad outcomes of scientific rationalism is that Satan has been transmogrified from a real entity into a myth, a psychological malady, or a pointy-tailed object of mirth. Long before Nietzsche announced the death of God, Satan was well on his way to being mentally expunged from his role as ruler of this world, relegated by sections of American pseudo-Christianity to a box in the far corner of the basement.
Dan's article is worth reading.

Thanks, Milton.

Looking back, I wish I'd edited out the ending of that post. I think I made it a bit too trite with my references to video games.

Oh well.

You're welcome, Dan. Thanks for the original post, and for reminding me of the early '80s arcade video games! Peace.
