Halloween Devil Is Real

Recently, Supreme Court Judge Antonin Scalia was mocked by the media for revealing in a New York Magazine interview that he believes in the devil.

You would have thought he had proclaimed that the world is flat and sun revolves around the earth. In 2013 America the Devil is only real on October 31 when you see him trick or treating through the neighborhood.  The other 364 days of the year he doesn't exist.

How very convenient.

In the current public sphere, speaking of God is considered divisive and speaking of the Devil is considered kooky.

As Judge Scalia said, since Jesus himself believed in the Devil, those of us who believe the Devil is real are in good company.

For those of you who belief that the Devil is just a made up boogie man, congratulations on falling hook, line, and sinker for a basic deception. It is an easy deception to unmask, but it is much more convenient to go through life pretending the Devil and his opposition to God is not real.

Determining the Devil is for real is not that hard. I would recommend you read any of the following books to open your eyes.

The Screwtape Letters by C.S. Lewis. A perennial classic, as relevant today as it was in in 1942.

Outwitting the Devil: The Secret to Freedom and Success by Napoleon Hill. Written by the author of the classic best seller Think and Grow Rich, this controversial book went unpublished for more than 70 years.

Glimpses of the Devil: A Psychiatrist's Personal Accounts of Possession, by M. Scott Peck, most well known for his book, The Road Less Traveled. Peck waited 25 years to publish this book about his personal experiences with evil spirits.
