Tonights theme is Old Nick himself…
A piece of Christian PR or something else?
The challenge we will be facing is the simple fact that so much religious hysteria surrounds any discussion of demons and devils – or The Devil him, or its, self. Much of this narrow minded view comes directly from the propganda perpetuated by some of the worlds leading religions. Afterall, the argument would go, if God is good then all of the evil in the world must be coming from somewhere.
No I’m not trying to be a Satan-Devil apologist, but it must be recognised that the notion of a ‘battle royal’ between Good (God) and Evil (Devil) does not come from the Old Testament tradition nor does Satan have a major presence and he (she/it) is certainly not Gods adversary.
