Too many times I am asked if people are cursed or if the devil has it out for them? My answer is simple and straight forward.
The devil only has access to what he has claim to. Does the devil have claim on you?
Satan is a reality we face everyday, his influence on others allows him to work through them to make your life more difficult.
Haven’t you ever met a person that you just knew was evil? You may not be able to see into the devils face or stand toe to toe with lesser demons but you definitely have dealt with his minions on earth.
Most religions see the devil as the opposite of good, Gods nemesis. And although the concept is correct, most see the devil as equal to God when it is God that controls all and it is only Him allowing things to happen to teach lessons that give Satan any authority at all.
We go back to my theory that everything happens for a reason and see that it is the trials and temptations in life that makes us strong.
It creates a question that even Satan has a divine purpose. Whether Islamic Iblis, Christianities Satan or Hindu’s assures that attitude towards him is a negative one.
All God loving and fearing individuals know well to keep their distance. It is a fact that some do not begrudge the devil and some even practice Satan worship “Satanism”.
It is never my intention to tell people what God to pray to but in the same respects I feel it is my duty to remind everyone that all is possible through the power of “God” and for what ever reason anyone decides to worship the devil it will one day prove to be fruitless.
The American native Indian had no concept on one God but they did see one as the trickster and deservedly so. The occult will never give the desired results you expect.
Black magic and some forms of witchcraft promises power and success but if the price is weighed against what you really do achieve it is easy to see the path is a dead end and you do not come out ahead.
Just remember we are taught in most religions including Wicca to “respect” evil factions but not to fear and never to worship.
