Speaking of the DEVIL
Charles F Vinson

If the devil is merely a manufactured religious myth designed to frighten the ignorant into submission, then there is really no cause for concern. But, on the other hand, if he is not a myth… The devil does not exist… at least not the devil most of us have come to recognize as the butt of magazine cartoons and standup comic routines. That devil is the rather silly looking character in a crimson body suit, having a long pointed tail and a pair of wicked little horns. He holds a tapered pitchfork and is surrounded by nasty little demons, each, like as not, carrying his own bucket of glowing coals to remind him of home. That devil seems at worst to be no more than a harmless bit of quaint religious tradition. Many people, however, are beginning to take him more seriously. This trend is the result of a growing awareness in all parts of the world of occurrences which cannot be explained scientifically or logically – occurrences which fall into the category of the occult.
