One of the sites I read daily is RealClearReligion.org which features current religion articles from all over. Today I noticed a piece about the movie that is opening tomorrow called, The Conjuring. It’s a horror movie about the haunting of a house, and it’s based on a real life situation.
This article today by Nicholas G. Hahn is entitled The Devil in My Theater. He describes movie critics screening the film as snickering their way through the movie which was anything but funny. It is astonishing that today, when you see reports of unspeakable horror in the news almost daily, the idea of real evil and Satan is laughed at. Where do scoffers think the inspiration for these horrific crimes comes from? Giggle on, those who believe in nothing but their own bellies, but as it has been said, one of the easiest tricks the devil ever pulled was to convince people (movie critics and otherwise) that he didn’t exist.
Be sober-minded; be watchful. Your adversary the devil prowls around like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour. ~ I Peter 5:8
