The devil is not a metaphor.
My husband and his teen friends were playing with a Ouiji board. One of his friends asked the Ouiji board if they were going to move. It said, “Yes.” and then predicted “6 months”. When asked where, it spelled out a name that meant nothing to anyone at the party.”
Well...Six months later the father was transferred and his friend and his family moved to house on a street with the exact **same** name as that spelled out by the Ouiji board. ( CREEPY!)
Personally...I will have nothing to do with the occult. While references to witches, fairies, magic, werewolves, Harry Potter etc. are part of the culture and are found in movies and literature, when we encountered these things I always was clear with my children to *never *never never* dabble in these things.
What in your husband’s childhood experience suggests evil or the devil?
