Reviving Old Scratch (Beck)

Some time ago I confessed to a group of fellow-ministers that I did not believe in the actual existence of the devil.

But mostly my doubt was instigated by the empty, superstitious, and often destructive theology in which angels and demons and “The Devil” take center stage.
