When I first began writing all those years ago, I knew absolutely nothing about Satanism, and being from a Christian household, we were always taught that Satan represented all things bad and evil. With this false information that was drilled into our heads pretty much from birth, I began to write the stories that were to become the blue print for The Devil And The Awesome Four using the Biblical portrayal of Satan as being the red skinned, horned headed liar and deceiver that resides in the fiery pit know as Hell and that we were to renounce his evil ways.
If I knew then what I know now, I may not have even contemplated writing these damn books. As I have come to realize over the years of research is that Satan may not even be the one you should be afraid of? But that's another story for another post. Let's get back to the writing. As I said already, I was brought up in a Christian household so the use of the so called Devil in my works seemed like the right thing at the time, and I make him look foolish even pathetic at times as his plans get thwarted by or heroes time and again. Now, as I write this post I have a completely different set of beliefs that took me years to discover, though they were staring me right in the face all along, and no thanks to Christians and their brainwashing I couldn't see what my calling was, I recently discovered that I was destined to walk the Left Hand Path all along, and like Darth Vader I have chosen the dark side and after I read The Satanic Bible by Anton Szandor LaVey that was all I needed to make my conversion complete. This book has really opened my eyes and within the pages, I saw a lot of myself and some of the things that I believed in over the years though frowned upon by the Catholic church were part of the Satanic way and it's something that I will pursue and learn about as much as possible. The proverbial Devil that we have been taught to fear and avoid at all costs is not the one that you should be afraid of?
