Well, it all started when I tried to order a polish sausage biscuit at Hardee's. I loved those things,, although I used to be enamored with the sausage gravy biscuit.
Anyway, the voice over the intercom said, 'We're out of polish sausage'. I knew something was fishy. I mean, it was 7am. How could they be out? I wasn't happy, got a streak biscuit instead and when I complained at the window they were confused. They said they had plenty of polish sausage. They wouldn't let me change my order. Said I'd have to go through the drive through again. But, I couldn't. I was scared. Who could have been on that intercom standing in the way of my happiness if it wasn't Satan?
I've been through that drive through plenty of times after that day, but they must have performed some exorcism on that intercom because I've never had any trouble since.
"fishy" polish sausage intercom experience? must have been something.....fishy? !!!!!!!!!!!!!!
...now hold on here folks.....i have
...ran into him last night...quite handsome too with a big beautiful smile...but, he couldn't get me to 'bite'....so the devil is gone, for now.........................
I wrote a couple of hubs about my true experiences. It still gives me the chills to think about it.
I was a Christian for whole three months.
Watched the movie, called- The Exorcist: Got to the part showing a little girl shooting off pea soup across the room. I Ran into the restroom, sank my head into the can, wail looking and crying out for God.
Felt like an ass, afterwards , it was Hell of a trip, never went back.
hey CP...yor back...droppin' by to say hi!...must be cold on the other side of those big hills.
Had a moment to pop in, for the hell of it. Creston is not too bad for cold, I like it better because of more sun and less rain than Vancouver, The people have time for a relationships, rather than stressing over bills (those bills have eyes).
not sure it's to do with being a christian...sounds more like being really scared...but if it felt like the devil, well who knows really?
I was scared, yet it helped turn me into the fearless and loving person I am today, even wrote a Save Satan fun hub on it,
The Satan like things, seem to turn up a lot for religious types because how often would Satan show up for atheists?. Satan is created in the mind from things like very sick so called spiritual leaders, drugs and fugly movies.
I don't believe in the devil or hell. But I had a dream where the devil came to my school and was sitting in the teacher's chair waiting for me. No one else was in the class. It super creeped me out back then, when I was not yet a teenager. I still feel that was something really evil and yet I will still say I don't believe in the devil or hell. But, I doubt I will ever be comfortable as long as I remember how horrified I felt, right to the marrow of my bones, when I had a conversation with what ever was in that dream.
hmm. listening to you. not sure about the devil myself either but when something terrible happened a few years ago, something really, really terrible (which i prefer to keep to me right now) i did wonder if the blackness i felt round me was something to do with the devil/evil. I still wonder myself. Easy to just say "I don't believe in the devil" when you've had some sort of devil feeling experience crop up in your life. hmm. It's why I put the question out there...to hear other's experience or take on it....
I worked in a very hostile work place for several years. Eventually I became a supervisor and then I realized that I had no choice but to at least try to do the right thing. In all of this I believed that I had no choice due to legality and I also believed that they would also do the right thing. I was never more wrong in my life and I could not describe how far a company would go to undermine someone who was trying to simply do his job. Paranoid is an understatement when just about anything you could suspect would happen. Purpose attempts at verbal entrapment, people following you, your home computer being hacked and your e-mail account, simply to many coincidences. The whole time you our being silenced by threats. Eventually, I ended up on grave yard, placed alone at a work site in complete darkness. It required me to walk in darkness through underground tunnels and riding man lifts to the top of a massive structure. I was horribly depressed and more angry then at any point in my life. I truly wondered if I was justified if I completely lost it. Standing in complete darkness in this creepy depressing place looking off the top of this structure, something told me to jump. I swore I heard it and looking behind me I felt the hair on the back of my neck about to fall off. It was a dusty place and a cloud of dust was rising from an area I had not travelled in and was just floating in the cold air. I had never spent so much time focusing on God in my life and this was long before I reached this situation and I did not understand this test. I really did not care about being alive but the fear that gripped me was outside of what I considered normal fear. Then I remembered the story of Jesus being tested 40 days and nights and suddenly realized I had been in this place about that long. I asked why did it have to be me and suddenly knew why. I was the only one in this place who had the strength to actually stand up to evil and beat them. I took my paranoia and used it to entrap them because it was not a coincidence a few days later. The price for working for these people was horrible and I will never forgive them and the only way for me to let my hate go, was to let it all go. Still later another victim contacted me suffering from the same feelings of paranoia. I had to convince this person that I was on that persons side even and I got another opportunity to defy them. A year later I was working for another employer when several of these people showed up. I had not spoken to any one since I disappeared, but they treated me like a hero and told me I made a difference. Ever since then I have become a huge activist and I fear nothing, not even death and I will never back down in the face of evil.
Thanks for your story.
I do identify with being pushed to the limits...I do wonder what that evil is that 'happened'? (but just 'wondering'!)
I learned a different thing from my experience. I learned that it is a healthy thing to fear the devilishness - because for me it was a type of insanity.
And I learned it was a lot stronger than me. I could never win.. If I'd stayed with those sensations and thoughts, the total black beyond what I could see (that came from extreme grief and pain) I would have chosen to stay close to what was evil.
I didn't want that. I let go.
Still, since time has passed and the evil is no longer about, I do wonder what happened..was it the devil? Does the devil reside in deep despair?
Probably. It is a place without light after all.
Good to think and chat about it.
So, something bad happen, you have a "sort of devil feeling experience" and suddenly the devil exists.
That's some pretty funny logic you have there.
It isn't funny logic A Troubled Man. I'm sorry.
Who knows if the devil exists? Or doesn't?
This must be an on going question surely. Don't writers stretch their thinking and considerations, don't they ask questions because something bothers them?
Isn't that to be respected a little?
Isn't the 'devil' at play in all stories?
Where is the story if it isn't?
How did the devil or evil come to exist etc etc etc.
And if a person feels they might have run into some evil then this is to be respected, surely.
"a sort of devil feeling experience" reads like "touchy feely"....not the same thing.
This requires logic to reply to. Probably not funny.
It wasn't hilarious logic, either. Close, but no cigar.
I'm sure we could ask the same questions about trolls and orcs.
Should it be respected we ask the same questions about trolls and orcs?
If you mean that the "devil" is just a label for bad things happening, then yes. If you mean the "devil" is an actual existing character running around making bad things happen, then no.
Are you saying you haven't done your homework to find out the many various references to origins of the devil/satan/adversary/diabolos/prosecutor/slanderer/Baal Zabul/dragon/serpent/deceiver/lucifer...etc.?
They're just feelings.
I saw no logic in your post, so it was funny.
Evil is very real and a visit to any mental institution or prison will convince you of that real quick. This does not mean that those who perceive the presence of evil our crazy at all. Working security I met many people who had what I call there creep alarm go off and honestly women were right almost every time. I also know that the Devil does not challenge those he already has so do not be discouraged by those untested. There are so many stories about this that they are literally countless. If you recognize evil and face it or change it and it goes away you our perfectly sane. My youngest child who is good by nature saw a complete stranger and out of know started screaming that the person was very bad and evil. He never saw this person in his life but just knew. Later I was warned about this person by another complete stranger and I have never seen either one of them since.
Well SanXuary it was good to read your words on linking insanity to the devil (or to evil). And to sense from your words your sincere knowledge of that side of human nature, and to read that you know that to walk away from it in some way means being 'healthy'. Thanks for those words. I do appreciate sincerity and truth. Looking back on my experience (which was the worst a person has to endure I'd say), I can see it drove me to the edge - where the devil/or evil does reside.
Random devil appearances must be awful. I haven't experienced that.
The devil does exist and there are angels among us. There are GOD's angels and the god of this world has his demonic angels. I have experienced the devil in my home...and some may laugh and think it is a joke or something to joke about. Be careful. The spiritual world is much more real then the world you and I see with our eyes. You can open the door for demonic activity in your life by doing things that the LORD tells us not to do. During a period in my life in which I was very weak and had finally thought that I could no longer handle this trial I was going thru....I heard the enemy tell me to kill myself...I sat in up in bed and screamed at him to leave my home to leave me and my family alone in the name of JESUS......he fled and I have never heard him again. I have heard him tell me to kill myself at least 4 times. It was the spirit of suicide that had followed me since I was a young girl.
It sounds to me as though it was 'the spirit of suicide' getting at you.
It is my experience that the truly terrible events in our lives make us think, or feel, the 'devil's' hand. Certainly the lack of the good spirit makes that moment, or event, or whatever it is, to be a horrendously bleak human experience.
Right then, at the worst moment of all, it occurs to one, that the 'devil' is present. Because it feels so terrible, so Godless.
But you stepped back from taking your life and so you are blessed, I would say.

Okay, that's not actually true. Just seeing how the humour plays.

What Game do you think you've spent the most time on...EVER?I'm talking on or offline. Sure, I put in tons of hours into my FPS games now a days. But back in the day, I must've played ocarina of time much past the allotted time it took to complete the game.

How do you write your books?From my experience, everyone has a different writing method. Is there a certain method you use? Do you share a method with another writer? Just scribble it all down or organize everything? Drawings of your characters, maps of locations, a time line on the wall to help...

Why is it that people dont cook dinner anymore for the family? I find it disturbing that most parents opt for the drive up window then taking 20 - 30 minutes to prepare a simple meal. A little planning goes a long way and probably would save you a bunch of...
