lol, orangegirl thanks for that, it was my first laugh of the day.
in terms of the christian devil, he isn't real [at least in the craft] you could swear an oath to Lucifer, but he's not as Christianity depicts. he's nothing more than a fallen angel. he doesn't go around making pacts with foolish mortals at midnight at a crossroads on the full moon and that makes you a witch. if it was, i'd be talking to your face, and not on the computer because clearly, we're in 1690.
if i could work my will, before anyone did ANYTHING [be it convert or fling 'facts' about something you disagree with] they would have to do at least an hours worth of research. sadly this isn't my world, so i'm stuck with ethnocentric beings who don't wish to look into stuff. my advice to you gaian is this: RESEARCH. please, before you go any further in your beliefs, read into them. if you believe you made a pact with the devil, look into accounts, historical and recent. if you're wanting to get into Satanism, again, look into actual facts. don't talk to your preacher, or randomly type it into a search engine. you're on SoM there are Satanists here, post a topic asking about it, or type 'satanism' into the search bar located in the upper corner, you can find posts as well as articles on the subject. blessed be.
