When I was in my late teens, I quite quickly discovered a couple of truths. I discovered that the devil really exists and that he is not content with just leaving me alone. I had been forced to go to church up until I was 13 and was confirmed. I was forced to go to confirmation classes every week for several months and I remember hating it. I flippantly failed every test and wondered if I would still be confirmed. I had no more of an idea of who Jesus was than before I began attending church. Church became like school. Wether you had an interest or not you had to buck it up and just plow through it. I thought that because once I was confirmed that was the end of church for me, it didn’t matter if I believed it or cared.
Then I saw the movie, “The Exorcist” and everything changed.
