The Devil Is Bad!

My 15 year old son Will and I had a brief discussion about Satan the other day. We were watching a trailer for the upcoming movie The Rite. The film deals with demon possession and exorcism, and we both commented on what a scary subject matter that could be.  I don't spend a whole lot of time worrying about the devil, but I know it is a mistake to dismiss him completely.  Evil is very real.  Just look around you... 

In 1998 a Christian swing band called The W's released an album called Fourth From the Last which featured a hit single called The Devil Is Bad.  This incredibly fun song (and silly video) takes us back to the Garden of Eden and the first temptation, as well as into the desert with Jesus.  It reminds us of how important it is to be aware of evil in our lives, and how important it is to flee that evil.  It was also a song that we played absolutely to death in the youth room at FUMC-Kissimmee back in the day.  We would taunt each other with the chorus- "You are the devil and the devil is BAD!"  It's a great way to remember that in this world you will find troubles, and you will stumble in the darkness.  But Jesus always has and always will be able to kick Satan's butt.  Put your faith in Jesus.  You had better believe in Satan, even though the devil doesn't believe in you.  God does.  That's why he sent us Jesus.  Enjoy today's video and join us every Thursday for another CCM Flashback!

Because of Jesus,
