Agents of Satan: Four Points of Contention

'The Door to Hell' by Khusen Rustamov from Pixabay.

"...there is in them a natural madness, a rabid concupiscence, a wanton fancy, as is seen from their spiritual sins of pride, envy, and wrath.

For this reason they are the enemies of the human race: rational in mind, but reasoning without words; subtle in wickedness, eager to do hurt; ever fertile in fresh deceptions,

they change the perceptions and befoul the emotions of men, they confound the watchful, and in dreams disturb the sleeping;

they bring diseases, stir up tempests, disguise themselves as angels of light, bear Hell always about them..." - From 'The Malleus Maleficarum of Heinrich Kramer and James Sprenger.'
