Thread: They Sold Their Souls

  1. #1

    Default They Sold Their Souls

    I recently stumbled upon this interesting Youtube series called "They Sold Their Souls". It´s about very famous persons that supposedly sold their soul to the devil, for fame, success and glory. In this thread we can discuss whether this is bollony, or if people really get possessed by demons. Personally I believe so. The videos are usually not that long, and I hope you find them as interesting as I do. Let´s start with Jimi Hendrix, as the video has some interesting things to say about drug abuse and it´s biblical context aswell.



    In case you do believe, you might want to pray for the fallen artist(s).

    These 'demons' you speak about - they are called 'mental illness' and 'exhaustion'.
    The requirements these people have to meet every single day are INSANE. Of course, having little time and always being on to run, sooner or later costs its price.

    There were and are many celebrities who associate with Satanic mysticism or worship. I suspect these types are just trying to make their self destructive and degenerate behavior seem cool or mysterious, as though they are tuned into some secret knowledge, when in reality they’re just suffering the consequences of their choices.

    I wasn’t aware being accused of devil worship is the same as associating with its themes voluntarily. Not sure what reaction you were hoping to elicit with these random posts.

    Those celebrities have busy lives...

    Possessed by demons, communists, spending hours on Dungeons and Dragons, mystical meet-ups and Satanic rituals.

    Where do they find time to be personable, driven and good at networking?

    Interestingly most of the artists I will post here admit to having done a pact with the devil themselves... The next one is a bit painful for me to watch as I like their music a lot, but not with a good conscience anymore:

    It runs 10minutes, the first half is mainly about how popular the Beatles were, the second half goes more into their darker side... Like this:

    And don't forget the Beatles send secret diabolic messages in their songs.

    If you are playing Helter Skelter backwards you hear: Kill all the white people! And Sharon Tate!

    On a more serious note:

    If you want to increase the sales of your LPs/CDs, make some satanic/blasphemic comments. You can be sure to trigger the good sunday to church goers. Publicity will be yours and the rebellious youth too.

    No secret pact with the devil only knowing the show bizz.

    The problem with fetishizing the Enemy is some unwell people will take that as a direction. The little I know of Alistair Crowley is he was a very unwell man and associated non church approved sex with Satan worship and I suspect there was horrendous kiddy fiddling rolled into the mess.

    If you demonise your political opponent's success then you're essentially telling people Satan can make you strong, which is utter bulldust from my rational and AFAIK from a Christian perspective. Satan is a liar and an accuser, but not as creator.

    (As a side note vanilla is my favourite! Nothing wrong with vanilla there's a reason its the most popular, but good luck to the pistachio and raspberry folks too).

    Akar,

    The moment you were born you belonged to the devil. That doesn't mean that you have to express yourself as being evil, rather just do what the devil wants you to do which you do admirably yet unknowingly. Denying the existence of God is all that he requires and the world has fallen for that over and over again.

    Like David Koresh he invented some pseudo-religion to have sexual devout woman. Sex and dominance is a common pattern in those little sects with a godlike leader.

    But if you take your Bible seriously Satan is only following orders by God (try to seduce Jesus, the bet about Job...), not the big contrahent of God. That is unbiblical myth.

    He's no real Loki or Lugos.

    Neither god nor the devil exist.

    The idea that someone could both believe in predestination and also evil at the same time is pretty silly.

    As the name "Aleister Crowley" was mentioned, there´s an interesing vid on him aswell:

    Albeit I do not know if he really killed hundreds of chidlren for satan, as he claims.

    Akar,

    If God doesn't exist then where did we come from? If the devil doesn't exist then why are so many, nay, why are all potentially evil?

    Clearly there was a bronze age restructure in the heavens. The other gods roles were made redundant and they were paid out. Many found new roles in other religions where their specialist skills were still valuable. Others took early retirement and spend their time inspiring Hollywood films.

    Technically God already existed, but only took on the present form when that restructure combined several roles under one umbrella position. Of course remuneration improved with the increased responsibility. The new position improved reporting line efficiency considerably.

    Mankind refined its knowledge of God, as it refines all its knowledge over time. It wasn't God that changed: it was man's understanding of Him.

    YHWH took over from his mum, and then tried to rebrand heaven so it looked like it was all his own work. Satan tried to object but he was moved sideways into contracts: he's gone off the rails but there's not much to be done because he still has tenure.

    So can we then say the same for Islam? Mormons? and heaven forbid Methodists!?!
