  • The Importance Of Eve On Adam And Eve

    When Satan set’s his eyes upon Adam and Eve, it is doubtful they he knew how easy it would be to corrupt their minds. Eve, in my opinion was probably the easiest to manipulate and that is why Satan was delighted to come upon her first rather than Adam.

Why was Saint Michael crying out so angrily and wildly? Why was the roar of Azrael, the angel of Death joining in so alarmingly? She stepped into the street.

  • Proctor's Inferno Analysis

    What has brought upon this madness? It is as though the entire town of Salem has been swept up in a wild inferno of vengeance – an inferno surely herding us all into the wrathful grasp of Satan. Surely, for all the years of learning, the wisdom I have found in my books I should have doused this folly before it began! I see the brand of condemnation on my hands, as bright and stained as it were the ink that with those hands sold the souls of the good Christian men and women of Salem. I have not…
