This Dark Age

A manual for life in the modern world.

By Daniel Schwindt

NOTICE:
This Dark Age is now available in paperback on Amazon. The print version is MUCH cleaner than this online version, which is largely unedited and has fallen by the wayside as the project has grown. If you’ve appreciated my writing, please consider leaving a review on the relevant paperback volumes. The print edition also includes new sections (Military History, War Psychology, Dogmatic Theology).

The personality of the devil

Satan is not a personal name but rather a term describing a function. The Hebrew term ‘Satan’ means simply ‘opponent’. Having located the devil in the soul, we can then make sense of the insistence within some teachings on presenting Satan as a person; seated in the soul, his actions are very much ‘personal,’ but this is a terrifying truth: his actions are personal because springing from our personality, and this means that when given over to the temper, we are the devil. Just as Christ must come to live in us that we may be saved, if we permit Satan to live in us, we will be consumed in the eternal flames, but in either case, we are to choose between identification with Christ, wherein we become one with Christ and his will operates in us, or else we become one with Satan and become Satan, his will and acts being identical with our own.
