I had almost forgotten about The Beautiful Side of Evil by Johanna Michaelsen. Then today I read a post at the From the Lighthouse blog by Berit Kjos. I had also forgotten that Michaelsen saw "angels" from whom she felt joy, light and peace. Kjos writes that this angel sounds very familiar to one we are hearing about today. Who? Think Todd Bently and his angel, Emma.
For those of you who haven't read Michaelsen's book, published in 1982, she tells the story of how her family moved to Mexico when she was young becuse of her father's job. She got into psychic phenomena and was what we would here term the New Age. This is the one big thing that I remember because it stood out so much for me. When she would go to the psychic healer's house, guess who was in the long line with her to see the psychic? Roman Catholic priests and nuns. I've heard this same thing from a missionary to Spain. He said that he had converted a witch there in Spain and when he asked how she learned satanism, she replied, "Through the [Catholic] Church of course."
I think Kjos has hit it on the head. Some of these Third Wave "leaders" are very naive IMO and do not understand the satan that satan has. If you don't believe that, just read Michaelsen's book. You can still get it through amazon.com. It costs under $9.59 there (excluding shipping).
Oh, by the way, Johanna Michaelsen is Hal Lindsay's sister-in-law and he wrote the preface to her book.
