One year I was teaching history instead of English. The classes were full! My first class began at 8 am. I would rush in the door just at the right time! All the students would be in their places by this time.
On my desk was a hand-drawn picture of Satan. It was a really good drawing, but the subject was terrifying. I would stick the picture in my desk each day. The next day there would be another picture of Satan. This went on for a week.
Finally, I got to class early one morning and the only student in the room had put the picture on my desk. Since no one else was in the room, I took the picture over to this young man and asked him if he had drawn this very detailed picture. I praised his artistic ability and told him he could draw for me anytime…but I never wanted to see another satanic image on my desk, Please….
About a week later, he came in and walked up to me to tell me something. Around his neck was a beautiful crystal stone! Without thinking anything about it, I touched the crystal and told him how gorgeous it was.
He screamed! A loud scream! He chastised me for touching the stone and told me it would have to be blessed again. I had ruined the spell. Well, I stepped back and apologized. He told me the high priest had blessed it.
I was told by another student who saw the incident (heard the scream) that my student was in a satanic church. Crystals were sacred and blessed.This was to be my first encounter with someone who worshipped Satan.
The next day, the student did not come to class. In fact, I never saw him again. My touching of the crystal really shook him and quite possibly got him into a lot of trouble. I can hope that he finally found a better object of worship.
It was also a shame that his artistic abilities were being used for Satan. There were other students over the years who were also into satanic rituals, etc. I will share one or two with you later.
