My Comment: It’s time for Christians to acknowledge satan is real and he’s a real and present danger. 1Peter 5:8 Be alert and of sober mind. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour. The spirits of old are not myth’s and just stories designed to keep children in line, they are very real and dangerous. It’s time to wake up and teach this. God Bless this man.
(Excerpt from the C.P.) Nicky Cruz knows a thing or two about the devil and he’s here to set the record straight. The son of a satanic priest and priestess, Cruz grew up in Puerto Rico witnessing frightening supernatural events at his home and later experienced spiritual attacks after he left the New York City gang life to be a Christian. What he wants to let people know in his latest book, The Devil Has No Mother (Worthy Publishing, July 2013), is that the devil exists and he’s worse than people think he is.

Former The Mau Maus gang leader Nicky Cruz after his conversion with evangelist David Wilkerson, who led him to accept Jesus Christ.
“My father was a satanic priest. I was born into a curse. I tasted hell,” said Cruz, best known as the former leader of the notorious NYC gang The Mau-Maus, and who was evangelized by the late American Christian evangelist David Wilkerson, to The Christian Post. Wilkerson wrote the bestseller The Cross and the Switchblade, founded the addiction recovery program Teen Challenge, and was the founding pastor of Time Square Church in New York.
The title of Cruz’s book, The Devil Has No Mother, comes from an old Spanish saying that refers to a boy that is bent on evil and destruction and is a lost cause. And as the title suggests, the book is meant to expose the devil’s true evil and destructive nature.
“Satan must be unmasked,” Cruz writes in the book. “He is not a harmless caricature or a myth left over from humanity’s primitive past. He’s not a symbol of human wrongdoing. He’s not the personification of some generalized force. He’s a real being – and the most awful one we could imagine. A hopeless case.”
The former merciless warlord said he felt compelled to write the book because American Christians and the U.S. Church are increasingly “ignorant” and “apathetic” toward the threat posed by the devil and are just drifting along with the culture.
