The First Case proposed, Whether or not may Satan appear in the Shape of an Innocent and Pious, as well as of a Nocent and Wicked Person, to afflict such as suffer by Diabolical Molestation? 225
The Affirmative proved from Six Arguments:--

Cotton Mather put himself in the hands of an angry god whilst threat and entreaty often failed to scare his flock to follow. The thing we must remember in reading this and other works about this very dark period of our history and the resultant corruption of christianity is that these pathetic, frightened and weak belivers were actually the sons and daughters of the founders of our "new world" and our nation. It is always so much easier to blame the weak and helpless than solve our own problems with positive and constructive behavior. Worth reading if you are not familiar with Mather and his puritanical murders and fanatics. Thanks to ManyBooks for providing this.
