I want to show how participating in the occult can ruin one's life, not to glamorize it in any way or give people ideas about sensationalized exorcisms, spiritual warfare, and the like. My intention is the exact opposite, to show how occultism can be destructive and that God's way is THE way.
As a novelist, I would try not to sensationalize or add to or take from God's Word in doctrine like some novelists do. Does that make sense? I'm not sure I explained what I mean by that.
I think fiction can tell the truth although it's fictional. Stories tell an experience, and I believe I can glorify the Lord by telling stories which illustrate sin, obedience and God's response to them. The parables are true but are also fictional in some sense. They are stories used to teach and illustrate doctrine.
