Q: Do Vodwizan | Vodou practitioners believe in the devil?
A: I know I believe in god and the spirits. I know there are spirits who are fierce or mean. But I don’t believe in the devil. I know certain spirits are more ‘cho’ fiery, meaning this spirit can cause you perform certain sacrifices that you should never be involved in sacrifices that are not pretty.
For example, in hear-say sometimes you hear about people, when in search of power or political status, choose to do extreme sacrifices. But that’s what I’ve heard. Otherwise I wouldn’t say I believe in an entity who is the devil
