Demons. Satan. Evil. These themes are increasingly appearing in songs, music videos and movies. What does it mean and why does it matter? Christian Post reporter Ian Giatti breaks it all down on this week's episode of "The Inside Story."

"The thing is, the devil doesn’t show up with horns and pitchforks, but actually masquerades as an angel of light, something beautiful, glorious even," Giatti wrote in a recent review of rapper Doja Cat's new music video in which she dons a demonic persona. He cited 2 Corinthians 11:14, which reads, "And no wonder, for Satan himself masquerades as an angel of light."
