I don’t know what God or Satan’s game is, but God giving Satan dominion over our political/physical realm as well as the power to deceive our spiritual/religious realm in us all seems counterintuitive to what a good God would do.
It seems like God is giving Satan the advantage, in terms of our ability to think without deception or Satan’s undo interference.
Rev12;9 And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent,
called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.
Why did God curse us with Satan and her minions?
It cannot be to give us free will as none of us have the free will to never sin. If we did have that, we would have some examples of
people who never sinned.
On another tangent, scriptures say that God himself put’s lies/deception into his prophets and that he decides who will have faith or not by his doling out grace only to those he has pre-selected and thus denies other the ability to have faith or belief.
This biblical contradiction, strangely, refutes all that I put above on Satan. Can Christians clear up this contradiction?
It may be that some people want to be ignorant and choose to let Satan deceive them so they can still indulge in the lusts of the flesh, and be proud of themselves.
They put their tribalism above morals.
Religious are stupid though when it comes to sins of, --- bed and bottle, --- as they used to say.
Blame them. Not the sheeple for that bit.
