When Satan tempted the Lord with the rule over all the kingdoms in the world, the Lord did not dispute that they were under his power or not. The Devil has been described as prince of this world, according to scripture, in fact. This goes a long way in making sense of just how this world operates, why there seems to be so much injustice, so much stupidity, so much war. “The loveliest trick of the Devil is to persuade you that he does not exist.” [Charles Baudelaire] One might think, if this saying is true, that maybe we could be doing better if we had not such influence. Perhaps we are not as stupid as we seem, in many, many a case. It is just left to question just how much sway the forces of evil has. And maybe in some cases, it is little or none, too.
