    @ Lolita, I totally agree with your whole comment. The devil uses those individuals most that say he doesn't exist. The rapper Jay-Z said exactly that in an interview.

    It's all "between the ears," isn't it? SATAN works the "mind" & is why it's IMPERATIVE that we "STUDY" (II Tim 2:15) GOD'S WORD (Eph 6:10-18) to be able to "STAND THE "WILES" OF THE DEVIL"!!!

    Josh 24:15 "choose!" WE have the authority to do as we pls now! He has left instructions (WORD) & allows us to do either good or evil w/o interfering! He will "eliminate" as in WORD!

    Clearly you know nothing of Christianity. Most informed Christians know that the creation story is mostly symbolic and a poetical way of telling the story. Also, are you saying the devil is good?
