Why do most who profess to be Christian give to satan more power and authority than scripture does?


1 John 3:8 it is said, "To this end was the Son of God manifested, that he might destroy the works of the Devil." **Jesus defeated him. He only has power to tempt, he cannot make anyone do anything.** What you do when tempted is up to you.** James 1:13-15 13 Let no one say when he is tempted, "I am tempted by God"; for God cannot be tempted by evil, nor does He Himself tempt anyone. 14 But each one is tempted when he is drawn away by his own desires and enticed. 15 Then, when desire has conceived, it gives birth to sin; and sin, when it is full-grown, brings forth death.

    and where do the bonehead ideas (tempations ) come from?

    Same old eric.

    Read again and look at the words. I said the devil can't make anyone do anything, that what you do with the temptation is up to you. what are you really trying to say?

    True! Written perhaps between 48-49 A.D. James is probably the first Books of the New Testament BEFORE "Grace and Truth!" No more "works" least any man should boast" (Eph 2:9)NOW the Holy Spirit "works" changing us "fm glory to glory"(2 Cor 3:18)
