**I’d like to open a thread to make people agree to that, for it’s ever so clear.
I had in this forum opened a thread >THE LORDS PRAYER< but nobody answered, so I gave up. But in this prayer, we have the request: And “lead us not into temptation“. Of course God doesn’t lead us into temptation, but he allowed Satan to sift us like wheat, as Jesus told Petrus in Luke 22,31 (match also Matth 16,18; Joh 21,15-17; (31-34) and Joh 13,36-38).
Now, those who live far away from God, far off the one and only way, the truth and the life who is Jesus, just do what pleases Satan without caring a dime about how that doing reflects on others, on our next, on God, and they love money more than God. Satan doesn’t have to care about them. They are his anyway, adding sin on sin on their account – sometimes more by failing to do right, than by doing wrong.
Those however who are tempted, for instance with doubts and all sorts of things that are not right (and we jolly well know what’s right and what’s wrong) are found very interesting to Satan, for if he wins those or his league, he snatched away from God one more of Gods beloved.
It’s God, Satan wants to hit. Not us. We are of the least interest to Satan. We simply are “something” to help Satan fulfil his aggression against God, if we follow Satan’s request. To him, a piece of dirt he could provoke God with.
So, those who are with God, are first target to Satan.
If we feel temptation, let’s be proud of it and resist as now we know, we are on the way to God, but Satan feigns us a better way. This “way” shining bright, golden, beautiful, would be the way to hell.**
