In defense of the devil

I come in defense of the devil. Too much power has been ascribed to Satan and his minions. He gets blamed for everything. He gets blamed for the ills and bad habits I have. He is accused of starting wars and fomenting family problems.

I can see Satan in hell pleading his case. I had nothing to do with Michael’s lust, greed, envy or anger. Michael did that on his own.

I admit, dear devil. You are right.

But every man is tempted, when he is drawn away of his own lust, and enticed. Then when lust hath conceived, it bringeth forth sin: and sin, when it is finished, bringeth forth death.
James 1:14‭-‬15 KJV
