He could cause unlimited pain, death, detruction and war all through people following their religion and fighting against people of other religions. This then begs the question if there is an evil force such as the devil did he simply create religion so we would all carry out his wishes while thinking we were doing the oppisite? I remember a quote on a TV programme about religion which kind of fits this idea and that is: If there was no religion there would be good and evil people but it takes relgion to make a good person evil.
Sorry if this has offended anyone as this was not my intension. I have just been thinking about this for a while and wondered what others think.
