Yes, but the words were not mine. I merely quoted what Jehovah God has to say on the matter. And then gave some proof positive points to show that
it is true. There are many other points to show that mankind is really in Satan's control. For example, Paul, giving a prophecy about the "last
days" given to him by Jehovah gave a list of the predominate mental disposition mankind would be in during this time, and this is what he had to say
about the matter:
(2 Timothy 3:1-5) . . .But know this, that in the last days critical times hard to deal with will be here. 2 For men will be lovers of themselves,
lovers of money, self-assuming, haughty, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, disloyal, 3 having no natural affection, not open to any
agreement, slanderers, without self-control, fierce, without love of goodness, 4 betrayers, headstrong, puffed up [with pride], lovers of pleasures
rather than lovers of God, 5 having a form of godly devotion but proving false to its power; and from these turn away.
Is it not true that the list above coincides very well with the mental disposition of society around the world today? Are not the majority of the
people, lovers of themselves, and self-assuming, and naughty, and disobedient to their parents, and unthankful, and disloyal, have no natural
affection, have no self-control, are puffed up with pride, have a love of pleasure rather than a love of God, and even those who claim to be
worshipers of God prove false to their claims by their gross and shameful conduct?
I am not arguing that he is here to win you over. He already has the world in his control. He utilizes his political, religious, and commerical
systems of things to keep people enslaved and under his influence and control. It is not a matter of trying to get you under his control. He already
has basically the entire world. There are a few he has no control over. He just doesn't want you to learn the truth, he doesn't want you to find
the group of people who are not in his control. If your eyes were open you would be able to see that.
I am not arguing for or against the positions stated in posts previous to mine. I have been careful to avoid doing that. I am merely arguing what
the Bible states is true, and showing you that Satan is really the ruler of the world, and already has all mankind in his control. Whether he uses a
certain song or group of singers is beside the point.
Not all music is bad. But one does have to be selective. Because any music that permeates the spirit of the world, and of Satan is harmful to
This contradicts what you previously posted. He doesn't need bait if he already has the world in his boat. So which is it?

I agree that the Bible states that all mankind has already been mislead by Satan. For example it states:
(Revelation 12:9) So down the great dragon was hurled, the original serpent, the one called Devil and Satan, who is misleading the entire inhabited
And in another place:
(2 Corinthians 4:4) . . .among whom the god of this system of things has blinded the minds of the unbelievers,. . .
He uses different techniques to keep different people in his control and power. To some he may offer false religion. He has many religions for any
type of whim that man may have, as long as it does not profess Jehovah God and his kingdom government.
He so-called Christians are under his control. Christendom is demonic and condemned in the Bible. But not even this should perplex us for God
(2 Corinthians 11:14) 14 And no wonder, for Satan himself keeps transforming himself into an angel of light.
Satan utlizies nationalism and racism to keep the people divided, he uses worldly politics, pride, selfhish ambitions, he utlizes the occult to
appease to the spirtual minded people who have big egos and who are either curious about the occult or who want power for whatever reason. They may
already be mislead, but by utilizing each form of trickery he is able to keep people blinded.
When the scripture states that Satan has blinded the minds of the unbelievers, there is a means he is doing it. And the Bible tells us how. But we
are not ignorant of his designs:
(2 Corinthians 2:11) . . .that we may not be overreached by Satan, for we are not ignorant of his designs.
(Ephesians 6:11) Put on the complete suit of armor from God that YOU may be able to stand firm against the machinations of the Devil;
(1 Peter 5:8) Keep YOUR senses, be watchful. YOUR adversary, the Devil, walks about like a roaring lion, seeking to devour [someone].
