Why? So he can let his decoys in to lead us astray. He feeds off of our “flesh” desires. He is the master of trickery. Thus, his main goal is to get us so wrapped up in pity, anger, hate, lust, money – essentially, the “feel goods” – over indulging in anything that makes us “feel good” even if we know better. He then wants our lack of self-control to weigh on our minds (emotions/feelings) so we can feel guilty, unworthy, useless – you know BAD about who we are and to whom we belong. He would love nothing more if we would simply quit believing in God. In fact, he wants us to denounce God.
