    Not correct. And to be honest ... I find the tone of this post to come across as rude; even insulting. You could try adding me to your ignore list if you really feel this way about me. :brokenheart:

    As for "tools of satan". I don't mind people who disagree with me; but I prefer things to remain mutually respectful; which is even fun when everyone can pull it off.

    I'll happily apologise if you prove me wrong. Of course the immediate leap to "well I'm offended!" Doesn't bode well, but I'd be happier proven wrong than right, so by all means...

    So you made an unsubstantiated claim and presented it as a definitive fact.

    Where I’m from, that’s called preaching, not debating.

    Odd.

    Why did God let that happen?

    What does [he] plan to do about it?

    One thing to keep in mind when thinking about conspiracies and elites is that people who are seemingly less important than those who occupy top positions can actually out-rank the supposedly more senior members of the conspiracy within the conspiracy - for instance President Trump holds the highest office there is in the USA but he is controlled by people who have a seemingly lower rank/status who control him

    I don't believe Satan exists. However, I think you are making an intelligent observation nevertheless.

    We humans unfortunately have a need to feel superior to others which leads to arrogant behavior. Leaders are born with the arrogant ambition for power over others. Their highly arrogant followers believe that their group is superior to competing groups.

    It only takes a highly arrogant leader, like Adolf Hitler, to persuade the most arrogant minority segment of the German population that, since they are members of a master race, they are entitled to take land from their Eastern neighbors by force.

    So, I don't think it's Satan but the concept of leadership that is at the root of the world's problems. But, you're right that the power of a hierarchy allows a small group at the top to effect strong control.

    You're so close, it's astonishing. Remove the bit about Satan, throw in some Marx, if you're feeling sassy maybe a bit of Luxemburg, and you'll be right on the money.

    The opinions differ enormously.

    Isn't God the one who said that if we worship him, obey his rules, do good, don't lie (etc, ) that he will reward us with abundance?

    No one is perfect and the only one who is allowed to judge anyone is God himself.

    Good and bad are existent everywhere. It begins from the bottom up all the way from the top down. I've met plenty of amazing people with high status. Plenty of them pray their gratefulness daily and appreciate God first thing in the morning.

    When I wake up I pray and thank God for everything.

    It's a matter of the heart and the personal values someone lives by. It's that they are hiding who they are its that they don't live by their past anymore.

    Thank you for reading my response.

    With Love

    Preaching conspiracy theories that have no basis is not a responsible position for a person to take. Do you have evidence that pandemics were caused by lab-created organisms? No. You do not. But here you are spouting nonsense and calling it real.

    It's called disinformation.

    Was Jimmy Savile just another pedophile or did he do it ritualistically to honor satan?

    According to this article and others he was honoring satan. Jimmy Savile was part of satanic ring

    Are you saying that acts directed to a fictional being cause that being to become existent?

    If there is so much disinformation and one cannot tell facts from fiction, then how can anything we learn be trusted?

    No, but they surely seem to believe so. Anyway there is much more evidence. This is nothing actually ...

    It is nothing. If he were claiming to give offerings to Toolabangothothasuage, that would mean nothing.
