Because Christians refuse to learn the truth of God. It is very easy, in fact easiest to blame the devil for their faults than to own up to and conquer the darkness that they allow live inside of them - the Christians. undecided

The "devil" feeds on the Christians disobedience of Jesus Christ's commandments/teachings, sin against God Himself. undecided

The only way to defeat this devil is to make the conscious decision and choice to obey rather than disobey. Those who refuse to make this choice are those whose egos control their lives as they refuse to die to self just as Jesus Christ has commanded of anyone who will be worthy of Him. undecided

So, next time you are tempted to blame the devil, remember instead that it is your fault that the devil still has a hold on your life and not the devil's. undecided

Please help spread the word to those around you. undecided

Whenever you hear someone say things like, "the devil is the problem", or "the devil is tempting me", or "the devil is attacking me", tell them that it is not the devil's fault but their fault since the only reason the devil can have a hold on one's life and situation is simply because one continues to choose sin over obedience to the commandments and teachings of Jesus Christ, a life of iniquity over a life of faith in God. undecided

And what again is sin? Sin is nothing more than a choice make to disobey God's Law, the teachings and commandments of Jesus Christ, the New Covenant Law in the Kingdom of God. undecided

So many out there think that by obeying their pastors or their abominable "spiritual fathers" or even their parents, or even Paul the apostle, they are in compliance with God. No, they are instead enabling the devil still by their continued sin against God. God never asked any one who believes in Jesus Christ to bow in obedience to any man. undecided

Jesus Christ has made it clear to all that those who love Him are those who obey His teachings and commandments, which is the Truth of God, the only one that is able to set one free from the clutches of sin, and the devil! undecided

"And ye shall know(accept and obey) the Truth, the teachings and commandments of Jesus Christ, the Law of God, and the Truth shall set you free from slavery to sin"

So stop holding on to the devil while you whine and complain that the devil is the problem. Choose submission to and obedience to the Truth of God, Jesus Christ, and the devil will flee. You cannot command the devil to flee and expect him to do so while you are still holding on to him via iniquity, a life of sin. He will only flee when you choose to let go of sin and the only way is through submission to and obedience of the Truth of God - John 8.

P.S. Faith refers to the act of living in obedience to the commandments and teachings of Jesus Christ , the Truth of God.
