I'll try to make this simple. "Satan is the God of the Earth" is a metaphor. like "cash is king", "so tired I could sleep for a week", "so hungry I could eat a horse"......<quoted text>
Satan doesn't exist, IMO, but my comment was stating that some people claim Satan is the God of the Earth. That is a new concept to me, and so I was just raising it as something that some people here claim.
There are no gods, as far as I know.
Satan = evil, deceit, lies, gluttony, etc. For one to say that Satan is the God of the Earth simply means that his motives, his trickery, has taken hold of a lot of people and it seems to be heading furhter & further in that direction.
Satan can't control anybody directly. All he can do is "whisper" in your your ear, influence you & your judgement. In the end it is the individual that makes their own choices.
