    To Bruce - something I forgot - No, satan has no power over GOD'S people, i.e. Job, Paul etc.; He has been given power in this earthly life over sinners - before they are saved. Yes, he is the god of this world.

    You should read that part of job and you'll see he never asked. nobody said anything about the power of God. you're in denial of Satan's power! he destroys lives with his power! That's why you need the armor of God. if he have no power we wouldn't need armor! We would be living in the Garden of Eden.

He can play with the weather, he can play with the minds of people to hurt others! He's taken moreto hell then that are going to heaven I think thats power! He is called ruler,king,prince of the air. Put on all the armor to stand against his power!
