    To Bernice Maxwell - Sorry Bernice, satan is NOT going to 'worship' God. Why do you think satan is trying to get everybody to follow him instead of God? You've heard of or know people who hate, i.e. Hitler, etc.; Well, where do you s'pose that hate in them came from? Maria, you need to acknowledge that satan is pure evil, or you won't make it. This is said with love to you, pls b'lve me.
