  • Collin Goliath on Luke 11:21
    As any owner of a house or a palice will want to keep his property safe from anything or anybody, wich means he will do his utmost to arm himself accordingly... THE DEVIL got nothing and therefor he had to get hold of somebody he can own and he will provide protection by doing all wrong things with the body he posseses...
