The devil gave humans critical thinking, which God didn’t want. He wanted us to not eat from the tree of knowledge so we could basically be thought-slaves for eternity, but the devil did us a favor and turned the tables there with a single conversation.
He understands human nature, but doesn’t judge you for being human.
He accepts god’s unwanted children unconditionally. And still, he’s the enemy. Why? Because he can take it. Because he’s not our hero. He’s our silent guardian. A watchful protector.
