He asked in his post why hasn’t God defeated the devil. So also, why is God punishing humans for a fight he is having with the devil?
His post has sparked up mixed reactions as people shared their various thoughts on his question.

It doesn’t really seem like Bisi Alimi is one who studies the bible so well because if he actually does, he should know that God is not in any fight with the devil, and the devil can’t be on the same level with God, not to talk more of God having a longtime battle with the devil.
His statement is wrong and even blasphemous in a way, he is belittling God with it.
God has conquered the devil right from the start, and the devil has received its own judgment already.
Let’s take a look at a place in the bible.
John 16:33 says
“I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.”
This is God saying that people shouldn’t worry because he has overcome the world. By overcoming the world, it means that God has defeated everything in the world, including the devil and its cohorts. Now, why does he still think the devil is in a battle with God?
So, also, his statement about God punishing people because of his fight with the devil is wrong. God doesn’t punish his people. It is those who go away from God and open up their hearts for the devil that face the consequence. This is why we should always do God’s will and be in line with him.
Do you agree with this?
