Sorry, not buying it. You can, if you want, but considering that you think the world is full of demons trying to tempt you away from your god, you'll have to excuse me for feeling pity towards you.
You can laugh but look at all the ads on the internet. Some of them are just disgusting. Where do people get these ideas? Themselves? Then why doesn't everyone do it?
What about drugs? Why do some people need heroin every day? Because they are missing God form their lives and they try to fill that void with drugs, but it doesn't work. That's why so many of them quit the drugs after reading the Bible and becoming Christian. They realize Christ is all they need.
I know you would rather think that if everyone became Christians and started praying and going to church, people would be able to resist the demons and we would have fewer social problems. But the numbers don't bear that out. People are generally good, or societies would not be able to function. Most people don't commit violent crimes. Period. Regardless of religion or lack thereof.
Of those who do commit violent crimes, most of them are young male idiots. (Demons must really be attracted to young guys--maybe they are gay?) Guys eventually grow out of the young and idiot parts and most stop acting up. Again, regardless of religion or lack thereof. That is what the statistics show.
As for the disgusting internet ads, etc, you do realize that the biggest consumers of internet naughtiness are the bible belt states, don't you? The more churchgoing and praying there is in a state, the higher the rates of all kinds of dysfunction--family breakup
, poverty, low levels of education, violence, unemployment, people on welfare, disability and food stamps. Those demons must be really confused.
Police departments know that the meth labs and human trafficking rings that exploit young immigrant boys and girls are found where the most conservative religious folks live. The same holds around the world, where the least religious places have the fewest social problems, lowest crime, etc. That doesn't mean that religious people are bad, but is does imply that religion is not fixing the problems.
The areas of the country most successful economically and socially, with highest levels of education and employment are also the places that are nicest to gay people
. A high percentage of those evil, openly sinning gay couples settling down and adopting kids seems to bless a community with good-paying jobs, nice, safe neighborhoods and award-winning universities. The gay-friendly places are generating the taxes to support the impoverished, troubled, anti-gay communities of the bible belt. Go figure.
There may be some genetic tendencies that make drugs more compelling to some people than others. And there are circumstances that make many people need to mute reality with chemicals-- severe abuse, homelessness, prison. Some people take drugs when given the opportunity, while others don't.
Of the people who take drugs, some become addicted and others don't. It is still a mystery.
People quit drugs after reading the Quran and becoming Muslim. I know of many folks who joined the Nation of Islam in prison and went straight, never committing crimes, drinking or using drugs again. (Hurray Minister Farrakhan.)
People also quit drugs after going through a rehab program or counseling with no religious connotations at all. And many, many people never use drugs to begin with, somehow coping quite happily with the lack of the Christian, Muslim Hindu or Sikh gods in their lives.
