“Why does Satan fight so hard? It is the nature of evil to drag as many down with them as possible.”What motivates Satan? It would seem clear that he cannot win. I don’t think of him as being stupid. Why keep going?
I think it is the nature of evil to want to destroy. They cannot create. They cannot be a blessing. All they can do is take the clean and make it dirty. That is why people find the cleanest surface possible to write graffiti on. It is why trashy men visit churches looking for wives. I think it is why some politicians stay in office.
Evil exits. It gets its joy from dragging others down.
The only cure I can suggest is that each of us who claim to be on the side of righteousness do all that we can to keep them from having that joy.
