And again in James 4:4, “Ye adulterers and adulteresses, know ye not that the friendship with the world is enmity with God? Whosoever therefore will be a friend of the world is the enemy of God.”
And again, “Then was Jesus led up of the spirit into the wilderness to be tempted of the devil.” Matthew 4:1
Where did you or any Christian or anyone else get the idea that satan is not real?
From the king of liars himself, from the master of disguise and deceit, from the one who loves nothing and no one, the one who cannot be satisfied and will never cease the demise of each and every person - satan seeks to devour and destroy every Christian or non-Christian, man, woman or child, born or unborn.
There is one truth that is seldom discussed concerning your one, true enemy. You cannot harm satan, kill him or maim him. You cannot stop him, change him, teach him or convert him. There is nothing you can do to satan to harm him, but there is a lot you can do to keep satan from harming you."
