And what about those demons that also possess us, worldly success and its fellows, domination and power? All the sky-demon is is an externalization of them what dwell within us. Don't blame the Guy Upstairs for that. You can't have free will and still blame Him (or Her) for the insanity, depravity and evil we do.

"Better to rule in Hell than serve in Heaven" Lucifer in Paradise Lost

"As we all know, I am a failure in the world. I do not rule people, nor deceive them for the sake of power, nor try to swindle their livelihood into my own possession. I say to them: Please go freely on your way, and I will do my best to follow mine...although this is not a fashionable way of going on, nor even a successful one, it is a thing which I believe in - that people must not tyrannize, nor try to be great because they are little. My dear, you are a great person yourself, in any case, and you do not need to lord it over others, in order to prove your greatness."
