I’m not saying that Pat is correct on this. But it can’t be good to make pacts with the devil. As far as some of the comments I read about God allowing this to happen. If you had the Biblical knowledge of whats actually in the Bible, you would know that After Adam sinned, God cursed the creation, all of it. And it’s Adam’s sin that brought death,disease and suffering into the world.
So it’s man that caused all the death and suffering, dating back to the first sin. The blame is on mankind, all of us, so we did this to ourselves. But God provided a way for all to be saved from their sin, Jesus Christ is that way!
