already lost

“Lutheran theologian Craig Koester says that form an earthy perspective, evil can seem so pervasive as to be unstoppable.  And watching the evening news would seem to support that idea.  But he says that from a heavenly perspective, evil-darkness and the devil-rages on earth not because it is so powerful, but because it is so vulnerable.  Koester says that satan desperately rages on earth because he knows he has already lost.”
