There is no invisible devil, nor invisible God, making man do anything.
Those are your individual choices!
However, there is a devil, a God, and a man.
Ironically, neither the devil nor man listens to God.
This long-running confusion between reality and opinion
prevents people from accepting responsibility for their own actions!
The entire bible, argues man's denial of self?
Not the latter; women.
The single flaw of only telling man's side of the story.
To this day, man is still pointing fingers, while leading.
As the story goes;
it began innocently enough; man was made by design.
As the story unfolds;
"Everything was good"
(the evolutionary period-just acting like the rest).
Then you BEGAN; that meant a change;
"you" became that of a beast.
That change was the arrival of memory.
A designed chemical reaction, when the mind and body matured to an upright position, memory combined with reason, to produce thought
(a varying form of reasoning based on the traits of the holder).
This timeline event is the divide between
science (the study of God) and religion (the description of God).
Religion only backs up to the memory of self (origin of vanity) and therefore only remembers being upright.
To fill the timeline void they required MAGIC. . .
During this time, Man became paranoid; it had no memory to know what thought was but it sounded like a voice and knew everything about itself.
Try and absorb this time; so many variables hitting you all at once. You are leaving a direct, unquestioned communication with the Earth via instinct - which all living organisms have; transitioning into memory of self (birth of vanity); literally a voice inside your head you thought was coming from everywhere and as far as instinct it was.
Now, if that doesn't snap a brain not sure what would.
Man was also unaware, that only the individual heard the voice.
This is the moment when man created two invisible deities;
a good angel and a bad angel.
One making man do good and one making man do bad.
Both became an eternal blame game voiding any association with personal responsibility.
Mankind literally spawn from a psychotic break;
mentioned in, "walking away."
This was the break between the earth's instinctual communication as thought began to override and reinterpret the instinctual communication with God/Earth;
"you began to follow your own path."
Stepping from a world of need; into a redefined world of want.
That hunger is still there and goes unanswered.
Even after becoming self-aware the species did not have enough information to challenge its initial assessment and carried it fwd. Held in check by its own manipulation.
