More power

Question: Why do the devils prevent me from doing good to my neighbour?

And the elder said to him:  Don' t talk like that. Is God a liar?

Why don't you just admit that you do not want to be merciful?

God say long ago: I have  given you power to thread upon serpents and scorpions and on all the forces of the enemy? So why do you not stamp down the evil spirit?
