I think I've accidentally run across the next great religious thriller/ movie plot; re: exorcist or stigmata.
from the New Testament book of Mark: And if Satan rise up against himself, and be divided, he cannot stand, but hath an end.
Devil must be “split” to be destroyed. He is discovered to be a triumvirate being, likened to the Protestant view of GOD. In which, perhaps in some bit of irony, one third, when loosed, destroys the other 2/3rds , which are rotten!!
I’m giggling, but I’m also kind of afraid! ;-P
