To blame Satan for everything. It's not whether you win or lose, but how you lay the blame?
Even ((IF)) Satan is at work in the lives of people, is anything ever achieved by blaming him? Isn't blame just another way of admitting failure, (and Satan's success)?
I see A. Paul as one who never gave Satan any credit for achieving anything and -in fact- essentially never even acknowledged his existence!
Politicians are smart enough not to blame their constituents for their own failure ... even THOUGH the constituents often ARE the cause. They're smart enough to realize that once they blame their constituents, they'll be perceived as losers.
It's just too easy to blame Satan for all the bad stuff. It's much harder to face one's own failure and take responsibility for that.
