Who has more control of our thinking; God or Satan?


I don’t know what God or Satan’s game is, but God giving Satan dominion over our political/physical realm as well as the power to deceive our spiritual/religious realm in us all seems counterintuitive to what a good God would do.

It seems like God is giving Satan the advantage, in terms of our ability to think without deception or Satan’s undo interference.

Rev12;9 And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent,

called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.

Why did God curse us with Satan and her minions?

It cannot be to give us free will as none of us have the free will to never sin. If we did have that, we would have some examples of
people who never sinned.

On another tangent, scriptures say that God himself put’s lies/deception into his prophets and that he decides who will have faith or not by his doling out grace only to those he has pre-selected and thus denies other the ability to have faith or belief.

This biblical contradiction, strangely, refutes all that I put above on Satan. Can Christians clear up this contradiction?

this is all hypothesized on the idea the Bible is literal and accurate if we take the Bible out of the equation then we have no question or conversation

@Greatest I am,
My theory is that God and Satan are not precisely directly opposing forces... God has the power on the spiritual side of things, but Satan has the power on the worldly side of things... This is why people have to fight hard if we want to make the world a better place, and this is why the world is not much worse today, thanks to the efforts and sacrifice of people today and in the past.
It is biblical, even Jesus himself says people will do far more than he can by himself!
But, again, its just a theory, i do not make any guarantee i am correct!
