Jesus of Nazareth was driven into the desert by the Holy Spirit, while he was

there Satan appeared to him and tempted him with three questions. Jesus said, “Well,

Satan, if you answer I will answer yours.” Satan agreed.

Jesus was hungry. Satan said to Jesus, “If you are the Son of God, command this

stone to turn to bread.” Jesus replied, “Scripture has it, not on bread alone shall man

live.” Then Satan transported Jesus high above the Earth and said, “If you worship me I

give you power over all the kingdoms of the Earth.” Jesus replied, “You do homage to

the Lord your God and Him alone you shall adore.” Finally, Satan took Jesus to the

paraphet of the Temple and said, “Throw yourself down from here, for scripture has it

that the Angels will protect you.” Jesus replied, “Scripture has it, You shall not test the

Lord your God.”

“Now Satan,” said Jesus it is my turn to ask you some questions.” “Would you

agree, that Evil exists?” “Yes,” said Satan “I guess I would have to agree.” “Next,” said

Jesus, “Would you agree that you, Satan, are Evil?” Satan thought it, and said, “Yes, I

agree I am Evil.” Jesus said, “Would you agree following the Pagan Greeks that Evil is

a lessening of The Good?” “Yes, I agree.” Said Satan. “Then, logically,” said Jssus,

“would also agree that Evil involves subtractive magic?” “Yes,” said Satan, “I am bound

by logic and that logically follows.” “Excellent,” said Jesus, “then would also agree,
logically that you, Satan, are subject to subtractive magic?” “Yes” said Satan. “Then,”

said Jesus, you must conclude, logically, that you Satan will soon go out of existence.”

“Yes,” said Satan, and Satan then disappeared and went out of existence, only to appear

as Saint Anthony the Archangel, devoted to the Individual Good.
