The work may progress - DOES progress - but individual progression remains an individual choice. The more controversy that can be raised, the more negative press that can be generated to turn the great unwashed (:-) away from The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, the more Satan (thinks he) gains, and the greater number of our brothers and sisters will be held to a lower kingdom. That is what I think Satan could be gaining.
