***Every hour of every day there are charismatics who "bind Satan". You can hear them say the majic words, "I bind you Satan in the name of Jeeeesuuuuuus."
The question is, who keeps letting him loose?***
HA! Very funny. Too bad that Charismatics (and Christians in general) haven't figured out what an itty bitty putty tat he really is. From my perspective (Eph 2:6), he can't touch anyone without permission from his Lord (Job 1-2 for starters). And, maybe one of these days Christians in general will figure out that a stronger than Satan has come and He bound the strong man right before He began to plunder his house (Mat 12:29).
In the service of the Lord,
Unfortunately Satan has been given much more power than he actually has by charismatics and Christians of other persuasions, alomost to the point of the dualistic concept of the gnostics, not realizing that Christ made a spectacle of the powers of darkness on the Cross and bound Satan through the Atonement, Resurrection and the Truth of the Gospel.
Satan is a toothless dog on a short leash.
