Yesterday in Bible class one of the questions was something like "How does God's holiness compare to the current state of the world?" One guy said "Well, the earth is Satan's." Another person quickly responded with, "No, he just claims it. The earth is the Lord's!" The two people went back and forth one more time. The original guy said, "Well, he's been given authority over it for a while." The leader didn't say anything to this point, so that's where the discussion stopped.
What does Scripture say?
What do you believe?
What do most Christians believe?
If a Christian thought the earth belonged to God, and Satan was trying to be a claim-jumper, how would that affect their ideas about the "culture war"?
