Okay, I see what you mean now.

Yes, I suppose you would have to be right. Except the idea of "winning the grail" is throwing me off because I always view the grail as the Divine Love or Christ Consciousness. Perhaps you can define how you mean the term grail in this case, and it would help me understand what you mean exactly.
I don't see how Satan can win the grail, unless you mean just by keeping us away from it.
And what you said made me think of something I read yesterday about the political/terrorist forces that are raging on the planet at the moment that you mentioned in another post as being all part of this Satanic force. I'll post the link and then post it over at the current affairs board in case anyone wants to talk about it because its really more outer, rather than inner kind of material.
