when your facing God you're rightous and doing good. Whenever you're not facing God, your facing the "devil". It's not a single thing. It's a god who is not God. You cannot cheat on your spouse while facing God, you have to turn away, and face in another direction, when you do that you serve the "devil", again the devil is not a being, he can't make you cheat on your spouse, he can't tempt you. The devil is simply a parable for the god you serve when you are not serving God. Anyway that's how I see it and this will not make sense to someone who has never felt a dedication to facing towards God. I think the strongest I ever felt my connection to God was when I turned away from him and started walking towards infedility. I never got there mind you, just started thinking too serioulsy about it once, the feeling of having let someone down was truly amazing and one of those times when you really feel God and feel a connection.
