God is truth and light. The Devil is lie and darkness. Lie engenders fear, anger, avarice, greed, arrogance and so on. Vices engender diseases and sufferings. If you want to get rid of sufferings, treat them with God. Truth is a cure for lie and darkness flees from light in fear.
Everything in this book, I could say a few words, but you will not believe me.

Know, sinner, you are terribly lucky that the devil is very good, if I were in his place, your suffering would be increased tenfold. Good thing I'm not the devil, the devil's smart, he knows not to overdo it with the whip. Suffering is especially good in contrast.

God will punish those in whom there is no love, and his weapon will be the devil. The devil is Cerberus, the faithful dog of God, punishing those in whom there is no love, and therefore faith, truth and beauty.
