Dearborn, Il - Aaron Plaster thinks he has the solution to all of the problems humanity has faced since the beginning. For years, Plaster has wrestled with the problem of evil in the world and the billions upon billions of people that are lost and will never be saved.
"I just can't get over the thought that out there in the world there are all these lost people who are never going to be saved" said Plaster. "I know Jesus died and all of that to save people, but not everyone accepts him and believes in him. I know this might sound blasphemous but if Jesus' death and resurrection was supposed to save the world it's not doing a very good job. What I mean is that it saves those few here and there that make a decision, but how can the rest of the billions of people out there be saved if Satan keeps tricking them?"
So Plaster set out about a year ago to find a solution for the problem of sin until this past week when the idea came to him.
"I read the Bible over and over again, and finally it hit me" he said. "The problem all began with Satan. Satan apparently fell long before Adam and Eve did, and he tempted Adam and Eve to sin. The Bible also depicts Satan as causing trouble throughout the earth. So it all goes back to him. If there were no Satan then there would be no sin. But Satan is a spirit, so I can't destroy him, but I shouldn't want to destroy him, because I'm supposed to love my enemies right? So if salvation is to ever come to all the earth then Satan must get saved."
Now Plaster has set out on a campaign to "convert Satan" spreading his idea on the internet and to every Christian he comes in contact with.
"We've got two main parts to this plan" stated Plaster. "First we're going to get people to pray for the old Devil. We need people praying for his salvation. Secondly, we need people to witness to him. We can't see him, but we know he's there, so the best way to do that is to just talk out loud and tell him the gospel. Like yesterday morning I was sitting in my kitchen witnessing to the Devil saying 'God loves you and has a wonderful plan for your life, if you would only ask him into your heart today Satan.' I know he's listening, and I hope that he gets the message."
So far people have been reluctant to join with Plaster in his "mission" citing passages of Scripture that show that Satan's fate is already sealed. Still Plaster is determined to spread his message of "hope" for the world.
"If Satan gets saved then it's all over" said Plaster. "There would be no more evil, no more pain, and everyone would go to heaven because there would be no more devil to trick people into not making a decision. Everyone needs to jump on board with this mission."
Plaster is currently raising money to pursue his "mission work" full time. Donations can be made in both U.S. Dollars or Euros.
