The Devil is an actual person rather than a concept, Pope Francis has claimed.
Satan is smart and should not be argued with, the Pontiff told TV2000 , a Catholic broadcasting network.
“This is evil, it is not a diffuse concept, it’s a person,” he said.
“Satan is smart, he tells us that when we kick him out he will go, but then after a while, when you are distracted after a few years, he comes back, with seven companions worse than him.
“He is very polite, knocks at the door, rings the bell, comes in politely, and in the end he comes in with his friends.”

“With Satan you can’t argue.”
