St. Augustine of Hippo

lat. Aurelius Augustinus, (354—430)

St. Augustine (Aurelius Augustinus) was one of the greatest theologians of Western Christianity.

Born: November 13, 354; Thagaste, Numidia
Died: August 28, 430(430-08-28) (aged 75); Hippo Regius, Numidia

Devil does not seduce those predestined to eternal life

St. Augustine thought that devil is "prevented from harming believers":

… “And shut him up, and set a seal upon him, that he should deceive the nations no more till the thousand years should be fulfilled.” “Shut him up,”—i.e., prohibited him from going out, from doing what was forbidden. And the addition of “set a seal upon him” seems to me to mean that it was designed to keep it a secret who belonged to the devil’s party and who did not. ‹…› For what Christian is not aware that he seduces nations even now, and draws them with himself to eternal punishment, but not those predestined to eternal life?
St. Augustine
City of God, v.XX, ch.VII
