When you create a song or painting, do you put a part of your soul into it?
One hundred percent.
Do you think when an artist passes away, their soul remains on the Earth?
When the artist creates something that is righteous, it lives forever. If it's not righteous, it just fall down. So you have another part — some artist who follows Satan and do the satanic thing. The satanic thing is that you can get rich quick and then afterwards you die and give your soul to Satan for making you rich quick! You say stupid words like there's no God. Rich quick, die quick, lose your soul quick!
You talk a lot about the power of creation — what about the power of destruction?
The evil part of the man that tries to compete with God — him creates something that tries to prove that God does not exist. It is total destruction. (Laughter)
You're enjoying this?
Of course I'm enjoying it!
You should start your own church!
Thank you. One day — one day it will happen.
