Lull The Conqueror: Cut:

The War in Heaven doesn't really succeed at all; my impression of Broke Your Arm Punching Out Cthulhu is more like "you beat the godlike entity for right now, but you lost something irreplaceable in the process and/or didn't really kill it." His success in corrupting mankind might be an example, except that that was apparently what God had planned all along.
  • Corrupting =/= testing. If Areopagitica is any sort of indicator, Milton believed that true faith comes from questioning. God would want Man to question his place in the universe, debt to God, purpose, etc, but he doesn't necessarily want him corrupted.
