Something (Semi-) Unique with Theolocast: The “World System”?
The World System is an interlocking set of structures influenced by evil spirits and is ultimately headed by Satan; its chief purposes are deceiving human beings and separating people from God.
The World System is diametrically opposed to its spiritual counterpart, the Kingdom of God. (The purpose of the Kingdom of God is reconciling people with God and expanding God’s reach in the world.)
