3rd Nephi 9:2

Wo, wo, wo unto this people; wo unto the inhabitants of the whole earth except they shall repent; for the devil laugheth, and his angels rejoice, because of the slain of the fair sons and daughters of my people; and it is because of their iniquity and abominations that they are fallen!

The devil rejoices when mankind does not follow God. His goal is to get as many people away from God as possible. He does this by twisting to truth and deceiving us. We are all affected by it. This is why we are so thankful for the coming of Christ to wash away our sins that we do. But to ensure our salvation we have to follow Christ’s instructions. If we get any part of them wrong we are back in the same poor situation.
