Satan is a scapegoat created to give Yahweh an excuse for all the bad things he visited on good people. The story of Job is a real hoot, a supposedly infallible, omniscient deity tricked into a bet and letting one of his own angels (fallen, but an angel nevertheless) torment a man who was loyal and righteous just to prove a point. After letting everything get taken, including his entire family, God gives it all back ten-fold. Gee, I guess 10 new children would make losing 1 just an inconvenience. Maybe the 10 wives helped as well. (Sarcasm, in case anyone missed it.)

Satan, if he existed at all, would be God's stooge, if God existed. He tempts people to disobey the supreme Deity and supposedly has all this power and will cause a great battle in the end when all God has to do is will him into non-existence. It's a horribly complicated tale and has exactly zero veracity.

Satan wants you to die or to be his slave, God wants you to be righteous and love even your enemy. I think God is better. But of course, if evil is what you love, then God may not be what you prefer.

If the Bible were a freshly released piece of historical fiction, there would probably be fan theories about how the god in it is actually Satan, and that the Bible is his way of tricking the reader into taking his side. As far as Satan and God go, the Bible reads as if they're like Tyler and The Narrator from Fight Club.

Satan is just a made up character (much like God) because Christians don't want to accept that evil exists in hearts of man. They, nor their God, have to take responsibility for evil deeds if Satan is to blame. I don't fear demons, I fear people. People do the bad deeds in this world by their own choice.

There's no such thing as a created being named Satan. Satan is a symbolic name for the visible world we live in where God's people perceive good and evil. Whatever appears to be evil in this world is called Satan by Christians and other religious stupid people.

My YLT & EMPHATIC DIAGLOTT Story book Translations make NO mention of the term Satan!

That's why e.g. MCB can't support his Satanic ideology using them, despite his lies and false claims that he could using any versions!

Let's see these self acclaimed xtians try supporting their Satan teachings using them?

Off ya go and much, much, much, much better luck than Suicidal prone Psycho MCB!

I really wondered about including this story in the Bible.

You can't tempt God, but apparently Satan did.
Satan isn't an effing idiot, he would have to know God is omniscient, and that He would know the outcome.
He also would have to know that God would know what he was thinking.

Seriously, think about the implications for a moment, here. Would you play poker with a mind reader, knowing when you sit down at the table, its a mind reader? So why did Satan? What if that was the underlying point for Satan's motives: "Look, humans, this is what this dude thinks of you. Aw, gee, sorry your family and friends died, and you underwent torture and sickness.... but... here is a new family, and lots of money to make up for it! We're good, right?"

God, at least the God of the Bible, would have to have NO concept of His creation to act in the manner that He does.
Here we have an advocate for Islamic arranged marriages demonstrating that children can consent to sex.

Apparently, theists on this forum have decided that "troll" means non-theist. Either that or they've figured out that it's easier to call someone a "troll", than to actually formulate a counter-argument.

God's death toll from the Bible - Millions (possibly billions)
Satans death toll from the Bible - Ten (but only after being taunted to kill by God)

Christians have never figured this out but Satan is the good guy. God is the villain.

The Bible even confirms that by stating that God created evil (Isaiah 45:7), God created Satan, and God created Hell. And he created each of them in full foresight.

Actually we also know that the biblical god = the greatest Satan of them all

1. Col. 1:16-17

2. 1 Chronicles 21:1 reads.. And Satan stood up against Israel, and provoked David to number Israel.

There is a parallel passage to this, another account of the same incident recorded in 2 Samuel 24:1

This reads "And again the anger of the LORD was kindled against Israel, and he moved David against them to say, Go, number Israel and Judah". So that the Satan that provoked Israel in 1 Chronicles, is called the LORD in 2 Samuel.

Maybe the deity was sitting up in heaven one day feeling bored, and wondered what it could do to relieve it. Suddenly it had a wonderful idea, by creating humans with all their flaws, and free will as a wild card, would ensure its entertainment for all eternity, lol!

Well the problem with that suggestion is that IF these self acclaimed xtians believe they have Freewill, then they need to also explain why they all keep freely choosing to Sin?

Some of them, of the unpleasant 'born again' ilk, believe in the 'once saved, always saved' garbage. They believe that once they ask Jesus into their life, however bad they are thereafter, St Peter will still wave them through the Pearly Gates!

Ethan

You haven't explained what is so bad about Satan?

You noticed huh?

Which makes you a _______ in this thread?

I thought you wanted me to leave you alone?

lol You still think the passive aggressive thing will work huh? Already on the bandwagon to defend another troll?

I'm going to flag this post of yours so that when you begin to attempt the dishonest, "I'm a poor damsel being harassed by Ethan" the Mods will know the game you're playing.

In the main time, we can play. I have a degree in troll behavior, with a minor in the women who are attracted to them.

Your move. I suggest you wait till at least the 3 exchanges before you scream "harassment" to make it believable. But it's your call.
