    @ Lolita, I totally agree with your whole comment. The devil uses those individuals most that say he doesn't exist. The rapper Jay-Z said exactly that in an interview.

    It's all "between the ears," isn't it? SATAN works the "mind" & is why it's IMPERATIVE that we "STUDY" (II Tim 2:15) GOD'S WORD (Eph 6:10-18) to be able to "STAND THE "WILES" OF THE DEVIL"!!!

    Grace, my friend, "See no evil, hear no evil" got translated into "See no truth, hear no truth." What's the use, really? Do you think that anybody here registered the meaning of what you said?

    Interesting concept that man is stupid. Or maybe you just mean stupidness in us. Same thing. The devil is a belief system construct. It is healthy. My son goes to church with me every Sunday, he has never asked about the devil. I am rational.

    SD,as usual,insightful(&boils down to what I said,we,our sinful nature,are our own worst enemies).Moral relativity is probably at the top of the list,the idea that everyone has their own truth open's the door wide for the devil to come in.

    Yes! "Half-Truths" or "twisted" doctrine as I call it!

    Josh 24:15 "choose!" WE have the authority to do as we pls now! He has left instructions (WORD) & allows us to do either good or evil w/o interfering! He will "eliminate" as in WORD!

    Why so many "rooted & grounded" in their "twisted" beliefs!

    Clearly you know nothing of Christianity. Most informed Christians know that the creation story is mostly symbolic and a poetical way of telling the story. Also, are you saying the devil is good?
