If "Faith Alone" saves, can Satan be saved?

    When Jesus in John 3:16 says "whoever believes in Him shall not perish," notice that he didn't say "whoever believes ONLY...shall not perish."

    Since 8 years old, I learn love makes good sense and love concurs all. Fear is simply, it’s just the unknown, Satan is just the unknown. Help me understand why people must fear an all loving God and be even more fearful of a Satan. Can't we just love Satan to death like in most beautiful stories rather than threaten or act on war.

      lol well technically satan is second oldest entity after god...so satan already has eternal life..since it exist before humans and most likely would continue to exist...so it is good to be bad smile

        May West ,mmm, I'm good when I'm bad.

        People already know what's right and what's wrong, why fear something you have control over in the first place?

        If Satan had a peek at extreme happiness and found it better, why wouldn’t he change his mind, and want to be saved.

        Purly working from imagination based on good sense.

        After 6014 years of hell, don;t you think Satan have enough sense to move on to bigger and better things? In addition, set free some 100s billion souls who ever lived on earth, since 144,000 have been seal in heaven

        To take on another 6 billion more soul in a few years is just going to be too much torture, for old satan.

        I'm starting to sound like a madman.

             Not demoted, ..  just one of his job classifications.
           
          The four horsemen were symbolic of hardships that immediately were sent down upon the earth when Jesus arrived in heaven after the crucifixion.
            In this instance "earth" represents Israel and Judea.

If all mankind can and will be saved, then I see no probably with All the spiritual entity can be saved too...Since we are in God image Jesus had to meet and overcome death itself, why not Satan?

          As much as I love the idea of no man left behind, it does not work well with the heaven hell dynamic. So which is it then? Everyone is saved, no hell, no need to worry about folks indulging their heathen hearts with previsions and abominations (I'll have mine fried in garlic butter please). Cause salvation is for all. Or an angry and vengeful God (who will likely spit in my garlic butter sauce) that casts into hell the heathens and perverts who love Satan? Can you see my confusion regarding the story books of religion?


          On a side note, I do believe in the no man left behind sentiment. I also think we are all connected, the universe experiencing itself subjectively through each individual life lived so to speak. If one is lost all are lost hence no lost at all, just different destinations for different learning experiences. In this type of belief system one is challenged to wonder if this transient state we call life is the true existence of our real selves? If not then we are not really harmed as this life is the illusion, the pages on which we do our sums and our suffering/pleasure are attempts to learn, grow. Life is the illusion and death is a cool swim in reality. Does a parent care if their child plays the robber in a game of cops and robbers with other kids? Not really, someone has to do it for the game to work and be fun. The parent here being the Is (aka God).

          Religion can be fun tho, like a game of dungeons and dragons, its just that I find myself playing with people who want to change the rules all the time to suit them, so they can win wink

              I am not really good at being competitive really, I give up way to soon to really get competitive over most things in life. Never got into sports for this reason, don't even like to compete with myself.

              My best guess is when someone is trying to convert me to their way of thinking it's a case of win or loose, converting me would be a win, and also an impossible task. If necessary I will give up (as I said above) simile politely and say thats nice petal, and continue thinking what I think anyway smile

                Never understood the competitive thing. When there is something tangible to obtain like a medal or something I can see why some would. Yet to win someone over to a way of thinking seems pointless because like you we all continue to think what we think anyway. Experience is usually the catalyst for making us change our ways of thinking. I like that you let it be when the need arises.

                  I notice a little bit of competition with Mark there. I can swing to competition mode with Mark and wrestling with him to the ground and still learn some of the best he has to offer, like grounding type things. You can find the best from every group and incorporated into your own world. It just more enjoyment flowing with many people on middle grounds to somewhat the same rainbow’s, a stronger win win for all

      The Hebrew noun Satan means, literally: "The Adversary." From the very conception of his character he was meant to be the opposition to God. Yin and Yang. That is my understanding of it in terms of the literature.

      However, as far as your question is concerned, the Bible does say that Satan could in theory repent:

      Colossians 1:20: "...and by Him to reconcile all things to Himself, by Him, whether things on earth or things in heaven, having made peace through the blood of His cross." (NKJV)

      But it also says that he wont.

      Anyway, on a personal note, I don't think Satan or the God of Abraham actually exist, but I enjoy studying many religions as a hobby.

          Indeed.
          I was merely speaking to his character, not the outcome of his actions. His character is that of "The Adversary," where as his actions have condemned him to eternal torture in hellfire. There is a difference between the two.

          As far as the idea of someone receiving either eternal punishment or reward goes... I think it's disproportionate to the crime/deed.

          Nobody deserves an ETERNITY of punishment for anything they could have done. Nor does anyone deserve an eternal reward, no matter how great the deed.

          Even if you gave Hitler 1 billion years of punishment for every death that he was responsible for it would still be ZERO years towards completing his sentence if you had sentenced him to an eternity of punishment.

          That's what eternity means.

          Also, the Bible refers to God as an "All Just Judge" and an "All Merciful Judge," (the obvious contradiction being that you can not be both ALL just and ALL merciful simultaneously). But if he was truly a just and righteous God then he would not sentence someone disproportionately for the crime they committed.

          From my understanding, Satan wanted to be more powerful than God.  He used to be the most powerful angel, but that wasn't enough for him.  This is why, he was cast out of heaven.  Of course, everyone can be "saved," including Satan, but he did not want to be under God's command anymore; he wanted to be more "superior and powerful" than his own Master.  I'm not trying to convert anyone in my way of thinking-personally, I wouldn't want that, either.  I'm just merely explaining what I've known regarding the subject.  Thank you, in advance, for reading my comment.  Hope it clarifies things!:-)

      The premise is that Satan is ALL bad. Nothing redeemable about him. If that's the case, he can't be "saved." But no one is ALL bad. Humans are a mix bad and good because we have egos and protect ourselves with them. The other premise is that if Satan is human (even human spirit or soul) then he is like us and therefore not all bad.

      The best explanation is that he is a symbol for man's dark side, which is ruled by his ego. He doesn't exist only symbolically. Therefore, every human has to be responsible for his/her actions and behaviors.

      1.    Love is good; keep loving the Creator-God.
      2.    If you love your mother; you will fear disobeying her; as much one loves one; one fear one’s anger.
      3.    Satan always disobeys and cannot obey the Creator-God; so never think of loving Satan; like Jesus always disobey Satan.

        The act of giving, Kris Kringle was once real.

        There is no crime in giving love to anyone or thing. Satan needs love most of all, if it is true that God is all loving, then God will love and all people on the planet including most people who are not christain like yourself along with  most of the people on earth.

        I don’t faith in any of the believers that think the world will end, because none of them will sell me their land cheap, so their talk is cheap too.

        Religious war with atheist or other religions, is a discrimination to all people to make other believe these people are demonic, it much easier to kill them as sub human and blame it all on Satan..

        Death penalty and beating, oh my.
        For all we have in life is what we give away, so what can be better than giving love to the ones who need it most?

      Castle,

      ha-satan is the human mind --consciousness-- that must be reset according to the original settings (i.e. Adam during the Seventh of Days). So this refers to every human.

      They must liberate their thinking for life lead by the spirit, not the mind -- ha-satan. The human mind is always prowling around looking for something or someone to devour.

      Can the mind of man be saved? Yes, by faith --which is beyond human thinking-- and is completely controlled by the spirit.
      [ therein ends religion, science, a theist and atheist, self-ism and humanism].

      So long as we are thinking about having salvation, wanting salvation, dismissing salvation, we have no faith and are being pulled every which way by ha-satan.

      As the saying goes: whoever is led into captivity, into captivity they will go...

          I'm working hard to understand Satan and his bad relationship with God and I'm a sucker for bringing relationships back together again.

          I read some where, hell is pit where they burned the bodies of criminals, is that true?

                In Hebrew, the word for hell means grave/tomb
                Satan means adversary.

        Brenda, Brenda, Brenda, after all this time, I thought you would have seen "the light". The devil/satan = adversary. That's all.

        But, you're correct, ha-satan is the father of lies and mans mind has lied to him from the moment he indulged it. Man pities his ha-satan, satisfies it until the power of it is removed by either death or regeneration. Yet, Y`shua explained, showed, proved through all his examples, the mind is useless and the "idea" of F/faith useless, because that F/faith comes from the mind.

        No difference between those accepting and those rejecting --the difference is in the fruit of the faithful/faith filled, who don't walk according to their minds correctness --with or without knowledge-- but in the fullness of the spirit. Keyword: fullness not sort of, kind of, half@$$ed, fullness most get from churchianity...

              Why can't people be responsibility for own actions and free will. It was not Satan that possess someone to make the movie, "The Exorcist". He did not make me buy a family size pop corn box and 64 oz.coke and throw it all down the toilet, begging for Jesus.

              That's my fault, not Satan, I could have stop the whole thing. The true church is in our own hearts, by praying for Satan is the ultimate gift of love, it is the first origins of good intention, since the talking serpent. God is all loving, who Believes in Him shall not perish," believe only"…

              Well, Satan believes in God.

      Salvation isn't extended to angels, it's given to mankind only, if mankind accepts it.  Satan is a fallen angel, but an angel nonetheless, therefore salvation does not apply to him.

      God sent Jesus to die for mankind.

      And as far as loving satan is concerned, you can love him if you want to, but he doesn't love you regardless if you love him or not.  Actually, he hates you, me and all mankind ,and seeks to destroy us all.

Satan is part of nature, the Universe is part of nature, so love all, or separate things and hate many creatures and things for the rest of our life, I perfer to love all creasures great and small.

        God must of had a hell of a sense of humor,God made a jelly fish. He took away their brains and back bone and force to live immortaltly for 650 million years , just maybe the jellyfish is content.

        God’s made Satan into a snake, than a dragon and then a man  when he made Satan. God would want us to choose love, others prefer hate, Satan needs loved most of all and loved to death, as love concurs all.

          If you were standing next to a rattlesnake that was about to bite you, would you stand there petting it and loving on it or would you flee?  Are you a meateater because if so even if you didn't slaugther the animals you eat, you're eating them knowing that someone else did.  How about this, Have you ever caught fish?  If so, why wouldn't you love these fish, instead of catching, killing and eating them?

          Jesus fed 5000 with loaves of bread and fish, does this mean thatJesus hated the fish because he used them to feed people?  Sure, I love God's creation too, but God gave manikind authority over the animal kingdom for our food, clothing.  He doesn't intend that we we abuse.  He wants us to take care of them( but we are not try and get close to all animals or have them as pets).

          I say love all God's creation, except the devil.

            I would rather face all the Deadliest snake in the entire world than to confront your friendly furry and fun lion that you ID yourself with.

            Funny how many people major in minor things? The rattle snake is such a wimp, he is so out in the open, hissing and rattling for help or to step off.

            Worldwide on the List of causes of death by rate of the rattle snakes is about 20 per year. Compare that to suicides at 60 million a year and then there are 14 other greater causes of death than suicide.

            Christians have a greater fear of death in hell than all the causes of death on earth. Beside God promoted Satan from a snake to a red man with two horns because he loves him. I don’t what Native American think about the red man, white man concept, for the one’s who speck in fork tongue.

    Death comes as a direct result of sin.
    Satan sinned, his death is coming, (and in a sense, it already is in effect).
    Jesus died for the sins of man(kind), not satan. So, he carries his own punishment.
    God does not send to hell, He fullfils yours/my choices.

      Well, that is very simple.

      However, how is it you know you've made the correct choice?
      Also, some of what you're saying isn't Biblical (or at least isn't entirely so). What you're saying is an interpretation of certain passages that fit with your ideal version of God and salvation, heaven and hell.

      Also, when there is no evidence to support the Biblical claims of salvation, the human soul, life after death, etc. how can I be expected to believe in it? You say it's easy, but it is anything but. It is easy for you because you accept it on faith and without question. I simply cannot do that.

      There are many religions and many opposing ideologies to yours, how do i know that yours is correct and theirs is not? How can you prove to me that you are right? Can you even prove it to yourself? Simply feeling something is true doesn't make it true.

        Yes it's simple, because the Gospel is for EVERYONE. You don't need a Phd to receive understanding. You are correct in saying it is accepted by faith.
        "For by grace you have been saved through faith; and that not of yourselves, it is the gift of God; 9not as a result of works, so that no one may boast" Ephesians 2;8
        But, I know WHY I believe. So, it's not unquestioningly!!!
        Secondly, it definitely IS subjective, because God Himself confirms (within you) the truth. I for one was not raised in the faith I now have. I searched among those "other ideologies".

        God has a hell of sense of humor when he took Satan arms and legs away and make him a belly crawling taking snake, Then God made Satan evolved into a seven headed flying red dragon beyond our wildest fantasies. Today, some say Satan is red man with two horns, and a tail and is fortify in our culture. God keep the evolution of Satan going, so he must love the beast. Once we all pray and give our love to Satan, he can turn into a handsome prince. Then we can see the light, darkness becomes the light. Save Satan.

              I had an annoying discussion about this. In word myth the pattern of finding light in darkness is the spirit if this thread. It is symbolic. Once you see can love the beast, he will be transformed into a handsome prince.  Once you see that the adversary is here as a platform for you to see that light, then that darkness will become light.

    Castlepaloma, Satan and his evil angels cannot be saved, neither do they want to be saved. Jesus Christ died to redeem mankind not Satan and his evil angels. Satan and his evil angels are geared up to hinder God's righteousness and redemption plan for mankind. If you love God you cannot love Satan. God is Good and Satan is the epitomy of evil. If God didn't protect you, Satan would kill you. Satan's purpose is to Kill, steal, and destroy. Love God and leave Satan alone. To have fear for God is a reverential fear (respect, honor, and praise). To have fear for Satan is to leave him alone, and stay close to God.

      The premise is that Satan is ALL bad.
      Nothing redeemable about him. If that's the case, he can't be "saved." But no one is ALL bad. Humans are a mix bad and good because we have egos and protect ourselves with them. The other premise is that if Satan is human (even human spirit or soul) then he is like us and therefore not all bad.

    And I admit, the way the Churches and Religonists have twisted God and Satan to fit their nice little worlds. To Take it all in by Faith is very difficult at best.

      John 3:16 states that "For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten son, that whosoever believeth in Him, shall not perish but have eternal life." -

      Well, Satan believes in God

      Believes in Him shall not perish," believe only"-

      If Hitler with all his heart repents to Jesus and change his ways, he too could be saved, why not Satan?

      Yes, belief in Christ is absolutely necessary to be saved, and that 's Jesus' emphasis in John 3:16. But then true faith continues to obey Christ as Lord, and that's James' emphasis in James 2:14-26. The passages don't contradict. They both teach important facts about salvation.

      James 2:19-20
      "You believe that there is one God. You do well. Even the demons believe -- and tremble."

      Satan can change his ways, he is more than half there, by believeing in God, maybe not your idea God

          I'm try my best guesses and using everything I know to help every living creature on earth or in spirit by love, for God is LOVE, and all nature require love and that's all I am giving with prayer. Not all rules are carved in stone, according to 2000 version of the bible that all claim to know.

          If Hitler could have repented will all his heart he could have a shot at going to Heaven. Fear is only the unknown, when everyone prays Satan has a shot too.

          The most incomprehensible thing about the Universe is that it is comprehensible. Einstein said that. Einstein, like me, both believe in God, maybe not the same way you do. We think Satan could be gay and believes in God too, gay can be fixed, they say. But, most of the world knows Hitler was a Christian and tried to stump out atheists and gays.

        About 8/10 of people in the world are religious and many of them are over obedience. They would rather fight than to switch to love.  I think God wants you to lead with your heart and shorting follow by your mind. I prefer ethics rather than morals For its in your heart where the church of God is. Many false leaders have already royally screwed with the many words in the one bible .

        Today the conscious level is much higher, if someone comes along like Hitler again, the people will love him to death, because most people do not want war of any kind.

          Fight for what though? Is it to be right? Is it to appear all powerful and knowing? Is it for God? If in their belief (those who are fight) are fighting on behalf of God. Since God is understood by mainstream believers that God is all powerful and knowing. Wouldn't that be an insult to Gods all powerful-ness and Knowing-ness?

          History Note

          We wonder where did Satan the evil force come from, as he was separated from God, who gave the orders to do that? Satan is foreign to Jews, Torah first expressed a serpent does good as well as bad acts, (seems like me), but where did Satan first appear in a books? It’s said that a lawgiver and philosopher Piso thought it was a great idea to begin a new religion, Christianity that gives new moral laws to the Roman Empire. By being the puppeteer of Satan it was a genius in design to motivate people for fear that works stronger than love in order to control. We all know all this is so foolish because god gave us everything and only wants us to worship him, God would allows us to pray for Satan to allow him to make better of himself.

So an atheist can not prove he is 100% absolute from only drawing knowledge from the 1% knowledge just here on earth.

                    Few people have the imagination for reality and logic and reason can die off quickly. Your knowledge has limits but your imagination dose not. Reason respects differences, and imagination has a perceptible likeness of things. It’s an act not of reason but an intuition, Imagination is the eye of the soul and the voice of the daring. If there is anything Godlike about God it is that.

This being a basic truth direct from Scripture, we must conclude that ALL that has existence must have come into being by YHWH (Yahweh).

                  Satan had his shot at eternal life and blew it. He tried to set himself higher than God. For this reason, he and 1/3 of the angels were cast out of heaven.

                  Satan cannot be saved and scripture tells us this. Satan's ultimate end is
                  hell. Satan's goal is take as many of us with him as possible.

                  We have to base our judgments on what the bible says. Without sounding like a hate-monger or worse, I will just say the bible speaks for itself.

                  Christianity isn't just another religion. It is a lifestyle based on Salvation
                  through Jesus Christ and none other. Believing that Christ gave his life
                  for humankind. Paid our eternal debt so we don't have to.

        In the manifest as we know it, nothing appears to be fixed as it seems to be always in a state of constant change. Even thoughts, ideas, beliefs etc are subject to this constant change.

        So today's realities can be yesterdays illusion.

            śāṭān or Satan is a Hebrew word meaning Adversary, the opposer
            and was never a true being. Show me in scripture where it says he was. You have to look at the language it originated from to know the meaning.
            In Jewish thought Satan is one of the things we struggle against every day, which is the "evil inclination. It's not a force or a being, but rather is a human's innate capacity for doing evil in the world. Using the term satan to describe this impulse is not very common though.

            According to Ariela Pelaia: "Satan appears as a proper character only once in the Hebrew Bible. In the Book of Job he is depicted as an angel who mocks the piety of a righteous man named Job. He tells God that the only reason Job is so religious is because God has given him a life filled with blessings. "But lay Your hand upon all that he has, and he will curse You to Your face" (Job 1:11). God accepts Satan’s wager and allows Satan to rain all manner of misfortune upon Job: his sons and daughters die, he loses his fortune, he is afflicted with painful boils. Yet even though people tell Job to curse God, he refuses. Throughout the book Job demands that God tell him why all of things horrible things are happening to him but God does not answer until chapter 38. "Where were you when I established the world?" God asks Job, "Tell me, if you know so much" (Job 38:3-4). Job is humbled and admits that he has spoken of things he does not understand.

            The Book of Job grapples with the difficult question of why God allows evil in the world. It is the only book in the Hebrew Bible that mentions "satan" as a sentient being. The idea of satan has a being with dominion over a metaphysical realm never caught on in Judaism. Judaism is so strictly monotheistic that the rabbis resisted the temptation to characterize anyone other than God with authority. Rather, God is the Creator of both good and evil and it is up to mankind to choose which path they will follow.

              What is actually written is that 144,000 were redeemed from among mankind. Which implies that they didn't suffer death.

                These being  FIRST  fruits unto the Lord.
              AND then there are a number which no man can count standing before the throne.

                I believe that these are representative of the finalization of the Old Covenant.
                 It seems reasonable to me that the terms and conditions of the first contract/covenant would be fulfilled before a second can be entered into ??

                If this is true, that great multitude seen after the sixth seal is opened does not represent the first resurrection described in Rev. 20.
                If you notice; they are described totally differently.

                Absolutely correct.


                Hebrew Numbers are not literal numeric but based on characters/letters). In order to decipher 144,000, you need to set the letter order and determine what that order stands for. (If it stands for something other than what the passage says.) According to the passage a collective group from each tribe --under the Old Covenant-- was reserved for ???

                144(x 1000) or  1000 * 100 + 40 + 4

                example:

                today is 4th (day) of Tevet, 5771
                5(x1000) 700 + 70 + 1

                  The Hebrews do not share your numbering system (calculations)

                  The real number to decode would be 100, 40, 4 and 12...Tell me, what does the 12 represent.

                    I guess that it was just an assumption on my part that when Israel ceased to be a Nation after the 133-135 revolt. It has been my impression that every Hebrew that could be found throughout all of Israel were scattered across the rest of the Roman Empire.
                    Since there wasn't a Nation of Israel for approx 1800 years  that this promise to Abraham had been concluded.

    I always love participating in discussions like this, where the topic of salvation is discussed. 

    Salvation means many things to many people.  I am a Mormon, a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.  Our understanding of the most fundamental form of salvation (or being "saved") is the overcoming of death (the separation of our spirits from our bodies that ends our mortal life) through resurrection (the rejoining of the spirit and the body in a perfect condition).  Resurrection is made possible because of Jesus Christ's resurrection, and it is a universal gift from the Savior to every person who has ever lived, good or evil.

    After the resurrection, mankind is ultimately assigned to a degree of glory.  This assignment to a kingdom of glory is also considered a type of salvation.  In order to live with God and Jesus Christ, a person must be forgiven of sins.  He/she must be perfect.  Overcoming sin requires works in addition to faith.  This is taught plainly in the Bible.  Members of the LDS Church are grateful to also have modern-day prophets to give us the details that clarify the Biblical teachings.

    To answer the question directly, Satan is a spirit personage who cannot be saved either through the resurrection or by obtaining exaltation.

      What if, the real answer is love and kindness to God rather than Religion or Politics. Wonder if an all loving God wants us to be in the same image and be all loving by giving love to everyone and to ones who need it most, like Satan.

      We know 2000 version of the Bible disagrees with each other. Why not try love and kindness to all kinds and types of people and creasures of the Universe rather than hate or blame Satan to the end of time. The History of Mankind has shown us it’s always has been love, kindness and reason that changes things, not so much the politics of any one group.

      Where did Satan first appear in a book?" It's said that a lawgiver and philosopher Piso thought it was a good idea to begin a new religion,” Christianity" that gives new moral laws to the Roman Empire. By being a puppeteer of Satan it was genius in design to motivate people by fear rather than love, in order to control the people.

      We need a new way of thinking and kindness.

Then, every living being on Earth must accept Jesus Christ as the Son of God and as their personal savior. The odds are against it, but this dictate is possible to accomplish.

      Most people in Religion believe in Heaven and Hell and some form of Devil or Satan. Christians believe Muslim will go straight to Hell and vice versa. Most people on earth are going to hell according to Religions. Major Religions believe that most of us whom are either non religious or belong to another faith are wrong in life.

      When I studies history and people behaviors today, most people I meet say they spiritual rather than Religion. In Canada a hundred years ago 98% were Christian today 50% are, and most of them are not devoted and salvation shows you must be a devoted Christian to get to heaven.

      Even this week maybe two out of the top ten posted on the Religion and Philosophy forum are devoted Christians and there is no Muslims. Muslim go to heaven on the basis of whether or not they followed the faith. Only 3% of Christian goes to church regularly.

      Yes folks, Religions are shrinking and Satan is becoming tame

      Lets bow our heads and pray some more and save Satan and pray for less Hell on earth.

      It has been said that Satan is evil incluing the attributes of Lust, greed, jealousy, anger, hate etc. It has been said that God is Good including the attributes of love, humility, compassion, forgiveness etc.

      All these attributes of God and Satan flow through the one thing and that is the mind of man.

      So are they of the mind or are they from a source that springs from the same place? Perhaps two different sources if one believes that Satan and God are separate.

      What flows through the mind of man then is man's choice to act or not to act no matter what source they believe it comes from.

      If some believe they are beings then that is another story altogether. If one subscribes to this belief, perhaps this is why these beings have been given so much power to affect ones life. A life that is lived through the mind solely and completely.

        Christianity origin came from Hinduism and there form of Satan does not recognize any central evil force or entity such as the Devil opposing God. Hinduism does recognize that different beings entities can perform evil acts, under the temporary cause of worldly sufferings.

        The concept is the hellish parts of the Ultimate Delusion where there are no good or evil but simply different levels of realization. When one defeat evil when evil reaches its greatest strength, allow us higher energy and empowerment.

        The concept of  karma also explain evil to a degree, rather than the influence of a devil.

    Hmmm. You ask if Satan can be saved if he had faith.. well the Bible says faith without works is dead..
    Satan has bad fruits, bad works, he is love-less, he accuses us day and night to God trying get God not to love us so he can kill us and take our soul.
    WON'T HAPPEN UNLESS YOU REFUSE JESUS ALL THE WAY TO YOUR DEATH-BED.
    The Devil/ Satan is out to steal kill and destroy us all so no Satan can't be saved. He doesn't want saved he wants you to go with him to hell when he's cast there..misery loves company!

    Jesus died to save us from satan deceiving us and taking our soul not to save Satan..satan isn't a human being even though he can get us to act like him by his influence at times and some a whole lot more than others. The biggest lies he has ever fed the world is that he doesn't exist or God or Jesus. A trap to trick us all- if we will just believe him.
    Can't fight something that you don't believe is their,also you don't have to believe in satan for him to ruin your life. You can't be saved by the one and only God without belief either.. either way without Jesus whatever your reason to not believe is from satan. But with God you must believe in Jesus as your Savior!
    Wow satan's laughing now if you still don't believe in him.

        As to your real question, Satan is exempt from salvation because, as mentioned in the following, he has already been lost and thus doomed to destruction. His "number is already up". Jesus is having to protect the rest of his flock from the same fate.
        "While I was with them, I protected them and kept them safe by that name you gave me. None has been lost except the one doomed to destruction so that Scripture would be fulfilled." John 17:12

Job happened to be one of those Satan decided to test with God's permission.

    Satan help with the downfall of man by telling Eve it's ok to eat from the tree of knowledge.  I can't find where Satan was ever a friend to mankind.  Once again if I understand scripture once man was created he had those in Heaven to bow down before his creation and Satan objected to this act stating "We were created first"

    People can worship whom they like but this guy is headed for a place most people don't won't to go to.

    Yes I know he was called Lucifer but he's still the same old devil.

        I will acutely disagree.
        satan is every man, do a degree.
        satan is the rebellious human mind.
        It is the mind that tests and proves itself inadequate.
        It controls the body and even if it could the spirit in man, until one gives out --meaning the body or spirit. At which point the mind seizes to exist. Poor satan, deceived itself, for self and self glory, only to be destroyed by itself. Irony never has a better friend than that! lol

        As the two elements of The Ism (for or against) so brilliantly, continuously points out: the constant provision of sensation (common senses) keeps the mind in power.

        Creator did not design entities to test humans.
        Humans designed entities and idols of the mind to test Creator.

        Faith is abject thought and result of that thought, its conclusion or sensation. Faith requires complete loosing of the mind from its power, freeing the body and spirit --together as a whole unit. The body then acts upon the spirit and salvation (from sin/death) comes. The mind returns to its place as the servant to them both. A transmitter of intangible to tangible.

        All those crowing (for or against) Y`shua and his work, never stop to understand its purpose nor exemplification. Too many Peter's and Paul's --and in some cases Mary's-- running about.

        The first get out of the boat, only to drown in their own fears (provided sensation of the mind). The second consumed by the thought of power (yet another provision) only to become slaves to doctrine, while the Mary's weep and are drawn like moths to a flame, the light of the moon, prisms of light reflecting off invisible particles of water vapor or electromagnetic computer images, swooning at the sensation and calling it gifts of the gods...

        But, there is hope (because this is the purpose of hopes existence): Should man put faith into action, he can be saved. Because as the Ism again points out: faith without works is death for certain. Any man who desires Life --that gift abundant-- will have it to the measure of faith given him --so long as he exercises that faith in all its fullness. Else, he will join the others before and certainly after, who prefer to indulge their mind and its provisions.

        James.

                    How does Satan in your opinion achieve his objectives that you list? How does Satan steal, kill and destroy?

    The verses in scripture concerning Satan being thrown into a lake of fire were actually only a discription of a vision.

      Visions can be seen very similat to dreams.

      If I had dreamed a dream concerning someone who troubled me greatly being thrown into a lake of fire;  I wouldn't interpret my dream as if that person is literally being thrown into a real lake of fire.

      I would interpret my dream to simply mean that I will never ,ever have to deal with that person again.
      He is not in my reality any more.

      Sometimes I think that people take the wrong parts of visions too literally.
      And when something should be taken literally, it isn't.

    Gee people, Read the Bible, I mean Read it.  Satan knows God exists and belief alone does not cut it.  Does Anyone ever really read the Bible?

        I think atheist read it more, maybe because from being verbally attacked from all sides and from the other 2000 disagreeable versions of the Bible.

          I agree. However, "Satan knows God exists" does not appear to be an atheist statement. That is why I asked.

              That would be true considering 99% is still unknown about our existence.

                On what do you base your figure of %99? Also, what does "...is still unknown about our existance. " mean?

                  Think about an apple, the peel represent about 1% of the mass of the apple.
                  Think about the earth surface crust 6 km. deep, like the apple peel.
                  Think about how much knowledge humans know about the surface of the earth.
                  Then think of what we know about the fiery 99% mass underneath that 6 km, crust surface of earth.

                  Imagine how much human know, when there are more stars in the Universe than every grain of sand on earth. Human knowledge being 1% estimate of the whole of the Universe is being very kind.

      Would'nt faith and many change to good deeds work for Satan?

    the soul that once was satan has gone through the second death...destruction of that soul. It was reconsecrated to the original form of universal energy, to begin again as a new soul one day. the many followers of satan still perpetuate learned deeds and they can be saved by their total surrender to the will of the universal order...who knows how many  more lifetimes that would take to balance their karma.  smile

      We mainly know how to balance our Karma, like how we know what is right and wrong.

      Many do not feel important enough unless we do something extreme, and then learn from the addiction or abuse, then change. I don't get on or  enjoy that kind of roller coaster ride.

    My answere to the question is there is no such a being as satan. No sin against God and absolutely no such a thing as hell hence there is nothing to be saved from!  There is God holy angels and good people. There is only some trivial misunderstanding here on earth otherwise we are already in heaven!

    Just because we are mystified concerning a thing does not make the thing a mystery. ? does it ?

      Just because  "I"  am confused concerning the subject matter;
    doesn't necessary mean that the subject matter is confusing, except on a personal (singular) prospective.

    Satan can't be saved because God is a jealous God and stuff like that.

    So it went down like this. G and S were at a party celebrating the creation of humans and G saw S's moves on the dance floor.

    S was too good a dancer and G tried to compete but he fell on his butt and the hottest looking angel laughed at G so he got really upset with S and kicked him out of the party.

    Now that is unforgivable.
    S should have known that you don't dress better than the bride at the wedding, especially when that bride is your boss.
