Man I'd spend a long time talking to Satan but I think my main question would be, "What's with that God guy? What a total dick right? Burning people forever for the simplest of sins, getting his own son brutally killed for no damn reason when all he had to do was forgive people on his own. What's his problem? What crawled up his celestial ass?"
No. To my knowledge all versions of Christianity that still believe in Hell believe that it's God who sends people there. In the Bible it says God created Hell to punish the Devil and the angels who rebelled but in the end he tosses a whole bunch of humans in for good measure. Revelation 21:8 says unbelievers, magicians, cowards and a whole host of other undesirables are to be burned alive in a "Lake of Fire" for all eternity. So Satan isn't burning people he's being burned with them according to some interpretations. Like I said though to my knowledge all the interpretations that include Hell also have God as the final judge who decides who deserves to get burned and who gets into Heaven.
Well, actually there are several different interpretations of heaven and hell. The one I was always told was that the devil created hell and began to search for followers shortly after. I think it was a bit more than punishment for rebellion. ‘Cause hey, he's the devil, with almost as much power as God right? (he'd have to be that strong. Otherwise there wouldn't be an ongoing 'epic battle' lasting for centuries.) If he was unhappy with the situation, I'm pretty sure he could do something about it. lol But the basic problem IS interpretation. I personally think that there is no limit to the capacity of heaven and I like to believe that that God, who is said to forgive even the nastiest of sins, will give second chances. Be it a near death experience or even just strong hints in one’s life. I would hope that if he can forgive serial killers who confessed only once on their deathbeds, then he can forgive me for missing church last Sunday when I had a hangover. lol
Yeah, there are a lot of interpretations and it comes from the Bible being pretty vague about Hell and the Lake of Fire (it doesn't even mention whether those are two different things).
I'm not a Christian anymore but back when I was I couldn't fathom the idea of why a loving God would burn people forever for mere disbelief. It's like a Believe or burn system or in some interpretations it works more like OBEY or Burn.
you must be kidding. Satan has almost as much power as God?... You do realize that satan is an archangel which btw is a creation of GOD! Did you know that in spiritual christian hierarchy, the archangels and angels are in the bottom? There are other spirits stronger.... so its not that God cant crush Satan any moment. Think about it. Its like God killing every human that make sins (sin= opposing His will)... Does this happen? Duhhh!!! We all know the answer.
well if it exist...suppose it exist i would ask why the hell he and god are playing with humans...if needed we humans can great better games for both of them...i can understand both have nothing to do other than playing with humans but enough is enough...
I would ask for the recipe for cold fusion. Hell doesn't consumes humans but just burns them eternally. This eternal fire is a self sustaining energy source which could solve our dependence on fossil fuel.
Also, I would ask if televangelists got on their knees or bent over for him.
I would ask him nothing. Nada. Zip. Because...been there, done that. I rather liked his answer at first. But then all hell broke loose and I didn't like it at all. This is serious business, people. But carry on if you must. I'm not against him being the butt of a joke or two!
Nope. Never been to hell. Ain't gonna even go there. And yes I've seen people who say they've been there. I think it's possible they had a vision of hell, yes, but not literally gone there. Sympathy for him would take me there. I've read your hub. And you wouldn't like my assessment of the views expressed in it, so I said nothing. 'nuf said on that.
Talking to him? Been there, done that, in effect. You can too if you wish. But beware. He's not a metaphor like you think. Again, be careful what you wish for. And since you don't even claim to have the armor of God, you'll be an easy target for him. Well, according to the Bible, you already are under his thumb, since non-believers are required to choose one or the other; not making a choice equals to the same as making a choice...... I don't let him ask me any questions either. He's full of subtlety as the Bible exposes. The Bibles says resist him and he will flee from you. Why do you have such curiosity about him that you'd want to talk to him? And "visit" him? oh dear; LOL....But serious stuff indeed. I think he gives out one-way tickets. Is that what you want?
More threats to convert me to your one and only, just like many of the other Religions do too, Not a sign of an all loving God and who allows this greatest cause of War to continue. I feel safe with most of the people on earth who are not even aware of Yahweh or Jealous or whatever his name is God.
Beside your God said -one will be judged by ones fruits and I don't think he meant gays or by the brain washer’s . I get enough fruits and nuts for Christmas.
Are you sure you haven't been talkin' with Satan after all?? Because your post says a lot of the same kindsa stuff he says.....like, ya know, accusing God of being unloving. Similar to what another poster around here says so much too, about God causing wars and all ...... I mean, gee, it's become like a broken record. Are ya sure your mind isn't brainwashed with that broken record? The Bible calls Satan the "accuser of the brethren".......how ironic.
This is scary talk Brenda. I am always concerned for those who feel they have the capacity to see a direct link from what a person has written in disagreement to your belief in a satan. I thought it was a joke at first, but you are serious aren't you?
I think of Satan as a metaphor for your own realization of problems, in which enlighten your awareness. I never go looking for tragedies, yet when it comes, I deal with it gracefully, and it takes me to a higher energy level. Why blame on Satan or be torture for eternity over sin rather than adjusting that mistakes
I agree. I think it's an analogy for the ego. Not say that negative energies don't exist. To conquer yourself would be as though you were to conquer many worlds. If I had to walk in fear of God and hell and life, all of my life, it would be a hell unto it's own. I choose to love and appreciate this life regardless of my perceived flaws. Not as a beginning of eternity but as an experience in eternity. After all eternity is my heaven. We are co creators here. What are we creating? It's an incredible opportunity to experience life here. I have a saying, Iv'e been to heaven and iv'e been through hell and they have both been powerful teachers.
I would ask if he really bought souls and try to cut a deal for a night out with Eva Mendes. I might also ask for an unsecure credit limit at the Palms, and I'd like to know who the heck really shot JFK and whats going on in area 51.
Personally I think the devil is misunderstood, so maybe I would ask if I could write his official biography. Hopefully I won't have to donate the proceeds and he/she/it will throw in Eternal life ON EARTH.
Imagine living beyond the extinction of all other members of the human race.
Well by arguing your point with him you are doing the same thing by not showing love towards him, understand full well why people are choosing their positions because we don't live out the word in our conversations with them, and try to force them to think what we personally believe. Through our actions we speak louder than words. Some times it's just best to keep our own opinions to ourselves what we believe because when we think we know who God is and think we have arrived, we usually haven't arrived in our full understanding of who he is! So when we judge another person, we only ask them to judge us back!
Oh really? I suppose you'd call it "love" for him if I told him it's okey-dokey okay to yearn to talk to Satan? Whatever! But hey, thanks sooooo much for inserting your little insults into a conversation where the other poster asked me to elaborate on things. And if you think people can't know who God is, think again. Because He reveals enough of who and what He is in the Bible for anyone who yearns to know what He wants us to know. No, no one on earth has "arrived" at full understanding of God, but those of us who know the Lord can indeed judge right from wrong, and Satan is wrong all over the Bible. I've only "judged" what Castlepaloma says in his own words in this thread and in his hub----that he wants to "save Satan" and yet thinks he is only a "metaphor". You said "asks to judge us back" like I'm asking for it or something! Whatever! If you or he or anyone else wants to "judge" me, go right ahead. Because you'd have to judge me by the word of God which says I'm a forgiven child of God who Loves Him who gave His life for me. So your judgement of me would make not one whit of difference to me! Nor to God. But try it if you like.
Been there done that thing called Christianity, it only proves my point it is an over ego world. How anyone judge a whole soul that made up of millions of parts. Yet Christians are the champion at judging even to the point of blowing up the world in 2012. I feel happy co creating with God and enjoy the spiritual unknown as in hope and wonder.
Insults do not bother me, if it's true, I'm learning something. If I ever see that seven headed dragon Satan, I'll believe you,
Util then, be honesty and do not harm for God is all loving and everyone is God.
Umm. No. According to the Bible, God is not "all-loving" in the sense that you seem to imply. God is Judge also. God is Love, yes, the Bible says that. So much so that Jesus the Christ died so you'd have the opportunity along with everyone else to repent and be born-again. But He is Almighty; the One who has the power to "destroy both soul and body in hell." (Matthew 10: 28). He is the Jealous God who offers everyone the choice to Love Him too. Or not, as they choose. But indeed I don't understand why everyone doesn't Love Him! He is easy to Love!
...I'm replying to your post mainly because of your last three words. Ahem.. You can go on believing you're God if you wish! LOL But don't ever lump me in that erroneous belief! (You said "everyone"). Because I am NOT God. And if I thought for one second that YOU are God, I'd be finding you and kissing your feet. So, indeed, you can rest assured I'm not gonna be doing that!
Kissing one’s feet would have fewer germs than kissing someone on the mouth, not a bad idea. That could make many people feel more important and respected rather kissing a ghost, paying money and wishing.
Yahweh requires extreme conditional love in order for a few to get to heaven wail the rest of us go to hell, a very poor sign of an all loving God.
I love you and everyone the same (as god), everyone on earth is my Family,(as god) like an old wise tree in which is not foolish enough to fight with it's own branches.
Well. First I will suppose that he is as claimed...In this case I would ask him this question...Since you are an angel and lacked freewill as the humans do...How did you manage to defy god and end up in the current state you are in? Did god tell you how and what to do? Or do angels in fact have freewill as well? And if God didn't allow this and angel in fact don't have freewill, then how did it all happen?
Now this would be one hell of a conversation. Literally. First, before any questions, I would tell Lucifer that I admire his courage. I mean, the guy stood up to GOD for god's sake. Ha! I don't pretend to know the whole story, but that has got to take some balls. I would ask him how he did it. Why he did it. Was it worth it? An eternity of hell? This is a little difficult to think about, I admit. I don't exactly believe in the guy, just putting that out there. I think me and Satan could talk about a lot. I would ask him for advice on certain aspects of my life, and then do the opposite. Or not...depending...hehe.
