Satan is a believer....does that make Him saved?
So how is it that one can only believe and be saved?If all we have to do is believe and be saved,then Satan will be saved as well.Is it not that we should go beyond believing in order to feel the effects of that belief?Satan believes...but He will no follow.If we believe...and do not follow..then we are in the same boat as Satan and His Angels.We would be considered lost souls as they are. Do you agree?
Satan only believes in the existence of God. He doesnt believe in the redemptive power of God. At least he certainly doesnt act as if he does.
He will not change, and has already been sentenced.
Romans 10:9-10 says, "If you confess with your mouth, 'Jesus is Lord,' and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved." I suspect Satan has never and cannot make Jesus Lord of his life. Besides, Satan was an angel, and started his existence in the presence of God. He made his choice ages and ages ago.
Certainly Stan ( unseen) is a believer and he knows he is a special creation of God. And he absolutely fear God and his might. In fact he was inhabited in the heavens until his arrogance reject the most sophisticated creation of God the "MAN" when God orders to to recognize his special creation. Satan was expelled from the heavens and will roam the universe till the judgment day. God knows only what is his ultimate punishment for disobeying Him. Humans and the jinns (Satan) has free will, either to obey or disobey God, therefore the judgment of their tests exist, obedient creatures get reward and disobedient deserves punishment. Same like a serial killer or a rapist who kills your child, if the killer escape criminal charges of this world, he will certainly pay the price in hereafter.
Conclusion : God is not like His creations and He is uncreated. He has his limits too. He can only do Godly-things not what humans comprehend.
Since Jinn is a creation for certain purpose with free will they will be too accounted for their deeds and Satan will not be saved due to his actions, but Satan is only the evil type of the jinns. Satan is not an angel. Angels have no free will and are created from light where Satan is created from scorching fire.
Speaking entirely from a faith based perspective:
I believe on Judgement Day you will only have two choices: to serve Satan or to serve the Lord of Hosts through Jesus Christ. Satan may be a believer, but that does not necessarily make him saved. To be saved you have to follow the teachings of Jesus Christ; it is called applied faith. Everyone has faith, whether it is in Christianity, Judaism, science, love, friendship, their country, the human race itself, etcetera- but without application, faith means nothing. Satan's desire, from what I presently understand, is to undermine and acquisition the authority of the Lord and become the king over mankind and to establish his throne in heaven. To do so, he would have to be a cunning, wicked and clever individual. I wont get into the details of how he will attempt to win over the minds of those without faith in the Lord nor those who claim to be in service to the Lord; but if you place your faith in the Lord of Hosts he will give you the signs you need and he will guide you onto the path of salvation.
Lastly, the Lord knows the minds of all men, women, children, animals, etcetera, therefore there are is not a soul in all of creation that is truly lost. Even those who have been cast down into the bottomless pit will one day return to the doorsteps of the Lord. Perhaps when most people use the phrase "lost soul" they are speaking entirely from a figurative point of view. If you apply your faith in the Lord of Hosts, you will be granted salvation through the Holy Spirit- that divine spark that resides within each of us who affirm to our faith. Please note that we do not need to wear our faith on our sleeves nor do we need to crusade in the name of a king.

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...

In other words, does the existence of "God" depend upon the mind of Man to support that existence?
by Disappearinghead 5 years ago
It's the central theme of Christian doctrine that unless someone believes in Jesus they are going to hell when they die, which is primarily based on John 3:16 "For God so loved the World........".According to Judaism there is no original sin and nothing to be saved from. A common prayer...
