Do you think the evil being known as satan or the devil exists?
Yes, its nothing spooky, The invisible world with spirts, demons etc does exist, just as The Holy Spirit, The Father, Jesus exist, of course we as Catholics know as well as Christians know that Jesus is everywhere through the abiding presence of the Holy Spirit, it is all one, the triune Godhead, as there are demons, imps and all kinds of horrible torturous spirits that I believe from study are why people who killed a lot of women, children, Hilter, were hearing these invisible spirits which are evil, This is why we have crime, drugs, abortion, infanicide, euthenasia, hate crimes, and a multitude of evil in our World.
Jesus was sent by the Father from Heaven and for the purpose of giving us Eternal Life, our free wills do have a gigantic part in that and God will not force himself on anyone, we have a free moral agency as people to accept or reject. Forgive any spelling errors my spell check is off since my Chrome Browser crashed last evening and I am hoping I will get it fixed soon, til then relying on this internet explorer 9 to keep me where I can write. I hope this adequtely answered the ? Those spirits will attack you in any way fathomable to prevent you from accepting Christ if you have not accepted him, asking Jesus to help even in a whisper always gives a way of escape...out of love of course.
Yes, the enemy of all things good exists. The fact that we have to question it really means is that we have gotten so far away from our original creature that the corruption feels more normal than the Most High's original design. The scripture is clear that man didn't "Know" sin. It was not in his nature in the garden. It took an act of will and the submission of the deity that YHWY placed in man for the knowledge of sin and evil to come into our existence. Now, the world is so corrupt that we have no sensitivity to sin and that part is getting worse. Satan's greatest deception is to get anyone to believe that he's not real, that he doesn't whisper to us and that we don't have to fight him in a very intentional way.
Does Stan exist? Oh yes. He is the ruler of this world, but not for a lot longer. He knows his days are numbered so he is doing all he can to deceive as many as he can before he is permanently thrown into the Lake of Fire.
Satan has been around for a long time, but his existence is still a mystery. It would not be so if more people would read the Bible, especially there in Revelation 12:7-9.
After the war in heaven that broke out in 1914 he has become more visible, being hurled down to the earth and confined there from henceforth. Now his identity is revealed as the one called Devil and Satan, who is misleading the entire inhabited earth.
Confinement to this earth is not to his liking, but he is doing the best he can to have great anger directed against the remaining ones of God’s family here on earth.
The Devil? Well surely he didn't start the wars, the plagues, the famines, the uprisings, the conquers and revolutions. The Devil is an aspect to which we all put the blame on. He is the incarnation of evil, but not a literal being. He embodies the ignorance of man; how we can easily dismiss world atrocities being the Devil in disguise, when it is not the case. Man kills man, man tempts man, man helps man, man saves man. No God or Satan to it. Just plain will.
When Hitler ordered for the extermination of the Jews, it wasn't the Devil who told him to. It was his belief; that God was on his side, that his views were more righteous than any other. It's not the best example, but it illustrates my point. We create just as much "evil" (such as ignorance, genocide, violence, corruption) in this world as much as we create "good". We happen to label each one according to the seven sins and virtues.
Everyone would like to think that their opinion is the right one. The reason we have "evil" is because someone else disagrees.
Sorry for the rant...
No ... I would have to be christian to believe in the devil scaremongering ... and I never quite feel for the holy spicket story.
Yes ! He just left me a vm on my cell
I think? I saw him on Halloween- that 4 sure
Yes, witihout Satan there would be no evil. Satan's influence over Adam and Eve plunged all mankind into sin. There is a lot of people who do not believe that Satan or the Devil exist. Some believe that if they believe there is a Devil, then there must be a hell, so they shy away from believing that Satan exists. Anyways, Satan likes to fly under the radar, he is comfortable when people believe he do not exist, because when hurricanes, tornadoes, mudslides, earthquakes, and all other castrophes, destroy life and homes, people ask why did God let this happen. Devil love it when people blame God for these things, because he wants all mankind to hate God. Satan's purpose is to drive people away from God. This is true look at the world today, God is blamed for just about every evil thing that happens. People need to know that Satan is a Manipulator, and a schemer.
No, evil is but an adjective for our darker personae. It exists within each and every one of us as does its counterpart. It's hard for me to believe in a creature pulling the strings of mankind from somewhere deep beneath the surface of the earth, toasting the damned like marshmallows on a spit. But the idea of him makes it easy for people struggling with their own personal demons to blame their failings on something else.
Satan exists in man's mind. Satan is a hypothetical person created by humans to blame all their faults upon.
Absolutely, it is in the bible and I believe that this demon exists. When you see someone lying or doing stupid things you will now understand that the devil does exist.

Atheists, can you make an argument for god's existence?They say that, in order to understand both sides of an issue, you must know enough that you could argue for the other side. It's a common practice in speech/debate classes. So this question is for atheists; can you make a convincing argument...

Many believers like to say that Atheists should prove that there is no God. Believers should know that existence has to be proved, not the non-existence. If a thing exists, it is possible to prove its existence. So believers should prove the existence of God if he exists. But if they want to do it,...

A few weeks ago I asked what I thought was quite a serious, searching question about the existence of God, and was rather disappointed when it got a very limited response. (This could have been because we were all wrestling this other equally important issues at the time.)Peter Lopez made a valiant...

I can understand the positives of putting your faith in such and such religion, which is why I do not think religion as a whole should be completely eradicated, however in this day and age I honestly wouldn't mind if it was.My question is this: why does religion NEED to exist? If you say "So...
