    If you had a chance to talk with the devil, without him hurting you, would you do it?

    What would you ask him about? Could you trust anything that he would say?

    We each have the chance to communicate with Satan every day. When we are tempted to do wrong, break the commandments of the holy scriptures or go against the precepts of each's faith, no matter the religious preference. We speak or talk in terms of prayer to our Creator and His son Jesus Christ. This communication to be interpreted by evil as our choice and way to voice our feelings of righteous living. As for me. I will leave communication to the Lord and "as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord."

      Your answer is well written, and I appreciate that you took the time to answer my question. I am talking about a more literal or face to face conversation. I think that I know what your answer would be, pretty similar to mine, but feel free to say so

    Most people live their lives sleeping in his bed. I once lived a life that he loved. I would never go back to that. I have nothing to ask him and nothing he has that I want. All my needs were met on the cross.

    Nope, I don't think so.  He's the embodiment of evil.  I seek love in my life.  I think those two ideas are at odds with each other.

    I would ask the devil that you appear to be more busy than God delievering your dramatic ideas all the time why don't you for a change assist God and use your intelligence to make things better.....but i don't think he would listen...devil  neither have moral values nor heart to be compassionate

    Most probably  will say What the devil you are talking about..

      Nice pun, great picture, and a good answer what more could a Hubber ask for?

    Yes! I would leak a secret to him. I would tell him that his victory lies in conquering himself (ego). If and only if he could bow down (which he would inevitably do sooner or later) to the Lord and confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, he would overcome and 'PUFF!' all things would go back to the beginning when there was no sin and law. I mean the beginning of creation when the world was void.

    But I know he would never give up his fruitless struggle against the children of God. The prophecy in Isaiah 6:8 to 10.

      A great answer but in my case, I think I would probably be scared out of my wits.

    In all honesty I probably would. I think it would be wild to hear his side of the story.

    1. pmorries profile image70
      pmorriesposted 6 years agoin reply to this

      True, but would his side of the story be a little too interesting. He is the prince of lies after all.

      Maybe, lol. It would be wild though to see just how the devil feels about everything you know.

    I have no desire to speak to him, but he is always calling and i refuse to answer him.
    He has nothing that i need answers to. The almighty God is the one i put my trust in and ask him to forgive my sin through his son Jesus Christ.

    Absolutely. I would ask if he's hiring and if I should walk-in or apply online.

    It's funny that most people use questions like this one as an opportunity to push their religious beliefs and bible-thump without answering the question as it was asked.

    I would ask him about all the sickness (metaphorically and literally) in the world and if it's his work or simply God's inability to intervene. I would probably believe him. Why would he not want to take credit for all the vileness in the world? Then again, we must remember "the greatest trick the Devil ever pulled was convincing the world he didn't exist".

      If you could have a cordial conversation with him (like in some old time movies) the conversation could be interesting.

    Ummmm nope...I do not think that we would have anything to talk about.....so i would stay clear as much as possible....however we encounter powers of the darkness every day, it is our choice to be influenced by theses spirits(you can research this in the bible )and when we are influenced we are letting the devil lead us. God gives us free will to do what ever we like, it is up to us to make those choices...so again it would be no.....Great question:)

      I always find it funny  in horror movies when people try to have conversations with the devil or a demon.One could not trust him/her and no one would know how to mess with  your mind more completely.

    I would ask him why he and God can’t just make up and settle their differences. I’m expecting he would pin everything on God but then again it could be true. I mean he did convince Eve with the truth – only it was not the whole truth.

      I think a lot of people miss, " Not the whole truth," part.

    oh no..! because he may not hurt me but he is a really good liar.. he may lure me with all hes lies and that would hurt me.. hahaha

    I would talk to the Devil if I were guaranteed that he could not harm me and he had to tell me the truth.  Not getting harmed is one thing, but talking to a liar is just a waste of time.

    With that said, I would ask the Devil all kind of questions and get his side of the story.  I would ask him what possessed  him to challenge the "All Mighty God" if God is Omnipotent.  The challenge was not logical.
    Why could he not be happy in heaven. Why would he want to try to conquer earth, he did not have anything better to do.

    What is heaven like? What does God look like?
    Is there life on other planets?

    It would be a very lengthy conversation and if the Devil was forced to tell me the truth I would ask all the question about all the differ religions, God etc.  Remember the Devil was supposed to be one of God's greatest students.

    If he could not harm me and had to tell me the truth, I would talk to the Devil, then write a book and make a movie.

    Best wishes.

    I doubt that I'll ever have that chance, except he comes to me. There's nothing I'd have to say to him. I doubt he'd try to hurt me. I don't think it's his immediate aim or permission. He has better and more devious ways to undo humans. But I place more faith in God's protection. God is greater and it only takes my call on him.

    I would ask what his philosophy was, what he believed he was, how he came into existence and why he is so infamous. After that I'd have a conversation  about how much life must suck for him. And then ask him if he knew death, and have a conversation about death.

    Yes I would do it!  I would ask him, "Why bother?" I would then tell him, "You've already been defeated!"
