    With the devil in charge - where do you think you will reside after departing the physical world?

    With all the anti-Christ activity abound, the devil is definitely in charge of a large number of individuals.  So, do you believe this is the Hell-on-Earth that the anti-Christians have been praying for.

    I don't believe in the devil or Satan or the end of the world.  I will reside out of my present body and will go to a place where I can review what I have done in this life and what I would like to work on in the next one if I choose to come back to this Earth or someplace else.  I have already visited my personal resting place and have come back. The body is truly a heavy burden but is a vehicle for learning to help others, not a vehicle to use as a sword to judge others.  Everyone has these things in common and will learn about them in their own time and in their own way that they can understand.

      In every evaluation, including your comment here, judgment is utilized by the individual making the statement.  Everyone is not common, but a unique set of personal variables that when viewed by others provides a basis for evaluation.

      We all learn and that is the commonality.

    I just want to point out that there is a very distinct difference between an atheist and an anti-theist, or as you like to say "anti-christians".  Lumping all atheists into one category or group and labeling us as "anti-christians" simply because we disagree with your own personal beliefs/religion is like saying that the only 'true" christians are ones whose doctrines line up exactly with yours - which is the "no true Scottsman" logical fallacy.

      You seem to read between the lines using your own interpretation of the question being asked.  Anti-Christians are many things and so may include what you have stated.  However, history has shown that Anti-Christians exist in many world corners.

    I work in the periphery of law and hard core in crisis intervention. My business card reads "problems resolution". I work with SEC registered stock corps to sole proprietor nails salons, to husbands and wives to gang issues ----- but only when there is a problem. The problems are 80% failure to communicate and properly plan. 10% legal and 10% the economy.

    I know the devil on my left shoulder and I see the devil in others. But bottom line is the devil is in the details. The devil is not a "living being" but a dead one that we resurrect. He is there in our DNA but we must conjure him up within ourselves.

    The Devil cannot be in charge as he can only work through us. You let Evil run your life baby, bad on you, but it only gives me an opportunity to shine my light of love and defeat that which is in your a wrong ----- not you.

    I played football, I downhill skied, ran cross country, played baseball and basketball competitively. I have been preaching and serving for years. It is just in me to compete against the devil within every man.

    Two lawyers oppose each other in court, the devil and me. I will defeat the devil. I will Advocate against evil. The Judge will make a ruling.

      you are correct - we as law abiding members of the society must demand justice.  we must work as a solid team to eliminate terror from the world.

    There is no evidence whatsoever for there being a devil in charge of anything. I do not believe a devil or demons exist based upon the fact that the Hebrew Scriptures do not mention a rebellious arch-fiend of God or demons. These things are derived from Jewish superstition because they were looking for explanations for evil, bad things happening to good people, sickness, disease, and mental illness. The Church took on board these superstitions and enhanced them whilst the Jewish community abandoned them over the centuries.

    Where I end up after death depends upon God's grace.

      The evidence is found on the street in Boston, in the erupting countries of Afghanistan, Algeria, Egypt, Iran, Iraq, Libya, North Korea, and Pakistan.  We shall either eliminate these devils or they will eliminate us.

      So taburkett that would mean that everyone on the planet that does not succumb to a GOD that U choose or the Christianity chooses is of the Devil?  Hogwash!!! Pedophiles of the Catholic church rank high on my list, not other countries.

      Lady Guinevere - your emotional commotion traverses only a sliver of the devil operatives.  For you religion is a battle ground where attacks continue to spew only anti-Christ rhetoric.  Peace is possible in people that  follow the 10  commandments

      Jewish superstition? Even though today's Jews most of them, do not believe in the Serpent that wasn't true in Biblical days. Their seed and human seed mixed and when the flood came, Noah and his family were the only ones not mixed with the seed

    To the best of my understanding (based on scripture) the devil is not "in charge" of earth, God is always in charge and the book of Job exemplifies how Satan can only do what God allows him to do.  That's right, Satan must ask for permission.  Second, Satan is not God so he can only be in one place at one time.  Can he influence many people? Certainly, but as for any "control" over any individuals, it would only be limited to one. 

    By hell on earth, I am unsure if you referring to the "end days" mentioned in scripture?  If so, the final days when God's wrath is poured out on the earth has nothing to do with ungodly people praying for it to happen, but rather, a specific time-line of events as described by Christ in the Gospels and in the book of Revelation (I won't bother to go into detail).

    I still find it rather sad that people continue to attribute far more power to Satan than what he actually has.

      Revelations was written in 79 AD and it about the Eruption of Mount Vesuvius and cannot be used as a sword to get people to be in a religion.  Scriptures about this are halfway down this page: http://www.bible-history.com/resource/ff_vesu.htm

      My reference to the book of Revelation was to its listing of events leading to the events surrounding the second coming of Christ as a futurist interpretation of Revelation, not a means of scaring people into a religion

      I understand that, just dont have much room to write everything down.  Religions use it as a form of mass controlling and fear mongering..not U.

      I find it troubling that people do not recognize the multiple devils in human form who desire to destroy the world.  God may be fighting only one devil, but the world is fighting many more than that.

      The book of Revelation is from the mystical Jewish writings, and is called in the Hebrew language “Torat ha Sod”. It is from the Hebrews not Italians. Don't believe everything you read

    Who says the devil is in charge. People are in charge of their own thoughts and actions.
    After my final death, after all reincarnations I'll be on earth where the other Children of God will be.
    No, this is not hell on earth because hell is the grave
    I am not anti-christian just anti the doctrine.
    I am Jewish and believe what is in the Tanakh not the bible. I do interpret the bible though

    To those who spoke of Revelations
    The book of Revelation is from the mystical Jewish writings, and is called in the Hebrew language “Torat ha Sod”.  It cannot be properly interpreted without an understanding of the concepts and terminology involved in this form of study and writing.
