    Would you sell your soul to The Devil for a million dollars?

    Please assume that there is a devil, and that you can sell him your soul when you answer this question. Also, could you write a Hun based on the above question?

      No, I still wouldn't do it.

      As much as I love them, my beliefs permit me to do this with clear conscience.   I believe that  all humans are a part of the same spiritual greater being.  Threatening family is the same as threatening me.  So no.

      Faith Reaperposted 5 years agoin reply to this

      No, there is only one who can save us, our Lord Jesus Christ.  He can heal too, as He healed me just like that from breast cancer.  If my loved one knows the Lord, there is no worries.  If not, I would pray for healing and salvation.

    My answer is no, I would never do that, but the question is raised of whether you would do that.

    I think several of us could write a hub on the issue, but I would rather spend my time talking about the miracles I have seen in my life than giving the devil any space.

    No,I  would not sell my  soul for any amount of money or for any other reason.I  know that some people  do  make a bargain  with the devil  but they do  not realize what they are doing .I  believe there is a devil and I  know that I do  not want to  have anything to  do with him.  Can you imagine being in a fire where you would  burn forever ? Money would not do you any good then  , when we leave this earth we won't take anything with us . Can you imagine how those people will feel when they  get to Hell and find out the devil is real and  that Hell is real ? It will be their abiding place forever and ever.They bought them selves a one way ticket there ,no turning back!

    The concept "devil" confuses me. It appears to be derived from the concept "sin." Then I hear from a lot of people and priests that man/woman is born with an original sin. Why, if god were perfect should he inject sin in his creations? I hear that in some religions or some Christian sects, the concept of original sin is absent. For example, I hear that Calvinists believe that you are already chosen. You don't have to work hard to earn your salvation. But then some sects say John Calvin was a Swiss, a man and not among the apostles. Now a lot of Calvin's doctrines are incorporated in the bible by the translators.
    Similarly, the concepts of "good" and "bad" are mind boggling. If these were based on culture or what people want and dislike respectively, then they are amenable to logic and morality. To logic, as defined deductively or functionally then dealt with consistently. Devil is associated with fire or purgatory that is used to scare people to believe in god. One should believe in something or somebody without the element of fear. One may adopt a mode of action because of  fear for his life, like fear of a dictator who can incarcerate or have someone killed.

    I'd like to answer this question with a question of my own.

    What am I going to be able to do with a million dollars in hell? and i'm not thinking about this from a religious standpoint, but I don't think any form of demons would have a type of currency. I do assume the devil would want instant gratification, which is why, unless 1 million dollars in hell was worth 1 million in USD, assuming they DID have a form of currency in hell, I think it would be counter-intuitive to accept, hence my question.

    The question is meaningless unless you clearly define the terms of the trade. You could easily claim that hundreds of millions of people sell their souls to the devil for far less. Unless you can explain what it means to sell your soul to the devil and what the alternative is (what you can get without making that trade), don't bother waiting for a serious answer from anyone.

      Your soul is your awareness. To sell is to give in return for something. To give your awareness is to give your attention. To sell your soul means to give exclusive control over your attention in exchange for whatever experience it generates.

    A million dollars is not all that much money. Now a billion dollars, I would be more tempted to sell my soul for a billion dollars. At least a billion dollars or more would get my attention.
    I do not have that much life left, here on earth. At best, maybe 40 more years. What about life after death? How much time do we have in life after death?
    I don't know.
    However, the little life that I have left on this earth is worth billions to me, not just a mere million dollars.

    The majority of humans are selling their soul, as a figure of speech, on a daily basis and without even realising it - and for much less than a million dollars I can assure you :-)

    The devil as a principle in creation is the enslaver - and seeing as most humans are slaves, slaves to desires, slaves to selfishness, slaves to the outcome of their lives, and slaves to consumption and addictions without caring at all about the suffering inflicted on other sentient entities - I'd say that the devil has a vast unhappy flock within his pen.

    More to the point is the question: who ISN'T selling their soul for less than a million dollars?

    Definitely not for any sum of money (after you have a certain amount of money, it doesn't matter anymore how many zeroes there are in your bank account). If there is a devil, then there must be a God or gods, as well as an afterlife. You cannot have negative forces without a positive force or forces, and you can't have a devil without an afterlife.

    Can I write a hub based on the above question? Not me, because I said all there's to say in 3 sentences, and you can't have a hub with 3 sentences. Yet, I believe there are many people who can. That I cannot does not mean that others can't.

    I would LOVE to have one million dollars but my eternal soul is not worth that.  Once the money is gone - then what?

    And more on the subject is my own personal convictions.  I believe in God above and if I were to sell my soul to the darkest entity in existence I would never be able to be granted eternal life with the Lord. I'd never be graced with His presence and I would suffer in a lake of fire for eternity.  I'd take eternal peace with no pain and happiness that can't be described over some cheap thrills in my limited time on Earth followed by an eternity of fire and torture.

    Eternity is forever.  Money is limited.

    To crudely build off of the theory put forth by the illuminated Jack Sparrow, once we have established that souls can be bought an sold, we are just haggling about the price.
    So on that note, before I could commit to any financial transaction of that magnitude I would have to thoroughly read the contract and my lawyers and accountants would have to be well versed on the details. Additionally, before any transaction of any magnitude could take place, these issues would have to be properly addressed, so as to verify their factualness.
    Point of Fact I: Souls do have a finite value and can be bought and sold.
    Point of Interest I: Taking it as fact that souls have value and can be bought and sold, If such a transaction were to be made, is it possible to demand my soul back if I am unsatisfied with the product I received, ie: the money. Or can the Soul be bought back upon the repayment of the money so long as full payment is made within the time allotted during the original transaction? In summary, Is Satan a Pawn Broker?
    Point of Interest II. Assuming the fact that Satan is in Fact a Pawn Broker who buys and sells Souls in exchange for items of an lesser or equal or greater value, And assuming as Fact that Satan will return the soul in exchange for the original amount, in this case 1 Million Dollars, Will Satan Charge Interest?
    Point of Interest III: Assuming all of the Above as fact, What is the Interest Rate Charged by Satan and is it possible to renegotiate this Interest in exchange for better terms.
    Point of Interest IV: Assuming all of the Above as Fact, Upon the successful repayment of the original amount, and the receipt of the original soul, what guaranty will be offered to me that the soul will be returned whole and undamaged?
    Point of Interest V: Assuming all of the above to be true, Upon the successful return of one undamaged soul in exchange for the original value, is it possible to raise my credit score, as such to guaranty better terms during any future transactions?
    Point of Interest VI: Assuming all of the above as Fact, Upon the Successful return of the original unblemished soul is it possible to trade in the old soul for a new model with all of the latest features?

      ZachMayes, I think you are assuming that you are borrowing money, with your soul as a collateral. My understanding is that you are selling your soul in the same manner as if you are selling a house or car, and there's no such thing as a redemption.

    4wardthinkerposted 5 years ago

    Never! Never! Never! If we sell our soul to the devil for any reason whether it is for money or to save a family member, than we are turning power over to the devil rather than God. He has a plan and a purpose for everyone. We can't play God either. What if it saved a loved one only for them to be in constant pain and torment? Or, what if you suddenly become rich from other circumstances? Or what if selling your soul causes you to hurt and destroy others? My guess is, "yes."

    For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.   Ephesians 6:12

    I'm sorry, but my God is bigger than my problems and I will put my trust in him!

    Only if he didn't receive my soul until after my death and the price would be 5 billion. He would also not be able to shorten my time here on earth.  I could do a lot of good with 5 billion dollars and my Lord and Savior could handle one less soul for the good it would do.

      Hmmm...a noble answer, but would The Devil let you do good with his money?

    Absolutely no! For money is only a material thing on this world which we will never bring once we already die.

    I wouldn't sell my soul for money because money is only money. Tradition has it that the legendary blues singer and guitarist Robert Johnson went down to the crossroads, met the devil and traded his soul for the ability to be an extraordinary guitar player. That makes sense to me (Even though that bargain had an apparent expiration date as Johnson died when he was 27).  If I had to trade my soul it would be for an extraordinary talent or ability...something I could build into something more than money.

    No
    It would be a very twisted person who would do such a thing.

    Yes. Assuming the Devil uses PayPal and Hell agrees to pay for any fees, I am not doing it for 9 million and some change. Oh yeah, no charge backs either. I don't want to have to file a fraud claim and deal with underworld banking investigators over my transaction. Instant transfers by ACH only. Otherwise the deal is off and I am writing my Congressman.
    By the way, if there is any way you can spellbind Brynne Larson to be my lifelong sex slave, I'll let you have her when my soul contract is up. Free of charge.
    Keep on hubbing. Blake4d

    To trade eternity for a few dollars, is about the most foolish thing someone could do!

    I shall answer this metaphorically.  One should never attain success through ill gotten means.  Such success is a false success.  Also, such success will incur a strong karmic penalty.  One can gain extreme notoriety from such success, less respect, even being hated by peers, family, friends, & other associates.  Or one can lose what he/she has gained. 

    Also such success is a false success.  If one gains success by negative means, he/she will know subconsciously that what he/she did was quite suspect.  He/she can have a nagging feel if one day being caught &/or punished for his/her ill gain.  Furthermore, his/her conscience will alert him/her regarding his/her wrongdoings by mental, physical, psychological or even psychic angst.   Yes, there is a penalty for selling one's soul to the devil & that is called.......being in HELL either emotionally, mentally, psychologically, or even psychically.

    I would not sell my soul to the devil for a million dollars or for anything. I do not like the idea of only being happy temporarily, but end up being excruciatingly miserable for the rest of eternity.
