    Cool question. Metaphorically it is also a cool question, like if a boss tells you to dump toxic waste in a poor neighborhood.

    But I am just a low Christian so I have to give you a direct answer:

    For your soul to be bought and saved is the only price.

      Beautiful, Eric.

      That is a pearl of great price.

    If someone came up to me and said they'd buy my soul for $1 I would take the $1. I don't believe in a devil so I would assume that person was just a mentally unstable person who was giving my $1 for an intangible object.

      And yet, you'd be selling your true self into slavery. When your body dies, you might not know any better, because your true self is dead asleep, dreaming the dream of a physical life you once had.

      Lone77star, you say it like that's fact with no proof whatsoever. If someone wanted to buy your spirit animal (an invisible flying donkey called Gavin) who some people think that it is the true you with no reason why. Would you feel the same way?

    I would not sell my soul to the devil, not for anything.  All of our souls are simply too precious.

      Why? Could it be perhaps that the "soul" is your true self -- the child of God created in Genesis 1:26? God said that he will not always strive with man for he is "also" flesh. He will leave Homo sapiens behind, taking his children with him

      I believe our souls leave our physical bodies and are at one with the universe experiencing eternal peace after we die.

    That's truly funny and sad, if you understood your own question.

    Your soul is your true self -- the immortal spirit within.

    In a very real sense, most people have already sold their souls to physicality -- to ego.

    Selling your soul is selling yourself into slavery. If you think you're only your Homo sapiens body, then you're likely not going to miss much, but in a few thousand or million years, your nightmare will never end, because the mission to save you will have long been over.

    In the spirit of the question: I suppose immortality, eternal youth and a guarantee of freedom from accident and disease  plus protection from other humans would be a good start.

    Less selfishly one might require the return of all the souls they took up to now.

    But I note that some people seem to have lost their soul before they die, and I wonder if they have already sold it.

    All this assumes the devil exists and the soul, whatever it is, exists.

    I would only sell my soul to the devil on 3 conditions.
    1.) It was Gods will. Only God in his infinite knowledge would know how to write a contract that was in my favour. If there was any loopholes in it that were against me. If it wasn't in Gods will then it was not something you want anything to be a part of. A Godless existence, I imagine, would be horrible. void of goodness.
    2.) I could summon an angel to act as power of attorney over the contract so that I could know the truth behind the contract and they would sign it only if Gods will. God only seeks good things for us. As for the devil this is not certain.
    3.) It was in the greater good for all humankind. because I wouldn't want to have to end up a prick. (Not mankind. That might just mean men.) Careful of words.

      Angels are creatures of truth. They can only ever tell their truth. It is against their very nature to do otherwise
