In a word, pride. The same thing that caused Satan's fall causes many of us to think that we somehow know better than God what is right and what is wrong. What is good and what is evil. Many today seem to think they are God instead of the one true Yahweh who is the Lord God alone. That's my take on it.
"Forgive them oh my Father, for they know not what they do." The Christ.
In Yoga philosophy, this is called Ignorance. In a manner of speaking, no one is to blame, really. It simply means that what may appear good and right to us, is only a veil, a cloud, a curtain. The multitude asked that Barrabas be freed and Christ crucified. They were not aware of His status.
Ignorance makes us think that we are separate; our own island; that we control our destiny; that the pull of the material is stronger than the wings of Love.
God is playing a divine and loving game, and the veil is sometimes necessary for us to grow. Ignorance appears in the form of inner weapons.
The devil is simply obstacles or impediments in our nature, which has not been touched by the Higher Light: Doubt, fear. insecurity, hatred, greed, anger, attachments, ego and lust. All else is a by-product of these mentioned ones. Much Peace to us all.
Did you know yoga was a sex cult originally and its leader had sex with the followers. Would you let your gf or wife join that... or are you ignorant lol? Please don't use Yoga and the Bible as both good and related.
Your comparison of the Buddhist sense of ignorance is a world apart from the Christian notion. In Yoga-Buddhism, ignorance is connected with attachment to the physical world which is viewed as temporal. The Buddhists have no god.
@Robert what yoga do you mean? Jnani Yoga for instance is not even physical, it's a philosophy. Or Yoga sutras of Patanjali. Why would he not use a reference to Yoga? Btw it's like saying do you know some priests are pedofiles so why would you join..
MAN: Why do u blv there is "THE GOD" in ANY OTHER GOSPEL when HE said in HIS WORD "No other GOD" (Ex 20:3), when HE said "ANY OTHER Gospel WILL BE "ACCURSED" (Gal 1:6-9)? Why do MANY thk "THE GOD" is in ANY OTHER DOCTRINE or do u not BELIEVE BIBLE?
Jesus WAS NOT a pacifist and real Christians ARE NOT TO BE PACIFISTS Yoga and any other religion HAS NO place in Christianity. Anyone who promote these practices and beliefs IS NOT to be considered a Christian and should not be believed of followed
One factor is ignorance. Yoga teachers and how-to books seldom mention that the discipline began as a sex cult — an omission that leaves many practitioners open to libidinal surprise. from the NYTIMES!(: Priests aren't taught to rape they sin!
Charlie could you do me the favor of citing something that says Yoga is a religion. Like a practitioner that says so. And then cite me the Bible chptr and verse that prohibits deep excercise with meditation. You do not know crap about yoga
You really do not get Yoga at all. Yoga is not part of a religion. What happened you read an article and now you can declare for God what is OK? Have you ever learned Yoga? Of course not you just pass judgment.
Hatha Yoga (one branch) began flourishing during a period with more interest in Tantra. But Yoga existed before that and also non-physical. Yoga sutra of patanjali: marital fidelity or sexual restraint (ethical prescript, before Tantra)
@f, I said we, that includes you being your own worst enemy so I am glad to see YOU agree that you also are your worst enemy. Or did you just offer proof by making snide remarks, malign and insult, evidently the best YOU have to offer.
Of course U said, "WE." U constantly make the error of INCLUDING others.Not man enuff 2 stand on UR own. News flash: U do NOT speak 4 others. Nor do others see U as GOD altho U THINK U R. U R the one who needs to shake in those over-sized boots!!
False pride or vainglory. Somehow we get to thinking that our normal healthy pride is bad. We forget to be proud children of God. We do not let our light shine. What a shame. So we look elsewhere for our pride in ourselves. And the result is the wrong kind of pride and we indulge it. The finest weapon against goodness is a lack of self esteem. That "I am ok" attitude and acceptance of who we are and we are perfect. Is the battle ground. OK leaves a gap where false pride can sneak in. We are exceptional is the mantra. It is a wonderful truth in us. We must be humble but must maintain ourselves in our humility. I look to the Lord. Not to myself but I will not let myself be corrupted.
lack of self esteem is from tool the satanic psychcology cult. and is contrary to scripture. we are not to make provision for our flesh, but to CRUCIFY it. Rom 13:14 But put on the Lord Jesus Christ, and make no provision for the flesh, to fulfi
What is the right kind of pride. In Homeric Greece pride was great, but hubris was bad. Hubris as an extreme kind of unfounded arrogance. But then again those were times of Heroes and Losers. We live in the times of Saint and Sinners in a sense.
When "worshiping" GOD (Jn 4:23-24) one "MUST "worship in "Spirit" & in truth!" Rm 8:8 ("flesh can't pls GOD;" Gal 5:25 "Walk in the Spirit!")! When "teaching" HIS WORD, one is "worshiping" HIM! Therefore, Martin Heidegger doesn't apply!
Banks are businesses that are guilty of usury. Do not deceive yourself about following God's word: "If you should lend money to my people, to the afflicted alongside you, you must not become like a usurer to him. You must not lay interest upon him."
I thought usury was charging int. at unreasonably high rates.In what u quoted,Exodus 22:25,it refers to just charging interest to "the afflicted" of God's people as usury.How does this apply to the banks of today?Unreasonable int.is illegal
See how "IGNORANT" ppl r of God's Word? The 613 Mosaic Laws are no longer effective (Old Covenant)! Jer 31:32.. "New Covenant," Not according to the covenant that I made with their fathers..to bring them out of Egypt.." It's GONE (Heb 9 & 10)!!!
Charging interest is usury, period: “On usury he has given, and interest he has taken and he positively will not keep living. All these detestable things he has done. He will positively be put to death." The Mind Deceives to make people feel good ..
How do we know devil speak of in bible is truly evil and demonic and Christ isn't demon playing god? According to bible, devil is anything that won't submit to Christ or contradict it, eg other religion, science. Bible say kill NonBeliever NonVirgin
peter..."Bible say kill NonBeliever Non Virgin." Well now, there's a book we can really sink our teeth into & KEEP IN OUR HOMES for our kids & everyone to read.Nice bedtime stories, good lessons on life. Yeah, in fact I think I'll buy a few b
Peter, where in the bible does it say kill nonbelievers or nonvirgins. I have never came across that one. If you can give me the book, chapter, and verse. I do not expect you to give me that information because it is not there.
Yeah because the only way you can win this argument is by assuming that Christians take everything in the bible literally. You don't actually know what we believe you're just trying to pick a fight. You're wrong. We don't take everything literally.
Each person interprets the Bible differently, and fighting and arguing over what is says and what is means is useless. We all have our right to make our choice whether to accept God or not. The Bible does teach not to force God on anyone.
To judge the Bible as irrelevant simply because people have different interpretations is ludicrous. By that reasoning how can you state "The Bible does teach not to force God on anyone."Is that your interpretation?Certainly not everybody's.
TRUTH!!! Not MANY "WAITED" (Acts 1:4) for "HELP" (John 14:26; 16:13) from the HOLY SPIRIT & read Bible "literally!" Why so MANY denominations & interpretations!!! U thk hocus pocus, not real, & doesn't "lead & guide into ALL truth?"
If we really understand Christianity in detail and not follow it passively, we realized the devil speak of in the bible, isn't necessary a demon, but might even be a god. We need to remember, not everything the bible speak of is true, the bible is full of false information. For example according to the bible, the earth is only 5000 years old, it is created by god in 7 days and god first created earth, then created sun. But we know for a fact, the earth is older then 5000 years, the sun was first form, then the 9 planet circling the sun was form, through the remaining dust, that didn't become a part of the sun.
1 John 2:22 [Who is the liar but he who denies that Jesus is the Christ? This is the antichrist, he who denies the Father and the Son.]
If u read the bible carefully, u realized Christianity show hostility to anything that don't submit to Christ or contradict the bible and claim for them to be evil, lie and demonic. So, when a scientists say the earth is over 5000 years old, according to the bible, he is evil and demonic and speak of lies.
So, not all of those who are evil, demons and speak of lies, within the bible, are truly evil. In fact in comparison, to them, Christ is frequently the evil one. For example, the bible teach Deuteronomy 22:20-22 [But if the thing is true, that evidence of virginity was not found in the young woman, then they shall bring out the young woman to the door of her father's house, and the men of her city shall stone her to death with stones, because she has done an outrageous thing in Israel by whoring in her father's house. So you shall purge the evil from your midst.]
So, before we simply accept what Christ refer as demon and evil, to be the true demon and evil and Christ is the representative of good, in comparison to it, we do need to think for ourself first, is such anti christ really evil? Or is Christ the real evil here?
Lucifer comes laterChristianity's origin devil is Lilith, in pre Christian legion, Yehwha (Christ) send demons to kill Lilith's children for not marrying him, so as revenge Lilith killed Yehwha's son Adam. In China, Lilith is the mother of creation.
Many credible documentaries are put on youtube these days. Academic studies, even have ways of referencing it. The 1st is documentary, 2nd just pop culture, I thought interesting to show, cause, from the same ancient legion, Asia side with Lilith.
Getting information from YouTube is not seeking the TRUTH. God wants us to read the Bible for ourselves, that's how to get real truth, which will set you free. Some stuff on YouTube is informative, and there's other stuff that's garbage/myths.
I watched them both, what a theatrical waste of time. Maybe to you the Bible is hocus pocus but these videos and demeaning to any real thinker. Even in the "documentary" the source just plain stinks and no one is backing it up.
Yet, what is the source of the bible? According to it, anybody that contradict it is a liar, yet, it say the earth is only 5000 years old, despite its million of years old, it say sun is created after earth, despite, we know sun is created 1st.
Buddy believe or don't. But at least understand the concept of a God. God can make the sun younger or older than earth, In one hour he can create rocks that are 2 billion years old and he can create dinosaurs and delete them in the blink of an eye.
I am Christian and the Bible does not have poetic story telling? They are real stories. Where are you getting that the Catholic church teaches that?! The Bible does not call it poetry! Also earth has not been proven that old. That isn't fact.
Norine: Devil speak in bible, can easily be seen as brainwashing, claiming for self (Christ) as good and others as evils. Just like how in Communist China&North Korea, it claim self (communist) as good and others as evil(highlighting US as evil k
ALL have been DECEIVED by SATAN! Catholic church (Nicene Council) "twisted" religion (SATAN)! "Good is bad & bad is Good" (SATAN) as in Is 5:20! ALL DECEIVED & why ALL need HOLY SPIRIT to "lead & guide" (Jn14:26;16:13) r will remain IGN
Norine Williams: Everyone has been pushed into the devil's camp but yourself? How did you manage to have such an exceptional ability? I'm not taunting you. I'd really like to hear your reasoning why some few individuals can spare themselves.
I’m 65 yrs old & have sinned (possibly) MORE than u!Still a spiritual warfare, but the “PWR of the CROSS” (Holy Spirit)! FEW becuz MOST rather blv “twisted” teachings rather than “chronological order” of WORD! SOME not NT blvrs AT ALL (II Tim 3:1
I'm totally baffled. He WANTS to convince people he does NOT exist? Then if he succeeds in this, why would anyone follow or listen to or be tempted by a creature who does not exist? 1 of U 3 ladies care to explain? Thnx.
Paula - I have studied hypnosis, including mass-hypnosis, religious and political brainwashing for 5 decades. I wish these 3 ladies could read their comments with my eyes.(You are right ladies: I amputated my horns and my tail, LOL,LOL, LOL!!!!!!)
Eric, I think it is important for parents to teach their children what the practice and believe, but we need to allow them to make their own choice. God wants each of us to make our own personal choice.
Eric, children should be taught respect, hard work, humility, and love. I say good job on that. Those are things that are not being taught and enforced enough. I do not think you are brainwashing there. Those are things that are socially correct.
Paula, if you believe that there is no hell, and no devil, then you commit whatever sins you want, and don't care. People like that don't realize they are following the devil. That's different than when one knows and chooses to follow him.
LOLIT..I see. Hmm, I do not need 2 know a devil & hell exist 2 B a good woman. I have morals, a conscience & a heart. I could never CHOOSE to follow evil no matter what. It matters not 2 me if Satan exists or he doesn't.He's simply "nothing"
@Lolita, Lies and deceit? I'll buy that. Now tell me, is Hiliary Clinton working for the devil or is the devil working for her?or is she the devil? (and that's why the devil wants us to believe he doesn't exist!) :-)
@Ana810 It is just a famous quote of Baudelaire that is used a lot, would not really credit Jay-Z for original thought. “La plus belle des ruses du diable est de vous persuader qu'il n'existe pas." I think it can even be found before Baudelaire.
@TSAD Why "hung up" on politics? God's "WILL" will be accomplished & all prophecies in Scripture WILL be "fulfilled!" GOD puts either Republicans or Democrats in ofc to accomplish "HIS WILL!!! READ THIS: Romans 13:1-8!!!
There is NO DEVIL. The devil is an image invented by humankind to rationalize the more negative aspects of nature & even the supernatural. Humankind see the devil is the epitome of the darker side of life & nature. Humans even view the devil as representing the more negative, even evil side of themselves.
Religionists used the devil to represent the more carnal, uncivilized aspect of humanity. To them, whatever isn't considered sacred or spiritual was relegated to the evil, even demonic. The devil was used to symbolize the more unbridled & worldly. The devil was also used by religionists to scare the masses & to consolidate more power & sway over them. The devil was a tool used by religionists to have the masses live in fear & utter conformity to religious dictates.
Religionists are also fond of using the devil to keep the more naïve, gullible, & other fearful into powerless submission & blind obedience. To religionists, people who exercise their power & have a sense of self are caving in to the demonic. After all to religionists, the devil is the sign of rebellion & self & anyone who exhibits such characteristics are aligned to the devil.
The devil was used by religionists to scapegoat others whom they are suspicious of, are different, &/or refuse to conform to certain, prescribed paradigms. Religionists from the early Christian era on, were fond of demonizing different belief systems & fractions of different belief systems within Christianity. In the Dark Ages, heretics, Jews, Pagans(who were castigated as witches) were viewed as aligned with the devil because they didn't subscribe to the prescribed religious paradigms of the day. The result of this was persecution of such peoples because religionists viewed the former as "doing the devil's work."
Even today, religionists view many aspects of modernity & progress as veering away from God & playing into the hands of the devil. They even assert that because of increasing modernity & progress that societies will eventually be destroyed. They further interject such hyperbole as the so-called Anti-Christ, 666, the rapture & tribulation as a subterfuge, asserting that the world is increasingly being "ruled by the devil".
Concept realized and registered. A beast has such a tangible reality. Truly the beast is in each one of us, not a creature. Should I say my evil nature or should I say the devil? I like blaming it on something personally but maybe that is a scapegoat
good vs bad...virtue vs vice...criminal vs lawman...love vs. hatred...forgiveness vs. vengeance..wealth vs. poverty...knowledge vs. ignorance...light vs darkness...God vs. satan...& on & on & WHAT? LIFE vs DEATH. Is there a point? a secr
My dear Grace sorry to burst your bubble but the devil exists.The good news is that God also exists. Just because you cannot see air does not mean it is not there.It is the same with the existence of God and the devil. Read Romans 1:22
Joyce - Furnish another example. because air CAN be proven to be there. And even though no one knows WHAT electricity is, its existence can be proven. Please don't check it out by touching live wires. I have sinned, and nothing happened.
Dear me Val, weren't U told that NO ONE may "make fun" here at HP but the Great&Powerful TSAD? That is HIS forte and only his! Ask anyone here.He has insulting, disrespecting & scoffing down to a PSEUDO-Science.Don't U DARE even SPEAK! U got
Who the HELL RU that U delude urself into thinking U can TELL ANYONE WHAT 2 DO?? U do NOT tell me what to do.Now UR the Topic Police? LOL"Personal accusations NOT YOU?! OK..Son of Hillary.That's ALL U DO! Want the LIST? U make Christ CRY.
Thank you for making it perfectly obvious who is the Queen of insulting, disrespecting & scoffing. I could cite myriad examples of your duplicitous accusations but the pot calling the kettle black is an appropriate description of you.
TSAD - I am just having enormous fun unmasking so called "loving" religionists who use Q &A, to vent out their very unholy, unloving, emotionally unstable mentality. It takes much more than that to be taken seriously. But here I go to watch som
U have never admitted to being a black kettle B4..perhaps U are growing.We ALL know what you can CITE, T~Yes, we do! "Duplicitous accusations"..I'd love to hear Daffy Duck say THAT! C if Kabal can say it! UR dismissed! B OFF W/ U serf. "Queen"
I know ur kind very well, you go out of ur way to ignore truth& subscribe to any opinion that avoids the fact you are a sinner &need a savior.U understand the Bible just well enough to know that u want to reject its redemptive message.
TSAD - It's getting better and better. How do you know what "Satan wants me to do"? Are you two close? And in what hallucination did you hear that I "need a savior"? Save yourself, seek some professional help, I am too busy having fun here.
If this is your idea of fun you live a pitiful life.The day will come when you will wish you could take back what you consider fun &wish you had read those links&taken heed.I pray for your sake when that day comes it's not too late for u.
TSAD - If you want to be a "loving and positive Christian" then act like one. For here you are all wound up for yet another round of arguing with people. Well, I can give you a mirror, but I can't make you look. And neither do I care.
We know what Satan wants you to do because the Bible,the most important&influential book of all time,the greatest by a long shot,tells us Satan is the father of lies seeking whom he may devour.Educate yourself Val,you'll find u aren't cute!
&your idea of a loving Christian is someone who will watch&say nothing as you merrily tread along a path to destruction of your eternal soul?A loving Christian wouldn't dothat,ur default is try to demean the messenger,tactic used to denytruth
TSAD - So, you still don't see it that you are imposing with your beliefs? Let me make it simple for you. In dictionary, under letters "N" and "I", you'll find words "NOT INTERESTED". Learn their definitions - so far you seem to need it badly.
Val,if you aren't interested why r you even conversing with me?I'm not forcing anything on u nor forcing you to believe anything.Just another one of your tactics?Why don't you just change the channel if you aren't interested?URbeyond me!
TSAD - Like I said - "Not interested" IN YOUR PREACHING, but interested in having fun of witnessing religious contradiction between much advertised "peace, love, acceptance" and a good old adrenaline + cortisol play of nerves.
TSAD - One LAST tip. I am very easy to ignore, so you don't have to lecture to me, just let me be "unsaved" if that's my choice. If you don't know how to do this "ignoring", let me show you. From now on I won't be responding to anything you write.
Odd, like I'm not allowing you to choose? Thank you for giving me such power but I'm sorry, that power is only in your hands. Ignoring is the lesson YOU just learned although you are kind of old to be learning it now I'd say.
Don't believe in "spirits," huh? If you don't, then you are right in your DECEPTION of "NO DEVIL!" However, if you do, there are "evil" & "Good" spirits!!! Is this what u call "evil" MORALS & "good" MORALS? Get a LIFE!!!
Apparently the greatest weapon used by the adversary is reason. Just a small dose of it, along with some courage, can instantly destroy this man-made God that has been imposed upon us by rigid indoctrination. The God of the Bible is an improbable, man-made fraud, using fear to keep itself from being exposed...and vanquished.
So by saying this, you have basically admitted (unknowingly) that the devil's tactics are so good they work. What you call reason and courage is actually lies and deceit. Ergo, the devil has convinced you God does not exist.
Eric I have no need to submit to ANY authority.Sorry if u just cant wrap your brain around that, as your analysis is weak. I sometimes try to get indoctrinated people to see how simple the answer is Loli, sorry but that's a disturbing world view
Insanity on display. Gotitwrong, using what you call a "manmade fraud," the devil, whom you refer to as the adversary, to make a case "the adversary" uses reason to vanquish God is as far from reason as you can get. U R insane.
TSAD, you believe in a magic bloodthirsty tyrant, written about in an ancient book of abject childish nonsense, yet u have the gall to refer to those who don't share this delusion as INSANE. But u are the one with no proof. Sad. I would be angry too
I keep asking u "unbelievers" to furnish a book w/as many "accurate" fulfilled prophecies written before the Bible & ALL can't!!! ONLY GOD could have known future events yet u ALL r n denial!!! Until then, u "prove" ur "unbelief!"
Our words. Proverbs 21:23 Whoever keeps his mouth and his tongue keeps himself out of trouble. I heard a story when I was little about the dip in our lips, I was told the archangel Michael had put his finger on our lips to stop using our words before we listen. Like when you tell little kids to "shhh" when they are being to noisy.
The greatest, and possibly the only weapon that "devil" is using are those who made him up and advertised him. Without them, he would have never outgrown the status of a boogie-man.
It may take a couple of more millennia - if stupidity in us allows us to survive that long - to wake up to the reality of mass hypnotism applied upon us by those in whose interest it is to keep us in dark. Boogie-man was invented by parents for an easier manipulation of misbehaving kids - but who would ever think that some people would never grow out of it in their adulthood, with this need to replace him with something like "devil".
Indeed, fear is playing strange tricks on us, and it becomes truly pathetic when it hijacks our sense of rationality.
Interesting concept that man is stupid. Or maybe you just mean stupidness in us. Same thing. The devil is a belief system construct. It is healthy. My son goes to church with me every Sunday, he has never asked about the devil. I am rational.
I do not agree with what you are stating in your answer, but as an educated person I respect your thoughts. However, how can thousands of years of people believing there is a God and a devil be considered stupid when we all can think on our own.
Steven - I did not say people believing in devil are "stupid"; they can believe what they want. I was referring to stupidity of those who are threatening with our extinction - the militant ones. So easy to misread when you want to.
Vladimir, thank you for the clarification. Unfortunately, there will always be people who are militant, and I call these people extremists. Our job as clear minded individuals is to ignore them, and that is the main thing they look for is attention.
Hx...To my knowledge there has been no memo from HP about WHO can or cannot read WHICH Hubs & WHY. R U self-appointed "Specific Reader POLICE?" We READ what & why we choose, despite our interests, beliefs &/or affiliations. Consider Ursel
Hxprof- Still unclear. Why were you "baffled"? Were the believers the ONLY ones appropriate to answer the question? You didn't say "should", but you implied it by being "baffled". I talked about "fear", so debunk fear, not me, as if discrediting me.
Got me baffled also. Why would someone who does not believe in the devil, want to answer a question that presupposes the existence of the devil. To debunk the notion of the devil? Well that is not the question. But I suppose some need a forum.
Each person is open to answer these questions, and I enjoy seeing the answers from people with other beliefs. Learning or trying to understand such a question deserves to hear responses from people from all different beliefs.
Hxprof - Reason for my answering is clear - being "baffled" over how can anybody of sane mind believe in "powers" of some invented entity? Why don't we also talk about "generosity" of Santa Claus or "beauty" of Aphrodite pretending to be grownups?
One of Satan's weapons is when a person is a "drifter" (frequent idle time). Drifters might participate in unintentional self-harm or harm to others. This is why it's very important to have a vision, goals, daily tasks, accomplishments, and positive purpose in life.
So many answers, so much foolishness, NO scripture. and since this is posted in the "Christian who cares what the non-Christians (Christian bashers) have to say?
HERE is what the SCRIPTURES SAY. James 1:14-15 14 But each one is tempted when he is drawn away by his own desires and enticed. 15 Then, when desire has conceived, it gives birth to sin; and sin, when it is full-grown, brings forth death.
IN OTHER WORDS it is YOUR carnal,unredeemed FLESH, That he tempts you with.
Eph 6:1-18 Don't thk he Satan doesn't exist! (v10) "Be strong in the LORD" (v12) "We wrestle not against flesh & blood, but against principalities, against pwrs, against rulers of darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in hi places.
This depends on the person, and I say this each of us has different weaknesses in which the devil can use against us. We need to take into consideration in appearance the devil is not ugly, but very appealing to the eyes. When the devil was cast out of Heaven he was the most beautiful angel. Therefore, if it is pride, money, or lust is the individuals weakness that causes them to sin then the devil will take the necessary form to cause them to sin. Therefore, there is no one effective tool that the devil uses against us.
greed and deception. People are scared simple and love to have a sense of security. The devil gives the perception that the world is going to crap when it is man who creates chaos. Then he feeds off our natural greed in always wanting more and will do anything to have more, even selling our damn soul. http://hubpages.com/religion-philosophy … -Damnation
the devil is omnipotent, but he has to entice people and he can only do it by something that allures a man. I feel the devil will first try and entice a man and then a woman will follow. To entice a man he will try and give the maximum pleasure to a man in the form of desire for a younger girl.
In Hindu mythology there are hundreds of examples when a devil enticed men with women and dance . This is the favorite weapon of the devil as he will pander to a latent desire of most men for love, sex and companionship of a younger woman. Generally, such pleasures are transient and once the Devil has the man in his mesh he will possess his soul. So the the devil's forte is pandering to a baser desire of man.
Madan...how "FASCINATING" Hmmm "something that allures man."?Wonder what that could possibly be? Oh wait, I see. U've given that fact. It's those "younger women dancing." Right. Thank U!!I needn't worry. I'm not young. Keep that "baser desire!"
Yes Madan, Satan plays upon each person's "weakness!" Why we must be "anointed" w/HOLY SPIRIT to HELP US! Paula, why work for Satan? Does he pay well? He has "DECEIVED" you!!! I'm still waiting for that book???
Devils who look and sound like Angels. For instance, if someone with power and authority tells you need need to take into your home and adopt the ways of aliens who hate Christianity, and who beat their wives and who abandon their mothers to an approaching army, that's satanic advice. Especially if those aliens have a long, long list of anti-Christian behaviors such as:
1) Female genital mutilation 2) Punishing rape victims 3) Honor killing 4) Strapping bombs to children 5) Sexually enslaving women 6) Punishing homosexuals 7) Murdering homosexuals 8) Child marriage and Child Brides 9) Domestic Violence 10) Disciplining or Punishing Wives 11) Beating Wives 12) Violence Against Women 13) Forced Marriage 14) Women being beaten or raped for wearing "inappropriate clothing" 15) Women being beaten or raped for leaving the house without a male relative as a chaperon 16) Women and men beating beaten and sometimes killed for expressing inappropriate thoughts in a blog. 17) Women and men being beaten and sometimes killed for being accused of disrespecting the religion of peace and tolerance.
Also, the belief that flogging, stoning, beheading are appropriate punishments for adultery, apostasy, witchcraft and blasphemy.
Christians or the Bible don't condone violence. You are mistaking us for muslims and the quran. Stoning was for the old testament and doesn't apply to nowadays if you actually read the Bible. Wow you are spreading lies. No forced marriages now.
That's odd, I thought the Bible (according to Link) is a fairy tale. So you believe in the fairy tale Devil of the Bible? and his weapon is imagination...hmmm, well I guess if you play all sides you have to be right once.
Playing the fool again? NO, this is what I mean "the Bible rockets over into the realm of fiction. Think of it this way, if the Bible is truth, then so is Harry Potter, Twilight, and every other fantasy book out there." & the rest no roomhere
You are pathetic lol, if you don't see what I showed you said is explicitly calling the Bible a fairytale(not just parts fiction)you are dumber than I gave you credit for.But you do see it and that's why you avoided referring to it.Play the fool
Link..How"Discussion"works:Exchange ideas&opinions w/o attack,& insult.U do NOT need to defend UR beliefs.So WHAT if U think the Bible is fiction? I C the OT worse savagery, cruelty & insanity than ISIS. WHAT "FOOL" dares tell me what to
Tsad you do realize that me calling the Bible fiction doesn't automatically equate to saying the entire thing is made up right? You know it's a thing for works of fiction to have historical backgrounds...right?
Planet Earth to Link? Really? I'd say this does "if the Bible is truth, so is Harry Potter,Twilight,&every...fantasy...out there.I've read a#of fantasybooks over the years...the stories...the Bible contains far surpass most I've read"~link
Paula,join a conversation how about sticking to subject which is Link says the devil,who he thinks is a fairy tale,uses imagination as a weapon to trick people.I think it's odd he uses what he says is a fairy tale character as proof of anything
"The Bible stories far surpass most I'VE read." Now that's fascinating. Sounds precisely like an "OPINION," which are FREE & available to all of us.Perhaps UR IMAGINATION far surpasses that of ALL mortal men. Increase UR library? PEACE in Chris
Who said it wasn't an opinion?Link always ridicules people of faith.You know you are a great one for saying do as I say not asIdo"w/o attack,& insult"?this coming from the pot that calls one's opinion "bat shit crazy" calling the kettle black?
Thank U, but U needn't refer to me as "a great one." & I don't mind being a "pot," just so it's useful &..It is. & TSAD RIDICULES Ppl WHO DO NOT BELIEVE.Ur point? The Amazing T is bigger, better, stronger, smarter? OK, Ur Majesty. I see,
I certainly DO tell it like it is, as I see it..just as U do.WHETHER I'M "LIKED OR NOT." That is ur stock comment. It's getting OLD. & boring & self-serving & it's time U change your lines, Almighty one. I'm at home plate.Try a better cur
Like any1would waste time searching ur comments over the years?I've shown,you clearly said the Bible was worse than make believe stories.So what does that mean you think of people who believe it?U R http://cdn.meme.am/instances/400x/64025931.jpg
No what's amazing is how you say things and then"pretend"you didn't say them then when proven you did you claim they have some other meaning than the obvious,obvious to any normal reasoning person that is.A lot like Steve Urkel,any relation?
Yeah,that was your first mistake,you didn't even remember you said that stuff on your own hubpage.Talk about insult, you insult urself with your own words&now you pretend to be in denial.You should have been an actor,u r good at scripted lines.
Ego?You are the one who can't admit to anything when the evidence YOU provided refuting what you want us to believe is staring you right in the face.Your spinning this still,if u actually believe your spin,is a sign of a serious psychosis.
Like I said,if you really believe your spin you need to get help.If you just can't admit you are wrong though you know it,then you are just an adult stuck with the emotions of an immature child & you need to grow up.Seriously,I am threw here
Theres nothing to spin my dear Tsad. You said I called the Bible a fairy tale and then quoted me not calling it a fairy tale. You changed tracks and said I ridicule all of faith all the time yet cant provide an example
@Link & Paula: U BOTH KNOW there's a CREATOR (GOD) but PRIDE (I Jn 2:16) denies!!! If u would, pls "provide a book w/as many "accurate fulfilled prophecies" written before Bible, to confirm your "unbelief," I'd appreciate it!!! Until then "HOT A
His greatest weapon? Satan's greatest weapon? Satan is powerless.
He has no weapons. He is a liar and a user but he has already been defeated by Jesus Christ, his creator and he knows it.
Nothing he can do can be considered a weapon against God who is his only Nemisis, the inescapable agent of his downfall.
He is all bluster and the only power he has over anyone is the power that person gives him. Sure he uses tactics like deceit, Pride (Deuteronomy 8:11-17) (Isaiah 14:12-15; Ezekiel 28:14-17; 1 Timothy 3:6). Envy, the kind of envy that is a distorted, selfish sense of fairness, Lust for forbidden pleasures, Itching ears, Disappointment, Discouragement, Doubt, Division... all devices, not weapons. Devices that are ours, and he uses them.
Satan is powerless, WE are our own worst enemies. To say he has a weapon gives him too much credit and implies that he has power.
But of course someone is going to disagree with me, with the truth and so be it. In that case I don't wish to appear argumentative so if they must have an answer, if I have to concede Satan does have a weapon, I'll just say from a worldly perspective one could say the evidence points to the Modern Democrat Party which he is using to destroy America and by so doing bring the world to its knees.
("can we switch the topic of this Q&A to humor?") I DO what U want & U accuse me of being OFF TOPIC! There's just no pleasing a mule, is there? U have issues w/ firm decision! rope-a-dope! I sure roped myself a dope! Off/OnTopic Queen PEACE
TSAD: I GIVE WORD! So if any "troll," it's GOD! Ur "TWISTED" belief (no spirit n us?) is what ur angry about! ROB:U don't KNOW WORD either (Don't blv NT?)! II Tim 3:16 says "ALL" Scripture is given by inspir of GOD..." U 2 r "2 peas in a pod!" IGNOR
YES!!! Those who DID NOT "WAIT" (Acts 1:4) for HELP (Jn 14:26; 16:13) fm THE HOLY SPIRIT but read "LITERALLY" w/no "understanding" but their OWN (Prov 3:5), will ALWAYS "disagree!" IF TRUE BELIEVER, MUST do as told "WAIT" for "HELP!" ALL SPIRITUAL!
@Robert, comments to MY ANSWER get replies, and in this case a little tit for tat suffices. :-o like Paula pretends I'm off topic cause she obviously didn't even read my answer which is totally on topic. Losers.She just looks at the pictures
Satan has used one single weapon against all humanity, which is the mother lode of all other pieces of his weaponry and that is LETHARGY.
Lord only needs our beliefs to be accompanied with "obedience" and an inactive and lethargic 'believer' can never obey the Lord's decree.
[[James 2:17 In the same way, faith by itself, if it is not accompanied by action, is dead. 18 But someone will say, “You have faith; I have deeds.” Show me your faith without deeds, and I will show you my faith by my deeds. 19 You believe that there is one God. Good! Even the demons believe that—and shudder. 20 You foolish person, do you want evidence that faith without deeds is useless ? ]]
Most of the times, Satan manages to remove the active part from our beliefs.
When Satan is "scarce" in one's life, means they have already been "deceived" & he's won their souls! Why would Satan bother "messing with" his child (Jn 8:44)? IF Satan "not scarce," you are a JESUS Follower (Jn 15:18-25)!!!
YOUR 911 HUB DEFIES THE WORD OF GOD! READ ROMANS 13:14 "..MAKE "NOT" PROVISIONS FOR THE FLESH.." WOULD "A PROPHET OF GOD" DO THIS? YES, SATAN "GETS THEM ..BY DEFAULT & IGNORANCE" IF THEY DON'T HAVE "HELP" FM THE HOLY SPIRIT!!! MATTHEW 7:15!!
You don't have the HS. It is not literal. Put on the clothes of Yeshua (belief) and do not indulge in evil desires. You are literal. Scripture is Holy Spirit revealed. It is speaking about LUSTS not food & water goofball.You make people run from
U defy Scripture! Asking one to "prepare" literally when JESUS says "He would provide" is unScriptural! You lead people to hell!!! They'd better STUDY or u will destroy them (Hosea 4:6)! BTW: "Welcome back!"
Again you are not HS led to understand scriptures. UR literal.UR infatuated w/Satan. Where is your GOOD News of Jesus? I never see U w/His good news. U talk more of Satan & deny God's power. I have a LIFE dear and it is for Good NEWS! not Satan :
I have had the pleasure of meeting both who arrived on my pages. One who is my neighbor. She is real person not a troll. The other is infatuated with Satan and a pharisee. She is a HOLY TROLL dontchaknow? She is afraid of Satan.
TSAD you have an article about alien abduction? That is totally against the Bible's teachings. I am tired of you TSAD. You are not better than the atheists. Don't you find it funny, everyone argues with you? Mayb ur the only right 1 lol. Leavemealone
Most of the churches DO act like N.That's why people hate Yeshua.Holytrolls so busy learning about Satan's power. Then they run around fanatical and call everyone Satan!One suicidal girl seeking help killed herself cause a HolyTroll called her Satan.
Roob. U pathetic little punk. WHO the hell do u think U R to "suggest" what Tsad should & should not do! And watch ur filthy mouth! I am NOT an atheist, never have been, never will be! Tsad knows me. U do not! 1 more lie from U & UR done here
Roob,really u are in way over ur head,that hub page is a spoof,if you were an adult in any way you'd recognize I would never buy into such a thought,u just keep on demonstrating your immaturity(fail) u can't even take ur own advice=lovelovelovelov.
Your right I am just an immature dummy who keeps failing against you... aw rats. Well ima go I got things to do!(: Bye bye you can comment again but I am done with u. Must be nice knowing it all, I mean ur a bible scholar genius. Ur never wrong.
I never said you were a dummy. See u can't even accept an honest criticism and grow from it you have to twist it to make it look like something it isn't. Immaturity is not = to stupid. I hope you reflect during your "time out"
Norine, you are in a CULT and you should step away from that cult. You need to be giving the Good News of Yeshua. Do you know it? The HS is not indwelling in you.You are LAW over God's mercy & Grace.You serve a different doctrine & Jesus. CUL
It is MRS. I have a husband do you? Probably not. lol You just keep digging your pit deeper.You are in a CULT and I don't deal with CULTS - God deals with them. I will say my Adieu forever time wasting Cultists. Happy foo's day foo.
Norine, what religious group/denomination/sect do you belong to? Really I am interested and you are so confident in your manner I am sure you are a good child of God and would have no reason not to proclaim your affiliation.
Eric: Everyone can "see" that one! Mrs/Mr/Ms whatever, still a LIAR (SATAN)! Affiliated w/JESUS (aka Father, Son, Holy Spirit + MANY other GLORIES)! Ever heard of that One (I Cor 12)? U said u like "cat fight?t" GOD HATES "..mischief(Prov 6:18 )
So let me get this straight...if a JW calls me Satan then it must be true? bahahaaa. Thanks for the giggle.You hide that you are a JW and that U have no husband. Why? I know why.You have LAW but no Holy Spirit anointing. None. Zip Zilch Zero Nada.
What is a JW.org? MRS "Hemlock," u r IGNORANT (Rm 11:25) of HIS WORD yet a prophet? Who/what "anointed" u? Why did u call JESUS "a pharisee" (Matt 16:23) for HE called Peter "SATAN?" Explain your prophecy!
Look at Foo-foo go! WOW! There there JW Law Nazi, just squat a little bit and use your little finger to pull that twisted wedgie out of your Religious butt crack. You will be fine. Just give it a good tug foo-foo. You can do it!
I HEAR YA!! I hear that DEMONIC "anointing" talking (".. just squat a little bit and use your little finger to pull that twisted wedgie out of your Religious butt crack.") U've proven u're SATAN! HOLY SPIRIT "REVEALS "ALL!" Just follow her guys???
Oh my! A JW is insulted by a wedgie joke and the word squat. Just like a pharisee cultist. Did you know that JW founder never knew Greek, Aramaic or Hebrew when he taught his CULT scripture. Something to think about after you get that wedgie out.
Word on the street is your a JW and you have no husband. Did you call him Satan too many times and he killed himself to get away from you and your Nazi pharisee torture? You also deny the trinity. UR glories is not revelation by the HS. UR messy.
"theocratic war strategy" is what she is using. JW's are allowed to lie and it is encouraged to push their cult fake unholy nonscriptural b.s. from a dude who was nothing but a con-cheat-and a liar. Are you using your "theocratic war strategy?
Norine you defy good thought. You are afraid and not of the Spirit. You are associated with a group but afraid to declare it. You do not honor God you honor yourself. Why are you so afraid, if God is in you, to state your affilliation? Go away
She will continue to lie because that is what they are taught to do. It really is called "theocratic war strategy". It is a sly way to promote a con man CULT. Her doctrine, Her Jesus & her fear of the Devil gives GOD NO GLORY! She has no GOOD NEW
You're BOTH "IGNORANT!" What GREATER Name to be affiliated with than "JESUS" (Phil 2:10)? Did HE not say "At the Name of JESUS every knee would bow?" You all are the one's "twisted!" U continue to show NOT "IN CHRIST!"
Norine you lie by omission you are not to be trusted. What has the devil done to you that you are too ashamed to state your affiliation. Is it the Devil. Are you satanic? You definitely are not normal. Why are you so fearful of man?
You''ve been "DECEIVED" by "religion" SATAN'S GREATEST DEVICE TO LOSE SOULS! Did Scripture say one MUST be affiliated with a "man-made" organization or JESUS? How stupid can 1 be & still breathe? Afraid of "man?" Ha! READ Matt 10:28!!! I FEAR
Is 5:20! READ IT!!! U guys r "IGNORANT" if you don't know the Name of JESUS! Who do u serve? Satan? How can 1 that SAY he loves GOD & not "reverence" HIS NAME? Jn 15:21 "..bcuz they know NOT him that sent me." READ Jn 15:18-27!!!! JESUS!!!
Norine when you are done following Satan, Give us Christians a note and we can help you. You are using scripture to deceive. Or you would be better off an atheist. But your path is one of destruction and should be shunned, How sad.
Eric:U r an "unbeliever!" One that DOES NOT reverence the NAME of JESUS, yet "Christian" is A LIAR! So who do u serve? U fulfill Scripture: Is 5:20 "Woe unto them that call evil good, & good evil..."Prov6:18 GOD HATES "..ft that b swift to run 2
You ain't good sister you are hiding something and that is evil. You are trapped by the devil and your word are to be scorned. The only conclusion as to your affiliation is the devil himself. You use scripture to deceive. stay away.
Why so interested in me? It's not about me! It's JESUS (WORD) u should be concerned with!!! U MUST "see" something special, gifted, anointed about me or u wouldn't continue! lol Not here for fame, but to give WORD to u "twisted" believers!!!
"Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, since as members of one body you were called to peace."(2col3:16). This is very disappointing! Why would you call yourselves Christians if you cant control your anger?(Jam 1:20) The devil is at work guys.
Let me be real clear. The truth is not anger-she is laughable and that woman is certainly not a sister of mine in Christ.Different doctrine and different Jesus.She is a con for Christ.That is why the wolves get in the sheepfold-people like you.
Definitely NOT "Hemlock!" Ur latest HUB AGAINST WORD also! Read Hebrews Chapters 7, 8, 9, 10! Heb 8:7 "For if the 1st Cov had been faultless, then should NO PLACE HAVE BEEN SOUGHT FOR THE 2ND!" GONE - False Prophet!!! Law: II Tim 3:16 - "CORR!"
You guys are going so far with theoretical assumptions and interpretations of the Bible to the point where it's getting ridiculos, when the whole thing is a far fetched book written by people in the middle east 2000 years ago. For your own's sake I hope you are not denying science as a whole because of your ''beliefs''...
Who invented "science?" Wasn't it "man" who was CREATED by the ALL KNOWING (Science still hasn't caught up w/GOD!) GOD? Provide a book with more "accurate" fulfilled prophecies as the Bible! If not, u can't prove ur "unbelief!" THANK YOU!
rooby, I see U really like the term "Grand Theory"...u use it a LOT. I also see "UR Mom writes & UR Dad makes money. & U want to do both!!" Wow, young man, you go! Amazing aspirations! 1st, learn 2 read, 2nd, learn 2 write~ as 4 the $$~ Get
Paula people only talk like that behind a computer screen. Your just a lame troll. Try talking like that to ppl on the street and maybe you'll get a touch of reality... or more than a touch. You win, ill leave, no one wants to be around you.
Alright TSAD well you have fun with her mocking you while you waste your time!(: Every pastor i've met has suggested not engaging in conversation with people who do not wish to open their heart to God or even know Him & that continually mock Him.
Yeah, I know what they, the pastors, mean, but lighten up, don't let it get under your skin. Sometimes a person is just having a bad day and picks you to dump their anger on, just shake the dust off your feet and move on.
She must be having a bad day everyday... I did let it get to me a tiny bit but i am moving on from conversation with her. I encourage others to as well, there are plenty of people who are willing to hear Gods words with an open heart.
Believers: See how Satan "finds a "tiny crack" to come to (even blvrs) & try to destroy? She's the "devil's advocate," but 1 must recognize. He does all of us that way (even me), but we MUST remember Eph 6:10-18!!! Thk GOD for "Grace & Merc
The deception is in the fact that so many people believe an actual creature of pure evil exists known commonly as a devil, Lucifer, Satan etc. Go ahead and blame all of your shortcomings, problems, evil and lack of compassion on a mythical creature because it sure is hard to take responsibility for your own actions and be accountable.
You can spot the devil through his arrogance and deceit. He takes a hold of you this way and tries to impress you. He can be charming and seem angelic at first, but this is all just a mask to trap you.
Awww Noreen.& U R sooo special. U continue to babble, rant, rave & bring attention to UR pathology. Well, thanks for the in depth self-disclosure. Take care of UR self. Keep UR big nose out of the business of others. Who the hell do U THINK U
Oh Roobie 2 shoes.we ARE sisters.No one told you? Yeah, she's the special, gifted child that Mom always liked best. We have 10 brothers too.A wonderful Fairy Tale like childhood. Noreen is the eldest & she took such good care of us! We LOVE her!
Only TRUTH (WORD) shows LOVE! However, you've found your OWN righteousness & think you're ABOVE God (Rm 1:25-32)! Lk 18:17 "..Whosoever shall not rec the kingdom of God (WORD) AS A LITTLE CHILD shall NOT enter!"
Is there one? We created that noun, "DEVILS". Amongst us are the devils and they are the rumour mongers and back stabbers and bad mouthers. You could include within the 'devils' group the type of people who get involved with only self gains in mind. are very selfish; are non obligatory and as communal service would be rated nil. Many more. The DEVILS are around us and within them. By the way we all have within us a devil each, controlled bu does succeed to rear its ugly side without any notice and gets us trapped in difficult scenarios. So is there one? There are many.
The battle field between good and evil is the mind. The work of the Devil is to deceived the mind. Its manifestation is shown in deceit, jealousy, covetousness, power to control, etc. Evil can be defeated only by doing good.
The logic of this world! Some of the smartest people in the world are the most evil. The world teaches to become civilized and become knowledgable. However the Bible teaches us the knowledge of the world is foolishness. People think they are so smart and science is right. But science doesn't agree on how the world started and can't prove it. After the enlightenment the world got more violent & still is.
Well, Chad, R. Dawkins can't do that debate ds time, suffered a stroke last Feb.11, 2016, Pain/suffering in life are not coincidence, it reminds us that we have to make changes in our life. Dawkins is Atheist/Agnostic/Evolutionist disciple of Darwin
Rodrigo amigo! I see U are well-informed about Dawkins~~ except that his name is RICHARD. "Chad" is his 3rd cousin on his mother's side, but there is no family love lost there.Mrs. Dawkins refused to serve turkey one Thanksgiving. They hate her.
Wow Paula read the conversation before being so rude! You are wrong! He was referring to TSAD as Chad. That is why he said "Well Chad, R. Dawkins... " Please think before you insult people. We were having a Christian conversation.(:
Some advesaries are very powerful with money, power and influences. They control almost everything including the medias. These media's are the powerful weapon. Media is able to control everything including the way people think.
The dilemma between good and evil is really more relevant to the realm of psychoanalysis than positing them to exterior manifestations. Such things as having "spirit" or a "soul" are profound subjects of the human psyche. Until such time as we can incorporate good and evil as aspects of the psyche, we remain in a state of infancy. Exteriorizing good or bad aspects of our inner-selves just seems to allay the fact that we are in fact control of our own destiny. There seems to be no end to exteriorizing elements of ourselves that seem incomprehensible, but, as a species, we owe it to ourselves to at least accept the possibility that our minds are sufficiently complex to absorb this dichotomy. We have to accept that everything we know and understand originated from the human mind -- all of its conceptions, perceptions, cognitions. If we cannot do that task, we'll forever remain primitive and prone toward projecting our fears, superstitions, hatreds upon others, and thus remain a global group of tribes.
TSAD -- There is nothing to prove or disprove. Everything we know and understand originates from the minds of men. Without our minds, we are nothing. We are capable of conceiving anything... and we do.
Very weak answer but nice dodge.So simplyyour opinion.There is proof your opinion is wrong on several counts,but since you have no respect for proof or evidence even to support your opinion I doubt you'd entertain anything to the contrary.
TSAD -- I'm not presenting my comment as a "dodge" or "opinion." This is a conclusion reached by a decade or more of psychoanalytic study, which is a science. You can disregard findings on this study. That's your prerogative.
A study? Really? Then why didn't you cite that as proof? Because the study does not have a conclusion that supports your "opinion" as fact,that's why. Another dodge or you simply don't understand the difference between fact and opinion.
rj..Of course~any human w/ a working brain knows the FACTS of yrs. of study & research by countless highly educated experts.Ur comment speaks volumes:"W/O our minds, we R nothing.We R capable of conceiving ANYTHING..& HE DOES.Save URself.Rise
I CAN if I choose to. I can do ANYTHING legal & harmless that I choose to. So can U and so DO U! You have a serious problem w/ someone having rights & freedoms? Move to Iran. They would love a HEAD like yours! UR sooooo Christ-like.
Ontopic,u should comment on what u actually know about cause anyone off the street can tell u that studies are a dimeadozen,new study findings contradict previously accepted study conclusions quite often.U have no idea what u r talkg about.
T...4 Pete's sake, make up UR mind! Am I "Queen" or "Ontopic?" It's OK really, I like both.I can't list my pet names 4 U ..U know,Taboo! If I don't know what I'm talking about how STUPID R U to keep talking to me? I'm happy 2 shut up if YOU do!!
I wouldn't presume to tell u to shut up and didn't. That's your tactic,wishing people to shut up like you just told me to.If you want to make a fool of yourself who am I to want you to shut u up?Not my style,so feel free to continue ranting.
LMAO! Ur Xtra funny today T-T!! Did UR poor widdle eyes hurt when you read the words, "Shut uP? Awww. HA! U not only PRESUME to B rude & nasty, U just ARE rude & nasty. Not UR style? Face it CHAD...U have no style. I'm FIRST 2 B done! Ur a W
The devil is kinda like the 'Bigfoot' though. You can always smell him and see enough evidence of him to KNOW he exists, so I think man plays more tricks on themselves than even the devil does. He is there, but do you really want to know that?
@Team: Why we should've "WAITED" (Acts 1:4for HOLY SPIRIT to HELP identify "THE WILES OF THE DEVIL" (Eph 6:10-18)! HS is JESUS (Jn 14:26 "..send in MY NAME..."! U don't thk HE has enough POWER (Acts 1:8) to HELP? BE READY TO FIGHT (Eph 6:10-18)!
SD,as usual,insightful(&boils down to what I said,we,our sinful nature,are our own worst enemies).Moral relativity is probably at the top of the list,the idea that everyone has their own truth open's the door wide for the devil to come in.
Definitely illusion/lying. Lying that he is a God, or God full stop. As 'God' that most Christians worship today could infact be the devil merely keeping people on Earth in blind worship. "A woman who fears the Lord is to be praised" Proverbs 31:30. He makes people worship him through fear, something that I see in the bible occasionally and the mentality most of the Christians I know have. Why does God have to make people fear him? Would a loving father want that? What about respect him instead? Fear is for a more life threatening scenario, such as running from a predator, or being cautious of evil near by. So deceit is perhaps the best weapon the Devil could use; for people who are scared are more easily deceived.
Anabella,before you start slinging scriptures&attributing them to the devil you should understand meaning.Godly fear is the result of believing in God!Compared2 usHe's so much more than we can fathom.Belief causes deep reverence&respect of Go
Words have meanings, your opinion when contrary to their meaning is a lie. Reality is not a continuum of opinions which would mean anything can mean anything based on anyone's opinion.That is absurd & not based in reality but pure lunacy.
True true. But I must argue that everyone has their own perception of things, so there is the continuum. And as for reality ... the way you see it in all its intricate ways, are also your own opinions. Just like how you label something as "absurd".
Let me get this straight, reality is simply"the way you see it in all its intricate ways, are also your own opinions." So a schizophrenic's delusions are reality? Everyone's reality is in their opinionated mind&no absolute reality exists?
The Hebrew word for fear is "yirah" (a noun) or "yarah" (verb) The word "yara" (fear) has layers of meanings and may translate to awe and respect. The Hebrews were an emotional people who used expressive language. Yara means "a flowing of the gut."
DO YOU SEE HOW SATAN HAS "DECEIVED" BOTH ANNA & TSAD? Didn't GOD say "WAIT" (Acts 1:4) for the HOLY SPIRIT who would "lead & guide into ALL truth" (Jn 14:26;16:13)? Then HOLY SPIRIT'S "OPINION" & NOT "YOURS!" How do you thk disciples o
Whoa! Norine..U must be bound & determined to B a Martyr Bcuz when Tsad sees you said "Satan has deceived him" he's NOT gonna like that...at all...in any way...No how. He knows more about the TRUE word than any cultist JW could ever! Just sayin..
I think the devil in your picture looks like a rather dapper chap. He's certainly a snappy dresser!
Also, looking at your very enchanting and attractive image, I think it might be worth following him if he'll teach me how to keep a desk as clear as that!
In fact, by opening this thread and leaving such a beautiful picture of the devil, I think you will draw many people to him. I'm sure of it. I think the devil loves you. You are doing great things for him, here.
What a cute answer, my Sweet Amanda. You have bi-passed all the mental stuff and made yourself quite charming. I hope that we learn from you that God loves us all, and that He wants us all to as childlike ...like you. Glory be!
Hello. One thing that is a Big weapon that he uses is what I explain here:
I encourage others, often, about this: Satan's #1 Lie to Human's is that, "God Will Not Forgive You or God Will Not Forgive You This Time." This is such a piece of crappy freakin' lying made perfect by the Devil himself, as the wording is so grand. Ugh! As Christians we are to know, eat & drink, as well as sleep & walk the following: Psalms 23rd Chapter, that clearly outlines in the last verse"Surely Goodness AND Mercy Shall Follow Me All The Days Of My Life: and I will Dwell In The House Of The Lord forever."
IF one "WAITED," (Acts 1:4), the HOLY SPIRIT would NOT allow DECEPTION into the "heart!" Why do u thk the disciples were ON ONE ACCORD in Scripture (Acts 1:14) AFTER "FIRST CHURCH" established? The HOLY SPIRIT (JESUS) doesn't CONTRADICT HIMSELF!!!
The greatest tool for devil is the "Ambition". Human is greedy. The more he gets, the more he wants. So if anyone offers me that he can give me thousands of bucks if i sign the deal for him, I would probably do that. Because the ambition will run me towards virtue. And then all the shit happens!
I believe the devil is the greatest marketer and knows our individual frailties and capitalizes upon our weaknesses. For some, it is greed, for others pride, for others, it some take deception. I like to think the deception would be his main weapon but sadly it appears hatred is the easiest to manipulate mankind.
All of these sins alienate us from God, we must always be in watch. Praying daily, reading our Bible, memorizing Bible verses is something each of us has the power do each day. Praying in a restaurant before a meal is just as important as reading the Bible to children. Developing family traditions that lay a foundation to look and trust in God is I feel the job of every parent, every adult. We must leave a legacy that showcases our faith. After all, we are called to preach the saving grace of Jesus Christ. He lives and if you know/believe in your heart, call upon the Lord and he will send his holy spirit to be with you.
Agreed, on the other hand, our Spiritual Dryness separates us from God, therefore allows Evil to influence our lives. Since the beginning of Creation, Evil(Serpent) has been man's greatest adversary, the ways of Evil is to supplant God's Will.
