    Satan was tempted by "jealousy", which is one of the seven deadly sins, I  believe.

    well, all these things being said, here at page 19, Happy Hanukkah!

    Mon le fin du fin:

    Kline wouldn't be the only one to say something relatively similar to that idea. Many --myself included-- from this "episteme" would consider any variation of the word/term 'Sons of' to mean human, not angelic. And yes, the Judaic use of ba`al formatting for 'N/names of' and 'S/sons' of is identical...

    In Hebrew, Baal, Bet, Ayin, Lamed  was a word used for husband, master, owner. It was used as Lord when speaking of God.
    When it was used by others to describe their false gods, the Hebrews stopped using it.

    Jews never used Baal for names of or sons of.

    Sons is בני Bet, Nun, Yod (Bn'y)
    Any place in Hebrew scripture where it mentions the Bn'y Elohyim, it is referring to angels, not people.

    Maybe in Martian language, but not in Hebrew.

    The Bn'y Elohyim is the choir of angels under the Archangel Michael
    dealing with the 8th Sefira, Hod on the Tree of Life.

    I love how people pretend to be fluent in Hebrew and don't know the least thing about it.

      So the S/sons of Elephants are considered the S/sons of G-d???
      ( In India, maybe... ). Same ba`al, different channel.
      lol
      Indeed, have mercy!
      Why would Creator title angelic messengers as sons who are not made in his image or likeness?

      And if an elephant saw a crowd of women, would it say: "Daughters of Elephants!???

        If it said Bn'y Pyl (Sons of Elephant)  it would be sons of elephant, but it says Bn'y Elohyim, Sons of God.

        Angels are more like God than us. Man was made only a little lower.

        Your arguments mean nothing, your last comment shows how ridiculous they are. I am beginning to think you and C are the same person.

          Twenty One Daysposted 13 years agoin reply to this

          So you are saying angels are greater than man and if you saw one you would worship it as well? That is what the Hebrews did before, yes? How many times did the angels tell them not to kneel before them or bow to them for they were the messengers of Creator and servants to Testimony of Grace?

          As I said, the influence of baal is riddled throughout Judaism and its history, carried on now by the post Y`shua "believers" which includes a non existent entity called Lucifer and Satan.

          edit: my comment was meant to be ridiculous in response to extensive name calling or evoking names that have no power, no purpose accept to hinder people.

          Creator never once scribed a  single name to himself. Yet, even in the face of Moses, the Hebrews did, not once but twice. They fashioned mental and physical idols they injected from various cults of baal...

          The D/daughters of Elephant are equal to the S/sons of G-d...

                    God took away the snake's arms and legs and to force him to travel on his belly, for the rest of his life.

                    It could have been worst.
                    God could have turned someone into a jelly fish take away their brain and back bone and force him to live immortal for 650 million years.

            Perception is everything. Consider the possibility here that no one of the satan supporters understands the outside the box possibility that Satan merely plays bad cop to Jesus's good cop. Both are actually working to the same end. Jesus fishes from one end, while Satan works the net at the other end. Then one might have to consider what is meant by me when I say "fishes" and what I might mean by the word "net". www smile

    arbposted 13 years ago

    It is interesting that many begin with the presupposition that God does or does not exist, therefore, not surprising that conclusions always seem to support the original premise. Philosophically speaking, we are created with the potential to do good or to not do good. Creating potential does not create the consequence of potential.
    It isn't that God created evil, it is that God created good as well as the potential to (not do good) and that is refered to as evil. The opposite of good is not evil, the opposite of good is "non good" and we refer to it as evil. The creation of free will inherently, pre supposes that opposites exist and that we are therefore created with the "potential" to exercise good or to not exercise good. To not exercise good is to exercise the opposite. If opposites exist (mandatory for free will to exist) then Satan existed with the potential to choose good or to not choose good. Eliminate free will and concurently you eliminate temptation, therefore, temptation is simply part and parcel of free will. It isn't a thing created, it is the natural residue of a thing created. Evil does not exist in the perpetual exercise of good. It can only exist in the absence of good. What does exist is the free will potential to choose (not to do good). Evil does not exist apart from the free exercise of man to choose it. It is born of man for only man has the capacity to choose non good.   
    If good was created and free will was extended then inherent in that creation is the (potential) to not do good (evil). The creation of one and the choice (to do or not to do) is not the creation of the other. The existance of evil is born in the refusal to do good. God does not refuse to do good, therefore does not create evil.

    By the way, The opposite of God (logic 101) is "Non God" To not believe in God is to believe in Non God. The object of our faith is then God or Non God. Ironicaly, we all live by faith, it is only the object of our faith that seperates us.We have more in common than we think! Perhaps a good reason to promote a mutual respect in these discusions

      In Hebrew, the word translated as "good" is tov and should have been translated "functional". The word translated as "evil" is "ra" which means dysfunctional.

      So you aren't far off, things were functional but had the ability to become dysfunctional. The price that comes with free will.

    Every opinion is biased otherwise it would not be (opinion). The question isn't whether I am biased but whether my bias cause the conclusion or did the conclusion cause the bias? To merely state that my opinion is biased neither supports or rejects the hypothesis and it seems to me, nullifies the intent of your original post (to seek opinion). To seek opinion is to engaged the biases which accompany those opinions, originating with your opinion and your original bias. We can all presume that each post is biased, but what validates the bias is the question of interest, is it not?

    I did not presume bias from the question, but from Randy's comments following the question. I could also presume bias in his challenge to all believers to answer the question and the reccomendation that we preface the attempt with prayer. As for answering the question,( I did ) in the origional post. It was met with the observation that I was bias. I have agreed and simply pointed out that all opinion is biased.

      Sure, we all have biases which may reflect on our own particular viewpoints.  My challenge, as you presume it to be, is to use either one's preferred biblical scriptures, ancient texts of other religions, or any other means you may be able to offer to support your opinion of the answer to my question.

      Naturally, those indoctrinated into a particular religion or cult will be biased more than those of an open mind to all of the other possible answers. 

      Despite your assumption, I did not recommend prayer for those who are believers, only that divine guidance may be necessary for some to reach an acceptable (in their minds) answer.

        Satan was tempted by all those who refused what God is saying. But, again, the evidence is there that his real purpose has been hidden from us. Good cop, Bad cop. Both are out to get you, and taking opposite tactics to acheive that end. They both want to get you, and put you in the same situation. Two roads which lead to Rome. Resistance is futile.

    Good ouestions  my friend. The  answer  to  those questions  is  as  you  can  see  in  the  world  today  evil is  present.  Evil  has  been in  existence  since  the fall  of  mankind  before  the  the  fall evil was  not  present on earth  until  man  disobeyed God and  ate  or the  forbidden tree  that  God told them  not  to  eat of , but adam  and  eve  made  the choice to  disobey  God and because of  that sin  was  passed  down on all mankind. Satan had lied  to  Eve  and  said they would be just  like  gods knowing good  and evil.  Before  they ate of  the  fruit  they  had  no  knowledge  of evil.

        Thought I covered that. Let's review. Man conceived of evil. Which does not speak to the reality of the concept. Since evil was part of that quantum leap that happened in the proverbial garden, then evil was the negative to the positive. -knowledge vs +positive knowledge. It is also very clearly written. "God is the author of all things, good or evil. All inspiration comes from God." Get it? Got it? Good!

                Who created the name and concept of Satan?

                The concept of an evil force in the universe separate from God is foreign to the Jewish religion. It is clearly expressed in the Torah as well as in First Samuel that there is only God, He does good as well bad acts. So where did the concept and the name Satan first appear and in what books?

                This is how it came about:

                Piso saw himself as a new lawgiver and philosopher after all he thought he was the greatest writer in the world. He just created the beginnings of his new religion, Christianity, which he hoped to would give new moral laws to the Roman Empire.  Satan motivate fear stronger than love in power over the people. Satan Roman concept motivate fear stronger than love, in power over the people

                God would want us to choose love, other prefer hate, Satan needs to be loved to death as love concurs all.I say power to the people and God and save Satan. People want to hate snakes, troll, rats, bats and stump on any bug. I think everyone and everything is beautiful in its own way. Satan is part of nature, the Universe is part of nature, so love all, or separate things and hate creature and things for the rest of your life

                See randy the snake is not so bad; he and all of us are beautiful in our own way.

    God gives all of his creations "free will". Satan, the fallen angel chose to be jealous of God and worked at bringing others to his side. He was thrown out of heaven along with his other followers. GOD CREATED this angel but this angel came up with his OWN Thoughts. This is not new and of course has to be believed with faith because ultimately, man was not present to witness this event.

    Hey Randy, been away but wanted to respond to a couple of comments.
    1)In your original post "Now is the time for all you enlightened believers to show you know what you are talking about! You might have to pray about this one!" The comment seems to support my assertation that my assumption was correct-not incorrect. I have no problem with the statement, only the observation that it too revealed a bias! As previously stated, I have no problem with biases, but, foreknowledge of bias does illuminate the context of our opinion.
    2)perfection implies immunity from temptation? Inherent in the statement "Satan was created perfect" does not imply immunity from future imperfection. You assume that because something is created perfect it must stay perfect. This discounts the possibility of free will, which inherently houses the possibility of choosing to act imperfectly.
    3)Your invitation to use ones prefered biblical scripture seems an exercise in futility if you have already dismissed it as an unreliable source of evidence. If you don't believe in its authenticity then my reference to any part of it is dismissed prior to my reference! That is as it should be given that it is not an agreed upon source of evidence. I am left, therefore to argue from a purely philosophical point of view.
    4)This brings us back to the original question! Who tempted satan? The question begs the assumption that satan was tempted by someone and that premise remains unestablished. There is no evidence that satan was tempted by anyone other than himself. I believe your assumption that he must have been tempted by someone else is dirivitive of your privious assumption that "perfection implies perpetual immunity from imperfection".
    It does not imply such conclusion. As far as both good and evil being created, I think this too is based in an invalid assumption. Because it exist does not imply that it was created by God. If He created good and we choose to not do good, then we ourselves give birth to evil. We possess the ability to not murder, but if I choose to murder, the act was not created by God. It was created in my refusal to act as God created me to act, thus I, myself am capable of creating out of what God has created.
    5)In conclusion. I am not an expert in biblical translation or authenticity anymore than I am an expert in astro physics. I am, therefore left with the remedy of reading the works of those who are and consequently can only rely to some degree upon thier expertise. Having said that, my understanding of scripture (some 38 years) is the by product of scholars who have answered my questions adequately over the course of my years and have done so with greater clarity and precision than alternative theorist. My point being, is that the knowledge I lack far exceeds the knowledge I possess. I must conclude in light of this reality, that because we fail the answer, does not mean that it does not exist, it sometimes means we do not yet see it and if we do not see it, perhaps another does. That reality commands we respect the attempts to answer such questions. Perhaps someone has answered the question and we just can't (as yet) see it. I am encouraged by so many who have taken the time to think and the courage to post where everyone can see. Thanks for the stimulation.

      Your thoughts on the question are welcome, whether i agree with them or not.  But we seems to disagree with the meaning of the word "perfection."

      I take the words meaning as "without flaws" or, lacking the ability to be wrong.  Unless you are suggesting perfection is not truly descriptive of the act of being perfect, this only creates more confusion.

      No problem with you using the bible to support its own statements.  It is the only thing supporting its own veracity.


      Whether I believe it is true or not plays no part in the question for this thread.

        arbposted 13 years agoin reply to this

        Randy! I don't think we disagree with the meaning of the word perfection, however, I do think we disagree with how the word is used in your premise. If I purchase something that is originally perfect (without flaw) why would I assumne that it would remain perfect? If it does not have the capability of becomming imperfect how could I define it as perfect to begin with. Perfection only exist because imperfection exist. The definition of Cold only exist because hot exist. We can not define cold apart from its relative proximity to hot.  Satan may have been created perfect, but only if imperfection co existed. If imperfection co existed then the possibility of choosing imperfection was his without any third party intervention. A new born child may be without moral flaw, but, given time and his own device he most assuredly will morally transgress.

          But your god was the one who said Satan was perfect!  Not my words, simply the words written in your book.  You can say god doesn't really mean what he says if you like, but then, this causes even more confusion if the rest of god's words may be taken with a grain of salt, or that we are not to take his words literally.  You cannot have it both ways!

          Comparing a child with an angel does not work.  Satan was not a child, and neither was god.

            arbposted 13 years agoin reply to this

            I never refuted that God made such a comment. Whether He did or not ,isn't the question. Satan being created perfect has no bearing on whether He then had access to imperfection. Can not have access to one without the other.  Why would I say God doesn't mean what He says. Your assumption is (Satan was created perfect, therefore he could not fall from that state) an invalid premise. Again, though created perfect, he was not imprisoned by  perfection. Had he been imprisoned by perfection his state of perfection would cease to be perfect. He had both the freedom and the right to choose otherwise and to then reap the consequences of that choice. All things created are at first flawless-they are not created flawless into perpetuity. Nothing created remains the same. They decay, they age, they change from perfection to imperfection.

              Okay, then it therefore means temptation came from god. Without temptation, Satan retains perfection.  God created good, there is no good unless there is bad to compare it to.  Without bad, there is no temptation to do bad for the perfect angel to succumb to.


              God knows everything.  He knew the evil he created would influence his perfect creation.  If you do not accept that god knows everything, then you must admit he may be wrong about lots of things. 

              If perfection is so easily destroyed, then there is no such thing as Satan being perfect.  Perfection means perfect everything, and this includes an ideal defense against evil. Unless of course, evil is stronger than the perfect angels god created.

    If God is the Creator of all things, then He gets to plan what He wants everything He creates to do. He must have created angels, and ordered that some would rebel against Him.
    We don't have the answers to all the "whys" but we sure do have a lot right there in the Bible. And what's more, He uses His Spirit to help us understand more and more of it.
    Then we come to find out that He "ordained" it all for His glory, and to show all the aspects of His being:

    Maybe the introduction of man into the world was his temptation, but who knows the nature of the angels. Good question.

    All angels have free moral agency or freedom of choice and this
    is necessary for one to develop godly character, the ability
    to distinguish between right and wrong and to always choose the
    right against self temptation and all other influences. Contrary
    to what some believe angels are not robots or automatons. God
    creates time and circumstance and He did this for the angels so
    they could learn,grow and develop holy righteous character. No
    one tempted Lucifer his intellectual vanity seized him and he
    made himself and enemy of God because he wanted to be God. Before mankind was ever created there was a great war in heaven, God's realm and apparently 1/3 of the angels sided with Lucifer and fought against there very maker, God. Those angels lost and were cast to earth and no longer have access to God. The rebellion of the angels cased sin to enter into this world and the character of those rebellious angels permanently changed and they became demons. It is the character of the fallen angels that changed not their appearance as many assume. They actually look the same as when they were created but they can change their appearance when they make themselves visible
    to humans so different people see different forms of the same
    thing! The self is at the root cause of Lucifer's fall!

    hey randy, sorry it took me 4 yrs or however long to come across this hope ur still around or found sum insight to ur search for the truth, i tried to speed read thru everything and a lot of the responses jus seem word for word, taken directly from texts that we truly cannot confirm , have been distorted over the centuries, or people jus dodging the question entirely per lack of understanding or deeper awareness, im gonna go wit the limited knowledge, understanding, enlightenments, brain capacity n personal experience in seeking da truth and dis jus kinda dawned on me spur of the moment cuz i nvr really pondered too much about it, i cant speak for everybody but as humans we jus tend to tk in wut were force fed n influenced by and to accept or grasp the concepts that are easier to swallow or sumwut rationalize....doing my best from the most possible logical standpoint if we were created in the image of god, n the greatest commandment was originally to luv god with all our mind body n soul, or however it goes, u gt the idea, from this we can reason why god is noted as a sumwut jealous god, bare wit me im  trying nt to leave anything out...we all kno exactly how dat feels to long for someones attention, to desire, kno or be as close to someone each n every way possible we frown upon rejection but at the same time we want people to accept us or like us without having to force it upon someone otherwise its nt real or genuine love, care, or affection hence free will...im gettin there i think...alright angels were nt created to have free will idk where everyones gettin dat idea from, they were heavenly beings created for the sole purpose of glorifying or doing gods appointed will, most notably satan or wutever his real name is could be bob who knows...yes supposedly created perfect maybe too perfect, a perfectionist if u will we all kno the type all too well...one of his most important purposes or tasks as head was supervision over da garden...paradise pretty much it had everything any dude could ever ask for, gold, jewels, neverending free food n water, even a hot chick, adam n eve livin it up havin a good ol time, keep in mind dat they had a childlike innocence until sumhow sumway, dat innocence was lost, someone or something opened dat part of their brain or consciousness via the "tree/fruit" n made them feel guilty about the lil pleasures in life that they were created to express n enjoy who doesnt secretly like feelin free n walkin around nude every chance they get kids babies do it all the time, they luv it simple joy no shame...several factors at play here, god saw man was alone, woman created, boom instant happiness n infinite possibilities, immortality, man gets caught up in da blissful moment nothing can go wrong, wrong...this causes a lil tension n again jealousy cuz man is no longer focused on god and completely oblivious to his surroundings happens all da time wen we fall hard or luv sik, all we wanna do is spend time wit dat one person n no one else, ignoring or slacking on all other responsibilities n everyone else including god himself, taken everything dats been given to us for granted pretty much and its only wen we dont kno wut we gt or how good we gt it til its truly gone sad but tru, in da meantime satans jus bustin his azz havin to put in all work no play, n this perfect being knows he was created way more advanced in every which way yet hes pretty much stuk in paradise as a third wheel as wut he most likely feels as a slave to a couple primitive minds, thus satan taking it upon himself to be equal or higher than god, thought he knew gods intentions n since man was supposedly made in gods image hes thinkin wut a bunch of dodo birds running around naked in da woods, its gotta be a joke or mistake, how could he possibly be proud of his creation and favored more than heavenly beings dedicated to serve, satan ridicules n mocks gods taste or choice n pondering all the ways mankind should have been created or be improved, meanwhile satan desires to experience the same free will, (y sum people live vicariously thru others) wuts da purpose if theyre jus taking it all for granted and not acknowledging their creator or truly being appreciative, satan created as a perfectionist to  kno good n evil emotions or intentions, right from wrong...saw this as an insult to his intelligience and prolly thought he deserved better treatment being the highest in command, this was his appointed territory and wanted to control the situation, all the negative emotions we can possibly think of surfaced...mankind made him look weak and irresponsible, and to a certain extent it wasnt his fault they had free will to do wutever they pleased, without satans consent or approval, while he got fustrated cleaning up the mess and taking the heat, almost like a pet, man was considered disgraceful, clumsy creatures that needed sum type of order or correction, their life was meaningless without purpose, and this was his opportunity or moment to practice the power, discipline, influence, knowledge he was rightfully given at dat moment seeing it as no wrong himself with it being his duty and an extension of god himself he considered it easily justifiable and with due cause, he was surely covinced he had authority over sum of the angels to enforce law either out of fear, or to find a way to manipulate free will with persuasion or coercion, material possessions, etc...man was easily reprogrammed to do wutever, for sum fallen angels im sure it was addictive, quite the entertainment and they felt empowered, however nonetheless it was still indirect disobedience, no such command was given from god and henceforth rebellion whether intentional or unintentional, theres forces of corruption at work beyond our understanding, mother nature/weather is a prime example but it is during these most volatile destructive moments where weakness or imperfection becomes perfect, diamonds n gold the most valued materials on earth created from utter chaos, this is the true power of god and his existence, that nothing is impossible, u can turn absolutely nothing into something, darkness and light can essentially balance each other out, and anything negative can have a completely positive outcome if one truly believes, focuses, and works the odds in their favor, this is the same power that has been freely given to us as we still are created in gods image, we have the inert ability to defy laws of physics and gravity but it has been suppressed as a result of our corruption, lack of faith, separation from god, inability to use our brain at full capacity due to our defective dna...our talents and gifts, our ability to create n destroy, adapt, overcome, the human spirit that nvr seems to die or fade, life still goes on...all these things in all actuality set us above a higher standard n even earned us positions as kings in heaven and having authority to govern over and command angels to guide and protect mere mortals, im strongly convinced this notion did not sit well at all with the fallen ones, naturally refused to be submissive and will most likely spend the rest of eternity utterly bewildered in disbelief and ultimately it has been a desperate attempt to modify our own behavior, thinking patterns for self destruction in order to comprehend why god would still favor such an underdog jus like people tend to root for in todays society in the likeness of god...the least truly are considered the greatest, higher in value, substance n self worth, tried n true quality at its rawest form, no pain no gain...sorry gt a lil carried away but this is my honest n most humble opinion, to each their own best wishes on everyones life journey for we all play an important role of sumn greater beyond ourselves and wut we can currently sense, interpret, or process and it def goes wayy beyond any known history, math, science, religion, political viewpoint, philosophy, dream or man made idea period...
