    People always ask, does God Exist?
    Is it not amusing that people do not believe that God exists but believe in the concept of good and evil, evil ultimately showing that satan exists.

    Why is there so much controversy on this topic

    If Satan exists there is a Save Satan fan club going on.

    What puzzles me is that Satan and Santa are very similar.  Yet one is an evil person and the other one gives presents to rich kids.

    I don't have a theory about the Tooth Fairy.

      very good observation, could all these be satans ploy to deceive people on earth and get more people on his side?

        I'm not sure.  Once you add in the Easter Bunny it's complicated.

    The Hebrew language and others of that part of the world was very different from western English.  They used a lot of imagery and metaphor as part of their everyday written communication.  Thus when modern man tries to decipher the Bible based on our "cut and dry" concept of language it is up to individual interpretation.  This is among the basic reasons for discontent and various denominations.

    Yes, satan exists.  Though he has not and cannot ever have a body of flesh and bone his influence is no less potent.  He is the fallen one who sought the glory of God in the council of Heaven.  Because of his rebellion he was cast out along with those who followed.  It is they who will never have a body and will never be granted to progress.  They now serve to influence and tempt us into wrong paths and a mindset of a godless society.

      Ok... so at the end of the day, it is still an individual choice to do or not to do as they are influenced or tempted right?

        Personal agency of choice is what the entire universe is based on.  All of us in the flesh chose the correct side before we were even born into this world.  That's why we are able to progress.  It is our individual choices here in life that forms who we are and will be.  That's what filter people into "good" and "not so good" camps.

    lol Considering the size of this solar system and then galaxy, satan must be the jobless entity in this universe to come to the only planet where life exist. wink

        really ? how do you know that ?

        JFYI, there are chances of planets with size 10x than Jupiter. So do you understand if life exists on such planets then your assumption of satan don't hold true for them because all son of gods/prophets on this planet are ants on these other planets. Give me one good reason why satan should waste his time playing with ants ? You mean satan wants to create termite problem for god ? and that's why he deceives humans ?

          Sorry, forgive my ignorance but i'm not sure what you're getting at.  Satan is miserable.  He knows he cannot progress because of his own choices.  Remember the old saying, "misery loves company."  Because of his animosity toward the Father and the Christ (which position he wanted) his chosen purpose is to sway man from God and personal progression.  This puts him in a "catch 22."  Because in the end a spirit clothed in flesh will have dominion over that which is not.  Therefore, even the unrighteous who have bore mortality will ultimately have power over satan in that realm.

          Yes, the exact process is happening all across the universe.

    Statement loaded with Generalization.

    There is nothing like good or evil. What's good for you is evil for me. Take communists or sarah palin for example, they're evil to me but not for the rest of the world. It's all about perspective.

    Or more like you don't want to get it ? I'm showing you the possibility of species much bigger than us such that concept of your prophets and satan is non-existent considering life of those species.



    Far fetched. You didn't even managed to get the complexity of this universe and you write as if you know satan's life in other planets ? other species more intellect than us or less than us ? Earth's mythic stories don't work outside ya know.
