How can anyone tell a difference between voice of God (or holy spirit for that matter) and voice of the devil? I am pretty sure lot's of Muslims have voices in their head, too.

James 3 verse17 says

The wisdom that comes from heaven is first of all pure,peace loving,considerate,submissive, full of mercy and good fruit,impartial and sincere.

Python87 i use this as a rule of thumb in discerning that which is of God.

Those who believe so vehemently in Eternal torture and annihilation does any of the above verse fit into your wisdom that makes you so sold out to it ?.

What do you think? The Bible says "Depart from me, you who are cursed, into the eternal fire prepared for the devil and his angels."

Satan knows there is a place prepred for him and his angels, and he knows that those who reject The Son Of God will end up there too, and his mission is to deceive as many as possible so that they would end up there. So, it makes perfect sense that he tries to deceive people into thinking that such place does not even exist.

If I where a Satan (or evil / bored god) that's exactly what I might tell you.

That there is no hell, because everyone is going to heaven no matter what, and that if there was a hell then that would make God evil.

That's the option... but since so few believe in that, that's not very efficient. It would work better to just find some guy (Jesus) and trick him into thinking he is son of God. That's how you get more people!

Yes, that is another one of his favorite lies: that there is no God.

Or that true God is Allah. The point is, there is simply no good reason to believe higher being that can do anything.
