It is sad to find out that Augustine and Aquinas had a better grasp of EVIL in the 4th and 13th century than the author of this article in the 21st century

satan is indeed a real dark spiritual force and a fallen angel which Lord God rejected , people will know the effect of fallen angels curses like smoking cigarettes , and drug and alcohol addictions , and even health problems and over weight are curse, which will go against a person will which can be hard to resist ... Then it is the demon spirit which will posses people and most people will have demons on their lives , corrupting their thoughts and corrupting their health and dividing their relationships ......See there is No mercy from God for satan and the fallen angels and the demon spirit of the flesh of man and animals .......... So if people do not believe in demons than it is demons who given them that idea ...... Jesus has a plan were believer in Christ can be free or greatly reduced demon influence in Jesus provisions for His people who have faith in His plan ...

Only doctors of philosophy can say, there is no Satan. Every one that believes the bible, who do not reject the Lord and His word, read in Rev12:9 Satan ( the Devil) was cast out into the earth and His angels with him
Rev20:2 and bound him (Satan) a thousand years.
Job 1:6 the sons of God came before God and Satan was among them.
To deny he is a spiritual being (fallen angel, cherub) is to deny scripture. You can only be cast out, bound, or meet someone, if Satan is a real being, and that is the truth.

Correct.


Satan, Lucifer, serves a single purpose, to force the Father's creation, man, to exercise his free will, to choose the Father or to accept the world.

Lucifer is destroyed in the end, along with all those who have followed him, the death of death, you'll read that in scripture also.

There is a reason why most philosophers get it and why most average folks don't get it.

The amazing thing is that the message of the entire Bible does not change at all if you merely make Satan the symbol of evil. There is no need to re-write the Bible or having to adopt a new form of Christianity.

The phrase Satan ( the Devil) was cast out into the earth and His angels with him
Rev20:2 and bound him (Satan) a thousand years.
is taken as allegory and the message remains INTACT.

Why must Christians run away from philosophy? Do you guys even know what philosophy means?

1. The rational investigation of the truths and principles of being, knowledge, or conduct.


It simply means to seek wisdom.


Why do you think some Muslim religious fanatics have attacked the US? They attack because they believe the US is under Satanic influence. Do we think these folks are rational?

Satan is a very real danger to each and every person on earth. The Bible warns about him explicitly in many places. Anyone not heeding the warnings is a fool.

1Pe 5:8 Be self-controlled and alert. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour.

Julian: America is under Satanic influence. Look at the crime, the immorality, abortion, murder, drugs. Satan is having a field day. But the Muslims fail to see that they also are under Satanic influence since their answer to our problems is idolatry and murder.

Philosophers are have no answer to anything. To them, life is meaningless. Just more blind guides, leading others into their pit.

A simile is a figure of speech that directly compares two things through some connective word, usually being "like", "as", "than", or a verb such as "resembles".[1] A simile differs from a metaphor in that the latter compares two unlike things by saying that the one thing is the other thing.


For example:

"Curley was flopping like a fish on a line" Does not mean he is a fish. It is just a bit of poetry.

"Her eyes twinkled like stars"
"Gareth is like a lion when he gets angry".
"And the executioner went off like an arrow"


Folks, the key is not to take the words literally.

Those of us who study history and current events see clearly.
