I was basically agreeing with you, but I can post it to him as well.

Satan only wins if everyone rejects God and His son and that ain't gonna happen. Satan lost when Jesus proved faithful. How many are faithful is not an issue.

Those claiming he knows all things, Omniscient, are actually limiting his power.


He has a couple of limits.


1. He cannot die
2. He cannot lie
If god lied to you would you know?

It is a painful lesson in contrasts so that we can become like God knowing both good and evil. Some people learn more easily than others to avoid evil and follow goodness, mercy, and walk in love. Not saying I'm a quick learner, I've had many good lessons taught to me when I chose the evil part.

Are dead babies in heaven right now having never learned the lesson about good and evil?

This is a thread subject that is really very interesting to me, and I think it should be a great discussion, so lets avoid super long copy/pasting, and lets keep it a christian viewpoint,(if other denominations would like to discuss the same thing on their forum, thats great, but this is a christian board).


OK...


In another thread that this came up, I likened it to this scenario...you are married and have a family, some other guy is jealous of what you have and attempts to take your spot, rebels against you, etc. so you overcome him and cast him out of your life...BUT then you ALLOW him to still have access to and be able to influence your wife and kids...???


What kind of sense is that?
Christians only?...Everyody has a right to post here...
