It would probably help - if you disregarded all the mythology that you have swallowed.

I have. I have no preconceived theology. I read to learn, not confirm.

As usual, you are incapable of providing any proof for your opinions. Your statement above does absolutely nothing to disprove the existence of the angelic spirit beings of which the Bible speaks.

I do not belong to mainstream Christianity, so we will always disagree. And, it is highly doubtful that anyone would ever have an impact on what you have swallowed, hook, line and sinker. You will believe, what you believe; until you no longer believe it!

And, do you see an underworld of pain and suffering or that of an eternal hellhole of torment?

Isn't that located in the basement of the Amazon distribution center? Apparently the "devil" will have to soon face the opposition of a union leader.

The idea of a burning Hell is not Biblical, it is the result of the Greek Philosophic influence on beliefs from teachings like Plato's.


Anyone reading the Bible to see what it actuslly says instead of tr tying to prove a man made doctrine, can see that.

People should be able to see that which is contrived from mythologies. Especially, those belonging to a particular religious or cultural tradition. However, the Greeks expounded on them, making them more palatable. But why people are so gullible and have allowed their brains to be hijacked is beyond me.

Try actually reading the Bible.
This isnít in my Jewish Bible...The only place that Satan in personified is in Job and he is portrayed as actually working for G-d, not against Him...
