Why Should You Still Call Satan Evil If He Punishes The Bad People? by KingAzubuike(f): 10:16pm On May 23
We all die. The good go to heaven and the bad go to hell. Hell is a place of suffering and torment headed by Satan. He oversees things there, it's his own version of heaven. His job is to punish those who were evil and bad while on Earth. Why do Christian's still see him as an evil being when he punishes the evil?

1) You should understand that he influenced those people and anyone to do evil.
2) He is not necessarily punishing them, his time of punishment is yet to come while anyone who dies in sin now has start his or her own IT in hell. So satan is just in the midst of the fire but not burn. He is not feeling the heat yet. Until-his time comes.

I've got another question tho...
Why would an all knowing God create Satan in the first place since he already knows the outcome? If you say he didn't know that Lucifer would turn against him, then God is not omniscient. If you agreee that he knew, then it was his plan all along.
Another one.
Why would an all knowing god create the tree of life and leave it there, since he knows that it could hinder his initial plans for Adam and Eve? undecided

Technically, it is not as simple as you would think it to be. Not everyone who clings to Christ holds that assumption as it has next to no basis as far as the Bible is concerned.

Zechariah 3 vs 1-4(ERV)
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
1 The angel showed me Joshua the high priest, standing in front of the angel of the Lord and Satan was standing by Joshua’s right side. Satan was there to accuse Joshua of doing wrong.
2 Then the angel of the Lord said, “The Lord says that you are wrong, and he will continue to correct you! The Lord has chosen Jerusalem to be his special city. He saved that city—it was like a burning stick pulled from the fire.”

3 Joshua was wearing a dirty robe as he stood in front of the angel.
4 Then the angel said to the other angels standing near him, “Take those dirty clothes off Joshua.” Then the angel spoke to Joshua. He said, “Now, I have taken away your guilt, and I am giving you a new change of clothes.”
In his letter to the churches, Jude warned Christians from disrespecting heavenly beings such as Satan reminding them that even the angels would not directly rebuke Satan.

Jude 1 vs 9(KJV)
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
9 Yet Michael the archangel, when contending with the devil he disputed about the body of Moses, durst not bring against him a railing accusation, but said, The Lord rebuke thee.
That said, probably best to lay blame where the blame lies.

Romans 5 vs 12 -14
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
12 Sin came into the world because of what one man did. And with sin came death. So this is why all people must die—because all people have sinned.
13 Sin was in the world before the Law of Moses. But God does not consider people guilty of sin if there is no law.
14 But from the time of Adam to the time of Moses, everyone had to die. Adam died because he sinned by not obeying God’s command. But even those who did not sin that same way had to die.
God did say the heart of man is extremely wicked. He ain't pinning man's sins on Satan. So why do we?

Jeremiah 17 vs 9-10(KJV)
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
9 The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it?
10 I the Lord search the heart, I try the reins, even to give every man according to his ways, and according to the fruit of his doings.
In the Bible God, Man is the one to blame, not Satan.

satan actually walks around in a fire without burning? this is super hero stuff!

what bugs me is God could strip him off his powers this minute, so he starts burning right away and leave humanity in peace, but he wouldn't until satan's dragged majority of humanity to hell.

i mean if i empowered someone and that someone harm my kids with the powers i gave him, i wouldn't wait until most of my kids are dead before damning that someone after collecting the powers back.

Well I know where your loyalty lies, although it is futile making someone that has make up his mind to reason. The devil do not create hell, it was created for him and his angel alone, but those that are deceived by him to do evil will join him there.

I know he didn't create hell. But he's in charge of the torments and suffering there. And ask yourself, does it sound intelligent for a so called Satan to deceive and lure people to to do his bidding while on Earth and after they die, still go ahead to punish them in hell for doing his bidding? You people are honestly confused.

YOU ARE CREATED TO JUST SERVE HIM UNTIL YOU DIE. DON'T EVEN TRY TO SEEK KNOWLEDGE OR QUESTION THE THINGS YOUR RELIGIOUS GROUP TAUGHT YOU TO DO.. JUST KEEP DOING THEM NO MATTER WHAT. HE IS THE ULTIMATE AND BEGINNING AND END. THAT'S ALL. LET'S ALL JUST BE SHEEP.

His plan for Adam actually was to send him to earth, but he lied to Adam and made him think he would be in paradise grin

Secondly, he purposely created Satan so that Satan may lure human to disbelief. He did this because he enjoys roasting people in fire grin

But he is a very loving God. What an irony

So bitterness and depression has over shadowed your sense of reasoning that the devil in hell and his angels are there to be tormented as a reward for their disobedience.

They would tell you that God is unquestionable and that he gave everyone free will... As if that's not the dumbest thing.

They all serve this imaginary god in fear. Tbh most of these folks would rather live here on earth than go to some paradise in the sky where they'll have to worship and sing praises to a god for eternity like slaves or programmed robots.
Take away Hell from Christianity and watch people become irreligious. That's why they're afraid to embrace logic, just like the guy up there that told me God is unquestionable.

Quick question.
Why won't God kill Satan and his demons now, and end evil in the world?
Why does he have to wait for more people to sin against him, since he knows the amount of people who are going to end up in hell?
I'm waiting.

GOD SEES THE FUTURE.
BEFORE CREATING THE EARTH, HE KNEW EVIL WILL BE INVENTED AND MANY PEOPLE WILL MAKE MISTAKES AND SUFFER FOR ETERNITY IN HELL. HE WAS AWARE OF ALL THE FLAWS IN THIS DESIGN, ALL THE NATURAL DISASTERS AND DISEASES.

YET, HE GOES ON TO CREATE THE WORLD AND THE DEVIL, WITHOUT DOING ANYTHING TO STOP EVIL AND PREVENT THE EXISTENCE OF PAIN AND HELL.

THIS PERSONALITY ISN'T WORTHY TO BE CALLED LOVING, INTELLIGENT AND JUST. THIS IS A CONFUSED PSYCHOPATH RIGHT HERE.
