I've come to the conclusion that Satan is real. I know it sounds crazy and the truth is I thought religions were a load of crap but I was wrong.

Sure religions have been used to enslave mankind. There is no arguing against that. When you dig a little bit deeper though, you quickly realize that the powers that be have been manipulating us with the concept of half truths. Nobody really knows what is the purpose of life and there is a reason why this knowledge is being hidden from us.

So, the Devil is the Lord of lies. We have been living in a world shaped by anything but truth. We lie to our childrens about everything, from Santa Claus to Halloween, and we make them believe that life is only good. Which it isn't.
Then, we all grow up and quickly understand that it is one hell of a ride.

I've seen the Devil with my own eyes. It is not what you think. It's hidden right in front of our eyes, all around us. Satan is wicked as # and he is working to bring us down with him. I still respect and love him because without Satan we would never had the chance to experience this fun but crazy reality. To be fair, I'm just as guilty as you guys. Sinning every #ing day. And I'm totally attached to my TV and video games. At least, I understand that this world in its current state is a blasphemy to God. I know I'm gonna have to let go of my attachments if I ever want to have a chance to get my place in heaven. Please, be smarter than the ones who truly believe in nothing. We are all gonna be judged in the end. The end of times, all of mankind have been speaking about it. My advice to you-

Make sure you are in peace with yourself and the choices you made in the past because the final jugdment is gonna come when you least expect it. I've had dreams about it. And it's gonna take us all by surprise.

Ofc I know I don't have any tangible proof of Satan's existence. You gotta have to take my word for it but I've seen him. I've asked for the truth and I feel like it was delivered. I could even go as far as saying that somekind of hidden truth about ancient civilizations was given to me. But that's a subject for another time.

My point is, you probably never considered that the Devil is more than a simple metaphor. Ask yourself this, why is every cultures around the world telling stories about the personification of evil? We might be one of the first civilization to deny the existence of God and Satan. Not smart at all.

So what if Satan is real? What would it mean for you guys and your perception of reality?

Evil is real. Satan is real.

What do you mean by that you will “have to let go of attachments” to get your place in heaven? That’s a Buddhist deal, the letting go of attachments. We are supposed to have some attachments- to people we love and to ideals and beliefs that are good.

Satan is the love of materialism... its not an entity

Mostly all "evils" come from a love of materialism

Truly an eye opening realization that changes everything for a person. He certainly disguises himself as an Angel of light, and of course he's okay with a person not believing. Anything to separate you from the truth of the one true God and Creator.

The great news, God has a foolproof salvation plan that every person has equal access to. For those on the fence, now is the perfect time to start thinking spiritually and get things sorted. The eternal spiritual realms are more real than this temporary Universe we live in.

These things were once common knowledge, and one was crazy for not believing. How times change. Evil is good and good is evil, and truth is blurred and persecuted. Even so Lord Jesus, come. Amen.

I feel like we have to make sacrifices to get through heaven. The kind of sacrifice you would probably have a hard time to commit to.

A good example is Porn. When you get in front of God, how are you gonna justify all the deviant porn you have been consuming? I might be wrong but I'm pretty sure you cannot go to paradise if you are feeding evil willingfully. There must come a time when you make a choice and either feed evil or the contrary.
I'm not saying people will go to hell because they watch porn... my point is to be in paradise means to be perfect, kinda.
So we gotta work here in this reality and do what we believe to be right. God is patient as # but he has its limits.

About Porn, I got rid of it almost completely. It's evil and there is no denying that. Think about it mate.

Like I said, I've seen evil in its purest form. It is more than a concept.

What makes you think Satan is not an entity but only a metaphor for materialism? I'm curious

just gotta read it in your bible... the character is personified, but the descriptions of what he does and says perfectly describes materialism

A lot of people say money is the root of all evil. I put some money in salt and nothing happened. Should evil not have shriveled up and died? That is what happens when you put salt on plant roots.

Satan is a construct of the church when some people started getting interested in worshiping Pan. That is why he has horns and hooves in most descriptions.

The church says "Don't even look at that. It is evil and you will burn for worshiping that".

All organized religions are created by man. Satan is man made.

Check out 'The Devil' card in the Tarot deck.
There is an image of a man and woman chained to a cube with Satan sitting above.
It represents being chained to materialism.

Yeah ofc he is the personification of materialism. I'm just saying have you ever considered that the Devil might be more than a metaphor?

I mean, you are not gonna take my word for it but I've seen him man. He has many forms from what I can tell and it sucks that talking about this stuff makes me look like I'm crazy and delusional but I'm just fighting for the truth. So if he is real, then so be it. I may be wrong and in that case I will take back what I've said but honestly, I think the proof is all around us. When you get to see it, it's hard to come back and pretend it doesn't exist.

Just look at the most popular artists like Metallica and ACDC, most of them swim with the Devil and they are pretty straight forward about it. Sex, drugs and rock n' roll... yeah that doesn't sound like a commitment to God.

And btw, I have no religion affiliation. I only search for the truth, wherever it may be.

It is true.

The concept of money is destroying our planet and our civilization. Great discoveries will be shutdown right away so some bastards can make more profit from something else.

My dad has always been telling me there is no society without money but I tend to differ.

Those who claim the adversary is not a person are sorely mistaken and will be overtaken by 'the lie'.

The devil has many titles and a trinity, the devil, his anti-Christ and the false prophet - his kingdom is a counterfeit of Gods kingdom. He is called a murderer, a liar and a theif.

Those who say you have to 'work' for your salvation have a form of Godliness but deny the power thereof by removing Christs sacrifice for their sin NATURE. You don' repent of one sin over another, you repent of your condition before you came to Christ who hides your life under the fathers wings. You don't 'earn' it at all, and thinking that you can will lead only to frustration.

Christ died willingly for you. If you accept that and admit it, make a commitment to Christ and truly repent of your sins, the holy spirit WILL do a work in you and you will NEVER be the same, ever. Your conscience wont be seared and sin will cause you to flee to the father instead of hardening your heart.

You have to realize that those not in Christ are judged under God's moral law, the ten commandments, with the addendum of Jesus adding to them the further commandments "if you look at a woman with lust, you've committed adultery in your heart". You can NOT keep the commandments perfectly, no one can, only Christ. If you accept this, you're 80% of the way there.

You then accept that Jesus DID live a perfect life and died for YOUR sins, not for works, but for grace through faith.

Puffed up Christians just can't accept that the gospel is so easy because they want to be justified under their 'great works' it's NOT about you! Work out your salvation with fear and trembling because you DON'T DESERVE IT.

Be thankful to Christ in all things, knowing that you taste good food thanks to the taste buds he gave you, you hug your family with the hands and arms he gave you, with touch too. You breathe the air he created your heart to put the life in your blood and your eyes he gave you to see the world he made.

If you are in Christ good works will be added to you, according to the rightful earning of your rewards which Christ brings at the second coming, some people will be given much, others are naked and ashamed (but still saved) in the millenium.
Then after, the great white throne judgement for sinners and we all live equal.

THIS IS THE BIBLE and gospel if you actually care to read it, Christian.
Do NOT make salvation hard, it's not your right. The gospel was written to confound the wise and prideful with simplicity and love. Add to it at your own peril.

How can a metaphor roam about like a lion and stand before God saying "I (A metaphor would not say "i") have been going up and down on the Earth and in the Earth"...... The devil IS a person.

Well, if we look at our history, Satan is believed to have lead the whole world astray. He went to Eve and made her doubt about the true intentions of God. The original lie was that we would become like Gods knowing good and evil by eating from that well-known tree. So yeah, he's got us good.

Well the actual lie wasn't that we'd know good from evil, that was actually true.

The lie was "you will be like the most high". This is exactly what Satan thought he could do. It's the same from the beginning. He doesn't change and Ecclesiastes tells us, even the new things we think will change things are vanity and grasping for the wind.

I believe that Jesus Christ is real. But I have another perspective than yours.

I feel like the concept of having to only believe in JC to go back to the father is extremely simplistic. It requires no effort at all. It just gives you the promise of redemption by doing only one thing-
Believing.

The problem with that is most people will just rely on the idea that they only have to show faith and everything's gonna be alright. I'm pretty sure this is what I would call a half truth. Sure, the story of Jesus is probably legit but I feel like what is being taught is truly deceiving.

From my point of view, we have to honor the way Jesus lived. The church tells you you only have to believe in him to go to heaven but logically it makes more sense to think you have to learn to live like he did. Which is a sinless life.

Good luck with that

Man, you seem so confident about your claims.

I told you I had experiences in my life that unfortunately confirmed in a way that evil and Satan are real.

Are you implying indirectly that I'm crazy or a liar?
