The whole theme of the bible is that, with humans that have "free will", Satans challenge is that they will not follow God's will. The book of Job is a perfect example, Satan said that "of coarse he follows you, you've blessed him." So God says "O.K. I'll take my protection away, do your thing." Satan tried, to the extreme, Job suffered, lasted, and was doubly blessed by God for his faithfulness.

I wonder if his family, that was wiped, out felt doubly blessed?

Did God say "wipem out." No this was initiated by Satan. Just remember that in the universe, according to the Bible we're pretty much at the bottom of the food chain. God had to prove to angels and demons that a human would be faithful to him. But it was Satan's challenge.

So God wiped out a faithful mans family to prove a point he allready knew?

I feel a lot better about it now

God didn't wipem out Satan did. If you believe the Bible you know that Satan led a significant # of angels away from God, HE had to answer the challenge, but I bet he grieved for those lost. Don't get me wrong, I'm not a Bible pusher just relating the facts.

remind me again... which one was the baddie


Only WHEN you accept God into your soul/heart can you know "who the baddie is" until that time you live in a world/realm of confusion, misunderstanding, darkness and fear.

We cannot understand God. He gave us not the power or reasoning which He has. We choose faith in Him that He knows what He is doing. We don't question His authority.

The closer you walk with God, the better you understand satan/lucifer/devil/evil. And then you will not have to ask "Who is the baddie"

Faith is a wonderful thing. Blind faith is a dangerous thing, see: The Crusades.

God didn't do it, Satan did in fact. However, he did it after God told him to.

Yes, it is sick...but it shouldn't come as a big surprise. According to his own books, He often shows no regard for human life (even innocents), yet millions continue to revere him....amazing... Who's really the better con artist? Satan, or God?
