Read the Bible! Man was given a test (this life) that God couldn't afford the angels, because they already knew of His existence (yet they chose to rebel against him anyway, and suffer for it for all eternity for some reason). It's free will! We we're afforded the grace of repentance while in this mortal coil because, once the truth is known, God can no more forgive those who doubted his existence before death anymore than he can forgive the very leader of those that commit the most sinful of acts (doubt). The unbelievers (Jews, Hindus, Muslims, Buddhists, evolutionists, etc.) will all suffer the same eternal fate as the Devil, because they were all given the same chance to come to know the one true king and his blood sacrifice (Jesus), yet refused to do so. Lucifer, like Darwin and Dawkins, is beyond repentance.

Repentance is not in Satan's nature. Repentance involves humility, acceptance and then voluntary release of the flawed self.


then how do you explain Satan's obedience to God in the bible, especially in the book of Job?


In Job, Satan gleefully taunts God, it pleases Satan that Job suffers. Satan believes he can turn Job.


that would require alot of repentance and acceptance on Satan's part IF he is how you describe him to be.. IF he's actually a being ..


Satan has to concede defeat. He has no choice.



so funny to observe and study the absolute neurosis that religious books can create in individuals.


Your opinion that those who understand universal polarity are neurotic is formed by your misunderstanding of said polarity.


just because a book is popular.. the pack mentality sinks in, people do what the person next to them is doing, follow the leader.. and hypnotically absorb the information as absolute fact... characters and all.. as actual reality.


Satan is the figurehead of all that is darkness. Satan represents the heart of darkness that is in us all.


to take a book as rich and deep as the bible is in allegory and metaphor, and watch fools like this preach about the characters like they're in some hollywood action movie.. is truly a spectacle to look down upon and witness from the vantage point of wisdom.


Your wisdom is flawed. You do not have the authority to look down on anyone. That authority is God's alone.


have fun in superstitious pretend land, man.. good luck with that lol..
(homey took the screenplay a bit too serious)



Your sneering insults are reminiscient of Satan's taunts in Job.

What would seriously happen if satan repented to God and asked for forgiveness? Would God forgive him and be welcomed into heaven? What would happen to the others who had died and went to hell? Would humanity on earth be effected?


Going by the scripture, God's covenant was with Man. We don't really know the full extent of any possible covenant of Angels, unless I happen to have missed that part of the Bible. So, all we can do is speculate. It's a highly original question, to be sure.

God has never been too forgiving on those who rejected him though, even the Men who have done so, so I'm not thinking it would really matter all that much...

I kind of liked the Dogma approach (in the movie Dogma, for clarification)...what if Satan could prove God wrong? Another interesting proposition...

maybe its a good idea to understand the angel concept then.
an angel means messenger. Basicly it is a dead thing,
reflecting a message. Reflecting the truth in you.
So can a dead something repent ? no it can only be dead,
thats why it was never really there, still was, will be, but doesn't exsist.
The pit is where the lies are believed to be true.
God does not have sin, because he is the only one,
his accuser is you. From left to right. If you accuse yourself,
you kill yourself, because the only thing there is is God,
so god can choose against himself through you.
The U-turn of the lost sheep.
Accuse - forgive (understand)
Black - white
Hot - cold not lukewarm.

God = Truth ?
So replace the word God with Truth,
and suddenly heaven goes open.
How can Truth be searched by us,
and reject us ? it can't.
Repenting means seeing truth,
meaning seeing God,
meaning becoming more of God,
God comes down,
in you, and kills the accuser (the curse on mankind = lies)
by fire = understanding (the blessing)
