So, if there is NO Satan, is their evil in the world?
The idea that what God commands is good is known as the Divine Command Theory. I’ve spoken to people who seem to suggest that without the Commandments in the Bible people will become more evil, that without some sort of authority to appeal to support morality we’d all go out and be immoral. As I’ve pointed out to many of them the Commandment, Thou Shalt Not Kill does not make killing immoral, killing is immoral and thus they made the commandment. They are writing down in stone what simple empathy tells us, that murder is wrong.
