• Are you trying to convince me that satan is the good guy? lol u know, college basketball has REALLY taken the underdog thing too far...
  • Interesting question :) Found a great blog where they've given this one a LOT of thought: Here's a quote summing it up: "I counted the number of people that were killed by God in the Bible. I came up with 2,391,421, which, of course, greatly underestimates God's total death toll, since it only includes those killings for which specific numbers are given. No attempt was made to include the victims of Noah's flood, Sodom and Gomorrah, or the many plagues, famines, fiery serpents, etc., with which the good book is filled. Still, 2 million is a respectable number even for world class killers. But how does this compare with Satan? How many did he kill in the Bible? Well I can only find ten, and even these he shares with God, since God allowed him to do it as a part of a bet. I'm talking about the seven sons and three daughters of Job."
  • We all grow old and die because we are imperfect... Imperfection equals sin, and sin is not always things we do wrong. (Genesis 2:16, 17) Jehovah God also gave this command to the man:
  • Satan's purpose is to get people to reject Jehovah God and worship him...that's why he offered Jesus ALL the Kingdoms of the world in exchange for one act of Satan... And dead people cannot do this. When Jesus was a baby, and before he began his ministry, Satan tried to have King Herod kill eliminate his future influence...but failed... But Satan himself killed no one...To support him [ Satan] he needs people alive.
  • 1-22-2017 It is not reliable to let people tell you what the bible says. Many people will make up stuff because they don't know what it says, and many will make up stuff because they wish it would not say what it says. You just have to read it for yourself. For example, God is the creator, not the destroyer. Satan uses diseases, natural disasters, and other people to attack God's people. The Hebrew language has a verb case that is not directly translatable to English. It is translated "I do" when it actually means "I am forced to allow". That would apply when a general takes credit for something done by his underlings, or a citizen says "We did this" and it was actually the army that did it.
  • Very good question. Consider below: GOD TAKES NO PLEASURE IN THE DEATH OF HUMANS, INCLUDING THE WICKED. Jehovah God is the Source of life and the Creator of humankind. (Psalm 36:9) Therefore, he does not desire to see people die. Sadly, though, there are people who wickedly scheme to oppress and even kill others. (Psalm 37:12,
  • What most people fail to know is the reasons behind when the Lord God killed or had people killed. One of the main reasons was to eliminate descendants of the Anunnaki. Bones of Anunnaki have been found showing many were over 12 feet tall and some as much as 37 feet tall. The Anunnaki were descendants of some 200 angels of heaven who came to earth finding the women beautiful and produced children with them. There were other people in the Bible who disobeyed the requirements of the Lord God and He had them put to death. The Lord God never killed anyone without reason. Mostly to keep the Hebrew peoples (the Jews) pure. before making bold statements it is best to understand the reasons behind what was done.
  • King James Version John 8:44 Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it. Obviously Satan, starting with Adam and Eve his lie caused their death, and thereby everyone who has died since. Here is a link that I hope you find interesting Will suffering ever end?
  • In the Bible, Satan is depicted as this trickster who tells you the truth from a certain perspective in order to manipulate you into going against God's will. For example, (assuming the serpent it indeed Satan) tempting Eve into disobeying God's commandment not to eat the fruit from the tree of knowledge, telling her that eating it will open her eyes to good and evil, and not cause her to immediately die. It was true, though, and, in the story, Eve ate the fruit and what Satan said happened. Keep in mind that, in the story, one chapter earlier, God told Adam that eating the fruit would kill him. So, in the story, who was being more deliberately deceptive in order to attain a certain outcome? Who ended up getting their way? I don't know about other skeptics, but I think the story reflects poorly on God, making Him out to be the trickster- trying to keep Adam and Eve ignorant- misrepresenting what He knows in order to manipulate them, and then being too distracted to prevent what He doesn't want happening from happening. On top of all of that, He punishes the two for their disobedience with a curse of essentially endless suffering. Now, I know religious people will refuse to think of this logically, but, if you have an ounce of skepticism, really honestly think about this parable for a moment. If you had a toddler, and you had a piece of cake that you didn't want them to eat, so you told the toddler that they would die if they ate the cake, then left the toddler and the cake unattended... and you came back to find out that the toddler's older brother told the toddler that the toddler would not, in fact, die from eating the cake, and then the toddler ate the cake. So you responded by kicking both of the children out of your house and leaving them to fend for themselves, you would be not only guilty of child abuse and neglect, according to common law, but you'd be in the wrong according to virtually every moral code understood by humans. So, honestly, what are we supposed to learn from the story? To me, it looks like Satan (serpent) is just telling Eve the truth. He didn't shove the fruit into Eve's mouth or anything remotely like that. And Eve was just punished for pursuing knowledge. And God responded in the worst most unjustifiable way possible. So humans are curious, Satan tends to tell the truth, and God is a mass murderer? This is just one of a dozen or so fatal flaws with the Bible. The stories don't always convey positive message or teach practical lessons, and we already know that they are not historically accurate.
  • Thru Satan, all death came into the world, so he can be blamed for every death due to the fall in the garden. The bible is a history. History is full of death because we all die. Some of the deaths are recorded and many more are forgotten. 6/16/23
  • Well...I don't know how many (no one does), but certainly in the Bible God kills more than Satan. *** Why is that? The obvious reason is because the Bible is a book of the history of the acts of God...not a book of the history of the acts of Satan. *** Consider: you read a biography of George Washington. Now: in that biography, who kills more people (and we can add: orders more people to be killed)? Is it George Washington, or is it King George III? Surely it would be G.W. But what if you read a biography of King George III? Surely we would observe just the opposite. *** I'm not arguing that Satan killed more people than God. I'm only arguing that, in a story about God, you can expect that God is doing a lot more of just about everything (except sinning) than is any one else in the story...including Satan.
  • Whom do you believe to have the power to raise you from the dead?

  • 6/17/2023, the Torah does teach about the death penalty for a number of crimes. Moses was an instrument of God, and it is not that God wanted to see people get killed. The Mosaic law was established as a way to put fear in the Jews who got out of line. Under Satan's world domain, people have been dying since Cain killed Abel to the present wars.
  • All people die due Adams sin, which brought sin and so death, into the world .
