Consider: Is it time for God to strip Satan of all his worldly power, lies, deceptions, sin, and take back his Godly control to see his people live in a world free of sin? Should God imminently rid this world of all evil forever, so that human beings can start to enjoy their true inheritance, and gifts that were truly their birth rights before Satan’s evil deception, since God’s purpose for all human beings at the beginning were meant for us to live in peace, joy, harmony, and to love one another?

All answers are welcomed!

I do not give "god" The power of reason and decision making. These are characteristics of humans.

Yes Michael but I think it's important to remember that 'everything' is contained within 'God' or 'All that is'... even all those wonderful characteristics that we humans have, both desirable ones and those that seem less desirable :)

@Michael, Interesting answer. Human Characteristics: Indeed they are, but do not let us forget the source from whence we came, even if you do not believe in God, there is something out there that is controlling this universe, humans, and everything in life!

Thank you and it is always a pleasure to read your answers!

The perception of Good (God) and Bad (Satan) are personal and relative depending on who you talk to.... But most would accept that they represent in the mind of most men: that God is Good and Satan is Evil or Bad.... hence the opposite (complement) of God.

One energy can't exist without it's complement or opposite energy. Why ? Because there really is only One Energy that exists. I don't subscribe to the belief of a Being called Satan vs. a Being called God ..Satan being that Being which is evil and out to tempt mankind (and is also God's nemesis). In my mind that is just a colorful way of showing you the complementary duality in life and in all things. But...if we want to use your parable we can easily do so. . If "God" wanted to destroy "Satan" he would also destroy himself. IF God represents good..then Satan represents bad? How would you measure "good" without "bad" as a contrast and comparison?

The One energy fractured off a bit of itself... Yet IT retains most of Itself as ever expanding potential (think of the human brain). Then "That" splits into two energies which gives birth to infinite energy variations. Think of yin and yang ... an ancient pictorial representation of two energies that consume and give birth to each other...simultaneously. We see a physical representation of it in the human biology (remember: as above, so below). A sperm cell and a female egg come together as ONE ....then break down into a multitude of cells...which ultimately becomes billions of cells...that make up one individual.

A very thought out answer, and the examples and comparisons are refreshing, but do you think there was only good in the world, before there was evil? Love to hear your thoughts on this, thank you!

Thank you @Vee ... Firstly, I think good and evil are decidedly human labels. Is illness/disease evil ? Is law of attraction good ? Since "good" cannot exist without "bad". I am inclined to believe that they both exist(ed) simultaneously in the Potential.

I think it's important to remember that God gave us free will. When we use that free will to take our attention away from *satan* or evil, and place that attention instead on a Heaven right here on Earth, which is what we're really all looking for, I think we'll find that the evil we perceive will dissolve all by itself.We are the ones giving that so called evil power by giving our attention to it.

Yes giving power to evil is one of the traps in life we need to stay clear of, otherwise it becomes our down fall. I like your answer, thank you!

No, if you take away the bicycle so the boy doesn't harm himself, he never learns the joy of riding a bicycle.

This is the same for Satan if we take away the evil we take away the knowledge of evil and therefore are left with innocent ignorance. We have no choice but God then. However, with a choice we have awareness, knowledge and understanding, that there is a choice and we choose God.

This is why when Adam and Eve ate of the Tree of Good and Evil God said, "Behold they have become like us." It was our first step to becoming like God, we evolved over many years until the point that Jesus came and taught us more for how much like God we really are, we are the sons and daughters of God, God as Jesus came to teach us this.

We must be good by choice as adults, we understand the consequences and willingly choose good. As children we are forced to be good, we do not know the consequences. Furthermore we learn of our power over evil and Satan by having Satan and evil to resist and cast out. This as well teaches us of our inherent abilities as the sons and daughters of God. We learn of our abilities to heal all manner of sickness by having all manner of sickness to heal.

In other words we learn to make Earth like Heaven by our choices. We are in effect creating from the dross, gold, much as God did on the infinitely large scale of creating existence.

It is clear that the idea of Satan has a lesser effect upon your general out look of evil in life, and that indeed is strength!

Thank you for your most inspiring answer!

You are very welcomed Vee I did really like this question, it seems at lest so far I am the only one that gave you a point and star for this, I have plenty that never get a point or only one point too. It is a good question so you received +1 and a * from me.

(11 Jun '11, 01:13) Wade Casaldi

Yes we need to see that when we say jump in Jesus name, Satan has to listen.
