lots of big talking here with who's going to hell that don't believe this or that, which seems pointless after awhile but what the hell.I got the God side to all of this drama, but I'm curious why the devil wants as many people in hell that he "it"can get?
Is there some big payoff that none of us are aware about if he hits a certain number or percentage of souls he wins a prize or what?

This has always sounded like a big contest between 2 people that don't like each other and nothing more, which seems pretty damn lame people,don't you think?

c'mon people this isn't a loaded question,how does satan benefit from people going to hell?its always implied that its all about God and humans,but in reality its all about satan vs God,right?
it cant be one sided and only about God if hell and satan exist,there has to be something driving the devil,so what is it?

I guess Satan likes to win souls too. It's not a bad question. I don't think it's Satan vrs God as much as it is God and humans. We are God's children and he doesn't want to lose any of us to Satan. Satan has to be a little miffed only getting Earth's rejects.

Satan wants to be worshiped and will do ANYTHING to achieve that. If you want to worship him? God will let you.

Yes, it does. He was created in perfection,, as far as a created being can be created perfectly that is,,and it made him proud. So proud that he thought he could take Gods place and then be worshiped.

Yes, I believe in Heaven, and I think that we will pay for our sins, but I do not believe it will be an eternal punishment. I do not think a loving God would send a disbeliever into Hell for they do not see evidence in such a being. I honestly believe that God will give people a chance at death to redeem their belief.

I leave very soon my friend.

Thank you three for your support. I will probably be on from time to time there. This time is going to be fun, and I am looking forward to it just coming and going like the last one.

The devil is so twisted, that he still thinks that he can actually defeat God, in spite of the fact that Bible prophecy has been foretold.

The devil now HAS to try to win, because the prophecy about him (in the lake of fire) is quite grim.

The devil has tried to thwart God's plan from the beginning, using dictators to either kill the prophesied deliverer (killing babies in Egypt to destroy Moses, killing Babies in Israel to destroy Jesus), or has been trying to kill off God's chosen people (The Jews, in the book of Esther, The Jews in the Holocaust).

The devil is insane.

Hi Prov: I believe satan most certainly knows his fate is secured and so he is damn mad and is motivated to hurt God as much and in any way he can. He knows what causes God the most pain - destroying us. It's not about numbers, it's about pain, hurting God's heart. Humans are just pawns to him.

But humans are the focus of God's heart and are His most treasured creation. So the battle rages in the spiritual realm - for each and every one of us.

I like your questions.

Satan hates God. He will do whatever it takes to cause as much sorrow to God as he can. One way of doing this is to persecute and destroy God's children. The great persecution to the Christians that took place during the reign of Pagan and Papal Rome is a good example. Followers of Christ, however, only grew stronger under persecution, so he began to corrupt the church from within with false doctrine, paganism, and the rejection of God's commandments. Satan's work is not done, and he will soon portray his masterpiece of deception upon the world. The only way to distinguish truth from error will be by the Holy Scriptures.
