Yes, and no... Your not telling the entire story... With Satan being behind this whole thing... There were attempts to replace God's word with Apocrypha. It failed, then Satan tried again and pulled it off with two (secret) Catholic men, Westcott and Hort. They put pressure on the others in the Vatican to accept Satan's Alexandrian manuscripts, from which they produced their new Bible. To shorten the story, in 1611 the surviving Puritans brought the entire 1611 edition of the Bible out 'without' the 'Apocrypha.' God's victory over the Jesuit conspiracy... God wins again!:)

You're pretending.

First, it was not a response to me.

Not entirely true... The King James Bible is the only English Bible whose text does not contain a copyright. Any number of organizations may freely make copies of it.
That may sound good, but it has resulted in many changes to the text of our Bible.
The Bible says of the devil in Genesis 3:1,“Now the serpent was more subtle than any beast of the field which the LORD God had made.” If he cannot get you to discard your King James Bible for any of the new versions, he will try to 'corrupt' the very text of your Bible, while keeping the name “King James” or “Authorized Version” on the cover.:)
LOL @ Christians writing their own Bible.

Like this better?
As this prophecy continues from the context of Isaiah 13, it is important that we remember that Isaiah has two aspects of prophetic fulfillment in mind. First, there is the immediate and partial fulfillment regarding the empire of Babylon and its king. Second, there is the distant and ultimate fulfillment regarding the spiritual empire of Babylon - the world system - and its king, Satan.:)
LOL *snort*

Thanks for sharing your delusion.

You're writing your own Bible.

Go back and read it again.

Almost everything published before 1963 has no copyright.

I bet you read the Copyright Laws as well as you read the KJV. LOL

Hebrew Bible
The original Hebrew term, satan, is a noun from a verb meaning primarily to,“obstruct, oppose."
It is found in Numbers 22:22, 1 Samuel 29:4, Psalms 109:6
Yup. Might as well believe in an evil deity named "Speed Bump".

I believe in the Grand Unified Theory AKA "One God".

You are corect. OSAS is not in the Bible. I never said it was.
90% of everything Christains believe in isn't in the Bible.

According to OSAS Christians, Hitler is in Heaven and the 6 million Jews he murdered are in Hell.

Anyone that would even think twice about labeling themselves "GOD" in any venue is at least that, and using the Lord's name in vain to boot. Him and X are running a close race for the Topix Narcissism badge. There's a few others running a close second.
True, my username is a play on "God".

You however try to play God.

Yes. I am far better than you.

It "feels better" to blame all "bad" on some entity than it is to accept that "bad" lives within us all. Just depends on if you feed it or not.

I don't know...just doesn't seem right...blaming it all on that little guy in the red suit. He does have some finely honed points on that pitch fork of his.

Here is an excerpt from a rather interesting read...

"He was then directed to a service tunnel that would take him to the train platform and train he would learn to call his own. He had a long walk and it was a bit on the warm side. John found himself adjusting. He thought of his devil's uniform, complete with red tights, as a bit embarrassing but he tried to remind himself that he wasn't going to a costume party and that the uniform was not to be thought of as a costume but as a symbol of authority, a symbol he was likely to need.

John also felt a bit squeamish about his pitchfork training. He was used to accomplishing his purposes in indirect ways with minimal face-to-face involvement. His remnants of conscience quieted as he thought about the potential for moving up in the management system and then being able to pass-off the pitchfork work to others."

In the end...I think...that it was all about staticy prayers!

Point of clarification: Many things were copyrighted before 1923. But all such copyrights have expired in the US.

Incorrect. Now please pay attention.

Satan is a fictional character in a book, a Christian deity.

On which side? The victims or persecutors? They cannot be lumped together and classified. Persecutors may also be saved, and victims not definitely. Salvation has to do with our faith and repentance, not our appearance of faith. It is a bond with the Savior, and is invisible to others. Hitler died in his sin. Had he been born again of the Spirit of Christ that would not be. He regressed opposed to progressed in his beliefs and desire for the Eternal Gift.

Let's use the example that you just provided. Note that this is not Christian scripture, this is Hebrew scripture, as you noted. The Christian OT removed the "satan" reference from the passage.

You are surely familiar with the story of Balaam, eh?

Now watch very carefully

"...the angel of the LORD took his stand in the way as >an adversary< against him..."
http://biblelexicon.org/numbers/22-22.htm

Notice that this is not some evil force misleading Balaam into going against the will of YHWH. It was an angel >OF< YHWH trying to stop him from doing the wrong thing.

It is entirely possible that you are not at all familiar with the history of this character, Satan, since you have learned from dishonest Christian sources.

Fear not, for I am here to help.

I wrote this a few years back for good folks just like you who have been misled by lying Christians. PLEASE check the facts. I called it:

Let me re-post this with minor modification. The original post was deleted. It shows up for me when I am logged in but not when I am logged out:

All copyrights before 1923 have expired in the US.

The original KJV contained the rough equivalent of a modern copyright notice in it: "C-u-m Privilegio".

I added the dashes because the Topix police don't like the English version of the above Latin word.

The King was considered the owner of the privilege.
