Lack Of Evidence For Satan And Demons

He will die, not when aadriver says so, but when God says so... you know... prophecy.  (Thursday Jul 21 | post #14)

Lack Of Evidence For Satan And Demons

This is evident since in the book of Job you see Satan coming from the earth back to heaven in the during a meeting. Job 1:6 - 6 Now the day came when the sons of the true God*+ entered to take their station before Jehovah,+ and Satan+ also entered among them.+ 7 Then Jehovah said to Satan: “Where have you come from?” Satan answered Jehovah: “From roving about on the earth and from walking about in it.”+ The bible does not reveal why God allowed this, but if I had to take a guess, it's was because they were still a family. Yes a family, Satan although a rebellious son, was still a son of God. You don't just immediately kick out or kill your son if he is disrespectful and rebellious.. or do you?  (Thursday Jul 21 | post #12)

Lack Of Evidence For Satan And Demons

There is plenty of evidence that God, Jesus, angels, Satan, and demons exist. But the evidence does not suffice for people like you. The evidence is namely the bible. But if he is limited to one particular location, then what manner of harm can he do? Revelation 12:9 - So down the great dragon+ was hurled, the original serpent,+ the one called Devil+ and Satan,+ who is misleading the entire inhabited earth;+ he was hurled down to the earth,+ and his angels were hurled down with him How many demons are there? Revelation 12:3, 4 - 3 Another sign was seen in heaven. Look! A great fiery-colored dragon,+ with seven heads and ten horns and on its heads seven diadems;* and its tail drags a third of the stars+ of heaven, and it hurled them down to the earth... what can a demon do to a person? 1 Timothy 4:1, 2 - However, the inspired word* clearly says that in later times some will fall away from the faith, paying attention to misleading inspired statements*+ and teachings of demons, 2 by means of the hypocrisy of men who speak lies,+ whose conscience is seared as with a branding iron. Does a demon enter a persons brain and reroute the electrical impulses traveling along the neural pathways? The bible does not reveal this. "there is no evidence that anyone is receiving any special advantages courtesy or their worship of Satan. We would expect that some Satan worshipers would be exhibiting all kinds of special abilities if Satan was a real character capable of doling them out. But we see nothing of this." There is really no evidence that God is blessing people either, it's people personal experience and opinion that God is blessing them. We do know that God blesses those who act in harmony with is will. This is also evident in the bible. The book you probably think is rubbish. So in conclusion to all this, you want evidence this is real and not imaginary; study the bible and why it can be trusted.  (Tuesday Jul 19 | post #4)

did YOU REALIZE

Jehovah used Cyrus to free the Jews from the Babylonians so they could return to Jerusalem. Did the Jews thank Cyrus every year on a specific date for what he did? No.  (Tuesday Jul 19 | post #71)

Conditional love

Jesus said: “You are my friends if you do what I am commanding you.”—JOHN 15:14. Sounds conditional to me... just saying.  (Thursday Jul 7 | post #2)

I wasn't making that comparison, and I didn't ask whether you would reject them or not, I asked could you? I wasn't going to compare the GB to the faithful men in the bible. It's ok, I knew you couldn't answer honestly before I asked.  (Feb 16, 2016 | post #421)

You expect imperfect human beings to have unity without a level of conformity? Not going to happen. You expect me to believe that Christians spread through out the many different conflicting religions professing Christianity are united in the spirit of Christ? Impossible. So if your understanding of Jesus Christ wheat and weeds parable is accurate people don't have to stop being Jehovah's Witnesses do they?  (Feb 12, 2016 | post #360)

So these scriptures apply to all Christians? How can that be so when all professed Christians don't believe the same things and have the oneness of spirit Christians are encouraged to have? Luke 10:16 - Whoever listens to you listens to me.+ And whoever disregards you disregards me also. Moreover, whoever disregards me disregards also Him who sent me.”+ (So Jesus words at Luke 10 apply to all Christians? Not likely) Acts 13:47 - For Jehovah has commanded us in these words:‘I have appointed you as a light of nations, for you to be a salvation to the ends of the earth.’” (So all Christians can say what Paul said at Acts 13? Not likely) God chooses who has the spiritual birth in Christ so no man can deny any one of it. You don't get to choose your spiritual birth just like you couldn't choose your physical one.  (Feb 12, 2016 | post #357)

If Jehovah's Witness' are Unitarians...

Individual beliefs? Does God's word the bible encourage us not to have individual beliefs? Doesn't it say all Christians should have the same beliefs? 1 Corinthians 1:10 Now I urge you, brothers, through the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that you should all speak in agreement and that there should be no divisions among you,+ but that you may be completely united in the same mind and in the same line of thought.+ Romans 15:5 Now may the God who supplies endurance and comfort grant you to have among yourselves the same mental attitude that Christ Jesus had, 6 so that unitedly+ you may with one voice* glorify the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ. 2 Corinthians 13:11 Finally, brothers, continue to rejoice, to be readjusted, to be comforted,+ to think in agreement,+ to live peaceably;+ and the God of love and of peace+ will be with you. Ephesians 4: 3 earnestly endeavoring to maintain the oneness of the spirit in the uniting bond of peace.+ Philippians 2:2 make my joy full by being of the same mind and having the same love, being completely united,* having the one thought in mind.+ "speak in agreement" "no divisions" "united in the same mind" "same line of thought" "same mental attitude that Christ Jesus had" " unitedly have one voice" "think in agreement" "maintain the oneness of the spirit" "same mind" "same love" "completely united" "having the one thought in mind" Hmmm.... seems like Jehovah's Witnesses are right in wanting to not have "individual beliefs" whatever that means.  (Feb 12, 2016 | post #12)

personally....!

Plus when you read and study the Greek scriptures you can tell something is wrong. Everyone consider Matthew Chapter 4. Do you really expect me to believe when Jesus referred to his Father he said the Lord your God!? That doesn't even sound right once you learn the truth it should be Jehovah your God! NIV: Jesus answered him, “It is also written: ‘Do not put the Lord your God to the test.” NWT: Jesus said to him: “Again it is written: ‘You must not put Jehovah your God to the test.’”  (Feb 12, 2016 | post #608)

You only learned about Jehovah when you were one of Jehovah's Witnesses. If you grew up a southern baptist you would have no clue who Jehovah was. Everyone watch her deny it!  (Feb 12, 2016 | post #331)

That's interesting since it's Jesus speaking of someone else in the scripture in Luke I'm referring to, and the scripture in Acts I quoted it's actually Paul and Barnabas speaking. So while those scriptures most certainly apply to Jesus, they also applied to imperfect men mentioned in the bible. Are there any imperfect men that those scriptures apply to today? If not why not?  (Feb 12, 2016 | post #330)

If they really are who they say they are yes. Does this apply to someone you know today: Luke 10:16 - Whoever listens to you listens to me.+ And whoever disregards you disregards me also. Moreover, whoever disregards me disregards also Him who sent me.”+ Acts 13:47 - For Jehovah has commanded us in these words: ‘I have appointed you as a light of nations, for you to be a salvation to the ends of the earth.’”  (Feb 11, 2016 | post #319)

LOL, I don't care about their description of Mohammed. So because there was no miraculous sign that means they have not been chosen by Jesus? Well in that case no one has any proof that they are anointed either? So we have to look beyond miracles and signs.  (Feb 11, 2016 | post #312)
