So, according to the Bible, Satan used to be up there with God but rebelled against him, lost that skirmish, and was banished to hell along with about one third of the angels or what/who ever the devil got to agree to fight with the Devil against God.
So here's my question -- why does God allow Satan to have all of these interactions with people on earth on a daily basis (tempting them to sin, keeping them away from church, and a whole host of bad things)?
The devil is apparently happy when you rebel against God because he did that, so why does God allow the devil to basically enjoy himself for all eternity -- messing with people on earth --when the Devil actually went mano-a-mano with God? I mean, the devil could not question the existence of God because he was right up in heaven with God and went to battle against him -- yet he can continually please himself by screwing around with mere mortals here on earth for eternity --or at least 1000s of years.
Meanwhile, us poor folks here on earth, according to most Christians I know, are going to be cast into a lake of fire or eternal hell or just a really bad place if we "don't accept Jesus Christ as our personal savior."
I mean -- damn (pun intended) -- all these people who never had a face-to-face chat with God are eternally damned and, at a minimum, unhappy, even though they are forced to accept the existence of God on "faith" rather than their own eyes, while God allows the Devil to basically have a hell of a good time (pun intended), even though the Devil is one entity the Bible clearly tells us actually conversed with God.
Isn't that -- really twisted?
