: Is there really a devil?
: History of religion has always believed in the devil, but has portrayed him in different lights....he himself transforms into an angel of light, making something that is evil seem innocent and fun.
: His best ploy: having people believe he don't exist...this is to his own advantage.
That's the same trick those wicked invisible flying purple unicorns use, too! Why, most people don't even believe in them, either.
: He is a malignant enemy of God and Man! Whatever Jehovah wills, he opposes - including prophecy and Jesus.
Wow! What a coincidence. Those wicked invisible flying purple unicorns oppose everything Jehovah wills, too! It must be an invisible conspiracy with invisible beings invisibly opposing invisible willings of God. This should be reported to the proper authorities, Violet. Stat!
: John 8:44 - Manslayer when he began, didn't stand fast in the truth. - We are reminded that Satan used to be in the truth, one of Jehovah's servants...until he became an apostate...in opposition to Jehovah's will.
Manslayer? Name ONE single person Satan personally killed. Just one. Any old one will do. Now, how many people can you name that Jehovah killed? I know it's a tough question because Jehovah kills entire civilizations and planets, and it is hard to keep track of all his murdering.
: An apostate himself transforms into an 'angel of light'
That's an assertion. Assertions require evidence. If you are asserting that apostates are like the "father of the lie" then just list all the lies we've told. We're waiting and the whole world it watching and waiting for your response, Violet.
: - "there for you until you challenge my arguments and I dump you like a hot turd."
Yeah, you tend to "dump" challenges by running from them. We can all see that.
: - evening (sic) affecting people in the congregation - they are a shining example of how Satan transforms himself.
Yeah, your Brooklyn Masters love to make accusations without offering a shred of evidence, don't they? It's a pretty grave accusation to accuse people of being a transformation of Satan. Grave accusations deserve solid evidence, but your beloved Watchtower Corporation doesn't have any. They just expect dumb dubs to believe all the crap they hurl from the platform without questioning it.
: Satan has misapplied scripture to his own advantage
All Satan ever did was tell the truth to Eve in Garden of Eden, make a two-bit bet with God and fuck up Job and his family as part of the bet, make a few people go crazy (invisibly, of course) who were crazy in the first place, and bribe Jesus. Big deal. God killed the entire planet in Noah's day. Compared with Bible-God, Satan is the good guy.
: - challenging and tempting Jesus, for which he got a quick rebuttal! Jesus could have made a difference if he had taken the kingdoms and could have indeed fixed many of mankinds problems, but he knew that that would be a temporary solution and it was not what Jehovah has willed.
Of course this temptation was also invisible, since the only one who witnessed it was the guy who said he was tempted, and even he didn't write it down. The guy that wrote it down heard it from him. Allegedly.
: Satan is also like a Mafia boss - with his organisation of underlings - stationed all over the earth to complete his demented commands. That organisation works in such a way - just like the mafia - that the 'boss' cannot have anything pinned on him because he delegates it to his henchmen and therefore society cannot convict and do not belief the mafia boss has had his hand in so many pies - Satan is brilliant at this tactic and no one is willing to blame all of mankinds sorrows on him because he directly hasn't had a hand in it.
Just like the Tower to think that every thing is about "Organizations."
: He bullies the big nations into submission and any stragglers are attacked....any who would defy his purposes and make a stand. - right now the U.S.A is doing a brilliant job of leading and it is a sess pool of degeneration.
How does Satan "bully" the big nations into submission? Oh, I know! He does it "invisibly!"
: Satan has had 6000 years to work us out and he didn't waste any time. He knows us inside and out and he knows exactly how to manipulate ALL of us...whether we be witnesses, part of other religions, non believers or apostates. He's tried and tested many methods and has the most effective utilised extensively.
Right, and Bible-God again has the perfect solution: he's going to kill nearly the entire planet! Want an end to human suffering? Kill 6 BILLION people. Want an end to disease and poverty? Kill 6 BILLION people. Want an end to corruption and bad governments? Kill 6 BILLION people.
: I thought of you guys as I was reading it and I felt and great sense of sorrow:
: Isaiah 65:14 - Look! My own servants will cry out joyfully because of the good condition of the heart, but you yourselves will make outcries because of the pain of heart and you will howl because of sheer breakdown of spirit.
Cry away, Violet. Of course, applying that scripture as you obviously have, makes you a judgemental twit, and any "sorrow" you have is overshadowed by your own self-righteousness.
: I truly hope you guys think about that scripture. I did. I was where you were a few years ago and I've re-examined myself and the world around me and have come to the conclusion that I have....
You don't know shit, and what's worse, you don't know that you don't know shit.
Enjoy your Cult. You are a perfect candidate.
