    Just one thing wrong with knowing good and bad. It prevents joke-hova from setting up standards of "good" and "bad" that go against nature, and then enforcing them on us. And, once we know the real good and bad, joke-hova needs Noahide Law to force us back into slavery under threat of getting your head chopped off (yup, that is the penalty under that cursed law for breaking one of the 7 main rules, and there are nearly infinite ways to break them).

    God has shunned Satan perhaps for so going against his wishes, or perhaps just asking reasonable questions! Sounds familiar does it not? So like many of us who start questioning and out you go ! The only answer for challengers - Disfellowshipping !

    Wow the mind boggles once you are thinking outside the box !

    Actually it's later Christian writings that Identify Satan with the serpent in Eden. So as far as the story goes when originally written there was no unseen spirit using ventriloquism to talk to Eve that all came much latter. Gnostics OTOH have a whole different take on Adam and Eve and the Demiurge, who wanted to keep them ignorant the Serpent is the hero in this rendition.

    My question is why Satan is referred so little in OT and plays a critical role in NT ?

  • ZindagiNaMilegiDobaara

    So many scriptures are talking to me ever so clearer about God now. What was I thinking when I joined the cult ! Of course I did not have the luxury of the internet, a laptop at all, (yeah for some of us these are luxuries to have and to hold); so just could not do any research at all. Had to just stay put.

    Now that I have a little freedom and some partial luxuries, I am glad to learn things.

    Just a guess, Lost Adam,

    My question is why Satan is referred so little in OT and plays a critical role in NT ?

    The confrontation in Genesis with god's seed and Satan's seed did not begin until Jesus came to earth and Satan succeeded in having Jesus put to death (bruised in the heel). From then on it seemed more imporant.

    Satan's role in the Old Testament seems to be that of a prosecution attorney, nothing more then that, not some type of archenemy of a totally self absorbed egocentric Jehovah. Not all Christian believed that,, there were 2 schools of thought the Gnostics had a much different idea.
