That question was asked by an elderly brother who pioneered and he was a little senile too----He'd ask EVERY person in the Hall. It didn't matter whether they were elders, pioneers, old ones, young ones, new ones----everyone! He would even incorporate that question in his comments at the meetings!.......Good question that no one seemed to want to answer.
"Would You Agree With Me That Satan The Devil Is A BASTARD?"
Well, If Satan is a bastard than the legitimacy of all the angels are called into question. Satan received life from God just like they did.
A literal bastard has no control over his or her legal birth standing.
So what was his point?
I think either he just liked saying it for reaction or he believed it....I dunno know.
I think he just liked to say the word
Maybe the bro had been to rev gumby's church.
I never understood what fecate of fishes had to do with legitamicy. Bass Turd?
Sorry I'm so lame.
As far as I can tell from my reading (correct me if I'm wrong) the Hebrews did not have a Satan as part of their mythos until they were taken captive and then returned with exposure to the idea. The whole Ahura Mazda myth of the Babylonians embodies what followed:
In Persian belief, Ahura Mazdah ("Lord Wisdom") was the supreme god, he who created the heavens and the Earth, and another son of Zurvan. Atar, his son, battled Azhi Dahaka, the great dragon of the sky, and bound it in chains on a high mountain. The dragon was, however, destined to escape and destroy a third of mankind at the final reckoning, before it was slain. Ahura Mazdah was the god of prophetic revelation, and bore both Ahriman and Ormazd.
As leader of the Heavenly Host, the Amesha Spentas, he battles Ahriman and his followers to rid the world of evil, darkness and deceit. His symbol is the winged disc
I'm thinking here; bottom line: plagarism.
So, to answer that brother at the hall; the proper reply is:
Feel good, huh Blondie? Say it again, BASTARD! Yeahhhhhhhh
who is Satan ? ; a concept of "evil" developed by mankind and given human attributes ( the term "bastard"; or other definitions of the ultimate "evil")
How is this any different from the Greek and Roman Gods; also developed by mankind and given human attributes.
If there really ARE unseen forces of good and evil; I doubt they think anything like organized religion portrays them ( thank goodness for that!)
Who told the truth and who told the lies? Who's the real bastard?
(Genesis 3:4-7) 4
At this the serpent said to the woman: "YOU positively will not die. 5 For God knows that in the very day of YOUR eating from it YOUR eyes are bound to be opened and YOU are bound to be like God, KNOWING good and bad." 6 Consequently the woman saw that the tree was good for food and that it was something to be longed for to the eyes, yes, the tree was desirable to look upon. So she began taking of its fruit and eating it. Afterward she gave some also to her husband when with her and he began eating it. 7 Then the eyes of both of them became opened and they began to realize that they were naked. Hence they sewed fig leaves together and made loin coverings for themselves.
(Genesis 3:22-23) 22
And Jehovah God went on to say: "Here the man has become like one of us in knowing good and bad, and now in order that he may not put his hand out and actually take [fruit] also from the tree of life and eat and live to time indefinite,?" 23 . . .
