Default God and devil ?

Do you believe in god and devil ? Do you think they are 2 different entities ? Or is it one god who is half good and half evil ?

I don't believe in neither. If we are talking strictly about the character of God and the Devil and their story God is a Power hungry narcissistic mass murdering maniac with a rage problem who turned is followers against Satan because he was thinking differently.

There is no reason to believe in either. Especially as the role and purpose of God and the devil changes depending on the story you are currently reading, meaning what religion you are believing in.

I believe in God but I don't believe in the Devil as he is portrayed because he is a human construct that was a late addition to the Bible. I believe in fallen angels, though, because otherwise I wouldn't have any friends

i believe there is something beyond the reality that we experience while alive, but i don't believe there there is one god who fighting with a devil for the souls of people. seems rather silly to me, kinda like how a few hundred years ago people believed witches were real.

No. I think that the idea of some sort of cosmic battle between the Master of Light (and his minions) vs the Master of Evil (and his minions) was a way for ancient civilizations to explain how the world worked. I think the whole concept is fatally flawed.

I've always taken issue with the teachings of exactly who and what the Devil was in relation to God because, ultimately, if we are to believe that the Devil was an evil entity that was banished from heaven for disobedience and corrupting God's perfect Creation, why would the much more powerful God not then correct all that has been corrupted and wipe evil from the universe? What is the point of leaving it and letting your creations 'choose for themselves?

God and the Devil work great as metaphorical analogies for the purest good and most corrupted evil things in order to establish us as somewhere in the middle but as real entities, they are extremely flawed.

I'm not sure whether it's more frightening to think that true evil requires the intervention of a supernatural force or whether that kind of evil is simply inherent in humans. I've never been one to believe that there's some kind of evil force out there; people who commit horribly evil acts are just people. In some ways, that is more disturbing.

But the "problem of evil" is one of the biggest questions that religions attempt to answer. There isn't one clean answer to it either.

Because that’s the price of free will.

ahh, the myth of free will.

i guess, that once was made up because this way God can't be blamed for all the existing mess. And cleverly, you can always blame individuals for it. Probably a reason for the confusing bigotry of our days.


btw: there's not such a thing like good. therefore, evil doesn't exist.
But maybe you can use funtion and malfunction instead
