One thing all religions have in common is the devil, the one that desperately wants and plans the downfall of mankind.
According to Christianity, the devil was an ungrateful angel who tried to take over God’s throne, and now he walks the earth only to kill, steal and destroy.
Anyways, according to an article by wired.com, it might be interesting to know that God’s kill count is 227,037% higher than Satan’s.

So the narrative that Satan is the villain might just be propaganda and since the Bible is a one-sided collection of stories the demonization of the devil might just be propaganda. The character of the devil might not even exist at all, he might just also be created so as make humans feel they need protecting from someone who only God can destroy. Another funny fact is since the beginning of time and the beginning of the struggle of man, the devil never died, he’s still allegedly actively interfering with our lives.

Now the question is, if For God so loved the world that he gave his only son, why do people still die and why is he planning to eternally torture many more? I mean the concept of hell. Where people who don’t believe in Jesus will suffer eternal damnation, it doesn’t matter whether they were good on earth, once they die, they go to hell. It’s synonymous with burning someone from having a different view from yours. And we are supposed to turn the other cheek when our neighbor slaps us?

The writer of this did a good job. Thumbs up.
However, this is one topic that could be taboo in the Nigerian environment, so it’s important to tread softly!
Not gonna air my own view. Lol
😂😂😂 very very softly!
Well… I think one of the greatest gift from God to man is the Gift of CHOICE. You have the ability to choose the path you wish which makes you responsible for it’s consequences. He gave his only son that whoever believes in (Chooses) his son shall have “eternal life” which is life in heaven. hell was created for the devil and his demons so if you choose the devil you are also responsible for it’s consequences. Even if you have chosen wrongly, you have your entire life to make corrections. Even the angels don’t have that gift of choice,… Read more »
I love this response. You cannot hang on the fence, you are either for him or against him. Despite his proclamation of his love, the condition to making heaven is to believe and follow his ways. Just like a father saying to his son, ‘I love you so much, but you need to make a first class in your course of study to inherit my mansion’. Sure you get the gist already.
I find this article really distasteful. Is it supposed to be an apologia for the devil or what?
Everybody now tries to question things they have no business questioning because they want to be seen as critical thinkers.
No one says it’s an apologia for the devil. And besides why should matters like this be secluded from questioning? Didnt God give us brains so we could use them?
I recall when I was following a particular thread on twitter where someone asked, “which Bible character will you like to meet?” and someone replied, Lucifer. As usual, some people started attacking him but his stance was that, he would want to hear Lucifer’s side of the story which to me seems quite valid. In the law court, every witness including the criminal is given a fair hearing. How come its only one narrative that is being peddled? As usual, a lot of things don’t make sense… One gets the glory, the other gets the blame.. Someone must bear the… Read more »
This comment is just crisp! Crisp! There’s this documentary I watched on Netflix, ‘Jesus Code’…its just an eye opener. There it had the Gospel of Judas, the gospel of Mary Magdalene and many more. So many sides the bible never made mention of. You will love the character of Judas if you watch the documentary.
I saw it, and I took a screenshot of it from your WhatsApp story. 😁
But seriously though…
