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?
