    satan means the adversary and means anyone who is an enemy of God or the Israelites...never is the Devil referred to as the evil one...not until the advent of the New Testament and the twisting of Jewish understandings by the early church fathers did satan become an fallen angel from grace...don't believe the hype

    Jesus said "I saw Satan fall like lightning from heaven" (Luke 10:18).

    Satan certainly is refered to as a sort of 'force against' God in the Old Testament but he is definately refered to as a personal 'being' in several instances - not the least of which comes within the first few chapters of Genesis.

    Im not sure why you only selected the references where Satan is described as 'the force against'?

    The Ministry of Christ (The Second Adam) also begins with a personified Satan tempting Jesus.

    Far from 'twisting' - it quite the parallel wouldnt you agree?

    Skip, I think we have been over this before but... When the Owner of the Christian Hippies forum posts in the Christianity forum and in her post refers to God - we pretty much all presume which God she is refering too.

    Nobody was confused or offended.
    Neither would I be if I was in the Islam Thread and the owner of the 'Muslim Hippies' forum ....... you get the point.

    Anyyyyway,
    I was looking for Bree's forum just last night and was a little distraught. I figured we had all let it die out due to lack of contributions. Im guilty and will try and do better Bree :D

    LOL Brocktoon, no, Christian Hippies is alive and well. It has a new name now, called The Hallowed Tree. :) But it's still the same forum, just a different name!
