Oh, love the graffiti-like signatures from involved parties.

But, if some demon wants to barter with me and my soul is the bartering material, that reveals to me that soul does exist and that it would probably be in my best interest to keep it.... so no, I don't need soul selling on my list of crimes as well.


Good point.

Fuck would I sell my soul and for the record that whole "Better to Rule in Hell than serve in Heaven" only worked for Lucifer because he actually created Hell and became Satan? You relaly think you'd get the same treatment? No if anything you'll be a SLAVE of Hell.

Back on topic, my soul is my very existence, I would never sell it for nothing. Plus reaping too much from your Desires will inevitably lead to the corruption of your own soul regardless if you sell it or not, and I'm not willing to lower myself to a sin driven wreck.

I don't believe in a hell or a heaven (angels and devils too), so with that said, I won't sell my"soul" to anything or in exchange of something. (-__-")

I won't sell my soul to save a life (or lives) or the world. I have all the rights to be selfish. I only have one life to live. (-__-")

Aren't you kinda contradicting yourself there?

You don't believe in Heaven or Hell, hence I take it you don't believe you have a soul since souls are inheritely linked to Heaven and Hell aka. they go to either one of them when you die (let's ignore the whole Purgatory thing now). So... why not sell something, if you don't believe it exists, to gain something?

Of course, whole thing with a devil appearing before you should convince most people about existence of Hell and at the same time it's opposite, Heaven.

That's why the soul was double quoted. "soul"
I apologize for the lack of emphasis on my sarcasm. -_-"
And the only "devilish" creatures here on Earth are humans.

Well, according to legend the Faustian Pact a.k.a selling your soul to the devil has been present in the histories.

Here is an actual pact:

Same text, in full Latin:

Nos praepotens Lucifer, juvante Satan, Belzebub, Leviathan, Elimi,
atque Astaroth, allisque, hodie habemus acceptum pactum
foederis Urbani Grandieri qui nobis est. Et huic pollicemur
amorem mulierum, florem virginum, decus monacharum, honores, voluptates et opes.
Fornicabitur triduo; ebrietas illi cara erit. Nobis offerit semel
in anno sanguinis sigillum, sub pedibus conculcabit sacra ecclesiae et
nobis rogationes ipsius erunt; quo pacto vivet annos viginti felix
in terra hominum, et veniet postea inter nos maleficere Deo.
Factum in infernis, inter consilia daemonum.
Lucifer Belzebub Satanas
Astaroth Leviathan Elimi
Sigilla posuere magister diabolus et daemones principes domini.
Baalberith, scriptor.


Translation into English:

We, the influential Lucifer, the young Satan, Beelzebub, Leviathan, Elimi,
and Astaroth, together with others, have today accepted the covenant pact
of Urbain Grandier, who is ours. And him do we promise
the love of women, the flower of virgins, the respect of monarchs, honors, lusts and powers.
He will go whoring three days long; the carousal will be dear to him. He offers us once
in the year a seal of blood, under the feet he will trample the holy things of the church and
he will ask us many questions; with this pact he will live twenty years happy
on the earth of men, and will later join us to sin against God.
Bound in hell, in the council of demons.
Lucifer Beelzebub Satan
Astaroth Leviathan Elimi
The seals placed the Devil, the master, and the demons, princes of the lord.
Baalberith, writer.




other than this, here are some people who "allegedly" made a pact with the diablo...

Paganini
Urban Grandier
Jonathan Moulton
Robert Johnson (a jazz player)

well, the question is, would you sell your soul if this is actually true? for what purpose?

well, for me, i will... maybe because It's better to rule in hell, than to serve in heaven..

LoL.. well, ill kill the devil with the power/s he/she will endow me, and become the new overlord.. haha..

*P.S no wise-asses please if you are a wise-ass then im gonna F' you in the A'!*

if this is a dup mods, feel free to delete it...


looks like internetlish to me
