Versions of Satan
Posted 7/4/10
In Christianity, we see the ultimate source of evil called Satan. In Islam, we see a djinn named Shaytan who was made to be as he is. In Judaism, we have an accuser ordained by God to test man. In Theistic Satanism, we have Baphomet, the mother of Jehovah and creator of all. That's just to name a few.

So which do you believe to be the real Satan?

The Satan of Christianity comes from the ancient foe of Ahura Mazda in the Zoroastrian religion: Ahriman, from whom, we also get the aforementioned Shaytan.


Interestingly enough, they also created an apocalypse myth similar to the Christians.

To learn more, go to Google and type in Zoroastrianism or visit your nearest public library.

There are many versions of Satan just as there are many versions of every other mythical being thought up by humans. It's nothing new or special.

The muslims arenj't worshipping this allah god guy. They are worshippin Satan himself. Complicated but true. The true religioin is Christianity? Question should be which is the true denomination? We may never know. It is why I just follow jesus through the new testament in the KJV

Satan, like the God-father figure, the Earth Mother-figure, Mary and Jesus, &c. are just archetype ingrained into us by our Cave-dwelling forefathers when we were all still hairy semi-apes in the middle of Africa.

That is rather presumptuous of you, innit?

Suppose, not saying that this is true, that you died and then went to heaven. Only, in heaven, the God that you believe in isn't there, but, Allah, the Merciful, Benevolent, &c., with his slew of prophets, Jesus sitting back and talking amicably with Mahomet while they enjoy their throng of Virgins. That is to say, suppose you are wrong--have you ever considered thus?

As a Christian I believe what the Bible says about satan. I believe satan is a fallen angel and an enemy of God and His children. I believe that satan is the great deceiver and father of lies as the Bible says. I don't think satan is some red guy with horns and a pitch fork who entices people to malevolent mischief as the media would like push. I think he is the most evil of all evil beings and has destruction and wickedness of the highest degree on his mind.

Yet Satan keeps Christianity in business.

Actually, that is not mentioned anywhere in the Bible--it was actually born from Jewish Apocrypha literature, was basically adopted by the Jesusites for truth.

He sounds like a scapegoat to me no offense...

At first, I kind of confused in the versions I heard about him. He was described as a snake then later etc and etc. Versions vary from different sources.

I think the very famous one I know is the one that bears the mark of 666 or I guess it was discovered to be 616, whichever the real mark I don't care or whatsoever. The beast or Satan they say carries the mark if I were not mistaken. He were to be released during the end of times...
