Emcee,frances008,
if you choose, continue to assume & don't bother with what the Bible actually says.
Say the word & I will not waste our time with Bible references.
---Chip on 4/24/08


Frances008::Thank goodness its just your opinion or I could be consigned to sit on a lotus leaf in the middle of a pond surrounded by croakers!.
---Emcee on 4/24/08


IMHO, Emcee may be in the wrong Church but he understands the things of God. It is good to see how true Christians can unite when there is a need.
---frances008 on 4/24/08


To All,
I will leave this place if you are not interested in discussing the Bible with Bible reference & learning / teaching Bible & not opinion or theory. If you want me to leave, just say it.
---Chip on 4/24/08


Good news: satan has graduated, he no longer is on his belly, but now satan is on his face while we Holy Spirit filled Christians easily trample upon his loser head. So if you want to get a message to the loser, just write it on the bottom of your shoe.
---Eloy on 4/24/08




Just continue to argue with yourself, Chip. You are a freemason. I don't talk to those who defend freemasonry.
---frances008 on 4/24/08


Chip it is also a sin to forcefit a scenario in which you insist on performing under the guise of learning. Genesis3:14 Clearly states this for all to understand except "You" who insist by taking the side of the deciever Call him by what ever name that Pleases you: God and the word called Him serpent Satan and I concur with millions of others.since serpents dont talk to this day. It had to be the DEVIL satan Lucifer in disguise.The fallen angel.

Satan was the spirit in the garden which is spoken of as being a serpent later on, as punishment.
---frances008 on 4/23/08

How did satan get to the garden without God knowing it? You won't find satan anywhere in Genesis so God didn't address satan being in the garden. How do you know what you said is true? Why do you believe satan was in the garden of Eden? God said that the beast of the field talked to Eve, do you disagree with God?
---Chip on 4/23/08


Emcee,
There is no shame in learning, only in refusing to admit that you were not taught correctly, confused or misinterpreting Gods word & allowing some reader to also believe the misinterpretation that you presented.
---Chip on 4/23/08




Chip::Silence is golden as I exercise that right.
---Emcee on 4/23/08


When and where did I say Satan outsmarted God? Satan rebelled and got humans to rebel against God and is still doing it to this minute. Many millions are being deceived by doctrines of devils over the television (New Age Oprah Winfrey). Churches are apostate. God rewarded and blessed woman because it was a woman who bore Jesus Christ, the Savior of mankind. So God has a means of sorting out those who believe in Him and those who Don't. God wins.
---frances008 on 4/23/08


Emcee,frances008, You can speculate & give satan the power, praise & glory. You can say that satan outsmarted God, got into the garden without God knowing, however that is only your opinion. I choose to believe God when he said that the beast of the field talked to Eve.
---Chip on 4/23/08


Emcee, Numbers22:28 "And the Lord opened the mouth of the ass, and she said unto Ba'laam, what have I done to thee, thou hast smitten me these three times"?

God can even make a bush burn & talk.

Yes, God was talking to an animal, & punished it as an animal would be punished, not as an animal that was used by an angel and certainly not as an angel.
---Chip on 4/23/08


Chip, God talks to us in our language. We talk about all the days of a person's life. We don't understand God's language. Satan was the spirit in the garden which is spoken of as being a serpent later on, as punishment.
---frances008 on 4/23/08


The history of mankind, which is what the Bible is, is a history of rebellion against God that started in the Garden when Man was offered to become a god, without any conditions. Just eat the forbidden fruit. Eve took up the offer and ever since that time mankind has rebelled against God, finally in these days trying, very ill-advisedly, to 'destroy' or disprove God. Yet as they do so they fulfill every single prophecy in the Bible.

I believe the Bible to be literal. If someone else wants to believe it is metaphorical, I don't think it would condemn them to the pits of Hell. The danger is if you do not believe the Truth of the Very Clear Warning. Disobey God and you will regret it. I find that a literal interpretation fits in with the rest of the Bible which is proven by archeological findings.
---frances008 on 4/23/08


Chip::Have I heard of a talking Donkey ?YES on National TV Francisthe talking Mule.If you cant see Satan in Genesis then Chip you are the only one in the whole world who cant.Almighty God was talking to who in Gen3:14 who tempted eve?Goodbye chip.
---Emcee on 4/22/08


Today he roams about seeking whom he may devour, like a roaring lion.
He's also the prince of the air, meaning he has some authority in the air space above the earth. No doubt he was in Phoenix, AZ last night putting on another show.
---lisa on 4/22/08


Emcee, heard of a talking donkey?
Gen 3 "Now the serpent(literal=deceiver) was more subtil than any beast of the field which the Lord hath made" (Reference to an animal)
Why would God punish an angel (spirit)with physical things? Eat dust(angels don'teat),on you're belly(spirit=no body)all the days of thy life(angels live forever).
How could a created angel do anything without God giving it power & permission?? Where do you find satan in Genesis? Where do you find devil in Genesis?

Chip::Are you defending Satan?I have yet to see Flying walking snakes.READ Gen3:14 if you need proof.
---Emcee on 4/22/08


Satan is an angel, spirit, he has no "belly". Satan was never told to go on his belly.
Gen 3 "Now the serpent(literally=deceiver)was the most cunning of the BEAST of the field". Not satan, BEAST of the field.
---Chip on 4/22/08


This is a very intriguing question. Off the top of my head I would say yes, but we understand he can assume many different forms and shapes. Even becoming an angel of light. So I guess the answer is no.
---mima on 4/22/08


My dear friend, the curse was placed on the snake. For goodness sakes. Satan is a person and a spirit and he is mean and very busy destroying lives ,nations, not to mention every bodies minds except mine.

Today satan is under our feet. He's a defeated foe. "For this purpose was the Son of God manifest, to DESTROY the works of the evil one."
However, Christians still yield to his temptations and he goes from being under our authority to out of our authority when we yield to his tempations.
---Donna9759 on 5/16/07


Donna9759, Very well said! Amen.
---Mrs._Morgan on 10/17/06


I agree with you, Jack.
---Kay on 10/16/06


"** Satan was told that he had to crawl on his belly and eat dust. How is that so today?**

It was the SERPENT who was condemned to crawl on his belly.

Most snakes to this day have vestigal legs, but inside their bodies."--Jack.

Why did it take someone so long to say that?

However Jack, I don't know what you are trying to say about that story being figurative. Some of the conversation (God's) was figurative but the events literally happened.

I believe Jack has a point as there a lot of 2legged ones creeping around.
---Emcee on 10/16/06


The Serpent was the closest thing to a human an animal could be. He walked, talked, reasoned; he was handsome. Satan used this link to cripple man's relationship with God through seduction, lying, and usurping God's position. For that, God made him (the serpent)appear as a snake. Satan simply moved on to inhabit others who would let him.
---mikefl on 10/16/06


"Jack" What do you have that you did not get from the Lord???

Not everyone is as bright as you!

Count your blessing!

mima, (2.) brother mima,see: (Isaiah 65:25)"The wolf and the lamb shall feed together, and the lion shall eat straw like the bullock: and dust shall be the serpent's meat. They shall not hurt nor destroy in all my holy mountain, saith the LORD." Mima, snakes don't have a soul anyway, and I won't be feeling sorry for them during that time, no, not at all!

mima , I find it interesting that even during the 1,000 year reign of Christ on earth(when the curse will be lifted off the earth) that snakes will still have to "crawl on their belly", all the other animals will be liberated.
---Mrs._Morgan on 10/16/06


** Satan was told that he had to crawl on his belly and eat dust. How is that so today?**

It was the SERPENT who was condemned to crawl on his belly.

Most snakes to this day have vestigal legs, but inside their bodies.

And I wish people could tell the difference between the didactic passages of the Bible, and the poetic and allegorical and figurative parts, instead of being so literalistic with passages that are clearly the last two.
---Jack on 10/16/06


Ever play a checker game from both sides of the board? God is the game and the devil is the player, it doesn't matter which side of the board he stands on it's always a puzzle. One way or another he's always a loser.
Satan goes to the throne too (Rev.12:10) and he tells the truth, (really to his shame; means he knows the truth and won't do it) and for playin both sides of the board he's the lowest of the low. He better than a multitude knew better.
---Pharisee on 10/16/06


God is not the author of confusion, but satan is. I'm sure you've heard the stories of demon possessed people slithering on the ground like snakes. He can shift his shape. I personally believe that all alien sightings, ufo's, are the enemy's schemes, tricks.
