Satan isn't an actual entity, it is an archetype for that which limits and restricts consciousnesses and self-awareness

If you read the Old Testament, you find Satan is not some being who is opposed to God.  His name simply means "The Accuser."  He is like the prosecuting attorney of Heaven -- not opposed to God, but merely the prosecutor of humans.

God is not God. Satan will have to forgive himself.

The were bros a long time ago. Then Satan was always getting of in his bidness and that ended the friendship. You know how it is. Its best to just part ways when the friendship becomes sour.

Because Satan doesn't want God's forgiveness.

God needs Satan to exist in order to exist Himself.

We need Darkness in order to be able to see the True Light.

God's true identity would not be discernable without these omnipresent juxtapositions.

In other words, you can't have the Yang without the Yin, brother.

Well, I played lots of D&D recently, and I came up with the following philosophy:

Satan is actually an agent of God, and every man, who believes in good but chooses to do evil. Good cannot exist without evil, so that's why the universe needs Satan. We can feel good doing good/opposing evil. Even if we doesn't believe in God we can be good or evil people.

So God actually forgave Satan, because he just doing his job, doing what he is best at, tormenting men, so they can be good, fighting evil.

Edit: I forgot to add, that God forgives everybody who believe him. Because if You believe somebody, who is the source of everything, who has power over everything, then it's natural that he takes the blame for every sin, even the ones that you committed. According to this system.

It's fantasy I know, but at least it makes sense... :cool:


--------------------
So dreaming let's you know reality exists.



I don't belive. I fear.
