Overview

Does the Bible reveal that God created a devil?
Will Satan and his demons torture the wicked forever in a burning hell?
Christianity asserts these teachings are found in the Bible. The Bible itself, however, reveals something different!
The trouble with the whole Devil question is that Christianity's view of "Satan" is more colored by the views of the Essenes and John Milton's Paradise Lost than by any reading of the Bible itself. The Essenes' view of punishment of the ungodly in the eternal fires of hell, a hell run by the chief evil spirit with his angels, is precisely that of Christianity today. However, nowhere in the Bible does it say anything of the sort.

    Thought Provoking

    Not what the title makes it out to seem, but thought provoking just the same. It provokes me to do some research, to actually do the work to look it up and determine for myself what I think. I like books like that.

    Interesting Read - Provokes Thought

    I enjoy books that provoke thought. I rate as only a 4 out of 5 primarily because it really doesn't prove all of what it says or at least insinuates that is does. Even so, it does open the mind to consider other things and an alternate view of what we may not have considered before.
