    Cool Does the Devil Exist?

    The main reasons why I believe that Devil exists is due to simple logic and laws of probability.

    (this sentence may read funny but that doesnt discont the fact that there may be more than 1 Devil or that its 1 Devil who various aspects appeal to different sects)
    .. this Caketin is full of little spiders and watermelon seeds.....

    ..Chess is all about fear and psychology

    ..Chess is like an exam..... you havent studied for

    ..If you're good at Chess it means you are very intelligent and could potentialy do great things
    ..... but that you might have wasted that playing way too much chess

    No debate biblically

    OK, biblically there is no debate. Many passages of Scripture affirm that the Devil exists.
    God exists. Short and to the point.

    A good question! It is too long to read the whole DGE thing. Part of the answer is that this (DGE) is a question which has interested people throughout human history, and this thread started some time ago. Maybe in a few years time, this thread will also have a large number of posts as this question has also occupied many minds throughout history.

    In contrast to god, the devil encounters no problem of evil.

    I remember a saying that goes, "the greatest trick the devil ever pulled convincing the world that he doesn't exist". From the movie "The Usual Suspects".

    Seems to be almost as many different takes on this question as there are christians. The old fashioned view is that there is fire and brimstone and wailing and gnashing of teeth and all those good things. However, new age christians are saying things like hell is simply eternal existence in the absence of god. I just find it an interesting question how christians here conceptualise hell.
