Christians love Satan

 Pretty interesting title isn’t it, but believe it or not, some Christians love the devil.  Why do I say this?  Well, from my experience, I find that many Christians are more eager to defend the existence of the devil than they are to defend God or Christ.  The second someone says they don’t believe in hell or the devil, many Christians flip out, they become red in the face – “How dare you not believe in the devil or hell!” they think to themselves.

I am always astonished at how ready people are to defend hell and the devil.  Believers can get too wrapped up in defending satan that they forget about the universal principles of the faith.  These “hell and brimstone” believers are difficult to reason with and are mostly the product of the previous generation.

A simple question believers need to ask themselves: What’s more important, the teachings of Jesus or the acts/existence of the devil?

Let’s face it, many people tend to have infatuations with the “bad guy”. There is some kind of draw in “knowing your enemy” that it sometimes interferes with knowing your Champion.  Frankly, I am not overly concerned with evil/devil/hell etc.  Giving these things attention is only taking away from the total amount of attention that I could be giving God.

are you someone that defends the concepts of satan and hell more than God and His greatness?  If so, I would suggest re-evaluating the strength and knowledge of your faith.  Are you obsessed with “Armageddon”?  If so, it’s time for you to open the Bible back up and start to dwell on Christ’s teachings.  Yes, He talks about his return – but He also talks about a wealth of other topics that I guarantee no one has come close to perfecting.  In other words, start improving your life the way Jesus wanted you to; be aware that He could return any day (every single generation has believed that they were the “last”), but as Christians we have a greater responsibility to learn and emulate Jesus.

  1. Thank you.
    A much needed correction.
    Let us keep our eyes focused on God.

  2. Why can’t we just believe what God’s word says? Some scriptural attention is given to Satan as cautionary material. By far the most attention is dedicated to living in Christ and being Christ to our world.
