I heard a very interesting thing last night..i think it fits in with the Corru-ption and the fact that it's Cain killing Able and the fact its easier for them to get suduced by Satan:
"The closer you come to God the closer you are to the Devil's temptations"

I found it interestin.



Nonononononononono. How does that even make sense? "the closer you come to God the closer you are to the Devil's temptations" ... what the hell. Come on man, God and the devil are on two severe ends of spectrums. Your goal being the god side. No one wants to be in pure isolation for the rest of eternity.

okay then....
Right, the quote was written like that but maybe it needs elaborating on.

The closer you come to God the more you become a target for Satan's temptations. The more you turn to God, the more Satan will do to you to turn you away.

I guess its the same with Job, he was one of God's devoted and Satan put him through so much suffering so he lost everything. But he still didn't renounce God. I'm just saying, since Job was such a devoted man to God, he got everything thrown at him by Satan.

So the point I said was right!

haha, no darlin. You weren't right.

Being closer to God makes you stronger, and able to ignore anything that affects your life negativly.

Lucifer was the prominent archangel in heaven, Before he felt the need to rebel against God. When he, Lucifer was cast out of heaven, along with a third of the heavenly host, and came to live on the world.

Hey...I was right!
I said you become a target for Satan..Like Job!
I didn't mention anything about you become less or more stronger!

And I already know about Satan being the Archangel in Heaven!

You can't honestly believe that you can have a positive without a negative? You can't have all the goods in life, without working for them.
Job had everything removed from him. He started that story with thousands of camels and sheep and whatever else. He was wealthy. So Satan decided to test his faith by removing everything.
But Job loved God.
The point of Job's story was to deepen your faith. To show the extent of God's omnipotence.

They wanted to show you the reults of questioning Gods actions.

Something that also works well with this whole debate, the book of Job was supposed to make you understand God's justice

Man, it doesn't matter if you're "targeted" or not.

Canada is a target for the middle east. It doesnt' matter that they aren't mad at us right now..

Hell you're a target for me, but I'm not tempting you.


Remember that heaven and hell aren't literal. And neither is the forces of God and the Devil.

The people aren't literal, the fear, it's quite real.

Why do your parents tell you not to touch a burning pot?
