It has been a while since I have been online, and I miss the opportunity to express my humble opinion. On the subject of God versus Satan. I grew up being taught that to by living your personal life based on the ten simple laws related to basic respect of other people who happen to be alive at the same time as you. Heaven awaits.
Without the dark side of man’s behavior which we hear and see on a daily basis. The act of being good would not make any sense without bad to measure it against. God tossed Satan, and his angels out of heaven because of his bad behavior. Why not destroy him? Life is not perfect the is no absolute perfection in our understanding of the world we live in.
None of us are perfect but we all have the choice to get as close to that point as humanly possible.
