The Bible’s Definition of the Devil.

Eve declared she had been deceived by the serpent. Man is still deceived by his sinful human nature that is adversarial to God and to eternal life. A merciful God would never have us live eternally in a sinful state! This treacherous teaching that God makes mistakes and cannot control His heavenly host โ€” Not true. This study presents four case studies to demonstrate what the phrase satan and devil really mean.

Summary

The content explores the biblical definition of the devil, addressing common misconceptions and examining key passages. It argues against the notion of the devil as a supernatural being, instead interpreting references to Satan as allegorical or symbolic of human sinfulness. The narrative analyses various biblical passages to illustrate this perspective, highlighting the role of human pride and sin in opposition to God’s will. It concludes with the assertion that salvation comes through Jesus Christ, who overcame sin and offers eternal life to believers.
