    Blah blah blah. I wonder if Red riding hood could have really been tricked by that wolf? I mean, it was wearing her Grandmothers clothes, but how could she have not seen that the face was different.....

    Wow, who`da thunk it ... a proponent of one religion who thinks that other religions are wrong about some religious concept. Cuz that`s NEVER happened before in the entire history of religion.

    No, wait ... that IS the entire history of religion.

    @Patchouly

    Xians believe that they truly understand the OT and that Jesus through Paul`s words stating that Christ fulfilled and ended the OT laws. The problem is that the NT has no real basis in the Jewish faith and trying to incorporate the OT and NT causes a lot of confusion for Xians.
    Now in the context of this Rabbi`s interpretation, the mythology of the fruit of the tree of knowledge of good and evil makes sense: it is the knowledge of both good and evil is what gives man free will. Believing the devil possessing one to do evil leaves an existential dilemma for the Xians. If you do evil then its not your fault because the devil made you do it. We know today this is ridiculous but for so long people committed atrocities and got away with it by blaming a supernatural source.
    I think Xians need to hear this and thankfully some Rabbis today are not afraid to speak up, yah know a holocaust would do that.

    llaa: That is utterly ridiculous; a generalization at least, if not based solely on prejudices and biases. Do you want to know what a Christian does? Here, i`ll tell you; a true Christian strives to live out the Lord`s command that is basically "Trust in God and Love one another". Everything else in the scriptures are there to help support that command.

    What`s ridiculous?

    I bet you follow the scripture`s that advise not not listen to and shut the mouths of the Jewish circumscribed peoples. Not giving heed to Jewish fables. Or that "the Cretians are always liars, evil beasts, slow bellies".

    Are those the scriptures you follow?

    God, Satan, Angels.... as if one made up superfriend has more credibility than another? I believe the Wonder Twins are the true answer to salvation.

    The historical prejudice is the Xian faith. It is a cooked up faith based on anti-jewish prejudices. Much of it written and compiled after the sacking of Jerusalem and the Jewish diaspora but none of this is mentioned in the NT. FYI, the Colosseum in Rome was funded using the gold from second temple`s melted menorah and other temple spoils.

    The point is, the devil, magic jesus, jews are evil, shaitan: they`re all based on twisted versions of Judaism created by the ethnic conquerors of the land. A Xian pastor will not tell you this, but it is true.

    BTW, life is way to complicated to love one another. Sorry but I cant love or see redemption within a child murderer or serial rapist.

    Which one agape or raheb? Chakam or sophia?

    Check it out for yourself, read your bible from the OT to the NT (try reading in Hebrew and Greek, its fun!) and ask yourself honestly if one is the same as the other, or what else your faith taught you that is not mentioned in the Christian bible, preexistence, holy trinity, etc...

    I really enjoyed this.
    I was baptized Greek Orthodox, raised by one spiritual and one temporal atheist, practiced Tibetan Buddhism and converted to Judaism at the age of sixteen. (Damned adolescent rebellion)
    Even though I no longer practice, there is something that continually attracts me to this faith.

    So basically, the only people who lay claim to the existence of Satan are either Judeo-Christian or Muslim.

    Good. It`s your Hell, you rot in it and have fun doing it.

    This discussion of devils and gods has precisely the same amount of relevance to reality as a comparison of the heroes in Marvel and DC comics.

    They`re all fictional characters.
