The Devil-as-myth view is Satan’s right-hand punch. If that one doesn’t get you, then watch out for his left hook. The left-hand attack moves the disinformation to the opposite extreme. If Satan can’t get you to ignore him by denying his very existence, he will cunningly lead you to attribute power to him far beyond what he actually possesses. He will seek to persuade you that he is virtually equal to God.

Dualism, as a philosophy and a religion, has vied with Christianity from the beginning. Dualism affirms that the universe is the staging area, the combat zone, for two equal and opposite beings who struggle with each other eternally.

Satan is falsely described in terms of omniscience, omnipresence, and the power to do actual, not merely counterfeit, miracles. He is given attributes orthodox Christianity labels as the incommunicable attributes of God and he is assigned power over nature that rivals the Creator’s.

The Bible teaches that Satan is a finite spiritual being. He is temporal and created. In a word, he is a creature. He is more powerful that we, but he is not omnipotent. He is not immutable, as God is. Indeed, Satan’s mutability is profound. His most obvious mutation is his fall. He was created a good angel. He fell from his original righteousness and is now totally malevolent.

But isn't this whole Satan thing entirely overblown?

As you recall, it was recently explained to us at considerable length that God creates evil and is the source of evil in this world, that God creates good but also creates all of the evil in the world.

It wasn't clearly explained to us, if the Father really is literally the source of all evil, how this affects the nature of Jesus. Because scripture does teach that the Son of God shares immutably all of the attributes of the Father. So an Evil Father can only have begotten an Evil Son. Which would make Jesus Christ an Evil Savior if He truly is the Son of God.

So Satan is revealed as pretty much redundant, small potatoes really. Satan and his fallen angels can only be bit players at best. Because God is the real source of evil in this world, not Satan. Or so we were told.

Apparently this is quite the hot topic to chat about over tea down at the Sunday afternoon bible study with the local monsignor and learned laity. Anyone who might disagree with the idea that God is the author of evil is just some uninformed ignoramus who lacks any kind of spiritual discernment or knowledge of scripture.

That's why I have been nationally or internationally known in four different areas.
