6 thoughts on “Resist the devil (NOT LITERALLY) prt I

  1. Whatever vice or sin we have in our life is a beacon for Satan, calling him after us to pursue us and drag us deeper to our death. Things will only get worse the longer we live in our sin. Eventually, it leads to not only a literal death but eternal destruction.

  2. Although it is true that doing wrong eventually leads us to a box canyon, you should never think the bible is teaching perfectionism. That we all die is certain but the love we leave behind we take forward therefore a focus on the devil and sin is a poor place to put ones attention. As far as eternal destruction all fall short of the glory of God and I prefer not to focus on who deserves what in the afterlife that’s a fools game.

  3. When literary and poetic devices are translated and interpreted as though literal meanings were intended from the start, the entire message can be warped beyond recognition.

  4. I will agree when you say “When literary and poetic devices are translated and interpreted as though literal meanings were intended” although it is meant to imply something for in the end this is the purpose of the written and spoken word.
