Who has killed more people: god or the devil?
« on: July 23, 2018, 11:09:48 PM »
so who has terminated more human lives? Satan or our father? The Old Testament has several accounts of our good loving lord killing what I assume would be our ancestors. The great flood being the biggest slaughter of course. The devil? The evil one? Demon No.1? How many has he been responsible for? And whatever the amount of human wipeouts he is witnessed/reported to have carried out,there is of course the undeniable fact: the god of all powerful love 💖 allowed old nick to carry these deaths out. So what do you think the dead count wil be if we chalk up god against the devil?

A pointless meaningless question.

God is the source of all life, he gives it and he takes it away.

All life begins because God wills it and ends because God wills it.

im Guessing by your response the answer is god. I have come back to Christianity after several lost years away and have many questions,especially biblical. I want to be a better person and grow closer to the lord so I am studying the good book and asking fellow Christians for things I?m not sure about. To be told I asked a ?pointless meaningless question? and given such an absolute answer without explanation is quite negative and upsetting.

You have to ask questions to find answers. Who has the keys to death and hell? Jesus. Satan tries to kill, steal and destroy. However, as Jesus has the keys,  can anyone die without Him knowing?

Thanks MG for a more encouraging answer 🙂👍 so what are your thoughts on who is the biggest human killer? You are right I?m only asking these questions for answers and I?m here asking dedicated mature Christians not those who just want to write off all religion as ?********? if you get what I mean

Its not an easy question to answer as one could answer either way and be correct.

How can God destroy those who are already dead ?  Revelation 11:18

Indeed some are twice dead Jude 1:12


I remember a preach saying "anointing is God giving an ability" as God gives someone an ability [anointing]

Yet there are many in the world who have God given abilities [I have a song resounding in my head from a God given ability - sung by a person who could be twice dead]

In the same way you have "a good person" in others eyes..

Indeed the rich young ruler could have been seen as a good person  -  as he obeyed and kept all observations  - see ; Luke 18:18-30 - Jesus was basically telling this guy "hey you have your faith in your money" go worship your money. [the  rich young ruler probably had many God given talents 2given by God "] but who did he use them for ?


I imagine this rich young ruler sent many others to their own death by following him...

The same thing happens today with fame academy and X Factor..

[it is an image that many follow]

Given abilities by God  - but without having God ...

satan is the great deceiver and will emulate and copy God and this causes even more confusion ..

Those whom God loves - He is jealous of - their was no other nation like Israel [remember that all other neighbours were His enemies]

And you were once an enemy of God - alienated from Him - Colossians 1:21

But through  the grafting in and grace of God you now call Him "Abba Father"  Ephesians 2:9

Hi,

If you ignore all the why?s, and talk about numbers only, God wins hands down, with millions, as opposed to 8 for Satan, 7 of which were Jobs lot, which God was cool with.  There?s a lot more to it than just numbers though, keep asking, keep reading.
