    2 Samuel 24

    24:1 And again the anger of the LORD was kindled against Israel, and he moved David against them to say, Go, number Israel and Judah.

    1 Chronicles 21

    1And Satan stood up against Israel, and provoked David to number Israel.


    Did the famine last 3 years or 3? does 600 gold now equal 50 silver? Whom did he buy it from? Were ther 1,570,000 or 1,3000,000?

    Me thinks if the bible is any indication, it's not Satan we should fear.

    Get used to the probability that there is no God

    And if there is, if you use what is taught in Church (God made us humans in his image) than we probably have a good argument for getting out of eternal damnation.

    The SaTan does exist, but not in the sense that most Christians and Catholics think. He's not so much a killer as he is Heaven's District Attorney. If you do something that goes against God, the SaTan's job is to go back and tell God what you did.

    He's also the Angel of Death by the way, and everyone knows that the wages of sin is death.

    And........if you accept one, then you've got to accept the other.

    But.........it's not so much that the demons are the ones doing things to humans, it's our own animal nature that we cave in to, which causes us to cause pain to others, which, if you think about it, is the true measure of evil. Does it hurt and cause death or not?

    When we are God's, He inspires us, strengthens us, helps us to do good, that's what being His is all about, asking and receiving help to follow Him.

    All God has to do is remove His hand from our lives and we are more susceptible to the influence of the enemy.

    God never tempts us to do evil. But when He turns His back on our sins, His strength which helps us do good is removed, and just like the Bible says, the enemy is at the door like a roaring lion. So it was with David.

    Both verses are correct.

    The rest of your questions make no sense to me. No clue what you're talking about.
