I have a friend that believes that God uses the devil to kill Christians when it's their time to come to heaven. I told her no, God doesn't need to use the devil. Please clarify this for me and give me scriptures to prove it to her. Thank you!

Yes and no. Satan does have power over death. It’s part of his dark empire. (Hebrews 2:14) 

God permitted the devil to be present in the Garden of Eden. Satan was the deceiver, who tempted Eve and indirectly Adam to sin. Their sin brought death upon us all. “…in Adam all die…” 1 Corinthians 15:22. “By […]

How powerful is Satan and his fallen angels? What abilities do they have?

Jesus never focused on the power of Satan and his fallen angels. If this were an important issue, Jesus would certainly have warned us! We know Satan works to oppose us through our fallen flesh; the present, evil world; and maneuvering forces to hurt us. We also know, “Satan disguises himself as an angel of […]

How can one differentiate between Angels of light and darkness? What are their characteristics?

The word "angel" in the Bible is translated from the Hebrew word "malawk" in the Old Testament and the Greek word "angelos" in the New. Both words mean "messenger."

Can Satan drive out Satan?

Yes, it is possible.  Satan can cast out Satan by promoting contradictory partial lies. His response to combat the legitimate increase of knowledge is to “transform” himself into an “angel of light.” 2 Corinthians 11:14-15, 3, 1 Corinthians 15:24-26, Matthew 7:22-23.  He disguises himself as a scientific atheist; a missionary of eternal torment; a "spiritual […]

Why are there so many different religions?

There are many religions because God is not presently trying to teach the world the truth. Jesus said He was not sent to convert the world. "That seeing they may see, and not perceive; and hearing they may hear, and not understand; lest at any time they should be converted, and their sins should be […]

Who created the doctrine of hell in which one suffers forever in flames? Was it Satan try to make God sound cruel?

When God placed Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden, He gave them a test of obedience in order to develop their characters. Simply put, the test stated that they could eat from all the trees but “from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil you shall not eat, for in the […]

Why did God create sin, if He is the creator?

God did not create sin; Lucifer did.

The Bible traces the origin of sin back to the Garden of Eden.

Genesis 1:26,27 “And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion…over all the earth…So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he […]

Did or didn't Satan fall in Genesis1:2 when "the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep"?

The darkness upon the earth in Genesis 1:2 is not referring to evilness. This verse provides a simple, accurate description of the forming of planet earth. In the beginning, the earth’s surface was dark covered with thick clouds. Light could not penetrate the thick covering around the planet. Therefore, the face of the earth was […]

If hell means grave in Hebrew, is Satan in a grave instead of a place where there is everlasting fire?

The word “Hell” (or Hebrew “Sheol”) in the Old Testament Hebrew does mean “Grave” (or destruction). 

Ecclesiastes 9:10, “Whatsoever thy hand findeth to do, do it with thy might; for there is no work, nor device, nor knowledge, nor wisdom, in the grave (Sheol), whither thou goest.”

This Old Testament scripture does support the Hebrew word grave […]
