Was the truth about God changed in the past by the Devil to confuse and cause conflict for humankind forever?

If I were the devil, I would kill you tongue.gif JK Maybe, it's always a possibility.  I don't think he has though, otherwise there'd probably be a bunch of *real* contradictions in the Bible.

TD, just playing along with the contradiction premis:  the NT would not be full of contradictions to discredit if if the entire NT was the work of the devil!  christians say that a false prophet would be loved and adored, people would worship him, etc.  Sounds just like how people treated jesus.  

So the answer is to decieve is to provide a false prophet that will lead people the way the pied piper led the rats to their doom.

"the devil works in mysterious ways"... sorry, thats "the lord works in mysterious ways" (remeber i classify them as two faces of the same entity)...

i don't think jesus intended to deceive anybody, but:

either he could have been deceived by a "big nasty" - remember this is all hypothetical both in the sense of i don't think a "godly voice talked to him", and i don't have any clue what jesus was thinking or "hearing" (supernatural or not).

or

the people that followed him were decieved by this "big nasty", which led to the "false idolatry" and deification of jesus (remember my view is that jesus was only a man, and a philosopher) - again this is all hypothetical.

Oh man, if I were the devil I would have an absolute blast.

Since evil is absolutely necessary, I would have no remorse creating destruction and mayhem.. but only enough to make myself know of course.   whistling2.gif

If I were the devil, I would make people write books with beliefs systems in them (Bible, Koran, Torah etc ...). After this, I would just sit back and laugh.  thumbsup.gif

Any belief is a self protecting device through which the mind disconnects itself from truth. Only a mind that is free from any anticipation, hope, and belief can act justly and in alliance with truth and reality.

Most people are bothered by those passages of Scripture they do not understand, but the passages that bother me are those I do understand.

I know it's cliche, but if I were the devil I'd do everything in my power to convince the world that I do not exist.  People would then live their lives totally oblivious to the consequences of their actions, then when they die................ THEY'RE MINE MWUHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!!! ohmy.gif

Seeing as I would know God does not make himself peronsally known in this world I would take control of the largest institution claiming to speak his word, The Catholic Church, and use that a base to create evil and mayhem safe in the knowledge that every bad deed I do is perceived as Gods work.

If I were the devil, I would invent Judaism and then later I would pick some Jewish rebel, promote him extensively, convince some mental basket cases that he was the Messiah (even though he didn't meet any of the criteria that I had put in the scriptures I dictated to men) and started Christianity, then after Christianity was instrumental in causing the fall of the Roman Empire and the start of the Dark Ages, I would stir the pot a little more by inventing Islam and making it where it hated Judiasm and Christianity and they hated it.  Oh, wait!  That's what's already happened - Hmmmmmm   mellow.gif :

The Devil's greatest deception when he convinced Abraham that he was a good guy and that Lucifer was the evil one.........wink2.gif

If Jews, Christians and Moslems were really Devil worshippers it'd make far more sense of their constant warring.
