  5. Ryan Pack:

    Religious Opinions: Are you dead because Satan pulled the trigger or are you dead because God didn't protect you? When Satan pulled the trigger what happened? You died. When God didn't protect you what happened? You died. God not protecting you is equally malicious to Satan pulling the trigger. That is why I think God is Satan and Satan is God because they seem to have equally malicious wills. They both killed you. Satan killed you when he pulled the trigger and God killed you when he didn't protect you. When you die you will either go to heaven or hell. If you go to heaven you will be walking with the will of Satan and the image of God who will pretend to love you and give you peace and if you go to hell you will be walking with the will of God and the image of Satan who will torture you, harm you and cause you pain. Satan will love you in heaven and God will torture you in hell. God wants you to think he's good so he uses Satan's image to harm you. Satan doesn't want you to think he's evil so he uses God's image to give you love and peace. Why does God need Satan? To deceive you. Why does Satan need God? To deceive you. There is no good God of heaven just as there is no evil Satan of hell, it is just the will of evil playing both roles of God and Satan to confuse/deceive you. If God can turn water into wine then he could just as easily turn God into Satan or Satan into God. If God has the power to create the sun, the moon, the stars, the oceans, the mountains, life, the universe then he has the power to do anything. If God has the power to create heaven then he has the power to create hell. If God has the power to create day then he has the power to create night. If God has the power to create birth/life then he has the power to create dying/death. If God has the power to create peace then he has the power to create suffering. If God has the power to create good then he has the power to create evil. If God created heaven and hell then why would you need Satan? If God is responsible for all peace and suffering then why would you need Satan? I believe that the will of evil is in control of the Universe so it is my opinion that good people will go to hell and suffer and evil people will go to heaven and have peace. The will of evil wants to see good suffer and evil prosper and that's why I think good people will go to hell and evil people will go to heaven. It is my opinion that if you go to heaven you are evil and if you go to hell you are actually good.
