    he was cast out of heaven for attempting to become God. He tried to take something that wasn't his which was God's Glory.
    of course we don't know exactly what happened but we can surmise from certain texts. they are few and far between.
    In the Jewish tradition he is precisely an angel.

    Doesn't Satan do the same?
    I'm fairly sure atheists aren't constantly planning the downfall of the human race.

    Only fairly sure, though.

    All of us have free will. One can choose to believe in God or one can choose to blaspheme God.

I think god is strong enough to let people be comfy on their own terms and if they want to ignore him with atheism then I feel god would be comfortable allowing them to do that. Actually im not even sure god punishes Satanists (doesnt Satan do that?).
    Everyone is allowed to have their own thoughts; therefore, anyone can be blasphemous. Outspoken critics of Christianity are most certainly being blasphemous. They denigrate God by denigrating God directly, as in God doesn't exist or indirectly by denigrating God's creations.

    One always has the ability to know God. If one chooses not to know God and speaks in a denigrating way God, Jesus, the Bible, and about his creations, that person is blasphemous.

    Interesting you should bring up forgiving. You may need to go to the Philosophy section of DP as there is a discussion there about forgiving and that forgiving is garbage. Maybe you could straighten them out.

    As for my motivation, it is rather simple. I now understand many Atheists. I have not always been able to make statements like the opening post, but I now recognize it. If Atheists want God to forgive them, they need to seek God's grace. I recommend it.

    If? No, Atheists are wrong. God clearly exists; except, possibly to Atheists.

    My fellow Discordians have it WAY easier. Eris is absolutely bonkers, and doesn't give a **** about anything!
    Sounds like Eris knows not what Eris does.

    Not constantly? Are you saying they sometimes or often plan the downfall of the human race. My guess is that they probably are not even considering the impact they have on themselves.

    Eris knows it doesn't matter.

    But she's got a sense of humor about it!

    I swear, Christians are so grim sometimes.
