Yes. There is a devil. Terrorism is devil. Today's devil are more sophiscated than earlier ages. They use modern gadgets. They use planes to destroy human beings like in 9/11 attack. So there is devil.

Don't get me wrong, I don't think is right to hurt other people let alone torture or mass murder. These people chose to hurt others because they were delusional. Satan had nothing to do with it. We are responsible for own actions PERIOD.

Does there have to be a devil if there is a God? I don't believe in god or the devil. However there has to be evil things if there are good things. Evil and Satan are two different things. There are no forces controlling us, we are the ones who choose what we want to do with our lives.

I consider that there is a force, the lie, which opposes God but I do not consider it a personal force, a devil, if you will. Humans can choose to accept the truth or the lie and what we choose to accept will colour the ways in which we live our lives. Do we honour, respect and cherish other humans or do we use them?, are they people to us or tools? Our answer will tell us which we serve.

No. Plenty of people around the world belief in some type of "God" and reject the belief in some type of evil, malevalent entity. New Agers, for example. Most seem to believe that there is no heaven or hell, just the afterlife.

Yes it has to be that way because one of his angels wants to have his own kingdom.

I am a Roman Catholic. I am supposed to believe of God & Devil. I really believe in God. And so I know there is evil as well. I think every person has a bit of God and a bit of devil inside himself. It is us who allow the God or the Devil to come into surface.

If God exists, why devil wouldn't? But in my opinion, it exist because we want him to exist. Many people needs this trust, linked to the idea of punishment.

I DONT BELIEVE IN AN ULTIMATE EVIL. I BELIEVE THE ONLY EVIL THAT EXISTS IN THE WORLD LIES IN THE HEARTS OF ALL MEN. GOD IS THE DEFINITIVE. HE GIVES LIFE AND TAKES LIFE AWAY. HE IS ALL THERE IS. SATAN IS JUST A MYTHICAL CREATURE THE CHRISTIANS CREATED IN THE LIKENESS OF THE PAGAN GOD TO COVERT ALL PAGANS TO CHRISTIANITY. THEY, AFTER ALL, WERE THE PROMINANT RELIGION BEFORE CHRISTIANITY.

I've never seen/felt proof that the devil is real where as I know that God/dess is real, I have had many prayers answered the closest thing I've seen to the dvil is man made things, fear, hate, anger, self doubt, envy, greed etc etc....
