speak of the devil...
Anyways, I know a fair number of you are universal reconciliation subscribers and I'm curious as to your thoughts on satan and hell and demons and all that jazz.
I haven't given much thought to the concept of Satan in the last while, aside from occasionally wondering if he was doing a fantastic job of driving me away from the faith. Lately I've been thinking that the concept of satan as I understood it is just far too simplistic and one-sided, like so many things. After all, the bible says that a rainbow is a promise, but education will reveal it as the refraction of light through water droplets in the air.
I think that the simplistic, good guy bad buy themes of the bible serve their purposes, but as most of us here know, there are about a million shades of grey, and that many explanations for life as we know it.
Isn't it so much fun to speculate? I love being a free agent.
