God commands over all things, both good and evil. Any power that Satan or evil spirits possess is only that which God allows. If someone is being tormented by an evil spirit, it could be either a test by God, to see how the person will respond in faith, or possibly punishment from turning away from him. In either case, the end goal is to get the person to turn to God, or reinforce their faith in him.


So if God is a loving, caring entity, why would he allow such pain? This is not making sense to me, I apologize...



Ever read the book of Job? Not only does allow an evil spirit to torment Job but he takes all of his belongings and family away. It also states that Satan was before God!
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 109815




Satan was before God meaning Satan was standing before God in an assembly of angels if you will read the account again. Satan was telling God that God had given all good things to Job and that Job only served God because of the things He gave to Job. Satan wanted God to take all these things away and since God cannot do evil God permitted Satan this one time to test Job himself and see if Job would curse God. Job was bound and determined to show everyone at that assembly that humans only serve God because of what God does for them. Satan failed miserable at trying to prove this. One stipulation was that Satan could not kill Job though. Even though Job did not understand what was happening Job never cursed God. Eventually in the end Job understood it was not God doing the bad things to him. God then restored everything back to Job including the same amount of children. Twice what Job had before. Job's children who died will be restored to him during the resurrection Jesus promises. Satan did not win and Job much later on died old and happy. We learn from this book that no matter what Satan does for us that God will undo it all. Good will always triumph over evil.

The ending sentence should read "no matter what Satan does TO us" instead of for us. Satan never helps us.

Personally, I find it sickening and beyond comprehension that these people would be going into cities and murdering every man, woman and child. Absolutely disgusting. I'd like to have seen them all killed...well, actually I guess that is what happened to them in the end. I would have been gathering up my tent and heading for the hills with these murderous, insane, blood-thirsty maniacs, with this Samuel the seer telling them who to kill next. There is always the possibility that half the garbage you read was written by men, savages, murderers. After all, God's 10 Commandments clearly stated, "Thou shall not kill," yet they killed constantly. So the possibility exist that these people were insane, evil liars and were slated for destruction-actually they were, as God told Moses He was going to destroy them, and that most of the tales in Samuel are tales written by insane fools, whom did not talk to God, but had become the tools of the devil.

Do some reseach on the Amalekites before thinking God is the bad guy. The Amalekites were the first one of the nations to launch an *unprovoked* attack on the Israelites after the Exodus, at Rephidim near Mount Sinai. These were not peaceful people. They brought destruction onto themselves. And in these wars if there were people in a city that were innocent they were saved. Look at the account of Rahab and her family from Jericho as an example. She was a Canaanite. They had this particular custom of taking babies and young children and burning them alive to their demon God Molech. The louder the children screamed the better according to these evil people. Obviously Rahab and her family were not like this and left their ways behind them to join the Israelites. And always remember God can read hearts unlike humans and never makes a mistake when he orders a person/s killed. If they are repentant of their deeds they are spared. Read up on Ninevah and Jonah for an example of this.

Thanks for all the responses! I think we English speakers are simply working with piss poor translations - time to learn Hebrew.
