So I’m even giving reasons.
“The first to plead his case seems right, until another comes and examines him.”
You know, there seems to be a lot of stuff in the Bible blaming Satan for this and that. For example, talking Eve into sinning, tormenting Job, possessing people. (I know you’re probably saying, “ Well, odd too that GOD does a fair share of tormenting people.” But that’s somehow okay.)
There are also ‘slanderous’ remarks referring to Satan as father of lies, the great deceiver, the dragon etc.
But where’s Satan’s defense? What’s he got to say about all this? The testimony against him is all one-sided.
Doesn’t the Bible teach that a one-sided case will appear to be right until there’s a cross-examination? (See Proverbs 18:17)
Isn’t it a common tactic to try and discredit your opponent so that anything he says will be discarded? Typical trial-lawyer bullshit, right?
Is Satan silent because he’s been barred from presenting his case? Or is he perhaps just being the bigger man by not responding to all the vitriol hurled against him? Or maybe he isn’t anywhere around Earth and GOD is taking advantage of his absence?
LOL!! Not an atheist though, but don’t question it, we all at some point think like this.
