What If ... The Devil Wrote The Bible

It may seem a bit far-fetched since the end of the Bible is all about the demise of the devil and the rise of God, Jesus, and the whole happily ever after version of Paradise. But at the same time it may not be that far fetched.

"But I fear, lest by any means, as the serpent beguiled Eve through his subtilty, so your minds should be corrupted from the simplicity that is in Christ." (2Cor 11:3, KJV)

"And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him." (Rev 12:9, KJV)

Two Bible verse which basically state that Satan has, or can, deceive the whole world. And what better way to deceive the world than getting them to follow a false god with the Bible?

In 2011 there were 2.18 billion Christians. The population, according to the United Nations, reached 7 billion in October of 2011. This means almost one person in every three was a Christian. Now they may not have all been reading the same Bible but they were reading variations of the Bible. And if Satan wrote that Bible, and its variants were derived from the same material, then Satan has already deceived a third of the population into believing a book he wrote.

Do not forget that the Bible goes pretty easy on punishing Satan.

First as a serpent in the Garden of Eden he is condemned to spend his life upon his belly - "And the LORD God said unto the serpent, Because thou hast done this, thou art cursed above all cattle, and above every beast of the field; upon thy belly shalt thou go, and dust shalt thou eat all the days of thy life:" (Gen 3:14, KJV). Hardly the most severe punishment that a snake can receive.

It stands to reason that Satan must have already been kicked out of Heaven before deceiving Adam and Eve, otherwise he would still be doing God's command. And when he was kicked out of Heaven God was very stern, and certain, in his punishment:

"Thou wast perfect in thy ways from the day that thou wast created, till iniquity was found in thee. By the multitude of thy merchandise they have filled the midst of thee with violence, and thou hast sinned: therefore I will cast thee as profane out of the mountain of God: and I will destroy thee, O covering cherub, from the midst of the stones of fire. Thine heart was lifted up because of thy beauty, thou hast corrupted thy wisdom by reason of thy brightness: I will cast thee to the ground, I will lay thee before kings, that they may behold thee. Thou hast defiled thy sanctuaries by the multitude of thine iniquities, by the iniquity of thy traffick; therefore will I bring forth a fire from the midst of thee, it shall devour thee, and I will bring thee to ashes upon the earth in the sight of all them that behold thee." (Eze 28:15-18, KJV)

Sounds good but it was just hot air. Because when God calls a meeting in Heaven Satan decides to go along and God doesn't even know:

"Now there was a day when the sons of God came to present themselves before the LORD, and Satan came also among them. And the LORD said unto Satan, Whence comest thou? Then Satan answered the LORD, and said, From going to and fro in the earth, and from walking up and down in it." (Job 1:6-7, KJV)

So the punishment is banishment from Heaven and spontaneous combustion yet Satan wanders into Heaven whenever he feels like it.

Why is Satan getting an easy ride? Because even though he is writing the Bible to deceive he just cannot bring himself to punish himself too much. And if everyone who proclaims to be a Christian is following a book written by Satan then they would not be following the true God and as such when, or if, any day of judgment comes along all Christians will meet their fate - whatever that may be.
