So Jews believe that Satan is an angel that God chooses...one angel? Any angle? Could satan also be a person? So anybody that is there to deceive etc?
I get what you're saying about the 'eye for an eye' thing Regina, I've actually had someone bring that up to me many years ago claiming that the bible contradicts itself because in one part it says 'eye for an eye' but another it says 'turn the other cheek'. They simply didn't understand nor did they try to understand the story behind the comments made my God, most don't understand the differences between the covenants and why. Heck most christians don't understand it either!

Grrr, I just wrote a reply and lost it!
I do believe that back when the bible was translated into Latin and then into English, that meaning was easily lost in translation - at a time of corruption in the church, the church leaders of the day did not want christians to be able to understand and read the bible for themselves, because it was sometimes used to serve the purposes of man.
These days, as I said, with the bible being translated straight from Hebrew into English (and the NT I believe straight from Greek into English), a lot less meaning is lost - christians are much more aware and discerning, and do not blindly accept what is fed, and do expect the bible to be based on original language. How do you read the jewish bible? Do you read it in English, or Hebrew?
I am interested to hear about your views on 'The Satan' in the OT and the book of Job. What are your views on Isaiah 14, when it discusses Satan as a fallen star? i have heard it said that this could be referring not to Satan but to the ancient King of Babylon, so I would be interested to hear if this is what you believe, or soemthing else.

I think people think that because most christians really are under the authority of the church leadership but not everyone is though. I'm not. I grew up in a cult so I am soooooo not LOL
I literally had to strip everything that I previously knew away and start from scratch and it's been an exciting journey. That's why I started this thread because I really get a lot out of different perspectives, revelations and thoughts.
