    Ask the Devil ;)

    Discussion in 'The Lounge' started by mugen shiyo, Jun 30, 2011.

    Everyone has a question for God they would like to ask, but what about the Devil? If you could ask the Devil one question, what would it be?

    I'd ask him if I really do have to give him my soul after attempting to trade it some years ago for a Charizard Pokemon card at the age of 12.

    "Hi, Devil-guy. Sending my soul to eternal damnation, the whole fire and brimstone thing, a million lifetimes in pain and suffering, that I can understand. But letting Celine Dion cover an AC/DC song? Really?" :D

    Out of all the many, many portrayals of you in TV shows, books and movies, which performance/version of your character would you say is the most accurate?

    After spending a lifetime looking for a place to smoke in peace without someone raising an objection, I'd say 'Howdy Dev, it's good to be here. Now where can I find the fallen women?'

    I'd ask him:

    #1- So, where's Hitler so I can beat the crap out of him? For that matter, where's Stalin, Pol-Pot, and all those other horrible dictators?

    #2- So, what did God do that pissed you off so bad that you created an entire realm where you do nothing but cause endless suffering for everyone who enters? Did the phrase "Talk it out" not occur to you?

    #3- Wow, this is like Dagon's realm from The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion! Where is the Sigil Tower??

    (1. Why do you think Hitler wouldn't beat up you?)
    (2. Lucifer was sent to hell to be punshed. The "god of hell"-part was added centuries later.)
    (3. Dagon is from Lovecraft originally. But much like all his work, it has been ripped off by pretty much everyone.)

    (sorry, too tempting.) :p

    If I got a second question, I'd ask him if he can step up and take over the world. It's not like he can do a worse job than God. ;)

    ^Punished for what?

    Now that the idea of beating people up has been presented, I would kind of like to challenge souls trapped in hell to leg wrestling matches. No one here will ever leg wrestle me...

    Being a brat, basically. :p He and his followers started questioning God and eventually refused to do what he asked them, so down they went.

    The difference between Old Scratch and God is that God would not run the world. He leaves it to his children to run, and watches them grow from their mistakes.

    The Devil would run things. We would stagnate and fail.

    I have no questions for the Prince of Lies.

    No offense, but according to that theory we would all be 100 feet tall by now. :D

    But enough off-topic, perhaps. :)

    I'd like to ask him what he thinks about all the c*ap he gets to be honest. Especially considering if you read your Bible and your Paradise Lost he's actually a very human character: very flawed but with a certain sense of humor. Sometimes he's even likable.

    This is a really good question. :)

    I might ask what he thinks defines a good person and what defines a bad person.

    I would like to ask a lot of spiritual deities and leaders that question. It would be interesting to compare their answers, especially between the Christian God and the Christian Devil. Although from a personal standpoint, I would probably be most interested in the Buddha's response.

    Thats because he is an angel. People tend to forget that and only focus on the 'devil' part. Sure he was cast out of heaven and sent to hell to be punished, but I don't remember him turning into something else along the way. He's a fallen angel, but still an angel.

    What I would ask, if I could trust the answer, is this:

    Are you in competition with God, for the souls of men, or are you his agent, to give man an incentive to strive for betterment?

    Presuming that the devil is infact real (which I don't) I would ask him something along the lines of "what can I offer you to not be tortured forever, or, perhaps "can I have a cookie?"

    Would you be able to tell me the truth if I asked you about what would God answer if I asked him whether you'd lie to me when asked this question? Or you're just a puppet in his hands and have no option but to lie to me.

    If I could only ask him/her one question I would first think long and hard about it. But off the top of my head if I only had a few moments to speak right now, I would ask him/her how a human could become physically immortal, assuming that I only had a single question that I could ask. By the way, aren't angels considered gender neutral in the Judeo-Christian tradition?

    I'd ask him why he's so damn stupid. Assuming you believe the standard Christian story of course. Who would know better the omnipotence and omniscience of God than Lucifer? And having that knowledge, you still rebelled? Not a smart move.
