Would you make a deal with the Devil?

    WOULD immortality automatically be monotonous though?

    As far as we know, the universe is infinite. So even if you had an infinite amount of time to explore it it, you'd still be finding new things, and new things aren't boring. Assuming the human race gets around to space exploration eventually, how could you ever be bored?

    Now, if the universe is finite... yeah, that would get pretty dull. But it would take a long time and I gotta say, eternal monotony has a leg up on eternal torture in my book.

    That serpent controlled my life for 25 years. He can't have anymore of it. PRAISE THE NAME OF JESUS!

    I don't think Lucifer Morningstar much cares about the lives of paticular mortals, unless they are of not or useful to him in his war against the Silver City.

    He cares he is a entity of destruction full of hate and envy. I don't think bargaining with Satan should even be considered. Why bargain with him, when you can receive something he can't give you, for free...ETERNAL LIFE...

    Just gotta call on the name of Jesus, Thank You God, You are most merciful.

    Again, I doubt he cares about single souls. It's not the fault of Lucifer that men fall, it's their own choices that condemn them. Likewise, Jesus will not save, only the choice to change will improve you.

    My point is it might be worth it, if you could do away with something like war. Sure, you'll be in hideous pain for eternity, but you'd probably get used to it after a while, maybe strike up a few conversations with Satan about Paradise Lost, etc., whereas you'd be guaranteeing no more genocide, no more child soldiers, no more war time rape, etc., etc.

    He cares about me, but that's just cause we struck up a friendship over Tuesday morning lattes, and it turns out he's a HUGE fan of Borges.

    Jesus says satan ask for Peter by name. If he didn't care for single souls why ask for Peter by name?

    Actually, we could not be saved had not Jesus became the ultimate sacrifice...so, Jesus will save you...You are His main agenda.

    Show me where in the Bible it says that the Devil committed such things as God did like the flood, Sodom and Gomorrah, the plagues in Egypt, The slaughter of the Malachites, etc. etc.? Besides your boss is willing to condemn me to eternal torment; Hardly a nice and loving boss ;)
