I couldn't be sure I was right though. This is why I say, it has never for me, been Satisfactorily answered.
So? Suppose the snake isn't Satan. It makes no difference. All that would mean is that there's a part of the Bible we don't understand. That proves...absolutely nothing.
And a perfect example of what I mean is given above at post #2 by the great biblical wordsmith himself EtrnlVw.
He tells us the serpent is only "symbolic". and is " only representative of the forms of temptation mankind faces". Is he not correct?
And he hasn't related or equate Satan Or the Devil at all to this serpent in the Garden. So, should he; as you seem to have done.? And has Revelation appears to also do?
He's not a Christian, though. He thinks that all religions have some truth, but none are completely right. To him, anything can be metaphorical.
It would be nice to hear that it is "strong evidence" from someone who believes they know more or better , SirAnonymous.
I have no idea what this is supposed to mean. Could you rephrase that?
Are you a devout Christian, SirAnonymous ?
and are you telling me that the serpent of the Garden is the Satan also known as the Devil?
Probably, or just a random snake that the devil was speaking through. Again, though, what's the point of this question?
And could you just clear up for me if or not the serpent/Satan Devil at Genesis 3:1 is the same serpent Satan Devil as the one cursed Genesis 3:14
Most of it was to Satan, but the part about crawling on the belly was probably for all snakes.
