  • Chops them up and shakes them up with Ice to make a Devil's cocktail. Nice and cool for those white-hot nights.
  • If he collects enough he perhaps gets loyalty points which can be redeemed for free prizes at the Heaven branch of his favourite supermarket.
  • I have no idea. He wouldn't say. All he said was, "Thanks."
  • Well, you did say he was "collecting" them! Maybe he has a room with lots of shelves to put them on. And glass cases for the really rare valuable ones.... In that same room there is probably a high backed leather chair, where he sits with his cognac and stares deeply at them wishing he could be just one iota as good as they were. But this is pure speculation...
  • Hoarding, greed, to satisfy his ego, showdown of his power, too many reasons.
  • I don't think he collects them as much as he tries to destroy them - just out of meanness.
  • Human souls are to the Devil as Pokemon are to kids; gotta get 'em all!
  • The devil doesn't collect souls - no - he collects points on Answerbag!
  • DAMNED FINE QUESTION! Though I've never pondered this point before, I'd have to say...I think the devil is a greedy bastard. He doesn't so much want it himself, as he wants to deprive YOU of it. He wants you naked, denuded of it when you try to go knocking on the gates of heaven, saying "knock-knock," (who's there?) "a guy without a soul trying to party-bash the biggest fiesta ever." According to the ancient stories, I suppose the devil is just using us in the ancient feud he holds against God, as an evicted angel. He wants, like a spoiled child, always to show God that he "does tooooooooo" have power amongst men walking the globe. It is the oldest parlor trick in the world. You keep them focused on the coin in your hand, while you're taking their wallet from their hip pocket!
  • If he collects enough of them then he might possibly sink down to the level of the christians. Before you get mad at me - I do think that might be his purpose.
  • G'day Anonymous, Thank you for your question. He needs them to earn Frequent Frier points. Satan needs a new air conditioner because his house is as hot as Hades all year round. Regards
  • Company. ? however, i doubt he really wants them. i personally judge deities by their followers, and live by the maxim 'by none but a god, shall a god be worshiped'....
  • Probably constantly hungry.
  • Put them in his shoes, I guess.
  • He wants the souls of the bad and evil to punish them for their sins Hell is full of pedophiles I wish there was a glass port hole so we could watch them burn
  • biblically speaking the devil can't collect souls since it sticks to the body even after death and it will only rise together with the human flesh when the 2nd coming of Christ comes.. the spirit is the one that rise after death but the devil cant get them coz it goes back to its Creator which is God.. the human being consist of 3 things.. the soul, the spirit and the flesh and bones.. (pardon i forgot the biblical verse for reference..)
  • It's his hobby to collect them, sort of like how some people collect stamps or action figures.
  • I believe the devil collects souls so he/she can torture them for all eternity.
  • It's like baseball cards; just think how much a Ted Bundy or Mao Tse Tung would be worth.
  • He's doomed and he wants to take as many as possible with him.
  • I would say the devil, out of his discontent for the world and everything in his own anger, would take the souls and corrupt them
  • Interesting answers, but I didn't buy any of them except for perhaps zazzy_one's. I think Satan only likes collecting souls because it spites God. Each soul is one more child that God isn't reunited with. This is one respect in which Satan can hurt God. Satan has quite the vendetta against God. The problem I think with the other answers is the asumption that the devil likes to punish his guests. Again, please correct me if you know otherwise, but I think God created hell and Satan just stays there as punishment for rebellion. After all, acting upon anger has always been one of God's hobbies.
  • Hey, everyone needs a hobby - Soul collecting is a fun, and intersting activity!
  • Maybe he redeems them for valuable cash prizes? Just kidding, of course!
  • The more for him the less for the good side....:)
  • Some people have a mowtown collection, he has a soul collection...
  • Imagine this: remember the game Happy Families, where you would try and get the set? I reckon life is just one big game of 'Happy Families' between him and God, and they sit their with potato chips and buds, playing continuously, trying to win and get the most. At least, that would be why *I* would collect souls
  • He's a nerd a heart!
  • My guess is that he wants to free them from eternal servitude to Yahweh.
  • Uses them as targets for clay pigeon shooting
  • he thanks that eventually he could take over god (impossible) also he can take over the earth with hatrid lets repeat he "can" , and he wants the earth because thats what evil is wanting and wanting, just to laugh it in some ones face.
  • to taint them black.
  • He just don't want to be by himself downthere.
  • Maybe its a game. Whomever collects the most souls wins, God or Devil, If I believed that kinda thing I would put my money on the Devil
  • He is just so nasty that he does not want to see anyone enjoying the heaven he will never see again.
  • They go great with onion dip and a cold beer.
  • THE SOUL IS YOUR BODY WHICH RETURNS BACK TO THE EARTH,YOUR SPIRIT LEAVES YOUR SOUL WITH PASSING OF YOUR EARTHLY BODY,TO PUT IT LIKE THIS,YOUR SOUL IS `A HOUSE,YOUR SPIRIT IS THE LIGHT IN THE HOUSE,YOU ARE BUT A LIFE FORM YET TO BE BORN ONTO LIFE OUT OF AN EGG.IN THE END OF THE NEW BEGINNING 144000 carry all the past lives of all that ever lived onto the judgment throne in the hereafter,they are holy vessels that lived in the 180 ways I teach how to clean your plate and become blessed and holy in spirit
  • Anyone who knows a collector knows what they are like. They collect because they do. I think the Devil may be OCD and I think most collectors are. What could he possibly want with them? Collectors like to keep their collectables and have them valued and display them, sometimes devoting half their house to it. Then they like to go on TV shows about 'collectors' and display all their stuff and tell how they got into collecting and how they spent so much time doing it and how wonderful their husband/wife is for letting them etc...be the same with the Devil...once the collecting bug bites they just gotta!
  • For them to die forever in the tormenting lake of fire so that he won't burn and suffer alone, and so he can get some revenge on God, when God sentences him there on Judgement Day. Satan hates human beings and wants them all sentenced to the lake of fire forever, whereas God loves human beings and wants them to live in heaven with Him forever even though they don't deserve it. He sent His Son Jesus Christ to die for us humans so that our sins could be paid for by His death and blood atonement rather than us dying and going to the lake of fire forever. 3 days later, God rose His Son Jesus from the dead and He later ascended to God's right hand and is coming back very soon. The devil is terrifyed of the Lord Jesus Christ because He is the One who created him and has power over him. Satan wants to deceive as many people into not receiving Christ and missing heaven for the lake of fire as he possibly can. I hope that this helps. Thank you and God bless you!
  • The devil doesnt collect souls... He doesnt pay well for them either... IF the devil wanted souls it would be to burn in hell with him .... FOREVER
  • to tourment them, and keep them as far away from heaven as possible.
  • The devil does not really care about collecting souls, he just want to interfere with God's plan and his work of salvation accomplished in Christ. People who ultimately reject God through their own free will decisions just help Satan along. "But deliver us from evil." The last petition to our Father is also included in Jesus' prayer: "I am not asking you to take them out of the world, but I ask you to protect them from the evil one." (Jn 17:15) In this petition, evil is not an abstraction, but refers to a person, Satan, the Evil One, the angel who opposes God. The Bible teaches that Satan is a fallen angel. Scripture sees in this being a fallen angel, called "Satan" or the "devil". (Cf. Jn 8:44; Rev 12:9) Satan was at first a good angel, made by God: "The devil and the other demons were indeed created naturally good by God, but they became evil by their own doing." Scripture speaks of a sin of these angels. (2 Pet 2:4) This "fall" consists in the free choice of these created spirits, who radically and irrevocably rejected God and his reign. The devil "has sinned from the beginning"; he is "a liar and the father of lies." (1 Jn 3:8; Jn 8:44) It is the irrevocable character of their choice, and not a defect in the infinite divine mercy, that makes the angels' sin unforgivable. "There is no repentance for the angels after their fall, just as there is no repentance for men after death." Scripture witnesses to the disastrous influence of the one Jesus calls "a murderer from the beginning," who would even try to divert Jesus from the mission received from his Father. (Jn 8:44; cf. Mt 4:1-11) "The reason the Son of God appeared was to destroy the works of the devil." (1 Jn 3:8) The power of Satan is, nonetheless, not infinite. He is only a creature, powerful from the fact that he is pure spirit, but still a creature. He cannot prevent the building up of God's reign.

  • Mythology...... Fear is a powerful motivator to get people to buy into what your selling.

  • Sorcerers or Mantriks which are the highest level ghosts in hell try to catch people during their life and after death. Once they catch someone they make that person do their bidding. You can find information about mantriks here: http://www.spiritualresearchfoundation.org/spiritualresearch/difficulties/Ghosts_Demons/typesofghost_sorcerer.php
  • They taste great on toast!
  • Well he seeks to rival God power and All pervading authority. Therefore he requires human souls to create a legion of trolls or demons. Humanity and love increase Gods power. People generally dislike unsociable nasty people, Satan therefore is required to collect human souls and indoctrinate them with hate, immorality and anarchy against Gods law. To do this he needs human souls. If his following were all as mean and nevil looking they would be captured and destroyed, so he requires human souls, glitzed facades but vile within. Humanity and Love will always rule.
  • they have a 5c deposit on each one
  • He is building Adolf's replacement; and by the looks of it, he must be mighty close to completion.
  • That question should be directed to my ex - let me ask him and I'll get back with you. :)
  • I have no clue, as I've never heard a precise and concrete definition of the word soul aside from a substitute or standstill word which may be used to describe the intricacies of the mind and awareness that we don't understand but live with every day. But one suggestion is that the Devil will use these souls on the Apocalypse to ''elevate'' Himself up to Heaven in order to fight God. So, I'm not sure which specific Christian belief this comes from, someone tell me if they know, but it would seem us humans will be responsible for the outcome of Judgement Day. Satan gets souls through successful temptations, and if most of humanity falls to it, it might make his work easier. :/
  • ...the construct called "devil" is unreal, therefore it cannot collect anything... to the degree however that you assign this idea - devil - reality to you, then it can be as real as you want it to be...
  • To organize a terrorist group like Al-Qaida!
  • Because the devil goal is to get as many soul from God as possible, so that in the end of times he will have people burning with him in the Pit of Fire.
  • this is what i believe. according to bible Satan "the serpent" the evil force was born almost along with the Adam and Eve. (that's what forced them to eat the fruit of the forbidden garden) It also needs followers doesn't it? so it collects soul to increase it's powers. you can say kind of reward points system. According to Hinduism, The good and the bad, both are the gifts given by god to the man. and the So, called SATAN was also created by GOD. Satan was created by god with the equal powers as his. This all was done to teach man kind a lesson that no matter how powerful the evil forces are, the good always win. Guess i have taken this to another level.lol. just that too much knowledge is always harmful, it confuses others.
  • He is saving up for a Wii
  • the devil himself is with out a soul, so he like a serial killer collects souls as a fetish he wants what he can't have.
  • He uses them as kindling hell hath no fury without fodder
  • Saying the devil "collects souls" is incorrect. Because Satan can not be with God, he wants no one else to be with God.
  • So God can't have them.
  • nothing he's just a dooshbag
  • Once he collects 45,035,676,332 souls, he gets a t-shirt. Like box-tops.
  • To sprinkle on his tacosalad
  • The devil does not collect souls, at least not in the Christian religion. As of the Crucifixion, all souls belong to Christ, and He will deal with them all at the Last Judgment. Also, Satan does not rule in Hell -- he isn't even there yet. But he will be its most tormented and wretched prisoner.
  • I dunno, but I like them on toast in the morning
  • He wants to take down as many 'souls' with him as he can.
  • Well, my idea is that neither the devil nor god collect souls. SOuls are judged and then sent to either heaven or hell. Hell is controlled by the Devil, he is the one in charge of punishing the souls sent there until they are let out, kind of like being in jail, except much worse. God is in charge of heaven, and looks after the souls residing here.
  • I don't believe in the immortal soul, but if it did exist and the devil did collect them... maybe he's a Kleptomaniac?
  • A full set?
  • He puts them on a plaque and hangs them in the hall of flame.
