  • Satan is devious and cunning and uses every trick to deceive. The answer is yes.
  • Yes. I actually have seen two demons with my physical eyes just as I am able to see this computer. Satan and the demons are real, and interact with this whole world.
  • Jesus himself called the Devil “the ruler of the world,” and the apostle Paul described him as “the god of this system of things.”—John 14:30; 2 Corinthians 4:4; Ephesians 6:12. Peter counsels: “Keep your senses, be watchful. Your adversary, the Devil, walks about like a roaring lion, seeking to devour someone. But take your stand against him, solid in the faith.” (1Pe 5:8, 9)“Satan himself keeps transforming himself into an angel of light,” we are told. Likewise, his servants, including apostates, are “deceitful workers” who “also keep transforming themselves into ministers of righteousness.”2 Corinthians 11:13-15; 1 Timothy 1:19.

  • I think it is definitely possible, but it would be impossible to prove.
  • Yes, he does walk among us, though he does not show himself. Satan is spoken of as the prince of lies. The great deceiver. How, then, would you know? If he is so good at disguise then you would never recognize him. I believe satan is just another name for the darkness and temptation that lurks in the depths of the human heart. Everyone has felt it at one time or another, and most people refuse to act on those base animal impulses. Satan is nothing more than a personification of the darker aspects of the human mind. Its a convenient way to dismiss the deviant thoughts or actions of others. Simply saying "Satan made me do it" and then seeking forgivness from god is a way to avoid responsibility for one's own actions.
  • Yes in the Genesis account, in Chapter 3, we find Satan speaking through a serpent. When Satan approached Eve (through the speech of the serpent), he actually challenged the rightfulness and righteousness of God’s sovereignty. He intimated that God was unrightfully withholding something from the woman; he also declared that God was a liar in saying that she would die if she ate the forbidden fruit. Additionally, Satan made her believe she would be free and independent of God, becoming like God. God’s Word warns Christians that “Satan himself keeps transforming himself into an angel of light. It is therefore nothing great if his ministers also keep transforming themselves into ministers of righteousness. But their end shall be according to their works.” (2 Corinthians 11:14, 15) Satan so successfully appeared as “an angel of light” that he was able to deceive even a perfect human, Eve. (1 Timothy 2:14) And as in the case with Eve, Satan disguised his real nature and purposes by “transforming himself into an angel of light,” and he had agents, ministers who “also keep transforming themselves into ministers of righteousness.” (2Co 11:14, 15) Examples of these were the false apostles who fought against Paul (2Co 11:13) and those in Ephesus ‘who said they themselves were Jews, and yet they were not but were a synagogue of Satan.’ (Re 2:9) Satan never ceased in making accusations “day and night” against Christians, challenging their integrity, as he did Job’s. (Re 12:10; Lu 22:31) But Christians have “a helper with the Father, Jesus Christ, a righteous one,” who appears before the person of God in their behalf.—1John 2:1.
  • Yes, disguised as my boss...
  • Yes he is here now...he lives about 40 miles from me in Alabama.
  • He always shows himself as something else. He is a spirit, like the angels, and we cannot see him unless he takes on a visible form, a disguise. He is usually disguised as something charming and pleasant; otherwise, we would be more wary of dealing with him. He is most successful when he tempts us only a tiny bit at a time, so tiny that we don't realize that he is leading us gradually down a slippery slope.
  • yes, sometimes he even takes the form of other people. its accually quite frightening
  • yeah...my first husband
  • I believe he currently resides in West Palm Beach, Florida in the form of one of my former High School teachers.
  • The Devil Went Down To Georgia The devil went down to Georgia He was looking for a soul to steal And he was in a bind 'Cause he was way behind And was willin' to make a deal. When he came upon this young man playing a fiddle and playin' it hot. The devil jumped up on a hickory stump and said, "Boy let me tell you what: I bet you didn't know it but I'm a fiddle player too, And if you care to take a dare I'll make a bet with you Now you play a pretty good fiddle boy But give the devil his due I'll bet a fiddle of gold against your soul 'Cause I think I'm better than you." The boy said, "My name's Johnny And it might be a sin But I'll take your bet, your gonna regret 'Cause I'm the best that's ever been." Johnny you rosin up your bow and play your fiddle hard 'Cause hell's broke loose in Georgia And the devil deals the cards And if you win you get this shiny fiddle made of gold But if you lose the devil gets your soul. The devil opened up his case and he said, "I'll start this show." And fire flew from his fingertips As he rosined up his bow And he pulled the bow across the strings And it made an evil hiss Then a band of demons joined in And it sounded something like this When the devil finished Johnny said, "Well you're pretty good ol' son! But sit down in that chair right there And let me show you how it's done!" Fire on the mountain, run boys run Devil's in the house of the rising sun Chickens in the breadpan, picking out dough Granny does your dog bite? No, child, no The devil bowed his head Because he knew that he'd been beat, And he laid that golden fiddle On the ground at Johnny's feet Johnny said, "Devil, just come on back if you ever wanna try again. I done told you once, You son-of-a-gun, I'm the best that's ever been!" He played: Fire on the mountain, run boys run Devil's in the house of the rising sun Chickens in the breadpan, picking out dough Granny does your dog bite? No, child, no.
  • Yes. I have always heard of the saying "the devil won't come in his suit of red with horns-a-fire but as a well dressed man with a tongue made of honey". Meaning-beware of men that look good on the outside and try to sweet talk you into doing things for them. I suppose the devil would be something like that. After all, the antiChrist is supposed to be a big deceiver and most people that I know that are deceivers do it in a way that others don't know they are being deceived until it is too late.
  • ALL THE TIME; Most often he hangs around me, Tempting me ! I resist as much as I can ;) (imgoingtohell)
  • Parents. Santa may not be a real physical being but if he is the spirit of giving then he rests in all of us at some point or another.
  • Luke 22:3: Then Satan entered Judas, called Iscariot, one of the Twelve. Yes- he does.
  • Only when I am bored.
  • Edit: Yes, he started the neocon movement in America.
  • I believe that he does, in form of spirit but does anyone know if it is said in the bible that he disguises himself as human (not speaking of possession). I know he disguised himself as a snake loong ago in the garden of eden :]
  • Yes he does, in all sorts of guises all the time in every place that celebrate the feast of St Nicholas,even my mother has been taken over by his persona on occasions
  • He's a tricky shape shifter and may be right next to you. There are make beliefs though, that he appears in person at halloween. But satan can appear in you, and others.
  • Okay, okay... You've caught me. Now, let's talk some business, friend.... (Laughs diabolically.)
  • G'day Antigone Rising, Thank you for your question. When I was eight, I found that Santa disguised himself as my father all the time. One day my young nieces and nephews will discover the same thing. Mojo Nixon once sung that Elvis is everywhere and each of us has a little of Elvis in us. I think the same applies to Santa. Regards Elvis is Everywhere lytics http://www.geocities.com/multielvi/mojo.html
  • Satan, like God does not exist. Do you really think that "good and bad spirits" rule the earth? It's just a xian excuse for when they screw up. Then they have someone to blame.
  • According to the bibles I have read the answer is yes.
  • Yeah my Ex. Thank goodness God got me out in time
  • I think he came here often. As Hitler and Hussein.
  • If you have ever seen someone have a psychotic episode while on drugs you would believe that they are the devil himself.
  • If you belive the stories, yes, he does. In all religions the gods and other mythological creaters can morph into something else to disguise themselves when among humans. So it stands to reason that it could to. To me it's not real so it really doesn't matter what shape it takes It has no hold on me. To me it's just a way to scare people into behaving the way you want them to. Or to have something to blame when something bad happens.
  • Not him, but I'm sure either his secretary or his wife shows up on earth, disguised as my french teacher Madame Schiffer.
  • i think he is always with us like wat they say about god.
  • Yeah ... sometimes he's the tempting piece of cake thats left on my desk; Other times he's the winking, smiling guy that flirts with me at the grocery store ... but most times, he's my Mother-in-Law.
  • 2 Cor 11:14 "Satan himself masquerades as an angel of light". One of the things Satan does best is to lie. And what is the best lie? to start another religion, using an "angel" to deliver his new teaching...haven't we seen this many times....I can think of several religions delivered by an "angel of light" (if I mention names I might create an uproar, but they know who they are). And, even if he does not use a physical angel, he can send human messengers with "nice" "logical" teachings that contradict the word of God. And if you can't contradict it, then why not make a New Translation and "translate" it according to your own beliefs (even if you have no knowledge of the original languages)? this is how people are led away from the truth, as written in 2 Timothy 4: 3For the time will come when men will not put up with sound doctrine. Instead, to suit their own desires, they will gather around them a great number of teachers to say what their itching ears want to hear. 4They will turn their ears away from the truth and turn aside to myths.
  • Yes, disguised as my Supervisor. (Bad joke, I don't think he knows about Answerbag...)
  • When Negative Energies such as Satan manifest, they actually loose their spiritual power (Yes, even Negative energies have spiritual powers). Negative energies such as Sorcerers, Demons etc usually possess a person so as to harm him/ her and to fulfil their own desires. These desires can be anything from addictions to alcohol, drugs, smoking, excessive sexual desires, harming other etc. 100% of the population in effected by Negativ e energies, its just that we are not aware of it!! Don't we all do or say things and then regret about it later, or even think, "I don't believe that I could have done something like that or said something like that, is this really me" Of course, this question could be framed in different ways by different people depending on the situation.

  • Satan is selfish desire: http://www.answerbag.com/q_view/113991/
  • From the biblical standpoint, yes. Christians are supposed to believe Satan is a spirit. Under the right conditions he can possess animals or humans. Some say the person of Satan isn't on earth but in another plain of exsistance but has a army of angels and demons that do the possessing for him...
  • Yep, he is disguised as death, drugs, hate and mayhem.
  • According to hugo chavez >george bush
  • Satan shows himself everywhere and everytime we fail to give someone the bebefit of the doubt.
  • Satan has many faces. He's the murderers, thieves, false teachers, etc.
  • yes, always, everytime he is just looking for ways to decieve people and will try to do that in many ways...sometimes in things that you dont even notice...how do you think we fall into so much sin and always give in temptation?
  • Yes. In the form of all political leaders.
  • yes he's always looking for ways to decive us and lead us away from god
  • I actually do not believe in Satan. The idea of Satan and what I have learned in my brief stints in church is that he manifests himself in sins and uses temptation. So if you believe in Satan, then yes. If you do not believe in Satan, then no.
  • The ANSWER IS NO if you're a Bible believer Since the Victory on the Cross, Satan has been confined to HEAVEN where he is held by the Archangel Michael until the appointed time of the great flood of deception upon the earth. Rev. 12: 7: And there was war *in heaven*: Michael and his angels fought against the dragon; and the dragon fought and his angels, 8: And prevailed not; neither was their place found any more *in heaven*. 9: And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him. 10: And I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, Now is come salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our God, and the power of his Christ: for the accuser of our brethren is cast down, which accused them before our God day and night. 12: Therefore rejoice, ye *heavens*, and ye that dwell in them. Woe to the inhabiters of the earth and of the sea! for the devil is come down unto you, having great wrath, because he knoweth that he hath but a short time. 13: And when the dragon saw that he was cast unto the earth.... Rev.9 tells us that time of the dragon will last 5 months.
  • Yes he can appear as people... He could even be me :-)!
  • dont you think that's a paranoid perspective? i think we should take responsible for things knowable The Confucian Analects: While you are not able to serve men, how can you serve spirits?...While you do not know life, how can you know about death?
  • Every once in a while he likes to show up as an Elvis impersonator.
  • Yes, have you seen my son on a bad day?
  • Yes, Paris Hilton.
  • ALL THE TIME!!!
  • Yes right now he is disguising himself as a woman who calls herself Dr.Laura.
  • Yep, my mother in law and im serious here!!!
  • Yes. She's alive and well and currently running for President of the U.S. :P
  • yes, I saw him working as a barrista at the local Starbuck's
  • Imagine if you were the Devil the easiest way to convert souls would be to have then belive you were God after all you are the prince of lies and deception and as such you can be who or what you want to be, I mean no offence to anyone here by the way just a thought!!
  • Yes. As Dick Cheney!
  • Some believe that he possessed Hitler, for Hitler preached about the Redeemer and Providence, yet he killed 6 million jews. It is possible that Satan was disguised as a angel in the garden of eden, for the serpent description could have pertained only to his personality and not his physical appearance. He has used many things and many people do many wicked things, though man is usually so vain and self absorbed that he has no clue that he is being used, though if he knows he is and keeps on, that is a different story. He will come to earth again, disguised as the Anti Christ, and he will take control over the world, and deceive many with marvelous works, for he is the master of using his powers to be as deceptive as possible.
  • The bible says he appears as an angle of light, meaning he can wear many disguises and have the appearance of something truly wonderful while remaining who he is inside.
  • Yes, in human,animal, a ball of light, and anything that in the 'creature' relm. We as humans are part of the creature relm as is everything that is living.
