  • 1) I personally don't take the following too seriously, but here it is, for the record: "Playing cards, like reading your horoscope, has become a joke or just a game. However, the Lord does not look at it as a joke or game. There are serious consequences for reading your horoscope as well as using cards or just having them in your home. It has been said that nicknames for a deck of cards is "The Devil's Bible" and "The Devil's Picture Book". At one time the church took a strong stand against the card game. Until recently preachers and churches warned about the dangers of cards. The first deck of cards was made in 1392 for the insane French King Charles. Some of the most common places you will find a deck of cards (besides our homes) will be with prostitutes, gamblers, thieves, murderers, in taverns, brothels, prisons, insane asylums, gambling dens, etc., but never at a prayer meeting. The king represents Satan, Prince of Darkness, usurper and foe of our Lord Jesus Christ. The ten card is for the Spirit of lawlessness, in opposition to the moral law in the Word of God. In 1300, clubs were the chief weapons used by murderers, therefore this suit represents the Spirit of Murder and death by violence. The jack represents the lustful libertine, from pimp to adulterer and whoremonger, a moral leper whose chief ambition is to gratify sensual fleshly lusts. The queen represents Mary, Mother of Jesus, but in the card language she is called Mother of Harlots. The joker represents Jesus Christ, the Son of God. Joker means fool and therefore Jesus is held up to ridicule. The joker is said to be the offspring of licentious jack and the queen, Mother of Harlots. All other cards also have hidden obscene and blasphemous meanings. Nine-tenths of all gambling today is done with these cards. Witches, psychics, and satan worshiper use playing cards for divination and to cast spells and curses. Born-again believers should not want to be in contact with such a tool of satan. In Deuteronomy 7:26 we are told not to have abominable things in our homes. It will bring a curse on you and your household. It is time that Christians clean house and destroy the hidden works of darkness."

      I'm not sure that is what phoenix was asking. What is you opinion on tarot cards?

      In relation to condemnation or accusation, what may be called by accusers "The Devil's Bible" is typically and without an exception an euphemism. It proceeds from the notion of the scripture of Christianity (composed of numerous books variously compiled called as a group 'The Bible') and then evaluates a spirit adversary it posits within its religion ("The Devil") and its expression, condemning the referent. There have been books with 'Bible' in their titles, or something comparable, written by others, including adversaries of, rebellious from, and opponents of Christianity religions. These include "The Satanic Bible", "The Devil's Bible", and "The Gospel of Satan". Without the insertion of euphemism or metaphor there is no book which was not written by a human being. Usually to source a book to a supernatural agency it is attested that the human author(s) of the text were inspired by, possessed by, or controlled by said agency.

      Tarot cards have earned the condemnation "The Devil's Picturebook", and this from conservative Christians. That it proceeds from a gaming deck (Cards With Trumps, or Triumphi, or Tarocchi) and became employed for occult purposes makes it controversial but hardly what is associated by these conservative religious to the figure of The Devil. In fact in a number of common occult Tarot decks there is a card, "The Devil", which features an image which tends to be inimical to the human beings or misshapen figures, imps, or condemned spirits, constrained and duped by him who are also shown on his card. Tarot is also at times called "The Book of Thoth", and thus is ascribed authorship by a deity, rather than a demon, albeit those who condemned it as "The Devil's Picturebook" would surely consider Thoth Tahuti to be a demon just the same.
  • Quick answer - no.
  • It really depends on who you ask. Those who follow an abrahamic religion would say "no". Those whom don't would likely say that there is no such demon as the devil. As for me I think that a God/Goddess (let's not get sexist) would bring out the best in you, and a demon would want to be praised and worshipped. There are a lot of people who will say that I'm talking about Christian God being good and the Christian Devil bad, but if you have read the bible you would see what I mean. I've read up to the second book in the new Testament but I'm a pagan reading the Bible because my cousin challenged me to, I'm just hoping to get done with it soon I'm not big on reading books published by bigots. The "devil" has his own bible, that being said the flying Spaghetti Monster also has a bible. If your still reading this, the main answer is that the book in question was really written, published, and sold by humans. People of the faith would say it's gods word given to man and inspired by god. I hope that answers your question

      The actuality doesn't depend on who you ask (like Schroedinger's Cat), the response to the question certainly does. There is no reason to think that The Devil "has his own Bible". This notion of a Bible is a Christian affair they tout. While those struggling to survive their condemnation and onslaught ('The Jewish Bible' as the Tanakh has been called) or oppose a reflection of abrasiveness ("The Satanic Bible" created by a former Jewish man, Howard Stanton Levey, later called Anton Szandor LaVey) may bring forth "Bibles" these are no more Bibles than a Bible is a roadmap (whatever the gospel song may say about its use in this manner).
  • NO. (2 Timothy 3:16, 17) All Scripture is inspired of God and beneficial for teaching, for reproving, for setting things straight, for disciplining in righteousness, 17 so that the man of God may be fully competent, completely equipped for every good work. Satan does nothing good.
  • No supernatural agency has ever been shown to provide writing of any book. Instead, human beings are said to contact, become possessed of, or inspired by such supernatural beings (deities, angels, demons, whathaveyou). In the case of The Devil (a somewhat ambiguous referent, in English-speaking societies typically signifying a Christian antagonist, particularly when referring thereafter to a Bible as compared to a Qur'an, Tanakh, or Book of Shadows), those who sport Bibles are usually adversaries to and enemies of what they call The Devil, so there'd be little reason for any demon or devil to create one except, as ascribed, to deceive and struggle those who have them. This makes them far less in stature according to the spirit agency (as a centralized scripture or guidebook for those who have pledged their allegiance or faith to this devil. Some say that grimoires achieve this function, but more often than not they are simply books with methodologies to engage and sometimes control spirits, or they feature all manner of amuletic or magical formulae those who hold them might use to effective service. The Devil is reputedly far more pragmatic than this, and will have inspired his followers to provide instructions in the pursuit of worldly pleasures and stature, fame and fortune, en par with New Thought or How To Succeed Manuals.
  • 1-26-2017 You need to consider who and what you are talking about. Satan is the god of earthly authority, so it stands to reason that he would not record anything for people to follow. He wants them to follow orders from somebody who has set himself up as the giver of orders. There are several details you notice about people who mess with devil spirits. One is they are stupid, and the longer they dabble, the stupider they get. For example the witch of Endor (1 Samuel 28) did not recognize the king, even though he was head and shoulders taller than any other man in the land. Saul promised no punishment for her, being the only man in the land who could make that promise, and she still didn't know who she was talking to. An even more obvious indicator of devil followers is that they don't seem to be aware of any distinction between right and wrong. That implies zero tendency to book learning. And besides all that, the devil needs to convince people that he does not actually exist. So no book. Nevertheless, if you look at Anton Lavey's "Satanic Bible" the principles there are clearly from the devil. So whether you believe in him or not, he's got you covered.
  • The only think I can think of is the Satanic bible. And according to Wikipedia, "The Satanic Bible is a collection of essays, observations, and rituals published by Anton LaVey in 1969. It is the central religious text of Satanism, and is considered the foundation of its philosophy and dogma."
  • Tom Jackson is correct. The "devil" didn't write it's own version of a bible. But then neither did God.
  • https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Satanic_Bible
  • Man is his own devil from which he needs release.
  • God wrote the bible. He inspired men and women with spiritual words that they wrote to us. The bible is not a usual book like the way you would think of it. it is a spiritual book
    • Rick
      Amen!!
  • NO the devil did not write the (a) Bible. God wrote the Bible. It is God's words. NOT the Devil's words. God is the Father Son and Holy Spirit.
