  • Disagree. I am able to look at and literally converse with living beings, as they are alive (meaning they have life).

  • I disagree. They are not living beings in the sense we are living beings but they are not symbols either

  • If you just want to know if people agree or disagree, why not create a poll? It'd be easier to view the results that way too.

  • @crazymom21.........yes, they are symbols actually. If not symbols, than what would you call the words?

  • I agree to a degree. I think it is more of an example of good and evil. They are also spirits which would conclude living entities, but not living beings.

  • @hot-mama86...... you are wrong. A spirit is defined as the incorporeal part of a being which once lived and there is no conclusive proof of a "holy spirit, Devil or God" ever actually living!!!!!!!

  • I don't agree. I believe they are spiritual beings, but very real even though they do not have physical form. I believe the Biblical account of Lucifer being a fallen angel, and the Holy Spirit as one of the persons of the Holy Trinity.

  • They are not symbols, I think. Satan is his own spirit being. God's Holy Spirit is a life source, a force, and it is alive because it breathed life into Adam, but it is an extension of God. Why does electricity come to mind right now?

  • Disagree! Both are alive and well and on this earth.. Their realm is different than ours!
