First of all, I'm an atheist, raised up in a christain church since age 5. Now... if GOD is the Father of everybody. I don't understand why he would cast the devil out of heaven, here on earth with us. Why hasn't anyone tried to save the devil, and get him back to heaven. God just disowned one of his beautiful angels of music!!!! That's so unfair and hypocritical of a so called FATHER!!!! I wonder what MOTHER has to say about this. lolAnswer Question

I can't quote you specific Bible verses, and even if I could, I wouldn't. You say that you grew up in a Christian home, you should know. I can only tell you that for me life without faith and prayer would be a dark existence, too dark to bare. Prayer has seen me through the death of my sister, my father and my son's multiple surgeries, and my husband's horrible accident. I don't know where I would be without my faith. To lay blame at the feet of God for all that goes wrong in our lives is unfair, especially when we deny Him credit for all that is good.
As for Satan, he chose to remove himself from Grace. God gave us all the gift (or curse) of free will it's up to us to make our choices.

Even though I am not Christian I found this all very interesting and informative and I whole-heartedly agree with this statement that o0gone0o said "Prayer doesn't work for those that do not wish to be saved."
