Today, points are shared for understanding sacred knowledge, evil, sin, and spirit-being.  The fighter at “Yahoo! Answers UK & Ireland” using the ID “Counselor For Lost Souls” (Level 7 with 33,683 points, a member since June 10, 2013) posted the following:

If Satan is the bad spirit that encourages us to do bad things, why are we punished by Satan in hell for doing bad things?

THE GOLDEN ARROW:  That they may know from the rising of the sun, and from the west, that there is none beside me. I am the LORD, and there is none else.  I form the light, and create darkness:  I make peace, and create evil:  I the LORD do all these things.  Drop down, ye heavens, from above, and let the skies pour down righteousness:  let the earth open, and let them bring forth salvation, and let righteousness spring up together; I the LORD have created it.  (Isaiah 45:  6-8, KJV)

“Counselor For Lost Souls”, for mature Christian believers, Satan (this name means, Adversary) is a divinely created spirit-being whose awareness and self-will have been corrupted through the operations of sin; however, there is no such thing as an independent spirit (made up of badness, sin and wickedness), that exists as the equal, the opposite, or “evil twin” of GOD.  Only divine spirit exists.  Consider the following points:

(1.)  Deity is the only origin and source for spirit substance with its multi-layered operations of spirit process.  GOD, the Immortal, the Invisible, the Holy One, has not emanated, or put forth from divinity any “bad” spirit.  We may speak of “sin” as a by-product, a residue, and an unanticipated consequence for created beings and living creatures that appeared in Creation through the condition of separation from divinity, and the living being endowed with unique coherence, independence, and integrity for communion, exchange and interaction.

(2.)  Sin is no spirit substance; and is no carnal, material, or physical thing having measurable dimensions (e.g., height, length, volume, weight).  Because sin may dominate and influence attitudes, behavior and conduct, sin is spoken of as being powerful, or as having power.  However, because sin is not something concrete or tangible one could slip into their pocket, we are inclined to say, Sin does not exist—and, therefore, can not be destroyed.  This is specially so when relying upon such finite tools as intellect, logic, mathematics, philosophy and science.

(3.)  “Sin” also is a construct (i.e., one within a formal set of ideas) used to attribute character, nature, and quality to behavior.  The influence and operation of sin may be known through appetite, emotion/mental functions, and sensation.  By contrast, condemnation, damnation and perdition pertain to divine judgment (i.e., acknowledging the presence of divine substance; assigning value to the living upon the basis of their manifest deeds; selection of divine companions). 

There is far more to be said, correctly understood, and spiritually taken into account.  (For example, (4.)  One of the most challenging scriptures for many is Isaiah 45:  57 (King James Version):  7 I form the light, and create darkness:  I make peace, and create evil:  I the LORD do all these things.  Error correctly understanding “evil” continues among those who are simple (i.e., immature, naïve, underdeveloped).  They fail to grasp how or why GOD may employ calamity and disaster that appear as judgment, as sudden and widespread change, or as upheaval.  Where believers refuse careful study of the Scriptures and the necessary work to acquire sacred knowledge, they may be relying upon emotions, imagination and primitive consciousness (i.e., gut-feelings, intuition, instinct, superstition).  Thus, they will not have light from the holy writings that also include statements provided to proclaim the exalted authority and sovereign power of Deity, and that are not to be confused with the many teachings to clarify the divine response to sin.)  Even so, I trust this fragment will be useful.  Be it unto you according to your faith and spiritual maturity.
