Posted on 10/15/2013 8:07:19 AM PDT by RoosterRedux
Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia made headlines recently when he declared his belief that the devil is a real being who has a presence in the world today.
His interviewer, Jennifer Senior of New York Magazine, was shocked by Scalias statements.
But Karl Payne, author of Spiritual Warfare: Christians, Demonization, and Deliverance, says the reaction is a sign of how secularized certain segments of American society have become. He believes Scalia is right on the mark.
Senior: You believe in heaven and hell?
Scalia: Oh, of course I do. Dont you believe in heaven and hell?
Scalia: Oh, my.
Senior: Does that mean Im not going?
Scalia: [Laughing.] Unfortunately not!
Senior: Wait, to heaven or hell?
Scalia: It doesnt mean youre not going to hell, just because you dont believe in it. Thats Catholic doctrine! Everyone is going one place or the other.
Senior: But you dont have to be a Catholic to get into heaven? Or believe in it?
Scalia: Of course not!

This reporter was a complete ignoramus.
And yet, she was a perfect representative of every Leftist deviant on the planet.
The finest trick of the devil is to persuade you that he does not exist.
- Charles Baudelaire
If someone does not believe in heaven or hell than telling them they are going to hell should not concern them.
To bad one day they will have to answer, as we all will, that's when the “weeping and gnashing of teeth” will begin.
Now the Senate is looking for ‘moderate’ judges, ‘mainstream’ judges. What in the world is a moderate interpretation of a constitutional text? Halfway between what it says and what we’d like it to say?

*Supreme Court justice unloads on Satan, demons*
From the title I thought that a Judge gave a stern talking to Harry Reid and some other Democrats...
Either the Bible is the Word of God or it isn't. Either Jesus is the Christ or He isn't.
Let us pray that Jennifer accepts Christ as her Savior, and comes to the full knowledge of God.
Belief is a deeply held conviction about reality and may be incorrect.
Reality is what is...no room for error.
As Scalia says, reality is what it is...despite what you may believe to the contrary. In other words, the fact that one may not believe in hell is in no way related to the fact of its existence and/or whether one is headed there.
Catholics are right on this one. There is a heaven and a hell and we are all going...that is going to one or the other. One way is through Christ and the other isn’t (through Christ).
I think Scalia planted the seed.
Not surprising. Anyone who’s seen how the media treat people of faith could predict this reporter’s response to Scalia.

Satan is teaching one of his students, that the most important lie they can convey to mankind....
...is that we don’t exist!
For if there is no perceived threat, there will be no resistance!
Yes, I pray the interview would prompt her to look into these weighty things that Satan has made trivial today and that God would reveal our Redeemer to her and she would see her sin and believe in Him for salvation.
Exactly. What has always been strange to me is how people who profess to not believe in God, heaven or hell get all in a tizzy when someone says or infers they might go to hell.
It seems to belie their profession. It also seems ironic that they would think that my opinion would have any actual influence on their eternal destination.
The Bible teaches that everyone goes one place or the other. It is a binary event. My judgment will not tip the scales at all.
Beautiful and True. CS Lewis... the intellectual who converted to Christ... and then threatened the “above it all” marxists and leftists with Christianity on an intellectual level that was so beyond them... they too converted.
Satan is Real. he works every day in every way.
Mr. Justice Scalia and every practicing member of nearly every world religion.
Did you mean ignoranus?
That's when you are ignorant and an a55hole...
Thank goodness for the orthodoxy of Justice Scalia. It is only to the lost and dying world that this is a joke. It is a basic tenet of Christianity that Satan and his minions are real. How else can you explain the monolithic belief system of the liberal left and media?
it does because evenif they don’t you’ve made a negative value judgment against them, and for those who can’t be wrong/massive ego, not only have you insulted them saying they aren’t going to the good place, you’ve done so in a way that can only mean they are wrong about the afterlife.
that’s what gets them.
scalia met with obama and his unelected czars...
I’m glad someone had the courage to publicly state controversial anti-Satan and anti-demon positions.

When someone professes to not believe in hell, and then asks if they are going there... it begs the question: why do you care?
Whenever I hear a lib talk about there being no God, I say the following:
You mean that you believe that all of the joy and pain you experience in your life are nothing but complex chemical reactions designed to extend your life long enough to mate? Anything short of successful transmission of DNA is a genetic failure? Homosexuals are just genetic dead ends to you since there is no other purpose to life? That painting you are so proud of is just a complex way to attract a mate? That is a sad way to go through life.
It burns them up!
