Does Satan Exist? An Interesting Debate

I think you will find this debate interesting. 70% of Americans say he does, but who is he? There’s the question. If he does not exist, how do we account for pain and suffering in the world today.

    What percentage of the 30% are “Lutheran”?
    From http://www.elca.org:
    “Other ELCA Lutherans view Satan metaphorically — as the personification of evil forces in this world that oppose and obstruct God’s will in every age, be they human or spiritual.”
    “Mostly, the word [Satan] is used in the metaphorical sense of adversary. Nowhere does Satan appear as a distinctive demonic figure, opposed to God and responsible for all evil.”
    “Whether ELA Lutherans picture an almost anthropomorphic Satan, or see evil metaphorically as a force of sin and brokenness, all agree with Luther that, “…throughout history the battle is still bein waged…and in this battle humans, as all other creatures are engaged.”
    “Luther believed that one is “ridden” either by God or by the devil. ELCA Lutherans, acknowledging that all humankind is affected by the struggle between good and evil, believe that it is also our struggle, and that in this struggle against the “…old Satanic foe…God himself fights by our side with the weapons of the Spirit.”

    Perhaps in matters of faith, the better question might be to ask: "What scientific proof exists on the matter of Satan or God for that matter?"
