[quote="Singalphile" post=5215]I've always thought of the devil as a spirit, similar to an angel. I've never heard anyone say that he has a physical body. I don't reckon he does, but that does not imply that he is eternal or immortal or uncreated, to my mind. A spirit being is created and can be destroyed just like anything else, right? As you all know, only God has/possesses immortality ([url=http://biblehub.com/1_timothy/6-16.htm]1 Tim 6:16[/url]). As for the difference between eternal life and immortality, I can't see much practical difference. It seems to me that the Greek word for "eternal" does have a qualitative aspect to it (i.e., "of an/the age") along with the apparent "everlasting"-ness. To my mind, Satan's fate does not need to be the same as man's fate. I don't know if it's a good thing for me to say, but I hope that he is destroyed in the end. The idea of locking him up forever reminds me of something a movie villain would do. You know, the kind where you role your eyes and say, "why not just kill him and get it over with!" (In the movies, the good guy always escapes.) Of course, I know God is all-powerful. Whatever He intends for devils and demons will of course be for the best.[/quote]
