What does Satan Look like

By Edited Sep 14, 2016 1 3

We humans like to think that evil has a face or a persona. Satan was created so that people can differentiate the differences between good and evil. This was used a lot in books and stories from many different cultures and the like. We like to think Satan is a horned creature with hooves and carries around a pitchfork planning what evil he shall bring to us humans.

In the bible Satan was an angel who was the greatest of all angels and the most powerful. Knowing this Satan’s ego and pride became large and convinced himself and some angels to take the throne from God. God found out and punished Satan and his cohorts and sent them to the depths of Hell.

Personally, I believe that there is no way to know what Satan looks like. Like God he has no face or body, but yet we know they exist at least spiritually.

We like to think people who commit heinous crimes as having the devil inside them. What makes them commit these crimes and why. I mean does Satan show himself to the individual and tell him/her to do his bidding? Who knows, as humans we have the capacity to create as well as destroy things as well as each other.

What does Satan look like? Does he look like a handsome man wearing expensive Italian suits with women on his arm everywhere he goes? Does he live a fine luxurious life? We cannot fathom what he or she would look like. Just like God we cannot know what he or she would look like. We intend try to make a mental image of the person just like the painters who painted religious paintings. Paintings that include Satan come in a huge variety from hideous monster to a perfect angel.

I believe that in order to know how Satan looks like we would just have to look in the mirror. You see like I said earlier we have the capacity to create beautiful things and we also have the power to destroy and kill when need be. We all have a little of God and Satan within us all. The problem is that at times we let it out of our cage every now and then.

So when they say “What does Satan Look Like?” all you have to show them is their image in the mirror.

As long as we continue to see the purpose of life as being a fight against our perceived (or self-created) enemies, Satan will continue to be personified as something outside of ourselves.

Christ told the leaders of the Jewish people that Satan was their father, but he never said "where" Satan could be found. What he did say was that the Kingdom of Heaven was "within," but for some reason, most Christians don't believe that.

The mirror is what scares folks the most, even more than death itself. The goal is to be able to look into the mirror of our subconscious mind and see ourselves, exactly as we are, right now. But only 1 out of 100 sheep ever have enough courage to do that. Fear keeps us trapped and damned here in hell. It's kind of amusing that the place that Christians fear the most, is where they already are!

Thanks for the thought-provoking article. I've given you a thumbs up.

I could not agree more with your comment Lavender Rose. People are always afraid to see themselves as who they really are. If we look deeper i think that we would find that we as humans have the capacity to do good as well as evil. When will people realize that? As long as there are constant distractions and fighting amongst each other we would probably never will. There will be a few people brave enough to stare themselves at the mirror and except who they are. Until then we just have to hope that one day we will all understand this.

Thank you for your comment it was very thought provoking as well!

Do you people ever consider educating yourselves? Sheep mostly follow desert religions written down by shepherds.
