I read something online recently that sparked a thought in my mind and today as I was reading the Gospel of Luke that same question resurfaced. It’s this: In the story in the Gospels where Jesus casts “Legion” out of the Gerasene Demoniac, the demons plead with Jesus not to send them into the abyss, or Hell, so they ask to be allowed to go into a herd of pigs instead. Jesus agrees and casts them out of the possessed man and into the pigs, which then run off a cliff. So the question is this; why would Jesus agree to the demons wishes and not just send them back to Hell, but instead send them into a herd of pigs, presumably destroying the livelihood of one or more farmers.
I know this question seems like something an Atheist would ask, but I ask it so that I have an answer if someone of no faith should bring this up.
