Hey, just something I’ve noticed over a while of attending various youth groups and conferences. I think that Protestants have a bad view of Satan. I say that because every time they talk about him they always say he has no power anymore and that Jesus’s death on the Cross took away all power that Satan had. Whenever they have their version of confession, they always bind Satan by “the Blood of Jesus”. If Satan had a rope wrapped around him for as many times I’ve heard Protestants bind him, he’d be so small I could fit him in a matchbox. I always hear them binding Satan and cursing Satan and driving Satan out. I think that, in a way (correct me if I’m wrong), that Protestants think they can control Satan to an extent. To me it seems that they can’t comprehend that Satan has real power over people. Jesus’s death didn’t take away Satan’s power, it just gave people a way to protect themselves from it! I always hear Protestants telling Satan to go away, or stop doing something, with the (IMHO) naive assumption that Satan will do what they say. I don’t know if Protestants realize fully that Satan rebelled against God, and he has the power to tempt others to do the same. By the way, before any Lutherans or Presbyterians jump on my back about how they’re not like that, I’ve noticed this more in Evangelical/Fundamental/Pentecostal Christians.
