O.E. Satan, from L.L. Satan (in Vulgate, in O.T. only), from Gk. Satanas, from Heb. satan "adversary, one who plots against another," from satan "to show enmity to, oppose, plot against," from root s-t-n "one who opposes, obstructs, or acts as an adversary."
Now what does the Bible say in Mathew 5:25?
Agree with thine adversary quickly, whiles thou art in the way with him; lest at any time the adversary deliver thee to the judge, and the judge deliver thee to the officer, and thou be cast into prison.
Now lets look to the words "Hell", "Hades":
O.E. hel, helle, "nether world, abode of the dead, infernal regions," from P.Gmc. *haljo "the underworld" (cf. O.Fris. helle, Du. hel, O.N. hel, Ger. Hölle, Goth. halja "hell") "the underworld," lit. "concealed place" (cf. O.N. hellir "cave, cavern"), from PIE *kel- "to cover, conceal, save" (see cell).
Who is the dead? Are WE the dead of the world until we come out of her, and announce that we are alive? Have you ever seen the British Governments website and the Cesui Que Vie Act of 1?
I tend to believe that Act IS the Mark of the Beast.
And finally "Sin":
I tend to believe that Satan is the courts/judges/lawyers acting/practicing in the Satanic "spirit of the law" instead of the actual law itself, and "Hell" is the prisons they have built for us, that they will one day occupy themselves.
And he said, Woe vnto you also ye lawyers: for ye lade men with burdens grieuous to be borne, and ye your selues touch not the burdens with one of your fingers.
Woe unto you, lawyers! for ye have taken away the key of knowledge: ye entered not in yourselves, and them that were entering in ye hindered.
The Bible is rooted in Trust Law; it's almost a History of Law in and of itself. Some say (and I tend to believe) the Holy Trinity is:
Executor - Beneficiary - Trustee = God - We The People - Government
If we as living beings are the beneficiaries of the Last Living Will and Testament of God (The Holy Bible), who was the first Executor of the first Estate known as earth, then perhaps there is no actual creature or being named Satan or the Anti-Christ, but instead the spirit of all that is of evil (courts/judges/attorneys/prisons,etc.) and the good is within us as living Gods and Executors of our own Estate(s) or our own body/mind/soul, for which the most part, is of good and peace.
How peaceful would the world be, if we were not living in fear of Satan (ie: courts/judges/lawyers/prison/fines/IRS,etc)?
Anti-Christ = Everything that is diametrically opposed to good-right, and just in the world (Heaven on Earth).
Remember what the Founders carved in stone "In God We Trust"
I tend to believe the Bible is a history of the Law, and Satan is the antithesis of that Law.
