When u carry a Bible, the devil gets a headache.

 

The Bible is all about the "devil". He is indeed the Antagonist while Jesus/"god" is the Protagonist. It is comprised with fictional stories of battles between them for use as "proof/evidence" for the followers. To think of him as a actual force is like believing in the power of "I do believe in fairies (tinkerbell)" or "Bloody Mary/ Candy Man". Popularity comes with the constant repetition/reminiscing of a subject/event. So, no. I do not think your ficitonal friend gets tired of you remembering him and telling others of what "evil" he can do. Keep him alive and support him, why don't ya?

 

When u open it, he collapses.

 

Since this book is his "life line" no, this is not true. Thinking of the way the book and it's contents are used to profess a fearful love for its abstract characters is amazing. The threats, accusations, immoral acts and injustices are in multitude. Oh, and what is the most advertised incentive given to follow the pack....? The devil and the possible things he can do to you. Ughh, scarey huh. 

 

When he sees u reading it, he faints.

 

Now lets look at a definition of Read. To read means to "to look at carefully so as to understand the meaning of (something written, printed, etc.)(understand/interpret)", "to utter aloud or render in speech (preach/recite)","to have such knowledge of (a language) as to be able to understand things written in it".

 

Now it seems that believers have the understand/interpret and preach/recite parts down good. But, when you get to the "having the knowledge to", they fall very short. Maybes the faint that happens comes out of laughter to see them go so far with their madness and falling so short. I mean, how can you claim to "know' what you are relaying to others with out the "knowledge to be able to"?

 

 When he see u living it, he flees.

 

I've said this before, now I will again. Go ahead and live like it's 100 A.D., if you want to.This line I really believe is really taken lightly by believers since they almost never "live it". The negative within religion and beliefs would all be gone if they actually used some (not all) of the lessons and values. As long as this system is used as a weapon for force or fear, the devil will always be there.

 

And just when ur about 2 re-post this, he'll try to discourage u. I just defeated him!

 

Believers should know that the "devil" is in their minds and hearts everyday that they misuse their abilities (seeing/reading/writing/speaking) in order to spread discontent and fear. These should be used for motivation, understanding, and love. As soon as theists begin to do this, yes, your friend the "devil" will have been defeated.
