There are rewards promised in the Bible. "Look, I am coming soon! My reward is with me, and I will give to each person according to what they have done. (Revelation 22:12, NIV) The one who plants and the one who waters have one purpose, and they will each be rewarded according to their own labor. (1 Corinthians 3:8, NIV) According to Bible ...

No, it is not. It is an old saying, but there is no biblical basis for it whatsoever.

This seems like your main question: "But if God created Satan (originally) as a good (i.e., sinless) being who only entertained good thoughts, what was the original cause of Satan's evil or sinful thoughts?" That's tough to find a scriptural answer to because the first historically noted thing about Satan was that he was proud. Isaiah 14:12,13 KJV How ...

There are indirect passages that state this. John 3:16-17 ESV For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but in order that the world might be saved through him. John the Baptist had this to say: John ...

God's message to King Saul through prophet Samuel, after Saul disobeys God, is: 1 Samuel 15:22-23 (RSVCE) 22 And Samuel said, “Has the Lord as great delight in burnt offerings and sacrifices, as in obeying the voice of the Lord?

The Bible doesn't have any clear and unambiguous statements of the second person of the trinity saying that he would come to earth to save humanity before he did so, but once he was here, Jesus did indicate that it was a completely deliberate move which he chose himself. One great passage which talks about this is John 10:6-18. It should give you a good ...

I didn't remember that statement from Jesus in the Bible, either, so I did a text search of a number of translations on Bible Gateway for that phrase, and it does not appear in any that I searched. Searching for individual words also does not show a result of any verse that substantially matches the meaning of the phrase. The closest verse I can think of ...

This is because the person is looking for the answer and stopping at Jesus - without continuing to God. Yes, they are one and the same, but bear with me. We know God does this for us because He LOVES us: John 3:16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. ...

Satan (the Enemy, Adversary, Evil One, etc) never rebelled against God, nor was he (to our knowledge) ever in Heaven or an Angel. The Isaiah 14:12-13 verse is not talking about Satan at all. The word "Lucifer" is derived from the latin "lux ferre", which simply means "Bringer or Light" or "Bringer of Dawn" or similar incantations depending on who you ask. ...
