I believe the Bible,
and I believe in Jesus and God,
but I don't believe

6 Now there was a day when the sons of God
came to present themselves before the Lord,
and Satan also came among them.
13 And He was in the wilderness forty days
being tempted by Satan;
command that these stones become bread.”
throw Yourself down
(from the pinnacle of the temple)
“All these things will I give You,
if You fall down and worship me.”
To incited God against Job,
"to ruin him without cause."
8 ... Your adversary, the devil,
prowls about like a roaring lion,
seeking someone to devour.
keep the commandments of God
and hold to the testimony of Jesus.
11 in order that no advantage
be taken of us by Satan;

and does not stand in the truth,
because there is no truth in him.

1 Now the serpent was more crafty
than any beast of the field
which the Lord God had made.
And he said to the woman,
“Indeed, has God said,
‘You shall not eat
from any tree of the garden’?”
2 And the woman said to the serpent,
“From the fruit of the trees of the garden we may eat;

which is in the middle of the garden,
God has said,
‘You shall not eat from it or touch it,
lest you die.’”
4 And the serpent said to the woman,
“You surely shall not die!
5 “For God knows that in the day you eat from it
your eyes will be opened,
and you will be like God,
knowing good and evil.”
9 Then Satan answered the Lord,
“Does Job fear God for nothing?
10 “Hast Thou not made a hedge about him
and his house
and all that he has, on every side?
Thou hast blessed the work of his hands,
and his possessions have increased in the land.

shall from the flesh reap corruption,
but the one who sows to the Spirit
shall from the Spirit reap eternal life.
16 But I say, walk by the Spirit,
and you will not carry out the desire of the flesh.
19 Now the deeds of the flesh are evident,
immorality, impurity, sensuality,
sorcery, enmities, strife, jealousy,
outbursts of anger, disputes,
dissensions, factions, 21 envying,
and things like these,
of which I forewarn you
just as I have forewarned you
that those who practice such things
shall not inherit the kingdom of God.
I urge you as aliens and strangers
to abstain from fleshly lusts,
