What would the world be like if satan humbled himself and seek forgiveness letting God be right?

what would happen if the devil would stop committing evil and tell the world he has been wrong all this time and that he was sorry because he was there in the beginning

I think the world would be dull in a way. This is because there will not be life challenges and it would be the same procedures day in day out. It would not seem like a real world.

So do you think we need him just like we need God? Isn't this what we want a world without sin?

I think it would be...kinda great. Because it would be a world without evil. You'd think people would actually WANT a world without evil...but that's not the case either.

Zaruna, I agree I don't think the world would let evil go so many ppl prosper off the plight of the oppression of others. Probably the stock market would fall and one catastrophe after another simply because evil would be taken out of the equation . Wow thx that is thought provoking! Thx for your input.

The devil is not the creator of sin. It is our folly that creates sin. One can argue Satan temps us with sin, but sin itself lays outside the realm of Satan. Of course I view sin as the act of severing our relationship with God. The act is just the manifestation of that sin. Since we have free will, we create the sin. Just my thoughts thus far in my studies. God bless

Think about this: if the devil knows the word as well, wouldn't it be safe to say that he knows he's in serious trouble ? so therefore, whats making him continue on with his evil ways ! i believe he really cant help it, its built inside of him to be contrary to the Creator. he probably wants to be better, but for the words sake, he has no choice. im not giving him and evil a excuse, im just saying, have a broader prospective.

First, Satan (Lucifer) was one of the highest angels, perhaps the highest (Ezekiel 28:14). Lucifer-and all the angels-were continually in God's presence and had a complete knowledge of the glory of God, unobstructed by the things that keep mankind from knowing Him fully. Therefore, they had no excuse for rebelling against God and turning away from Him. For Lucifer and the other angels to rebel despite what they knew about God is the utmost of evil, and this most likely results in God's not giving Satan and the other fallen angels the opportunity to repent. Second, God did not provide a plan of redemption for the angels as He did for mankind.Finally, the Bible gives us no reason to believe they would repent even if God did give them the chance (1 Peter 5:8). The fallen angels seem completely devoted to opposing God and attacking God's people. The Bible tells us that one of the things God judges on is how much knowledge of Him a person possesses (Luke 12:48). The fallen angels, then, are even much more deserving of God?s wrath because of the exceedingly great knowledge they had about God. http://www.gotquestions.org/angels-repent.html

He will never repent, but if he did, that does not mean there won't be sin. Satan is not the one who causes us to sin, he simply tempts us. But he still greatly contributes to our sin by his influence. With our free will, we will sin by nature. But Satan still cannot repent. Why? This is not because God is lacking in mercy. The reason they cannot repent is rooted in their very nature as angels. Satan (or "the devil") and the other fallen angels (often called "demons") were created naturally good, but they became evil through a choice against God that was final and irreversible. Their act of rebellion is irrevocable (that is, cannot be taken back) because they possess a perfect angelic intellect which, unlike human intellect, is not darkened by ignorance. They could clearly see the true nature of their choice and all the consequences that would flow from it. As a result, their rebellion against God and His will was definitive. So, as the Catechism teaches, "There is no repentance for the angels after their fall, just as there is no repentance for men after death". (My answer continues in the comments)

Remember: Satan is only a creature; he is not God's "opposite." Being omnipotent, God has no opposite. Though Satan (and the other demons), like all angels, is powerful and has an intellect that far surpasses our own, we need not be afraid of him if we are in God's grace. Why God permits the activity of Satan is a "great mystery," but we know that cannot prevent God from fulfilling His will for man. In the end, St. Paul tells us that "in everything God works for good with those who love him". Through temptation, our wills can be strengthened to follow Jesus more faithfully and grow in holiness. Whenever we encounter a strong temptation by Satan, we can pray to Our Lady for strength, or pray the powerful prayer of St. Michael:

St. Michael the Archangel, defend us in battle. Be our protection against the wickedness and snares of the Devil. May God rebuke him, we humbly pray, and do thou, O holy prince of the heavenly host, by the power of God, cast into hell Satan and all the evil spirits who prowl throughout the world seeking the ruin of souls. Amen.

I understand you very well just wanted to see if anyone else could think of a world without evil, something we all need to meditate on rather than all the evil we see a world without end.i believe it's the utopia that could bring one peace, to me it would truly be the Kingdom of God on earth. A world where we all live and get along.

The devil is a nice excuse Christians have for not accepting our faults for the world being in its present state. We have no control over the Devil's actions, but we do have control over our own. Rather than ask a "what if" impossible scenario, what I'd we entered into the kingdom of heaven every day and helped spread its goodness? Would the world then be a better place? I'd hope so. I'm committed to bring that end to fruition. Will you join in?

Satan will be cast away into the sea of forgetfulness with all other sins, and evils, because he will never repent. That is the period when all tears will be wiped away and there will be no more hunger or thirst sickness or sorrow. No need of light because the glory of God will illuminate us. We will be one with God. In the interim we have a job to do like sharing this good news, and being a pattern for imitation. All four major religious systems agree on this truth.

Well said and true. That is my aim in life to help spread the good news through words and actions. Faith without action is dead. Love is an action!
