Why do people blame God when bad things happen,why don't they blame Satan and his demons ?

Report as

Love your logic! Satan is the father of the lie and his biggest lie is having people think he doesn't exist so he can wreak havoc and have everyone blame it on God. You don't see people being told they have mental health issues because they believe in God, but if a person says they're being tormented by a demon it's a different story!

Becuz many people think he sits back and has a jolly time watching their pain n struggle. Many have been lied to when their family member or friend dies and the priest lies and says god needed another angel.

usually when something bad happens to me I do one of two things 1. I blame myself if i have determined it was my own fault. 2. I blame another human being(s) if I have determined it was their fault. People blame "god" because they were taught, like FM stated above, that god does everything for a reason. They are taught When something bad happened god is punishing you for sinning. So I guess you could say that religion is to blame for instilling that type of reasoning in people.

You were lied to of course. Denominational dogma has a lot to answer for. Now...those things God does do are done for His purpose but not everything that happens is done by God. Esp bad stuff. Satan is the basis of all that is bad and evil but it cant control us unless we allow it. Most bad things happen because of bad choices made by humans. God allows it because its free will and He will rarely cancel anyones free will. Other bad things like violent weather simply occure due to natural processes set in place at the beginning of time and subsequently corrupted when sin and evil entered the world.

There is NO WAY humanly possible for you or anybody else to be able to determine which bad things god does for his own purpose, or which things are Satan based The whole satan made me do it thing is a cop out for not taking responsibility for one's actions. I agree with humans having and exercising free will, but do not understand what you mean when you stated that violent weather was corrupted by sin and evil, please explain.

In a sense, it isn't exactly satan's fault sometimes. He tempts man and man gives in to the temptation, and then sin is committed and we reap the concequences.

Bizarrely enough many who claim to believe in God and heaven still refuse to believe in satan and hell.
And magdalene is correct as well, tho it is because of temptation by satan that people do bad things it is still a matter of free will and choice. Most bad things in this world happen because humans make poor choices and choose to do them. Satan cant control us unless we give it the power to do so. Satan is the basis of all that is bad but humans with free will are generally the perpetrators. Other things like illness and tragic accidents may be more directly caused by satan more often but even in those circumstances such things occure because of poor life choices - poor diet, smoking, DUI, etc - by themselves or someone else.

And people thank GOD when something good happens ... They say"Thank God"...

This is because, people believe in God, not in Satan.

If you beleave in God,you must beleave in Satan,or you would be calling God a liar,but I agree we don't thank God enough,In Satans world ( Hell )there are no flowers,trees,water,oceans,clouds,beaches,because thay all come from God.

So, does fire come from satan? I mean, is fire a creation of satan because it is in hell?

Because its easier than taking responsibility for their choices.

Because If nothing can happen without the consent of god, then how come evil/bad happens? If there's an "all powerful", "all good" & "all just" god, then he ought to be equally responsible for the bad as for the good. Is it not only obvious that if god exists evil must not? He is to be blamed, because for a god to allow evil, while he can eradicate evil, is an "act of evil" in itself; if nothing else.

When bad things happen and people blame God that is only because they "do not know him." (1 John 4:8) - God is love. There is Good and Evil - There is God and there is Satan. Satan is real - Revelation 12:9. With God there is no Evil. In God's due time he will destroy the wickedness on earth. However, he is ALLOWING

People do not believe Satan has any power; some do not believe he is real. It boggles the mind.
