If Satan confessed his sins, and REALLY REALLY meant it, would he be forgiven, or is it entirely too late?

Report as

He was already given that chance. He mockery of Christ and heaven. That's why he was damned. He had the chance to repent

How can you say you've commited a sin, if you don't believe in God. He's gonna save your life - sooner than ya think. Acknowledge it.

he hasn't shown me he's real yet, i doubt he will do so in the future. just like when you kooks always say the world is going to end...it doesn't, can't wait for December to say "i told you so" yet again

Just because you don't believe doesn't give you an excuse to be disrespectful. Act like an adult.

Seems to me that God used to be too strict back in the day. Now people can pretty much do whatever they want, confess, and then it's all good???? He would never confess though b-cuz he wants to be God, not get God's forgiveness as he doesn't feel as though he did anything wrong in the first place

What's the point of confession? What's the point of bringing in a priest B4 a person is put to death?
Report as
Our salvation rests upon the redeeming work of Jesus Christ; and not upon our own self-righteousness. However, no believer has God's permission to sin and Hebrews 12:6-8 promises that God will chastise his children who do live in sin. No genuine believer can live in sin and truly be happy, because the Holy Spirit of God will convict. Nevertheless, our salvation is not conditional upon our works, good or bad. Salvation is the unconditional gift of God-paid for by Jesus' precious redeeming blood (1st Peter 1:18,19).

The person being put to death has ever right to confess his sins, and if he means it, he will be. Although the story of the criminal on the cross demonstrates that last-minute conversions are possible, the Bible warns us to repent now, without waiting another moment. The Bible warns us concerning the brevity of the human lifespan.

Are you saying because God can forgive a horrible sinner, that means I don't want to be forgiven of my so called "minor" sins? If you are saying you are better than they are that would be called self-righteous pride, that God hates.

I love when people put words in my mouth. I didn't say anything other than the words I wrote. Everyone can and will be forgiven if they truly mean it is all I'm saying, those are my words, none of the stuff that you said is what I said

Satan is not human and Jesus became human to make a way for salvation. He is our kinsman redeemer. Like in the book of Ruth.

NO one knows that answer only God
We can guess and say..
But God only knows..
But guessing I don't think he would be..
He would maybe be forgiven
But I don't think he would be able to live in Gods Kingstown

I wouldn't hold my breath. God did not provide a plan of redemption for the angels as He did for mankind. 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.

No, there's no reason for us to pray for Satan to have a change of heart and be converted.

This would imply that God does not know everything, and that Satan's end prophesied in scripture (I.e., bound for eternity in hell) is unjust. So, time to rewrite prophecy, if he can repent at this point.

This question brings up a point I have always wondered, god gave free will to man, but not to angels, so how could satan rebel?

That's the point, Satan wasn't an angel as Christians believe. He was a spirit made of fire. Angels are made of light, Satan wasn't.

lucifer is often called the fallen angel or chief among the angels of god.

Where does the Bible say that angels didn't have free will?

The Satan does not sin. The Satan is chartered by God to do God's "dirty" work for Him.

Satan (means adversary) and the other bad, or fallen, angels, each committed only one sin: the sin of disobeying God, because of their pride, that is, of prideful disobedience.
God had told all of the Angels, beforehand, that whether they obeyed, or didn't obey, it would determine their fate forever. No repentance, no second chance. Also, when anyone goes to Hell, it's forever, too.
That's it, in a nutshell.
I hope this clarifies. Even helps some.
Excellent question! Glad you asked it! Frank

If Satan's forgiven, god would become a non-essential. God & Satan are compulsorily depended upon one another. In the absence of the one, the other becomes void. If god has to remain god, he can't help but keep Satan as an outcast. Just remember this punchline: NO SATAN, NO GOD!
