Why does satan attack believers more than nonbelievers ?

Report as
helixaqua

Because believers believe in Him and use Him as an excuse instead of taking responsibility in their own decisions and actions.

Satan doesn't bother people who don't believe because they are not doing anything that bothers him. He hates Christians. He does all he can to make Christians suffer and gets others to attack and do his bidding. These are souls he wanted and lost because Christ paid our price. He's a sore loser.

Yeah, sure.
What do you really think "Satan" does?
You think he makes you do the bad things you do?
You think he makes you lie? No. You choose to lie.
Then you decide "I'd rather not take credit for my own wrongs" and blame it on something that doesn't exist.

Allah says :

( 11 ) And We have certainly created you, [O Mankind], and given you [human] form. Then We said to the angels, "Prostrate to Adam"; so they prostrated, except for Iblees. He was not of those who prostrated.

( 12 ) [Allah] said, "What prevented you from prostrating when I commanded you?" [Satan] said, "I am better than him. You created me from fire and created him from clay."

( 13 ) [Allah] said, "Descend from Paradise, for it is not for you to be arrogant therein. So get out; indeed, you are of the debased.

( 14 ) [Satan] said, "Reprieve me until the Day they are resurrected."

( 15 ) [Allah] said, "Indeed, you are of those reprieved."

( 16 ) [Satan] said, "Because You have put me in error, I will surely sit in wait for them on Your straight path.

( 17 ) Then I will come to them from before them and from behind them and on their right and on their left, and You will not find most of them grateful [to You]."

( 18 ) [Allah] said, "Get out of Paradise, reproached and expelled. Whoever follows you among them - I will surely fill Hell with you, all together." Quran (7:11-18)

Because we as believers are a threat to Satan's cause, to kill, steal, and destroy, we as believers follow Jesus, who is the way the truth and the life, we open up our mouths and speak the the truth about Jesus, and Satan wants to stumble us, to try to make us doubt our faith so we become less effective as a weapon of spiritual warfare in Gods Army, that's why we as believers must be "sober and be vigilant for the devil our adversary walks around like a roaring lion seeking whom he may devour.

He hates God and God's people. He has already deceived un-believers, by making them not believe. His work is done with them. Satan is by nature a liar and his primary method with which he attacks human beings is through lies to deceive them into believing something false about God or God's plan in order to get them to rebel against God. He lies about who God is, what God is like, what we are like, what God desires for us to do, how to be saved, etc., etc., etc.
This is how he attacks us - through lies. The instrument he uses to spread these lies is unbelievers. These "schemes" or "strategic deception or lies" are ones that will be effective against us if we do not give the proper defense.

This is a little like those questions that ask whether Slender Man is real. Kids love to frighten themselves by thinking he is while the rest of us, realising he's only a fiction, are unaffected.

It's impossible to be attacked by Satan unless we believe he exists. If we do believe that then, like those Slender Man fans, we can become vulnerable and frighten ourselves.

Satan is the penultimate bogeyman.

Ah, Spiney, I'm so sorry. We shouldn't be laughing because this is the tragedy of religion. The churches get decent people to believe the most unmitigated rubbish, push it at them week after week, year after year, until you are unable to see it as the nonsense it is.

How could you? You're probably a nice, church-going person who associates with other church-going people, all believing the same thing, all strengthening each others' beliefs. In such an environment, reality slips away to become a fantasy, less real than that "other world" you've been taught awaits you when you die.

I'm not trying to belittle you. I truly regret that you've fallen victim to a system from which you seem unable to step back and see life as it really is.

I wish you well.

I mean, it's nice to think something happens, and Granny is still around somewhere, but... well... she isn't, is she? We have a life to live, we live it and then we die. And that's the end.

Religion prospers by promising eternal life, but they know nothing, nothing at all, so they lie, and people believe because they want to believe. Even the preachers want to believe, but belief isn't fact, is it? I've said this before, but I'll say it again - belief gets in the way of a search for knowledge. If you really want to KNOW, rather than believe, you have to suppress belief. It leads you astray.

Thank you for your story, Deb. I appreciate the description. It sounds like you went through some fairly rough waters, and I sympathize. You found something that helped you through, and it was your faith in God. I would never wish for you to lose that, or for someone else to take it away from you.

I only hope you see that this thing (faith) that you feel has been so beneficial to you is not universally beneficial. And the fact that not everyone agrees that God's word (which one?) is true, does not ensure irreparable differences. If you don't want others attempting to destroy your faith, please see that it is equally as bad for some to try and force their beliefs on others. Let life be lived, perhaps some will live with a constant eye on faith, perhaps others won't concern themselves with it at all. It will be ok.

Dodgy has it right when he says that if you don't believe in Satan, then Satan can't hurt you. I'd like to take it a little further, by pointing out that if you blame a hurt on Satan, because you believe in him, then you are fitting 'the hurt' into you're own frame of reference. If you didn't believe in Satan, you'd still fall off your bicycle, or whatever, but you wouldn't blame poor old Satan...
Once you start blaming Satan for your hurts, it's self-fulfilling - it strengthens your belief, and you get further and further away from being realistic about stuff. That, my good ole Ask pals, is how religion works...

I believe that Satan does not attack non-believers less than believers... But, if you believe that, I cannot argue. Also, I can explain...

Satan hates God. He also hates believers so therefore, if somebody is not on God's team, that makes Satan happy...

Satan would attack the believers more because they are not on his team. To get them to stop believing, he thinks he can just attack us because he thinks eventually we will give up and think that God is not protecting us which makes us stop believing.

Satan would attack the non-believers less because they are already on his team. Meaning that he will not attack them as much.

But she knows my beliefs (for the most part), we never discuss them, I leave her to hers and she leaves mine to me. The only time it becomes a subject is when she is in a hardcore Bipolar episode and then I'm satan (or one of his demons), one time we went to the store and I had to walk in front of her so she could keep an eye on me LMAO, it was actually comical.
Report as
Wow. Seedy, that sounds serious. Although the wife and I have reached some sort of neutral ground where it's understood she wouldn't be able to convert me (or re-convert me), and I would never be able to de-convert her, the subject does still occasionally come up.

I note with some satisfaction that her acceptance of things supernatural has gone way, way down. There's still Jesus. But I think she feels indebted in some weird, look-how-much-He-suffered-for-me type of way.

Does Islam have a corollary for that? Did Mohammed suffer for Muslims? Or was it the person Allah put in Jesus's place during the Crucifixion?
Report as
The Muslims do not feel their sins were removed by anyone, they are looking forward to Jesus to return and basically "rescue" the Islamic world and destroy the evil. Even though some have decided to take on the evil themselves and decide what is and is not evil, the majority of Muslims await for Jesus and God to handle it. Their redemption comes at death or when Jesus has his second coming. Momo may step in somewhere along the lines here and do some correcting me, but that is my basic understanding.

Such an answer from a woman called Sin? I think your husband might be a bit of a devil himself. :)

Ha ha My husband does have his hands full with me that's for sure! Dodgy, I think my dad is dying. He's been taken to the hospital from the VA rehab ( he was in a serious car wreck last Memorial Day May27th) and I think his body is shutting down. My mom died and I never got over that 13 years ago at only age 62 and my dad is now 83 in a few weeks. Anyway, I'm so upset.

So sorry to hear that. It's never easy. I hope they're able to keep him comfortable and, perhaps, they may be able to save him. If not he'll have an easy passing with your love to help him get through. It makes an enormous difference.

I'm not sure what he believes in now. He was atheist , then agnostic, then after his wreck where his neck broke last year he said he believed now. I just know he doesn't want to die but I guess his mind and body will get him used to the idea. My sister just died and my son died before that and my mom before that I'm just sick and tired of it all. I can't seem to get break in between.

There aren't any words, Sin. I can feel for you, and I do, but there's no way I can express that. I've been through that kind of pain but not in multiple doses as you've had to face. I can't begin to understand how devastated you must be. I'm so sorry.

@Betty-I am not going to answer any more of your questions if you aren't EVER going to acknowledge me ever in some sort of way so I can tell if you're even reading them or not. You never know, you may be staring at a person here finding it in her heart to try and grow in her beliefs and I cat tell if I'm on the right track or not here...

If you don't believe in monsters, you won't be afraid of them, you have to believe something exists, to fear it, or give it recognition.

I spent my early childhood, afraid of the devil, and gods vengeance, and then I learned to read and discovered logic and science. And my soul was "set free!"I was persecuted by parents,siblings,and friends. But I remained faithful to my beliefs. But I cannot pronounce them as fact. Enjoy your belief in satan and demons, you may be right.

Satan hates God and all who believe and follow him. Non-believers don't care about religion or God and they mean nothing to Satan.

That's right. Satan has already got the non-believers in his stronghold, so why worry about them? He's trying to get those who believe in the one true God.

He attacks strong believers because hes trying to make you bitter, so you will turn away from God and so you wont go to heaven. So would you rather endure a little here on your short time on earth and spend eternity in heaven being peaceful and happy, or have it good on your 80 years here and be in eternal torture in hell forever? So that's why he attacks believers, but I am strong in my faith.

Just a simple question....If God isn't real than how do people be so "lost" and then all of a sudden "discover" God? Just a question, for you all to answer in your opinion..

Because he's mad that we are fighting against his schemes and plotting. Because he really is scared of the power we can receive from God, and he knows that with God we are victorious. Non-believers aren't a threat to him, they unconsciously do what he likes them to do
Also (for us believers) Attacks from Satan are God's way to show his glory in us, to let us know to depend entirely on Him, and to seek his presence to arise victorious against Satan's attacks

Because he wants people to turn away from God for no good reason.
