Is the serpent referenced in Genesis Satan? Is there evidence for this?

Do not think that I have come to abolish the Law or the Prophets; I have not come to abolish them but to fulfill them. For truly I tell you, until heaven and earth disappear, not the smallest letter, not the least stroke of a pen, will by any means disappear from the Law until everything is accomplished. Therefore anyone who sets aside one of the least of these commands and teaches others accordingly will be called least in the kingdom of heaven, but whoever practices and teaches these commands will be called great in the kingdom of heaven.

I have glorified You on earth by accomplishing the work You gave Me to do. John 17:4 (The words of Jesus :))

After this, knowing that everything had now been accomplished, and to fulfill the Scripture, Jesus said, “I am thirsty.” John 19:28

Yes. He contradicted Jesus, so of course he is a liar.
He did not contradict Jesus, Buffy...He expounded beautifully, the meaning of the TRUE PROMISED ¨LAND¨ and ¨INHERITANCE¨ which GOD was speaking of from the beginning...but had been kept a mystery...and could not be revealed until the fullness of time had come..

CHRIST gave Paul such understanding into the HIDDEN MYSTERIES which can only be known by CHRISTŚ SPIRIT so magnificently at work in Paul

That's under debate :

Have you ever wondered why is a snake, which is a symbol of destruction[4] used ironically as a symbol of healing? Well, the answer lies deep sown in history when Moses, around 1400 BC, used the bronze serpent erected on the pole to cure the people who were bitten by snakes.[5] The other reasons why serpent has been used is the shedding of the skin that indicated longevity and immortality

Symbols
Interesting, I was mostly say "yup" to the troll part.
I wonder if I can find the avatar picture in google images... :D

1 Corinthians 10:23 All things are lawful, but not all things are profitable. All things are lawful, but not all things edify.
Not to mention that the issue is not what she wears elsewhere, even if it is absolutely nothing at all.

The issue is what is appropriate apparel (for a woman'a avatar) on a Christian site.

Heh, this reminds me of a couple that joined some time ago... the woman was indignant that people pointed out how inappropriate her avatar pic was, but then some of both the husband and wife's posts came across like swingers looking for partners :oops::giggle::geek:

TY for your post -
hub and I would very much like to see your scriptural references on this,,...
I was answering, in too few words, that people often think John the Apostle is the author of The Book of Revelation, since a poster answered the OP’s question from Revelation about the serpent in Genesis and the OP had brought up John the Apostle.

Are you a Christian though? Your status states as unsure. Why are you unsure? What is causing doubt?
If a person does not know that Christ in them, they have failed the test:

2 Corinthians 13:5. Examine yourselves to see whether you are in the faith; test yourselves. Do you not realize that Christ Jesus is in you--unless, of course, you fail the test?

It's not sufficient when there are DIFFERENT AUTHORS. That's like me writing a book and adding it to the Bible, and using that to project a meaning onto what Moses said


The only manuscript that counts and where the Old Testament even comes from is the Torah. And the Torah, like the Aramaic in the New Testament when Eshu (Jesus) said He saw ... fall as lightning is the word, "Adversary."

So the serpents name, the devil's name, the dragons name, even the name used as Satan is "the Adversary." Because he is the Adversary to our belief and God!

Were the councils instructed by God?


God never needed man's advice before and the Council in 325 A.D. definitely conveined by their own accord, not by the instruction of God.
