‘The devil exists as a symbolic reality, not as a personal reality,’ Fr Arturo Sosa claimed.
The superior general of the Society of Jesus has said that the devil is a symbol, but not a person.
The devil, “exists as the personification of evil in different structures, but not in persons, because is not a person, is a way of acting evil. He is not a person like a human person. It is a way of evil to be present in human life,” Fr Arturo Sosa, SJ, said Wednesday in an interview with Italian magazine Tempi.
“Good and evil are in a permanent war in the human conscience and we have ways to point them out. We recognize God as good, fully good. Symbols are part of reality, and the devil exists as a symbolic reality, not as a personal reality,” he added.
Sosa’s remarks came after he participated in a panel discussion at a Catholic gathering in Rimini, Italy, organized by the Communion and Liberation ecclesial movement.

To reject that the person of Satan exist is an outright rejection of the authority ofthe bible. The consequence of such a rejection is terrible. Because if Satan do not exist, there is no God of the bible. You can not cherry pick from verses in the Word of God. If the Messiah has told us lies about Satan, than the saviour of the World him self is a fiction. And the Christian faith is a hoax. Simply a fairy tale put together by some Jews.
Satan is mentioned 47 times in the New International version of the Bible. 54 in the New King James translation. Here are some of them:
And the Lord said to Satan, “From where do you come?” So Satan answered the Lord and said, “From going to and fro on the earth, and from walking back and forth on it.”
And the Lord said to Satan, “The Lord rebuke you, Satan! The Lord who has chosen Jerusalem rebuke you! Is this not a brand plucked from the fire?”
And He said to them, “I saw Satan fall like lightning from heaven.
Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil walks about like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour.
Behold: Do not listen to these men of Satan, the broad of wipers based in the Vatican. The Roman Catholic priesthood serve Lucifer. They are blind men, who lead both you and others into the pit. Read and believe the Word of God, and have Jesus the Messiah as the authority in your life. Amen.
