Deathisdefeated

O death, where is thy sting? O grave, where is thy victory?

I have stated in my bible study groups that satan is given too much credit and he isn't ruling in this world because he was defeated by Christ who is ruling and reigning now. I was universally rebuked for saying so.

They do NOT want to hear that Satan isn't reigning. To their Pre-mil, pre-trib  worldview, Christ has NOT defeated Satan. "Just look around you", "Would there be so much evil if Christ were ruling now?". 

I don't know how they can see Satan (or his demons) all around them but can't see Christ in this world at all.

Does anyone have some really good answers for these poor people? I feel sorry for them. My pastor says he gets up every morning having to wrestle with Satan.

I can no more "prove" that the pigs being sent off the cliff was a curse, than you can prove that "demons" exist and that there are "demoniacs".

Unfortunately however, you fail to understand the prophetic nature of what happened to the pigs. Never mind, because I'm quitting this fruitless discussion right now
