Who has killed more, Satan or God?

And the LORD said unto Satan, Whence comest thou? Then Satan answered the LORD, and said, From going to and fro in the earth, and from walking up and down in it. Job 1:7

In a previous post, I counted the number of people that were killed by God in the Bible. I came up with 2,476,633, which, of course, greatly underestimates God's total death toll, since it only includes those killings for which specific numbers are given. No attempt was made to include the victims of Noah's flood, Sodom and Gomorrah, or the many plagues, famines, fiery serpents, etc., with which the good book is filled. Still, 2 million is a respectable number even for world class killers.
But how does this compare with Satan? How many did he kill in the Bible?
Well I can only find ten, and even these he shares with God, since God allowed him to do it as a part of a bet. I'm talking about the seven sons and three daughters of Job.
There was a man in the land of Uz, whose name was Job ... And there were born unto him seven sons and three daughters.
...
And the LORD said unto Satan, Hast thou considered my servant Job, that there is none like him in the earth, a perfect and an upright man, one that feareth God, and escheweth evil? Then Satan answered the LORD ... put forth thine hand now, and touch all that he hath, and he will curse thee to thy face. And the LORD said unto Satan, Behold, all that he hath is in thy power; only upon himself put not forth thine hand. So Satan went forth from the presence of the LORD.
...
And there was a day when his sons and his daughters were eating and drinking wine in their eldest brother's house...And, behold, there came a great wind from the wilderness, and smote the four corners of the house, and it fell upon the young men, and they are dead; and I only am escaped alone to tell thee. -- Job 1:1-19
So it seems that both Satan and God share the blame (or the credit) for these killings. If so, then the tally would be:

killings
God 2,476,633
Satan 10
No contest.

Update
I've tried to assign numbers to the un-numbered killings in the Bible. You can see the detailed list here.
The results were even more lopsided: 25 million (plus or minus a few million) for God; 60 for Satan.

Here is a more complete table.
numbered killings estimated total killings
God 2,476,633 25 million
Satan 10 60
Much more information about God's killings, with a chapter on each of the 135 killing events, can be found int the book:

Bible is true, not every word is LITERALLY true

What a silly foolish argument. I am continually astounded by peoples rationalization of their own human shortcomings. One thing a person must first understand if you truly want to discuss the BIBLE as Literature or FACT is that if you intent to debunk it based on it's factual correctness you must first accept a few things.

Number 1. If you want to argue that God is "wrong" or evil for killing people you must first acknowledge that IF there is a GOD who created man, man would be his creation and subject to God's authority, period.

Number 2. We must also understand that GOD created man with two aspects or "lives" one on the porch "earth" outside the mansion "heaven", and the second either inside the mansion with him or removed from his presence "hell".

Number 3. If God created man with these aspects and gave them free will to choose which second life they wished to have, in the mansion with him or removed from his presence, it is man's choices that determines which second aspect they acquire when they leave the first aspect of life on the porch.

Number 4. If we then acknowledge that IF there was a creator GOD and he made these creatures "man" with free will to determine their abode for the second aspect, would it be "wrong" for him to decide when and how those people would be moved from one aspect to the other?

Childbirth is a very painful and dangerous thing, yet women repeatedly have children after suffering through it, why is that? Could it be that the pain associated with Birth "death" fade following the action and the life after overshadows any suffering that might incidentally occur when we are BORN, in this life or the Next?

Why do people believe in evolution and accept it when it is obviously nonsense. Is it because it is a convenient answer to the religious alternative of an all loving and wise creator/fabricator (God) which they cannot accept. It is obvious that if there is an entity called God he/it is evil, malicious and a grand deceiver. If evolution is obvious nonsense (which it is), and there is not a loving wise creator what is the truth? And what is the meaning of life?
A book was published in 2007 called ‘The Testament of Gideon Mack’. It is about a Church of Scotland minister who claims to have met the Devil (Satan) in an underground cave. The end of his life saw Mack discredited as a lunatic and castigated by his kirk. It is acceptable to many people to believe in a loving, caring God but not an evil entity called Satan. Yet the reality is obvious. There is no sign at all of a loving, caring, all-powerful God but every sign that if there is an unseen controlling entity it/he makes the biblical Satan look like a Sunday school teacher by comparison. During the past 120 years, over 200 million people have been killed by the deliberate acts of violence of other people. This excludes people that have died from causes such as famine, disease, flood, earthquakes etc. When we add the deaths pain and suffering from these it is clear to see (but who does) that this place where we all live is very ugly and evil.
………………………………...................................................................
It is more than a 50% certainty that your death will not be pleasant. The percentage chance of you dieing peacefully in a bed surrounded by loved ones is not good. The reality is fear of dying, cancer, Alzheimer’s disease, painful infirmity, and all the indignities that come with old age. What intelligent person would want to bring another into this world with the near certainty of that happening? But with all the evidence clear to see and evaluate nobody comes to the correct conclusion.
………………………………................................................................
What is the absolute (complete, perfect, pure, independent) truth? Is it unimaginably complex that no human can understand or so simple that a reasonably intelligent child could? Is there an evil, vicious and malicious entity (Satan)? And is the all knowing, all understanding, perfect in love God only a fairy tale for naïve religious people to believe in? The answer to the absolute truth of these questions is there for you to see, evaluate and come to the correct conclusion based on logic and facts. But you would have to put aside everything that you have come to know and understand and start again.

look god isnt real... he cant be... at least not the way that christianity portrays him... if god created the world than he created reality. and if you think about it the bible and how we veiw god and satan is completely black and white. god is pure good satan pure evil. and in the end good wins. now doesnt that seem a little too human for a being that calles himself a god. also the rules for sin and for good are black and white. killing 10 people to save 1000000 is still a sin in gods eyes. god cant be real because if he is then he holds reality to a standard of black and white. the complete opposit if what it really is evil and good are both just points of view. and to call those who dont beilive in an all mighty benevolent being who watches and controlls everything we do brianwashed. well if that isnt the horse calling the saddle brown.

Does everyone on here, especially the religious believers know that we sent a probe to orbit Saturn and land on one of its moons called titan which has some sort of liquid on its surface which experts believe to be methane? We also have two rovers on mars that discovered proof that water use to be on the planet. Also there is ice at Mars north and south poles. Did you know that NASA is planning to send men to mars in a few years? Why more than half of religious believers claim that the world was going to end in the year 2000? Nothing happened and every religious person fell silent and this has been forgotten. No they say no one knows when GOD is coming! Sorry for going off topic. Why is the bible bias to women? I am male by the way. Why is the bible so Hierarchal? Hint look at ancient socialist cultures that practiced so called Polytheistic religions only to be discovered by Monotheistic religious believers who saw their system of belief as superior to these poly believers and therefore lay waste to them and forced them to convert to their faith in the name of God!!
Also does anyone see that the bible was of Hebrew origin? Adam and Eve the first person to be created but the bible does not mention anything about where Cain got his wife from and even her name is not mentioned. Any takers?

chivas said...

People who think god made all people so it's ok if he kills one or a few millions, are idiots.

I have a male cat and a female cat. I can allow them to have kittens or not. If I do, it's NOT ok to kill them just because I allowed them to exist!

"Yet the LORD longs to be gracious to you; he rises to show you compassion. For the LORD is a God of justice. Blessed are all who wait for him!"
Isaiah 30:18

May God help you all to find the truth. Whether you believe in God or not, may you have faith that truth is good and that maybe we don't understand everything. If you believe in a God that is good, then have faith that all He does has a reason, that in the midst of suffering and death, He is still in control, that He still has our best interests in mind
I don't know about you all, but if I knew that what GOd wants in my life is better than what I want in my life and if I know that God wants whats best, then I wouldn't mind God having to do what He needs to do, whether that be allowing me to be in sickness or difficulties.
Like the bible says, God's love is better than life itself and personally love is one of those wonderful things in life, often unexplicable. I would give my life to know God's love, cause without love in life, life doesn't seem much worth living. And perhaps we just don't quite understand GOd's love, which is why we question what God does. When He gave His only son, I highly doubt it was easy or cruel of His part, but it must of crushed His heart, but He loved us so much and Jesus loved us so much that it was all worthwhile so that we could know what it would mean to live loved and with a purpose. May God bless you all.

If you would be a real seeker after truth, it is necessary that at least once in your life you doubt, as far as possible, all things. Rene Descartes
The first precept was never to accept a thing as true until I knew it as such without a single doubt. Rene Descartes
What is absolutely true is always correct, everywhere, all the time, under any condition. An entity's ability to discern these things is irrelevant to that state of truth." - Steven Robiner
'Tis strange,-but true; for truth is always strange;
Stranger than fiction: if it could be told,
How much would novels gain by the exchange!
How differently the world would men behold! ….Lord Byron 1823
………………………………...........................................................................................
The religious sites that I have looked at on the Internet present a similar view. The people who look at these sites enter a naïve make-believe fairy tale world where logic and reality do not apply. ………………………………..................................................................
To have no doubt about things thought to be true does not make them so. This would apply even to what God thinks (if he/it exists). Many people accept things that they think are true without making any effort to prove otherwise. Yet the truth exists. Not owned by me, by you, or by God. All people on this planet live in a mind frame of acceptance; everyone accepts the world as presented to them. They live in the small bubble of their perceived reality never doubting, never questioning. They receive without question all that the scientists, physicists, astronomers, philosophers, religious leaders etc tell and have told them. The world is highly complex. Space vehicles, jet planes, motor cars, computers, video machines etc. The majority accept and use them without knowing or caring how they work. They also accept all the passed down explanations and understandings of everything from evolution to homeopathy, from what is right to what is wrong. The search for absolute truths does not bother or concern them. Most would say that there is no such thing as absolute truths. They would rather live with the accepted beliefs than question, to search and find out for themselves. They are as people in a dream but the dream illusion is perfect in its deception. They will never open their eyes beginning to see and understand.
………………………………......................................................................
Astronomers can only account for 4% of the universe. They theorise that the missing part is made up of 22% dark matter and 74% dark energy. The universe is behaving in a way that contradicts the understood laws of physics and no one knows why.
The estimated age of the earth is 4.5 billion (4,500,000,000) years. Life is thought to have started 3.5 billion (3,500,000,000) years ago. The fossil record appears to start suddenly about 600 million years ago. All the worlds mammals are thought to have evolved from a small shrew/mouse type creature that lived 65 million years ago at the time the dinosaurs became extinct. Man (Hominid species) emerged during the Pleistocene epoch from 1,808,000 to 11,550 years ago the descendents of ape like creatures that lived 2.5 million years ago. The time lines are not logical. For 63 million years there must have been enormous changes and diversification but for the past 2.5 million nothing. Supposedly, all the many different kind of mammals that live now evolved from a single source (a small mouse like mammal) over a period of 63 million years. Then evolution suddenly stopped.
……………………………….....................................................................
Look round you, open your eyes. The total number of living species runs into millions. Think of the enormous complexity and symmetry of every living thing. Think of the many different types of butterflies with there intricate wing markings. Think of the thousand types of exotic fish in tropical waters. Marvel at the complexity of the eye and the enormously complex structure of the human body. Think of the multitude of insects and beetles. See the many species of birds with their intricate feather markings. Darwin gave us the theory/idea that it all came about by small accidental changes over a long period of time, which he called Natural Selection, the process by which evolution occurs. Putting aside for one moment the question of how life started; not even over an infinite time would we arrive accidentally at the enormous complexity and symmetry of life that we have on earth. The only thing that will come from chaos is chaos.
………………………………..........................................................................
The human brain contains more than 100 billion (100,000,000,000) neurons. My personal PC has 149 GB of storage. 149 Gigabytes is 149,000,000,000. That means my PC has more storage capacity than my brain. Nobody understands how the brain stores and retrieves memory, makes us dream and enables us to become thinking aware emotional beings. It is a complete mystery. Martin Rees (cosmologist) said, “What is remarkable is that atoms have assembled into entities which are somehow able to ponder their origins”. What he should have said is “From all the material that came into existence very soon after the theoretical Big Bang it is impossible for life to start”. “Unintelligent atoms will always be that no matter what combinations they are joined in”. So, how are we thinking, living , human animals if we are made of cells, molecules, elements which in turn are made from individual unthinking atoms?

The profile of God is of an eternal entity morally perfect and wise with absolute power to do whatever it/he desires and is the maker of everything. It /he desires/demands to be loved, admired, worshiped, knelt before and obeyed for reasons of the preceding qualities. Consider how puerile this is. If you were the father of a young boy or girl you would not say ‘Because I am wiser than you and can do many things that you can not and was responsible for you being here kneel down and worship me’. If you did so, you would be mad. That is absolutely true of the biblical God. Open your eyes and think. At this point, I should point out that the biblical Satan desires the same as God that is for you to kneel down and worship him.
Worship (OE weordhscipe (WORTH, -SHIP)) worthiness, merit, recognition, honour & respect, reverent homage or service paid to God, adoration or devotion, adore as divine etc, etc.
For the purpose of this discussion let us suppose that an entity (God or whoever..the whoever is very important) designed and made/fabricated the Universe and everything in it. Remembering that he is perfect in every way; would he want or desire to make anything that was flawed? Or being God would not all of his works be perfect as he supposedly is? Consider your body. How extremely fallible it is in so many ways. Your reproductive areas (the penis, vagina etc ) are right next to the part of your body that excretes waste matter (faeces). Would you design it like that, are you better than God? If you were living from before 200 years in the past how disgusting it must have been. Even now if society broke down and you had no soap or toilet paper think of how disgusting and smelly you would be.
To be evil, malicious, harmful and a liar means that you are flawed (mad). Would a perfect entity (God) make anything that could become so? And even if he did, would he not remove it instantly if it became so?
Putting aside the naïve, puerile fairy story of Adam and Eve and the garden of Eden. And ignoring the free will nonsense that religious people use to excuse the badness/ugliness of man consider your position. A person that lies, cheats or is malicious, amoral HAS NO FREE WILL. A mad flawed person does not have free will or intelligence (understanding). He/she might be clever (most successful criminals are) but does not have free will. Consider the Islamic religion. If you are a fundamentalist Muslim, you kneel down facing an irrelevant point and pray/worship every day. Think how stupid, puerile and mad this is. Do the people who do that have intelligence or free will? There is no logic in the argument of free will. Does the lion, tiger, leopard, eagle, crocodile, and shark, have free will when it stalks, kills and devours its prey? Does the suicide bomber, the person/soldier killing, raping, torturing, the embezzler, all the ones exploiting others, the thugs and uncaring criminals have free will? No, they do not. They do not have intelligence or free will. According to the so-called Holy writing who is responsible? Where does the buck stop? If you are religious, the answer is God. He is supposable both all-powerful and perfect in righteousness. How and why does this supposable perfect entity for a microsecond allow all the evil and badness?
Now you might give the perfect stupid, worthless and puerile reply…God moves in mysterious ways his wonders to perform. If you do, you are both mad and unintelligent and what is more YOU have

Ashley Ann said...

This has nearly nothing to do with the rest of the comments, and I'm not sure if it has been mentioned before, but didn't Satan kill Job's first wife as well when he killed the children with the windstorm?

I'm not sure, but I know someone killed her, and I didn't see the death listed as one of God's either. I don't have a Bible handy for reference- could someone please enlihten me?

tegf4 said...

From my point of view God did not Kill nobody, Sin did. God’s rule is, you sin you die. That is that, you can like it or die. That is how I feel. I am a sinner, so by God’s rule I am a dead man walking. So who killed me? I did. If you really think about, fools, people killed them selves by breaking God’s rules. Think about this; God killed every one that every lived Why because of their SIN!. That was the curse by God. Genesis 3:19. In the sweat of thy face shalt thou eat bread, till thou return unto the ground; for out of it wast thou taken: for dust thou art, and unto dust shalt thou return. So get back to the bible and read before you make commits.

snookums2902 said...

Those killing counts don't include all the helpless animals that God slaughtered in his acts of "righteousness". Did they too deserve to die as the way "sinners" do? I would rather worship the devil than pray to a god that creates human beings with imperfections, then condemns and destroys them for being human. I am not a satanist per-say but if I had to pick and choose, I'd rather rather burn in hell, than float around with all the fluffy bunnies in heaven. I thought the true path to god was supposed to be difficult and one one that a person should attain through great trials and tests. Why make an instruction manual a.k.a. The Bible, a.k.a The
Complete Idiots Guide To Ass-Kissing A Self-Righteous Deity.

I think that it is folly to believe in either God or Satan, or pure evolution for that matter. Ultimately, everything that exists is made of pure energy. Always changing, always creating, and even "death" is merely the transformation of energy. People and things die because it is natural to do so. My "God" is the natural cosmic energy that pervades the entire universe and beyond. This energy has always been and always will be. It can neither be created or destroyed, but it can change it's form. God did not "create" us, we are merely a product of cosmic energy. It is also natural for life to preserve itself and procreate. Animals kill to survive, and so have people. If God is omnipotent, and can not die, then His act of killing is not a survival instinct, but rather one of malice and evil. A rather human-like trait, I might add. Creatures evolved because the process of change was natural. Energy in motion. I find it interesting how it takes great philosophers and religionists, and "enlightened" ones to figure out the true meaning of god. People are always searching for some great answer to life's riddles. In all reality, it is not the mind that will achieve for us enlightenment, but rather the heart. The answer is so simple that a child or even an animal can comprehend it. Live, love, let live, and do what it takes to survive. God won't save you. Just look at all the countless people He's "saved" in the past. Needless to say, He doesn't have a very good track record. It's just unnatural to kill with such malice and lack of good reason. You just don't go around killing you're customers, or you'll end up out of business. If they don't like what you're selling, then maybe what you're selling is not so great. Goes to show, the concept of god is just a product of man's warped, fear-ridden intellect. Created out of fear, and dispersed into humanity with fear. God is not so great.

runewolf said...

Just a thought... Going back To the ye old days when God first created Adam and Eve and the garden of Eden. I find it interesting that God would permit this evil tree of sin to dwell in a place in which he put his "beloved" creations. Adam and Eve didn't know what evil was in the first place, how would they know it was such a bad thing? It's like putting a big, juicy steak bone in front of a hungry dog expecting it not to try and eat it. This all without teaching it any sort of discipline in the first place. Then when the dog decides to grab the bone, beating it to death and condemning the rest of it's species to eternal damnation. What the hell kind of "forgiving" god is that!!
And so Adam and Eve, with the educated mentality of over-grown 5-year olds, decided to eat from the tree. Big deal! Dumb people to dumb things. With God's great parental wisdom, he decided to punish his children by condemning them to death, and life-long, if not, eternal suffering. That's nice.
To get to my point, you can see that God did not kill a finite number of people. You cannot place a number on it. God sentenced every living creature to death. Satan was just giving us the "heads-up". Watch out, this bastard is really ****ing evil and he'll destroy you for no good reason. Walk with Lucifer, the light bearer, for only he can shed some light on God's dark pitiless wrath.

daphnetruman said...

You guys are pathetic.......really. After all, we will all be killed eventually either by someone or something. In looking at "the big picture" all these millions of slaughtered people provide something really really important for the masses, ENTERTAINMENT DAMMIT! Think of all the great art, poetry, stories, books and films that that would not have existed were not The Heavenly Father and his faithful so highly skilled in the wholesale destruction and obliteration of "The wicked"? Believe me people, when all is said and done, you guys will thank our merry band of trained killers for keeping things so interesting. After all "A day without blood is like a day without sunshine"! You guys really shouldn’t hate us just because we are so good at what we do! We don’t hate you guys for wearing your funny little robes and dancing with trees, or for shaving your heads and growing goatee beards and drinking goat pee and killing cats and all the other funny little things you do. We do what we do to you out of our LOVE for you, really. It’s just like General Electric (maker of the GE minicannon, one of our favorite magic weapons, always says, "We bring good things to living, we bring good things to life! So smile people and be proud! We will keep on killing, and we will keep on winning, until the day the Beast sets off the Apocalypse and we stomp the guts out of the whole friggin planet! But don’t worry, we got a whole new one just chompin at the bit to get a little trigger time in! So keep payin those taxes people, so the government can keep providing us with better more powerful magic weapons to keep this party rockin around the clock. Because if Dick Clark's hair can live forever, then with a little faith, so can you!

Who has killed more, Satan or God... Much time reflected on the sensitive topic of your very interesting spasbo. Is what to think ...

If interested, can visit the blog with useful information on Homeo Insurance Quotes.

Mike said...

God didn't kill a single person. Satan has been killing ALL of us. You see he is the reason why death exists in the first place. God only wants to give us LIFE, an everlasting one to boot. You bring judgement on yourself by turning away from the only the life giver and turning to the usurper, death bringer.

live4love said...

I personally am a Christian and I guess I would ask how many has God saved with sending his Son? Or how many will be saved through Jesus Christ? Without God we wouldn't have life.

tony vanelli said...

interesting post.

i'm curious where the count would be if the bible were treated in a more original format; i.e., where satan was not the combined effort of three seperate characters of the bible.

almost all modern editions of the bible give satan a treatment as a single entity, and our modern understanding of 'beelzebub' 'satan' 'devil' are all part and parcel to the problem, these were not originally synonymous terms.

biblical treatment of satan, the correct treatment, is that he is an influencer, but unable to create or destroy anything on earth himself.

so, in terms of direct acts, by the bible the 10 should at least bear an asterisk ;)

mountain king said...

What about: "Satan rose up against Israel and incited David to take a census of Israel"
1 Chronicles 21:1

Tony said...

Interesting post. I assume it to be a "case against God" is it not?

This theory is of course taking a number of assumptions.
1) You classify God and Satan as rival individuals whereas in truth there is one God with two divisions (good and evil a.k.a Jesus and Satan). These two divisions compliment each other and construct the full entity of God.
2) Satan has power to kill outside of God's allowance. If this were true then Satan's count would be much larger (I saw Hitler and a number of evil men mentioned).

All in all I suppose this post proves that God has sole ownership over life and even death.

I think George Bush has killed more people than God or Satan.

I Think You all People forgot your Creator, GOD!!!!!!!!!
He Has the mighty power of all Heaven and Earth.
And one more thing if we wont die there will be no place on earth for the next generations.
Of course there will be very good place for u in the heaven
So Please Think Before You Write about him.

American Moose said...

Yes, he is worth worshiping. God killed those people because the devil was absolutly controlling him. Plus that is like looking at someone who did something bad and expecting him/her to have no concequences. PLUS God created the world and he is trying to keep it in at least some order compared to where it would be without him. It's his. Give your life to God and he will help you, and you reject him and expect to have no concequences. Now after Jesus was born and died and rose again God is a God of Love and Peace and now Jesus took your punishment, but there is only one thing that he can't take care of for you. Eternal Life. He won't be able to do a thing until you let him be in your life. SO DO IT!!!!!!!!

Vences said...

Actually you got the count wrong because God never killed anyone. In Genesis, it tells us that Adam and Eve lived in a perfect paradise, until the devil deceived Eve by getting her to eat from the forbidden tree of life. This deception is what cursed humanity to death for God had told Adam that if he ever ate from the tree he would die. It is the devil deception that has cursed us to death unless you accept Christ as your savior.

cjbrake said...

Adam sinned against god, after god told him that he would die if he did.... The bible says "for the wages of sin is death, but the gift of god is eternal life through Jesus Christ Our Lord.
Romans 6:23
You see we have fallen short of the glory of god

Wildy said...

I can't believe that I'm defending literalists here, but technically you could increase the estimate to compensate for the servants that died in that house as well, considering the wealth that Job had.

(>o.O)> said...

But guys, you have to remember that many of the people that God supposedly killed are really really bad people. Why are they bad people? because of sin which was caused by Satan when he tempted Eve. So this means that Satan caused all of their deaths through sin thus showing that Satan has killed them all, not God.

... Or something like that.
