Answer 1:

Some people think there is, some people think there isn't.

Nobody knows for sure because there's no proof.

Answer 2:

Whilst there is no physical proof for the existence of the

devil, Bible-believing Christians believe in the reality of both

the devil and demons.

Answer 3:

If there is a Jesus Christ, then there is a Satan... because

Jesus talk (s; ed) with him:

"'GET OUT OF HERE, SATAN... 'For the

Scriptures say, ''You must worship the LORD your God; serve only

Him.'" (Matt.4:10 NLT New Living

Translation)

And Jesus tells us:

"...'I SAW SATAN falling from heaven

as a flash of lightning!'" (Luke 10:18 NLT)

So, the trick to "knowing" if there is a Devil, is to

"believe" what Jesus Christ SAYS... because according to

Him, the Words that His Father gave to Him to speak to us is:

THE TRUTH! [John 17:17]

But Truth is funny that way -- not everyone believes it. So, if

people don't believe the Truth... then they believe in lies, which

is the Devil's realm; deception [Rev.12:9]:

"...you are the children of your father the Devil, and you love

to do the evil things he does. He was a murderer from the beginning

and has always HATED THE TRUTH.

THERE IS NO TRUTH IN HIM. When he LIES, it is

consistent with his character; for HE IS A LIAR and THE

FATHER OF LIES." (John 8:44 NLT)

So, to acknowledge that there is a Devil, is also to acknowledge

Jesus Christ. And "believing" in both of them doesn't mean a whole

lot, either, unless you're able to define in your heart what it is

that you're believing about them. For instance, if Jesus SAW

Satan... then Satan has seen Jesus, too: and HE

BELIEVES IN JESUS!

"Do you still think it's enough just to BELIEVE there is one

God? Well, even the DEMONS BELIEVE THIS,

and THEY TREMBLE IN TERROR! (James 2:19

NLT)

So, you see, both Jesus and the Devil "believe" in each other...

in this case; that each one exists. But then, of course, if the

modern re-writers of history have their way... then Jesus was; 1)

genuinely mistaken about everything or a pathological liar... or;

2) "He never existed." In which case, there is neither a Devil nor

a Christ.
