Return to the ghost story Don't Taunt Satan

I deeply regret that you were raped and what I am going to say does not mean that I am blaming you for it. However, I see a trend here in your thinking that may lead to other situations of risk perhaps to occur again. I don't want that.

On the religious side of it, which your post emphasizes, you went against the bible when you "taunted Satan". Here are the applicable verses:
2Pe 2:10 But chiefly them that walk after the flesh in the lust of uncleanness, and despise government. Presumptuous [are they], selfwilled, they are not afraid to speak evil of dignities.
Jud 1:8 Likewise also these [filthy] dreamers defile the flesh, despise dominion, and speak evil of dignities.

Also you state that you were "saved" and a Christian, therefore you were under the jurisdiction of the bible god. Another deity can't punish you because you are not under their authority. If anything was to bring you ill as a consequence it would have been from your own deity who does promise harm to his followers if they disobey him and go against his word.
Your "taunting" also would be considered a sin of pride. And the bible says that pride goeth before destruction and a haughty spirit before a fall.

Now on to your personal responsibility, which I believe from what you wrote was absent. It is unwise to trust a deity to protect you if you fail to develop wisdom and self responsibility for your actions and decisions.

It may seem like a nice gesture to be there for a friend in need. That is a good thing. However you do not throw caution to the wind and put yourself at risk, whether you are religious or non-religious.

I noticed that you left out the details of what occured "before the end of the night". You said you "met him". If you went to his home, that is bad judgement on your part. I will tell you why.

You said in your story that he was "begging to talk to you" and that he "needed a friend", plus that his wife left him. This was a very shattering situation for him and many men take it as an attack on their manhood.

Someone in this state may be in a state of desperation and even anger at the wife which could be projected by him on to you. It would have been wiser to meet him in a public place if he was in such a state, which is what he was at that time so you believed. Women need to keep in mind that some men cannot be trusted and to protect themselves however they can and not to place themselves into risk situations.

I am not going to assume by your leaving out details of what went on at his home, that it involved making out. If it did, that was certainly an inappropriate time since he was still married. Definitely not Christian behavior, nor behavior that is wise for any woman. Emotionally charged situations can get out of hand.

You did say that later you found out that the wife was only "out of town", but unless you know greater detail, he may have actually beleived at the time she had left him. If not, you were dealing with an unscrupulous man with bad intentions or one who cannot control himself, or with an abusive attitude toward women. You should have asked yourself, why did this wife leave him? There are two sides to every story. Again you take steps to protect yourself.

My intention is not to place blame on you. The blame is on him. However, you had an opportunity to think the situation through and not only minmize your risks but act with propriety.

What disturbs me most is that you blame deity and other forces for how the evening ended. To abdicate your own responsibility for your actions and choices is unhealthy for a Christian or unbeliever. It places you at risk. I would suggest that you rethink this issue, take more responsibilty for your choices and educate yourself on ways that women can protect themselves from violence.

Tip:The Devil himself can be seen in different forms, like a giant with horns an sulphuric gas around him, like a bull body, and he can appear as animals too.

Hope He does not visit you often.

Hi, I think you did the right thing by helping out an old friend to make him feel better because there was nothing wrong in that. But I think that is terrible that a person can do what you ex did to you to another person. Just goes to show that anything related to the devil or god is nothing to play around with.

My dear, sometimes bad things happen to good people, and your rape is a prime example of this.

Yes, I believe Satan was involved, but not perhaps the way you feel he was. I believe that Satan incites people to do evil things like rape, hurt, and kill others.

I do hope you reported the crime (that's what it was--a crime), and you are not to blame for what occurred. I know what I'm talking about, because I'm a survivor of rape myself--and the last thing you need to do is give that sorry creature any more power over you than he's had already (I'm talking about your rapist, not Satan).

It's ironic that you went to see this man because he asked for help. It also sounds as if he'd planned to do something of a negative nature--after all, rape is a crime of violence, not a crime of passion.

Don't blame yourself. If you haven't reported it, do so, because if he did this to you, chances are that he'll do it to another woman. Even if he isn't convicted, at least it'll be on file.

Lastly, find a support group for survivors of sexual assault. It'll do you a world of good, and you will simultaneously be helped and strengthened by hearing what has happened to others as you, in turn, help and strengthen them.

God bless you and angels watch over you.

Like ominousnyxx, I understand that you're probably mad at yourself for letting that rape happen, but it's really not your fault and I REALLY want to know what you did about it. In other words, you need to report it to the police and make sure his fiance knows or something, because that is not ok. Never think that just because it happened, it was your fault for being that stupid. It's not. Please do something if you haven't already and I hope you have. Other than that, I think your story is really interesting. I can relate to the basement thing, but it's only in rarely-used basements for me. As of now, I hope you're living in a bit more peace.

First of all, I am so sorry you experienced so a harsh trauma. The rape and deception, you DID NOT ask for, even with what you say about taunting satan (by the way I agree, he is the great deceiver and he should not be taunted) I do think however that the individual who perpetrated this violent act is the one who should be on his hands and knees praying! What a rotten, evil bag of bones!

Thank you for sharing your story. You have my prayers for a healing touch for your heart and soul!

God Bless!

No, the rape is definitely not your fault. I don't know why you're blaming yourself for it happening. If you start thinking like this, you will start to believe every little thing that happens to you every day, every tiny thing, is part of the battle of good and evil and that is not a good way to think. You will become a "victim" of what you think is happening to you. We all have freewill. You have freewill to do whatever good you can do in the world, and not be distracted by these kind of black and white thoughts. I'm sorry if this sounds to forceful, I'd just hate to think that you were blaming yourself (for saying something in your own head or to yourself) for causing you to be raped. So, so wrong. It is not your fault.

girl, the rape is not your fault! You didn't taunt the devil. That guy did it of his own free will whether he was influenced or not. Do not blame yourself for something someone else did to you! When I was younger I had an encounter with a devil in my dreams. He offered me everything to follow him and I refused even after he tried to scare me. Since then I have never had those dreams and I am not afraid of satan. "If God be for us, who can be against us?" Psalm 91 is always good, too. Good luck

Did you report the rape to the police?
I mean... You know, I'm sorry this happened and this is a good lesson to learn for those people out there who think they're invincible.

Just hope you're alright now and hope that Christ will always be with you.

To Axl; You're a telepath? That's a really special gift and not something to be toyed with. Everyone is a telepath, but a weak one. I know what my friend and others are thinking but that's due my knowledge on Psychology and human behaviour/movement, not because of supernatural abilities. Lol.

Anyways, you do realise that telepaths can cause telepathic links with others (if you're experienced enough) but the worse thing is, Satan can connect with you via a telepathic link. So you better be careful.

A friend of mine taunted Satan once while I was there.

He moved house the next week and the last I heard he was in prison for asault. Poor guy, I believe it was Satan imparing his judgement because he was a good kid. 😢

I've always thought of satan as more of an archtype or symbol for the evil inherent within us, but I have met a lot of people who have had experiences like yours and I'm not quite sure what I believe anymore. I don't see any reason why the amount of fear and energy christians feed into satan couldn't create a thought-form. Interestingly enough, all of the people I've met with similar experiences believed very deeply in both god and the devil. Perhaps there are opportunistic spirit beings among us who take the shape of whatever it is we truly fear. Thank you for sharing your story- I hope you are happy and safe in your current circumstances.

Its good you believe in a God, I dont, because when I needed him he wasn't there. Sorry about what happened to you. I taunt the devil all the time, and being born with the ability to tell what people are thinking I can't get tricked, I can get scared and frieghtend but not tricked.
