Differences of the 7 major denomination about : Satan and Demons

Recommended Posts

Christian denominations generally believe that Satan is a fallen angel. Here is what they have said about their beliefs:

  • Anglican/Episcopal: The existence of the Devil is referred to in the Thirty-nine Articles of Religion, part of the "Book of Common Prayer," which defines the doctrines and practices of the Church of England. While the baptismal liturgy in the "Book of Common Worship" contains references to battling the Devil, an alternate service was approved in 2015 that eliminates this reference.
  • Assembly of God: Satan and demons are fallen angels, evil spirits (Mat. 10:1). Satan rebelled against God (Isaiah 14:12–15; Ezek. 28:12–15). Satan and his demons do everything in their power to oppose God and those who do God's will (1 Pet. 5:8; 2 Cor. 11:14–15). Though enemies of God and Christians, they are defeated enemies by the blood of Jesus Christ (1 John 4:4). Satan's destiny is the lake of fire for all eternity (Rev. 20:10).
  • Baptist: "Historic Baptists believe in the literal reality and actual personality of Satan (Job 1:6-12; 2:1–7; Matt. 4:1–11; etc.). In other words, they believe that the one referred to in the Bible as the devil or Satan is a real person, though they certainly do not perceive him as the caricatured red figure with horns, a long tail, and a pitchfork." Baptist Pillar - Doctrine
  • Lutheran: "Satan is the chief evil angel, the 'prince of demons'(Luke 11:15). Here is how our Lord Jesus Christ describes Satan: 'He was a murderer from the beginning, not holding to the truth, for there is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks his native language,for he is a liar and the father of lies' (John 8:44)." (LCMS)
  • Methodist: See the Sermon on Satan's Devices by John Wesley, founder of Methodism: Global Ministries.
  • Presbyterian: Differing beliefs are discussed in Presbyterians TodayFallen AngelsEvil.
  • Roman Catholic: Satan or the devil is a fallen angel. Satan, though powerful and evil, is limited by God's divine providence. Source: Catechism - 2nd Edition
