Satan is NOT as bad as you thought! (1 Cor 5 and 1Tim 1:18-20)


Do you have vile sinners among you and you want to save their spirit? Very simple solution: Deliver them to Satan! 

Job was a righteous man who feared God, miseries befell in his life and he complained a lot, but he remained righteous. (the Book of Job) Another bunch people on whom plagues befell, they remained evil and blasphemed God. (Rev 16:8-11) Therefore, evils that befall a sinful man won't turn him to God, neither will they turn a righteous man away from God.

Now, please read 1 Cor 5:5: 
1Co 5:5 To deliver such an one unto Satan for the destruction of the flesh, that the spirit may be saved in the day of the Lord Jesus.
Scholars say that if the man is delivered to Satan, he will face physical ailments and turn to God and be saved. But, unfortunately, the scriptures say that those who are evil will remain evil no matter what physical ailments happen to them and righteous remain righteous no matter what happens to them. 1Cor 5:5 is very clear, deliver a fornicator (see 1 Cor 5:1) to Satan and his spirit will be saved in the day of the Lord. If there are sinful people in your congregation, community or even family, hand them over to Satan so that their spirits will be saved in the Day of the LORD.
  • If this true, there is no need to preach the gospel - just hand over all the sinners to Satan so that their Spirits will be saved.
  • If this is true, Satan is not a bad character at all - after all "he" is to save even vile sinners.
  • If this is true, Jesus Christ and His sacrifice were redundant, God could have provided for handing over all the sinners to Satan, so that ALL could be saved.
Do you have blasphemers among you whom you want to correct? Easy way out: Deliver them to Satan and they will learn not to blaspheme!

1Ti 1:20 Of whom is Hymenaeus and Alexander; whom I have delivered unto Satan, that they may learn not to blaspheme.
If this verse is to be understood literally, Satan is running some sort of an institution where blasphemers are taught not to blaspheme! If this be true, why did Jesus said Satan / Devil is a liar and a father of lies? Do you really think that someone who teaches people not to blaspheme is evil? 

How to deliver someone to Satan?

There is no need to learn any new prayers or mantras; no need to place hand on the sinful man so that you can deliver him to Satan. I will give you the address of Satan, go and deliver the sinners among you to Satan! Bonus, it is 100% Biblical:  
Rev 2:12 And to the angel of the church in PERGAMOS write;
Rev 2:13 I know thy works, and where thou dwellest, even
WHERE SATAN'S SEAT IS: and thou holdest fast my name, and hast not denied my faith, even in those days wherein Antipas was my faithful martyr, who was slain among you, WHERE SATAN DWELLETH

The dwelling place of Satan is in PERGAMOS, which is Bergama, Izmir Province, Turkey.

What does "delivering to Satan" really mean?

Most of the sensible scholars agree that delivering to Satan means excommunicating the sinner. Read 1Cor 1:1 which says that the kind of fornication that is happening in the Church of Corinth is unheard EVEN AMONG GENTILES - implying that the man who was involved in it was a Jewish convert to Christian faith.

Though this man is into fornication, the church at Corinth (Achaia) was shamelessly protecting him. (Verses 2, 3). Paul tells them to deliver him to Satan while they come together in the name of Christ - as a congregation. In other words: SHIELD HIM NO MORE, EXCOMMUNICATE HIM. 

Once excommunicated, he will have to go back to his own Jewish people, who will stone him to death for lying with his fathers wife. (Lev 18:8). He has received the punishment for his sin, which is death and his spirit would be saved in the day of the Lord.

In the modern day circumstances, if there are people who break civil laws, hand them over to law enforcement agencies.

Even in the case of blasphemers (1Tim 1:18-20), they were to be excommunicated, so that they would be stoned to death by Jews, if such blasphemers were of Jewish origin (Lev 24:16).

Addendum: The Sinner of 1 Cor 5 was not delivered to Satan.

The sinner mentioned in 1Cor 5 was not handed over to Satan, he was disfellowshipped and then was accepted back into the congregation. (Read from the very beginning of 2Co 2)
2Co 2:5 Now if anyone has caused pain, he has caused it not to me, but in some measure - not to put it too severely - to all of you.
2Co 2:6 For such a one, this punishment by the majority is enough,
(See 1 Cor 5:4)
2Co 2:7 so you should rather turn to forgive and comfort him, or he may be overwhelmed by excessive sorrow.

2Co 2:8 So I beg you to reaffirm your love for him.

In Christ,
