Hi, guys —

  • Since God can decide when someone dies, can satan also choose when someone dies?
  • Does satan have the power to end a person's life?


  { Since God can decide when someone dies, can satan also choose when someone dies? }

Paul replied:

Dear Carmen,

Only God has power over life and death. The devil has the power of a fallen angel without grace, a created, limited being who exercises his natural power only according to what God allows.

This usually comes in the form of temptations, obsessions, or possessions; but he has no power over the human will. We have the power to reject Satan and live within the grace and providence of God.
