I know that this is a weird topic, but I just wanted to see what's your opinion on this topic. For those who don't know, it's when you make some kind of crazy prayer thing and you basically give your life up to the devil. In this little contract that you make in the prayer, the devil allows you to become rich and famous, and he'll keep you alive until it's your time to die. Also, in exchange for all that, when you die, you'll have to go stright to hell.

The first thing that comes to my mind is if this even true?

Also, there's a couple of rappers who have done this and they put some messages in there songs to just thank the devil for their success. For example, I'm not sure if you guys have heard of that group named Three 6 Mafia, which the name is already a reference to the devil, and they've won a Grammy a while back, they have this one song, "Stay Fly", and during the chorus, you here somebody saying in the background, "Lucifer! Is my King!" It's not creepy sounding at all, but it's just creepy in general.

Well, I just felt like posting this because I wanted to know your thoughts on this topic.

Yeah, that's what I think the right way to do it is, but I guess that selling your soul brings more success to you and for rappers being able to stay alive is a really good thing I guess. Also, I'll never sell my soul ever! I'll just stick to the good Ol' proper way in order to me successful.

Well first off, I barely understood your post, so I suggest writng a lot better, and what do you mean by put it on? That makes no sense! Giving your soul up is not some kind of item that you wear.

The Rolling Stones openly admit that they sold their souls to the devil.  Which is really idiotic, since if you believe in the devil, you... kindof have to believe in God as well.

Haha, yeah that's true. Also, I haven't actually got to talk about if you guys think it's actually real or just complete coincidence? I'm just wondering about this because the people who do sell their souls, do become really rich and famous, so it just makes me think that it's real, but even if it is real, I still won't do it because it's not worth worshipping the devil and going to hell.

Sting, Theres a problem wif what you said. if you believe in the devil you do have to believe in god, but, for some strange reason you hate god. o.O Then, its perfectly coordinated with your weird beliefs.

I don't think its real, the only way to really do that is to be the worst person possible. Since your doing all the devli wants and going to hell. [Depending on your religious beliefs as a murderer and whatnot].

Yeah, You get 100 years or less of prosperity and then what? Burn on a log. xP

I don't believe the devil exists. The whole concept doesn't even coordinate with Christian beliefs. At least Jews have it half way right.

Actually, the devil is mentioned all over the Bible; maybe it does not coordinate with certain 'Christian' beliefs, but the Bible certainly states he is real.  '... like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour'.  Yeah, I do not believe that is figurative.
