Fat and Blood in Leviticus 3

Leviticus 3 talks about the preparation of animal sacrifices and ends by saying, "All fat belongs to the LORD. This is a permanent rule for your future generations, wherever you live.

Justified by faith . . . translation question

Romans 5:1 in NRSV, NIV, and NEV all use the phrase, "since we are justified by faith," or we "have been justified by faith." In the CEB, though, the phrase reads, "since we have been made righteous through his faithfulness." I want to use Romans 5 in conjuction with Genesis 18 and Sarah's story, so the wording in Romans makes a huge difference, at least in my mind. Is there a good reason the CEB translates the Greek differently?

Why is Satan allowed to be Satan?

1. Why was satan cast to earth instead of any other place in the vast of the universe? Revelation 12:12. which eventually led to sin/evil into this world.

2. Why was satan given power to tempt man? thus leading many into sin and eventually causing people go to hell!!!

3. In the garden when satan tempted Adam & Eve why wasn't he cursed directly as it was the case with man? Afterall God knew satan used the snake as a disguise!
