    A question came up today at lunch and I'll pass it on since I didn't know the answer. The question was; "is there a spirit of the devil as there is a spirit of God?" I know the scripture refers to the spirit of the anti Christ.

    One is referring to the very presence of God. The other is referring more so to a disposition, an attitude, a propensity to disobey God. Satan is a spiritual being however, he is not omnipresent, I think the idea is that the same sin that is at work in Satan is also at work in the world.
