So is GOD Stronger than the DEVIL ?

7th Heaven has been going for 10 friggin seasons ! I can't think of a show with Demon content which has gone more than 5 seasons (Angel etc)

Does this prove God is more powerful than the Devil cos the Devil keeps getting cancelled ?

That's a really weird basis for your question.

The real question is how does God, the Devil & Bob fit into all this?

The created can NEVER be stronger than the Creator!

Well, I'm pretty sure that the Devil Created 7th Heaven in the first place.

"Angel" was about how people can work together to defeat evil; "7th Heaven" is, itself, evil. So I would say your entire rationale is off.

Well staying with TV reality clearly the Cylons are stronger than their creators in Battlestar Galactica.

But in the real world this statement is just ridiculous. How many children end up stronger than their parents.

Or alternatively would you really suggest that having built a steam roller I'd be safe standing in front of it because it couldn't be stronger than me??

It's funny that you would say you can't think of a show with demons that lasted more than 5 seasons and use Angel as your example. Why is that funny? Because it's a spinoff of a series (with demons) that lasted 7 seasons, Buffy The Vampire Slayer.

The show Charmed has lasted well beyond 5 years as well. Also, Buffy & Angel are about the characters and good vs evil, not about the devil. The X-Files had some demonic things and lasted 9 seasons. Xena had a run-in with Lucifer himself and it lasted 6 seasons.

Shows like Buffy & Angel also cost more to make than 7th Heaven.

I am only talking about the real world and in the real world, God, who created everything that is seen, is Infinite and anything he created finite.

The Book Of Daniel and Nothing Sacred hardly made a dent; Brimstone was around for longer than them.
