That is like saying "Okay, lets give ISIS the United States and maybe they will be good". No, Satan would just be even more powerful, and it is also against the nature of God to be Evil. God is the only example of right and wrong, because he is the perfect being.

thats the thing, if satan represents god, then satan must represent right and wrong to fx a christian

Yes, but the title of the debate is: "if satan and god switched power, would satan still be the evil one?" We are not saying that satan has become god, rather that he has obtained the power of God. If satan became god, then he could not be satan, rather God would become a weaker "god". It is against God's nature to be evil like I said earlier, so he could not be satan. Satan may acquire Gods power, but God would keep his power that He already has and not acquire the power that satan has.

it is moral for god to do what satan does

No. God is unlimited by the power to be Holy and True. For instance, He cannot be a liar or a thief. Satan however has already been a liar and a thief so he cannot do Holy works. And like I said just because Satan obtains the "power of God" he does not become God.

so god is unlimited by power, therfore if god switches powers with satan, satan is the good one

When He speaks it is the truth, because He is God. He can say whatever He wants (as long as it is not against his nature: sin) and it will be the truth.

if god speaks it it isnt the truth?

In a sense yes, but also in the same sense no. He cannot do anything that contradicts his nature as a perfect and Holy being, because he would not be considered God at that point.

No not at all God has the most power but he's obviously not abusing us. Also I don't get your point that Satan would have to take on the role of God. If him and God agreed to switch power God would be weak and would have no way of ensuring the devil became good. The devil could just take him out and evilly rule the earth.

so its not about who has the most power that makes the moral?
