The Bible: Is God responsible for the existence of Satan?

Posted by: briantheliberal

If yes, God created evil, and is responsible for the existence of evil. If no, then god is not omnipotent, and not worthy of being called "God"

  • Yes. God created Satan.

  • No. Satan created himself, or some other force did.

  • God created everything. Satan is part of everything. Therefore God created Satan. QED.

  • If God exists, and If Satan exists, then yes, God would have created Satan. Not only did he deform him and banish him to hell, but he created all things in the universe. Of course none of this is true. God would have to exist for this to be true.

  • Who's the all-powerful one again? God? That seems about right.

  • He did but he will destroy him for trying to over throne him but he failed That's how sin is here Satan but God sent his own son to die for us to go to Heaven he invites you to Heaven=Home Jesus will come again soon to save his followers and at the end destroy Satan and we will he a new world with no sin,pain,sickness,death,fear and hungry nor thirsty God will destroy Satan very soon

  • God created Satan as a beautiful angel, then Satan made the personal decision to turn away from the almighty loving father. He believed that he could be God himself. He couldn't, and God punished him for it. God gave us free will, and its up to us to use it wisely. Satan was the first of all creation to abuse this gift.

  • Adam and Eve created Satan, Satan is sin, and sin was created by Adam and Eve when they ate the forbidden fruit.

Apparently he was originally an angel, who turned evil and tried to "overthrow" god. Surely, god would have known of this and prevented it from happening. Instead, he banished Satan, and gave him his own domain of evilness and torture.

The real story in the Talmud is quite a bit more exciting. Lucifer's rebellion actually wrecked heaven and the war was tangible meaning that it wasn't a one-sided God v. Whatever but instead a bunch of angels thwacking at one another. Ironically this shows that God likely can be defeated seeing as Lucifer, jealous of humanity, successfully rebelled not once but twice.

@briantheliberal God created lucifer, and lucifer decided that he wanted the same amount of power as God, so he conspired against him. He, along with about a third of the angels fought against God, but lost, and were thrown out of heaven down to Earth. Then Satan created his domain of hell, and lures there right now. God gives everyone free will, and does not stop them from doing what they would like. It is up to them to do the right thing. He knew what was going to happen to lucifer, but he made no point to stop it (this is not because he didn't know, but he was giving him the chance to decide his fate-- much like Jesus).

"Not only did he deform him and banish him to hell..." Making sh*t up again?
