  • Satan was a fallen angel that challenged the christian god. He was cast out of heaven and I don't recall if satan created hell, or god created hell for his own domain to rule over. So the story goes.
  • Well, now, the answer to this depends upon the paradigm from which you approach the question. This is the Christianity section, so I will start with the Christian view. In the Christian view, Satan was created by Yahweh along with the other angels. Satan was an archangel, like Michael and Gabriel, and was named Lucifer. Satan rebelled against Yahweh in an attempt to set Himself up as Supreme Deity. His attempt failed, and He and his followers, also angels but known thereafter as demons, were cast from Heaven to Earth to await judgment. This is the general Christian perspective, although it may vary somewhat. For Christians who are not Biblical literalists, Satan is generally seen as an allegory. The word "satan" means "adversary" or "to oppose". This character is used as an allegory for all that which opposes Yahweh. Thus, He was created by the authors of the Bible to illustrate a point. Most secular humanists/Atheists/non-Abrahamic groups would agree with this view. This is, in fact, the view of the Church of Satan (more or less). In the Jewish view, Satan was created by Yahweh along with everything else. Satan still works for Yahweh in His job in tempting humans. There are some who believe that Satan has always been. Some of these believe Satan is really the Supreme Creator. Yahweh overthrew Satan and the Bible is propoganda written by the victor. (If I believed any of the Bible to be true, I would subscribe to this view.)
  • His mothers womb.
  • satan at one time enjoyed life in heaven as one of God's spirit creatures. God being perfect, created him perfect. (deuteronomy 32:4) he was created to fulfill the role of one of God's cherubs. he was not an archangel. there is only one archangel (meaning chief angel) satan at one time was an appointed cherub who was assigned to overseer matters here on earth. (ezequiel 28:13-17) unfortunatly he began to covet what did not belong to him. he began desiring for himself the worship that only belongs to the creator of the universe, material or otherwise. thus he sinned and began to form his own organization made up of other spirit creatures that joined him in the rebellion, as well as humans that have opposed Jehovah God's soveirnty.

  • The ideas of Lucifer being Satan and Satan being all evil and so on, are largely later inventions. The very early Jews saw Satan as simply carrying out God's wishes, as those who have actually read the Bible carefully will know. The God of the Old Testament makes it very clear that he is as responsible for evil as good. The convenient ignoring of this by fundamentalists is amusing but easily disproved. For example: Isaiah 45:6-7: "...I am the LORD and there is none else. I form the light and create darkness. I make peace and create evil. I the LORD do all these things." "...[God] destroys both the blameless and the wicked. When a scourge brings sudden death, he mocks the despair of the innocent." Lamentations 3:37-38: "Who has commanded and it came to pass, unless the Lord has ordained it? Is it not from the mouth of the Most High that good and evil come?" So if you want to know the source of ultimate evil according to the Bible, the technically correct answer is in fact God. This will give you a more accurate history of the development of the present day idea of Satan: http://www.religioustolerance.org/chr_sat2.htm
  • Here is a link to a very good article about the origin of Satan the devil. It should answer many of your questions. Please note the scriptural references that you can find and read from your own Bible at home. http://www.watchtower.org/e/rq/index.htm?article=article_04.htm
  • He was a creation of God, and one of the inner sanctum, by inference from Scripture, but he rebelled against God, wanting the dethrone his creator, and was cast out of heaven. He became the antagonist, the tempter, the accuser of humans, reminding God of their sins and the necessity to punish them. His reasoning seems to be, "if I go down, I take as many as I can with me".
  • All of God’s works are perfect; he is not the author of unrighteousness; so he did not create anyone wicked. (Deut. 32:4; Ps. 5:4) The one who became Satan was originally a perfect spirit son of God. When saying that the Devil “did not stand fast in the truth,” Jesus indicated that at one time that one was “in the truth.” (John 8:44) But, as is true of all of God’s intelligent creatures, this spirit son was endowed with free will. He abused his freedom of choice, allowed feelings of self-importance to develop in his heart, began to crave worship that belonged only to God, and so enticed Adam and Eve to listen to him rather than obey God. Thus by his course of action he made himself Satan, which means “adversary.”—Jas. 1:14, 15;
  • The Story of Satan is a mythorical account of when the sun rises and when the sun sets, the story of satan in the bible is a varient of the story of ra in ancient egypt. First there was Lucifer, In the bible it says "Lucifer Morning Sun" that means "The Sun Bring light in the Morning" As the Sun falls out of the sky aka fallen angel, and sets it glows red in the horizon aka satan eventually the sunsets goes or hides, hell translates into hide, it is also why satan is the prince of darkness. and lucifer the prince(angle) of light.
  • As in Isaiah also in Lamentations 3 we see here there is evil or more correctly calamity for those who are wicked and reject true worship. The Bible book of Job explains this at Job 34:10"Far be it from God to do wickedness, And from the Almighty to commit iniquity"

  • People's beliefs of Satan range from the silly to the abstract: from a little red guy with horns who sits on your shoulder urging you to sin, to an expression used to describe the personification of evil. The Bible, however, gives us a clear portrayal of who Satan is, and how he affects our lives. Put simply, the Bible defines Satan as an angelic being who fell from his position in heaven due to sin and is now diametrically opposed to God, doing all in his power to thwart God's purposes for humanity. Ezekiel 28:12-14 describes Satan as having been created a cherubim, and was apparently the highest created angel. He became arrogant in his beauty and status, and decided he wanted to sit on a throne above that of God (Isaiah 14:13-14; Ezekiel 28:15; 1 Timothy 3:6). Satan’s pride led to his fall. Notice the many “I will” statements in Isaiah 14:12-15. Because of his sin, God threw Satan out of heaven. Satan became the ruler of this world that functions apart from God, and the prince of the power of the air (John 12:31; 2 Corinthians 4:4; Ephesians 2:2). He is an accuser (Revelation 12:10), a tempter (Matthew 4:3; 1 Thessalonians 3:5), and a deceiver (Genesis 3; 2 Corinthians 4:4; Revelation 20:3). His very name means “adversary” or “one who opposes.” Another name used for Satan, the devil, means “slanderer.” Even though he was cast out of heaven, he still seeks to elevate his throne above God. He counterfeits all that God does, hoping to gain the worship of the world and foment opposition to God's kingdom. Satan is the ultimate source behind every false cult and world religion. Satan will do anything and everything in his power to oppose God, and those who follow God. However, Satan’s destiny is sealed – an eternity in the lake of fire (Revelation 20:10).
  • Same place as god: the imagination of men
  • He was created by God as all things were he was supposed to be the fairest or most handsome of all the angels. He however wanted power much like Darth Vadar or Melkor but he did not have the strenght to destroy God or his angels. He and the fallen were cast here to earth to be in power of what they so wanted US and his folks or the fallen are around us every day trying to make sure we all go to hell. God However kind put a fix in the game since we had created or been fooled into orginal sin we were alll damned. Satan of course knew this so God had to amend his plans so we would all not be damned Heaven on earth by your self would be quite lonely. So he sent us Christ to provide Humanity and himself an out so as not to have EVERYONE or human be in hell that is a defeat in its self. That is to create something that you wanted to be you friend or friends and your worst enemy curse them until they are all insane. . THe Devil Will Suffer. . . . .
  • He was an angel in heaven and when he tried to take over God he got kicked out and sent to earth and 1/3 of the angels that tried to rebell went to earth too.
  • We still have free will. God gives us that gift. Lusifer was the Angel who brought forth worship in heaven and when he opened his mouth every instument came out as he led worship. He had an awesome gift to do. But like many even angels have free will and he just wanted more. That is the truth.
