Who is Satan?

Two points that were made in the videos really stood out to me. The first point being that unlike popular belief, Satan is not some collaborative of malignant thought that makes up and represents all the evil in this world. He is very much an individual with a personality, heart and will. The second point was that the Book of Genesis and the Book of Revelation are the two most critized books in the Bible. The reason for this is because Satan wants to hide from the world the fact that he even exists in the first place. So many people are worshipping him without even knowing it and he wants to keep this ruse going as long as possible until his inevitable ousting by the Most High and Creator God. Jesus was very clear when he characterized Satan as the God of this world. While the Most High is God of all creation. Satan is the God of this world. No question.

(BELOW)This is what Satanist believe. For educational purposes only. You see how they are fixated on making Satan appear to be the victim in the battle between him and the Most High. We again get into talk about Lucifer versus Satan and the distinctions between the two. But I’ve become more and more convinced that the Latin(not Hebrew) name of Lucifer was something that was added into scripture in more recent times by the deceptive Papalcy.


Biblegod’s finitude, Biblical henotheism, and the Devil:
Satan, “ha-satan,” Lucifer, and the Nephilim

Should the topic of Satan happen to come up in your discussions with Christians, here are some references that may come in handy.

  1. The “fall of Lucifer” myth
  2. New Testament “Satan” vs. Old Testament “ha-satan”
  3. The Book of Enoch
  4. Satan in the New Testament and Christianity
  5. Absurdity of “cosmic Good” and “cosmic Evil”
  6. Favorable reinterpretations of Satan
  7. The Nephilim
  8. Miscellaneous
  1. The “fall of Lucifer” mythFirst, here are some articles about the traditional Christian “Lucifer” myth and its lack of foundation in the Bible:
  2. New Testament “Satan” vs. Old Testament “ha-satan”Next, some articles about the difference between “Satan” of the New Testament and “ha-satan” of the Old Testament, especially the Book of Job:But here are some articles dealing with apocryphal and rabbinic traditions contemporary to Jesus. Apparently, at that time, quite a few Jews did believe in “Samael ha-satan,” an entity more like the Christian “Satan” than like “ha-satan” of the Book of Job.Most Jews do not believe in a Devil, and many do not literally believe in “ha-satan” of the Book of Job either. But I once knew a Jewish mystic who did believe in both a Devil and “ha-satan.” He regarded them as two distinct entities. To him, the Devil (a rebel against Yahweh and ruler of the evil inclination in humans) was “the Greater Satan”, whereas “ha-satan” of the Book of Job (the heavenly prosecuting attorney and secret police agent) was “the lesser Satan.”
  3. The Book of EnochAlthough the Book of Enoch is not in the Bible, it is believed by scholars to have been one of the sources of the New Testament’s idea of Satan. In the Book of Enoch, the leader of the fallen angels is Azazel.
  4. Satan in the New Testament and ChristianityFirst, see this article by Elaine Pagels, a leading scholar of the history of the Devil concept:Below are some articles on the Christian view of Satan, mostly by Christians. In the New Testament, Satan is regarded as a very powerful being. He is the “God of the world” (yes! — “God” — see 2 Corinthians 4:4), “Prince of this world” (e.g. John 14:30), “Prince of the power of the air” (Ephesians 2:2), and a being with enough power that He could, with even the slightest hope of being convincing, “tempt” Jesus by offering him power in exchange for worship (Matthew 4:9). And Christians traditionally lump together “the Devil, the world, and the flesh.”Christian belief in the power of Satan was even greater in the first ten centuries of Christianity than in most subsequent centuries. Before St. Anselm wrote his theological works in the 10th century C.E., many Christians believed in the “ransom theory of the atonement,” i.e. the idea that Jesus’s death on the cross was a ransom payment by God to Satan. For more about this, if you happen to be curious about the history of Christian theology, see the following articles:To people not from a hardcore Christian background, the above articles on the “Doctrine of the Atonement” may seem a rather arcane discussion of theological minutiae. The main point is simply that the Devil was acknowledged as having even more power during the first ten centuries C.E. than later.
  5. Absurdity of “cosmic Good” and “cosmic Evil”Regarding the unlikelihood of a cosmic Creator God who is both all-powerful and all-“Good” in any humanly meaningful sense, see also The problem of evil.
  6. Favorable reinterpretations of Satan
  7. The NephilimLastly, some articles (mostly by Christians, but also some by non-Christians) about the angelic “Sons of God” who mated with human women, contradicting the usual Christian idea that angels are sexless. Some Christians find ways to explain this away, e.g. the idea that the “Sons of God” were actually humans of the “Line of Seth,” rather than angels. Others reject this explanation.Among those fundy Christians who reject the “Line of Seth” theory and accept the angelic theory, many tend also to talk a lot about UFO’s, which they believe are piloted by demons rather than by physical ET’s. For example:
