Why does God created Satan? Does God knows the past present and future of his creation(s)? If God knows the Past Present and the FUTURE, then he might be called as God. If he knows the future then why did he created Satan? If he might have known the future, he will know how bad the Satan will sooner become? Then y it is neccesary to create him? Is it for Testing humans, temping them with d help of Satan to get Goodname for God, through Satan... Does this implies God is perfect? Thks... :-)

I don't believe God knows the future like many believe. Some things maybe but not all. I'm sure God instructed Jesus to send the 12 Apostles out the first time to only the Jews but then the Jews rejected Jesus and His teaching. If God does know the future then he would have known this would happen and I don't believe He did. As for Satan I believe the only Satan that actually exists is within the evil spirit we build over the years. I believe a young child is proof of this. Any evil spirit they have when they get older is developed over time as they grow up. The world they are exposed to as they grow up determines the strength of the evil spirit they have when they get older. Also it is a proven fact if you confine a child and feed them only certain information you can totally control what that child becomes. This is one reason I say it is so important that we as parents control where our kids get their information.

Romans 2: 9-11, There will be trouble and distress for EVERY human being who does evil: first the Jews, then for the Gentile; but glory, honor and peace for everyone who does good: first for the Jew, then for the Gentile. For God does not show favoritism. "Gentile" in the Bible refers to non-Israelite nations I believe that would us unless of course you are a jew. Paul was a teacher to the Gentiles

just a question my friend, if you are already happy and contented would you ask help from God??? i mean,,i know i am not that prayerful nor a saint...but i believe he made satan and all the elements and things in this world to make us strong and be aware that He is here. it is just my belief and opinion my friends. i can still be wrong because no one really knows the reason except God Himself.

God didnt create Satan,Satan created Satan. God gave us free will to enable us to choose what we believe or dont believe. I have to say as a parent I want my kids to choose to love me not do so because i made them. But anyway back to Satan he chose of his own free will to defy God.Thinking he could be as strong and powerful our of greed. He was therefore cast out of heaven by God. Now Satan's goal is to get as many souls as he can away from God.Thus come our free will. Either we choose to follow the good,God,or we choose to give into our own fallen nature or humanity and follow Satan. Ultamatly,we have the same choice as Satan did. It is our choice! For me I choose God. I have seen so many miricles there is no doubt what so ever he is there loving us and always calling us to him. you want protection from Satan he is the only way. In Christs love, Shelley

God created Lucifer (Satan) just like he created all other angels. He was the highest of all angels but wasn't content on serving and worshiping God. He wanted to be God and rule. Knowing this we also know that God gave the angels free will. How else would Satan choose to go against God. Why did God not destroy Satan and his falling followers (demons)? I don't really know the answer. I would say because Satan is already damned.... he already knows his ending. If God wanted us to be damned he would not have came up with a plan to make the wrongs right again, through his son Jesus Christ. Does God know our past, present and future. I believe we have free will to make decisions but I believe in a way he does know. Read Psalms 139: 1- 16 and Jeremiah 1:5 John the Baptist's birth was prophesied way before he was born, hundreds of years before. Did John the Baptist have free will? I believe that he did. I believe that he had a strong relationship with God and because of that he wanted to follow God's direction. The Bible says as a child he was filled with the Spirit. Is there a Satan and demons? Jesus testified to their existence in Matthew 4:1-11 and in Luke 8:27-33. In Isaiah 14: 12-15, it talks about the spiritual war between God and Satan.

Satan is a creation of the monotheistic, created by the religious authorities of Islam, Judaism, and Christianity, to keep people in control. This fictitious character now exists only in the minds of the faithful. Cheers and happy mylotting

I know that there are a lot of theories in this subject. but I will tell you one point of view. there is no satan. there is free will. we created satan or demons with our bad deeds, the first sin of adam and eve etc'. for example, god gave you a will of passion, if you choose to do with it bad or good things it is your choise and your way only. it is your free will only. so there is no bad in passion, just in what you can do with it if you won't choose the good way. have a nice day and happy mylottying.

I'm not familiar where the word Satan came from but I know that Satan and Lucifer is only one. He's an angel in heaven before. He's one of the leader angels I think. But due to pride and envy, He started a protest against God. Reason why he was fallen out from the Heaven. Until then, He'd been an enemy. This only proves that God yes maybe the source of Satan but what Satan is was not from God. It's form Satan himself. In order not to confuse ourselves, let's always remember that God is the source of all good things. Good things not bad things.

There are many many debatable questions that could arise from the bible and this is clearly one of those. God may know that Satan will be an enemy. Or He might not know it that's why He waged war with him (Satan). But nonetheless, Satan is really for testing humans if they really believe in God, etc. Try reading the whole Bible, maybe the answer is there.
