I'm not asking this to be snarky, I'm interested in the viewpoints of Christians (or others who follow Abrahamic God and share the belief in Satan)... it is said over and over again that Satan is the father of lies, the great deceiver, etc. However, I don't believe that he ever actually is shown to be a liar by his own words - just by the epithets given to him.
Is it because the Bible says he is a liar? Because of other reasoning? Do you interpret, say, his words in the Garden of Eden to be untruthful even though he actually spoke the truth? How do you interpret that story?
I'm interested in all thoughts - I don't believe in a literal Being who is Satan, so "Satan isn't real" is not something I disagree with, but also not quite what I'm looking for.

Yes the bible does say that satan is a lier and it is true every word of the bible is true... Satan comes to lie,kill,steal and destroy thats why you see so much stuff bad in the world.. IF you are not of God you are of satan there is no in between. Satan wants people think of these other religions to get there minds of God when its not even about a religion its about a relationship with Jesus Christ... IF people would give God a chance they will not want to go back to the ways they are living its better then words can say.. Jesus is love and wants to give us whatever you ask .. Just give the Lord a chance and see that he is good all the time...

Exactly what lisarose said. The sad thing is a lot of people still believe this. The majority of Christians believe in the immortality of the soul. I believe the greatest lie Satan has ever told is to himself---
Isaiah14:13,14- "For thou hast said in thine heart, I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God: I will sit also upon the mount of the congregation, in the sides of the north: I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will be like the most High."
