So...is the devil the god of hell?

Is the devil technically a god of hell because he is immortal and in control of hell? There is only one God right? Just confused!

  • Revelation 12:7-9 (New International Version)

    7And there was war in heaven. Michael and his angels fought against the dragon, and the dragon and his angels fought back. 8But he was not strong enough, and they lost their place in heaven. 9The great dragon was hurled down—that ancient serpent called the devil, or Satan, who leads the whole world astray. He was hurled to the earth, and his angels with him.


    The devil was an angel who believe he was God. He thought he was just as powerful as God. Because of this, he was cast out of heaven. Devil is a fallen angel, nothing more.

  • No he is not the god of hell. He is not the manager of hell. He is not even the employee of the month in hell. LOL.

    Hell is a place that God is preparing to in order to punish Satan and the fallen angels for eternity. He will not be there with a pitchfork torturing people. He will be in agony forever. He is not there yet.

    The Bible says that at the end of the world, "And the devil that deceived them was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone, where the beast and the false prophet [are], and shall be tormented day and night for ever and ever." Rev. 20:10

  • God is the God of heaven and hell. Actually Satan is the God of this world, even that is too deep to go into here . There is one absolute supreme God, satan is the lesser god just as there are many "little gods.' (mostly man made)

  • There is only ONE God in the Christian faith. Satan is NOT a God, just merely a fallen angel. I have seen him referred to as the "Prince of this world" but he is NOT a god.

  • Jesus said that Satan is the god of this world, he offered Jesus all the Kingdoms of the world to become ruler of and Jesus rejected that offer, he didn't say that Satan didn't own them or that they weren't his to give because you see, when Adam rejected God as ruler he was choosing Satan and self-rule instead, Oh, and Satan in not Immortal just as we are not immortal, God can and will destroy Satan and those rejecting Him in the Lake of Fire, because it's the final or second death from which none will ever be resurrected..., Jesus proved that “the ruler of the world,” God’s Adversary, Satan, had “no hold” on him and that Jesus had indeed “conquered the world.” (Joh 14:29-31; 16:33)

  • This greek word "qeoV means "a god " speaking of BOTH "Jesus (at John 1:1) as the Word" and "Satan ( at 2Cor 4:4) as ruler of this world"
    and this Greek word "qeou " means "Jehovah God"

  • in my opinion the catholic faith actually has a number of gods. You have GOD, Jesus, mother Mary (as in mother goddess), the holy spirit, and then the devil (as in god of the under world). So THE monotheistic faith can be viewed as a polytheistic faith.
