  • From what I've read...the god of the Bible has way more blood on his hands than Satan.

  • They are only following what is written in the bible. They need a good to follow and keep them on the straight and narrow. They also need someone to blame for anything they deem not with the church. Therefore, God made man and set out rules and punished wicked That equals good. And Devil made Eve eat the apple and tempted her to do evil. That equals bad. Simple. LOL

  • I'm looking for characteristics and actions more than anything as explanations of why you view one good and the other evil. What does/has Satan do/done that is evil and the same question about God being good.

  • Because God gave us the bible, a guide to follow to have a good life. In it it tells you to honor your parents, respect your spouse, teach your children, warns men to financially take care of your family. Even in the OT it tells you not to eat certain things, although most people dont feel they need to follow but there are things,like not to eat fat, now we all know that that is bad for us. He also warns us of what satan will try to do and most of us has seen that what the bible states is true.

  • "Satan is a deciever and the father of lies"

    But what specifically makes you say this? HOW has he lied or deceived people? What are the things he does that makes him a liar?

  • He makes ppl think that God doesn't exist, or that if He does, that God is ultimately uncaring because of the evil stuff that happens in this world.
    God's goodness is proven by His continued longsuffering on our behalf, which can lead us to repentance and faith in Him.
