The Bible states that God is all powerful & all knowing. Then he knew that his most beloved angel - Lucifer - would fall. Why would God make Lucifer then if it wasn't for a reason? 2ndly, is Satan really Lucifer? The Bible only mentions the name Lucifer once while Satan is mentioned many times. In the 1st chapter of Job Satan is working for God. The Bible also states that God's favorite cherub (no name) is cast in to the a dark pit while Satan roams the Earth in Job.
My own belief is that God created Satan to work for him. It's Satan's job to test humans because God humans freewill to choose how s/he lives her/his own life. As such Satan's job is to tempt people to see if the person deserves to go to Heaven or Hell after death.
I don't think Lucifer & Satan are the same creature. Lucifer is trapped forever in Hell while Satan wanders the world to tempt people because God can't directly interfere.
