Are there "evil" or "bad" deities in your belief system?

Well, I assume it's different for everyone.  And probably different in different pantheons too.  But personally, in my belief system, no.  There is no evil deity or devil like character or god.  There is also no absolute perfect being either.  The Goddess is pretty close, but even she has "human" qualities.  Everything that exists contains good and bad and it is our duty to attempt to cleanse ourselves of the bad and focus on the good.  "And harm ye none" is one of the creeds I live by.  Hope that answered your question at least a little.

I am a mix between Buddhist and Pagan, and no we (I) don't believe in a "devil" kind of figure. As a PP said, there is good and bad to everything, just gotta work towards the good.

I am not Pagan but I hold no judgment either. In Christianity God is a perfect Creator and Satan is the evil temptor, if you will.

Different denominations tend to do things a bit differently. However, in my family we teach love, non judgement, and forgiveness. I try really hard to lead by example.

This. Every god and goddess have different aspects to themselves.
