Is Satan a man or ex-angel in hell or simply in us?
In the USA many adults are of the view that Satan is an embodiment, symbol and originators of evil rather than an actual personality, entity or a being. Within the Judeo-Christian religion, Satan's function is to seduce the man away from God and Godliness. In Christianity, Satan is the precise reverse of who Christ is and what he stands for. In the New Testament, it is stated that "Satan is the "devil," and the "diabolist". Accordingly, Satan is incredibly sly, cunning, insinuating, and the deceiver; crafty and ingenious in twisting people's minds. According to Jah (Yah), Satan has been Granted the Right to "Deceive the whole earth", and he has taken full benefits of that go-ahead.
He is called by various names in the Bible starting out as in angel, created by God but later casted out of heaven. Satan is the foe of the virtuous and works to bring down God's will. Satan is the ruler of Hell. In Islamic religion, Satan is known as the "Shaitan or Iblis". One that is evil like the "jinn" who refused to bow to Adam and disobeyed God and became one of the non-believers.
In the Hindu and Buddhist religion, they are called the "Rakshasas" in the form of demons or non virtuous spirits, who despises the words of God, hates men of virtuousness and morality, kills sages, seers and yogis.
The Bahai religion rejects the existence of the being of Satan, the devil or the Evil. It is rather regarded as the "non-existence of good" similar to the lack of light is the cause of darkness.
Many Satan worshippers believe that Jehovah is evil and Satan is good. They call him the prince of this world. Satirically speaking: Satan is Santa Claus and the Devil is driving down the chimney.
Most agree that Satan was cast out of heaven but where he was sent to and where his abode has been since has different opinions. Many are of the view that he was cast down to hell and has been there in chains of darkness ever since. Many say that his dwelling is in the space where we live. The most universal view is that he walks about in our world like a thunderous lion in the hunt for whom ever he may consume and will continue and continues to do so. Many believe that he resides in the heart of every wicked man and is the cause evil.
Satan is evil. Satan is bad. Satan is the arch-fraudster. Satan is the devil. Satan is out to claim as many souls as he can. Satan is the cause that there is sin and sufferings in the world. Satan is a representation of Mans dwelling as his prideful, carnal evil nature. Satan is going to lure us just when we are trying to pray and be good.
However, Satan can be powerless and will have no hold on you if you do not allow him space. Hereby declare Satan as powerless, one that no loner rules over you or influences you. If you don't, Satan will always be in the offing to claim your soul. If you don't Satan will be active and breathing and will live inside you.
