    The bible tells us the meaning of devil, satan,  these are describing the person, which means resister, going against,  other character words are slander,  liar, manslayer,
    Joh 8:44 You are from your father the Devil, and you wish to do the desires of your father. That one was a murderer when he began, and he did not stand fast in the truth, because truth is not in him. When he speaks the lie, he speaks according to his own disposition, because he is a liar and the father of the lie.
    He is also a known fallen Angel who accuses
    People not deserving of God's love,
    Job 2:4But Satan answered Jehovah: “Skin for skin. A man will give everything that he has for his life.
    Job 2:5But, for a change, stretch out your hand and strike his bone and flesh, and he will surely curse you to your very face.”
    Notice even though Job was a victim of satan , he said a man , or any man would turn against the Heavenly Father.
    This is the opposer of the True God.
    Re 12:10 I heard a loud voice in heaven say: “Now have come to pass the salvation and the power and the Kingdom of our God and the authority of his Christ, because the accuser of our brothers has been hurled down, who accuses them day and night before our God!
    We all are accused by him.
    The point is are people proving him right ?

      Why isn't Cain listed in Adam's genealogy, but Able is?
      When you discover that the "fruit" that both Adam and Eve ate was NOT an apple or any type of edible fruit, your eyes will be open past the myths.

      4.God defeated the Devil in the garden by stating the first phophesy,
      Ge 3:15And I will put enmity between you and the woman and between your offspring and her offspring. He will crush your head)(JESUS),and you will strike him in the heel.”(satan)

    A generic archetypal figure who represents evil, wrong-doing, and harm to others on one hand, and the scapegoat for all human suffering, selfishness, world problems, and lack of accountability on the other.

      Kenneth no it was not an apple, but notice right after eating ,Gen 3:7Then the eyes of both of them were opened, and they realized that they were naked. So they sewed fig leaves together and made loin coverings for themselves
      The fruit mention fig

    Evil as a noun describes the d(evil) It is: The force of things that are morally bad. (Merriam Webster)
    Evil is the complete absence of love, and as such, permits no higher morality whatsoever. Evil lacks creativity, as it is a spirit form which is unable to create; thus it steals. It is that which destroys, having no way to promote life, as it, once again, cannot create any new thing of itself. Evil feeds from the excessive wrongdoing of humans in order to remain extant. Were all humans to become unselfish, loving and balanced, evil could not exist. It would wither away, never to return, having nothing to "feed" off of. Evil exists in part, because many humans think that morality is relative. It is not. There is righteousness and there is evil.....and, thankfully, they are not alike, primarily because one has no love---not one iota. For anyone who is confused, I am speaking of subtle nuances here.

      Bill  the last 5, why is satan still around ,
      Basically because of accusations he made about humans , and God.
      Time has answered all these accusations , example of Job . Job 2:4
      But Satan answered Jehovah: “Skin for skin.
      Job 2:5, he will curse

      There is some truth in his words
      They might not be satan himself , but they can very well be his representives.
      Anyone can claim a position , does not mean it's from God the Father,
      Notice,
      Joh 8:44 says satan is a father too.

    Grace,
    Contrary to (my) childhood teachings, the devil; Satan; That Old Dragon does NOT wear red underwear and carry a red hot trident (pitchfork). No. But that is what I was led to believe. Upon adulthood and acceptance of Jesus, my eyes were opened to the FACT that Satan appears as though an angel of light; quiet spoken; befriends the heartbroken; agrees with you about your anger; and can quote just enough of the Bible to deceive you IF you are not into "reading to show thy self approved."
    And when deceiving someone, it does not happen (this much) instantly, like in the case of Eve. No recording in the KJV just how long Satan had to flirt with her and tell her how God was not right in telling her and Adam that if they ate of the tree of good and evil they would not die. Oh, Jesus called him the father of lies.
    And in the first chapter of Job, when God asked him where he had been, he said going up and down the earth seeking whom I may devour . . .the kicker is that when satan is in God's presence, he MUST tell the truth, because even Satan knows that God cannot be deceived.
    So please pass this along to whomever might be wondering why the devil is so nice to them. Thank you.

    Did God create everything?  Did God create Himself?
        Is the Devil a creation of God?  Why would God create a Devil?
    Does 'Good' need 'Bad' because without it, there can be no 'Good'?
        Can God defeat the Devil?
    Is God all powerful?  Why doesn't God expunge the Devil? 

    I have all the questions.  I have none of the answers.

      Yes, No. Yes, because he gave mankind a free will to choose either Him or Satan because God will not push Himself on anyone; No; YES; Yes, simply because He wants us to choose who we serve. I gave you the answers that I knew, Bill. Hope you are okay.

      1.God's existence is not based on our existence he was always, no beginning no end , like a perfect circle.
      2.The word devil is not a name but describes anyone that is an resister of God our Heavenly Father.
      3.Ge 1:31 everthing made Good.

    he embodies everything that God does not. God is light, Devil is dark. God is everything good in this world, Devil is everything bad, shattered and broken. God Promotes healing and restoration, Devil is for destruction, sickness, pain and sorrow. God wants Joy, happiness. Devil wants misery and depression. Devil is dark, nasty, consuming, God is Truth, the Devil is the father of lies...Devil is Death, where as God is life....etc etc.this could go on forever
