Yes...they are one and the same. He is also called Lucifer.
The one and only adversary walking up and down the earth is Satan to get to the weakness link. Yes, Satan is the Devil. He was once an angel, God cast out of heaven. The devil knows the word of God. He has many disguises too! The bible speaks of him as being called Legion (for they are many).
I was always led to believe the Devil and Satan were one and the same, which coincides with the response of the rest of the group.
Since I have nothing new to add to the collective answers, I should tell you my reason for contributing is just to say that Phoenixarizona has an interesting interpretation of Satan/the devil's role in the cosmos. Thanks for throwing the idea out there. I kinda like the idea of referring to Lucifer as the "Wrath of God".
satan,the devil, the evil one, the murderer is one.
The devil is one and only.
There is no seperate devil and seperate satan. he is all and above.
Hubber dahoglund, satan is not God's sort of adviser. God does not need advising.
Hubber phoenixarizona, satan is not, has never been God's right hand man. satan has always been a bum and a loser.
I like how everyone fails to cite any sources of any kind. You know what that means? It means all of your answers are mere speculation, and a speculative answer is a USELESS answer. Anyway...
The words 'Devil' and 'Satan' are often used interchangeably to refer to the same personage. See "http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Satan":
"Satan (Hebrew: ???????? ha-Satan ("the accuser"); Arabic: ??????? ash-Shay??n ("the adversary") , , ,"
"The Devil (Greek: ???????? or diávolos = 'slanderer' or 'accuser') . . ."
There are also some good points made in "http://secweb.infidels.org/?kiosk=articles&id=310" regarding the logic (or illogic) of the existence of a supernatural adversary.
The name Satan is derived from Hebrew: it simply means 'the adversary' - and was usually used to denote the king/emperor of a nation/empire that was invading Israel whereas the term 'devil' (hairy one - also Hebrew) was applied to the gods that the invaders worshiped.
The name Lucifer was a complete mistranslation (Hebrew scholars never use this name) and shouldn't have appeared in the Bible at all as it was the Roman name for the planet Venus (it means 'morning star').

A question for Jewish people. Do you believe in the Devil?I mean in the way that Christians do. I know that satan comes from Hebrew and means simply 'adversary'. I also know that devil comes from Greek: diabolos, and means simply 'accuser' or 'slanderer'. I know, also, that the name Lucifer,...

How and Why Did Satan turn Ugly?Satan was the most beautiful angel in God's Kingdom. Now it is depicted with grossly looking features, red and has a forked or arrow ended tail and is meaner than anything on this earth. So why did it change all of a sudden in the Bible? It wasn't...

Who said the devil is ugly... Is our perception of the devil false?
