    Satan the Devil is real. Jesus and the apostle Paul this fact

    Most people think, feel, or believe that Satan the Devil is a figment of one's imagination or that the Devil can be anyone. However, that's not the case according to the statements Jesus made about Satan the Devil.
    (John 12:31, John 14:30, and John 16:11).......Even the apostle Paul knew that Satan the Devil is real (2nd Corinthians 4:3,4).

    There is no devil no Satan. These are only ways to control the masses.

      Sorry you feel that way. That is exactly what Satan wants you to believe.

    Which devil? Which Satan?

    Are we talking Old Testament where Satan is the Adversary, an angel who works for God to argue the sins of humanity before him? Like in Job where God and Satan settle a bet and God gives Satan permission to murder all of Job's kids?

    Or Satan as in God's archnemesis? Satan was later conflated with an old testament passage about Lucifer who was an entirely separate figure.

    Suffice it to say that the Bible does not agree with itself on who or what the devil/Satan is. So if the source material for this superstition is internally inconsistent that means I should give it even less credence than the average superstition.

      There's only one Satan the Devil. He is the same from beginning to end, from Genesis to Revelation. Satan rules  over countless demons that are under his control and whom he uses to control the masses, mankind "alienated" from God (Ephesians 4:18,19)

      Think you need to study the Bible a bit more and research mythology. Satan means adversary, in the OT he works for God essentially as a prosecution attorney arguing the sins of mankind before God (hence his role in Job).

    The apostle John mentioned Satan the Devil at Revelation 12:9-12
    There was a time in mankind's past history before the year 1914, that Satan the Devil wreaked havoc and contentiousness in the heavens among God's loyal angels, before he and his horde of disloyal angels was permanently kicked out of the heavens to the vicinity of the earth.  (Revelation 12:7-10)
