    Or rather, what made him think he could beat/do it better than God?

    I have a hard time with this.

    It seems to me that the relationship between God and Satan is similar to the relationship between Zeus and Hades… Brothers. Hades knows his place, but is always scheming. Zeus resides in the heavens were he rules the lesser of gods (angels?).

    If Satan, the greatest of the angels, thought for a second that he could outdo God at anything, it seems to me that their relationship wasn't Creator/creation, but rather Master/servant.

    Does anyone else find it difficult to believe that an angel would have the balls to go up against the supreme and all powerful creator without having some kind of edge? Is it the Mormons who believe that God and Lucifer were brothers? I can see how they might have come to that conclusion tbh.

    Discus.

    I googled my question and got this answer, though I think it sidestepped it all together.

    god obviously cant handle the fucker or hed be gone or healed or dead or whatever god does to evil do'ers...

    but its been hundreds of millions of years and satans still around

    Does he make animals convert? Obviously not they just innocent bystanders in our screw ups. Theres animals in heaven youve never even seen. But on the lucifer thing i heard revelations was sealed from his view so he doesnt know how it ends.

    its a way to explain the balance of good and evil

    that is all.

    to have have light, you have to have had darkness.

    the shit isnt meant to be taken literally.

    He never did. It says "lucifer said in his heart" not that he tried or did. GOD saw iniquity in him. He kicked him out after refusing to bow to man. An during the dinosaurs was prolly the war in heaven.

    So Satan's just pissed he got kicked out, eh?

    What about the 1/3 that followed? Did he own 1/3 of the angels or something?

    in heaven satan was a receprical of praise. He used to take all the praises in him and turn it into music directly to GOD. Thats what got him cocky. He wants to be worshipped. thats always been his goal he even told jesus if he bowed to worship him hed make jesus a king of all nations. In the end the same thing hes going to demand praise from the followers of the antichrist. The 1/3 of the angels chose to follow him. They have freewill too, and at the time satan had a lot of influence. the angels reported to him. He was the head angels so they were already at his command. Some chose to follow some realized that what he was doing wasnt right.

    ^thats fine but as you start learning ur going to start craving info. asking questions and finding answers. An a lot of that u can find at a good church. try apologetics teachers. That will help for your initial questions. And ask God to reveal himself so u can see him working in your life. Many times he will for new believers.

    i thought satan was like the choir director in heaven, he got a little taste of favortism from god and wanted more.. he wanted gods spot. therefor god cast him and those fallen angels into hell.. i don't think he believes he can defeat god, but rather he is pulling out all the stops to drag everyone to hell that he possibly can.. started by discrediting the gospel

    yawl nigga's is acting hella relaxed about it too, like it aint that serious. but trust me you'll have a rude awakening. if you sleep to long.
