Forums - General Discussion - What's Satan's side of the story?

The Devil is depicted in the Christian Bible as being an evil being, and I'm sure most Christians agree with this depiction. Isn’t this unfair to the Devil? The only source we have to judge the Devil is through The Bible, which was written by only one party, God. For all we know, God twisted the story in a way that makes him seem like the “better man.” God could be boosting himself up while being unfair to the Devil. We only get one side of the story. Yet as we all know, there are two sides to every story. For all we know, the Devil could be a pretty nice guy.

I say we be reasonable about this situation and refrain from judging God or Satan until we get to hear both of their stories; it’s only fair. If two people got into a dispute, it would be silly to condemn one person without at least hearing his story, yet that is exactly how Satan is treated. I say this is grossly unfair to someone who could potentially be completely innocent. For all we know, God could have been lying about the Devil all along (No offence to God, just being fair here). I don’t think anyone can disagree with using fairness and reason to judge someone’s character.

Think about this for a second. What if the real God isn’t depicted in the Bible? Maybe, the real God wrote the Bible just to test us humans. Maybe, the real God intentionally created a story from only one biased perspective just to see if we would trust it. Maybe, the real God just wanted to see if we would condemn a poor soul without even hearing his story from his perspective. And to top it off, he made the Bible extremely persuasive with promises of eternal life to those who sided with God. This would be the ultimate test of fairness, and I’m afraid a lot of people have failed. 

Can anyone present any fair reasons to believe Satan is evil without using propaganda from God himself?

Hard to argue with that. But how about this: The bible was written extremly biased (=lied) in some parts, but the main statements are still included. The test is too see through the lies with the help of those statements. Humanity failed the test for a few thousand years^^

Damn lol hard to counter.

Paradise Lost is sort of told from the devil's side a bit. He's sort of the epic hero of the poem. I'd check it out.

"Pier was a chef, a gifted and respected chef who made millions selling his dishes to the residents of New York City and Boston, he even had a famous jingle playing in those cities that everyone knew by heart. He also had a restaurant in Los Angeles, but not expecting LA to have such a massive population he only used his name on that restaurant and left it to his least capable and cheapest chefs. While his New York restaurant sold kobe beef for $100 and his Boston restaurant sold lobster for $50, his LA restaurant sold cheap hotdogs for $30. Initially these hot dogs sold fairly well because residents of los angeles were starving for good food and hoped that the famous name would denote a high quality, but most were disappointed with what they ate. Seeing the success of his cheap hot dogs in LA, Pier thought "why bother giving Los Angeles quality meats when I can oversell them on cheap hotdogs forever, and since I don't care about the product anyways, why bother advertising them? So Pier continued to only sell cheap hotdogs in LA and was surprised to see that they no longer sold. Pier's conclusion? Residents of Los Angeles don't like food."

"The so-called "hardcore" gamer is a marketing brainwashed, innovation shunting, self-righteous idiot who pays videogame makers far too much money than what is delivered."

Well, without using the "propaganda from God himself", there really is nothing to suggest that he even does exist in the first place.



It seems pretty obvious to me that Satan was created to take the blame for all the shit that God allows to happen.
