    Satan used to be called Lucifer. Lucifer means morningstar or bearer of light. He was a very powerful angel. He decided to sin against God and say that he would be God and ascend above the stars. His name has been changed to Satan. Satan means accuser or adversary. He also brought down Angels with him. Angels are now called demons. Demon means destroyer. They debatably mated with woman and this was much of the reason why God flooded the earth. The result were men called Nephilim which were giants. After God created man Satan deceived them in the form of a snake. Sin and death and a curse was now brought into the earth. The Bible now says that Satan is the ruler of the earth for now. It says that the whole world is under his sway. So Satanism began when he rebelled against God, turned angels from God, and deceived mankind and ultimately took power over the world through the hearts of men. Now however there is a formal religion called Satanism however this is not Satanism in its purest sense. Real Satanism is anything against the will of God so false politicians, false teachers and prophets, and those who cause evil are the real potent satanist. It is those who do the deeds not those who confess a name and wear black.

    However ultimately Satan is defeated. Satan and His demons will will be cast into the lake of fire. And man can no longer be accused because Jesus made a way to the Father through His sacrifice. When Jesus comes back He will reestablish His rule on the earth.
