    Satan has only as much power as God allowed Him to have. We are not robots unable to choose whom we follow. Satan is on a leash and, one day, God will reel Him in and deal with Him AND all who choose to follow him. Decide whom you will follow and ensure that your eternal dwelling place will be with your creator because eternity means FOR EVER.

    The devil is not a big figure. In fact, when you are always with GOD the devil cannot even get near you. But that's the only reason he is far from you - GOD is with you. When you are not with GOD that's the time the devil can play tricks on you. But even so, GOD uses HIS power so that the devil can never depend on his superior abilities to defeat you. He has to use human beings to defeat other human beings. If no human beings will allow themselves to be used by the devil then he cannot really do anything whatsoever in this world. But very unfortunately for all of us the devil can always count on enough people around anywhere anytime to do errands for him. Be with GOD always. And the devil will have vast amount of power he cannot use against you. And human beings sent by the devil will not even want to have anything to do with you. GOD will see to it they behave while you're around.

    From the beginning, the devil tried to oppose God. The devil tried to usurp God's supremacy in Heaven. Now that evil one, the devil, is using people to oppose God's will on earth. With God's permission, this is happening to test mankind whether they will choose to serve God or serve the devil.

    The answer is very simple - the question is not relevent and does not matter. Neither entity exists other than in fiction. THe only evil on this planet is of the man made variety, the devil is merely some fiction dreamed into reality by the lies of the church to scare a population into doing what it tells them to do.

    He was created by God to be mighty and powerful, Lucifer the morning star. the fallen angel as he is referred to.

    He was cast down to hell when he refused to obey and serve God. In his hatred of God and his jealousy of us, he uses all his power to destroy all of mankind (if he could). Hence the competition for human souls.
