    The Bible doesn't say a whole lot about him, particularly about the time before the creation of humankind. About all ist says is that satan is an angel, a created being, by God, and that he a happy camper with his position and decided to rebel. He managed to convince about 1/3 of the other angels to do the same. Much more of his described subsequent to mankind, especially with his interaction with us. Revelation provides a lot more about his sealed fate. Feel free to PM me if you's like to discuss this and related matters. Not that I am the foremost expert, mind you, but I did like the book better than the movies....

    Another good book to read, written by C.S. Lewis, is called, "The Screwtape Letters", set in England, during WW2.

    Because he's god and he has to give him the chance. God also knew Eve would disobey him but he had to create her and give her a chance anyway.

    If satan ever repented all would be forgiven, and god's arms are always open even though he knows it will never happen. God loves satan.

    Keep in mind that I don't believe any of this, I'm just talking from a christian perspective.

    I wonder if God has fewer regrets about Satan than about Pat Robertson.

    Yeah, I'm kinda that way too, but if god created satan and eve, which causes us to sin, and (if we're bad enough) to go to hell, then he isn't all loving.

    But if that's they way it's worded then, oh well.
