Got a deep, thorny, mind-boggling Bible question? Send it to firstname.lastname@example.org and I’ll do my very best to answer it in 100 words or less.
Today, you get two questions for the price of one.
Here’s Question #1: What does the Bible reeeeeally say about Satan?
First, the whole horn/pitchfork/pointy tail thing is made up. That’s not in the Bible.
The Bible describes Satan as a fallen angel who rebelled against God, was thrown out of heaven and now battles humans and God. “Satan” literally means “adversary” and that’s exactly what he is. He’s also called the devil, the accuser, the evil one, the father of lies, the prince of darkness and the god of this age.
