Here's what I think about Satan...since you asked...

Satan is referred to as the Father of Lies...correct?....and if someone is abusive...REALLY abusive...say, to children, the abuser was probably abused as a chlid....he learned that behavior from someone else....it's transgenerational...the abused become the abusers (if they're not healed by love)....so, in these instances, if each preceding generation is responsible for "modeling" or corrupting the generation it's caring for, then if you go alllllllll the way back, and the sins are "answered upon the heads of the fathers"...then Satan has the hugest catchers mitt in the universe, right? And since the Plan of Salvation seems to operate on polarity (to my mind), then Satan is the counterpoint to the Atonement...If Jesus was loving and perfect enough to atone for our sins and take them away from us, conditional upon our being loving to one another and obedient to His commandments, then...I think Satan kinda sorta RECEIVED all of those sins....OR WILL in a future time...does that make sense?....so all the acts of terrorism by 16 year olds and the shootings done by children and the acts of hideous violence and crimes against humanity...all of that will be answered upon the head of Satan...the counterpoint to the Atonement....I'm open to discussion on this, whether I know you or not...please feel free to share....thx.
