As an angel, Satan is a created being and therefore not equal in power or stature to God. Despite this, some wrongly view God and Satan as having comparable power.
Satan is called by many names in the Bible, including the dragon, serpent, devil, evil one, accuser, adversary, and enemy.
Some people deny the existence of Satan, while others cower in fear. A more balanced attitude is to accept his existence, realize he has power, but focus on God who is more powerful and will prevail.
A lifelong student of the Bible, Peter DeHaan, PhD, wrote the 700-page website ABibleADay.com to encourage people to explore the Bible. His main blog and numerous books urge Christians to push past the status quo and reconsider how they practice their faith in every area of their lives.
