Synopsis

Does the Bible reveal that God created Satan?
Will Satan and his demons torture the wicked forever in a burning hell?
Christianity asserts these teachings are found in the Bible. The Bible itself, however, reveals something different!
The trouble with the whole Satanism question is that Christianity's view of "Satan" and Satanism is more colored by the views of the Essenes, Dante, and John Milton's Paradise Lost than by any reading of the Bible itself. The Essenes' view of punishment of the ungodly in the eternal fires of hell, a hell run by the chief evil spirit with his angels, is precisely that of Christianity today. However, nowhere in the Bible does it say anything of the sort. In fact, the Bible in the original languages does not mention "Satan" as an entity at all.
Bestselling author and translator Dr. A. Nyland is an ancient language scholar and historian who served as faculty at the University of New England, Australia. Dr. Nyland is also the translator of "Books of Enoch: New Translation with Extensive Commentary," "The Source New Testament with Extensive Notes on Greek Word Meaning," "The Psalms: Translation with Notes," among others.
