How Does Satan Work?
What is Satan’s purpose? The Bible says that he is both “the evil one,” and “the great deceiver.” He wants to do evil. He also wants evil to prevail on the earth, so he wants others (everyone) to do evil. He is clever and he uses deceptive means to accomplish this, and he has many demons to assist him. 1 Peter 5:8 says, “Be of sober spirit, be on the alert. Your adversary, the devil, prowls around like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour.”
