White Horse Inn: Conversational Theology

Your Adversary the Devil

Who is the devil? Where does he come from, and how do modern perceptions of him line up with biblical teaching? On this episode of White Horse Inn, Justin Holcomb, Bob Hiller, and special guest Pastor David Cassidy discuss the idea of personified evil and the way caricatures of Satan and his origins have transformed through the ages and are reflected on the pages of Scripture.

Quote:

“All we can say with regard to the origin of the devil is that he comes into existence at God’s good pleasure as all creatures do, and that he was created good, but that he fell. Now beyond that, we aren’t told a great deal. We’re told far more about his end than we are about his origin. And it’s that focus on Christ’s triumph over the darkness, rather than the origin of the darkness, which the apostles were majoring on.”
