Re: Is Satan really all that bad?

I'm curious. If God is all knowing, then God knew what Satan would do, long before he made man or angels. And if God didn't want man to eat from the tree of knowledge, why put the tree in the garden? Why make a tree at all?
Reading the scriptures, God doesn't actually forbid man from eating the fruit. He tells them not to, cause WHEN they do, they will no longer be innocents. God says when, not if. God knew man eventually would. He created Satan to ensure they did.

Without evil there can be no good, so it must to be good to be evil sometimes ...
