It depends on a number of factors: acceptance of the Trinity, how one defines "son", and so on. For example, there's not much room for them to be brothers in Trinitarian theology. According to the Trinity, Jesus is not a separate person from God the Father, while pretty much everyone (Trinitarian or otherwise) accepts that Satan most certainly is a separate ...

The fact that God comes with an army of angels represents unanimous agreement in God's justice in His treatment of sin.

What does it mean that Satan is “god of this world”? One might use an illustration of the tenancy of earth as represented as a lease. This tenancy (stewardship) was given to Adam. His sin allowed tenancy to transfer to Satan. Satan is able to influence this world through those who are eager to do his will; John 8:44 Ye are of your father the devil, ...

After some study, I can conclude that there is no biblical evidence for Satan being omnipresent. God is omnipresent in the sense that where ever we go, He is there: Psalm 139:7-8 Where shall I go, away from Your Spirit, And where shall I flee from Your presence? If I ascend into heaven, You are there; If I make my bed in Sheol, there You are. And ...

I don't know any biblical basis for Satan being omnipresent. From what I know only God is omnipresent and this is written in the prayer to the Holy Spirit that says: "O Heavenly King, the comfortor, the spirit of Truth, Who art present everywhere and fillest all things;" From what Ι know from an Orthodox Greek monk and from an Orthodox Greek ...

Satan has been condemned! He wants to take as many with him as possible just out of spite. He is a great example of beautiful on the outside but not inwardly. Although, we get the idea that the outside has caught up wiuth the inner quality. That free will gets you at times. Too bad for Satan. Let us hope we all fair out better.
