A lot of Christians mistakenly think that God and Satan are constantly struggling with one another. And this might have been true if it wasn't for a very important point that many people overlook: God created Lucifer. I mean... the angel already lost!
Now that doesn't mean that Lucifer can't make a point here and there. Making a point is all he actually can do. He won't win. He is physically and spiritually incapable of winning. But he does try and make an argument with whatever time he has left. The only reason he has had any power at all is because humans have given it to him.
The word Satan basically just means "The Adversary." But the question here should be, "Who is Lucifer the adversary of?" Well, it's certainly not the being that created him. Yes, it's probably us. Remember that we are the same species of people who created the golden calf. We are ripe for the picking, as far as Satan is concerned.
But when it comes to this nonsensical struggle between God and Satan, it just strikes me as a bit silly. There never was a struggle. Satan can make a few arguments, and sometimes he can even be right. I mean... he certainly has a very low opinion of us. He was able to temp Adam and Karen... I mean Eve. That was pretty bad. But at the end of the day, he is not the strongest person out there. There is no struggle. There is no fight. By default, God already wins. It's not fair. It was never meant to be.
