Did God create Satan, or did Satan already exist?

Please don't respond by telling me he wasn't Satan when he was first made. That's not my question.

Update:

If you assert that God didn't create Satan, but rather the angel who became Satan, you're saying he created Satan.

    According to mythology Lucifer was an angel, created by god, as were all other angels.

    God created evil for us to know good. Satan was designed to tempt us. We fall for his trap. Only Jesus is able to stop his attempt. We are here to attain the knowledge of good and evil. Choose wisely.

    At our weekly Athiest meeting, Satan unmuted and said that since we are all Athiests, there couldn't have been anything or anyone who created Him.

    In the Jewish tradition, Lucifer (aka Satan) was God's attorney general, a kind of cosmic prosecuting attorney for evil doers. Only when Christianity appeared on the scene did he morph into the "Lord" of evil. Personally, I don't believe in "Satan", but I do know there is evil in the world--just not a personification of it. 

    Some scholars believe that the early Christians may have expropriated the idea of a "Satan" from the nearby Zoroastrian religion from Persia which posits a God of Light and a God of Darkness. Hence, "Satan" gets a promotion!!

    God created Lucifer, a magnificent angel of light ("Lucifer" means "bearer of light"), along with many other angels. Lucifer led a rebellion against God, which involved some of the other angels as well. These angels were cast out of Heaven forever, becoming demons. So yes, God created the angel who became Satan, just as He created the humans who choose to follow Satan to Hell. God created everything that exists.

    God didn't create Satan.  He started out as an angel.

  • Satan was an angel in heaven before becoming Satan the devil. The Bible clearly shows that pride became the angel's downfall that became Satan. Many other angels joined in this fallen angel's rebellion and became demons.
