9. Satan is not a guy in red with horns and a pointy tail
Halloween costumes may depict Satan as looking like a red-faced demon with horns, a pointy tail, and a pitchfork, but those are not depictions that match up with the Bible. In fact, the scriptures tell us that Satan was originally an angel crafted by God and his name was Lucifer, which means “bright morning star.” Satan was the most powerful angel that God created and was full of beauty and wisdom. Yet, pride got the better of him, and he became the Satan we now know as cunning and deceitful. Satan in the Hebrew language means “the accuser.” Satan tried to outdo God, but only ended up banishing himself from God’s kingdom.
