Billy Graham jumps the shark and shows the utter delusion of Christianity as he tries to answer this question:
According to Graham, this is the source of Satan:
Satan hasn’t always existed; only God is eternal. At one time, the Bible indicates, Satan was one of God’s most powerful angels, created by God to do His will. But pride took hold of him, and he decided to revolt against God and put himself in charge of the whole universe
So we are to believe that an all-powerful, all-knowing God set out to create for himself an angel “to do His will.” But God was incompetent and Satan instead revolted against God. Why would anyone want to worship an incompetent god?
Here is what happened next according to Graham:
Satan’s revolt failed and he was cast out of heaven — but he still is at work, and we must never underestimate his power or his ability to deceive us. The Bible says he is the one “who leads the whole world astray” (Revelation 12:9).
Instead of destroying Satan and ending the problem, the incompetent God “casts Satan out of heaven.” This is incompetence on top of incompetence. And note that Satan is now more powerful than God. Satan “leads the whole world astray”. Why doesn’t God overpower Satan and lead the whole world toward good?
What is God’s response to Satan?
Yes, the devil is our foe — but listen: He is a defeated foe! By His death and resurrection Jesus Christ conquered death and Hell and Satan — and someday that victory will be complete when Christ comes again.
Jesus defeated Satan, but he didn’t finish the job, because Satan is still with us! We have to wait for Jesus to come again to finally get the job done. This is incompetence on top of incompetence on top of incompetence.
Why would anyone with a brain believe nonsense like this? The story is a complete fairy tale. Even if you choose to ignore that fact, you must admit that you are worshiping a being who stacks incompetence on top of incompetence on top of incompetence. Who would accept such a foolish “god”?
If you are a Christian who would like to break free from this sort of delusion, this video may be able to help you. As you watch it, keep in mind that Billy Graham has described the God he believes in as incompetence on top of incompetence on top of incompetence:
