Satan is an invention

Invented, I suggest, because we find it impossible to accommodate the dark, the evil, the ghastly of this world within our idea of who God is and what God is like. It’s easy to accommodate things like love, kindness, mercy, peace within the traditional concept of God, but in excluding the other stuff I propose that we end up with an extremely limited idea of God, and, perhaps more importantly, a very confused idea about what we are doing here.
