Its all just *symantics*: The bottom line is: god created satan and if god is omnicient then he knew how satan was going to turn out even before he made him. In this sence, he chose to create this creature which would allow our suffereing. In other words, God is still responsible for our suffering.
Whatever way you look at it, god has presented us with (or if you prefer the term 'allowed') two options: "choose him or burn in hell".
It is at this point you respond with something like "well man can never fully understand the nature of god" or something...
Hey, I've read the bible too, besides confusing me with a bunch of contradiction, I'm not everly enlightened.
