Why do people confuse God and Satan when looking at the world's suffering?
The roles of God and Satan are pretty clear, aren't they?
Imagine the owner of a company that is good, but he has a director that is evil.
So who has the company in his hands? The owner or the director?
The owner has the company in his hands because he owns it. The director does not own it, but the director is messing things up? So it is with God who own everything in this world and Satan who is messing things up?
So your next question will be: why did the owner allow the director to come and mess things up?
He did not. HR (Adam) hired him and gave him that right. But no worries, the owner knows about this director and he already arranged for this director to be fired....it is written in the last book of the Bible.
Once this director is fired all of those who sided with him and contributed in messing things up will be fired too. Just to be sure nobody is around that will continue the mess. They will be tossed out into the lake of fire.
Who will inherit the earth? All those who were loyal to the owner...
So where are you? Are you loyal to the owner or are you taking sides with the evil director and criticizing the owner and those who are loyal to him?

Perhaps because many have never studied the Bible to find out what the truth is.
See: 1 John 5:19 The whole world is lying in the power of the wicked one (Satan).Source(s): NWT

If a plane crashes, and almost everybody dies, except for one baby who then lives on as an unhappy orphan....what part of all that in detail is caused by God and what exactly is caused by Satan?

So Satan is on God's payroll?

According to the bible your gawd created Satan, Was that by accident or did he do it to amuse himself? Then he commanded entire tribes to be slaughtered including the women and children but allowed the conquers to keep the young virgin girls for themselves for sex toys. That doesn't sound very good to me. Then he decides to kill the entire population on the planet except one family. Mass murderer status here. But it gets better, he then decides to come to the Earth as his alter ego so he can sacrifice himself to himself so that he can forgive himself for breaking a rule that he created knowing before hand that would be broken. I wish I was making this up but that is the cliff notes on the myth the bible tells. Hope this helps.

honestly telling : in all holy books it is written, " what u sowed shall u reap, either it is good or bad " ..this calculation never ends. On the path of calculation one can not attain god because everything that we are using is of god.
we are responsible for our good and bad time, in this pond. In this prison one must hv to eat what he planted for himself.
Moreover if u are having expectation that god will come in this world and will make everything right then here again u are thinking wrong. God made the duality. eg good, bad, right wrong, love, hate , angels , evils etc
No one can break the one side of this duality in which we are living. Even ur body is made with same concept.
we can not read mind of god, but it is clear god made us a good person, as we can see in ourselves, and it is our choice what to do in our life ..we can not say that god is responsible for all evil things .It is random activities of living beings who are in this duality.

And if the owner does nothing to control or remove the evil director, then he's a pretty crappy businessman.

Except the bible says God is responsible for everything. Even evil.
