But Israel shall be saved by the lord with everlasting salvation; you shall not be ashamed or also disgraced for forever and ever

My thoughts exactly. Jesus rejecting Satan's offers are him denying his own ego, something we must all face at one point or another. Those who embrace the light follow in Jesus' (Lucifer's) footsteps, those who embrace the darkness follow in Satan's (ego's) footsteps.
You belong to your father, the devil, and you want to carry out your father’s desires. He was a murderer from the beginning, not holding to the truth, for there is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks his native language, for he is a liar and the father of lies.

Why is it that god (christian god of the old testament) commits such evils while lucifer/satan does nothing but "tempt"?
lets see a few examples of the horrible things god does and see if anyone can find something the devil did that is even on par.
Isaiah 13:15-18: Anyone who is captured will be run through with a sword. Their little children will be dashed to death right before their eyes. Their homes will be sacked and their wives raped by the attacking hordes. For I will stir up the Medes against Babylon, and no amount of silver or gold will buy them off. The attacking armies will shoot down the young people with arrows. They will have no mercy on helpless babies and will show no compassion for the children
wow! pretty sick and twisted for a divine being!!!
2 Kings 2:23-24: The prophet Elisha, was being picked on by some young boys from the city because of his bald head. The prophet turned around and cursed them in the Lords name. Then, two female bears came out of the woods and killed forty-two of them. You would think that God could understand that sometimes the youthful make childish jokes. Calling someone “bald head” is far from being worthy of death.
Exodus 12:29: God killed, intentionally, every first-born child of every family in Egypt, simply because he was upset at the Pharaoh. And god caused the Pharaoh’s actions in the first place. Since when is it appropriate to murder children for their ruler’s forced action?
Scholars estimate this would account for tens of thousands based on the population of Egyptians that were not Jewish.
1 Kings 20:35-36: Meanwhile, the LORD instructed one of the group of prophets to say to another man, "Strike me!" But the man refused to strike the prophet. Then the prophet told him, "Because you have not obeyed the voice of the LORD, a lion will kill you as soon as you leave me." And sure enough, when he had gone, a lion attacked and killed him.
What did God get bored or something?
Well now does anybody have any scripture showing lucifer running around committing such evils?
If so post them below.
How can you people worship such an evil entity? Obviously the threat of eternal hellfire is enough to keep you from seeing the evil your god is all about.
Kind of like how a certain dictator started committing horrid evils and the population just cosigned it. Letting a large amount of their population get sent to a dark place to be tortured and gassed. Just because they were of jewish descent and had different beliefs.
They were sacrificing and killing thousands and thousands of people in warfare, had they continued and not gotten put down things could have gotten worse for the world.
What exactly did god killing Egyptians change? You see the world today? That should give you a clear answer.

Venus is the brightest point of light in the darkness of the night sky, so why not? A bright light among the darkness of this world? Sounds like Jesus to me.
Now their bible is the #1 most well known book in the world and their God is mentioned on the worlds reserve currency "in God we trust".
2 Corinthians 4
4 Satan, who is the god of this world, has blinded the minds of those who don’t believe. They are unable to see the glorious light of the Good News. They don’t understand this message about the glory of Christ, who is the exact likeness of God.
1 Timothy 6
10 For the love of money is a root of all kinds of evil. Some people, eager for money, have wandered from the faith and pierced themselves with many griefs.
