Was God creating Satan a good idea?

Was God creating Satan a good idea?

Eden and creation seemed to be going along quite well for God and man until Satan was cast into Eden by God. God would have been in charge of who he allowed into the Garden of Eden. After all, God would have kept a firm control of who entered his new day care so as to insure the wellbeing of Adam and Eve.

Being all knowing, God already knew that Satan, with God’s own power of deception, would successfully tempt Eve to eat of the tree of all possible knowledge.

It almost seems as if God wanted us to and planned for us to fail. Perhaps that is why the Church called Adams sin a happy fault and necessary sin.

Christian dogma, the opposite of Jewish dogma, has Satan as God’s nemesis and arch rival for the souls of mankind. God’s foreknowledge would have told him that Satan would cause him to condemn the vast majority of his beloved souls to hell and death and thus play into Satan’s hands. This to me seems like God creating a huge amount of grief for himself and mankind, unless God truly wanted man to fail, --- and sin was a happy fault and necessary sin as the Church says.

Did Adam and Eve actually do what God really wanted them to do, and was God creating Satan a good idea?

We are told by the Church and scriptures to emulate God.

Should all parents do as God did and create a situation of failure for their children so as to insure that they too have the happy fault and necessary sin that makes them fail?

Why was it important for God to insure that we failed?

ALL alleged Supernatural God(s) are 100% human devised.

The YLT & EMPHATIC DIAGLOTT bibles make NO mention of a Satan in their narratives!

Satan was not created by God, in the spiritual books, it is openly mentioned that he was the most pious and trustworthy servant to the God. But by the creation of Man, he was in anger and rage of being disappointed by the Man. When God asked the whole of His creation to down their heads to the Man, the Satan refused to do that which turned him into the forbidden one.

For starters, Satan is depicted as a female.
Just google Michelangelo's expulsion or fall painting. Note the female breasts on Satan.

The bible says that evil was found in Satan and a third of the heavenly hosts.

That evil came from God himself as man had yet to be created.

Yet the bible and dogma blame an for evil.

I see it as Satan wanting equality in heaven and God refusing to end his tyranny over her and the rest of the heavenly hosts.
