Many good people throughout history were misunderstood; it is sometimes even considered a mark of greatness. Could one also apply this to Satan? As, in Christ, we are moved to love our enemies (Matthew 5:44), I do not doubt that any Christian thinker, theologian, or apologist has at some point asked (or been asked), "What if Satan is actually a good guy but just misunderstood?"

“To say that one waits a lifetime for his soulmate to come around is a paradox. People eventually get sick of waiting, take a chance on someone, and by the art of commitment become soulmates, which takes a lifetime to perfect.”
Criss Jami, Venus in Arms

“Just because something isn't a lie does not mean that it isn't deceptive. A liar knows that he is a liar, but one who speaks mere portions of truth in order to deceive is a craftsman of destruction.”
Criss Jami

“Grudges are for those who insist that they are owed something; forgiveness, however, is for those who are substantial enough to move on.”
Criss Jami, Salomé: In Every Inch In Every Mile

“Everyone has their own ways of expression. I believe we all have a lot to say, but finding ways to say it is more than half the battle.”
Criss Jami, Salomé: In Every Inch In Every Mile

“What is a genius? A person who demands little to nothing from others, but is often found extremely difficult to have around.”
Criss Jami, Killosophy

“The first ingredient to being wrong is to claim that you are right. Geniuses have a knack for raising new questions. Hence by the public they are either admired for their creativity or, even more commonly so, detested for disturbing the daily peace of mind.”
Criss Jami, Killosophy

“In order to share one's true brilliance one initially has to risk looking like a fool: genius is like a wheel that spins so fast, it at first glance appears to be sitting still.”
Criss Jami, Venus in Arms

“Grudges are for those who insist that they are owed something; forgiveness, however, is for those who are substantial enough to move on.”
Criss Jami, Salomé: In Every Inch In Every Mile
