Summing Up: Satan as a Functional Theodicy?

Dear Reader,
I'm wrapping up this series on Satan as a Functional Theodicy. In this series I tried to reflect on how we think about Satan. My argument has been that Satan tends to function as a theodicy in the minds of many religious believers. I've cited theological, historical, anecdotal, and empirical evidence for this position. Below lists the relevant posts in order. I appreciate all those who participated (and are sill participating!) in the discussion. Hope you found the series interesting.
