Was Satan a former angel but was banished by God for doing something evil?
yes can be very questionable. The only reference I've found about someone falling from Heaven is in Isaiah 14:12. I say someone because it doesn't specifically say that Lucifer is or was an angel. The idea of satan could simply be a human concept based on perception of what is good or evil. What one belief says is good may be considered evil by another belief. This is the whole problem with religion. No single doctrine holds true for all beliefs except one: Jesus, who is revered as the son of God by Christian beliefs and a wise prophet by others said that we are to love one another as we love ourselves. Though Jesus is an excellent focal point for this most essential of human needs it is not a necessary component. Even an atheist can show love to his/her fellow humans.
