the god flooded the world and killed millions of people and the devil disagreed with god and got kicked out and sent to hell which seems backwards to me

Welcome to Worthy Alduin's daughter.

It is backward and not in the bible. Where did you hear that fairy tale?

Actually this area is for welcomes. God sent the flood, but the people were already murdering each other at the time of the Flood (not unlike today). It is believed Lucifer was already thrown out of heaven when he tempted Adam and Eve in the Garden. He will one day be assigned to the Lake of Fire.

Basically, God created everything, it is His universe, He makes the rules, you do not have to like them, but that is the way it is. He then has the authority to define what is good, and what is evil. If we disagree with his pronouncements, then we are in error, it is that simple. God, is, by definition (God's declaration) good, and in fact God is the only thing that is wholly good by nature. The world, and mankind were created good, as was Satan. However, Satan rebelled against God, and in that chose to be not good, that is why he is evil. It is also why all of mankind is not good (Mark 10:18 No one is good except God alone.) because we have all rebelled against God. Of course no one is 100% evil,  but only God is 100% good.

If we take a can of white paint, and mix even a little black paint into it, it is no longer pure white, it is some shade of grey. Same with us, we are not purely good, we are a shade of grey, and not perfect.

When God flooded the earth, it was because of what the Earth (the world of mankind) had become:

Then the LORD saw that the wickedness of man was great on the earth, and that every intent of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually.

For God to destroy the wicked, to erase them, was a good thing to do. It was just and it was no more evil than taking an antibiotic is, to get rid of a disease. The flood was a cure for a world that had become so corrupt, that was in need of a good cleansing. It will happen again in the future, only next time by fire.

This is the time, to get right with God, stop rebelling against Him, and receive forgiveness for our sins, so that we may live with God forever, where everything will be good. That alternative, is not pleasant. 

Eventually there are two conditions, either being eternally with God and all that is good, or eternally separated from God, and all that is good. I know which I prefer, I am thankful that I will be with God, by His grace extended toward me, when I did not deserve it.

This grace is ours, once we accept by faith, that Jesus died on the cross to pay the penalty for our sins, and that He rose from the grave, in mastery over death. He gives to those who accept Him, that same gift, eternal life.

Yowm is correct, this area is for introductions and welcomes, there are other areas on the forums for discussions such as this.

Hello.  You should make a post in another area of this website/forum so you can get a lot of different views/perspectives.  there are a lot of people on this website that collectively have lots of knowledge about the bible and one can learn a lot on this website. 

Are you saved?  i cant really tell based on your two posts and your profile.

Interesting thing I'd like to point out. The word Evil should not be confused with the word "Wicked." Scratching your nails across a chalkboard is considered "Evil." Bad fruit are rotten and not good. Unholy means there is an absense of perfect holiness. You get the point.

The jews believe satan is the adversary of man, not the adversary of god.

Welcome to Worthy!

If you're saying that the devil was expelled from Heaven because he disagreed with the flood, that is completely non-Biblical.
