     Where did the iniquity in Satan come from?...How then can God say that it was suddenly found in Satan. God had to put it there when he create Satan. Right?

     You seem to assume that 'iniquity' is some sort of a tangible 'thing' that God has to create.  Why can't it just be described as a certain kind of choice made by a free being?  You also seem to assume that a being with no reasons external to herself to sin would never sin, but you don't give any justification for this.  It seems to me that human beings commit wrongful acts all the time even though there doesn't seem to be any reason for them to do so.  Why do we even have a category of crime in our society called 'white collar crime'?  We have professionals in bankers and lawyers who seem to have more than they ever need and yet there is always the possibility that they will be greedy and want more.  Adam and Eve apparently had all of there needs adequately cared for in the garden, but why does that guarantee they would never sin?

It sounds like Satan wanted equality with God or a least a chance to compete with him.

God seems to run a tyranny and that is why he banished Satan.

When we are talking about God as a monotheistic entity, usually it is in the context of a Greatest Concievable Being. You are making it sound as if the GCB wanting to stay the GCB makes him/her/it a tyrant. Furthermore, if the GCB were to give up the seat, would the later GCB really be the GCB, as it would be greater to begin as the GCB before time began than later?
