ELI5: Explain Like I'm 5


The devil is something people sometimes talk about in stories. It's like a bad guy, kind of like a monster, but different. The devil is usually someone or something that makes bad things happen or tries to hurt people by tricking them or making them do bad things. People who believe in the devil usually think that the devil is a supernatural being, like a powerful evil spirit, who has special powers and wants to use them to make people do bad things.
