Did You Know A fact from this article appeared on Wikipedia's Main Page in the "Did you know?" column on February 23, 2018.
The text of the entry was: Did you know ... that Satan frequently appeared as a comic relief figure in late medieval mystery plays, in which he "frolicked, fell, and farted in the background"?
Current status: Good article

Entirely Untrue Sentence[edit]

The very first sentence in the article states...

Satan,[a] also known as the Devil,[b] is an entity in the Abrahamic religions that seduces humans into sin or falsehood.

That sentence is entirely untrue. Satan (correctly, "The Satan", meaning "The Adversary") was a holy (good) angel, who had NOT fallen from grace, but served God as his angel who placed adversity in people's lives in order to test their faith and to give them difficulties by which they could strengthen their faith. One only has to read the Book of Job (and I am citing The Book of Job in support of my claim here) to know this is the true concept behind The Satan. Furthermore, The Satan was NOT known as The Devil in the Abrahamic religions.
