Also, The Washington Post and Newsweek featured a conversation on the same topic in its March 25, 2009 online issue of On Faith:

And, yes… I believe that the devil — also known as Satan, Lucifer and Beelzebub — does exist. Really. And that the devil’s works are plainly evident in the world.

According to scripture, Jesus Christ came to destroy the works of Satan (I John 3:8). To deny the existence of the devil is to deny the work of the Christ.
