Seems like God was doing more anger killing in the Bible than the Devil. Therefore, why does God call Satan the destroyer and murderer if God himself was doing more killing than the Devil?

I can't think of a passage that says that satan ever killed anybody. Of course he's just a mythological being like God anyway so they couldn't actually kill anyone.

Oh wait it's just a fairy tale

Or, for that matter, that there's even a Devil in the Bible.

In all honestly, I cannot think of a single specific incident in the Bible where Satan or the Devil is specifically responsible for killing anyone. There are plenty of vague generalities about the Devil, death and destruction, but nothing specific.

In light of that, I wonder if God and the Devil are the same entities in the Bible. In other words, the Devil being the alter-ego of God. Afterall, the bible does say that Satan was cast-down or thrown out of heaven.

Didn't "god" allow "satan" to kill off Job's family and animals? Apparently god really enjoys shedding blood. But remember, he DID spare all the hot young virgins for the guys to do with as they please. What a guy!
