Here’s my response to this fun little photo and comment early this morning:
The caption read:
Why would god create the devil or even let the devil live ?
Here’s my short answer:
Satan and the fallen angels were not created by accident; rather, they were intentionally created to fulfill a purpose in the fall of Man and development of humanity.
God created light and darkness; good and evil to serve His purposes and plans for creating His children.
God was not surprised when Adam sinned after being tempted by Eve who was tempted by Satan; rather, God foreknew Adam would sin and allowed Adam to do so…
So God (Jesus) could give His life in covenant to pay for the sins of humanity and thus provide a portion of humanity with the opportunity to become the sons and daughters of God.
This is a nutshell or elementary understanding for a much broader scope of God’s amazing plan to create eternal and god-like sons and daughters of God.
These are simple and basic elements forwarded in the Bible.
If a person cannot see beyond this simple equation in God’s Word it make sense this same person would ask a question based on such limited understanding of God’s overall plan for us.
