If you study pretty much any document on angels, you'll discover that they have only the drive to please God. And to do His work.
If angels didn't have free will there could have been no rebellion. Spirtually they are much more powerful than us. Two angels were sent to Sodom,
they appeared as humans and they destroyed the city.
Creation is given to only those with the power of life and death. And to create, one must give it life. Satan does NOT have that power. He only has
the power to destroy. This is very biblical. And satan and his fallen angels do not have this ability.
Yes.. but evil is not a created thing. It is not even a thing at all but the lack of something. So by your definition to "create" evil all he really
does is destroy good. He tempts a pastor into a an adulterous relationship. The pastor fails and fall for it by giving into his lust. Did he create
an adullter well yes... but he did it by destroying a faithful marriage. Make sense?
I'm including an article you might find interesting. I'm not a Christian anymore, but for the sake of this entire thread, I'm using scripture to
show you things:
I looked it over... on the surface it seems pretty good. However fear is not always bad. It protects us from harm. It is good to fear being hit by a
car. It is good to fear sin.
Fear of the Lord is actually a good thing.
"And he said to man, 'The fear of the Lord—that is wisdom, and to shun evil is understanding.' "Job 28:27-28
"The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom; all who follow his precepts have good understanding." Psalm 111:10
Some times faith means proceeding in spite of fear. If there were no fear then what would courage mean? Fear isn't evil unless you are controlled by
