Angels, God, Satan, and Demons. What are these things we are taught about growing up? Are angels real? If they are real where do they come from? Is Satan really an angel? If satan is an angel why did god kick him out of heaven? How evil is Satan? If god created Satan as his angel does that mean god created evil? If God did create evil then can God and evil be reconciled? Is god really the all might god? In this essay I am going to try to answer all of these questions and describe why god and evil cannot and will not ever be reconciled.

The first topic I am going to hit on is if Satan was really one of god's angels. According to Amy Miller,

Lucifer is one of three archangels mentioned in Scripture. He was created by God just as all angels were, but his role was different from the other angelic hosts. Lucifer was referred to as the 'covering angel.' Just as the cherubim covered the mercy seat of the Ark of the Covenant, Lucifer was established by God to be the angel of worship, one whose ministry surrounded the heart of heaven. Lucifer was created to dwell eternally in the throne room of heaven, in the very presence of God (Ezekiel 28:14).

Amy Miller describes Satan as one of the most important angels to god. He was one of the only angels who were perfect enough to dwell in the presents of god. He was perfect in every way. He was so perfect he started to become prideful and wanted more than he already had. He wanted to be worshiped by everyone like god was. This brings us to another question, why did god kick satan out of heaven? According to Eric Snow, "While still obedient Satan was placed on the earth with certain responsibilities. While on the planet Satan (and one third of the other angels) decided to rebel against God." When Satan went back up to heaven to try to take over it he and the other angels were kicked back out to earth. Satan and his evil angels tried two more times over a great time link but fail each time. Even though Satan wanted to take over heaven I do not believe it was evil that was in him to do it. I believe it was pride to be the almighty. So does this mean that God created evil? When being taught about god and satan I remember the story of adam and eve. There was nothing evil in the world that could touch them. Then eve ate the apple. So does that mean eve created evil?
