Another Small Group Question

Our small group questions are still ringing in my mind - here's another that really peaked my interest.......... Did God create "evil" if He created everything? Does God love Satan? Meaning, isn't God suppose to love everyone no matter what - so does that apply to Satan? There's something to wrap your brain around and think about for awhile.

  1. St. Augustine actually discusses this at great length. It has been many years since I read the text, but the general idea is that you cannot have one extreme without the other. You'd never know true joy if you hadn't experienced sadness, anxiety, and pain to compare it to. By that philosophy, Augustine argues that in order for there to be an absolute Good, there must also be true evil. Therefore, Satan and hell are necessary evils (do pardon the pun!).
