Most Christians were taught that satan rebelled against God…
some say, he wanted to overthrow God and take his place. Others say he was envious of man and now wants us all to perish in hell.
Most skeptics view this as almost “comic book like”, especially the first theological view. How can a someone who knows/sees an infinite being who created him ever come up with the idea that he can somewhat “kill him” for his throne?
It got me wondering if it possible that satan’s way of waging war with God is by attacking him on a political/philosophical way.
We Christians know God as completely perfect yet this can be viewed as philosophically disputable.
In where satan wants to show God that he actually made a mistake… how? by showing how much his creation was a botch. If he never created us (and even satan himself) would there be evils such as the Holocaust, 9/11, child sacrificing, random serial killers and rapists, poverty, etc? Hence raising a political argument against God’s principles and the whole image of “Perfect” being a factual attribute.
God will always be “perfect”, there is no one who can ever be equal to his level of power, wisdom, and righteousness.
However, as a creator did he make a mistake in creating us (and satan)… we all know he will come again, and his kingdom will have no end (as the Apostles Creed says) but, he isn’t winning it all because a few of his creations are still going to hell.
I’m not raising doubts on God, just my thoughts on how satan’s war may be.
This is not an actual theological view…
