Hello, First of all I’d like to apologize for my english cause I’m brazilian and I don’t speak english very well.
I was talking to a friend, and I didn’t know how to answer this question, so I would like to ask anyone here who understands better of theology than me.
He asked: “I think it is okay to believe that God and the Angels are hidden, because of the question of free-will, and God wants us to freely believe on him and God wants us to believe on him by faith and so on… It is understandable that God is hidden. But what about the demons? Why demons don’t reveal themselves to the world? I mean, making miracles, making more demonic possessions and so on? The main characteristic of demons is that they are egocentric and proud, so it is likely to believe that some of them would want to rebel themselves and want to “cause” in this world, so why the demons don’t reveal themselves to the world? I mean making more possessions, or even possessing great leaders and so on? They would have all reasons to explicit show themselves to the world and interferring the free-will of people. Why demons don’t publicy reveal themselves and ruin this free-will plan of God?”
So I didn’t know how to answer that, the best answer that came in my mind is that Demons would like us to disbelieve on them better than to believe, so what do you have to say to help me guys? ;/
