Satan had good reason for rebelling against God.
Some say Satan rebelled against God because God wanted him to bow to God's creation, humans. However, for some unknown reason, God did not crush the rebellion, one that also took a third of angels, but instead lets it ride to a climatic end. Anyway, what might be some other reasons he rebelled and, as with all of it, did have a good case. Note, though, of course, God's position probably revolves around the fact Satan became prideful, being the head musician and probably the most important angel.

Each to Their Own

I think as per the bible god played his role on creating someone who is opposing his plan. It was necessary for him to do that. And that's how he is keeping in check with the world. I think it'd be reasonable to understand that he did what was supposed to be. I mean anyone with god's plan was about to do the same as well.

I agree with you that it's all about keeping to the plan of God using Satan to control the ways of the world. If there is no Satan, I bet that there would have been disobedience in the world, but with the evil and good, we see reasons we should do good.

I agree

In life, you should have someone who tells you that you have gone wrong. Satan stood his ground and told God what he thought was right. It doesnt matter who was wrong or right. But the lesson we draw from this is that, however good our plans are, there is another side of the coin. We need to allow the views of the opposing side also to be heard. That way, you will be able to make it even a better idea. God did not want anybody to oppose his ideals. Thus threw his only opposer, the only one who stood for what he thought was right. Remember Lucifer was God's favourite.

Yes

It's all a myth to me, but I agree that in this story the devil did have his reasons which is what makes the story as good as it is. I think if it were too black and white it becomes boring and this way it becomes more relevant to society and it's probably why it was written this way. I think people who see things in black and white are lying to themselves because the world is full of gray areas.

What is the proof?

Who knows whether this is true or a myth? There is never a good reason to rebel unnecessarily for anything, but where there is good, evil must exist too.

This is why the concept of humans and angels being perfect is flawed, because we are all capable of being seduced by temptation.

I disagree!

There are no good reasons why to betray someone. Satan had no good reason to do so, and I see this in the real life...when we trust someone so hard and make it our best friend or the most trusted person from work, etc these individuals are the first who will betray us because they are full of envy and they think they are leaving in our shadow!

You can't tell

I won't agree with you, because one thing is certain in the universe, a servant must obey his master, but as some point in time, he would digress from obedient. But this is different from being created and you rebel against your creator, no reason will ever give you the right to rebel against someone who created you. Because without him, you're nothing. And devil was a proud nigga, nigga should have calmed the fuck down.

He should have calmed down, but he didn't so and that was the reason God had to use force on him. If he allowed the disobedience to continue, God might have lost his powers.

No

I don't believe that he has. And even uf he has a reason its not acceptable fornhim to be a bad. Everyone has their own reason, everyone is being bad sometimes but not like him. He is full of anger,full of a bad thing in his life. Theres no such a thing that he has a reason for doing it. And Its unacceptable.

Speaking from a non-christian perspective, many of tenets of the religion are amoral, at best, and outright incompatible with a modern sense of ethics. Abrahamic theology began in an age when no one knew about microbes, electromagnetic theory, ecological systems and how they play out over time. They were drawing goofy conclusions about the natural world due to having a very limited data set. The point in bringing this up is to demonstrate that we have to be careful when we make assumptions about the motives of characters in Abrahamic mythology. It's entirely too easy to project our own, very different biases onto the collected body of Semitic writings, which leads us to very different understandings about the messages the ancients were trying to communicate.

Satan has purely rebel against God. It's not he will bow down to God's creation but he didn't bow to God himself who created him. He wanted to turn God himself and to overcome his creator which is a blasphemy against God. Since God loves Satan so much despite of his rebellion, God gave him a kingdom which is the so-called "Hell" since he wanted to become God and gave him servants and armies which are former angels of God who are on the side of Satan. Since then, they are now called the fallen angels, fall from heaven into the depths of hell.

In the story as told by our religion teachers in grade school, Satan wanted to be god himself and that he had plans of destroying God so he will be alone who will be the most powerful. But to be honest, I think that story is not exactly what happened. It is just a euphemism or a metaphor of sorts to make people understand that there is good and there is bad and that people should be on the good side.

Satan has no genuine reason to rebel against his creator. How can a creature dictate what to do to his creator? How can a creature think of raising his throne beyond that of his creator without falling? What a pity! God beautifully made him and endowed him with all he would need to worship Him. What an awesome God! He was not contempt with all these. God even called him the bright morning star. So, what could constitute rebellion in his heart against his creator if not that he was destined to perish? There is no cause for rebellion in the heart of a creature against his creator.

I don't know anything about this. There are a lot of different stories about what really happened in heaven. I've understood that Lucifer (Satan) was the most beautiful angel and he wanted to be like God so he revealed himself to God and God condemned Lucifer so he was exiled from heaven and he created hell.

Honestly, I always tend to hurt susceptible people when it comes to religion, but in my opinion that can be true. Let's face it, God is not an angry one according to religion, but one of forgiveness and caring, then how this expelling thing happened. In some way, I believe all the religious stories have been manipulated by man, so we don't know for sure what was the main fight about, or if there was a fight. But no one is going to rebel against God without any good reason, I mean is God who he was fighting with right?. Unfortunately, we only have this version of the matter, I respect all the opinions, just exposed mine and I think I have a point here.

If we believe in bible, and the bible would only our basis, then we should believe that the rebellion satan really happened because it is written in the bible. If we don't believe in bible's teaching, what would be our basis?

At the heart of the controversy is man's interpretation. Something happened that caused something else to happen but truly no one in today's existence knew what exactly happened, or what is happening right now as a result! This leaves lots open to suspicion and twisted beliefs. Yet here we are and there is so much spirituality and potential for new discoveries that we cannot help but acknowledge the signs and contribute in some way. We just have to keep our eyes and hearts open as we ourselves are spiritual vessels. Somewhere within our timeless existence is the truth behind all that has happened as we are apart of this great creation and all that is yet to come.

I have to say that I don't really know what transpired in heaven that made God chase Satan down to the lower heavens. So, I wouldn't want to say much on that matter and whatever the reason Satan had to rebel against God is not truly important for that is a sign of disloyalty to a higher authority.

Same here. I don't really know how it all happened because I am an atheist but I doubt that the Satan had a good reason for rebelling against God. I mean, Satan is supposed to be evil, right? So, he wouldn't need any good or valid reasons to oppose to something that's greater and purer than him. That's just how I see it.

I'm an atheist too and religion easily talks about good or evil like they're something absolute. Not everything is black and white, the way religion always puts it like satan is evil and God is good doesn't really sound right. I don't believe in any of this, but too many things about religion don't sound right and that's one of the many reasons I became an atheist.

True. We really don't know what happened that time so we cannot say anything. That's why there is belief. It's up to what you believe, no one can say if you are right or wrong. As for me, all I know is Satan disobeyed God and wanted to be God himself.

As a Christian, I don't think this version of your story is true and Satan has no reason whatsoever to disobey God.Do you have any reason to disobey our parents.You must always obey.For Satan, he was proud to even obey God not just humans which I have not read this anywhere in the bible.

Satan must not have rebelled against God. I think that he couldn't accept the fact that God was superior to him and he wanted to take God's place. Lucifer was definitely powerful and God's favorite but he wanted something more and unfortunately his rebellion got him out of heaven.

I don't know much about this situation with Satan's fall from grace. Maybe he could have gotten forgiveness from God if he wanted it. We all have times we have done things that God wouldn't want, if that is something you believe in. As the bumper sticker goes, Christians aren't perfect, just forgiven.

Satan had no good reason to rebel against God. God is always right in his doing and action, when God tells you to do something and you refuse and you become proud like Satan then you should be ready to face the consequences.

People tend to look at things from a narrow-minded point of view. What if Satan had to "rebel" (In fact I don't think that it was a rebellion at all, more like an agreement) To be an outcast in order to tempt and test men so they can evolve and reach a higher existence?

Satan rebelled against God's authoritarianism. Your father created you does this mean, you will have to accept your father's every order, follow his entire rules? You are your father's creation, does this mean, you don't have an independent existence, don't you have a free will. Just kidding.

There was no valid reason to revolt against God.

Well for starters, I don't believe any of this so I'm not going to be answering this from a devout Christian perspective, by any means. However, as a sensible person with an intact moral compass, I can give the answer from the perspective of a rational human being. For one thing, I don't appreciate authoritarianism or totalitarianism in any form. My father may have created me but I will not kneel to him if I feel he has given me reason to not respect him. If you are a loving and compassionate God/father then I expect you to be side by side and one with the people your rule over. If you demand someone bend their knees and try to be above all, then you're asking for rebellion.

I think we have to understand that everything is a god's plan. And even the role of satan was pre planned by god. So that's why the satan can't be killed. Not because it can't be possible. But more or less like it is the role given to him by god. And he is meant to be taken and worked on. That's something many people should be learning about and understanding. That is what the role of god is all about there as well.

If you were created by God to perform certain functions, do you have the right to question your Creator's decisions, actions, or preferences? Satan was a mere creature who thought that he can overthrow God and become God himself. He was a proud angel who did not want to be a mere follower. He did not like the idea of having a Messiah and would not vow to Jesus Christ. If there was reason to rebel against God, the entire heavenly hosts would have rebelled against Him. Yet only Satan and a small band of angels he managed to deceive rebelled against God.

Satan has no tenable excuse at all to rebel against God, his maker. How could an ordinary creature rebel against his creator? He nursed some thoughts right in his heart. He had some plans against his maker which included raising his own throne above that of God, wanting to be like the most high God, and so on. Upon these evil thoughts, the Lord pronounced His fierce judgement on him, downgrading him to the bottomless pit. God prepared a burning lake where he will spend eternity. He had an arrogant thought against the Almighty God that resulted to his demotion and destruction.

I've always felt Satan was just interested in breaking off from the family and becoming his own man or - whatever. He didn't want to work for God his whole life. Much like most people don't want to work for one boss their whole life. Now that idea of going his own direction resulted in a war in heaven and a lot of chaos and death. So I guess because God won, he couldn't trust that Satan wouldn't regroup and try again. So he cast him and his followers down into the pit. A wise preventive/protective measure.

I was schooled in a Catholic academy and my take on Satan is that he is the alter ego of God. He was also a creation of God and he was allowed to be evil just so there will be a variety. It’s just like saying how can you be beautiful when there is no ugly? White becomes white because there is black. In that sense, Satan is the personification of the opposite of the goodness and his rebellion or whatever it is may have been a machination of God also.

I haven't clearly gone through the bible about this. But as far as I know, Lucifer was perfect in beauty, a mighty angelic guardian. But his heart became filled with envy. He coveted what God had granted His son. Lucifer wanted to honor and praise. He wanted to be worshipped.

(Please don't get me wrong or get offended by what I'm about to comment) If God created everything, then he or she obviously created Evil. Why? How do we know it's not the other way round? If there's a God and he's so great, why so many children and innocent people suffers the most? Why the weaker and the fragile can't survive? Have you ever wonder... that maybe, we could be the creation of evil instead and the rejects of God? Personally, the older I get, the less I know. Everything I've learned and experienced in my life, makes no sense to me know and feels more like my whole life's just an illusion. Very difficult for me to explain in writing. I'm not a good writer and my spelling or grammar should be ignored.

I personally believe that all of this is just a story written by some creative folks a very long time ago. Every good story needs a villain, so they wrote one in, and named it Satan.
