Question:When God created the angels, were the angels given a choice to follow Him? Satan was once an angel, but he rebeled. Are angels still given a choice? I thought human beings were the only ones to have choices?
"For if God did not spare the angels who sinned, but cast them down to hell and delivered them into chains of darkness, to be reserved for judgment" (II Peter 2:4).
"And the angels who did not keep their proper domain, but left their own abode, He has reserved in everlasting chains under darkness for the judgment of the great day" (Jude 6).
Since sin is transgressing the law (I John 3:4), it is clear that angels do have free choice.
