One Simple Rule

Q. Why did God not judge Satan when he first sinned ? It wasn’t man’s sin. As a result of God not doing that Satan was allowed to tempt mankind, who failed. Now multiplied millions will plunge into Hell. I do not understand. Thanks.

A. You’re giving Satan too much credit.  He was the tempter, it’s true, but Adam and Eve made the choice to disobey the one rule God gave them.  Multiplied millions may plunge into hell, as you say.  But every one of them will have made the choice to disobey the one rule God gave us as well.

Then they asked Him, “What must we do to do the works God requires?”

He replied, “The work of God is this: to believe in the one He has sent (John 6:28-29).

They will have chosen not to believe in Him, and His death is the only remedy God has provided for our sins.

Jesus said, “I am the way, the truth, and the life.  No one comes to the Father but through Me (John 14:6).
