A Theological Paradox



This sentiment was first published on Facebook, but I want to include it here. The question of how Lucifer was able to rebel, given that he was an angel and therefore did not possess the free will required for an act of rebellion, remains the fundamental flaw of the entire Biblical story.


A Theological Paradox

The entire Christian religion is based on a story with a deeply flawed premise: the concept of an angel rebellion. By definition, angels do not have free will. That’s what they were supposed to be rebelling about, which makes zero sense if you think about it. The idea of an “angel rebellion” is as absurd as that of a toaster rebellion. An act of rebellion requires free will, which angels-and toasters-canonically do not have. This is the theological paradox that confounded my father.
