The question comes to Job (from the Book of Job, natch), “Where were you when I laid the foundation of the earth? … when the morning stars sang together and all the heavenly beings shouted for joy?” (NRSV) So going back to the point where I overheard that Lucifer was the creator of pain: that would make none of our woe from God, at all, wouldn’t it? One might think that though God is omnipotent, that His brightest angel would still have been a handful if he were to rebel and turn a third of the angels to his side. Suddenly you have heavenly (read: powerful) beings without any rules, grabbing for whatever power they can get their hands on, wreaking as much havoc as havoc can along the way. It would be a BIG DEAL. Because God is not the type to wave His hand and magically make things right again. He watched all 13.7 billion years pass before He came down to our sphere. There is a certain way He does everything (also we who serve Him). God is love, not magic.
