comment Theology question: why hasn't God stopped Satan and his demons?
First, I wonder where this account comes from, where God is glad to have Satan around to give our lives a purpose (Scripture? any of the Church Fathers?). Second, given this account, it seems like Satan's original temptation of Adam and Eve was part of God's plan, rather than an unwanted intervention. Third, it's unclear how to reconcile any 'test' account with God's omniscience: an all-knowing God doesn't need to test us to see what we do.
