Can Satan be forgiven?

After I place that last qustion on why did God not destory Satan, A new qustion just pop into my head.



Can Satan ever be forgiven for what he has done and be allowed back into heaven?

I think he's beyond the point of ever thinking he could even want it, but Universalists would probably think so.

Satan cannot be killed because God created him immortal.

Satan and the angels do not get the same right to be forgiven as humans do.

Angels were created before humans and are slightly superior to humans. But they also are not bound by the same expectations as humans because of it.

Does that mean God is unwilling or unable to forgive Satan?

Well, Satan would have to ask for forgiveness first. That would require him overcoming his pride, which I doubt would happen. To quote the father of lies: "It is better to reign in hell than to serve in heaven." (not sure where this this in scripture)

That's not from scripture, it's from Milton's "Paradise Lost". It's amazing how many people get them mixed up.

It didn't. Milton wrote that.

The only two things I can think of of the Devil being forgiven is Origen's doctrine of apocatastasis and the religion of Yezidism.
