    God is love, love is truth. Without any love, there is no truth.

    The truth of love.

    Wherein Jesus taught by word and action the truth of God and love.

    So, the answer is the obvious, one we all know: Love.

    Satan had no love in him.

    Hi Dreameroftheheart:

    Good statement. BUT, before His fall He was a very knowledgeable one of the spiritual world. When you read of His fall, Before it, He was considered what we would call, brilliant.

    That God was indeed in charge. Something that his minions have yet to accept.

    Satan, as a lower created angelic person, Lucifer, was not ALL knowing. He did not spiritually discern his own demise and fate.

    Genesis 3:15
    And I will put enmity Between you and the woman, And between your seed and her seed; He shall bruise you on the head, And you shall bruise him on the heel.”

    1 John 3:8
    the one who practices sin is of the devil; for the devil has sinned from the beginning. The Son of God appeared for this purpose, to destroy the works of the devil.

    Revelation 20:10
    And the devil who deceived them was thrown into the lake of fire and brimstone, where the beast and the false prophet are also; and they will be tormented day and night forever and ever.

    Satan had, as Aquinas would put it, inordinate self-love, aka "pride". This is a twisting of a God-created good: self-love, into an exaltation of the self above all else, even above truth because pride is willing to dominate and control that as well, for its own perceived benefit. In fact falsehood entered with Lucifer's fall; the first lie believed and adhered to was that he was equal to or superior to God. He loved self more than God.

    Jesus the Divine Messiah was Deity: Mission:

    1 John 3:8
    ....The Son of God appeared for this purpose, to destroy the works of the devil.

    This was the truth Satan was without
    !...the eternal plan of the TRI-UNE GOD to save the spirit of Man from eternal separation from God.

    He lacked the truth that no created being can ever be completely independent of God.

    To be independent of Him is simply not the nature of the relationship of the will of the creation to the will of the creator .

    He's God and we are not and we can never be God.

    Would that many who beat the drum for absolute free will would get the message Lucifer will eventually learn.
