I quickly contemplated and what I don't quite understand is the fact why Satan was able to rebel. Angels weren't given free will, or so some believe. If this fact were true then this would mean God wished/allowed it to occur. This makes it sound like God was using him (Satan) as an example, but why would he need to create an example to a being that he had complete control over... I see a tremendous contradiction here. Unless you say it's an example for us. This would mean that the rebellion occured while man was alive... that's a strange aspect to grasp.
