William lane Craig recently affirmed the view that God loves the devil. I believe I mentioned this is a mistake in part because I don’t believe that God loves every possible being. In additiion, there is a scriptural reason to doubt God loves Satan. God hates sin. John 8:44 claims that the devil lies because of his own nature. I take this to mean that the devil’s nature is entirely evil. If this is correct and God cannit love evil. He cannot love the devil.
