To the Heart with Father Pete

sand heart

Hello my friends! Several of you have asked me to address both personal & spiritual questions. Here are some questions and my answers to them. I invite more questions. Call me, write me or send questions to Diana for this bulletin article (d_hudock@yahoo.com). This article will also appear on our Facebook and Blog on our website.

Linda R. asks: If God is Love, does that mean that Satan is Hate?

Father Pete: Technically, Satan is a created spirit who chooses to hate because his pride is hurt. He and the other fallen angels became demons when they chose to oppose God by a permanent choice that they made. So, Satan and the demons hate God and us. Therefore, just as God is a pure being that is always engaged in the act of love, so Satan and the fallen angels are created beings constantly choosing pride and hatred.

                   Keep the questions coming!

                                               Love, Father Pete
