God created FREE WILL, because He has free will and he wanted to share that with another creation. He made the djinn, among whom was Lucifer, who was the proudest of them all. These beings were made of smokeless flame. Energy. Then God decided He wanted to create a being from a PHYSICAL material, and so He created Adam from the the wet earth. And then He commanded all of the angels and djinn to bow before Adam, His new creation.
Now, the angel have no free will, they are instruments of God’s perfect will. And so all of them bowed.
But amongst the djinn Lucifer came forth and in his pride he would not bow. And it was the first time anything had ever apposed God’s perfect will. But God gave FREE WILL to the djinn and mankind, and so He allows this will to be 100% free, for our God is true to his word.
But our God is also just. And so to appose God’s perfect will, which is 100% good and right, you have committed OTHER THAN God’s perfect will, which is 100% evil and wrong. You see, we are not robots, and God does not ask much or often of His creations of which he has granted free will. So then when God directly commands them to bow, they had better expect he means it, and it is with good reason.
For bringing the first EVIL into creation, now God curses Lucifer, henceforth to be known as satan, and a place called HELL is created. It is a place of absolute wrong and evil for those who CHOOSE that path of wrong and evil (AKA other than God’s will) with their 100% free will.
In his desperation, satan challenges God, telling him that man is evil and wicked like himself and he would like the opportunity to prove it before he burns in hell for all eternity.
For reasons known only to our wise God, he allowed satan this opportunity…
