“Does God love Satan? Since we are to love our enemies, does that mean we should love Satan?”
No, God does not love Satan, and neither should we. God cannot love that which is evil and unholy, and Satan embodies all of that. He is the enemy (1 Peter 5:8Matthew 6:13 John 8:44 Revelation 12:10 1 Thessalonians 3:5 Isaiah 14:12-15 Acts 13:10 Ephesians 6:11 Luke 8:12
Jesus’ command that we love our enemies (Matthew 5:44
Since Satan is everything that is antithetical to the God we love, we cannot love Satan. If we loved Satan, we would be forced to hate God, because holiness is the opposite of sin.
God has already determined that there will be no forgiveness for Satan; we are the objects of God’s sacrificial love, shown on the cross. As God was lovingly redeeming mankind, He was putting Satan “to open shame” (Colossians 2:15
