The angels never gave me much of a problem: they were swayed by the most persuasive creature ever made. Voice like a church pipe organ, charismatic as the sun, beauty beyond comparison--- kind of man woman would have wanted to be with and guys would want to be like.
The problem I did have was how could Lucifer himself have made such a boneheaded decision. He was the guard closest to God's glory, with the most access to seeing Him as He is. Stopping there, one might think the issue was with God: somehow this magnificent creature detected some weakness in the Creator no one else could see.
However, we find that the reason Lucifer became Satan was because of pride, not some unknown or undisclosed knowledge which only he could have discovered. Instead of seeing things as they are, i.e., according to reality, he became blinded by his "own" beauty, his "own" magnificence.
He still is.
