People have asked the question about why God doesn't just destroy Satan and stop evil if He's so powerful, and it seems there is some truth to the common answer: "Because He is merciful and even the demons of Hell and Satan himself are not past His love." This explains how God does not let jealousy or envy get in the way of His work and love for humanity; if God was to angrily retaliate by destroying Satan just because Satan and his followers are jealous or envious of God's power, then it would just tarnish God's reputation by showing Him as immature and abusing His powers, hence letting the Devil win. However, if the Devil and his followers were trying to destroy society at the "end of days," then God will have a good reason to put Satan down if doing so could save humanity. Please let me know your opinions. Thank you.
