Kipple, I'm just going to give you my opinion and then just wait for the backlash (which I will not argue about) because it is just an opinion. God loves all of his children...all of them and wants them to be saved. However, Satan was never one of his children. His name was Lucifer and the prettiest angel of all. However, he began to think he was bigger and better than God so God banished him from heaven and from that time on Satan began his plan to turn God's people against him. And he and his demons work to that that everyday to God's children. That is why there is so much evil in the world. However, God has already sentenced Satan to an eternal death in hell after the judgment day comes. So as far as loving everyone, he does love all of his children; but, as I said, Satan was never one of His children.
In my opinion, yes, God does love the devil. Everyone has a choice, and it doesn't matter what choices we make, God still loves us. The ark angel, Lucifer, made the choice to turn bad, thinking he was better than God, and look where that got him, he became Satan, yet God still loves him, and I believe that if Satan were to realize what he had done, and ask for forgiveness, then God would forgive him...but God knows that Satan will never do this, because he is too corrupted with evil, which is why it's already predicted in Revelation what will happen in the end times, for if God knew that Satan would repent, what would be the point in writing that final book? Hope this helped :)
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 5:8); the evil one (Matthew 6:13); the father of lies and a murderer (John 8:44); the accuser of God?s people (Revelation 12:10); the tempter (1 Thessalonians 3:5); proud, wicked and violent (Isaiah 14:12-15); a deceiver (Acts 13:10); a schemer (Ephesians 6:11); a thief (Luke 8:12); and many more evil things. He is, in fact, everything that God hates. The heart of Satan is fixed and confirmed in his hatred of God, his judgment is final, and his destruction is sure. Revelation 20 describes God?s future plan for Satan, and love for Satan has no part in it.http://www.gotquestions.org/does-God-love-Satan.html
God’s chief enemy is Satan the Devil. He is a spirit creature who rebelled against Jehovah. Satan continues to fight against God and causes great trouble for humans. Satan is evil. He is a liar and a murderer.—John 8:44
I think that one of the greatest sadness God experienced occurred when Lucifer (Satan) rebelled and was cast out of heaven. In the Doctrine & Covenants (Mormon scripture) it states that when this occurred "the heavens wept over him". I think that a father who has and loves a special son who rejects him and all he values and turns to behavior that is terribly destructive to not only himself but also to his siblings can understand this pain. In referring to the statement of Satan and his follower's punishment being as a "lake of fire and brimstone," Joseph Smith said that "a man is his own tormentor and his own condemner.... The torment of disappointment in the mind of man is as exquisite as a lake burning with fire and brimstone." I think that God's punishment is permitting a person to receive the consequences of behavior. This consequence (pain) is not imposed externally but comes from within when one sees "oh what have I lost?"
