Why Didn't God Destroy Satan? This question was posted to me by a colleague. The only answer I could come up with is as follows: Satan is a Spirit. He was an angel and was created by God as a spirit. A spirirt cannot be destroyed. It is like energy. Energy can never be destroyed. That is why God never destroyed Satan, because a spirit cannot be destroyed. That is the reason why Satan will be bound after he is defeated and he will not be destroyed. I would like to get your input in this.
