My favorite story of how Lucifer fell from the side of God:
In the begenning there was god, god creates the heavens and the universe. Then god creates angels and tell the angels to love god and all his creations. Then god creates the earth, and then creates man and tells the angels in heaven to love man as you love me
For many angels they listened to god and obeyed his word to the absolute. For Lucifer and angels like him it was IMPOSSIBLE that they could conceive loving man as much as they loved god.
Because their love of god was stronger than their will to submit to god's word they were cast out of heaven. And so began the eternity of torment.
The opposite of love is not hate, but indifference.
Further, I like to parrellel the angels who submit to god's word to those of muslim faith. While christians and muslims both share similar stories in the old testament in their teachings, stories like Abraham sacrificing his son to god are told completely different. In the Muslim books the story emphasises Abrahams submission to god's absolute word, while the christian version emphasizes the conflict of love for a son vs. the love of god.
So for all those crazy southern baptists telling you to love god with all your heart or you will go to hell you can look them square in they eye and spit on them for me..
