Angels are Moral Beings

Angels are moral beings. What I mean by this is that they are capable of adhering to the rules of right conduct, which means that they have freedom of choice, which also means that they have a will. Consider the following evidence for this. Scripture suggests that there are both good and evil angels. Do you remember Peter’s statement in this regard? “For if God did not spare the angels when they sinned…” (2 Pet. 2.4)  Or what about Jude when he said, “And the angels who did not keep their own position, but left their proper dwelling, he has kept in eternal chains in deepest darkness for the judgment of the great day” (Jude 6)? If angels can be holy or evil, it means that they have a moral element to them. The holy angels are at this moment behaving in a freely chosen morally acceptable (to God) manner.
