Report Satan's second cursing? in LDS Gospel Discussion Posted September 6 · Edited September 6 by The Folk Prophet 28 minutes ago, Vort said: "Rational" in the sense of being able to reason? Sure. "Rational" in the sense of using reason and logic to accomplish his goals? Certainly. "Rational" in the sense of making choices for the best possible outcome? Nope, but that's because our definition of "best" is "eternal life", something in which Satan has no apparent interest. Which might or might not demonstrate the applicability of your answer. (I think it does.) Thanks for stepping all over my attempt at being funny. 🤣 Edit: Maybe my joke would have played better if I'd stated it thusly: Were you under the impression that Satan was a calm, peaceful, and happy being? My point is that Satan seems driven by emotion, rather than logic and reason, not that he has no ability to be logical. It strikes me as a bit of a funny thing to ask, "Why would Satan be angry (upset) at [any given thing]?" Isn't Satan, sort of, upset incarnate?
