Does free will glorify Satan?
I understand your view and it's well written. For certain Isaiah 14 is talking about the King of Babylon as it refers in verse 3. But is this also a "type" of Satan? I also see other reasons why it may be describing also Satan. There seems to be similar language used in Rev 12
Isa 14: 12
How you have fallen from heaven,
morning star, son of the dawn!
You have been cast down to the earth,
you who once laid low the nations!
7 Then war broke out in heaven. Michael and his angels fought against the dragon, and the dragon and his angels fought back. 8 But he was not strong enough, and they lost their place in heaven. 9 The great dragon was hurled down—that ancient serpent called the devil, or Satan, who leads the whole world astray. He was hurled to the earth, and his angels with him.
Is this not the same message? Satan was once in heaven but later cast out to the earth? I don't think this message glorifies Satan. He had free will just like all of God's creation and the fact that he, or any of the other demons, used their free will to rebel against God does not glorify them in any way.
