Anf-01 ix.iv.xxiv Pg 9 And this same thing does the Lord also say in the Gospel, to those who are found upon the left hand: “Depart from me, ye cursed, into everlasting fire, which my Father hath prepared for the devil and his angels;”3762
Gen. iii. 14.
Anf-01 viii.iv.cii Pg 2 Could He not have at once created a multitude of men? <index subject1="Angels" subject2="their freedom" title="250" id="viii.iv.cii-p2.2"/><index subject1="Free-will in man and angels" title="250" id="viii.iv.cii-p2.3"/><index subject1="Man" subject2="his creation" title="250" id="viii.iv.cii-p2.4"/>But yet, since He knew that it would be good, He created both angels and men free to do that which is righteous, and He appointed periods of time during which He knew it would be good for them to have the exercise of free-will; and because He likewise knew it would be good, He made general and particular judgments; each one’s freedom of will, however, being guarded. Hence Scripture says the following, at the destruction of the tower, and division and alteration of tongues: ‘And the Lord said, Behold, the people is one, and they have all one language; and this they have begun to do: and now nothing will be restrained from them of all which they have attempted to do.’2338
Gen. iii. 15.
Anf-01 ix.vi.xli Pg 14 And the Lord summed up in Himself this enmity, when He was made man from a woman, and trod upon his [the serpent’s] head, as I have pointed out in the preceding book.
