All angels are perfect and were created like that. Why is Satan Evil?

god created all angels to be his perfect followers. They could not sin and turn away from god. Satan used to be an angel and a high ranking one at that. Why did he not bow to adam? Did god make him not to bow? or could god not make him bow? the former case infers god is evil. The latter refutes the assertion that god is omnipotent. Need sarcastic replies

You defeat your own premise.

You defeat your own premise. You can not assert "all angels are perfect followers. Satan was an angel. Satan was not a perfect follower.

"Angels have distinct personalities. They can communicate with one another. (1 Corinthians 13:1) They have thinking ability and are able to compose expressions of praise to God. (Luke 2:​13, 14) And they have the freedom to choose between right and wrong, as seen when some of them sinned by joining Satan the Devil in his rebellion against God.​—Matthew 25:41; 2 Peter 2:4."

Because God/Jehovah Jealous/Allah/etc. ain't perfect.

Hitch,

"All angels are perfect and were created like that. Why is Satan Evil?
god created all angels to be his perfect followers."

The Bible doesn't say that all angels are "good". It says that some angels are evil and that they do Jealous's dirty work.

Psalm 78:49 (KJV) = "He cast upon them the fierceness of his anger, wrath, and indignation, and trouble, by sending evil angels among them."
