No it isn't "free". There are conditions attached.

If a person is capable of learning, the Holy Bible can't be blamed if that person doesn't learn what is true and what is false.

It is free but we should be appreciative and display that appreciation.

Assuming Satan is indeed a fallen angel, I'm still trying to figure out why God would punish him by, apparently, giving him more power than all other angels.

If a book contains errors and leads people to believe in certain things that are not true, then, of course, it can be blamed... and when people pass on to the next world and discover that what they believed is wrong, guess what... they're extremely disappointed and any false beliefs that are on their soul must be removed. So best to find this out now and clear our minds of any false beliefs... and we can do this now by asking our Heavenly Father to remove them and He will.

I see you will assume just about anything instead of giving an honest answer.

We are done.
I do not suffer fools well.
Please put me on ignore.
