No Knees on Satan?
#1
I just read that Satan doesn't have knees (but it doesn't explain how or why we know that).

Why doesn't Satan have knees? So he can't kneel before God? Was he always like that? How do we know that?

Satan may be portrayed allegorically as having no knees, in order to illustrate a point, but he is not a corporeal being. He is a fallen angel, and although he is fallen, his nature is still purely spirit.

Perhaps its a reference to common art forms, which represent him as having backward pointing knees, as in a dog's hind legs, which make it impossible to kneel. It could just be a metaphorical reference to his nature of pride to the point of not being willing to submit to God's authority.

Oh, duh. I should have known that. I was just so surprised by that statement!
