What Does the Bible Say About..Angels Sinning?

Can angels sin?


Apparently angels are capable of sin. “And the angels which kept not their first estate, but left their own habitation, he hath reserved in everlasting chains under darkness unto the judgment of the great day.” (Jude 6) “Then shall he say also unto them on the left hand, Depart from me, ye cursed, into everlasting fire, prepared for the devil and his angels.” (Matthew 25:41) Some say that Satan, himself, was an angel, although that is never clearly stated in the Bible.
