Raphael suggests something to this effect in Book 8 when he says to Adam: "Be strong, live happy, and love, but first of all/ Him whom to love is to obey, and keep/ His great command" ().

Our friendly angel suggests that loving God involves obeying God, or rather God's definition of love involves some notion of following the rules.

Through God’s initial speech, for example, Milton discards the orthodox Calvinist position of predestination. Omniscient God, seeing the fall in the future, says that men cannot blame God for their fate, or for acts Miltons God book evil or bad luck, insisting that man possesses free will, even though God can foresee what they will do.

Predestination in Book III of Paradise Lost Milton's purpose in Paradise Lost is nothing less than to assert eternal providence and justify the ways of God to men - a most daunting task. For Milton to succeed in his endeavour, he has to unravel a number of theologiccal thorns that have troubled christian philosophers for.

Milton wrote Paradise Lost in the tradition of the old epics, but with one significant difference: his verses did not rhyme.Yeah we get that he's God, but when we actually meet God in Book 3, he doesn't even compare to Satan.

He comes off like some boring unnamed character, whereas Satan is like an evil Hamlet, or Iago, or any other major character that isn't a talking corpse (check out his famous speech on Mt.
