    In a nutshell, they were in heaven and had intimate knowledge of God's truth. Therefore their willful decision to turn from the truth is inexcusable.

    God created Hell for Satan and the fallen angels because there is no other options for them.

    Good question

    Because, angels are not like humans; we have souls and they are like androids-very very intelligent and wise androids-but still, they were made to serve a function. we were created to have a relationship.  when an angle rebels-it simply has broken and God does not need to put too much feeling into its end. because he cared for it does not mean he was in love with it enough to spend eternity trying to fix it...that would become like the story of frankenstein! and to top it off, angels are not capeable of love.  God wants to be loved by someone that wants to love him-angels do not have that ability.

    think : would you spend all your time building and rebuilding a robot, when you've just become a new parent of a baby?

    Straight and simple point. It is what it is. Just make sure that you do not go to the same place that they will end up at the lake of fire. Repent now because the amount of time for you to repent in each individual life on the earth is whatever the amount of time that you are living on the earth and I would not gamble to repent on your death bed because most death to an individual comes suddenly such as car crashes and heart attack, strokes. Go ahead and gamble to repent in time before you die but I guarantee that you will come up far short to repent in time before you die. Instead why not go to Las Vegas and go to the roulette wheel and put all of your money on black or red with a wild card numbers of 1 to 10 and I am being generous with giving you these numbers to have the ball fall on any of this on the first spin and this is your chance of repenting in time waiting till you are on your deathbed before you die on the earth. I would not take those odds even though I am generous with the numbers of 1 to 10. Good luck.

    Primarily because they don't have a saviour.
    We, humans, can only repent because we DO have a saviour. The penalty for sin is death. That is all inclusive. Men sinned, Jesus died, penalty paid. Repentance brings forgiveness, not just "because", but that the penalty has been paid. There is no "debt" to pay, it has been paid.
    For all those who don't accept the sacrificial death as a replacement for their own, will have to die TO pay their own.
    If I owe a bank money, and someone else goes and pays the debt off, I am not going to be punished for breach of contract. The (righteous) requirements of the contract have been met, so it is annul and void document.
    (fallen)Angels still have a debt that hasn't been paid!

      We have a savior in God, and no one else
      Isaiah 43:3
      For I am the Lord thy God, the Holy One of Israel, thy Saviour:
      Isaiah 43:11
      I, even I, am the Lord; and beside me there is no saviour.
      Isaiah 45:15
      Verily thou art a God that hidest thyself, O God

      Of course they have a savior-God!
      But they passed up their chance by mingling with humans in the garden and Gen 6

    He did. He asked them to serve him/obey him/ acknowledge he was God and they refused. He gave them a chance and they refused to honor him as God because of their pride. As a result they don't want to be forgiven. Its kindda like how you end up in hell because you'd rather be there then with God.

    It must be impossible for them to repent.

    They must have damaged themselves beyond repair by their wrong conduct.

    My answer is actually a question...If heaven and the presence of god is so great then why do we even have fallen angels to begin with? Angels wasn't given freewill like man was.. so how was they even able to turn away to begin with?

    I'm pretty sure God has his reasons. And like others said, they were in heaven - and they were supposedly a lot more intelligent than us. Lucifer (Satan) just decided he wanted all the attention and threw a fit. So he got stuck in his corner.

    No human knows the role they fully play or what their contract is with the Divine Creator. If you have read the Goetia, you will know that a number of the spirits and demons that Solomon questioned fully expected redemption, once they completed their particular contract. If the "sacred texts" of religion are the only source one uses, the mind becomes closed to other possibilities.

    Even the demons are aspects of Creator, just like each of us. Which means that to condemn them is to condemn the Divine for asking them to play the role of evil, an essential component on this reality of polarity.

    There are  evil angels that God uses anyway
    Psalm 78:49
    He cast upon them the fierceness of his anger, wrath, and indignation, and trouble, by sending evil angels among them.

    In Hebrew the son’s of God are angels
    Genesis 6:2
    That the sons of God saw the daughters of men that they were fair; and they took them wives of all which they chose.

    Angels were made a little higher than man

    Psalm 8:5
    For thou hast made him a little lower than the angels, and hast crowned him with glory and honour.

    Angels are also suppose to keep God’s commandments

    Psalm 103:20
    Bless the Lord, ye his angels, that excel in strength, that do his commandments, hearkening unto the voice of his word.

    The devil has a following of other angels
    Matthew 25:41
    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:
    See also Revelations 12:7, and 12:9
    This is why God’s angels are referred to as holy angels

    Even Paul was  aware what the angels did in Genesis 6

    1 Corinthians 11:10
    For this cause ought the woman to have power on her head because of the angels.

    Jude is speaking of Genesis 6

    Jude 1:6
    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.

    In the garden when God told the serpent he would crawl on his belly, that was  symbolism for the fact he could never again rise to salvation.
