"How art thou fallen from heaven
O day-star, son of the morning! (Helel ben Shahar)
How art thou cast down to the ground,
That didst cast lots over the nations!
And thou saidst in thy heart:
'I will ascend into heaven,
Above the stars of God (El)
Will I exalt my throne;
And I will sit upon the mount of meeting,
In the uttermost parts of the north;
I will ascend above the heights of the clouds;
I will be like the Most High (Elyon).'
Yet thou shalt be brought dow to the nether-world,
To the uttermost parts of the pit."

- Isaiah 14:12-15

----------o----------

Lucifer is a Latin word, literally meaning "light-bearer", that was used as a name for the "day star" or "Morning Star" that precedes the rising of the sun. Venus, the morning star.

A odd fact: Venus is all covered by a solid layer of molten rock, maybe expelled by several volcano eruptions in a old time, on the whole planet surface, as a sea of lava. Like an old real Hell.

Hundreds upon thousands of people would disagree with you. God has been nothing but a shining light in my life, calling out to me even when I once cursed his name and thought that the Fallen one was my true friend. Never will I bow before Satan...Never again.

I'm with you brother from another mother but aligned with the same Father. I didn't' mean it literally, but it's an expression that we're God's children; and as His children we are brothers in Christ.

Fuck the whole of organized religion, I say. All you have to do is look out the window to prove that any God out there must not care about us, and it turns reasonable people into hate-filled morons.

If you need a religion, make your own. It'll fit you better and have less pointless dogma.

My Church is like my family. And you can't change the world *snap* just like that. And you underestimate the power of faith. It is as much apart of a persons identity as their personality. And if hundreds of people from my church choose to do kindness to others through their faith, than how can that be evil? We're not being "ignorant bigots", we're doing good and helping people. If more and more belivers do as we do, who are you to say that is evil?

Then why are you members of a religion best know for Crusades, the Inquisition, pedophiles and having a torture device for a symbol?

I mean, there are so many other ways of looking at the world, ones that don't involve Hell and human sacrifice and a God who acts like an abusive father. You could go be a Zen Buddhist, maybe, that seems like a sensible religion.

...wow.
I mean no slander against you, but that was ignorant.
The crusades and inquisition were great and terrible nightmares, yes. I am sickened by how they were started and how they were fought. For us, the actions of those in the past are complete and utter heresy against God. But in all honesty, there is a lot more detail and complexity to our Faith than you give us credit.

You are free to your own views, but think of the cross and the "Human-sacrifice" of Jesus as this way; it didn't just pop out of no where, a lot of political machinations were the cause of it. The Government-priesthood under the Roman occupation became more and more concerned with upholding the law, and not actually tending to the citizens of Jerusalem nor their spirituality. Something that God sought to change. Jesus was a teacher, they called him Rabbi; and for his "blasphemous" words and the fear that he might disrupt the holiday of Passover. So he is unjustly tried and crucified, becoming a martyr.
That's the beauty of what the cross has become for many people (not all) but still many people. What was once a symbol that struck terror in the heart, now is a symbol of hope. It (in my opinion) shows how things can change, that the darkness will not last and that there IS hope for something better.

I could spend hours expressing what it truly is like to be a Christian, but that would break this page.

To wrap up, I did try Zen Buddhism... and felt nothing. I felt no spiritual stir, nor anything else really, save for the irritation that the congregation wasn't doing anything. There were starving people in the city across the river, and yet they did nothing. But the Church of New Life was doing so much more and asked for little to nothing in return. For the first time in my life, I saw a openly Lesbian college student baptized and embrace in a group hug by the Church, the fact that she was gay, didn't matter to the Christians, they didn't see it as anything sinful, and loved her for the person she was. We are not so black and white as most people see us.

that is an interesting odd fact. makes me want to play Dante's Inferno. idk. I love illustrators who are also hard-core gamers. you can see it in their work. I'm not sure if Genzoman ever played it or if the pic is older than the game, but I can feel the influence somewhere

oh, and as always, splendid!

Wait, wasn't that some Wicca symbol that was turned into his symbol? Or is it really older than Wicca and it's a hipster conspiracy theory?

Fist-of-doom Featured By Owner Apr 14, 2015  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I'm fairly certain it predates Wicca. I'm sure Wicca uses some sort of star symbol (as well as other astrological signs) but Lucifer and all that followed him had a symbol of a 5-point star eclipsing a circle. The very important Angels were always identified by astrological signs and God was sybolized by the sun. Lucifer who was The Moring Star wanted to be better than God so so the Star is set in front of the Sun.

:iconfist-of-doom:
Fist-of-doom Featured By Owner Apr 15, 2015  Hobbyist Digital Artist
The symbol of The Fallen is a star with FIVE points and is always in front of a circle. it symbolizes Lucifer putting himself before God. The Star of David has SIX points. An easy way to remember is The Fallen symbol is called a pentagram and "Penta" means 5. It's easy to mess up or miss.

"Lucifer" isn´t the name of the Fallen One. It is the name of a pagan deity - an important god in roman astrology.

It became associated with the christian concept of "Satan" due to a mistaken interpretation & traduction of a shady text of the Book of Isaiah (Isaiah 14 ; 12 - 15).

To state that "Satan is still fighting against the Eternal One" was simply a metaphorical phrase intended to state that the "spirit of rejection" (something that Jews would quickly identify with the Yetzer-Hara, the dark side of human mind which rejects the Law) of the Abrahamic faiths is still alive in our days.

It is a figure of speech, bro.

Satan is a fictional entity, much as Yahweh, Zeus, Mars, Enki, or any other deity of the ancient human cultures.

Yet, in many modern philosophies (such as Laveyan Satanism), Satan is revered as a symbolical embodiment of rejection and rebellion against the Abrahamic faiths (Judaism, Christianity, and Islam). Cheers!
