Ah....now this is interesting to me. "There is only one creator of everything. One omnipotent entity. He goes by many names. As far as I know, "Lucifer" has never been one of them. Do you think anyone could justify calling the creator Lucifer? "
Lucifer means bringer of light and is associated with Venus. Some consider the light Lucifer brought to be knowledge....there is some deeper history to this question...

I so wish you would believe, read the Catholic and non-Catholic prophetic, they're saying the same with the
Catholic more explicit for a reason.

By this comment I take it that one does not need to be technically associated with any particular religion and just has to maintain belief in a higher power, is this correct?

There's another massive part of the population that is excluded from freemasonry: women.
Please could any of the Freemasons tell me why this is? T
The first problem is that Lucifer is a Latin name. So how did it find its way into a Hebrew manuscript, written before there was a Roman language? To find the answer, I consulted a scholar at the library of the Hebrew Union College in Cincinnati. What Hebrew name, I asked, was Satan given in this chapter of Isaiah, which describes the angel who fell to become the ruler of hell?
The answer was a surprise. In the original Hebrew text, the fourteenth chapter of Isaiah is not about a fallen angel, but about a fallen Babylonian king, who during his lifetime had persecuted the children of Israel. It contains no mention of Satan, either by name or reference. The Hebrew scholar could only speculate that some early Christian scribes, writing in the Latin tongue used by the Church, had decided for themselves that they wanted the story to be about a fallen angel, a creature not even mentioned in the original Hebrew text, and to whom they gave the name "Lucifer."
Do you think anyone could justify calling the creator Lucifer?
