The father of lies is well acquainted with the Father of Lights. He fears him. We need to know that “every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of Lights, in whom there is no shadow of turning.” So this means to me, despite my past, my failures and every weakness I carry in my being, God ‘s love for me never changes. He always loves me.
God’s love is indescribable and it’s impossible to imagine it’s depth and magnitude. When the Father of Light casts even a glance on the father of lies – the truth is exposed, and the lies that he’s crafted lose all their power. What is the truth? The truth is that satan is a liar who is out to steal, kill and destroy all people. God says I am His Beloved (truth). Satan says I’m not worthy (lie). Who I choose to believe will make the difference in how I live my life.
Father of Lights VS the father of lies
Don't be deceived, my dear brothers and sisters. Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning. ~ James 1:16-26
I went into making this film by asking the simple question: who is God? I wanted to know His character, His personality, and who He truly is. To answer this question, we had to peel back the many layers of religious garbage that has been passed onto him through generations. That He is angry. Vengeful. Wrathful. And in general, that He doesn’t like you very much. Father of Lights attempts to tear away much of the bad press the Almighty has received over the years, and reveals a God who is far better than anyone could have possibly imagined.
A god is a being whose entire reality is established and enacted by their own will alone.

My primary interest in this life is epidemiology. I have crafted many vaccines.

Would you heed the man who preaches obedience to god or would you the one who strives for greater self-reliance?
“I will ascend above the highest clouds, I will make myself like the Most High.” Isaiah 14:14
He refused to admit he was wrong. Eventually Lucifer became entrenched in his pride and God could no longer influence him. God reluctantly removed from his position of Chief Covering angel. Lucifer was thrown out of Heaven, along with the angels who had chosen to follow him. Satan had it all, he really did, think about it for a moment, his title was “Chief Covering angel” That means he was over ALL the other angels in Heaven! Source
Melisa: But if they could just see you...
Jesus: Not even that would be enough. Look at Satan, he stood before me in the very throne room of God. But he thought the beauty and the power bestowed was somehow earned. Gave himself over to pride. Scratch any sin and just below the surface you'll find pride...
Consider having an audience with God, knowing that you had worked all of your life in Christian service, had served as a pastor, opened your home to children who were bruised and maimed – and God told you that your faith was dead and your works were in vain, and that the life that you had lived, the life you called a service, was an abomination. God told Bro. Pittman that untold millions are living the same kind of life and they are in danger of His everlasting wrath!
Why did God call Howard Pittman’s life an abomination? God, not in a gentle and quiet voice, but with thundering firmness and authority, told him that he had a false god in his life, and that he served this false god every day. Pittman had no idea what that could be as he did not profess any other religion, had no statues or shrines in his home, and bowed down to no other god. His false god that made his life an abomination was SELF!
Bro. Pittman saw the council of Satan and watched the rulers plan their strategy against the saints (Eph. 6:12). They are out to make the saints ineffective, making them believe they are OK if they do good works. He stood at the Throne Room entrance and heard the thundering voice of our God. What God said is quoted verbatim on these tapes. It was earth-shaking as he heard the words, "You are a Laodicean Christian." You serve a false god, SELF."
Don't make the same mistake Satan made with God...
What you are describing is exactly what got him evicted from Heaven.
Self righteous pride and the desire for power...
Worshiping and serving a false god AKA 'self'.

The book is called the Forbidden Religion by Jose M. Herou Aragon. Fascinating read though not for the faint of heart.

Matter is ... satanic??? Therefore the creator is satanic????
By Kindle Addict on September 1, 2013
I wish there was a category for zero stars. I'm glad this was free, because if not, for the first time ever I would have asked Amazon for a refund on a Kindle book that I purchased. The above treatise: "Matter is something satanic, therefore whoever created it must also be a satanic being" was found within the first few pages in the book. And it only seemed to get worst. This was not as expected. I thought this would be a scholarly examination of the ancient gnostic religion. Whew, was I wrong!!! Now I have to figure out how to delete a book entirely from your collection.
