the problem is that the path of satan (darkness/temptation-lucifer is personification, not real..k, maybe, idk) is the path that grants power, wealth,
women, general fame
while the path of god (of light/understanding) is the path that will inevitably take everything from you, forcing you to see that all of the fame, and
money, the sex is just a distraction keeping you from growing spiritually. this is the way of jesus, of bhuddha, and of myself
Lucifer is the "light bearer"
Edit for: realizing you mentioned lucifer not being real, but you don't know.
Sorry got ahead of myself, eager to challenge you. I've had a couple drinks, my apologies.

Lucifer was infact very real, but he is not the Devil
The name Lucifer ended up getting used by some as a reference to the Devil due to a similarity in two stories -
"When the Lord has given you rest from your pain and turmoil and the hard service with which you were made to serve, you will take up this taunt
against the king of Babylon: How the oppressor has ceased! How his insolence has ceased! … How you are fallen from heaven, O Day Star, son of Dawn!
How you are cut down to the ground, you who laid the nations low! You said in your heart, "I will ascend to heaven; I will raise my throne above the
stars of God; I will sit on the mount of congregation on the heights of Zaphon; I will ascend to the tops of the clouds, I will make myself like the
Most High." But you are brought down to Sheol, to the depths of the Pit. Those who see you will stare at you, and ponder over you: "Is this the man
who made the earth tremble, who shook kingdoms, who made the world like a desert and overthrew its cities, who would not let his prisoners go home?",
This refers to the King of Babylon, a very powerful man, but not the Devil, his fate was compared to that of the Morning Star (Venus), and its from
Venus that you get the term "Light Bearer", rising at dawn, the brightest of stars, but only until the sun pokes his cheeky head out from behind the
This very same principle was then used to describe Satans fall from grace after he got a little bit to big for his boots, so to speak, cast out as a
"fallen angel" into the abyss, or just above it, sort of like a biblical security guard
On the subject of Freemasons, well, they are Criminals, plain and simple, they like to dress themselves up as the world elite, but dont let that
distract you, they are criminals.
From what I have read on the subject you can trace the Freemasons descent into criminality right back to about 1770 when one of the Rothschilds has
the bright idea to create the Illuminati (keepers of the light), and then decides to infiltrate the Freemasons.
And the purpose of the illuminati ?, Division, Divide and Conquer, take a solid body, cut it in half, make the two halfs hate each other, then lend
the two sides money, at interest, secured by the taxpayer, and send them of to war, that ring any bells, it should do, there is a very good chance
every single war since then has been created for the purpose of pure profit.
Some bright spark worked out that war was a very good cash generator, so, they might dress themselves in fancy expensive suits, and live in great big
mansions, and walk the earth with all the hairs and graces of kings, but they are still Criminals, dont ever forget that.
