First, I want you guys to read this whole thing before posting. That way, there won't be any hasty assumptive posts.
Second, I will begin by explaining that I don't believe in Lucifer aka Satan aka the Devil...in the physical form.
As a metaphorical manifestation of what which exists within us all...that, I can agree with. See, I have always been confused about religion. And
since religion has tried to answer a large part of what determines our role in the universe, but failed miserably as far as allowing us to understand,
I have gone out on my own to search for the answer. All of my questions, I have been posting my personal answers to...questions that define the
universe as we are aware of it, and even speculating about some of the more...uncertain aspects. And at no point have I said that I am right. I only
state that I believe I am correct, and I have defended my position rather well. Should I be proven wrong in everyone's eyes, I will admit so. But I
will not submit to trolls.
So, I have searched. And I have come to my own person conclusion, that the physical Satan does not exist. How so? Every single act that has been
blamed on the devil, every single instance, has been either a bad mix of variables that would have happened the same way had the situation
Or it originated from within us ourselves.
That is what I believe. Satan exists, not without in any physical manifestation of pure evil, but WITHIN...as temptation, animal urges, and sometimes
just chemical imbalances and rotten energy. By the way, when I say rotten energy, I mean somehow some very negative energy got bottled up inside and
was never released properly, warping the psyche of the person.
Now...the history of Lucifer, the fallen angel. He decided he wanted to usurp God, and God cast him down from the heavens. Let's have a look at the
title of Lucifer: Illuminator, Bringer of Light, Angel of Enlightenment... Yes, apparently Lucifer shows us something. But what?
Many people (mainly Christians and such) will say it has to do with the Tree of Knowledge. Well, I agree, to a point. See, I like to call it the Tree
of Polarity. It showed Adam and Eve good and evil, positive and negative. Instead of being forced to do only good, they now had a choice. They knew
what evil was. They had the temptation.
And because they were so weak from doing only good, they didn't have the resolve to resist evil. They committed evil, and from thereon, they followed
the wishes of their God. Why? Because evil choices show us WHY those choices are evil. Instead of refusing those choices on principle, you can explain
WHY...HOW...WHAT. You can reason with yourself that this and this will happen, and it's bad because of that or the other thing. If you are forced to
only make good choices because you are never tempted, then you are not truly good. You never progress spiritually. You never had the chance to look at
evil, say, "I can't do that, because of this," and then turn away. You never learned, and you never grew.
That's why Lucifer is the Light Bringer. Without temptation, you cannot learn. Without learning, you cannot grow. And without growth, you cannot
Of course, Lucifer is a metaphor. Lucifer is actually just what he is known for...temptation. Lucifer is the name of the temptation within us. Why do
you think he is called the Tempter?
These are the lessons temptation has to teach us. And admit it: without temptation, you never have a choice, because it never occurs to you. And when
you have no choice, you never learn.
If you cannot learn, who can you hope to grow? Lucifer will show us. But we must remember not to let temptation rule us. See the lessons, take them to
heart, and grow. That's the point of learning.
Again, you may take your own stance on this. These are my beliefs; I do not force them upon you. However, I want you to take them into regard...you
might learn from them.
