TextBefore the fall, this was his task as apart of above. He took it too far (wanted to tempt and rule above), and thus he was cast out. So, this is correct in the sense of before, but not current day.
Good point jhill76. Another question I have is -- Was this angel cast out of heaven after Adam, before Adam or same time as Adam? I guess what I really mean is, did this angel live along with Adam as a neighbor ?
John 12:30-31 30 Jesus said, “This voice was for your benefit, not mine. 31 Now is the time for judgment on this world; now the prince of this world will be driven out.

Scientology is still faith of a sort, because it still doesn't explain everything.
That's why it gets lumped up with the rest of the religions - because parts of it are still based on faith that yes, science will answer any and all questions regarding the cosmos and our being here in due time.

AfterInfinity, some of us are still interested in where you got your information on the name "Jesus" meaning "God is the Way".
Here's Votan's original request:
I thought it meant savior or God saves ... savior... where do you get "God is the way" where did you get this from anyways...

TextHe was cast before Adam, but still could hold council with Father on a limited basis to speak. He was allowed to live on Earth, yes. But, when Jesus died, he was sent away from the Earth.

We are all equal as humans, but we were not first causes. God is. Everything after that is a part of creation.
I can understand what you mean. At the same time though I think our essence is the same thing, and that any of us has the opportunity to return to being equal to God if we're able to do that. That we come from God, and that any of us can become that again, in a similar way that a kid who's equal as a being to an adult, can grow up to become an adult. (it's just that we're so deluded it's very rare we do actually grow up properly. We don't naturally progress like we should do any more.) So yeah, we're not currently equal, again, in mindset, but we can be. The chances are small with the way things are, but I think it can be done.edit on 8-7-2012 by robhines because: typo
