The true God is the creator of everything. But people throughout the world create their own gods and worship them. There is Satan, a created angel called Lucifer, who desires to be worshipped, luring people, shows himself as god with different names to different people and is worshipped. God allows this and gives people the option to choose.
Christianity is one of the world’s largest religions. It has many denominations. Every denomination accepts the Bible as the inspired word of God, just for the saying. In fact they do not believe the word of God. Christians believe their preachers more than they trust the Bible. Preachers interpret (twist) the Bible in order to accommodate their own doctrinal beliefs as well as to attract the crowd. By doing this, churches stray away from Jesus Christ. Even though they are away from Christ, they put up a show as if they are worshiping Christ. Most churches modify and improve the method of worship, in order to attract more people and they are successful. They become famous.
But, Jesus Christ says: "Matt 15:8 This people draweth nigh unto me with their mouth, and honoureth me with their lips; but their heart is far from me. 9 But in vain they do worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men." God says that they worship in vain. God does not accept their worship, but the devil does. "2 Thess 2:4 Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God."
I might say Jesus and Lucifer are one in the same. Wouldnt it be ironic, but strangely sensical that the original Bringer of Dawn, demonized through out the ages, who expects nothing in return, would come back to further assist knowing he would probably be murdered by those he was trying to save?

Text Look at the story of the garden... the story is a big allegory of course, but allegorical for what, exactly? It was Lucifer who brought knowledge to Adam and Eve, and showed them the bondage of ignorance they were restrained in. As Lucifer can be translated from Greek as "Bringer of Dawn", it is fitting to call the garden story the allegory of humanitys long night in the darkness of ignorance, and the "Bringer of Dawn" who signaled the impending rising of the light, and the banishing of the dark.

@ work cannot read entire OP + replies, but the "God" of the old testament is Adonay (Adoni) not YHWH.
Apologies if this is a repeat mention.
Perhaps they do, but why do they worship someone who clearly did not seek the peoples worship, nor wanted to be anyones leader? It is clear Jesus wanted one thing: not worship, but for the people to emulate his behavior, to be LIKE him, not to think him a god and beg him for free stuff. Thats the OLD way, which he came to uproot.
