why is lucifer or satan the bad guy in Christianity and other religions ? isit because he tempted eve in the garden ? isit because he tempted jesus ?

why does his name translate as the morning star or light bringer and be the embodiment of darkness , the beast , the devil , satan the accuser ect .

from my understanding it was the serpent or the fallen angels that gave man knowledge no ? and that it was god who relased the ten plagues , caused the flood , allowed the satan or adversary to test job ect

im no satanist or luciferian i wouldnt worship nobody but i dont understand why he is the bad guy if im not mistaken he had free wil according to the bible and decided to challenge god because he thought he could do or was better than god .

itis is similar to greek mythology's prometheus legend in a way where the titan steals fire from zeus to give to mankind like a gift from the gods and is chained to a rock having a eagle of zeus peck his liver out every day for eternity because he gave man fire which brings light he was the lucifer light bringer of humanity .

found there is book comparing the two here , http://en.wikipedia...._and_Prometheus

From a storytelling POV it's because you need a villain.
From a historical POV it's because he lost.
From a Bibilical one it's because he's not that nice a being.

I must not fear. Fear is the Mind-Killer. It is the little death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear.
I will permit it to pass over me and to move through me. And when it is gone I will turn the inner eye to see it's path.
When the fear is gone, there will be nothing.
Only I will remain.

From a cosmetic POV, he has horns and likes fire.

neither of which are particularly cuddly

I thought Lucifer was his name when he was still in heaven, and doing whatever his job was in heaven, the bible doesn't say what that job  was.  He only became known as Satan when he was thrown out of heaven, and its not like God didn't give him chances to Obey him, I think he was coming down out of heaven  and making trouble on earth and then  going back  to heaven. back and forth for a while. Then God stopped him. Satan or Lucifer wanted to be a God and worshipped and when he questioned Gods right to rule in front of all the otherangels God threw him out of heaven, But the thing is he took a lot of angels that agreed with him also.  I don't think Satan is generally a nice being that's looking out for humans

I dunno how cannonical it is, my theology is a little rusty..

But I believe he was something of the choir leader.  Whereas Michael was the leader of the millitary aspects, Lucifer was meant to be that for teh worship aspects.


again, probably no cannonical.

he took a significant amount of the Angels with him, when he was thrown down. But then they became known as demons. your Right Michael was pretty much the military leader

If one actually reads the Bible, there is actually very little to imply that Satan is some sort of adversary of God. Most of what we now associate with the character come from Milton's "Paradise Lost", ie. the war in Heaven, Lucifer the light giver, etc. I'm not positive as to whether Milton got this from any other text, religious or otherwise. As some have previously pointed out, the Serpent of Eden is called just that, a serpent. Never positivly identified as anything divine or demonic.

In other words: The very existence of Satan the Adversary is sketchy at best.

I reject your reality, and substitute my own! Mostly because yours is boring as hell.

Just a reminder that Satan only killed 10 people (Book of Job) in the entire Bible, but it was under God's authority.In the OT Satan is an Angel under God's Will, and in the NT he is a tempter to Christ, and Revelation is what inspired later Dante's Inferno along with other works all ready mentioned.

THE
HISTORY OF THE DEVIL
AND THE
IDEA OF EVIL
FROM THE EARLIEST TIMES TO THE PRESENT DAY



by
PAUL CARUS


GOOD AND EVIL AS RELIGIOUS IDEAS.

THIS WORLD OF OURS is a world of opposites. There is light and shade, there is heat and cold, there is good and evil, there is God and the Devil.

The dualistic conception of nature has been a necessary phase in the evolution of human thought. We find the same views of good and evil spirits prevailing among all the peoples of the earth at the very beginning of that stage of their development which, in the phraseology of Tylor, is commonly called Animism. But the principle of unity dominates the development of thought. Man tries to unify his conceptions in a consistent and harmonious Monism. Accordingly, while the belief in good spirits tended towards the formation of the doctrine of Monotheism, the belief in evil spirits led naturally to the acceptance of a single supreme evil deity, conceived as embodying all that is bad, destructive, and immoral.

History of the Devil, by Paul Carus, [1900], at sacred-texts.com

A highly recommended Great read ...

satan is only mentioned in the OT about 19 times apparently dont no how many times in the NT , i have not read paradise lost but i do agree with what you said that the very existence is sketchy at best .

i agree itis only one side of the story , i have heard christian people say many times over that lucifer is the god of this world and that our society is basically satanic in that respect as it was him that gave man knowledge or teachings .  if you look at satanic symbols or what is said to refer to satanism in symbolism you see lots and lots of celeb's putting up signs and politicians , presidents in music videos theres some great videos on this on youtube but thing about these videos is its always a christian that made the effort to make the video exposing certain individuals when im aware that satanism doesnt always imply they worship satan as god not always but kind of worshiping yourself as your own god by doing what you want but then theres the luciferian religion where he is worshiped as god and the light giver to mankind ect i am also aware of the ritual sacrifices involving animals which disgusts me tho bigtime , there were burnt offering as sacrifice in the bible and wasnt it an angel that saved abraham's son issac from being scarifced by abraham ?

As I understand it the Hebrews already had a angel who served as God's "devil's advocate" as in Job, but wasn't really evil, just doing a job.  Later they went under Persian influence and here is where their Shatan became Satan the Devil.

who was that frank ?  the ' advocate ' , who is azazel aswel wasnt he also punished prometheus style for giving to man , some people think that shaitan or satan is comparable to the feathered serpent quetzalcoatl i dont no maybe there reading to much into the serpent thing but the serpent or symbolism of serpents is common among the ancient world , i think the serpent also is a symbol for knowledge wisdom fertility ect found this - http://en.wikipedia....rican_mythology - quite interesting .
