Lucifer is another name for Satan. This is because people interpret a passage in the Book of Isaiah of the Bible in a certain way. Lucifer is Latin. It is made of two parts, lux-lucis (light) and ferre (to bring). There are two mentions of Lucifer in the Latin Vulgate. It is used to refer to the morning star, the planet Venus that appears at dawn: once in 2 Peter 1:19 to translate the Greek word "Φωσφόρος" (Phosphoros), which has exactly the same literal meaning of "Light-Bringer" that "Lucifer" has in Latin; and once in Isaiah 14:12 to translate "הילל" (Hêlēl), which also means "Morning Star".

Lucifer is "the morning star," the "light bearer," and consort of the Queen of Heaven. His star is Venus, which is, also, associated with Venus the goddess of love and Eros the god of love.

In, Charles Godfrey Leland's, "Gospel of Aradia," Lucifer is the brother of Diana and the father of the strega goddess Aradia. Diana was, also, known as Lucifera.

In Judeo-Christian mythology, Lucifer is confounded with a Cananite god who struggles against the tyrannical creator "god" and serves as an advocate for mankind that we might possess the knowledge and wisdom of the gods. Later, the Christians further confound Lucifer with Satan (in this case, a man named Helel, a Babylonian King who was an enemy to the Jews) in the King James Version of the Bible. Consequently, modern Christians commonly confuse Lucifer with their Satan, however, Satan to Christians is anyone they don't like or who represents some idea they don't agree with. The term, "Satan," simply means adversary.

The Christian Gnostics, regarded as heretical by the early Church of Rome, say Lucifer as either a brother of god or as his elder son who was cast out of heaven. It is interesting to note that the Christian Jesus says he, too, is "the light."

Lucifer may be seen as Prometheus, the Greek Titan and trickster who stole fire, which symbolizes illumination or knowledge, to give to mankind so that they would be equal to the gods. He was punished by Zeus for his disobedience. Like Lucifer, he is seen as a champion of humanity against the tyranny of a god who wants to have all of the glory for himself and keep his creation (mankind) in bondage and ignorance.

Is a common mistake to think satanism, worshiping Satan and followers of Lucifer, or luciferianism are the same.

Luciferianism is not a religion; rather, it is the antithesis of religion. There is no set canon of accepted belief or doctrine in Luciferianism. Most Luciferians are atheists, who do not acknowledge any god or supreme being. Many Luciferians, but not all, practice witchcraft, which is most often regarded as an esoteric science and not a religion.

Luciferianism is the pursuit of illumination and knowledge. Most Luciferians are avid readers and researchers.

Generally, Luciferianism is not a practice like other types of spiritual "paths;" more often it is simply a philosophy. Although, Lucifer may, also, be regarded as a living spirit. It is possible to hold some aspect of both of these perspectives since there is, throughout the world, a primeval creative intelligence that corresponds with Lucifer. Generally, Lucifer is not worshiped in the sense that this term would be understood by Christians who have a concept of an exalted creator "God" who demands worship, servitude and deference. Lucifer is the antithesis of these ideas. Although, the spirit of Lucifer may be invoked.

The concept of Lucifer inspires to dig deeper into life's mysteries to discover the truth about the nature of the world, both physically and metaphysically. To be a Luciferian is to adopt the mental attitude of seeking enlightenment. Lucifer is the inspirational muse of artists, writers, inventors, scholars and researchers. Luciferianism is a humanistic philosophy. Luciferians seek the betterment of mankind and are on a constant search for more knowledge and wisdom.

Some Luciferians are Satanists, but not all because there are many different varieties of Satanists, as well. The relationship between Satan and Lucifer in worldwide history is complicated. Usually, when a group of people regard Luciferian entities as "Satan" it is because they see them as a rival for their monotheistic god.

Lucifer is an ancient pre-Christian and pagan spirit who has counterparts in throughout the world. Most Luciferians regard themselves as pagans, although, they are not necessarily neo-pagans. The term "neo-pagan" confuses the matter because Luciferian philosophy does not fit into the paradigm of re-creationist pagan traditions. Many Luciferians avoid applying the term "pagan" to themselves because this often arouses a great deal of anger and hostility among neo-pagans.

So forget about sacrifice virgins at midnight, Black Metal and black clothes, is not about to be against Christians or Catholics or GOD. And to think EVIL = Luciferian. If you still thinking it, read the text again. And again.

Anyway, i think all religions and every philosophy are good if is not about to start wars, hate, envy, greed and divide people.

This is definately one of my favourites from you! I love how less rotten but more ghostly it looks, emerging halfway from darkness. The consistence is amazing, very aeriform and disembodied! It reminds me a lot of classical iconic sculptures you find inside churches, adding a lot to the mystery and the dark side of religion you mentioned in your awesome description! Love it rockstar! :D

Great, atmospheric artwork - it also works well along with the song.

About the context/description: I consider myself a sceptic and for practical everyday description: an atheist. I don't assume there are "higher powers" at work in this world, neither God (no matter if it is a christian, jewish or muslim concept of it) nor esoteric spirits, ghosts, angels, etc. This said "Luciferianism" sounds just like another way of humans succumbing themselves under a given concept, a given idea. Lucifer as a symbol for freedom from religion, a symbol for individuality might seem attractive at first - but symbols become icons and icons besome badges and flags and those tend to give direction and "helpful" advise on how people should lead their lives. Indeed the general direction seems to be a good one - but what is won if all people walk in the right direction, but for the wrong reasons? Not because they trust their own minds and decisions, but because they trust a concept, an idea that came to them from somewhere else? That is not autonomy, that is heteronomy...
I really like your painting and the description if I look at it like it was a poem. Bringing across a message via metaphors (where in this case the metaphor is "Lucifer"). But in the very moment people start calling themselves "Luciferians" they start confusing the metaphor with the real thing. Being blinded once again...

Interesting comment. I really enjoy to know the points of view of the people, specially when read the texts with the music. I´m agree with you, i mean, you can own a gun, and the good or bad use of it depends of you. Some people will use for to feel safe, some people will use for to kill somebody.

Human race needs to believe in something for to be something. Call it fame, religion, be part of a society´s group, succes, power, love, sex.... But is not wrong, i think it can make you happy if you need it and you find something what makes you happy, if is not forced for culture, tradition.... The best thing in the world is to be yourself, the only thing you really own is your life, so.... people is free to choose masters, leaders, creeds, or wahtever they feel to need, if they need something.

Thanks for your words, is a real pleasure to know your opinion, and im glad you like it.
