"Satan (Hebrew: הַשָׂטָן ha-Satan ("the accuser"); Persian "sheytân"; Arabic: الشيطان ash-Shayṭān ("the adversary") - both from the Semitic root: Ś-Ṭ-N) is an embodiment of antagonism that originates from the Abrahamic religions, being traditionally considered an angel in Judeo-Christian belief, and a Jinn in Islamic belief. Originally, the term was used as a title for various entities that challenged the religious faith of humans in the Hebrew Bible." (from wikipedia)
i really wonder why someone is considered "evil", who simply refuses, says no, who questions, who is the most beautiful, eloquent and witty of all angels, a "light-bringer", but who will not bow and obey and instead follows his own passions and rules in his own right.
i like lucifer much more than any other angel and i like the hermits, anchorites and eremites who live by themselves in their own places and do what they want to do and don´t give a dang about what the dominating, hegemonial gods or juggernauts or idols or politicians tell you to do. i emphatically praise and like niceness and kindness and friendliness and generosity. but i´ve actually never ever read that lucifer was ungenerous or not nice, the only thing that is written is that he refused to bow before god and obey his will to worship man. but lucifer was made of fire and man was made of clay. so why should fire worship clay? doesn´t make much sense to me. fire makes clay stable and makes it last. clay needs fire.
lucifer, i like you, the fallen angel, the morning star. i like the night. i like the antagonist, the questioner, the doubter, the refuser, the holdout. i like the snakes and the apples and seduction and deviancy and trespassing and leaving the boundaries of the garden to go into the woods or the ghettos. why live in monaco when you can live in some place like kokkola? why stay with adam when you can have fun with a talking snake?
