Lucifer was an angel, thought he was too cool for God, wanted some worshipers & left. The worshipers were other angels, now demons.
In Christian mythology, Lucifer is the first created Archangel and rebelled by tempting Eve in the garden with the argument of knowledge, thus directly contributing to the fall of man as defined in the mythology. He follows the same trope as Prometheus in ancient Greek mythology as a figure of rebellion against orders not to give mankind something that is meant only for the gods. In Greek mythology, Prometheus gave the gift of fire to man and in Christian mythology, as aforementioned, Lucifer tempts the gift of knowledge. Both were cast from heaven. The same trope is in all earlier religions (ie: Egyptian) as one of the gods or sons of gods that rebels.
Christian faith* was the question format. Try not to offend others
It is only offensive to those who don't know the history of Christianity as it relates to other mythologies. It shouldn't be offensive. Sorry you found it thus. It is actually important to know how things evolve and relate in ancient texts.
"Mythology" is basically your way of saying it isn't real. I agree that history is important to know, but calling it "mythology" several times is clearly a pointless shot at the religion. No reason to fire at a group of people.
The story of Lucifer is symbolic. The trope goes back to the Egyptians. This is just historical record, not a shot at Christianity. I don't get why the symbolic has to be so threatening. It's more a thread linking the entire tapestry.
The scriptures are clear. there was nothing and God created EVERYTHING.see Col 1:16
God says He created the devil (one of his names is the spoiler)see Isaiah 54:16
On the 6th day God created all that walk or crawl on the land. see Ge:24
The serpent created on the 6th day is in the garden with the man and woman. see Gen 3:1
The devil was a liar from the beginning.see 1 Jn 3:8
So it is clear that God created the devil to be the spoiler on the 6th day of creation and that he is a "good spoiler".
if you want a more detailed article refer to my hub "where did the devil come from".
The lie that is taught most places that lucifer refers to satan, can easily be debunked by reading the entire chapter 14 of Isaiah which clearly shows in verse 4 that lucifer is the king of
All angels who left their place are are bound in chains until the judgement. see 2 Pet 2:4 & Jude 6

Christian Faith and Religion are similarly not the same. Why? Religion gets people into dogmas and hates that you wonder where they all came from. Jesus was never dogmatic in any form, but walked totally in Love. The Christian faith ought to be the life of a believer in Christ without being that...

No matter what way you look at it.If God created life, then Satan the devil was born through God's creation, this makes GOD responsible for Satan's existence. So blame GOD for all things bad, instead of just shouting hallelujah and praising him or her for typical life results.If God did create...
