    Why Christianity insist on demonizing Lucifer to become a demon within their mythology?

    Lucifer is the sun god, in ancient Rome, depicting every morning Lucifer will bring torch to light the sky and at night he would leave. Christian mythology insist on taking Lucifer, into their story and write him into a creation of the Christian god Yahweh, who rebel and fail and got cast into hell. Why do you think that is the case. Could there be a political motivation, in trying to convince people the god of the sun, is created by Yahweh and a demon that rebel against Yahweh and failed?

    1. In the mythology, it shows that God punishes everyone who defies him and his orders, including angels. This reinforces the meme that everyone must obey God, highest to lowest in human society.
    2. By creating a second tier demon, the story explains why there is evil in the world but God is still greater. Now you have an explanation for the bad in the world that doesn't contradict the faith's central tenets.

    There is a problem with this, more so to do with the fact that a lot of Christians misinterpret this chapter.
    Source: my article What You Should Know About the Devil
    Isaiah 14:12-14
    "How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! how art thou cut down to the ground, which didst weaken the nations!"
    "For thou hast said in thine heart, I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of Elohim: I will sit also upon the mount of the congregation, in the sides of the north:"
    "I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will be like the most High."
    See, Christians misinterpret this and think that Lucifer was the highest angel who then became prideful and rebelled, resulting in him being cast down. But I want you to notice something. Isaiah 14 isn't dealing with celestial angels. It is about a prophecy regarding the children of Jacob.
    Now go back to Isaiah 14 12, but read until verses 15 and 16. Notice how in 16 it says, "Is this the MAN that made the earth to tremble, that did shake kingdoms;". Why would they be calling Lucifer a man if he is a spirit? Why didn't they say angel? Because Lucifer is basically a name used for the ruler of Babylon, not the name of a spiritual being.
    The N.I.V. and other modern versions have set out the text of Isaiah chapters 13-23 as a series of “burdens” on various nations, e.g. Babylon, Tyre, Egypt. Isaiah 14: 4, sets the context of the verses we are considering: “Thou shalt take up this proverb (parable) against the king of Babylon...” (Isaiah 14 4). The prophecy is therefore about the human king of Babylon, who is described as “Lucifer”. On his fall: “they that see thee shall...consider thee, saying, Is this the man that made the earth to tremble...?” (v. 16). Thus Lucifer is clearly defined as a man. Lucifer was a human king , “All kings of the nations...shall speak and say unto thee, Art thou also become weak as we? art thou become like unto us?” (vs. 9-10). Lucifer was therefore a king like any other king.
    Some may say that this is impossible since they believe Isaiah did not live during Nebuchadnezzar's time. But here's the problem; Nebuchadnezzar was not the only king of Babylon. Isaiah 13 prophesies that the Medes and Persians would overtake Babylon. Who fulfilled this? Cyrus the Persian and Darius the Mede. The Chronicle of Nabonidus gives contemporary information about the rise of Cyrus and the erratic behavior of the Babylonian king Nabonidus, who leaves Babylon and spends severa
