  • I did just want to let you know of all the Luciferkin I've seen you are... pretty much the only one believed, so I mean, not directed at you. Read a lot of your stuff because I was skeptical, and I do believe ya now, so, :thumbsup:.

    Haha, thanks! And oh, yeah, it definitely makes for a lot of writing. Every time I make a post that details more of my beliefs or explores something that I haven't already talked about yet, or even just explains it better than I think I did before, I collect it and copy it into a big word-dump document for safekeeping. So far I have around 17k words written about it, all scattered around in different places and conversations I've had with people before.

    That's cool. Perhaps I should start up with that, sounds like a good thing to get together... Well, thanks for the idea, and have a great day! ^^ 
    Hey there! Thanks for replying to my questions in the spirituality thread. I read your blog btw, and a) like the way you write and b) enjoy your descriptions of knowing how and why you identify as Lucifer. It seems, from your writings at least, that my perception that Lucifer isn't "evil" may be wrong, but I'd love to hear your feelings on this. I feel like he isn't necessarily malicious, but just has a different concept of right and wrong/punishment reward, or a different plan for things as G*d. G*d wasn't happy about this and cast him out. Although I haven't read past the first 5 books of the Bible (Torah), so if my understanding is wrong feel free to give me a schoolin'! Look forward to hearing from you!

    Personally, I feel that Lucifer is "evil" to an extent, just not as mindless and static a personality as was traditionally represented. That's why I like [I]Paradise Lost[/I] so much -- it was the first work to show him with a complex, dynamic character that was more complicated and conflicted, and in that respect I feel it is highly accurate even as fiction. A main issue that comes up in the poem is the question of free will, and how Lucifer doesn't have any; he's predestined to be the Devil, [I]knows that[/I], and is frustrated at the inescapable lock on his fate so half of his big arguing speeches are more to convince [I]himself [/I]that this was all his decision. "Walking existential crisis" is how I would define Lucifer, in summary. I feel he [I]can [/I]be malicious, that part of his character includes that deep-seated hatred and wrath, but also with what you said and the differing concept of right/wrong or simply a different wish for his own life. I feel his Fall is less "someone else cast him out" and more that he did leave of his own accord, but the leaving broke him. I have some [URL="https://www.kinmunity.com/blogs/entry/1457-kinlog-42217-the-nature-of-falling/"]recent writings[/URL] about this that I just put up on my blog for further explanation.

    Past the first 5 books, honestly most lore and theories regarding angels and fallen angels has to be extrapolated. The Bible's focus is humans, so it makes sense it wouldn't really delve into more specifics. [I]Paradise Lost[/I] takes what little details [I]are [/I]in the Bible and expands on them. But as the representation of Satan in later books of the Bible goes, honestly to me it has always sounded like someone who got saddled with the worst job, because he's always expected to show up for certain key moments. I wouldn't say your opinion on Lucifer is wrong, per se, just that it's not the only side to him.

    And thank you so much! I'm glad you enjoyed reading my writing!
