The Satan Story : The Fall Of Lucifer

There is an opinion that the devil was created by God, but it is a pseudodox. Gracious, righteous and loving God could not create such an evil and treacherous being. The devil or Satan was the result of the moral decline of one of the Angels whose name was Lucifer, which is literally translated as a light-bringer or son of the dawn.

Once the anointed cherub named Lucifer became proud of his own wisdom, perfection and originality. It seemed to him that being so outstanding he should be more appreciated and exalted by God and even stand in one line with Him on God's throne.

The honorary status and the glory that were rightly given him by God did not satisfy Lucifer, thus, he decided to exalt himself, ignoring God and His Supreme justice. That is, instead of trying to enjoy a special closeness to God, rejoice in the great honour of God, Lucifer imagined himself worthy of more, worthy of fame, power and what is more the position of God.

God-given wisdom, beauty and great power of Lucifer did him a disservice. Being so great and mighty in his own eyes Lucifer had a fixed idea to compete with God -- the source of all life, wisdom, love and justice in the world. To achieve a higher position above God, the devil decided to overthrow God's rule, declaring himself Lord.

However, first he needed to persuade the inhabitants of heaven in his superiority by proposing them something better than the perfect reign of God, otherwise, no one will go for the Governor, offering the worst life. Thus, the unrestrained pride of Satan led him to the idea to break God's moral law. And the devil decided on the way of deception, lies and deceit. He deluded them as to intentions by dressing up the worst way of being in the garb of the better life.

In the Christian religion, Satan is always represented as the tempter and executor of the punishment, as well as the head of the fallen angels. In Islam, Satan is called al-Shaytan (the demon) who is the tempter. It is associated with the malign desire and has the power to lead people astray making them do evil.

The image of Satan as the Supreme ruler of the kingdom of evil and the antagonist of the forces of light is an integral and necessary element of the doctrine that creates the basis for further comparison between good and evil, determining criteria for the evaluation of human motives and actions and the comparison of religious doctrines.

There is an opinion that the devil was created by God, but it is a pseudodox. Gracious, righteous and loving God could not create such an evil and treacherous being. The devil or Satan was the result of the moral decline of one of the Angels whose name was Lucifer, which is literally translated as a light-bringer or son of the dawn.
