Lucifer’s Spoils
(Chinese version in English) One sunny day Wong and his wife Ling were planning on going camping. Wong brought his nephew, Chow, and his niece, Ming. They were all excited to share this experience together. As they arrived at the woods they unloaded the car.
“We should hurry, for we only have so much sunlight left,” said Wong.
They hiked for three miles paying close attention to the GPS. They found where they wanted to set up camp at for the night. Wong went out to gather wood for a fire, Ling and the kids stayed and set up camp, As time passed, Wong started to get a bad vibe about the woods. Ming screamed when she walked into a spider web. Thirteen giant spiders slowly walked toward her. Wong arrived in a hurry. He grabbed one of his sticks and fought them off. After he defeated the spiders, he checked on Ming to see if she was okay. Neither of them had seen spiders of such size. As it was getting dark outside, Wong tried to carry on the night eating, joking, and telling stories around the fire.
Wong was dead silent because he still had a bad feeling about these woods. He told his family he would be back and that he had to use the restroom. He then went roaming around the woods and thought he saw a flash of movement ahead of him. Wong tripped and fell over something, about 50 yards away from camp. He looked around and discovered it was an old cemetery with a skeleton. It was half way buried with its finger pointing behind him. So he turned around and saw bodies nailed to the trees that formed in a circle. In the center he saw a pentagram with a bull skull and a human skull inside.
Wong realized that Lucifer, otherwise known as “Wu-Tang”, was standing right before him. Wong simply asks,
“What do you want from me?”
Wu-Tang looked at him and said,
“If you wish to live, you have one night to give me one soul. If you do not bring me a…...

Short Essay 4 Satanology

...The Bible teaches that Satan is a created being. He was originally created as one of God’s angels, possessing all of the attributes of an angel, the power of personality and the freedom of choice. He let his pride get in the way of reason and he convinced himself that he was worthy of God’s throne and glory. He also failed to believe that if he committed a sin that God would punish him. He rebelled and God punished him by casting him out of heaven along with the angels who rebelled with him. In Isaiah 14:12-17, we are given some insight into the fall of Satan and his subsequent banishment from God’s presence. “You said in your heart, I will raise my throne above the stars of God… I will make myself like the Most High” Isaiah 14:13-14. Lucifer’s sin wasn’t just his pride but also his disbelief that God would punish any kind of sin. He convinced himself that he could really take the throne of God. In Ezekiel 28 we see God’s reaction to the King of Tyre when he, with the same attitude as Satan, viewed himself as being divine. Most people probably wouldn’t see the significance of these passages. Instead they choose to believe that even though God may be the Creator, somehow Satan is equal in power and ability. Anytime created beings think of themselves as equal to the Creator, there are problems that come with that thought process. “For by Him all things were created; things in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or powers or rulers or authorities; all......

Angelology and Satanology

...of Anna’s argument of God creating evil. The Bible tells specifically about the origin and destiny of Satan and how this is a contradiction to the idea that God could create evil. Satan was, like man, created with individual personality and freedom of choice. Ezekiel 28 talks about God describing Lucifer (Satan) and his creation, “I ordained and anointed you as the mighty angelic guardian. You had access to the holy mountain of God and walked among the stones of fire. You were blameless in all you did from the day you were created until the day evil was found in you.” Ezekiel 28-14-15 (NLT). This alludes to the fact that Satan was created by God yet evil began with him alone and not with God. Isaiah 14:12-17 describes the reason for Lucifer’s (Satan) fall from grace. The fact that God created Satan with free will or freedom of choice led him to become very arrogant and prideful toward God and even led him to think he could overthrow God and take His throne. “For you said to yourself, ‘I will ascend to heaven and set my throne above God’s stars. I will preside on the mountain of the gods far away in the north. I will climb to the highest heavens and be like the Most High.” Isaiah 14:13 (NLT). [3] ​For me these two passages show that God created a being in Lucifer and gave him great responsibility and power. And because Lucifer (Satan) was created by God, he could not be God or even come close. The pride Satan developed within himself led to his fall and ultimately his......

...How it came To Be That Too Many Cooks Spoil the Broth: A Study into the Problems of Ill-Defined Property Rights “Resources are limited, whereas Human wants are unlimited. Economics is the study of how people utilize these goods as to get the highest level of satisfaction.” These are few of the very first words of wisdom every novel economist has to learn. Further on in his pursue of knowledge he is explained; In organizations conflict often revolves around common resources as they are critical for influence, power, performance and even organizational survival. A commons is a shared resource for which access to users is not restricted, and use of the resource subtracts from the other users’ benefit. As first introduced by Hardin in 1968 in his work “The tragedies of the commons”; the very existence of common resources surfaces a very different kind of a problem. When many people have the privilege to use a commons resource and no one user has the right to exclude another, not only is conflict likely, but tragedies of resource inefficiency and exhaustion emerge. Considering that a primary goal of any organization is to use resources effectively and efficiently to achieve its goals, conflict involving commons resources can pose a significant threat to an organization’s performance. To resolve (and even avoid) the tragedy of the commons, a pleura of solutions have been proposed by leading economists. One popular solution suggested by the property rights, territoriality, and......

I pray in the name of Jesus that we don’t end-up miserable at the end of our lives. When you work as a minister, don’t do it because of any other thing rather than being faithful and truthful to the one that called us. I have determined that whatever it will take, I will make God happy for choosing and sending me to do this work. Anything contrary to this, the end will be bad. I will like to say something that it is very unfortunate; that somebody left God’s place [God created all men and women, so we are all products of heaven] and came to this world; and yet ended up in lucifer’s place. This is unfortunate! It is even more unfortunate to call such a person a Christian who has testified to be born-again sometime; and at the end of the day, he cannot return to God whom he has confessed to be his Saviour and Lord. It is rather unfortunate! CHAPTER 2: THE ACCIDENT...

...------------------------------------------------- too many cooks spoil the broth ------------------------------------------------- It means that if too many people try to do the same thing, they end up ruining it. If you have too many cooks trying to cook one broth or soup, they get in each other's way and end up adding the wrong things.  It means that a simple thing like a broth (or a movie script) is better when it doesn't have many authors contributing to it.  If more than one cook handles one pot of soup the ingredients like salt, for example, may be doubled or tripled (according to how many cooks handle the pot) thus spoiling it. Too many people trying to do the same thing together are likely to ruin the job. if too many people are involved in something it often gets too complicated. if its used it means that some people need to back off When too many people take charge on a task, it might end up ruining the whole thing.

I have three simple points that will persuade your roommate to put food away and keep the kitchen clean after he is finished. These are simple points that are easy to understand but still are valiant in an argument. The three points are as follow: 1. Leaving food out will attract ants and other unwanted guest into the house, 2. Food left out unattended will spoil and if consumed will lead to someone getting sick, and 3. Food that has spoiled will get thrown away and funds will be spent to replace it. Leaving food out will attract ants and other bugs into the house. The last thing anyone would want is to have bugs crawling all over their home.

Historical View of Satan's Fall

...his heart was filled with pride (Ezekiel 28:17). He began to think highly of himself and began to think wrongly of God. He began to take what rightfully belonged to God and began to put himself in God’s place. For the first time in all creation, one of his own had sinned against him. God judged him accordingly and placed him in the lake of fire (Matthew 25:41). The sacred scriptures tell us that after the fall, Lucifer was thereafter known as the Devil or the accuser. One question that remains to be answered is this: when did this event occur? Some theologians claim that Satan’s fall occurred before Genesis 1:1. Others contend that there was a gap that took place between Genesis 1:1 and Genesis 1:2. Yet others make the claim that Lucifer’s fall took place between Genesis 2 and Genesis 3. Little scriptural evidence exists to answer the question of when the fall happened. Some suggest the silence of scripture on this topic is done on purpose by Moses to protect the newly faithful Israelites. The purpose of this paper is to look at the evidence supporting each theory and the evidence against each theory. At the conclusion all of the evidence will be compared and one theory will be shown as stronger then the others. This paper will show that although little evidence exists, the fall of Lucifer most likely occurred between Genesis two and Genesis three. Gap Theory- Genesis 1:1 and Genesis 1:2 The premise of the gap theory states that the fall of Satan fell in the......

Works of Literature Are Often Layered and May Require Close Attention to Discover Their Depth and Complexity. with Respect to Doctor Faustus I Will Show His Valid Views.

...the powers from God can be limitless. Faustus never rose to a level of true wickedness but simply lived a life of meaningless petty bullying.  He never accomplished any marvelous works that would be a significance to anyone, not even himself. Was this worth the price he would pay for eternal damnation? He was given many opportunities to repent and be forgiven but because of his foolish pride he was unable to do so.  This play was a power struggle between goon and evil and of the tormenting of a mind and soul. Faustus was tormented by his decision to turn his back on God but too proud to admit it and ask for forgiveness. Eternal damnation was and is the price of human pride.   Faustus idolized Mephistophilis and the fact that he was Lucifer’s right hand man.  When Faustus questioned Mephistophilis about why he's on earth his response was that hell is on earth too.  The minds and souls of people are not only tormented in eternal hell but hell is a state of being that anyone can fall into.  It's the struggle between good and evil. It's the decisions we make everyday. We all have a good angel on one shoulder and a bad one on the other.  We have fee will to choose who we will listen to. The play is full of supernatural beings like angels, devils, dragons and black magic.  Faustus chose to befriend only the evil spirits until the end.  "Sweet friends what shall become of Faustus being in hell forever" as Faustus spoke to the scholars who came to him at the end and throughout the...

...defiance to its core tenets” (Discovery News). It can be safely assumed then, that Beyonce would have received some sort of punishment for defying the society, however her career, dignity, and general livelihood have seen only prosperity in the recent months. Then again, one of these blessings the has been bestowed upon the couple is their daughter, named Blue Ivy. Could it be that Jay-Z and Beyonce, being incredibly rich and popular, have bought into the celebrity trend of strange names? Of course not, say theorists. Instead, Blue Ivy is a code word said to mean Born Living Under Evil, Illuminati’s Very Youngest, and, perhaps even more incriminating, Blue Ivy spelled backwards (Eulb Yvi) allegedly translates from Latin to mean “Lucifer’s Daughter” (IlluminatiWatcher.com). Oddly enough, “Elub Yvi” actually doesn’t translate to anything; these words have absolutely no meaning in Latin, according to the online Latin dictionary. And so the pop culture references continue, but with increasingly unrealistic “proof”. Without considering this blatant lack of evidence, we are led to believe that the world is run by a group of 13 extremely wealthy and influential inbred men, descendants of half-breeds with extra-terrestrial blood coursing through their bodies, who control our world through the use of Black Magic. If that doesn’t convince you, “proof” can be seen in everyday occurrences such as the dollar bill and the Superbowl halftime show, as well as countless other......

The Origin of Sin

...God. I’ll do my own thing in my own way for my own glory.") | Is P R I D E a problem in our world today? Is this same sin in the hearts of men today? Are there men who have a problem with SELF-WILL?  Is there any person who does not have a problem with SELF-WILL? Are there people who have a spirit of INDEPENDENCE?   In what forms does this thinking display itself in our world today?  Let us consider the five "I WILLS" of Lucifer as found in Isaiah 14:13-14: 1) "I WILL ASCEND INTO HEAVEN." Lucifer wanted to mount up or scale to the heavens. He desired to occupy the highest heavens:  to probe, and to penetrate the kingdom of the infinite God. He wanted to have a very HIGH position! 2) "I WILL EXALT MY THRONE ABOVE THE STARS OF GOD." Lucifer’s position and service before God’s throne was not enough. He wanted a throne from which he could exercise final authority and make decisions pertaining to the angelic host ("the stars of God"). He wanted to rule over all the angels. God had made him an exalted angel, but Lucifer wanted to be exalted even more. (He was not content to shine as the "morning star";  he wanted to shine as the star of stars--with a brilliance that would far outshine all the other stars (even as the sun’s brightness makes all the other stars fade away so that you cannot even see them during daylight hours). 3) "I WILL SIT ALSO UPON THE MOUNT OF THE CONGREGATION." He desired to sit or be enthroned in the highest place having all the angelic assemblies in......

God and the Devil

...similar when under the influence of these two entities. They both use your mind to inspire pure emotion. The key thing for humans to remember is identifying when you are being encouraged by either God or the Lucifer. If you stop and really think about it, identifying when you’re being encouraged is not hard to figure out at all. When your conchence bothers you, God is triggering your mind to stop and think about the things you have said and the actions you are about to take. God causes you to have the nessary thought and emotion to examine if there are evil intentions in your heart. Lucifer once again uses the same method. Have you ever been at work and somebody or something makes you unbelievably angry? You are in danger from what I call Lucifer’s whisper. Humans become so enraged they make the wrong decisions and make the wrong judgment. Like God, Lucifer puts the whisper in your ear and you begin to think about it or brood over it. The thoughts then travel to the heart and then come out in a person’s actions. Humans will then make their choice and either do evil works or good works. The objectives of God and Lucifer are they each want you to follow their path. Though they have different plans for humanity they both want your soul for eternity. Then end result is different for each path. Humans have a free will choice between an eternity of bliss and an eternity of torment. The methods in which they spread their will are very different. God would have you accept him and......

Meaningful Life and Its Meaning

...only possible to disentangle them with a lot of difficulty in some areas of life such as love. I most religions it is assumed that one must adhere to all-encompassing purpose that fills one's whole existence and single grand for one to live a meaningful life. Thinking that human beings can cope to attain meaning by exercising individual values and purposes seems plausible, if prior purposiveness or the plan of some superior being reveals the meaning of life (Singer). Lucifer rejects the divine plan by not giving meaning to one's life. In our imagination, he could be arguing that eternal acquiescence and totality would have prevented him from creating a meaningful life of his own. We are tempted to think that the reason God is tolerating Lucifer's rebellion is as a result of divine recognition that living creatures have to make their meaningful life. In a nutshell, creative is the only genuinely meaningful existence. Creative describes what might be seen as a "highway" to a meaningful life, without invocation of any supernatural sanction. Most people thought of themselves as imaginative have insisted that creativity justifies why they exist. In this case creativity is not limited only to acts of genius or artistic production. This is an acknowledgment of life-sustaining character of imagination by singer. We, therefore, agree as human beings that life is not meaningful unless it is imaginative. In other words, unless life is repetitive, routine, gratifies our sensations......

Viking Invaders in Ireland

...He learns the concept of companionship by reading and teaching himself. After that he tracks down Frankenstein and asks for a mate so he can be at peace with Frankenstein and himself. Even Robert Walton experiences loneliness even when he is surrounded by many sailors. He feels this way up until he rescues Frankenstein. Walton feels that a connection between the two emerges while Frankenstein tells him his story and that he is a friend. Unfortunately, Frankenstein dies and Walton is deeply saddened by this but not as much as the monster for it knows that he will never connect with any being ever. The most prominent allusions come from a poem written by John Milton which is called Paradise Lost and in this poem, it tells the story of Lucifer’s treachery and how he gets revenge on God and his fellow angels with his scheming plot. After losing the war with God, Lucifer is banished to Pandemonium where he plans to corrupt God’s creation Adam and Eve. After Lucifer successfully tricks the couple, God banishes the two from Eden their home, and even though they beg for forgiveness, God does not pay them any mind. In the novel, the monster compares himself to Adam after reading the poem and tries to use this to convince Frankenstein to feel sympathy for him. The monster tells Frankenstein that he is “…thy creature; I ought to be thy Adam, but I am rather the fallen angel"(Shelly 87), trying to make him feel bad for not caring for him and just abandoning him. He is also implying......

How Has Milton’s Paradise Lost Shaped Modern Depictions of Lucifer?

...to Milton’s Paradise Lost and I will discuss multiple ways that Lucifer has become integrated into modern popular culture. From DC Comics’ Lucifer Morningstar to Walter White in Breaking Bad, I will show how Milton’s Paradise Lost has shaped modern depictions of the devil. Milton’s Lucifer was seemingly created from the influence of the Italian Renaissance devils of Giambattista Marino and Torquato Tasso. Lucifer’s ‘prissy disdain for earth’ and hatred of man in Tasso’s Gerusalemme Liberta helped form Milton’s depiction of the character. Philip Beitchman suggests that ‘Milton saw Satan’s contempt for man formed from dust’, drawn from such lines as ‘Man, man the vile, born of vile mud’. This hatred is exemplified by Milton in the words ‘Woe to the inhabitants on Earth!’ paraphrasing the New Testament verse of Revelations 12:12. Beitchman suggests that Lucifer’s hatred is fuelled by the purpose of man, claiming that ‘it was standard wisdom that man was created to supply the place of fallen angels’. If man was created to replace him, then we can perhaps understand Lucifer’s disdain towards them in Paradise Lost. We ought to look towards Marino’s La strage degli innocent, in which he ‘renders [Lucifer as] sad, pathetic and humanly sympathetic’to support this understanding of his hatred. However, ‘where Marino allows us ‘sympathy for the devil’ it is Milton who compounds this affect with a dimension of moral grandeur and ‘infernal’ sublimity’. I believe that Milton’s Lucifer......
