The Real Reason Lucifer Rebelled

FACT: Word has it that the next most powerful being nexted to God is Lucifer.

FACT: God is said to have created Lucifer.

FACT: God is said to be all knowing.

FACT: As the story goes, Lucifer and 1/3 of the angels rebelled against God and a big war in heaven broke out.

The all knowing God had to have seen this rebellion coming. God caused the war in heaven.

FACT: As the story goes, Lucifer's motivation for rebelling was brought on by God ordering him to bow to Adam.

This doesn't make sense. Didn't the all knowing God know that Lucifer was a megalomaniac like him? God should have known that this would have rubbed Lucifer who by the way, Lucifer was God's favorite angel, the wrong way?

Perhaps Lucifer rebelled for honorable reasons? Let's look at the facts. Lucifer is nearly as intelligent and as powerful as God his creator. Was Lucifer's ego greater than his intellect? Not likely but pride, jealousy and ego are the reasons given for Lucifer's tiff with God but this makes no sense. What did Lucifer have to envy? Adam was mortal and he and Eve were thought slaves to God. The were nothing more than God's pets. God knew that and so did Lucifer, after all Lucifer is the next closest thing to God.



Perhaps knowing the plight of humankind and knowing all the suffering humans would endure Lucifer said, "Enough is enough!" and decided to do something about it. Perhaps Lucifer was an animal lover and saw a future of animals suffering and dying in God's system of predator and prey and kill or be killed model? Animals did nothing wrong yet God saw fit to give them the same biting maladies that he had planned to inflict upon humans for being "tricked" by a talking snake? If you think about it logically it pretty much looks like Lucifer and his angels are not only good guys but are heroic figures. They were outnumbered and outgunned yet they fought the good fight. This is a bit like soldiers from the Northern states sacrificing their lives to free people that they didn't even know and by the way, the slave owner used the Bible to justify slavery and all its cruelty and injustice. Lucifer and his legions were even more courageous than the Union soldiers because they had their immortality to lose and their chances of victory were slim and none.



As the story goes, humans will be tortured in hell or destroyed for not believing in Jesus, yet Lucifer and 1/3 of all the angels set out to kill God and Lucifer and his angels were assigned the task of punishing the wicked and non believers in hell for all eternity. As the story goes God loves his children; but clearly he plays favorites. He gave all his angels blissful lives unearned while setting the bar unreasonably high for his other children and punishes ALL all of them for a mistake by two people, Adam and Eve and BTW, Eve was framed.

Maybe, just maybe, Lucifer is the good guy.
