Lucifer - a fallen angel??
After hearing Rook mention that the orgin of the 'Satan was a fallen angel' story had originated from the Qu'ran (correct me if I'm wrong in hearing that throught the RRS chat...) I decided to ask my crazy extremeist theist co-worker about it - this way she could try and supply me with a passge in the Bible that says 'Satan was a fallen angel'. So she supplied me with the following:
Isaiah 14:12 - How you are fallen from heaven, O Day Star, son of Dawn! How you are cut down to the ground, who laid the nations low!
She also mentioned that Lucifer comes from the Latin term meaning 'Light-bearer'.
Does anyone have a good explanation for this particular passage? Because quite frankly it confused me (but that's what I get for starting to read in the middle of a book). I read through chapter 14 once over my lunch break, but my brain couldn't process it with the lack of 'food'. Hmmm.... comments?
