Kyle Valentine — The Rise/Fall of Lucifer

"The true and pure philosophic religion is the belief in Lucifer, God of Light and God of Good, struggling for humanity against Adonay, the God of Darkness and Evil." 
-The 1894 anti-Masonic text 'La Femme et l'enfant dans la franc-maçonnerie universelle'

This part 1 of a 3 painting series, based on Satanism, and other religious beliefs.

I am a Laveyan Satanist, if not Atheist, as it is a religion which preaches respect. Respect of ones self, respect towards others and what opinions, and beliefs which they may hold, etc. It's basically a religion based of common sense, but of course we needed a particular deity to represent it, if we needed it to be a "religion".

I personally truly believe in the rise of Lucifer. The Lightbringer. Such a wisdom filled name for such a "villainous" character, don't ya think? I say this because, we as humans, are growing. We're growing up, and it's time to put aside childish things. We are growing more self aware, of not only ourselves, but those and everything around us. And in order for us to take the next step on our evolutionary journey, we need to forget about the things which we created as a substitute for the answers we did not have then, as we do have them now. For it did nothing but divide us. Drove us to resent one another, rather than to connect and grow.
