That's a very fair point that I hadn't really considered 🤔 It still doesn't look great to an outside observer. Remember how I said that I found this site through Google? Those sorts of things could potentially be seen by a curious non-Christian and be driven away by it, not realizing what you're saying. I do appreciate that extra perspective and input, though. And, thanks =D
The thing about religion, Lunar, is if you do something different you are suggesting others are doing it wrong. That is the nature of the animal. Like Gregory has pointed out, Satan (Lucifer) has had his way with Christian dogma. Gregory would even get an argument for mentioning the name Lucifer in BDF. I think modern Christianity is finding its way back to the truth, despite millennia of false teachings. I believe that was in prophecy:

Daniel 12:4 "But thou, O Daniel, shut up the words, and seal the book, even to the time of the end: many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall be increased."

"You can be right and still be wrong." This is something I was thinking about just a couple hours ago while making sermon notes for tonight. I can be correct on my standpoint, have 97 Bible verses to back it up - 97 verses IN CONTEXT even, not yanked out of context and twisted - and still be wrong if I argue it angry and lose a brother over it.

Unfortunately some people value "I'm right!" over everything else. Best thing to do is ignore them and move on to some more edifying discussion, or at least something more amusing.

Like this. This is a really good thread to move on to.
