The Lord of Lies: Lucifer by arktiari The Lord of Lies: Lucifer by arktiari
...I kinda felt like doing a Lucifer piece. I kinda saw him as this beautiful, androgenous, charming and lonely man. Beautiful and androgenous because he was of course once an angel-the most beautiful one, charming because he is the lord of lies and deceit, lonely because beneath all the mischievous grin he is still saddened and hurt from his fall from grace. I included the snake and the apple to symbolize his first successful temptation with man. I hope you guys like this one...

He reminds me of Lestat. The expression you gave him is perfect. :)

God is just, omnipotent, and incorruptible. He's done miracles and wonders to help your forefathers. Like a father, God shows concern for you.

The kind of father that loves to use the belt, maybe. Have you ever even READ the Bible?

By "still saddened and hurt from his fall from grace," do you mean he feels bad about what he did or something else?

...I really don't know. I guess I based this guy from Neil Gaiman's "Murder Mysteries" short story. I guess when it comes to him, everyone has their own interpretations. Thanks for the comment...

Lucifer rebelled because of his beauty and hubris. He believed that he is as high as or even higher than God that 1/3 of the angels had been led astray by the former archangel's words. The moment that they rebelled against God they allowed themselves to be sent to Hell as punishment for rebelling against the Almighty Father. And if you believe that His' rules are overbearing; and your ways are better, think again.

But . . . his rules blatantly ARE overbearing. And anyone who doesn't rebel against the Christian god is brainwashed.

No…We're given the free will to decide. Since God showed us His love, along with His Son Jesus Christ, we choose to worship Him freely. God's love is unconditional. Satan, on the other hand, will give you what you want in exchange for being his brainwashed slave who thinks that "Do what thou wilt shall be the whole of law" gig is the only thing that matters in life. If that's the choice you're making, it's not my problem. It's yours.

He is not the lord of lies. "Lucifer" means "bringer of light" and all variations of the word "Satan" means "truth", "true creator" etc., in Sanskrit.

At all I have to praise you for your amazing talent in portraiting our amazing Father Satan!!! :D (Big Grin)

God has been in my life since I've accepted Jesus as my Savior. I felt God's presence in the form of:
1. me and my family being  able to get out of the Nirvana, my family's yacht, when it got a hole breached at the shores in Palawan.
2. being accompanied by one of my older cousins Nicanor Campos when I got lost at Hong Kong in New Year's Eve.
3. being able to manage throughout my grade school and previous high school years.
4. a comfortable life with my family.
5. self-control over personal struggles.
These are one of the things I can recall that God is with us, and He is good.

So good: Psalms 137:9 Happy shall he be, that taketh and dasheth thy babies against the stones.

You're so retarded that you just ignored all the information I had proofs your "god" is a psychopath. Jewsus doesn't exist either, this character was stolen from Bacchus. None of these alms you gained are gifts of "god" but hateful entities that NEEDS your adoration. No real god needs demanding adoration

You are deeply under a spell of Jew-hova. Satan gives real meaning and freedom in life and is the real creator of mankind, accept him then, he made for me 10,000 times better things than your poor alms you described: www.exposingchristianity.com/B…

2 Corinthians 11:14 "And no wonder, for Satan himself masquerades as an angel of light." What you think is truth from Satan is actually lies. P.S. Satan means "adversary" in Hebrew.

Well the bible is the book of lies. Yes, he is the adversary of the Hebrew people, the people of lies and enemies of makind, Satan means TRUTH in sanskrit, the eldest language of the Gentile peoples. Exposing Christianity: see_the_truth.webs.com

This is not what I "think", this is reality, your "god" does not exist and the endless contradictions in the bible proves so, but you are so led by fear that you cannot use rational thinking or even read the links, as this is so "real" god it must makes you fear him to believe him. No real God like Satan must threat his followers to believe him, science and rational thinking are enough to proof a truth.

It takes such an idiotic ‘god’ to create man with the capability to Sin, only to torture them later after doing it. Since he was all knowing, he knew beforehand they would sin, so he made them able to sin. If he did not know it, according to xian theology, he did not know everything and as thus he is no ‘god’.

Of course he is not. For one its nothing more than a jewish fantasy novel, where they have complete and total power everyone else in the globe, everyone is enslaved and such. How could the rambling of some kikes make sense? Lies do not make sense. Especially so big lies. How could they ever make sense?

Hahaha that's the best answer you can give due lack of contra-arguments? It's not me who believes in a book full of contradictions like the Lie-ble... I just showed the proofs and you ignore as you are a "gawd fearer", someone who needs fear to believe in your gawd which by itself show it's false....

By your statements you must be into Gnosticism and Satanism. Also, God allowed free will to happen; and Lucifer, because of his pride and vanity, believed he's equal, if not superior, to God. This instigated a rebellion led to his fall from Heaven, along with the other angels who joined him. While you call Satan a liberator, those who believe in God and His Son know him as the adversary and liar.

The moment I saw this, I thought of the art in Castlevania...which quickly made me go see what your favorite games are listed as...and would you know - Castlevania was one of them.

This blows my mind. I absolutely adore how you captured the essence of his character. And the style adds tremendously to its beauty.
