I learned a new word

Postby Wolfsong » Wed Jun 22, 2016 8:51 pm

*randomly finds myself looking up Luciferianism*
...I feel like I'm staring at a mix of Buddhism and something else whose name I can't recall.
"Show me thy ways, O Lord; teach me thy paths. Lead me in thy truth, and teach me: for thou art the God of my salvation; on thee do I wait all the day." Psalm 25:4-5

"Turn thee unto me, and have mercy upon me; for I am desolate and afflicted.
The troubles of my heart are enlarged: O bring thou me out of my distresses.
Look upon mine affliction and my pain; and forgive all my sins.
Consider mine enemies; for they are many; and they hate me with cruel hatred.
O keep my soul, and deliver me: let me not be ashamed; for I put my trust in thee.
Let integrity and uprightness preserve me; for I wait on thee.
Redeem Israel, O God, out of all his troubles." Psalm 25: 16-22

According to Google, it means nothing in particular. In many more words.

... that finale scene in Devil Survivor 2 where Lucifer fights Satan makes so much more sense now. >_<

Not sure what you mean with the comparison to Buddhism, but indeed, it has no specific dogma and many of its "adherents" do not view it as a religion (which seems to me to really just be arrogance and people not knowing the meanings of words, like when some Protestants insist they do not follow a religion) but as a "rebellion." Neckbeards being extra "edgy," sounds like.

Just because it ends in -ism doesn't automatically mean there's some kind of dogma centered around it.

When someone says "I don't follow a religion" they follow the religion of not following religion. (irony)
Galatians 3:13 NIV: Christ redeemed us from the curse of the law by becoming a curse for us, for it is written: “Cursed is everyone who is hung on a pole.”

Luke 6:31 NIV (The Golden Rule): Do to others as you would have them do to you.

“Too much of anything is dangerous, unless it's God's Love.”

I thought there was a schism in my favorite kind of ism, but it really wasn't too bad, it was just some plagiarism.
