... the perspective. It is NOT the perspective of Christians.
When a Christian hears that someone worships Lucifer, they automatically assume that the person is worshiping Satan, i.e. the Devil, i.e. evil forces.
But that is not the perspective of the Luciferians. What THEY think is that the Christian god is not the highest god. They do think the Christian god exists, and that is why they can claim they believe, but they think there is a HIGHER god, the "Light Bearer," which they call Lucifer. They think Satan is just a term used to describe chaos, not evil.
Most members of the Masonic lodges think it is a fun club, nothing more. They do not realize their dues go towards the higher level members who have bizarre ideology.
Masonry is not INHERENTLY Luciferian, as it was originally a club that journeymen could join to learn a trade during a time when you were either in the noble class, the serf class, or a slave. Becoming a tradesman was a way out for the non-nobles.
Masonry became infiltrated and corrupted by people who wanted to use it to build their power base, and some of them were into (are into) Luciferian ideology, in the sense that this Lucifer character is the highest of all gods.
That's my understanding of what THEY believe, even though I think it is ALL crap, and just a tool used to control the minds of others.
