|63-year-old entertainer, Charles Oputa Jr. aka Charly Boy claims he's Lucifer|
63-year-old entertainer, Charles Oputa Jr. aka Charly Boy, is no stranger to controversies. For a long time, the controversial entertainer has been feeding his followers on various social media platforms ‘shocking’ images of himself and that of his so-called angels.
Yesterday [Mar. 11], Charly Boy who would turn 64 in three months’ time (June 19 precisely) took to social media, posted couple of images and captioned one of these pictures, “I am Lucifer”.
The church believes ‘Lucifer’ is another word for Satan/Devil, but that was before he lost his glory and place in heaven as a 'Fallen Angel'. Lucifer also means, “Morning Star” or “The planet Venus when appearing as the morning star”.
As an adjective, the Latin word Lucifer meant "light-bringing" and was applied to the moon. As a noun, it meant "morning star", or, in Roman mythology, its divine personification as "the fabled son of Aurora and Cephalus.
Indications that in Christian tradition the Latin word Lucifer, unlike the English word, did not necessarily call a fallen angel to mind exist also outside the text of the Vulgate. Two bishops bore that name: Saint Lucifer of Cagliari, and Lucifer of Siena.
See below what Charly Boy he had to say about calling himself Lucifer:
I Am, Lucifer.No come dey frown face as if you be winche. As you don hear Lucifer now, e dey be you like make you take off? Sometimes I wonder, What's really is in a name.Yea! Sometimes a name could be such a big deal. Am sure you've heard the phase "As pious as a Pope", but sometimes some of the Popes ain't all that, abi? As gentle and peaceful as Jesus, who really thought his followers Love and tolerance.Now,when you hear the name Lucifer nko? All negative things come to mind, like demons, Satan, evil, wickedness, name it. However, such mindset is as laughable as it is ridiculous and nonsensical.Now, let me bring light to the hidden things of darkness. The task is a laborious one but it is neither impracticable nor useless, just a way of sharing this Truth on somethings hidden by the darkness of prejudice and ignorance.The ignorant erroneously believes that Lucifer = Satan, has struck its roots too deep in the soil of blind faith, to allow many people to bravely, boldly, and unashamedly accept the true origins and true nature of what the so-called Lucifer actually is. Those who attempt to do so are always bound to be immediately labelled as “satanists” and “devil worshippers” like Us, by a certain class of Christian, those whose trademark characteristics invariably tend to be wilful ignorance and mental laziness.It has indeed become a “branded name,” one which still automatically conjures up the image of an anthropomorphic devil even in the minds of the most hardened atheists. Haba, e don do.Consider these few points.
“Lucifer” literally means Lightbringer, Lightbearer, Bringer of Dawn, Shining One, or Morning Star. The word has no other meaning. Historically and astronomically. The word “Lucifer” occurs only once in the entire Bible. This is in Isaiah 14:12, which says: “How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! how art thou cut down to the ground, which didst weaken the nations!” Those who read this verse in its actual context will clearly see that the sentence is applied specifically to a certain Babylonian king who was an enemy in war of the Israelites.Christianity does not have a monopoly on the term “Lucifer” nor on its definition. The Christian concept and definition of the term “Lucifer” is merely the latest in a long line of definitions and interpretations of this pre-Christian-termAll of this, so fucking what Charly?Christians who claim that Lucifer is the devil actually have no Biblical basis or authority for such a belief. Though they may claim to be “Bible believing Christians” whose faith is built solely on “the Word of God” they are actually followers – in this and many other respects – of Christian religious tradition and not of the Christian Bible. Or have they quietly conferred divine infallibility upon their Pastors, Prayer warriors, and Man of God.Yes, I am Lucifer and am Proud.
