""Lucifer" in Isaiah refers to a mortal king, not to Satan. The prophet was making fun a mortal king's pretentiousness. Nowhere in Scripture is Satan actually called "Lucifer". That is a bit of human mythology."

Cordell D. replied to Josh Billings's discussion KJV vs. NIV in the group Christian Men
"Exactly. I find it odd that the writers of the KJV used the Latin name for the planet Venus in Isaiah, but not in Revelation. Why did they use the Latin word at all? Even if you think Isaiah 14:12 is about Satan, why would his original name be…"

I like to post my answers in a thread, to our topical discussions; so I'll put my thoughts here, and invite others to do the same.  The topic, I believe, is moral relativism.The part I want to comment on right now is Dallas's comment, "Why does a moral law giver have to be God?"  It's worth answering, at least partlyPeople can give moral laws without being God.  The question is, are they the right moral laws.  I say it's wrong to kill people for being Jewish, Herr Hitler said it was right --…See More
