According to many Anti-Catholics the Pope Praise Lucifer. Because there is a video posted on social media that the Pope Singing and saying the word “Lucifer” in Vatican.
Is that correct? Let us answer:
The word Lucifer in the video is Latin in English “Morning Star”. Obviously, the Language in the Vatican is Latin.
Let us read the 2 Peter 1:19 in Latin Vulgate (Latin Bible).
et habemus firmiorem propheticum sermonem cui bene facitis adtendentes quasi lucernae lucenti in caliginoso loco donec dies inlucescat et LUCIFER oriatur in cordibus vestris. (2 Petri 1’19, LATIN VULGATE)
It is very clear that the word “Lucifer” in Latin is biblical and that Lucifer is the “morning star” in English. Who is that Lucifer or Morning Star? Let us read in English Translation.
So we have seen and proved that what the prophets said came true. You will do well to pay close attention to everything they have written, for, like lights shining into dark corners, their words help us to understand many things that otherwise would be dark and difficult. But when you consider the wonderful truth of the prophets’ words, then the light will dawn in your souls and CHRIST THE MORNING STAR will shine in your hearts. ( 2 Peter 1:19, The Living Bible)
It is clear very that the word Lucifer does not always mean Lucifer the devil. Another verse.
When the MORNING STARS sang together, and all the sons of God shouted for joy? (JOB 38:7, KJV)
“And I will give him THE MORNING STAR.” (Revelation 2:28, KJV )
I Jesus have sent mine angel to testify unto you these things in the churches. I am the root and the offspring of David, and the bright and morning star. THE BRIGHT AND MORNING STAR (Revelation 22:16, KJV)
Always remember before you make an accusation make sure that you know something about Latin. “You shall not bear false witness against your neighbor. – (Exodus 20:16)
