Lucifer, Devil, Demon…?

I would like to know why those words have been changed into something that they were not.

Lucifer is the bringer of light, a lightbearer. And… now people call him/her/it the devil and evil because of religion. How interesting.

Then there’s the word “devil” which originated from the word “devi” and that means “God”…

“Demon” in Greek means guardian spirit. Again, it somehow got flipped around because of religion. I wonder why. What reason is there to change meanings of words and then make the vast majority of people believe a lie?

Those 3 terms do not have meanings related to evil or Hell or any of that. But somehow, all 3 are now evil. Now that I know this, everytime someone uses those kinds of labels, I am automatically not going to believe them. It is messed up to lie to millions of people. About words.

    Lucifer was the devil because he felt he was better than God, a god himself, and tried to “overthrow” him or something like that. Then he later became know as a the devil. idk about the demon part though
