There is too much forced interpretation over Lucifer as some Christians have
Satan on the brain! Further it is hardly a literal interpretation, just a
confused and irresponsible misuse of Scripture.

Below is another non-literal gross misuse of scripture from AIG. Can anyone
tell me where it says in Gen 3 God killed an animal for a sacrifice? Which
verse?. This is simply fanciful misreading and eisegesis

From latest AIG Answersupdate.
Q: Don't we have to read the New Testament to find out about the gospel of
Jesus Christ?

A: In our children's book A is for Adam, we have a picture of
Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden clothed in lamb's wool. Beside
them is a slain lamb.

This drawing is based on the passage in Genesis where we're told that,
because of sin, God made coats of skins and clothed Adam and Eve. God killed
an animal to provide the first blood sacrifice because of sin. This is a
picture of what was to come in Jesus Christ, 'the lamb of God who takes away
the sin of the world.' Because of sin, God brought death into the world.

The only way for man to come back to God was for a perfect man to
suffer death and pay the penalty for sin. God sent His only Son to
become a man so that He could die and be raised from the dead. In that way,
those who trust in Him will be saved for eternity.

The shedding of blood and the clothing of Adam and Eve is a picture of the
gospel. If Christians don't believe Genesis is literal history-then the
gospel is not to be taken literally either.
