Error in the book, The Search For Significance

EXEGESIS: Satan (שָׂטָן Standard Hebrew Satan, Greek σατᾶν sátan) # And Lucifer

--- On page 21 of the book, The Search For Significance, I noticed the slight error of purporting the “universal myth” that Satan and Lucifer are one and the same as commonly taught in ecclesial tradition---that is to say as passed down through churches, in Sunday School classes from childhood on---so I thought I would be brief, in shedding light, on this linguistic error rather than theological error:

--- I’d like to start by saying whether one believes that Satan and Lucifer are one and the same or not has no effect on one’s salvation, but it is important to study biblical knowledge in depth nonetheless

--- <--- This website explains the error as believed by the heretical and biblio-idolatrous “King James Version Only” Cult

---  (heylel, hay-lale'; from Strongs # 1984 (In the sense of brightness); the morning-star:--Lucifer.) <--- The Hebrew from which the Latin Vulgate translation of the Bible renders “Lucifer.” Lucifer was a title for the King of Babylon.

That's just a brief note I wrote for a small group I was involved in.
