The first question of the day is actually a follow-up to my post a few days ago's note about spiritual politics.
How dependent are spirit politics upon humans? Does how much of a
presence depend how many believers they have (lets say before and
after rise of Christianity)?
What's the difference between angels, demons, and deities?
To explain further, spirits like Lucifer are often considered to be demons by Christians, but in other religious views, Lucifer is not a demon, but is instead a God. Lillith, on the other hand, doesn't frequently get elevated to a position other than sand demon or succubus.
Interestingly, when Lucifer forgoes the name, title, and respective form, He becomes something else entirely and does not seem to be bound to a specific "class" of spirit. Instead, He walks between pantheons and distinctions at His whim.
Angels like Michael, Gabriel, Auriel, Haniel, and so on, however, are bound to a specific Abrahamic pantheon and can be accessed by practitioners involved in any one of the three parent religions that fall under that banner (Islam, Christianity, or Judaism).
The question above can also be extended to include djinn, wights, yokai, yakshas, dakanas, dakinis, ettins, jotnar, and so on and so forth. They are each, for the most part, wildly different and varied, just as we are. They each belong to their own cultural structures which may vary from tribe to tribe.
That's all for now.
