Being a Humble and Necessarily Incomplete Treatise On Satan

by M. Timmons

 

 

“Darkness is light turned inside out”—Beelzebub

THERE IS NO GOD BUT MYSELF

It is obvious that Satan is not the “deceiver of humanity.”

The concept of Satan as being an opponent of God and a chief evil figure in among demons.

Satan has seemed too unreal.

You possess a strong belief in a supernatural power or powers that control human destiny.

We are a group of sinful people; of satan.

Our Past is Being Systematically Destroyed!

The Original Gods [Demons] were unjustly labeled as monsters and branded as “evil” to keep humanity from spiritual knowledge.

From a literary perspective, demons must exist. If they didn’t, we’d have to invent them. They seem essential to so much of our storytelling—more essential, perhaps, than their goodly counterparts.

Those of you eager for the sweet sounds of SATAN can bide their time with the following steady stream of TESTIMONY.

Satan is happy to invade the empty vacuum of your soul and possess it. That is why people serve Satan without ever knowing it or deciding to.

For Example: Practicing yoga is Satanic, it leads to evil just like reading Harry Potter

Individuals do not have to give in to Satan’s temptations.

 

Yes, Satan is already abroad, and the Antichrist is already born, but he is still young. He must first grow up incognito before his power can become known.

Satan was allowed to set up his own kingdom in Hell and to send out devils to prowl the earth for converts. Satan, being a spirit, is neither male nor female. However, like his creator, Satan is usually referred to as a masculine being.

One of the more interesting aspects of Satanology is the recurring theme of humans making a pact with the devil. The Faust legend is the best-known of these: in exchange for one’s soul, Satan will bestow one with wealth or power for a specified time.

Satan is believed to have many powers, among them the power to manifest himself in human or animal form. The consorting has been recorded as often being purely physical and mostly sexual. For most of the history of Christianity there are reports of Satan having sex with humans, either as an incubus (male devil) or succubus (female devil). Witches and sorcerers were thought by many to be the offspring of such unions.

Apparently it took Satan a long time to figure out that if he wanted to control the world, the best way to do it would be to breed with humans. Invading our bodies would be more efficient and effective than trying to invade our minds. It must have occurred to many observers that the fear of Satan seems very much like fear of our own sexuality. Today, there are still those who believe Satan is a real being, but we hear few stories of incubi and succubi any more.

As the power of the Christian Church has waned, so too has the power of Satan. It is no accident that Satan reached the peak of his career at the same time the Church did, during the thirteenth century. During the Middle Ages, the Devil was said to have built Hadrian’s wall between Scotland and England, moved huge stones to construct megalithic stone circles and dolmens, built bridges such as that at Saint-Cloud and the Pont de Valentre at Cahors, for the price of the soul of the first one who crossed the bridge, etc. Satan could perform magic, but it must be remembered that the Christian religion is basically a religion of magic, of sacraments which protect one from Satan and which change bread and wine into Christ, of miracles which contravene the natural order for good or ill, of resurrection from the dead and of the promise of eternal life. Satan represents the obverse of that order: black magic, pacts with the devil, wonders done contravening the natural order, the promise of eternal youth and wondrous powers. The Satanic Order was the creation of the Church, necessary to establish its own power over the world. Heretics, witches and sorcerers were a threat to the world dominion of the Church. They had to be eradicated. As the enemies of the Church grew more numerous and more powerful, so did the reign of terror grow and so did the power of the Church get established more and more firmly.

The sadistic and monstrous behavior of the holy and pious inquisitors is almost enough to make a skeptic believe in Satan. The inquisitors were nothing short of diabolical.

As the power of Christianity waned as the dominant social and political force in western culture, so too did the power of Satan. By the eighteenth century, in Europe at least, witch and heretic burnings had all but ceased. Many theists today believe that the evils of today’s world, and they are many as we all know, are due to the rise of Satan and the decrease of religious influence. If they had their way, we would all be praying more and working against the snares of Satan.

Satanists have been blamed by pious Christians for ritual murders of children, mutilation and sacrificial killings of animals, writing backwards messages on musical recordings instructing people to kill, sending subliminal or secret messages through diabolical symbols on pizza boxes or soap wrappers, causing the general decay of morals and civilization as we know it, etc. The Satanists deny it. The evidence is not very strong that the Satanists are either as evil or as powerful as their enemies say they are. There is strong evidence for the strength and wickedness of the pious.

 

Psalm 109:6b “and let Satan stand at his right hand”
or “let an accuser stand at his right hand.”
and the angel of the LORD stood in the way for an adversary against him
behold, I went out to withstand thee
lest he [David] be an adversary against us
[you sons of Zeruaiah] should this day be adversaries (plural) unto me?
there is neither adversary nor evil occurrent
And the LORD stirred up an adversary unto Solomon, Hadad the Edomite
And God stirred him up an adversary, Rezon the son of Eliadah
And he [Rezon] was an adversary to Israel all the days of Solomon

Isaiah 14: 12 How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! how art thou cut down to the ground, which didst weaken the nations!
13 For thou hast said in thine heart, I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God: I will sit also upon the mount of the congregation, in the sides of the north:
14 I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will be like the most High.
15 Yet thou shalt be brought down to hell, to the sides of the pit.
16 They that see thee shall narrowly look upon thee, and consider thee, saying, Is this the man that made the earth to tremble, that did shake kingdoms;
17 That made the world as a wilderness, and destroyed the cities thereof; that opened not the house of his prisoners?

Doctrine and Covenants 10:5 Pray always, that you may come off conqueror; yea, that you may conquer Satan, and that you may escape the hands of the servants of Satan that do uphold his work.

Doctrine and Covenants 76:25-29 25 And this we saw also, and bear record, that an angel of God who was in authority in the presence of God, who rebelled against the Only Begotten Son whom the Father loved and who was in the bosom of the Father, was thrust down from the presence of God and the Son,
26 And was called Perdition, for the heavens wept over him—he was Lucifer, a son of the morning.
27 And we beheld, and lo, he is afallen! is fallen, even a son of the morning!
28 And while we were yet in the Spirit, the Lord commanded us that we should write the vision; for we beheld Satan, that old serpent, even the devil, who rebelled against God, and sought to take the kingdom of our God and his Christ—
29 Wherefore, he maketh war with the saints of God, and encompasseth them round about.

 

Satan is a term used since its earliest biblical contexts, to refer to a human opponent.

The original Hebrew term, satan, is a noun from a verb meaning primarily to, “obstruct, oppose,” as it is found in Numbers 22:22, 1 Samuel 29:4, Psalms 109:6.

Numbers 22:22 And God’s anger was kindled because he went: and the angel of the Lord stood in the way for an adversary against him. Now he was riding upon his ass, and his two servants were with him.

1 Samuel 29:4 And the princes of the Philistines were wroth with him; and the princes of the Philistines said unto him, Make this fellow return, that he may go again to his place which thou hast appointed him, and let him not go down with us to battle, lest in the battle he be an adversary to us: for wherewith should he reconcile himself unto his master? should it not be with the heads of these men?

Psalms 109:6 Set thou a wicked man over him: and let Satan stand at his right hand.

Ha-Satan is traditionally translated as “the accuser,” or “the adversary.” The definite article “ha-,” English “the,” is used to show that this is a title bestowed on a being, versus the name of a being. Thus this being would be referred to as “the satan.”

Ha-Satan with the definite article occurs 13 times in the Masoretic Text, in two books of the Hebrew Bible.

Satan is the opposer known as the deceiver that leads humanity astray an “accuser” or “adversary” not necessarily the personification of evil that he would become in later Abrahamic religions.

ha-Satan is a member of the Divine Council, “the sons of God” who are subservient to God. Ha-Satan, in this capacity, is many times translated as “the prosecutor”, and is charged by God to tempt humans and to report back to God all who go against His decrees.

It has been interpreted that ha-Satan is under God’s control and cannot act without God’s permission as Yahweh says to the ‘satan’, ‘You have incited me against him, to destroy him for no reason.’

Ha-Satan translated by the Greek word diabolos (slanderer), is the same word in the Greek New Testament from which the English word devil is derived. Where satan is used of human enemies in the Hebrew Bible, such as Hadad the Edomite and Rezon the Syrian, the word is left untranslated but transliterated in the Greek as satan, a neologism in Greek.

Mastema, in the Book of Jubilees, induces God to test Abraham through the sacrifice of Isaac. He is identical to Satan in both name and nature.

Occasionally, the term satan has been used to suggest evil influence opposing human beings as in the Jewish exegesis of the Yetzer hara (“evil inclination” Genesis 6:5). Micaiah’s “lying spirit” in 1 Kings 22:22 is sometimes related. Thus, Satan is personified as a character in three different places of the Tenakh, serving as an accuser (Zechariah 3:1-2), a seducer (1 Chronicles 21:1), or as a heavenly persecutor who is “among the sons of God” (Job 2:1). In any case, Satan is always subordinate to the power of God, having a role in the divine plan.

1 Kings 22:22 And the Lord said unto him, Wherewith? And he said, I will go forth, and I will be a lying spirit in the mouth of all his prophets. And he said, Thou shalt persuade him, and prevail also: go forth, and do so.

Zechariah 3:1 And he shewed me Joshua the high priest standing before the angel of the Lord, and Satan standing at his right hand to resist him.
2 And the Lord said unto Satan, The Lord rebuke thee, O Satan; even the Lord that hath chosen Jerusalem rebuke thee: is not this a brand plucked out of the fire?

1 Chronicles 21:1 And Satan stood up against Israel, and provoked David to number Israel.

Job 2:1 Again there was a day when the sons of God came to present themselves before the Lord, and Satan came also among them to present himself before the Lord.

Traditionalists and philosophers in medieval Judaism, adhered to rational theology, rejecting any belief in rebel or fallen angels, and viewing evil as abstract. The Yetzer hara (“evil inclination” Genesis 6:5) is a more common motif for evil in rabbinical texts. Rabbinical scholarship on the Book of Job generally follows the Talmud and Maimonides as identifying the “Adversary” in the prologue of Job as a metaphor.

Genesis 6:5 And God saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually.

In Hasidic Judaism, the Kabbalah presents Satan as an agent of God whose function is to tempt one into sin, then turn around and accuse the sinner on high. The Chasidic Jews of the 18th century, associated ha-Satan with Baal Davar.

Subsequent development of Satan as a “deceiver” has parallels with the evil spirit in Zoroastrianism, known as the Lie, who directs forces of darkness.

Beelzebub, meaning “Lord of Flies”, is the contemptuous name given in the Hebrew Bible and New Testament to a Philistine god whose original name has been reconstructed as most probably “Ba’al Zabul,” meaning “Baal the Prince.”

Satan is traditionally identified as the serpent who tempted Eve to eat the forbidden fruit; thus, Satan has often been depicted as a serpent.

The Book of Revelation twice refers to “the dragon, that ancient serpent, who is called the devil and Satan,” (12:9, 20:2). The Book of Revelation also refers to “the deceiver,” from which is derived the common epithet “the great deceiver.”

Revelation 12:9 And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.

Revelation 20:2 And he laid hold on the dragon, that old serpent, which is the Devil, and Satan, and bound him a thousand years,

Other terms identified with Satan include “the prince of this world” in the Book of John 12:31, 14:30; “the prince of the power of the air” also called Meririm, and “the spirit that now worketh in the children of disobedience” in the Book of Ephesians 2:2; and “the god of this world” in 2 Corinthians 4:4.

John 12:31 Now is the judgment of this world: now shall the prince of this world be cast out.

John 14:30 Hereafter I will not talk much with you: for the prince of this world cometh, and hath nothing in me.

Ephesians 2:2 Wherein in time past ye walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that now worketh in the children of disobedience:

2 Corinthians 4:4 In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them.

Shaitan is the equivalent of Satan in Islam. While Shaitan is an adjective (meaning “astray” or “distant,” sometimes translated as “devil”) that can be applied to both man and Jinn, Iblis is the personal name of the Devil who is mentioned in the Qur’anic account of Genesis.

According to the Qur’an, Iblis (the Arabic name used) disobeyed an order from Allah to bow to Adam and as a result was forced out of heaven and given respite until the day of judgment from further punishment.

When Allah commanded all of the angels to bow down before Adam (the first Human), Iblis, full of hubris and jealousy, refused to obey God’s command (he could do so because he had free will), seeing Adam as being inferior in creation due to his being created from clay as compared to him (created of fire).

“It is We Who created you and gave you shape; then We bade the angels prostrate to Adam, and they prostrate; not so Iblis (Lucifer); He refused to be of those who prostrate.”

(Allah) said: “What prevented thee from prostrating when I commanded thee?” He said: “I am better than he: Thou didst create me from fire, and him from clay.

It was after this that the title of “Shaitan” was given, which can be roughly translated as “Enemy,” “Rebel,” “Evil” or “Devil”. Shaitan then claims that if the punishment for his act of disobedience is to be delayed until the Day of Judgment, that he will divert many of Adam’s own descendants from the straight path during his period of respite.

God accepts the claims of Iblis and guarantees recompense to Iblis and his followers in the form of Hellfire. In order to test mankind and jinn alike, Allah allowed Iblis to roam the earth to attempt to convert others away from his path.

He was sent to earth along with Adam and Eve, after eventually luring them into eating the fruit from the forbidden tree.

The connection with Satan, originally made by Muslim outsiders, attracted the interest of 19th century European travelers and esoteric writers.

In the Bahá’í Faith, Satan is not regarded as an independent evil power as he is in some faiths, but signifies the lower nature of humans. `Abdu’l-Bahá explains: “This lower nature in man is symbolized as Satan — the evil ego within us, not an evil personality outside.”

 

For most Christians, Satan is believed to be an angel who rebelled against God—and also the one who spoke through the serpent and seduced Eve into disobeying God’s command. His ultimate goal is to lead people away from the love of God—to lead them to fallacies which God opposes.

Before his insurrection, Satan was among the highest of all angels and the “brightest in the sky”. His pride is considered a reason why he would not bow to God as all other angels did, but sought to rule heaven himself. The popularly held beliefs that Satan was once an angel who becomes prideful and eventually rebels against God, however, are not portrayed explicitly in the Bible and are mostly based on inference

In the New Testament, Satan is a name that refers to a decidedly malevolent entity who possesses demonic god-like qualities.

In the Book of Wisdom, the devil is represented as the being who brought death into the world.

The text describes Satanael as being the prince of the Grigori who was cast out of heaven and an evil spirit who knew the difference between what was “righteous” and “sinful.”

Satan, also called the adversary or the devil, is the enemy of all righteousness and of those who seek to follow God. But in the premortal Council in Heaven, Lucifer, as Satan was then called, rebelled against God. Since that time, he has sought to destroy the children of God on the earth and to make them miserable.

Satan is cynical about disinterested human goodness and is permitted to test it under God’s authority and control and within the limits that God sets.

Satan is often comically portrayed as a guy in a red devil suit. He probably likes it this way, since most people (including Christians) are apt to disbelieve in his existence. As a “non-existent” force in people’s lives, Satan is free to influence them without being discovered as the cause of many of their problems. However, the Bible says that Satan is a beautiful and powerful fallen angel, who would like to do nothing more than take away the joy of Christians through deception, and lead people into rebellion against God. Although Satan is destined for the Lake of Fire, biblical prophecy indicates that he will deceive entire nations and kingdoms before he is relegated to eternal damnation, along with the other fallen angels he led into rebellion against God.

No, Satan does not look like the cartoon character in the red suit with a tail and horns and a pitchfork. Angels, including Satan, don’t have male or female characteristics in their heavenly state (which Jesus told us through His teaching). However, when they come to earth, they can take on human form. In the Bible, all angels who take on human form appear as males. All biblical references address Satan by the personal pronoun “he.”

In their heavenly state according to the Bible, a cherub is a large creature—up to 18 feet in height with 8 foot long wings. In the prophet Ezekiel’s vision, the cherubim (plural of “cherub”) had four wings. Under their wings were human-like hands that could be used to carry things. All the surfaces of the cherubim, including the wings, were covered with eyes. Each cherub had four faces, one “of a cherub, the second the face of a man, the third the face of a lion, and the fourth the face of an eagle.” The New Testament book of Revelation describes similar creatures, only with six wings each, with faces of a lion, an ox, a man, and an eagle. So, these creatures look nothing like the cute little cherubim you can buy for your garden or bookshelf. Satan himself is described as being “perfect in beauty,” being adorned with all kinds of precious stones.

In mainstream Christianity he is called “the ruler of the demons” (Matthew 12:24), “the ruler of the world” and “the god of this world” (2 Cor. 4:4). The Book of Revelation describes how Satan will be cast out of Heaven, down to the earth, having “great anger” and waging war against “those who obey God’s commandments and hold to the testimony of Jesus.” Ultimately, Satan is thrown into the “Lake of fire,” not as ruler, but as one among many, being tormented day and night forever and ever.

Matthew 12:24 But when the Pharisees heard it, they said, This fellow doth not cast out devils, but by Beelzebub the prince of the devils.

2 Corinthians 4:4 In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them.

He is spoken of as the prince of evil spirits, the inveterate enemy of God and of Christ, who takes the guise of an angel of light. He can enter a man and act through him; hence, a man can be called Satan because of his acts or attitude. Through his subordinate demons Satan can take possession of men’s bodies, afflicting them or making them diseased. To him sinners are delivered for the destruction of the flesh that the spirit may be saved. After the preaching of the 70 disciples, during which devils were subjected to them, Jesus saw Satan fall like lightning from heaven (Luke 10:18). According to the visions in the Book of Revelation, when the risen Christ returns from heaven to reign on earth, Satan will be bound with a great chain for a thousand years, then be released, but almost immediately face final defeat and be cast into eternal punishment. His name, Beelzebul, used in the Gospels mainly in reference to demoniac possession, comes from the name of the god of Ekron, Baalzebub (2 Kings 1).

Luke 10:18 And he said unto them, I beheld Satan as lightning fall from heaven.

2 Kings 1 Then Moab rebelled against Israel after the death of Ahab.
2 And Ahaziah fell down through a lattice in his upper chamber that was in Samaria, and was sick: and he sent messengers, and said unto them, Go, enquire of Baalzebub the god of Ekron whether I shall recover of this disease.
3 But the angel of the Lord said to Elijah the Tishbite, Arise, go up to meet the messengers of the king of Samaria, and say unto them, Is it not because there is not a God in Israel, that ye go to enquire of Baalzebub the god of Ekron?
4 Now therefore thus saith the Lord, Thou shalt not come down from that bed on which thou art gone up, but shalt surely die. And Elijah departed.
5 And when the messengers turned back unto him, he said unto them, Why are ye now turned back?
6 And they said unto him, There came a man up to meet us, and said unto us, Go, turn again unto the king that sent you, and say unto him, Thus saith the Lord, Is it not because there is not a God in Israel, that thou sendest to enquire of Baalzebub the god of Ekron? therefore thou shalt not come down from that bed on which thou art gone up, but shalt surely die.
7 And he said unto them, What manner of man was he which came up to meet you, and told you these words?
8 And they answered him, He was an hairy man, and girt with a girdle of leather about his loins. And he said, It is Elijah the Tishbite.
9 Then the king sent unto him a captain of fifty with his fifty. And he went up to him: and, behold, he sat on the top of an hill. And he spake unto him, Thou man of God, the king hath said, Come down.
10 And Elijah answered and said to the captain of fifty, If I be a man of God, then let fire come down from heaven, and consume thee and thy fifty. And there came down fire from heaven, and consumed him and his fifty.
11 Again also he sent unto him another captain of fifty with his fifty. And he answered and said unto him, O man of God, thus hath the king said, Come down quickly.
12 And Elijah answered and said unto them, If I be a man of God, let fire come down from heaven, and consume thee and thy fifty. And the fire of God came down from heaven, and consumed him and his fifty.
13 And he sent again a captain of the third fifty with his fifty. And the third captain of fifty went up, and came and fell on his knees before Elijah, and besought him, and said unto him, O man of God, I pray thee, let my life, and the life of these fifty thy servants, be precious in thy sight.
14 Behold, there came fire down from heaven, and burnt up the two captains of the former fifties with their fifties: therefore let my life now be precious in thy sight.
15 And the angel of the Lord said unto Elijah, Go down with him: be not afraid of him. And he arose, and went down with him unto the king.
16 And he said unto him, Thus saith the Lord, Forasmuch as thou hast sent messengers to enquire of Baalzebub the god of Ekron, is it not because there is no God in Israel to enquire of his word? therefore thou shalt not come down off that bed on which thou art gone up, but shalt surely die.
17 So he died according to the word of the Lord which Elijah had spoken. And Jehoram reigned in his stead in the second year of Jehoram the son of Jehoshaphat king of Judah; because he had no son.
18 Now the rest of the acts of Ahaziah which he did, are they not written in the book of the chronicles of the kings of Israel?

The Bible says that Satan will continue in his rebellion against God until the very end. Near the end, a “beast” (world ruler) will arise from the “sea” (the gentile nations), having been given power by Satan to perform signs and wonders for the world. In addition, a false prophet, a religious leader empowered by Satan will deceive people into worshipping him. The beast and the false prophet will convince the leaders of the earth to follow them into war against God and His people. However, the armies of the leaders of the world will be destroyed at the battle of Armageddon and the beast and false prophet will be thrown into the Lake of Fire. At this point, Satan will be locked up for 1,000 years, while Jesus Christ rules the earth with His saints. At the end of that period, Satan is released for a short period of time, deceives the leaders of the world again, and convinces them to attack Jesus and His rule on the earth. The battle is short as fire from heaven consumes the rebels. Satan is then thrown into the Lake of Fire (hell) to “be tormented day and night for ever and ever.

The true name of Satan, the Kabalists say, is that of Yahveh reversed; for Satan is not a black God, but the negation of God. For the Initiates, this is not a person, but a force, created for good, but which may serve for evil. It is the instrument of Liberty or free will. They represent this Force, which presides over the physical generation, under the mythologic and horned form of the God Pan; thence the he-goat of the Sabbat, brother of the Ancient Serpent, and the light bearer or Phosphor, of which the poets have made the false Lucifer of the legend.

Much modern “Satanic” lore does not originate from theistic or LaVeyan Satanism, but from traditional Christian folk beliefs coupled with contemporary urban legends. An example is the Satanic ritual abuse scare of the 1980s — beginning with the memoir Michelle Remembers — which depicted Satanism as a vast conspiracy of elites with a predilection for child abuse and human sacrifice. This genre frequently describes Satan as physically incarnating in order to receive worship.

Satanic groups have various opinions about Satan, ranging from the conviction that he exists and ought to be worshipped (theistic Satanism), to Anton Szandor LaVey’s symbolic interpretation, which emphasizes individual will and pleasure-seeking. In Theistic Satanism, Satan is considered a positive force and deity who is either worshipped or revered.

In Theistic Satanism, Satan is considered a positive force and deity who is either worshipped or revered.

In LaVeyan Satanism, Satan is regarded as holding virtuous characteristics.

We comprise the first above-ground organization in history openly dedicated to the acceptance of Man’s true nature—that of a carnal beast, living in a cosmos that is indifferent to our existence. To us, Satan is the symbol that best suits the nature of we who are carnal by birth—people who feel no battles raging between our thoughts and feelings, we who do not embrace the concept of a soul imprisoned in a body. Satan represents pride, liberty, and individualism—qualities often defined as Evil by those who worship external deities, who feel there is a war between their minds and emotions.

Since the Satanist understands that all Gods are fiction, instead of bending a knee in worship to—or seeking friendship or unity with—such mythical entities, he places himself at the center of his own subjective universe as his own highest value. We Satanists are thus our own “Gods,” and as beneficent “deities” we can offer love to those who deserve it and deliver our wrath (within reasonable limits) upon those who seek to cause us—or that which we cherish—harm.

But such self-deification is not for everyone, since it requires total responsibility for one’s choices and actions, and the realization of a social contract which makes for a civilized state of being. So Satanism is not meant to be “The Way” for all people, since we consider it a sad truth that only a small percentage of our species has the intelligence, adherence to reason, and self-discipline to handle our perspective.

The First Church of Satan, The Satanic Church, and The Satanic Church of America, maintain the simplest and boldest moniker, embodied in the words Church of Satan.

Priesthood of Mendes, Devil’s Advocates, Satan’s Priesthood, the Order of the Trapezoid, the Council of Nine, the Magistra, the High Priestess, the High Priest, the Grand Mistress of the Temple, Magistra Templi Rex, and the Chairmistress of the Council of Nine.

There are no branches of the Church of Satan. The Church of Satan does not have regular services, nor do we have church buildings for gathering people. Since our approach is individualist, our members who use ritual do so in chambers they construct in their own homes reflecting their own tastes and needs. These are not open to visitation.

The only people who perform sacrifices are those who believe in supernatural beings who would consider a sacrifice to be some form of payment for a request or form of worship. Since we do not believe in supernatural beings there is no reason for a Satanist to make a sacrifice of any sort.

Our ritual is basically a form of self-therapy and is most often done in private.

Satanists are atheists. We see the universe as being indifferent to us, and so all morals and values are subjective human constructions.

Our position is to be self-centered, with ourselves being the most important person (the “God”) of our subjective universe, so we are sometimes said to worship ourselves.

Satan to us is a symbol of pride, liberty and individualism, and it serves as an external metaphorical projection of our highest personal potential. We do not believe in Satan as a being or person.

In Satanism each individual is his or her own god—there is no room for any other god and that includes Satan, Lucifer, Cthulhu or whatever other name one might select or take from history or fiction.

Seeing that Satanism is a work in progress, an attempt for melding science with philosophy, we are fully justified in choosing the concepts of old, working with them in our context and taking them into the future. (If we didn’t, who else would?) This is the same process used by scientists, doctors, psychologists, and many other professionals. Nothing would get done if individuals merely went along with established thought and never added to it. It’s evolution, pure and simple.

Spiritual Satanism does not in any way condone spirit abuse as taught in the classical grimoires. The Demons who were bound and compelled to do the bidding of the sorcerers are now free and anyone using the nine-foot circle methods and “Jehova” names is inviting personal disaster. The Demons are our friends and with respect and reverence in summoning through Satan, we seek to establish mutually beneficial relationships with them.

Spiritual Satanism places no limits on developing the powers of the mind known as “witchcraft” or “magick.” We believe in justice and just as martial artists are versed in the uses of Dim Mak and other aspects of physical combat, Spiritual Satanists are versed in the Black Arts of “magick” should they ever need them. People who are unaware of these powers are defenseless against them, and the powers that be know this all too well. Satan does not tolerate injustice.

As opposed to the stories of how the Nazarene healed people; Satan shows us how we can heal ourselves and perform so-called miracles, using our minds and the powers of our own souls.

Satanism is based upon the true transformation of the soul through power meditation.

Spiritual Satanism is a life loving religion. Satan accepts us as we are, but guides us to advance ourselves to where we evolve to a higher level. Spiritual Satanists are free to live their lives as they chooseresponsibility to the responsible. We live by natural law and encourage everyone to develop themselves to their fullest extent.

We take our tenets and practices directly from Satan himself.

We work directly with Satan. We believe each and every person who is willing and respectful can have a personal relationship with Satan. There are no mediators in Spiritual Satanism; the Ministry is only for guidance and support.

We practice power meditation to advance spiritually and to elevate ourselves. Power meditation is as essential for the human soul as food is essential for the human body. The serpent, a symbol of Satan represents the firey kundalini force coiled at the base of the spine, which upon ascending, transforms the human mind and soul to a much higher level of understanding and ability. This is the true meaning of “Raising the Devil.” The Serpent symbol of Satan also represents the DNA helix of life.

Satanists do not push Satanism or prosyletize.

Spiritual Satanists acknowledge science and believe everything of the occult/supernatural to have a rational scientific explanation.

The powers of the mind and soul are very real. People who are unaware of or who do not believe in these powers are easy to control and manipulate by those who are skilled in using these energies.

The aim of this religion is the ultimate destruction of religions through the advancement of individual freedom, social responsibility and education. With freedom comes the responsibility of other people’s freedom. One man’s freedom must never become another man’s slavery. Without mutual respect and cooperation we will only continue to kill ourselves in the name of god, country and greed. The philosophy of Satanism undermines all existing religions including our own. Thus the Satanic Philosophy is based on a paradox, much like the Tao. It is self-canceling and cannot become the new bully on the block. And, when society respects each individual’s rights, no matter how diverse, the Satanists Job will be complete. We all have the right not to be victimized in any way, shape or form for any reason and remember children are people too, even your own. Satanism exists to educate the masses away from old world thinking and to illuminate and educate them so they happily accept a new world order, ideally one of, “Self Rule” and mutual cooperation.

Now for the method; by not having any set reality or belief you are not trapped by their rules, and are free to start making your own interpretations of what reality is or isn’t. This is freedom, the breaking away from the status quo, to see things from a more personal perspective. Much like when Satan broke ranks from god and became the first revolutionist. It’s funny how governments promote god worship when most modern governments owe their existence to Freemasonry and revolution, the dream of freedom, the spirit of Satan. Governments and religions, actively partake in propaganda against Satanism for they truly fear being overthrown. As for America, Satanism is Americanism, for America supports freedom of religion in the same Masonic context that Satanism does. Although certain religions in America attempt to combat this, our wonderful constitution, (written by Freemasons) prevents them from achieving their goals. Yes, Satanism reaches far past the United States boarders. We are trying to spread the Light of phosphor, the light of freedom throughout the world.

And freedom is only found in the mind, for the physical world and its systems, such as society, bind us. Please remember that with freedom comes a great responsibility to our neighbors in this society, their freedoms.

Although we view reality/beliefs as the unalienable right of everyone, I do support your full-blown assaults on those that would infringe upon your rights, as long as you execute your attacks in a legal and productive manner. We do not turn the other Cheek, unless it’s to buy time to smite with discretion. Hopefully by your mannerisms, diplomacy and actions, more people will see that freedom is not evil and people can be socially responsible without a threat of Hell or any other religious afterlife accounting. Remember it is their right to live and die in their belief just as it is your right to live and die in yours. Besides, tolerance is not acceptance; you don’t have to like someone or something to tolerate them or it. This does not deny you your favorite bigotries and hatreds. It merely keeps you from violating the rights of those you hate. It really is that simple folks. You can hate each other all you want, just don’t act upon it.

Now, one last thing, we ask you to abide by the laws of your countries and local governments as they pertain to you and to take an active role in changing them as you feel is needed.

Satanism is for free thinking independent people. If you prefer a more closed-minded, stringent reality than Satanism, our religion is probably not for you and I ask you to please refrain from joining. Satanism makes no claims as far as the “True Satanic path” or any “True Way”.

 

Satan was the first revolutionist. Therefore, Satan as defined in “Morals and Dogma”, is the perfect figurehead for a revolutionary religion. His act of rebellion was the first and most famous allegory of freedom.

Lucifer, who held vile things in proud disdain, despised this rabble of commonplace spirits for ever wallowing in a life of feasts and pleasure. But to those who were possessed of a daring spirit, a restless soul, to those fired with a wild love of liberty, he proffered friendship, which we return with adoration.

Historical reports of early Satanism are often colored by fears of an anti-human “other”, however, the literary history of Satan—from Milton to Anatole France—suggests that biblical interpretations of a humanistic, benevolent Satan, driving our highest aspirations and encouraging human compassion have resonated for centuries.

To embrace the name “Satan” is to avow skepticism in the face of all things, even—especially—that which is held sacred. To stand forth as a “Satanist” is to rend from the persecutory, affrighted mob a convenient out-group label, demanding that individuals be judged for their concrete actions, not their fealty to arbitrary social norms and illusory categorizations.

Satan, the symbolic force of design that would urge humanity toward refined pleasures of the Arts and Sciences. Satan, who first brought the fruit of knowledge to Humankind that thereafter we might live not as naked brutes in the wild, but develop our cultural splendor into ever more aesthetically and technologically advanced heights. Ours is the Humanistic Satan who would sacrifice His own Heavenly residence so that Humanity might learn to understand and enjoy the physical world they inhabit.

Satanists are often natural aestheticians who revel in the grandeur of human artistic, architectural achievements while also often drawn to the idiosyncratic and bizarre that are all too typically misunderstood, feared, and discarded.

Satan stands as the ultimate icon for the selfless revolt against tyranny, free & rational inquiry, and the responsible pursuit of happiness.

Satan has the compassion and wisdom of an angel. Although Satan is subordinate to God, he is mankind’s only conduit to the dominion beyond the physical. In addition, only Satan can hear our prayers and only Satan can respond.

The Satanist harbors reasonable agnosticism in all things, holding fast only to that which is demonstrably true.

Thus, Satanism is an evolving religion, unfettered by arcane doctrines born of fearful minds in darkened times. Belief must reconstruct itself to fact, never the other way round. This is the Luciferian impulse to eat of the Tree of Knowledge, even (and especially) when to do so irretrievably dissipates blissful and comforting delusions of old.

That which will not bend must break, and that which can be destroyed by truth should never be spared its demise.

This is an ultimatum.

Hail Satan!

 

Nine Tenets of Satanism

There are nine fundamental tenets of Satanism—with nine being a significant Satanic number. Each tenet is represented by one of the choir of nine Angels sent from Heaven to oversee Earth.
1. People should be guided by compassion and wisdom and follow the golden rule of “do unto others as you would have them do unto you.”
2. The Circle of Compassion should extend to all species, not just humans.
3. People are fallible, and although we should all try to do our best, poor judgment is inevitable. If we make a mistake, we should do our best to rectify it, and resolve any harm that may have been caused by our misdeeds.
4. The Satanist should ever be self-reflective.
5. Our beliefs should conform to our best scientific understanding of the world. We should take care never to distort scientific facts to fit our beliefs.
6. The freedoms of others should be respected, even the freedom to offend, but great care should be exercised to avoid wrongly encroaching on the freedoms of others.
7. There are things we don’t understand, and it is appropriate to acknowledge that. It is not appropriate, however, to be proud of ignorance.
8. While proselytizing might have noble intent, it is not acceptable to coerce or push your beliefs on others. It is always best to lead by example.
9. Every tenet is a guiding principle designed to inspire nobility in action and thought. The spirit of compassion and wisdom should always prevail over the written or spoken word.

 

Apparently Satan knows only the sins that have not been confessed or repented. What has been submitted to the keys of the confessional seems to be out of his reach. It would seem that the sacrament of penance blots out or obliterates sins from the soul so as not to leave the slightest possibility for Satan to discover them. Through the sacrament of penance everything is, so to say, drowned in the abyss of God’s mercy.

Furthermore, it must be remembered that Satan, the father of lies, often twists small acts into unusually and seemingly grievous ones, making mountains out of molehills, so to speak, and at times purposely distorting them, mixing up truth with falsehood with the intention of creating the greatest disorder and most lasting enmity.

 

Suddenly a loud shrill voice rent the air. The noise in the room sounded as though it were far off, somewhere in a desert. Satan howled as though he had been struck over the head with a club. Like a pack of wild beasts suddenly let loose, the terrifying noises sounded aloud as they came out of the mouth of the possessed woman. Those present were struck with a terrible fear that penetrated the very marrow of their bones.

“Silence, Satan. Keep quiet, you infamous reprobate! ”

Satan dares at all to remain in the presence of the All Holy? How can he endure it? Does he not run off like a whipped cur? All we need to remember is that Satan dared to approach our Lord fasting in the desert. He even dared to take the Saviour upon a high pinnacle at Jerusalem; and again he carried Him up on a high mountain-top. If he showed himself so powerful then, he has not changed since.

Devil, barking like the hound of hell. “Beelzebub.”
Exorcist: “You call yourself Beelzebub. Are you not Lucifer, the prince of the devils?”
Devil: “No, not the prince, the chieftain, but one of the leaders.”
Exorcist: “You were therefore not a human being, but you are one of the fallen angels, who with selfish pride wanted to be like unto God?”
Devil with grinning teeth. “Yes, that is so. Ha, how we hate Him!”
Exorcist: “Why do you call yourself Beelzebub if you are not the prince of the devils?”
Devil: “Enough, my name is Beelzebub.”
Exorcist: “From the point of influence and dignity you must rank near Lucifer, or do you hail from the lower choir of angels?”
Devil: “I once belonged to the seraphic choir.”
Exorcist: “What would you do, if God made it possible for you to atone for your injustice to Him?”
Demoniacal sneering: “Are you a competent theologian?”
Exorcist: “How long have you been torturing this poor woman?”
Devil: “Since her fourteenth year.”
Exorcist: “How dared you enter into that innocent girl and torture her like that?”
Sneeringly: “Ha, did not her own father curse us into her?”
Exorcist: “But why did you, Beelzebub, alone take possession of her? Who gave you that permission?”
Devil: “Don’t talk so foolishly. Don’t I have to render obedience to Satan?”
Exorcist: “Then you are here at the direction and command of Lucifer?”
Devil: “Well, how could it be otherwise?”

And when the exorcist approached him with the relic of the Cross hidden under his cassock, Satan became a raving maniac. “Begone, begone,” he howled, “I cannot bear it. Oh, this is torture! It is unbearable!”
“Look at the wood of the cross! Begone ye powers of hell! The lion of the tribe of Juda shall conquer!”
Satan acted terribly, “Stop it, stop it, I cannot bear it, I cannot listen to it!” he seemed to say.

 

Now, you have the goodness to abuse Satan and them, as much as you like, Sir, and to let me alone if you please.
