Why believe negativity?

(Anonymous)
whyembrace pain with satan! God will conquer! I pray that you all will know him and his mercy

Re: Why believe negativity?

Another mindless sheep, and pointless troll!

If God has mercy, why do innocent unborn children and babies suffer as a result of natural disasters, earthquakes, etc? Doesn't seem like your god is a very nice person!

Why so mean?

(Anonymous)
I just don't understand why it would be cool to cause pain and agony. I mean, it would be just so much better to see people smile and appreciating life rather than hating it. Just an opinion. Talk amongst yourselves.

It's not "cool" or good to cause pain and agony, it is pointless and wrong most the time. For example, look at the activities of god-fearing Christians during the Dark Ages and Middle Ages, they were the most inhumane people history has known. And Christian Churches nowadays, against equal rights for *any* minorities, causing pain and emotional agony of thousands of people just because of their superstitions. If you want pain and agony to end, I think you have to be anti-religious, religion is the biggest cause of persecution and war.

I've just read most of the book

(Anonymous)
Okay I've not now converted to a Satanist but it does raise questions. I mean, why does God put these 7 deadly sins on us when it is against out human nature to follow them. I like the concept of the Satanist because it says to embrace life as much as you can. But what about the after life? What happens then? Will i rott in Hell for my 'sins'? OR is there no heaven and hell? Or Is the burning hell concept another lie of the Christain faith? Please help, im abit confused.

Re: I've just read most of the book

The "7 deadly sins" were invented by early Christianity and are not part of Satanism. Satanism is a completely different religion to Christianity, with different history and beliefs:

http://www.dpjs.co.uk/christianity.html

The rejoiceful and energetic side of Satanism is one of the most healthy parts of religious beliefs.

There is no afterlife.
http://www.dpjs.co.uk/modern.html

Hell is a religious concept that is ages old, early Christianity didn't believe in a real hell but taught the idea of hell to people as an 'improving myth' designed to scare people into behaving how they wanted. Later, Christianity came to see hell as a real place. Some modern universalists Christians don't believe in hell. There is no real hell, and no real heaven. These places are impossible made-up fantasies.

arid wilderness

(Anonymous)
With respect for your efforts and learning, I would suggest that the words "arid wilderness" don't refer to nature. They refer to the social world of human beings. The wilderness or the wasteland is a familiar theme expressing a world of people living uninspired and inauthentic lives - mediocrates - people who are the principle target of satanic invective. Their lives are a wasteland lacking the fertility of mind and spirit that Satanists prize above all else.

The "steel and stone" image likewise addresses the artificial environment of modern humans. The greatest symbol of Christian civilization's achievement, the modern city, is a place of steel and stone, a place composed of sterile grey materials. A satanist immediately thinks of the lack of asthetic sense that went into building the environments we live in, and the effect it has on us if we are not careful. The city also invokes the sense of a hive created for the masses of man. You get the image of alienated and impoverished spirits inhabiting impressive, but ultimately deadening spaces in the false comfort of huge humbers and tremendous dimensions.
Keep up the good work

why??

(Anonymous)
i really want an answer by true satanists, not anyone who is just infatuated with the image and evil reputaion that surruonds this "theology" and i call it a theology because satanists worship themselves. my question is this: what is your purpose? for the moslem it is to overcome the infidel through allah. for the christian it is to afvance the kingdom of God and live with him eternally. for the buddhist it is to attain nothingness and escape the recurring cycle of births. but the satanists purpose? to have fun while on earth? i think i agree that this is unlike all religions in that they have a purpose that does not involve this life yet satanism is all about this life. what is your hope? to better society? to prolong the human race? does it matter? if no higher power exists then this race is the most insignificant thing in the universe and we dont deserve to be worshipped. what does it matter if my grandchildren or your grandchildren lead a happy life? that doesnt concern me. if there is no God then there is no point to this life whatsoever. i hope your sure. it is a high gamble.

Re: why??

(Anonymous)
The best way to get a reasonable answer is to go strait to the source. To find your answer go to www.churchofsatan.com

Ok so innocent unborn babies suffer from natural disasters but why do innocent children become a sacrifice at your rituals? Same thing assholes!

Only in horror movies, I'm afraid.

meritocritous

(Anonymous)
Is that a word? Do you mean meritocratic?

Ragnar Redbeard?

(Anonymous)
Who was he? Where'd he come from? What were the titles of his works? Was he perhaps the true founder of modern-day Satanism? What was his relationship with LaVey? Why doesn't LaVey credit him in the Satanic Bible?

GOD

(Anonymous)
God created Satan but Satan speaks truth: the weak will never survive in this world now! I am scared now because I truly believe in the LORD! But why not give a sign. I am at a critical point in my life and SATAN is making sense to me. WHY WHY WHY!!!

Re: GOD

SATAN

(Anonymous)
I HAVE A COUPLE THINGS TO SAY ABOUT THIS. IF YOU KNOW NOTHING ABOUT SATANISTS, JUST STOP JUDGING THEM. I COMPLETELY AGREE THAT INNOCENT PEOPLE ARE DYING AND SUFFERING BECAUSE OF GOD. YOU MAY HAVE SEEN PEOPLE BEING SACRIFICED FOR SATAN IN MOVIES, BUT HOW WOULD YOU LIKE IT IF I SAID IVE SEEN PLENTY OF MOVIES WHERE PEOPLE SUFFERED FOR GOD? YOULL SAY "THATS JUST IN MOVIES, ITS NOT REAL" BUT WHATS THE DIFFERENCE WITH SATANISTS? WHY DO YOU THINK SATANS SO BAD? DO YOU HAVE PROOF? WHAT PROOF IS THERE THAT GOD IS THE WAY OF LIFE? THERE IS NONE, ALL WE GO ON IS WHAT PEOPLE THINK. FOR ALL WE KNOW, GODS SITTING UP IN HEAVEN PLOTTING EACH AND EVERYONE OF OUR DEATHS WHILE SATANS TRYING TO SAVE US ALL. SOMEONE SAID SOMETHING ABOUT BEING MINDLESS SHEEP AND I AGREE WITH THAT TOO BUT ITS THE OTHER WAY AROUND. YES, MINDLESS SHEEP ARE SHEEP WHO DONT THINK FOR THEMSELVES, THAT JUST FOLLOW WHAT ALL OF THE OTHERS ARE DOING. KIND OF LIKE RELIGION. YOU THINK ITS THINKING FOR YOURSELF WHEN YOU SAY YOU LOVE GOD? WHY? BECAUSE SOME GUY AT YOUR CHURCH SAID HE WAS GOOD? SATANISTS ARE THE ONES WHO THINK FOR THEMSELVES AND DONT BELIEVE EVERYTHING THEY HEAR. IF WERE THE SHEEP JUMPING OF CLIFFS, THEN THATS WHAT WE ARE. WERE THE ONES TAKING RISKS AND BELIEVING IN SOMETHING DIFFERENT. NEXT TIME THINK BEFORE YOU JUST JUDGE PEOPLE YOU DONT KNOW ANYTHING AT ALL ABOUT

Lestat Ventrue from the church of satan
Banned me from his website satannet.com
because i am not a satanist and so i am very happy to see the vexen crabtree live journal because now i can learn about satanism.
i believe the vexen interpretation is very good but i dont believe that satan told mr lavey to write these words.

Jesus is the ONLY WAY TO HEAVEN, I pray that you too will find Him!

So how did Moses get to heaven, and the millions of people who lived before Jesus' time? I don't think your simplistic Christian mythology is particularly well thought out.

why worry?

(Anonymous)
y do you guys worry weather your gonna go to hell or heaven? i mean you die and your body goes in the ground and rots! nothing else happens!
both religions have good points on how they view their life and afterlife but you dont have to make so much shit about it!

No, heaven and hell are things that leaders invented in order to scare and bribe immoral people into behaving well.

I manage to behave well without such elements of wishful thinking.

hmmmm

read the1st part of the book of satan......i can relate 2 it

Relate to the art of lesser magic and learn one thing right now: Good communication skills are part of first impressions. Learn to write English. Then one day, the Book of Satan might start suiting you.

Hello, I am going to say this in the nicest way I can. These are the  
dumbest things ever! How do you believe in all these lies??? God  
created you not Satan. And god has a plan for every person. If you  
believe in what you do now you are goin to rot in hell! And not perish  
in heaven. I am 13 years old so it takes alot of courage for me to say  
what I am saying. So please please please email me back. I'm very shy  
but I ain't afraid to tell people about god in good ways!!!

Anna

If God has a plan for every person, then why are you trying to change people's beliefs? Do you know us people better than God?

Its not to late read the right book,the holy bible

(Anonymous)
What is promised to you in this nonsense God will give u new life. In the name of jesus who has all power I pray this will reach someone in time.

May God bless you && protect you from the lies that satan is feeding you.

(Anonymous)
For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.

John 3:16


Jesus answered her, “If you knew the gift of God and who it is that asks you for a drink, you would have asked him and he would have given you living water.”

John 4:10


Please let Jesus into your heart && turn away from this evil. Satan does not love you, he only wants to hurt you.

Revelation 22:12-21

Epilogue: Invitation and Warning

12 “Look, I am coming soon! My reward is with me, and I will give to each person according to what they have done. 13 I am the Alpha and the Omega, the First and the Last, the Beginning and the End.

14 “Blessed are those who wash their robes, that they may have the right to the tree of life and may go through the gates into the city. 15 Outside are the dogs, those who practice magic arts, the sexually immoral, the murderers, the idolaters and everyone who loves and practices falsehood.

16 “I, Jesus, have sent my angel to give you[a] this testimony for the churches. I am the Root and the Offspring of David, and the bright Morning Star.”

17 The Spirit and the bride say, “Come!” And let the one who hears say, “Come!” Let the one who is thirsty come; and let the one who wishes take the free gift of the water of life.

18 I warn everyone who hears the words of the prophecy of this scroll: If anyone adds anything to them, God will add to that person the plagues described in this scroll. 19 And if anyone takes words away from this scroll of prophecy, God will take away from that person any share in the tree of life and in the Holy City, which are described in this scroll.

20 He who testifies to these things says, “Yes, I am coming soon.”

Amen. Come, Lord Jesus.

21 The grace of the Lord Jesus be with God’s people. Amen.
