Satanism

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.”

Satanism is the ideaology of one dedicating themselves to their carnal self and mind, into the self indulgence of sinful acts. Satanism was popularized in America in 1968 by Anton Szandor LaVey, who wrote the Satanic Bible and started the Church of Satan amid the rampant sex and drug craze of the late 1960s.

Lavey formed the foundation of Satanism based off of Atheism (the rejection of the belief in God or Spiritual Beings) to go against the Religious institutions that He felt many Americans enslave themselves to while robbing ones self of lifes more splendid pleasures. Satanists actually do not believe in Satan or God but in My opinion is a more radical version of Atheism.

The idea of Satan is viewed more as, “Man living as his prideful, carnal nature dictates, ” stated Peter H. Gilmore, the Church of Satan current leader. Satanists have nine belief statements which are 1.) Satan represents indulgence instead of abstinence 2.) Satan represents vital existence instead of spiritual pipe dreams 3.) Satan represents undefiled wisdom instead of hypocritical self-deceit 4.) Satan represents kindness to those who deserve it, instead of love wasted on ingrates 5.) Satan represents vengeance instead of turning the other cheek 6.) Satan represents responsibility to the responsible instead of concern for psychic vampires 7.)

Satan represents man as just another animal, sometimes better, more often worse than those that walk on all-fours, who, because of his “divine spiritual and intellectual development,” has become the most vicious animal of all. 8.) Satan represents all of the so-called sins, as they all lead to physical, mental, or emotional gratification 9.) Satan has been the best friend the Christian Church has ever had, as He has kept it in business all these years. Also to mock the Church, Satanist invert religious symbols and ideas such as the Cross of Christ ( As depiceted in the picture above, instead of the Cross pointing up, it is shown pointing down mocking that Christ death and resurrection was in vain.) They also sing hymns that glorify the flesh and recite prayers backwards such as, “The Lords Prayer,” which in their mind reverses what The Lord has done for all of Mankind through the Cross. And sitting atop of the Cross is the pagan idol the Baphomet,(a pagan god that, resurfaced in the 19th century as a symbol of Satanism) which was derived from the scripture found in Leviticus 16:22, “And the goat shall bear upon him all their iniquities unto a land not inhabited: and he shall let go the goat in the wilderness.” Satanist took this image as a representation of themselves seeing as how the goat bears sin in which they choose to do also.

In death they believe they shall receive the “gift,” of every sin that they choose to live in while alive. The idea of Satanism is very idiotic, as the first and only true source of Satan is found in the Word of God and only there. Satan is not a rewarder but and accuser who fate is sealed and is only awaiting the Judgement of the One true God! I urge all to please pray for any who are trapped in this deceit that they may be saved and receive Christ the true Gift of Life. Also please be aware of the rampant Satanic symbolism that is being forced upon the unsuspecting individual from music, movies and celebrities who practice Satanism either knowingly or unknowingly in their art, Shalom…
