We are easily confused with the term “sin” because of 2000 years of indoctrination by the Christian regime; when we are called sinners we are told that we are breaking divine moral laws or the will of God.  In the realm of Satanism, sins are not dogmatic where Satan will hunt us down for our insolence, but situational that they have their own consequences.  The Nine Satanic Sins are not preferences or fetishes of Satan, but merely the natural action and reaction of the world we live in, which makes it true wisdom.  The nature of the world we live in is transactional where we give and take most often for goods and/or services.  The dogma of the Christian world applies to the wants of and needs of the Christ, or because “Jesus said so”, not because there is any real merit to the commands of this white-lighter deity.

            What we do in any given situation will determine the outcome, whether it is good for us or have a negative effect.  In the case of the Satanic Sin of self-deceit, if an individual tells himself the speed limit is 60mph rather than 15mph in a school zone he will undoubtedly come to an end of a speeding ticket or even a vehicular manslaughter charge by the end of the day.  Solipsism is an example of a situation where both Christians and Satanists can relate to, but it is the Satanist that is warned to steer clear of those that have a history of burning us and we are encouraged to give back what is given to us, whether positive or negative.  The purpose of one’s pride is to command you to be excellent, and polish your work with perfection; however if your work is so imperfect because you wish to be so different and outside of the box it is up to you to realize the error of your ways and acknowledge the work of those that have come before you as being prudent.  The true wisdom of the Satanic Bible is that it is a self-sustaining, self-sufficient, self-fulfilling belief system that Satan himself doesn’t have to micro-manage and hand out a “righteous judgment” (for lack of a better term), because the consequences are the nature of this world we live in.

            The laws of the Christian God are merely things he would prefer to have happen, in turn this is damaging to the natural order of the animals we are and because he feels he is the Almighty ruler of the universe he feels he can deny or change the natural order of the human animal in any way he sees fit. Satan will not go around punishing those who love their enemies because one’s enemy will make it perfectly clear to the forgiving party that it is not a good idea taking the “higher road.”  The nature of the world is like the wilderness of Africa where one cannot count on God, whoever He is to you, to tuck you in at night making sure you have had a decent meal before the sun goes down.  It is clear that the Christian God is the impersonal entity that you must be warned about, because it would benefit you much more to listen to your natural instincts of survival and run away from the large animal trying to devour you than it would to quiver in the corner and pray for Jehovah to send the predator on another path.  The Left Hand Path is not the personal fetishes of Satan, but only the truth that even He cannot deny nor escape from.

            Life in general is a winter earned and a summer spent, where every meal was an exchange of a few blisters and a lot of sweat for a meal and a bed.  If you become rich and famous, long will the days be forgotten where you can walk down to your favorite taco truck and have a peaceful meal with your girlfriend without someone trying to get a quote, an autograph, and a picture of you stuffing your face.  Should you become an elementary teacher, count on wiping a few noses during the winter and dealing with children that for some reason like the taste of Elmer’s Glue.  The glamorous life of a Kickboxer won’t feel so glamorous after a few broken noses and a strained right bicep.  Our existence generally speaking is a trade, our vocations and passions sometimes come with territory that won’t be so kind in return.

            In the eyes of the Christ-God, we will always be sinners because in the measurement of His bible, survival is not considered a virtue.  Jesus will never account for the times you took care of yourself and denied a stranger a meal because you needed to eat and consider it a “good thing”.  Satan will not punish you because your heart was broken by your wife who you knew was cheating on you.  The dogma of the Christ is now facing something more powerful and forceful than His will of how he himself wishes things would be, but the kingdom of the real, where the lion will not lay down with the lamb, and cats and dogs will not get along, but the pure primal nature of the animal who is willing to survive.  Let the fog lift now that we know the meaning of “sin” and the meaning of “transaction” and what it means to survive in a world full of conditions.

Many theists are criticized harshly in the Satanic Community and by those of the Left Hand Path for their belief in a literal Satan and I felt it was time to answer back at nay-sayers who think we aren’t as intellectual as they are for our more than magical belief system.  Those who merely use Satan as a symbol are constantly looking down upon us and believe that theists are just rebellious teenagers or are angry with God because their wife just died etc. etc. when the situation is more complex than that.  Atheistic thinkers can be a bit insulting by viewing theistic believers as degrading themselves before a master or enslaving themselves and plain out trading one yoke for another, when there is more confusion in this situation than there is space on the page to untie the knot.  And, of course the nature of the Satanist is to question and examine any given situation to come to a logical and rational conclusion and decide if a piece of information is worth keeping; and the question that lingers is, “Where is your proof?”, that this God of beasts and monsters exists at all and isn’t a figment of your own personal version of Dungeons and Dragons.  Having a master, I suppose would be hard for any theist to deny, but everything has a context and to a proper Satanist, theistic or atheistic, it is up to you to figure out what the proper meaning of that phrase is.

            Those who live in Hell are unimpressed with any new arrival that considers himself a rebel or that has lived on the fringe of society.  Any type of Satanist; LaVeyan, theistic, atheistic, or self-styled, I don’t consider purely atheistic, because if they were they would have picked up books like As A Man Thinketh by Earl Nightingale or 7 Habits of Highly Effective People by Stephen R. Covey, but instead were drawn to this outlandish outside of the box “religious” book called The Satanic Bible.  I would think that at that point in time all of us chose The Satanic Bible out of resentment for the Christian God and all he represents.  How then can a theist like myself be called delusional when so called atheists have their altar pointed westward and they keep their white candle on the right and their black candle on the left?  The awkward part is having atheists with so much religion in their lives calling themselves revolutionary, well they are half right (or left) because an atheist with a religion is certainly something you don’t run into every day.  To be a true Satanist you have to be more than just be willing to be rebellious and hate your parents, just like it takes more than hating the devil to get into heaven.

            I do call Satan God, I wear His banner upon my forehead and upon my right hand with pride and I don’t feel any less than who I am because of it.  One shouldn’t think that I’m being condescending, however; we shouldn’t confuse Satan with the Christian God ever!  As a theist I have not traded one cross for another, there is no burden of guilt, fasting, or other such non-sense that lies in Christianity when one becomes a Satanist.  The belief system of The Satanic Bible is now and will always be freedom from the Christian or status quo way of life, and what would be the point if Satan should ask us to behave in such a fashion contrary to the works of our bible?  As a believer in a literal devil I do acknowledge the existence of the soul, to which I deny the needs of it.  I choose to satiate the carnal appetites I find much more appealing as opposed to nurturing that which is the primary cause of guilt, abstinence, and pipe dreams of a heaven that I probably would have failed to get into even as a Christian.  To have a spiritual God with carnal desires isn’t as degrading or humiliating as one might think because as the legend goes Pride was Satan’s first sin, and to be like Him is the true spiritual awakening, the true Christ-consciousness.

            The proof of Satan or even the Christian God for that matter is by far the most difficult to explain.  Satan is not a novelty, nor a parlor trick where someone can summon him to non-believers to explain the ins and outs of the universe that we do not see; He is a force in this universe that the Creator God had trouble controlling, so how can we as humans think we can command Him to go here or go there and expect his obedience?  As it so happens the James Randi Educational Foundation has a “Million Dollar Challenge” to anyone who can prove the existence of the paranormal, and the fact of the matter is this is merely prostitution of one’s own God.  Atheistic Satanists appear to be more than willing to disregard pride of oneself and who they are or who they represent for money or fame than theists.  Is there no honor or respect for ourselves as a group, as a community that we are willing to brand it for the highest bidder?  If one would attempt to do this with any form of the supernatural including Jesus Christ, and try to capture it in a glass case it makes you nothing more than a mercenary and there would be no reason to favor you with loyalty or protection.  I’m certainly not saying be careful what you wish for, I hope everyone has their proof in time, but I don’t see Satan humiliating himself for a measly million dollars.

            Enlightenments of the mind seem to be around every corner, and Satanists around the world shouldn’t leave one stone unturned.  Satanists are all black sheep of the Right Hand Path, but to be a black sheep of the Left Hand Path is the real accomplishment.  Satan is the God that allows me to follow my true nature and really isn’t the accuser as His name suggests, but has stood His ground and defended the nature and right of the human race to be in our natural state unlike that “other guy” who always has a reason we should be forgiven.  The proof of Satan will come, because all the false prophets both Christian and Satanic have had their turn trying to squeeze another lie out of us.  In closing, let it not ever be about right and wrong among our kind, we have the Christians to tell us everything we’ve heard a million times and still not care about.
