Having a Master from KingofCups's blog

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.

You present some good points. Although I am a atheistic Satanist, I do admire some traditional/Theistic archetypes. Milton version of the romanticized version of Lucifer/Satan comes to mind. The misunderstood rebel angel that challenged the will of God. Sure, good stuff. But, where do we separate mythology from reality? And at what point do critical thinkers start believing in imaginary friends? If you truly believe in a literal devil, does that not subject you to the same scrutiny as the God fearing Christians?You present some good points.

I don't think I'll ever understand the desire for acceptance from others within the "Satanic Community." I get a long just fine with Atheistic Satanists, but that doesn't mean I accept their views as equally rational and practical as my own. I think the aim should be co-existence with one another, not any level of unification. We're different and it needs to stay that way for any level of progress to be attained.I don't think I'll ever understand the desire for acceptance from others within the "Satanic Community."

If some theists get looked down upon here or on other forums is mainly because they post silly stuff and can't even spell properly. So it's not really their beliefs but rather their level of intelligence. And I know it's over-generalization but after people see a few idiots, they start thinking all theists are the same. Human nature. However, it seems you know what you are talking about and I think you'll be accepted, even respected here. But once again: Is acceptance something someone identifying with Satan should strive for?If some theists get looked down upon here or on other forums is mainly because they post silly stuff and can't even spell properly.

Spelling is not taken as a sign of intelligence. Though spelling is not a sign of intelligence, illiteracy is a sign of of lacking intelligence, lacking education or just lacking the effort placed into the post.
