The Eleven Satanic Rules of the Earth

22 Jul

All the members of the official Church of Satan are best described as a dedicated group of suspicious atheists who do not celebrate Satan as a biblical devil or even because the nature of Satan as explained in Muslim and Christian scripture. Instead, they view Satan as a positive sign representing pride and individualism.

Beliefs of the Church of Satan

People who become part of the Church of Satan do but see the nature of Satan as a helpful adversary to fight the rigid suppression of individual instincts they think is a corrupting influence on Christianity, Judaism, and Islam. In spite of ordinary cultural perception, which is occasionally mired in superstitious fearfulness, members of the Church of Satan don't view themselves as"evil" or perhaps anti-Christian, but instead because proponents of free and natural human intuition celebrated in defiance of both repressions.

On the other hand, the fundamentals of this Church of Satan are usually discovered to be somewhat shocking to individuals raised to believe from the spiritual values of their Abrahamic religions--Judaism, Christianity, and Islam. These religions have been strong proponents of humility and deference, while members of the Church of Satan ardently believe in the supremacy of pride and human accomplishment. Since the values of these Abrahamic religions strongly influence most regulating systems in Western civilization, the standards of the Church of Satan could strike some as surprising and even upsetting.

  4. If one of the guests in your lair annoys you, oppress him and without mercy.
  5. Don't make sexual advances unless you're given the mating signal.
  6. Don't take what doesn't belong to you unless it's a burden to another person and he cries out to be relieved.
  7. Recognized the power of magic if you have used it successfully to obtain your desires. In the event you deny the power of magic after having called upon it with success, you'll lose everything you have got.
