What is Christianity's problem?
Satanism Is not believing in the 'Devil'
In order to believe in the 'Devil', you must believe in 'God'. I don't believe in 'God', but because I am Satanic, all christians assume that I enjoy the slaughter of goats, and the sacrificing of virgins. I don't do that because I'm Satanic, but because it's fun.
Could anybody give reasons as to why Christianity has such a downer on Satanism.
Without the obvious reasons.
Sigh Originally Satanism was the worship of Satan. Christians fancying witches to worship Satan & such, the derived a "new name" for it(lets just say it didn't stick). Satanism was originally the practice of "magick" in the Christian view of it. The founder of the church of Satan even recognized & worshiped Satan as an actual deity. Though a lot of modern Satanism claim not to worship Satan & such, a lot of the older ways of it still sticks. For instance, they still call Samhain & Beltane of Christian names-Halloween & Walpurgisnacht). The Goat head is still used in Satanism, ever since Christianity Demonized the original meaning of the Goat-representing the masculine deity- to symbolize Satan. Satanism is basically a long term selfishness, even their all famous symbol means that(the upside down pentagram). Right-side-up it means spirit over material matter, upside down material matter over the spirit.
Oh, get a load of some of their common rituals- Lust ritual: sex magic which includes masturbation, Compassion ritual to achieve healing or happiness, and Destruction ritual (may include sticking pins in a doll; drawing a picture or writing a description of the victim's death; delivering a soliloquy, etc.). Destruction rituals are best performed by a group. If a person targeted by a destruction ritual is not deserving of it, the ritual will not harm them Satanism is really nothing but a rebellion against Christianity(which originally was nothing but a rebellion of the feminine deity), so really it's no better but worse in my view than Christianity. It's a rebellion of a rebellion that became a pointless religion.
Before you say, it's nothing but having fun before you die, you don't perform any rituals or believe in any of that or anything but this life, that's usually atheism calling yourself Satanist(AKA-bored atheist). look up the Satan religion a but more, you might understand. No I'm not saying that out of spite, just stating.
If you don't believe in something, you'll fall for anything - anything having to do Satan is SIN - God being pure cannot even look upon sin - man, even in his very best state is a sinner - on judgement day, either: your sins are covered by the blood-shed sacrifice of Jesus Christ on the cross (salvation and only salvation - being a nice person isn't good enough - even at our very best, we are but filthy rags), and remembered no more or they are not (your sins are not covered) - where God's great love comes into play is, He provided a WAY (Jesus) for us not to perish and live in Heaven with Him (He certainly didn't have to do this but did because He loved us so) - if you read carefully John 3:16, this is exactly what it says - each person will either accept or reject, you must decide for yourself and yes, it's so important, it has eternal consequences - He Loves you and wants you to accept God's free gift to man - Jesus - 'if you are a truth seeker, then you will find Jesus'.
I like questions like these, because it really shows who is small minded, and who is a fully functioning human being!
I do not Slaughter and Sacrifice, but if I did, it would definitely be those bigoted christians. Let them have their eternal damnation. They created it after all.
I am happy in myself.
I do not despise, hate, dislike, loathe any religion in particular, just religion in general, as what once united us, now divides us.
You believe what you want to believe, but don't try to convince me that your 'God' is good, because he 'created' man, and man is not good.
Learn something new. Like acceptance.
I would still love them, & I wouldn't through them in the aybess of eternal torture! "I love you so much, now go burn in hell" The idea of a loving god is quite new. In the bible God is declared as a man of war! God even states himself that he hates!
He gave us free will yes, HE MADE US, he could of changed something in us tto allow us to believe in him without affecting free will, he did it to hundreds of other people. & if he didn't feel like changing us then WHY make us? It wouldn't be affecting any free will, he just wouldn't of made us. Tell me why?
to believe in something for the fun, is ignorant... know the facts. and people look to god as a guiding light, a savior to the lost... what has satan done for anything??? he has created the problems leading to the lost and chaos. sin is responsible for the bad in the world, people look to god as help... ya get whyy people don't like satanism now??? its like a mockery of everything god does
because I am Satanic, all christians assume that I enjoy the slaughter of goats, and the sacrificing of virgins. I don't do that because I'm Satanic, but because it's fun.<<
You do realize that just makes you sick and disgusting, right? And believe me, Christians aren't the only ones that think you need some major pychological help.
A lot of people do know the facts (and I am also an Atheist) but this guy actually likes to "slaughter goats and sacrifice virgins". That's just disgusting. He gives everyone that is a Satanist a bad name.
By the way...saying that he enjoys slaughtering goats and sacrificing virgins is not "assuming the worst" ...it is the worst.
People don't know the facts. They go by what they hear and assume the worst. People are b*tches.. I'm atheist and everybody confuses that with satanism because they don't know the facts. It's something I've learned to live with. If you like who you are then be who you are. Who really cares?! Kudos for us...
Satan is Chrsitianity's boogey man. So, of course they're going to freak at something called "Satanism", even if it doesn't actually involve worshipping Satan.
In regards to goats and virgins, ...slaughtering a goat doesn't sound so bad, but when I was 13, I tried like hell to "sacrifice" virgins.
I have read Anton Levins book, it is more like the 60's philosophy of if it feels good do it. It is not really the religion that everyone thinks that it is, the one with the goat killings and things of that nature came from I believe norse mythology? Correct me if I am wrong.
u have a sick mind, why do you worship satan? to be like god? thats sick, and why do all the sacrificing? how would you feel if I thought it would be fun to kill u, and waist a human life just because I was BOARD??? you must have a really messed up homelife or something
Amblessed, if he loved us so then why even call us sinners? Why even put us in the catagory until we actually did something sinful, why can't he forgive us & accept us for who we are, or what HE made us is he loves us so much? Makes no since.
uhm people, lighten up... it was a JOKE... you know, sarcasm, haha, meant for amusement?
and to answer your question, because it depends on your definition of satanism, and some people believe it means to worship the devil?
Yeah... I like amblessed regurgitated explanation of God and sin (cannot even look up in). I'm starting to think that God reacts to sin, the way my little sister reacts to a cockroach...
''Eeee! Get away! Ewww! EWWW!''
That is what free will is, he gives us the ability to choice how we will conduct ourselves. If your child did somthing wrong you would still love them because that is your nature just as it is Gods.
well you see satanism is the opposite of christianity...like heaven and hell...if theres a good,theres a bad and because it talks bad about jesus its looked down upon...hope it helps
Could anybody give reasons as to why Christianity has such a downer on Satanism.
Well, you making a mockery of Satanism, certainly isn't helping at all...
How many virgins have you sacrificed for fun?
