Theistic Satanism - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

See: Ratzinger Mepistopheles black magic sorcerer 

Ratzinger was one of the principle Black Nobility and Houses of the Dragon, architects of Vatican II at the core of which is the The Black Mass which is the Abomination of Desolation. Bergoglio is his groomed demon infested puppet.

The Black Mass is the ultimate of Satanism's blasphemies against God and His Christ and the Holy Spirit. It is ETERNAL DAMNATION for all who have anything to do with it or anyone who has any part with it in any way, including anyone turning a blind eye towards Satanist Perverts who lie and call themselves Catholic - especially the last six Satanist Pervert AntiPopes: John XXIII through Francis. All six are eternally centered on the Abomination of Desolation and Damned forever, see this for details: The Enthronement of Lucifer in the Vatican (Bp Williamson, Bp Fellay, Fr Malachi Martin, Fr Amorth) - YouTube

Theistic Satanism - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Theistic Satanism

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Part of the sigil of Luciferfrom the Grimorium Verum, used as a symbol of Satan by some theistic Satanists.
Theistic Satanism (also known as traditional Satanism or spiritual Satanism) is the belief that Satan—as prefigured in (most prevalent) Christian and/or Islamic (less often) contexts—is a supernatural being or force that individuals may contact and supplicate to,[1][2] and represents loosely affiliated or independent groups and cabals which hold such a belief. Another characteristic of Theistic Satanism include the use of ceremonial magic.[3] Unlike LaVeyan Satanism, as founded by Anton LaVey in the 1960s, theistic Satanism is theistic[3] as opposed to atheistic, believing that Satan (Hebrew: הַשָׂטָן ha-Satan, ‘the accuser’) is areal entity[3] rather than an archetype.
The history of theistic Satanism, and assessments of its existence and prevalence in history, is obscured by it having been grounds for execution at some times in the past, and due to people having been accused of it who did not consider themselves to worship Satan, such as in the witch trials in Early Modern Europe. Most of theistic Satanism exists in relatively new models and ideologies, and many claiming to not be involved with Christianity at all.[4][5][6]

Possible history of theistic Satanism[edit]

Illustration by Martin van Maële, of a Witches' Sabbath, in the 1911 edition of La Sorciere, by Jules Michelet.
The worship of Satan was a frequent charge against those charged in the witch trials in Early Modern Europe and other witch-hunts such as the Salem witch trials. Worship of Satan was claimed to take place at the witches' sabbat.[7] The charge of Satan worship has also been made against groups or individuals regarded with suspicion, such as the Knights Templar, or minority religions.[8] It is not known to what extent accusations of groups worshiping Satan in the time of the witch trials identified people who did consider themselves Satanists, rather than being the result of religious superstition or mass hysteria, or charges made against individuals suffering frommental illness. Confessions are unreliable, particularly as they were usually obtained under torture.[9] However, scholar Jeffrey Burton Russell, Professor Emeritus of the University of California at Santa Barbara, has made extensive arguments in his book Witchcraft in the Middle Ages[10] that not all witch trial records can be dismissed and that there is in fact evidence linking witchcraft to gnostic heresies. Russell comes to this conclusion after having studied the source documents themselves. Individuals involved in the poison affair were accused of Satanism and witchcraft.

The Baphomet, adopted symbol of someLeft-Hand Path systems, including theistic Satanism.
Some members of Ordo Flammeus Serpens (OFS), a group that venerates demons, say that they were trained by a traditional family sect, or are generationaldemonolaters whose religion has been passed down through the family.[11] Claims such as these are unproven.[12] Tani Jantsang of Satanic Reds refers to herself as a generational Satanist,[13] but what she means by that is that her family would have been labelled Satanic by Christianity, although they are in fact “non-Islamic Turko-Tatar”.[14] Theistic Satanists are inspired by incidences they see as evidence of previous followers of their faith. The concept of Satan may incorporate elements from religions older than Judaism. Ha-satan is the role of one of Yahweh's court, whose duties include testing the faith of humanity; the concept may be derived from a judicial function in Israeli court, similar to a prosecuting attorney.[15] The Jewish Encyclopedia says that parts of the Old Testament where Satan is seen to act independently of Yahweh may have been influenced by Zoroastrianism.[16]However, the same article states that the original doctrine was that punishment was inflicted by angels rather than by Satan, but popular unorthodox concepts of Satan gradually found their way into religious orthodoxy, by around 200 CE.[17]According to later Talmudic tradition about Satan, “He is the incarnation of all evil, and his thoughts and activities are devoted to the destruction of man; so that Satan, the impulse to evil (‘yeẓer ha-ra’), and the angel of death are one and the same personality. He descends from heaven and leads astray, then ascends and brings accusations against mankind.”[17]Historically, Satanist was a pejorative term for those with opinions that differed from predominant religious or moral beliefs.[18] Paul Tuitean believes the idea of acts of “reverse Christianity” was created by the Inquisition,[19] but George Battaille believes that inversions of Christian rituals such as the Mass may have existed prior to the descriptions of them which were obtained through the witchcraft trials.[20]

The full sigil of Lucifer, as it originally appeared in theGrimorium Verum
In the 18th century various kinds of popular “Satanic” literature began to be produced in France, including some well-known grimoires with instructions for making a pact with the Devil. Most notable are the Grimorium Verum andThe Grand Grimoire. The Marquis de Sade describes defiling crucifixes and other holy objects, and in Justine gives a fictional account of the Black Mass,[21] although Ronald Hayman has said Sade's need for blasphemy was an emotional reaction and rebellion from which Sade moved on, seeking to develop a more reasoned atheistic philosophy.[22] In the 19th century, Eliphas Levi published his French books of the occult, and in 1855 produced his well-known drawing of the Baphomet which continues to be used by some Satanists today (for example the sigil of Baphomet). Finally, in 1891, Joris-Karl Huysmans published his Satanic novel, Là-bas, which included a detailed description of a Black Mass which he may have known first-hand was being performed in Paris at the time,[23] or the account may have been based on the masses carried out by Étienne Guibourg, rather than by Huysmans attending himself.[24] Quotations from Huysmans' Black Mass are also used in some Satanic rituals to this day since it is one of the few sources that purports to describe the words used in a Black Mass. The type of Satanism described in Là-Bas suggests that prayers are said to the Devil, hosts are stolen from the Catholic Church, and sexual acts are combined with Roman Catholic altar objects and rituals, to produce a variety of Satanism which exalts the Devil and degrades the God of Christianity by inverting Roman Catholic rites. George Bataille claims that Huysman's description of the Black Mass is “indisputably authentic”.[20] Not all theistic Satanists today routinely perform the Black Mass, possibly because the mass is not a part of modern evangelical Christianity in Protestant countries[25] and so not such an unintentional influence on Satanist practices in those countries.
Michael Aquino published a rare 1970 text of a Church of Satan black mass, the Missa Solemnis, in his book The Church of Satan,[26] and Anton LaVeyincluded a different Church of Satan black mass, the Messe Noire, in his 1972 book The Satanic Rituals. LaVey's books on Satanism, which began in the 1960s, were for a long time the few available which advertised themselves as being Satanic, although others detailed the history of witchcraft and Satanism, such as The Black Arts by Richard Cavendish published in 1967 and the classic French work Satanism and Witchcraft, by Jules Michelet. Anton LaVey specifically denounced “devil worshippers” and the idea of praying to Satan.

Satanism and crime[edit]

The Satanic ritual abuse moral panic of the 1980s and 1990s was centered on fears or beliefs about traditional Satanism sacrificing children and committing crimes as part of rituals involving devil worship.[27] Allegations included the existence of large networks of organized Satanists involved in illegal activities such as murder, child pornography and prostitution; iconic cases such as the McMartin preschool trial were launched after children were repeatedly and coercively interrogated by social workers, resulting in false allegation of child sexual abuse. No evidence was ever found to support any of the allegations of Satanism or ritual abuse, but the panic resulted in numerous wrongful prosecutions.
John Allee, founder of the First Church of Satan,[28] equates some of the "violent fringe" of Satanism as "Devil worshipers" and "reverse Christians". He believes they possibly suffer from a form of psychosis.[29] Between 1992 and 1996, some participants in the Norwegian black metal scene, notable for criticizing the Church of Satan as being too "humane",[30] committed over fifty arsons of Christian churches in and around Oslo as a retaliatory action against Christianity in Norway.[31]
Some studies of crimes have also looked at the theological perspective of those who commit religious or ritualised crime.[32] Criminals who explain their crimes by claiming to be Satanists have been said by sociologists to be “pseudo-Satanists”,[33] and attempts to link Satanism to crime have been seen by theistic Satanists as scaremongering.[34] In the 1980s and the 1990s there were multiple allegations of sexual abuse of children or non-consenting adults in the context of Satanic rituals in what has come to be known as The Satanic Panic. In the United States, the Kern County child abuse cases, McMartin preschool trial and the West Memphis 3 cases were widely reported. One case took place in Jordan, Minnesota, in which children made allegations of manufacturing child pornography, ritualistic animal sacrificecoprophagiaurophagia and infanticide, at which point the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) was alerted. Twenty-four adults were arrested and charged with acts of sexual abuse, child pornography and other crimes claimed to be related to Satanic ritual abuse; three went to trial, two were acquitted and one convicted. Supreme Court Justice Scalia noted in a discussion of the case, “[t]here is no doubt that some sexual abuse took place in Jordan; but there is no reason to believe it was as widespread as charged”, and cited the repeated, coercive techniques used by the investigators as damaging to the investigation.

Values in theistic Satanism[edit]

Seeking knowledge is seen by some theistic Satanists as important to Satan, due to his being equated with the Serpent in Genesis encouraging mankind to partake of the fruit of the Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil.[35] Some perceive Satan as Baphomet, a hermaphroditic bestower of knowledge (gnosis). Satanic groups, such as Luciferians, also seek to gain greater gnosis;[3] these Satanists view Yahweh as the demiurge and Satanas the transcendent being beyond.[3]
Self-development is important to theistic Satanists. This is due to the Satanists' idea of Satan, who is seen to encourage individuality and freedom of thought, and the quest to raise one's self up despite resistance, through means such as magic and initiative. They believe Satan wants a more equal relationship with his followers than the Christian God does with his. From a theistic Satanist perspective, Christianity does not define “good” or “evil” in terms of benefit or harm to humanity, but rather on the submission to or rebellion against God.[36] Some Satanists seek to remove any means by which they are controlled or repressed by others and forced to follow the herd, and reject non-governmental authoritarianism.[37]
As Satan in the Old Testament tests people, theistic Satanists may believe that Satan sends them tests in life in order to develop them as individuals. They value taking responsibility for oneself. Despite the emphasis on self-development, theistic Satanists often feel that there is a will of Satan for the world and for their own lives. They may promise to help bring about the will of Satan,[38] and seek to gain insight about it through prayer, study or magic. In the temptation of Christ in the desert, Satan shows Jesus “all the kingdoms of the world, and the glory of them; And saith unto him 'All these things will I give thee, if thou wilt fall down and worship me'” (Matthew 4:8f). Satan is known in the Bible as the prince of this world,[39] and Satanists may feel that he can help them meet their needs and desires if they pray or work magic. They would also have to do what they could in everyday life to achieve their goals, however.
Theistic Satanists may try not to project an image that reflects negatively on their religion as a whole and reinforces stereotypes, such as promoting Nazism (found in a few groups), abuse or crime.[37] However, some groups, such as the Order of Nine Angles, criticise the emphasis on promoting a good image for Satanism; the ONA described LaVeyan Satanism as “weak, deluded and American form of ‘sham-Satanic groups, the poseurs’”,[40] and ONA member Stephen Brown claimed that “the Temple of Set seems intent only on creating a ‘good public impression’, with promoting an ‘image’”.[41]The order emphasises that its way “is and is meant to be dangerous”[42] and “[g]enuine Satanists are dangerous people to know; associating with them is a risk”.[43] In particular, there is argument over animal sacrifice, with most groups seeing it as both unnecessary and putting Satanism in a bad light, and distancing themselves from the few groups that practice it.[44]
Some groups like the Misanthropic Luciferian Order have criticized both the Church of Satan and the Temple of Set as “trying to make Setianism and the ruler of darkness, Set, into something accepted and harmless, this way attempting to become a ‘big’ religion, accepted and acknowledged by the rest of the Judaeo-Christian society”.[3] The order rejects ChristianityJudaism and Islam as “the opposite of everything that strengthens the spirit and is only good for killing what little that is beautiful, noble and honourable in this filthy world”.[3]

Diversity of beliefs within theistic Satanism[edit]

The internet has increased awareness of different beliefs among Satanists, and led to more diverse groups. But Satanism has always been a pluralistic and decentralised religion.[45] Scholars outside Satanism have sought to study it by categorizing forms of it according to whether they are theistic or atheistic[46] and referred to the worship of the Devil as traditional Satanism or theistic Satanism.[1] It is generally a prerequisite to being considered a theistic Satanist that the Satanist accept a theological and metaphysical canon involving one or more God(s) who are either Satan in the strictest, Abrahamic sense, or a concept of Satan that incorporates gods from other religions (usually pre-Christian), such as Ahriman. Some theistic Satanists believe in Satan as the All, a force filling the universe.[47] Many theistic Satanists believe their own individualized concept based on pieces of all these diverse conceptions of Satan, according to their inclination and spiritual guidance, rather than only believe in one suggested interpretation. Some may choose to live out the myths and stereotypes, but Christianity is not always the primary frame of reference for theistic Satanists.[48] Their religion may be based on dark paganleft hand path and occult traditions. Theistic Satanists who base their faith on Christian ideas about Satan may be referred to as “Reverse Christians” by other Satanists, often in a pejorative fashion.[49] However, those labeled by some as “reverse Christians” may see their concept of Satan as undiluted or sanitized. They worship a stricter interpretation of Satan: that of the Satan featured in the Christian Bible.[50] This is not, however, shared by a majority of theistic Satanists. Wiccans may consider most Satanism to be reverse Christianity,[51] and the head of the atheisticChurch of SatanPeter H. Gilmore, considers “devil worship” to be a Christian heresy, that is, a divergent form of Christianity.[52] The diversity of individual beliefs within theistic Satanism, while being a cause for intense debates within the religion, is also often seen as a reflection of Satan, who encourages individualism.[53]
A notable group that outwardly considers themselves to be Traditional Satanists is the Order of Nine Angles.[54] Controversy meant this group were mentioned in the press and books, as they claimed to practice animal sacrifice[55] and agreed with human sacrifice.[56] The Joy of Satan have some idiosyncratic beliefs about spiritual entities being extraterrestrials, valuing the work of Zecharia Sitchin. A group with very different ideology to the ONA is Satanic Reds, whose Satanism has a Communist element.[57] However, they are not theistic Satanist in the manner of believing in Satan as a god with a personality, but believe in dark deism,[58] the belief that Satan is a presence in nature. The First Church of Satan believe the philosophy propounded byAnton LaVey himself was deism or panentheism but is propounded as atheism by the leaders of the Church of Satan in order to distance themselves from what they see as pseudo-Satanists.[59]
One other group is the Temple of the Black Light, formerly known as the Misanthropic Luciferian Order. The Temple espouses a philosophy known as “Chaosophy”. Chaosophy asserts that the world that we live in, and the Universe that it lives in, all exists within the realm known as Cosmos. Cosmos is made of three spatial dimensions and one linear time dimension. Cosmos rarely ever changes and is a materialistic realm. Another realm that exists is known as Chaos. Chaos exists outside of the Cosmos and is made of infinite dimensions and unlike the Cosmos, it is always changing. Followers in the Temple believe that the realm of Chaos is ruled over by 11 dark Gods, the highest of them being Satan, all considered manifestations of a higher being. This higher being is known as Azerate, the Dragon Mother, and is all the 11 gods united as one. The Temple believes that Azerate will resurrect one day and destroy the Cosmos and let Chaos consume everything. The group has been connected to the Swedish black/death metal band Dissection, particularly its front man Jon Nödtveidt.[3] Nödtveidt was introduced to the group “at an early stage”.[60] The lyrics on the band's third album, Reinkaos, are all about beliefs of the Temple of the Black Light.[61] Nödtveidt committed suicide in 2006.[62][63]

Theistic Satanists may respectfully work with demons found in traditional grimoires.

Luciferian groups such as the Church of Lucifer and the Children of the Black Rose are particularly inspired by Lucifer (from the Latin for ‘bearer of light’), who they may or may not equate with Satan. While some theologians believe the son of the dawn, Lucifer and other names were actually used to refer to contemporary political figures, such as a Babylonian King, rather than a single spiritual entity[64][65][66] (although on the surface the Bible explicitly refers to the King of Tyrus), those that believe it refers to Satan infer that by implication it also applies to the fall of Satan.[67] The Church of the Black Goat believe Satan and Lucifer are the same being in his light and dark aspects. Some writers equate the veneration of Set by the Temple of Set to theistic Satanism;[1] however, the Temple of Set do not identify as theistic Satanists. They believe the Egyptian deity Set is the real Dark Lord behind the name Satan, of whom Satan is just a caricature. Their practices primarily center on self-development. Within the temple of Set, the Black Flame is the individual's god-like core which is a kindred spirit to Set, and they seek to develop. In theistic Satanism, the Black Flame is knowledge which was given to humanity by Satan, who is a being independent of the Satanist himself[68] and which he can dispense to the Satanist who seeks knowledge.[69]
The diversity of beliefs amongst Satanists, and the theistic nature of some Satanists, was seen in a survey in 1995. Some spoke of seeing Satan not as someone dangerous to those who seek or worship him, but as someone that could be approached as a friend. Some refer to him as Father, though some other theistic Satanists consider that to be confused or excessively subservient.[70] However, in the Bible Satan is called the father of his followers in John 8:44, and bad people are called "children of the devil" in 1 John 3:10. Satan is also portrayed as a father to his daughter, Sin, by Milton in Paradise Lost.
Many groups such as the 600 Club[45] are accepting of all types of Satanists, as are the Sinagogue of Satan, which aims for the ultimate destruction of religions, paradoxically including itself, and encourages not self-indulgence, but self-expression balanced by social responsibility.[71][72][73]
Theistic Satanism often involves a religious commitment[according to whom?] rather than being simply an occult practice based on dabbling or transient enjoyment of the rituals and magic involved.[33][74] Practitioners may choose to perform a self-dedication rite, although there are arguments over whether it is best to do this at the beginning of their time as a theistic Satanist, or once they have been practicing for some time.[75]
