Transcript of Satanism

Anton Lavey The founder of the church of satan and author of many books. Modern Satanism is generally (though mistakenly) regarded as a creation of Aleister Crowley (1875-1947). Aleister was in fact a very prominent ceremonial magician who based his rituals partly upon Judeo-Christian principles. He was raised in a Plymouth Brethren family, but developed an early dislike of organized conservative Christianity. Satanic Beliefs Satan in his original pre-Christian Pagan forms is respected, as a principle rather than a deity.
Major emphasis is placed on the power and authority of the individual Satanist, rather than on a God or Goddess.
They believe that "no redeemer liveth" - that each person is their own redeemer, fully responsible for their own life.
They believe that one should live out their lusts and desires, and enthusiastically explore the "seven deadly sins" with other consenting adults.
They follow many beliefs, practices and rules of behavior which are in conflict with traditional Christianity, and essentially all other religions.
Uniqueness and creativity are encouraged. What are the main beliefs of Satanism? SATANISM How was Satanism formed? Do other religious views conflict with Satanic beliefs? It is not really known if other religious POV's conflict with Satanism, but Satanims is like another form of religion with their own beliefs and keep their practices and beliefs to them and other satanist. Is Satanism still practiced today? Satanism is still practiced today but it is more on their beliefs than any spiritual rituals. They live by the nine main beliefs and there are differnt forms of satanism but they dont associate with each other. Satanism Vs. Christianity Satanism is a different religion to Christianity. It has almost entirely different beliefs, difference sources and a different history. Its usage of words is different to that of Christianity. Satanism is not the worship of the Christian Satan, because then Satanism would be part of Christianity. In order to believe in the Christian Satan, you have to be a Christian. Satanists are not Christians, their beliefs are different. The "Satan" of Satanism is different to the Satan of Christianity. Just like when the Christians say "prophet", they do not mean the Muhammad or Zarathustra, they mean a Christian prophet because the others are not from their own religion. When Satanists say "Satan" they do not mean the Christian Devil. Satanists do not believe that Satan fell from heaven, because that is a Christian belief. There is no heaven to fall from, no God to do battle with, no hell to fall to. These are all ideas made up and used by Christians, and are not shared by Satanism.
