What You Should Know About Satanism

Satan. The Christian Bible describes him as the devil, the serpent, the tempter. He exists only as the antithesis to God and all that is righteous and holy, his sole purpose is to lead people away from the truth and into a sinful, dark life. Satan is all at once an active opponent, “your adversary the devil prowls around like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour” 1 Peter 5:8 and a silent force, filling the minds and hearts of those who stray from the righteous path “whoever makes a practice of sinning is of the devil, for the devil has been sinning from the beginning. The reason the Son of God appeared was to destroy the works of the devil.” 1 John 3:8. There are many passages in the bible describing Satan, but they all agree- the devil is evil.

So, if you ask your grandparents, the local pastor, or almost anyone living in the Bible Belt, they will most likely tell you that Satanists are evil people seeking to tear good-hearted Christians away from their holy lives. When the term Satanists comes to mind, the thought that springs up might be of goth-looking folks performing devilish rituals, sacrificing animals and listening to death metal music. Unfortunately that is a stereotype that is just not founded on reality.

Satan to us is a symbol of pride, liberty and individualism, and it serves as an external metaphorical projection of our highest personal potential.  – The Church of Satan

Satanism was first established in 1966 by Anton Szandor LaVey from his home in San Francisco. LaVey had been a circus performer for many years before settling in San Francisco and devoting himself to the study of magic and the occult. In 1969 he released The Satanic Bible, followed by The Satanic Witch in 1971, and Satanic Rituals in 1972. Despite how those titles may sound, they aren’t how-to guides for black magic or devil worship. Rather, they lay the framework for a religion that is based on worship of one’s self, with rituals thrown in for a bit of added drama. From Time Magazine:

The members invest themselves with some of the most flamboyant trappings of occultism, but magic for them is mostly psychodrama —or plain old carnival hokum. They invoke Satan not as a supernatural being, but as a symbol of man’s self-gratifying ego, which is what they really worship. They look down on those who actually believe in the supernatural, evil or otherwise.

 The biggest take-away from what Satanism really is, is that Satanists do not worship Satan. They don’t even believe he exists. Satan is used more as a symbol of Satanists’ place outside of the boundaries of traditional religion, their rebellion against rigidity, and their distaste for the supernatural. In fact, Satanists largely believe that religion can and should be separated from supernatural beliefs, as a religion should provide the framework for how to live a moral life with community and culture divorced from traditional superstitions. Their faith is in the tangible world, a materialistic view rooted in science and critical thinking. According to the Satanic Temple:

To embrace the name Satan is to embrace rational inquiry removed from supernaturalism and archaic tradition-based superstitions. The Satanist should actively work to hone critical thinking and exercise reasonable agnosticism in all things. Our beliefs must be malleable to the best current scientific understandings of the material world — never the reverse.

Satanists have been in the news recently for attempting to erect statues of Baphomet (Satanism’s prevailing symbol) next to Christian statues in Oklahoma and Detroit, and a “snaketivity scene” in Michigan. Because Satanism’s focus is more on worship of one’s self, their goal with erecting these symbols and statues is to ensure that their voice and the voices of any other religion are heard as clearly as the majority religion. From he Detroit Satanic Temple:

Satanists, asserting their religious rights and privileges where religious agendas have been successful in imposing themselves upon public affairs, can serve as a poignant reminder that such privileges are for everyone. We understand that self-identified Satanists deserve just as much consideration as any other religions group. We are a sincere movement that stands in defiance of the unopposed, dogmatic moral legislation from a singular powerful religious voice. We refuse to be enslaved by a theocratic system, which openly seeks to control and destroy sexuality, individual autonomy and critical thinking. As the Eternal Rebel once defied the tyrant god, we too will rebel.

Satan is symbolic of the Eternal Rebel in opposition to arbitrary authority, forever defending personal sovereignty even in the face of insurmountable odds. –The Satanic Temple

Satanism isn’t all rebellion and distrust for authority, however. Satanists readily celebrate holidays such as Christmas and Halloween, though their number one holiday is each member’s own birthday. There are no specific rituals or required attendances, each member is simply to do what makes them happy on holidays they choose to celebrate. As most holidays have been secularized and adapted from old pagan holidays, Satanists have no problem celebrating them in “traditional” fashions, though they do not see Christmas as the birth of Christ, rather as a time to be with loved ones.

There are no physical locations of Satanic temples, churches, grottos, or even meeting-houses. For a time after its creation, LaVey used his own San Francisco home to hold meetings, but there are no longer buildings that are open to the public. As the religion is based on self-worship and eschews tradition, meeting for worship rituals would be against the core foundation of Satanism.

While different Satanist practice in different ways and believe slightly different things, much like the difference between Protestant Christians and Roman Catholics, the core of Satanism is the same. They live by Nine Satanic Statements, or Seven Fundamental Tenents, which focus on a rebellious, materialistic and critical thinking mindset. Overall, their mission is to “encourage benevolence and empathy among all people.” So, Satanism isn’t the devil-worshipping black magic occult religion bible-thumpers may lead you to believe, it is just a bunch of people who believe in themselves above all.

    • FLORIDA FLOODING INFORMATION
      —————————————————————————

      Rob – OK. You’ve talked about the pole shift. A lot of people . . . Things, of course, have changed with timelines and stuff. At some point in the future, and I know it’s kind of classified, but at some point in the future, Florida is very low, people in Florida were wondering, “At some point there may be some flooding of Florida, but will the people be given a notice of this?” Would this, I mean a small earthquake of a not so drastic nature could submerge Florida. I think the highest mountain in Florida is like 900 feet.

      COBRA – Yes, people don’t need to worry about Florida. If some flooding would occur, people would be warned long in advance, especially for the real, more I would say, if a certain event would be about to happen that would influence the whole Florida people would be warned and it is not going to happen before the Event.

      Rob – OK. That’s really good news. Cobra, with a lot of things in the mainstream media, the propaganda machines still running full speed, and all this stuff going on with the elections, could you please tell us, do you have any information? Will something strong occur to prevent the elections in the America? It really seems pretty frightening if we have a Clinton or a Trump or any one of the Republicans running for president. Do you think the elections are going to take place this year, or is it unknown?

      COBRA – OK, regarding elections, in a way it is not important who is the President because the President always, I would say since Eisenhower days, he is just the puppet of the Cabal. So it doesn’t matter if it’s a Democrat or Republican or who gets to be elected, because what is important is that those who are behind who control the game, need to be removed, and that would influence the actions of the current President, whoever that will be.

    ‘He exists only as…’ is the question.

    Much rightly overturning clarity here and of course me; “but…

    Alex – don’t y’all just-hate-him – Jones went all history-teacher yesterday and did one clinical break-down Obv. according to his research. Devastating stuff. About time he did this. Has me revising and filling out the holes in my pop-thinking. I go two-ways re what’s dubbed, S-ism: Misunderstandings need shaking out and therefore, ain’t so… in what I most oft-read, explaining what’s what. And yet, a niggling need (and lead) not to underestimate Satanism, as broadly-explained in the ‘-ism’ part of this, undo-myth-understandings post. I think there’s a lot about meaning-becomes, what groups or even we, might or otherwise, invest in terms and symbols. Therefore intellectual understanding and meanings, carefully placed alongside this.

    Understandably, I’m in reaction to bonkers-church culture that – as noted here – is all-seeing stereotypes. Yet, the lengths and depths of those I reckon, name themselves and practice Satan/ism and overall, if more-atheist or mixing it up with forces-personalities unseen and other? Not at all sure. Though, do go with the elite-base, knowingly singing to concept-Satan. With Luciferianism their think-being-smart, interpretations. All affirmed along by documents from old and/or forgeries. I suspect there are two main different versions. All in all – But God… – we’re under ‘satanic’ attack.

    But then of course, I would write that, wouldn’t I…

  2. Dublinmick says:

    Well thank you Mark, M-16 software. What would we do without you?

    After this not so obvious example of cyber warfare. Well hell, what can you say?

    Bubalagububehwhaa. wtf comes to mind

    • dkblue says:

      That’s funny DM, at first reading ‘marks’ comments i tried so hard to make sense of them… but what you just did, outing a softwarebot makes perfect sense!
      You have to admit their efforts are amusing.

  3. Dublinmick says:

    They never stop

    Why should you?

    • This LaVey satanism discussed above. Clearly somethings wrong. Either this isnt satanism. Or the J version, of ritual sacrifice , isnt satanism, but defined as something else.
      The LaVey version makes one question does satan really exist?
      Yet we know from yr planned parenthood article, witches, covens, demons, are going on in the lower astral planes, and a real battle between good and evil is happening. So Lavey satanism seems a silly distraction from the real Enemy at hand.
      Tried to paste sections from.yr recent tarrarush posting on here, but couldnt. You spelled things out very well in it, on many matters. Must touch a nerve

    • Dublinmick some interesting stuff below, let me know any thoughts you get on any of it. What he says about Sitchin esp. Discernment required of course. Eg for galactic confederation read……good faction of the SSP. Even though this prob a cabal clever disinfo guy, dont dismiss Cobra completely. Some very interesting stuff below
      ————————————————

      Rob – OK. Thank you. In the Pleiadian ships, Dr. Bell was always talking that they’re powered by sound and you mentioned that the tachyons actually couldn’t really be detected so much on the physical plane. Does this have to do with the kind of the eternal nature of the living sound current in the universe as they call it, the word of creation that they’re tuning into? Is a tachyon associated…

      COBRA – No, no no. Tachyons cannot be detected because I would say science on this planet at this stage can only detect anything with a few basic interactions – interactions with electromagnetic force. You see most detectors are using protons. They are using electricity and magnetism, and tachyons do not interact with those forces, so you can not see them. They do not produce electricity, and they do not interact with a magnetic field. It’s not easy to detect them. They can be detected by their influence on subatomic particles. If scientists would know where to look, they could detect them easily even now.

      Rob – Thank you. Next question is about bees. I think you talked about this before. Obviously there’s tremendous evidence that they’re being decimated. Can you talk about the bee situation now and how critical that is and what that means for pollination of plants? Are there plans by the Resistance to help this problem? What’s going on with the bees?

      COBRA – Actually, the Resistance is already doing something and the situation has been steadily improving for the last year or so.

      Rob – Very good. “Are the dimensions splitting now as part of the process of cleaning up earth and the baddies being removed, people being sent to different dimensions?”

      COBRA – No.

      Rob – I didn’t think so. “How can we be sure of that and can these people living on different parallel realities still access the main reality or are they locked up from us?”

      COBRA – The whole idea of parallel reality is actually the idea of different dimensions. Of course we have the physical plane, we have the etheric plane, astral plane, mental plane and these are in a way parallel realities but they all are connected with the unified field. We could say that they are all aspect or facet of the same reality that comes from the source and interacts with the contingency and all that the direction has manifested. They all obey the same spiritual and physical principles.

      Rob – Yes. You are familiar with Corey Goode’s latest interview in which he reveals that Zecharia Sitchin’s information was for the most part contrived.

      COBRA – I’m aware of this and this is exactly what I have stated in interviews with you 1 or 2 years ago.

      Rob – Yes, and that is exactly what Dr. Frank Stranges said, and it kind of puts the story of the Anunnaki in question. Is there any truth to the story of Enlil and Enki? Is that representing any type of interference from certain galactic forces despite that tale being woven in falsely by the Illuminati?

      COBRA – I would suggest everybody just discard the whole Zecharia Sitchin story completely.

  4. bow says:

    Satanists have no problem celebrating them in “traditional” fashions, so what is traditional fashions…..

    As far as I understand, there are the selfish satanist. Those that put themselves and family first even if that’s to the detriment of anyone.

    The there’s the sick sick kiddyfidling, child trafficking, child murdering an munching dmt junkies. Overly fond of masks. Perhaps they can’t stand to see there own faces.

    This article shouts distraction. Poor little scum making cover stories. Well serves you right generational scum gets no sympathy from me.

    Evil exists an it runs the world.
    But that is changing. What’s happening with queenies trial. I can’t find any thing about it but heard she’s now on trial for child related crimes. If anyone can direct me, that would be great.

  5. Dublinmick says:

    Adam I have no knowledge of pleadian or tachyon ships.

    When I see this, I discard everything Cobra and Rob say.

    Rob – Yes, and that is exactly what Dr. Frank Stranges said, and it kind of puts the story of the Anunnaki in question. Is there any truth to the story of Enlil and Enki? Is that representing any type of interference from certain galactic forces despite that tale being woven in falsely by the Illuminati?

    COBRA – I would suggest everybody just discard the whole Zecharia Sitchin story completely.

    Are we to discard everything on our oldest written documents of recorded history, the Sumerian tablets, because well eerrrr Rob and Cobra say so? 🙂

    Zionism = Satanism:
    An Israeli Seeks “Intervention”

    April 4, 2016.

    TO MY FELLOW ISRAELIS – AN OPEN LETTER

    http://www.thetruthseeker.co.uk/?p=131296

    • Chrissie Sattva says:

      “I have put my words in your mouth, and covered you in the shadow of my hand. Zion, you are my people.” – (Isaiah 51:16)

      You’re very wrong.

      Zionism and the NWO agenda is 100% Judaism and it’s very consistent with the Torah (Old Testament). Stop falling for distractions. Satan nor Satanists have nothing to do with it.

      The future glory of Zion – Isaiah 60:2-21
      “Darkness will cover the earth, and thick darkness covers the nations. But the LORD glory appears over you. Your heart will tremble and rejoice. For the riches of distant lands will belong to you and the wealth of gentiles will come to you. Foreigners will come to rebuild your towns, and their kings will serve you. Your gates will stay open day and night to receive the wealth of gentiles, and their kings led captive. Nations that refuse to serve you will be utterly destroyed. The children of your oppressors will come bowing before you. I will bring you gold instead of bronze. I will bring you silver instead of iron, bronze instead of wood, and iron instead of stone. All your people will be righteous, and they will possess the land permanently. Foreigners will feed your flocks and plow your fields and tend your vineyards. You will be called priests of the LORD.”

      “The Restoration of Zion” it speaks about when Zion (NWO) is restored that Gentiles will be serving the Israelites, and they will be against it because they don’t know Jehovah’s true intentions or plan. Then Jehovah will gather them and send those of Zion out to kill them and take their possessions : “Many nations gather against you. They say: ‘let’s dishonor Zion.’ They don’t know the thoughts of the LORD or understand his plan. He will bring them together like cut grain on the threshing floor. Get up and crush the nations, people of Zion. I will make your horns as hard as iron and your hoofs as hard as bronze. You will smash them into small pieces. You will devote to the LORD the spoils you take from them, and dedicate their wealth to the sovereign ruler of the whole earth.” (Micah 4:11-13)

      Psalm 2:1-10
      Why do the Gentiles rage, and the peoples imagine a vain thing? Their kings take their stand against the LORD and against his anointed, saying: “let us tear off their shackles from us, and cast off their chains.” He who sits in heaven laughs, the LORD scoffs at them. In his anger he rebukes them, and in his wrath he terrifies them : “I have set my king on Zion, my holy mountain.” Let me announce the decree of the LORD that he told me : “Ask of me, and I will give you the Gentiles as your inheritance, the ends of the earth as your possession. You will break them with an iron rod, you will shatter them like pottery. Be wise; receive instruction, you judges of the earth.

      Psalm 110:1-6
      Sit at my right hand until I make your enemies your footstool. The LORD will extend your mighty scepter from Zion. Rule over your enemies. The LORD has sworn an oath and will not take it back. He will judge among the Gentiles and will fill places with dead bodies.

      Psalm 66:3-7
      Say unto God, How terrible are you in your works! through the greatness of your power your enemies will submit themselves unto you. Everything on earth will worship you.

      Psalm 47:1-9
      O clap your hands, all you people; shout unto God with the voice of triumph. For the LORD most high is terrible; he is a great king over all the earth. He shall subdue the people under us, and the nations under our feet. He chooses our inheritance for us, the glory of Jacob whom he loves. God reigns over the Gentiles; God sits upon the throne of his holiness. The rulers of the world have gathered together with the people of the God of Abraham, for God has authority over the rulers of the earth.

      Isaiah 61:6
      “You will eat the wealth of the Gentiles, and in their riches you will boast.”

      Jehovah’s Promises To His Chosen Ones – Deuteronomy 7:14-26
      “You’ll be blessed among all the nations. There’ll be no infertility among you, not even among your herds. The LORD will keep you from having any kind of illness. He will not strike you with any diseases. Instead, he will strike all your enemies. You are to utterly destroy everyone whom the LORD your God will deliver to you. Don’t have pity on them nor serve their gods. The LORD your God will also send hornets after them until all the survivors and those hiding from you are destroyed. Do not be terrified by them, for the LORD your God, who is among you, is a great and awesome God. Little by little he will force these nations out of your way. You won’t be able to wipe them out quickly. Otherwise, you would be overrun with beasts. The LORD your God will hand them over to you and will throw them into great confusion until they are destroyed. He will hand their kings over to you, and no one on earth will even remember their names. No one will be able to stop you. You will destroy them all. The images of their gods you are to burn in the fire. Do not covet the silver and gold on them, and do not take it for yourselves, or you will be ensnared by it, for it is detestable to the LORD your God. Don’t bring any detestable thing to your house, because you yourself will be utterly destroyed along with these detestable things. You must absolutely abhor and detest all of it, because it has been devoted to destruction.”

      “When we come into our kingdom it will be undesirable for us that there should exist any other religion than ours of the one God with whom our destiny is bound up by our position as the chosen people and through whom our same destiny is united with the destinies of the world. We must therefore sweep away all other forms of belief. Generations will hearken to our preaching of the religion of Moses, that, by its stable and thoroughly elaborated system has brought all the peoples of the world into subjection to us.” ​- (NWO PROTOCOLS OF ZION)

      In 1991 George W. Bush, the same person who supported the New World Order and made it clear that IT WILL happen, signed public law 102-14 which asserts that the Noahide Laws are the “basis of American civilizations” and that it’s a responsibility to transmit these values to future generations, and that at some future date and time the president of the USA with other heads of state will sign an international scroll pledging to return the world to JEWISH (not Satanic) teachings by use of charity and education. Those who worship any other Gods than Jehovah-Yahweh will be decapitated.

      “They entered into a covenant to seek the LORD with all their heart; whosoever would not seek the God of Israel will be put to death, small or great, man or woman. All Judah rejoiced for they have sought him and he was found of them: and the LORD gave them rest. (2 Chronicles 15:12-15)

      “To me every knee shall bow, every tongue shall swear allegiance.” (Isaiah 45:23)

      “And the LORD will be king over all the earth. On that day his name alone will be worshiped.” (Zechariah 14:9)

      “On that day I shall erase the names of the idols from the land, they will no longer be remembered. I shall remove the prophets and the unclean spirit from the land. If anyone prophesies, then his father and mother who gave birth to him shall say, ‘you shall not live, for you have spoken falsely in the name of the LORD’ and his father and mother shall pierce him.” (Zechariah 13:2-3)

      “Say unto God, how terrible are you in your works! through the greatness of your power your enemies will submit themselves unto you. Everything on earth will worship you. His eyes keep watch on the nations. Let not the rebellious rise up against him.” (Psalm 66:3-7)

      “The LORD will be terrible unto them: for he will famish all the gods and men shall worship him, every one from his place, even all the heathens.” (Zephaniah 2:11)
