Strength can come in many different forms, but ultimately, being strong is about being able to survive and thrive in life, that is, being able to conquer obstacles and problems, and indulge fully in life. Any number of qualities, traits, or abilities can endow one with or allow one to exercise superiority or strength, so obviously, it's not *just* about being in tip-top physical shape.

I love strength.
I love having it, I love gaining it, and I like seeing others use it.

Personally I would define 'Satanic Strength' as strength in all areas of life, physical, mental and emotional. Be the best you can be.
I consider myself strong because of the large amount of crap I've been through , especially with highschool... I survived it, I graduated, I have learnt more about human behavour there than any scientific fact could tell me.
Thats more than some of my peers were able to do. I am also physcially stronger than most females my age and above, I always have been and I love working out and maintaining this...
Also strength of will. Very important. I knew I was going to graduate, I knew there would be alot of crap to get there. No two ways about it. It was going to be done. My will kept me alive.

Strength means survival.

Well put. No matter what else you may have or may think you have in life, you're just plain fucked if you can't survive and that's all there is to it.

Can you do what you want to do? Have what you want to have?
Can you protect what you love against those who would take it away?
Are you master of yourself? (This is not the same as being no one else's slave)

This is strength.

Strength is not necessarily absence of weakness. Everyone has weaknesses, the important thing is to be able to overcome them, or turn them into an advantage if overcoming is not possible. Self overcoming, this is strength.

What does strength mean to me? Strength is the eternal flame that burns inside of me; that flame of pure passion for life. It is a force of initiative to be the best I can be. It is my audacious desire to make the most of my life. It is my ability to achieve the goals I set for myself and the responsibility I choose to have for my own life. Satanism is my strength, but moreover, I am my strength, and I am because I choose to be. My strength is my willpower, it is my soul, and it is the power of the God that I am.

Am I only dreaming? Or is this burning an eternal flame?

I think Satanic strength is also about a strong personality: Be yourself, don't allow others to tell you what to think or how to live, learn from your own mistakes and become the best that you can be. To quote another corny pop song:
"If I fail, if I succeed,
At least I lived as I believe!"

Be your own wo/man, your own god -and as much as some people might hate you, they will respect you. More importantly, you will respect yourself.

I think strength of will is the first and most important. All other kinds of strength derivate from that one.

Strength is when life knocks you down and on your way back up you smite life back with all your force! It is when you view your hardships not as problems, but as challenges that will make your life better in some way.


Hail Satan!

The first page of www.churchofsatan.com says "were looking for a few outstanding indiviguals". I think that means strong in every aspect you can strengthen. Thats how I operate.

I suspect...

and the game is not aquatic...

Why must one ask a question such as this?
Someone needs to know how to be strong?

Strength is whatever it takes to win, whether its brute force, clever thinking, gratuitous displays of T&A, or any combination thereof.

Simple as that.

The most logical answer I found here.

I think that different traits can turn powerfull willed persons into
certain title baring entities. for instance, add imagination and
ampirical thought and you might end up with a genious.
add charisma and manipulation, you might end up with a leader. etc...

(Sure, it takes more then that, but those seem to be the basics. the "cookie dough" [misspell?])
