This is where most people miss the boat on Satanism.

Being God in Satanism simply means choosing yourself to be the most important person in your world (as opposed to Jehovah, Jesus, or whatever).



In the past if I tried to explain the concept, people would ask, "How are you your own God? Did you create yourself?" It really illustrates the gap between the "normies" and us. Their idea of Godhood is so silly. Narrow. Keeps them from recognizing the things they put in positions of Godhood in their lives.

Shade,

Exactly. Physical age doesn't necessarily reflect mental maturity. I myself have been guilty of it at times.

As I always say, I'm 38, going on 18.

HS!

Indeed!

I skim the bottom of the literal age pool here at LttD.

With age comes experience.
With experience comes Wisdom.

Intelligence, however, seems to know no age.

I wonder if we might say that every person is, ultimately, their own God. Some recognize/admit that; others project themselves onto the great screen in the sky, in nature or even in Hell.

I disagree.

People who put others (or an other) before themselves are not controlling their own lives and are not their own gods. They are pawns.

I really meant “I wonder”. I am not arguing with what you said. I am following a thought, and am looking for input.

I find what you said of interest, and definitely helpful. Thank you.

Here is where I am going with this.
You know how we talk about a masochist getting what he wants when we attack him...I am thinking of someone's need to be controled being fulfilled by a "demanding god".
This thought is still somewhat unformed. I wonder if someone without the need to be controlled would fall into that trap.
That is where I am trying to flesh the idea out. Could even a demanding god be a projection of their need...part of themselves?
Or...was that last cup of coffee one too many?

I would make a distinction between the masochist who knows that helping others to his own (apparent) detriment satisfies him and the masochist who truly destroys themself.

Being a God comes from control. If a person allows others (even invisible, ambiguous, arbitrary others) to control them they are not behaving as a God but as a disciple.

[I am not talking about listening to your boss because he is your boss, I am talking about choosing which boss you will work for. I can not control the tasks my employer might have me do or the obligations my country may require me to fill. I can, however, decide which career I want to follow, who I want my boss to be, and which country I will fill obligations for. The pawns I mentioned earlier, do not allow themselves these choices and simple do as they are told by whoever tells them first, or more convincingly.]

I am probably trying to look for a unique perspective that is not legitimate.

Thank you for your input. You have been helpful.

If you come up with a more coherent position please don't hesitate to share it. Even if only by PM. I am still a little foggy on your position.
