Satanism is a religion, right?

It was the last time I checked anyway.

We do have a Bible, right?

If Scriptures are meant to define and inspire its members then this would be my personal favorite from The Book of Satan.

2:7 "He that is slow to believe anything and everything is of great understanding, for belief in one false principle is the beginning of all unwisdom."

This verse acts as a reminder to constantly guard my mind from the flood of information that I receive from interacting with the herd on a daily basis.

If I allow the herd mentality of "mediocrity", "lack of personal responsibility" and "victim complexes" to weasel their way into my thought processes then my foundation as a Satanist is weakened, if not destroyed.

Hail Power!
Hail Strength!
Hail Satan!

What's Your favorite Bible verse?

Some of my personal favorites:

"And your spirit -- your immortal spirit -- shall live, not in an intangible paradise, but in the blood in sinews of those whose respect you've gained."

"Say unto thine own heart 'I am mine own redeemer'."

"Popular lies have been the most potent enemies of personal liberty. There is only one way to deal with them: Cut them out, to the very core, just as cancers. Exterminate them root and branch, Annihilate them, or they will us!"

A few that I fancy:

1:7 "No hoary falsehood shall be a truth to me; no stifling dogma shall encramp my pen!"

2:11 "Let established sophisms be dethroned, rooted out, burnt and destroyed, for they are a standing menace to all true nobility of thought and action!"

5:7 "Blessed are the destroyers of false hope, for they are the true MEssiahs--Cursed are the god-adorers, for they shall be shorn sheep!"

From the beginning of the Infernal Diatribe:

"...Their talk of "charity", when applied to His Infernal Majesty, becomes an empty sham - and most unfairly, too, considering the obvious fact that without their Satanic foe their very religions would collapse. How sad, that the allegorical personage most responsible for the success of spiritual religions is shown the least amount of charity and the most consistent abuse - and by those who most unctuously preach the rules of fair play!"

Stated beautifully and with elegance: The Devil is the Church's best friend.

From the Book of Satan III (my favorite stanza):

"Can the torn and bloody victim "love" the blood-splashed jaws that rend him limb from limb?... Love your enemies and do good to them that hate and use you - is this not the despicable philosophy of the spaniel that rolls upon its back when kicked?"

Justification for hate and revenge simply stated.

From the prologue section of the Book of Satan:

"So they all join hands in “brotherly” unity and in their desperation go to Valhalla for their last great ecumenical council. “Draweth near in the gloom the twilight of the gods.” The ravens of the night have flown north to summon Loki, who hath set Valhalla aflame with the searing trident of The Inferno. The Twilight is done. A glow of new light is borne out of the night and Lucifer is risen once more to proclaim: “This is the age of Satan! Satan rules the Earth!"


Many people whom are misinformed regarding our religion are quick to limit us to the realm of being "Anti-Christian". I admire this part of the Satanic Bible because of how it uses dramatic imagery to convey that Satanism is opposed to ALL spiritual religions throughout history. I can remember when I first read the Satanic Bible and how I was surprised to discover that LaVey had included imagery from many cultures around the world, as opposed to limiting himself to Christianity. Needless to say I was pleased!

Hail Satan!

My Favorite would be the whole chapter on "love and hate". At the very least it's what provided the greatest amount of clearity when I read it.

umm... all of it? lol
Every verse of The Infernal Diatribe packs the punch of a thousand fists and the distilled wisdom of my favorite philosophers.
If I had to choose, though, my favorite verse would be:

"Blessed are the valiant, for they shall obtain great treasure - Cursed are the believers in good and evil, for they are frightened by shadows!"

tekku hope i spelled that right your quote

"I break away from all conventions that do not lead to My earthly success and happiness".

Say unto thine own heart, "I am mine own redeemer".

now you hit the nail on the cross on this one. im fearful i suppose of too many satanic games to post my writtings on paper in respect of laveys name and satanic quote he wrote. sorta cornered the market on it however i agree totally with your well said quote (davjavue) (ch 29) any how i suppose because of fear of my enemies in the past id have to agree my sussess and happiness are more important then mind games and stuff. though if one day i am happy here i may post what i am speaking of. as a satanist i reseverve this right for my own happiness

dont get me wrong i am still being open minded and respect other peoples views as in the link below. however many times it is known respect is given and never taken for granted. i suppose my respect for this site i believe has been taken for granted among other sites. im standing know on the side of respect is earned not given due to past history at forums on the internet to many hungry aligaters with no smiles PEACE.

Only if one is a Christian. Dig into Judaism a little, and Satan comes off a lot different. He isn't the enemy of God. He's a civil servant, a working angel with a specific difficult function to perform, "the most faithful" as some put it. Rebellion? Angels are incapable of that sort of thing.

In Islam Shaitan isn't a deity. He's a djinn, powerful, beautiful, loves Allah, but suffers from an overabundance of pride. He's got the job of tempting the weak, given to him by God, but he isn't the Opposite, the Great Enemy the way he is to Christians.

With all due respect, the Satanic Bible was written in a particular time and place and came with the cultural matrix in which its author was brought up. It doesn't quite work the same way if one grew up with a different set of emotional reactions.

Satanism actually does correspond with the Jewish and Islamic versions of Satan quite well. The emphasis on justice in Satanism corresponds with the Jewish/Old Testament presentation of Satan as an "Adversary" and one who: 1. makes a case against things 2. Carries out retribution (ie. through Destruction rituals, lesser magic and Pentagonal Revisionism point #3.) As far as Islam goes, Satan plays a similar role to Judaism in some theology, but sometimes things some Muslims don't like (such as the USA) get labeled "the great Satan." My experience reading Islamic literature is Satan is used in a way similar to how he is in Christianity- as a tool to scare the faithful.

Have you come back after 4 years with an attempt to discredit Our Religion?

Are you so caught in the forest that you can not see the trees?

Are you aware of the fact that Satanism stands firm without the existence of any spiritual system, or devil for that matter?

Can you say the same for judaism, christianity and islam in regards to their satan?

I rest my case coopdevil

It seems that, after 4 years, you still have something stuck in your craw when it comes to Our Great and Mighty Founder Dr. Anton LaVey.

I'm not trying to discredit anything. Far from it. This in no way invalidates the truths exposed by the philosophy. It simply means that different symbols will need to be used to have the same effect on members of the previously-mentioned groups.

All religions are created by human beings. As such they are influenced by the world in which those men and women lived. Satanism was developed in 20th century America. It uses symbols and associations with which such people would be familiar.

The concept of Satan will have very different associations for people who come from a non-Christian background. Using that symbol will not affect the mind of a Hindu, San, Yazidi, Jew or Siberian Shaman in the same way it will affect a Hoosier or Texan. The verse has meaning for the correspondent because he grew up in a Western, urban, Christian, technological world. I'm pointing out that it would not mean the same thing at all to a person who didn't. This does not belittle Satanism or the people who practice it. It merely acknowledges simple reality, a mental clarity on which Satanism prides itself.

I think where most people get caught up, and apparently where ribbit has gotten lost, is by buying into the idea that Satan is the only concept that a Satanist recognizes.

Of course Herr Doktor used the word Satan and all it conjurs since he was alive when Christianity was the ruling religion of the world, however, he also pays his respects to the other ideas of that concept.

Satanism is not limited to Satan, instead, Satanism embraces all incarnations of that "Darkness" and uses the symbolism from all those manifestations of human nature. That all being said, Shaitan is quite a representation of evil and darkness in Islam, and let us not forget ol' Melek Taus from the same region. I will agree with you that Satan is not quite the king of hell in Judeoism as he is in Christianity, however, Lucifer and his rebellion are still recognized and accepted in the Old Testament and the Torah.

It doesn't matter what name and symbols you attach to that idea, it is still valid and it still burns just as strongly in the heart and mind of the Satanist. Do not forget ribbit, we are not devil worshippers, we are Satanists. We embody that "Darkness" better than any idea man ever deified could.

As far as the topic of this thread. I'd have to say the entire Verse I is my favorite part of the Book of Satan, it is an introduction of sorts that to me works just as the ringing of a bell 9 times in ritual.

Well, I don't really have a favorite verse. I like them all in their own light.

A very nice and accurate letter, Lu Sayfr.

I'm certainly not implying that Satanists worship the Christian devil. Not at all.

What I'm trying to say however awkwardly is that the reason the words have meaning for people from this society is that they grew up with a common set of symbols and ideas.

Truth is truth. The hard part is expressing it in a way speaks to others and makes the meaning clear.
