I have found a video about Satanism on the internet. For the most part I believe it is legitimate, but there was something that I noticed that I’m not familiar with. As per board policy, I won’t post a direct link to the site but rather, I will give an excerpt from the video:

“Many Satanists also understand Satanism in terms of what can be called “Dark Doctrine”. This idea holds that Satan can be thought of as a dark force which permeates and motivates all matter and energy. This is not to be thought of as some spiritual entity, but rather a very real force in nature which exerts its influence on material existence. “

The quote speaks of “Many Satanists”, but I have never heard the term “Dark Doctrine”. I have read the Satanic Bible,as well as other texts, but do not recall ever seeing this term. My question is: is “Dark Doctrine” a real CoS term or was it created elsewhere? I don’t want to adopt a term that hails from a non-credible source.

If you would, PM me with the link and I'll do some research.

Offhand it seems to be a colorful reference to the Satanic philosophy etc, but I would like to hear it in full context.

It didn't take long to realize and confirm that this is a term used by a group that is pseudo-Satanic; they refer to their ideas and concepts as the dark doctrine.

Definitely not related to the COS.

I thought perhaps it was written in one of the other books, such as the Satanic Rituals. At one point I was considering adopting this term, but I had to be sure first. Thank you for your time Magister.

I've seen the term "Dark Doctrines" used loosely by COS members from time to time, but there's no such thing as "THE Dark Doctrines". They're not a specific set of books or anything. It's just a general term for any source of knowledge, perhaps completely overlooked by the common eye, that helps contribute to your own understanding of lesser and greater magic.
