Hello I have recently read The Satanic Bible, Satan Speaks!, The Satanic Rituals, and The Devils Notebook. The beliefs and values in these wonderful books are so well written and I feel that I agree with everything Anton LaVey writes about. However I am wondering If you proclaim yourself a Satanist do you have to believe that Satan just a metaphor as the Satanic Bible explains or is it okay to Think of him as a being of some sorts or him being ourselves. Ive racked my brain many nights thinking about the answer to this question. I do believe what Anton LaVey speaks about but for some reason I cannot grasp that he cannot exist in some form or another.I sort of feel that he could be ourselves. Id love to join the Church and apply for active membership but I feel I cannot until I am 100% sure of myself. I just feel the need to question everything. Any help on this rather difficult topic for me would be much appreciated. Thank you
