I was born the way I am and I lived my life the way I chose.
My intelligence is innate and so are my talents. In fact all the parameters, which individualize a person, are innate, their cultivation and improvement is an individual task.
My life experience is due to my own decisions, my own actions and resulting reactions.
is my own.
I do not play well with others, nor did I ever used to, and I plan keeping it so.
I am best creative on my own, without direct outside interference.
I know how to appreciate value.
I do not follow.
I need to really know somebody, as far as socializing goes, in flesh and for some period of time, to decide if that person is worth being trusted, or worthy of my company and the implicit efforts.
There are only TWO living persons, whose opinions are of any importance to me."The Satanic Bible"
reflected a great part of me in it. Not all, of course, but that wasn't the purpose of the book in the first place, because there are as many interpretations, as there are individuals.
The other writings of Mr. LaVey did just the same. They did not change me though.
Would membership in the Church of Satan
What I could offer, eventually, is plenty, getting not much (if anything) in return, but the approval of the Church's members.
Does becoming a member make me "a real satanist", from CoS's point of view?
If I do not joint, am I not the real deal?
I would appreciate answers that offcially reflect the Church of Satan
Evasiveness, maliciousness and such will be understood for what they really are and treated accordingly.
Thank you in advance.
