A rather contorted question, i accept, but asked with honesty.

What does Satanism mean for you?
And why do you follow this path?

I am not a member of the CoS, yet. I feel i need to speak with actual members before making any decision.

What i am particularly interested in, is whether you are into this to benefit yourself, or benefit your society? and what your logic is behind that.

Sincerely,
Twoballcrane.

PS. i reserve the right to challenge people. This is not to cause bad feelings or create problems, i simply feel it is my duty to question everything, to find the truth.

Thankyou.

Have you read The Satanic Bible yet?

Regardless of anyone else's reasons for being a Satanist, this is the work that explains why anyone would consider themselves one.

Either you see yourself in that work, or you do not. Satanism, being an individualist's religion, you must be satisfied with your own reasons.

If you had read the Satanic Bible you would already know the answer to your question about Satanists being members of the Church for the benefit of themselves or society.

You should do some studying first and then ask questions.

My society and the individuals who I surround myself with benefit from their association with me.

I have known Christians who haven taken their valuable time to visit jails and try to convert criminals into their death cult. That I can understand because the mythological Christ was a criminal too. Capitol punishment was the result.

Satanism is a selfish, carnal, law abiding religion and is based on the individuals desires. It requires no need to proselytize and all that I have mentioned and have not mentioned here means a lot to me.

I couldn't give a fuck about society. I refer you to my current signature.

However, members of the Church of Satan who are employed in law enforcement and other areas of public servitude may very well care about society.
