    Default Geifodd's definition of Satanism.

    General Definition of Satanism

    By Geifodd ap Pwyll


    Satanism is a religion in which the individual is raised to personal godhood, free from enslavement to any other god or gods. This is a question not only of power, but also of ethics, morality, and psychological maturity. It is a pathway to metaphysical growth, but many mistake it as an excuse for egoistic irresponsibility. Those who make this mistake are usually the so-called "Satanists" who run around, professing their uncompromising hatred for Christians and Christianity, seemingly without any rational or logical basis of thought.

    By analyzing conventional religions according to their basic philosophical principles, Satanists tend to view these religions as representing the primitive longing of man to feel at "one" with the "Universal harmony" he perceives about him. It is believed that the problem arises from the phenomenon of human consciousness -- the ability to perceive and to assign meaning to thoughts and things -- and the way in which different metaphysical doctrines have approached this phenomenon throughout the centuries. Some were frightened by this phenomenon, feeling as if they were "separate" from the "natural order" of things, or that humankind had somehow "fallen from grace" and had to be "saved" or "re-included" into said order. This primitive ideology, which is found in many conventional religions, and that is generally termed the Right Hand Path, has inspired its adherents throughout the ages to destroy all and any phenomena or individuals who frustrated the so called "natural way of things" -- never realizing that Nature itself is chaotic and ever-changing.

    Others, however, interpreted the feature of human consciousness not as evidence of a separation from Nature, but as evidence that Nature itself is chaotic and disordered. These individuals saw fit to exalt this state of uniqueness and individuality and, with knowledge and appreciation of its power, worked to adapt the world to themselves, rather than the other way around. This ideology, the one to which Satanists adhere, is known as the Left Hand Path. Satanists reject the notion of conformity to some perceived rule of existence or external absolute, believing that no such absolute exists. They recognize that life itself is a continual series of changes and mutations, and they celebrate the ultimate catalyst for transformation: the Self as a unique entity unlike anything else in existence. The Satanist rejects the imaginary "natural order" and worships instead the Self, knowing that Nature itself is defined -- and constantly re-defined -- by the individual beings of which it is composed.

    Like Satan, the Satanist takes the place of God over his own life, an act which requires a great deal of ethical and psychological maturity. Instead of losing our individuality and independence to some divine universal "oneness," we choose to maintain, glorify, and expand that unique individuality to its furthest extent. This, the exaltation and evolution of the individual psyche, is a metaphysical process that Satanists refer to as Xeper ("KHEF-er"), an ancient Egyptian word which means "to Come Into Being." Xeper is the only "dogma" that is recognized in Satanism; other than this, all other aspects of Satanism -- such as beliefs and interpretations of Satan, the afterlife, etc. -- are left entirely to the discretion and decision of the individual practitioner. Hence why some Satanists would describe themselves as theistic, believing in a literal metaphysical entity named Satan or the Prince of Darkness, and others would describe themselves as atheistic, interpreting Satan as nothing more than a symbol or rich literary figure. Each individual Satanist determines his or her own methodology toward the evolution of their awareness (Xeper) according to their own personal experience, as Xeper is necessarily a personal and internal experience that cannot be taught, only learned. As Satanism is necessarily a self-based religion, it rejects all fixed ideologies and strives rather toward an atmosphere of "best possible premises" which are always subject to intelligent criticism, experimentation, and alteration.

    There are a few deranged souls out there who call themselves "Satanists" and who yet fall short of the true definition of Satanism. This is not the fault of Satanism or of Satanists, but of those individuals who attempt to "jump on the bandwagon" without really understanding the intensely metaphysical concepts of this spiritual path.
    Those who Fall will find their Heaven
    and will always be adored.

    Perhaps Theistic Satanism or Luciferianism, or even a brief overview of the Left Hand Path, but certainly not all of Satanism in any respect.

    Who exactly is this Geifodd anyway?

    @ Etumalku - The guy who wrote this article was from The Temple of Set. This was before The Temple considered Satan to be actually Set.

    I got this off of Diane Vera's Theistic Satanist website. It is supposed to show the root core of satanism - the Self - which results in a sort of left hand path... Just as there are many ways to achieve the Right Hand Path gnosis of ''one with the universe''... the Left Hand Path has many ways to achieve the gnosis of personal godhood. Some like Lavey Satanists need only to read the Satanic Bible while others such as The Temple of Set or Luciferians tend to follow magickal practices which exalt the mind/soul to godhood and achieve isolate consciousness.

    I like the very ending of this. If I would extend the concept that the person needs extreme measures to achieve this gnosis - I wonder if they would do better doing the opposite. So for example, the diabolists may need to actually become christian in order to achieve it or the hardcore extremist abrahamic faiths may need to follow the Left Hand Path.

    This article reminds me of the words of this cartoon-Laveyan in a video:

    "That's stupid... Satanism has nothing to do with Satan!"

    So, where is it you want to go with your statement? Or, more specifically, your choise of another mans word?

    What is your opinion? In your own words?

    There are no many "Satans". What's the point of taking the name of the Evil Angel of the Bible and giving it to the fantastic idol you worship or to your atheistic symbol?

    For example. Why LaVeyans call themselves "Satanists"? They don't worship Satan and the symbol they are using does not represent Satan (though they say it does) so what's the point of calling themselves "Satanists"? And I answer the question... Just to provoke. And then they call Christians hypocrites.

    No insult intended. I'm just trying to prove something not to argue.

    What's the point of this then ??. Why not instead give your own personal/subjective opinion about how you define satanism , or if you find this article incomplete or wrong, maybe you could share it with us....or maybe you did already??
    Sorry, I don't understand what point you're trying to prove...From what I understand Satanism is a concept and everyone has a subjective view about it...The more people share their view points, the more we learn about each other and the subject that is being discussed. We can choose to take it on board, if we find it true for ourselves or we can choose not to, if we find it not true for us...

    Satan is the Archangel of the Archangels of Evil in the Bible. Since someone doesn't worship Evil and doesn't believe in Satan's existance then why use the term "Satanist" to describe himself? I mean, LaVeyans claim Satan is a symbol. Why did they use Satan to be their symbol? We all know Satan is the represenation of Evil in the Bible, so since they claim they are not Evil and they don't worship Satan then why use Satan as a symbol?

    And we have Theistic Satanists from the other side, who claim that Satan has nothing to do with Satan of the Bible. Then why they give this name to the God they worship? "Satan" is used as a name only in the Bible.

    So if you don't believe in Satan of the Bible then why use this name for your symbol or God (idol)?

    This article is not wrong. The ideas of all these "Satanic" organizations are wrong because they use the term "Satanists" just to provoke and make people interrested to join their organization. They are just deceiving people.

    We all know the real Satanists are the ones I talked about. The real Devil Worshippers who believe in the original and true represantation of Satan... The Devil of the Bible.


    PS. In case you didn't notice I made one more post in my topic about Diabolists. I explained why this cult I talked about might have chosen the name "Brotherhood of 12 Angels".

    That's all from me for now...

    Best regards!

    Very interesting the different views, we can have about the same subject.
    I tend to agree with Soddex and espesially the last quote. It's good to hear though from different angles, as it gives the opportunity to reflect more on the issues surrounding Satanism...
