The belief that Satan is a deity

[from ]

Subject: The belief that Satan is a deity
       We believe in Satan as a sentient being, unlike the Church of
   Satan. You can pray to Satan to show him your respect, but do not
   complain to him because he will ignore you. You are supposed to
   solve your own problems, and can blame no one else for your
   faults. This is a basic view held by many Satanists You may tap
   into Satan's realm and use some of his unlimited energies in your
   quest to solve your problem(s) (magick), but that is just about
   all Satan can help you with. The responsibility of your life
   hangs on your shoulders, not some hollow god. Satan is our master
   and creator, and we should show him the respect that he deserves.
   Satan does not meddle in our affairs as these are far too

       We have been given the gift of life and sentience by Satan,
   we should not throw it away on dreams and illusions of something
   better after we die. We live now! So make the best of it! No one
   has come back from the dead (yet), so we have no way of knowing
   what, if anything, lies beyond death. We should not concern
   ourselves with it, as it has no present relevance

       There is no such thing as heaven. The psychic realm from
   which magick flows is Hell, and it is here that Satan resides.
   Again there is no paradise, no nirvana, so why concern ourselves
   about it? It is pointless. There is, however, a psychic realm, a
   realm which is entirely made out of energy. It is this that we
   tap into and use, when we practice magick.

       This is self-explanatory, we tolerate other religions because
   we know that their followers are merely blind sheep, weak and
   under the control of their power hungry leaders. However if they
   strike at us, we will strike back exposing them for what they
   really are.

       You are here because you belong to the elite of the human
   race. You are strong enough to throw away the false illusions of
   other religions, and seek the ultimate truth. You are strong
   enough to accept responsibility for your own actions instead of
   placing them on a wooden symbol.

   -The acceptance of all those who show the proper attitude.
   We accept anyone who shows, motivation, strength, and the right
   attitude. Weaklings be gone!
   -The alienation of all those who desire to undermine the CED, and
   are too weak to accept the truth.
   The following is a short extract from the Black Manifesto,
   available to registered members free of charge:

       A deity, if each of us was Satan there would be no point in
   having a faith since you would not care since you would be a god.
   If each of us were Satan we would have the power to rule the
   world: why has it not happened? Satan is an individual, you
   cannot have three million Satans running around. Ordinary people
   do not possess the power of gods. The whole point in having
   something to believe in, like Satan, is that you cannot prove or
   disprove its existence.
