Theistic Satanism

Theistic Satanism

There are those in the satanic Community who do not know what Theistic Satanism is. So from my point of view, and from what I have experienced, let’s me explain it to from my point of view.

The American Heritage Dictionary explains theism as this

Belief in a god or Gods, esp. belief in a personal God as creator and ruler of the world

Webster’s New Dictionary defines theism as this

Belief in divine creation of the universe without the denial of the revelation

Random House defines theism as

Belief in the existence of a god or Gods

Anyway you cut it, if you believe in a god or Gods you are Theistic. This goes outside of Satanism but will be handled later on in another topic.

I believe in Satan as a God, a force of nature, an entity throughout existence. Therefore I am a Theistic Satanist. However Theistic Satanism has a couple of sub categories to it. Yes there are two sects of Satanism that fall under Theistic. They are Spiritual (those believing Satan is a force and not tangible), and Traditional (knowing that Satan has given us the knowledge and adheres to it).

American Dictionary defines spiritual as

Of, realizing to, consisting of, or having the nature of spirit; not tangible or material

Concerned with or affecting the soul

From or relating to God

It goes on to define spiritualism as

The belief that the dead communicate with the living, as through a medium; a philosophy, doctrine, or religion emphasizing the spiritual aspect of being

Traditional is defined as

Of relating to, or in accord with tradition; adherence to tradition, esp. in cultural or religious practices; a system holding that all knowledge is derived from original divine revelation and is transmitted by tradition.

Spiritual Satanism is the sect of Theistic Satanism that doesn’t see Satan as a deity per se. They see him as an intangible being that is neither here nor there, but all around. Spiritual Satanists see Satan in everything. The way the earth takes care of herself, they life is always forming a new, and getting rid of the dying. They will not worship or have items that represent the being Satan, (well some may, I do not know). But I know that for then their spirituality plays a large role in it. How can you not be spiritual as a Theistic Satanist? It is our spirituality that allows us to rise above the masses and pursue more than the average person. Being in a state that allows you to see deeper into the material world. You can feel the energy that is around, you can feel the power from your prayers, the rituals that are being performed and the enlightment that comes from being in tune with the one. The knowledge that you receive from looking into the workings of yourself. Opening yourself up to higher thought, energy points, third eye awakening and soul recognition.

Traditional Satanists follow the Satanic ideology and conform to the adherents of Satanism. These Satanists try to live and follow the knowledge that Satan (as the name we know him now as), gives us. The knowledge we are given is that of self empowerment. The knowledge to improve one’s life, to live according to your guises (i.e. maintaining a job, education, physical health, mental health, emotional health and the like). To not take care of yourself, to over indulge in the pleasures we are privy to like drugs, alcohol, sex and food is being ignorant of ourselves. You can always enjoy yourself, but moderation is the key, respect for your vessel is the key. We can all make changes to better ourselves, and it takes time. To recognize that is a feat in itself. Your protection, quest for knowledge, self empowerment, self deification, is all made possible by the knowledge and push that Satan has given us to succeed with. He gives us the opportunity to be leaders, not followers. To do so is a travesty. The only sin I see is that of being ignorant to your own self realization. Sin isn’t owned by the JCI’s, it means doing a disservice to yourself morally or religiously. JCI’s are not the only religions out there, there are hundreds. To let yourself merely walk by in a cloud is doing yourself a disservice. To the force/God as well, especially when he gives you what is needed to progress higher than you have been.

So next time someone says I am not Theistic, I’m Spiritual or Traditional, they are actually saying I am a Spiritual Theistic, or Traditional Theistic Satanist. Catholicism broke down into Christianity and Christianity broke down into-Protestant, Mormon, Latter Day Saints, Baptist, Evangelist, Jehovah Witnesses and the like. They are all Catholics, just seen in different views.

Theistic Satanism is a religion that believes in Gods (Satan, Beelzebub, Azazael, Lilith, Baphomet and the lot). We have different sects of Satanism, groups, churches; all worshipping and serving the deity they believe as Satan. We are all Theistic Satanists. Theistic encompasses both Spiritual and Traditional. Traditionalists may not necessarily be as spiritual as the rest but their alliance to their faith is sound. They may choose to do rituals or not. It doesn’t make them any less a Theistic or a Satanist. Spiritualists may not use a specific name, but their rituals (whether they perform or not) are still strong. We are all Theistic, falling under that big ole umbrella of Satanism. Our ways of practicing differ from one another, but nevertheless we are all one. As a Theistic I do my prayers, perform rituals, talk to Satan (and anyone who believes in him can), and my other God/desses with no shame. I try to live my life in accordance to the knowledge that has been given to me, to the knowledge that has been made accessible to me.

I am a Theistic Satanist. It is now undeniable. No more am I mixture of them all, because in truth they are all one. I am me. I worship the deity known as Satan. I pray to him, talk to him, do rituals for and to him, as well as myself. I am a spiritual person, I am self aware, and I am a Goddess in my own right. I have the intellectual capability to be elite in learning, in absorbing all that comes my way, the finer things in life. Education has taken to a newer plateau, my experiences have taken me all over the world, my strength has guided me through phases of darkness and uncertainty and my faith has helped me recognize my worth.

I am a Theistic Satanist. I am a Reverend. Representing Satan at his fullest and most gracious. Everything I do, everything I am, everything I will become is because of the blessing he has bestowed on me. What type of person would I be to turn my back on him?
