depends on what branch u choose to follow as with Christianity there are many different branches of satanism
In short it doesn't warn you about any consequences of immoral behaviour gives you freedom to rape who you want kill whom you desire to and show no mercy and plus after death you won't be judged on that its more like thinking of the world without having jails and no police forces an uncivilized barbaric one !
it's just as dumb as every other religion, at least satanists don't tell me I am going to hell, so they're better than Christians and Muslims in that respect.
It gives the message of hate and vengeance which is evil and would eventually result in chaos and destruction where as message of love and forgiveness is good and results in a peaceful and loving society.
I say that satanism is evil because it is tied to Christianity but Satan is the bad guy in the Bible so why would you worship him?
while I agreed that satanism was evil I'd still like to inform you that there are satanist churches that are certified and confirmed in Texas there was one just three doors down from my church.
this is kind of a void argument. there aren't any confirmed satanist churches. anyone who choses to worship Satan does so independently or in a very small group.
Satanism was named so because the name Satan means adversary. I wouldn't say that is misleading.
Also Anton LaVey (the founder) realized that you need showmanship in order to get attention. So he used what he did in order to spread his message faster.
How are they evil?
Also, if so, shouldn't we change the name to better represent the group? One that is more fitting and less terrifying...
Wasn't Satanism branded by theists who didn't like the way the group was acting? Isn't the name misleading? This is only what I've heard, though I cannot provide any source. I must've read it somewhere.
it seems a you go against jesus. Jesus us good, the opposite of good is evil. hate is also a form of evil.
I will say that most satanist teachings are evil, even if they are indirectly evil.
There is a lot to Satanism therefore a lot to define. You will also find the definition will be different from Satanist to Satanist. But for me I would say Satanism is living for yourself rather than for others, worrying about those close to you rather than someone who means nothing to you.
Also thinking in a more naturalistic manner, vengeance rather than turning the other cheek, vital existence rather than spiritual pipe dreams, hate to those who deserve it instead of love wasted on ingrates.
Satanists are not devil worshipers. We are Satanists first, and atheists second. We do not believe in a higher power, god, devil, or any other spiritual being.
what do you define Satanism as?
