"Satanism predates Christianity and all other religions."
If it predates all other religions why was it not recognized sooner?
Satanism was first created as a religion on the night of April 30th and the early morning of May 1st, 1966, on the Spring Equinox. The creator, Anton Szandor LaVey, created Satanism and also started the official Church of Satan.
"We know "Yaweh/Jehova" of the bible to be a fictitious entity, and the people behind coercing this lie, to be the true deceivers of humanity and the masters of lies. This is evident in the many contradictions within the Judeo/Christian Bible, revealing this text to be the work of human beings who had occult knowledge and infused it with power to make it credible, and to incite fear in order to control."
So why do there seem to be more lieing Satanists in the world then there are lieing Christians, Jews, and even Athiests?
"We are law abiding."
So why are their so many Satanists in jail/prison and so many more wanted for crimes and bragging about doing illegal things?
"We have found Satanism is the original religion of humanity. We have done our research. Satanism is based upon the ancient religions that predated Judaism and Christianity from hundreds to thousands of years."
Then why are the religions not listed? Paganism and Wiccanism are both NOT like Satanism, if those are the religions suggested. Also, Wiccans were not around until the late 1900's.
"Christianity was a reaction to the original Pagan religions, labeled as "Satanism" meaning "enemy/adversary" in Hebrew. If you read through the information contained within this website, we prove this."
Christianity branched off Judaism, not Paganism nor was it a "reaction" to Paganism. They were not labeled "Satanism" nor were the followers called "Satanists", time and time again the Pagans are called Pagans, exactly what they are and also what they themselves claim to be. JoyofSatan holds no proof, only "he said someone said" crap.
"The Original Gods [Demons] were unjustly labeled as monsters and branded as "evil" to keep humanity from spiritual knowledge. Because of this, the human race has drastically degenerated both spiritually and intellectually."
We've intellectually degenerated? So what happened to all the technology we had back then? We seem to have come along way for having been intellectually degenerating, in my opinion. Furthermore "evil" is a matter of opinion, and I have yet to see anything anywhere that supports the idea that Demons shouldn't be called Evil. Besides that, the Demons were never considered "gods" by any real and well-known religion.
"Spiritual Satanism is a life loving religion."
So why are there so many Satanists that take pleasure in the pain, suffering, and even the deaths of others? Why do they not show their sorrow for the loss of life when it is lost?
"The Judeo/Christian religion is a vicious hoax on humanity of catastrophic proportions. For a hoax to succeed there has to be a lack of knowledge on the part of the victim. The Christian religion and its cohorts actively suppress knowledge and free thought, encourage people to be slaves, and never advocate or teach anything for the betterment or advancement of humanity. As opposed to the stories of how the Nazarene healed people; Satan shows us how we can heal ourselves and perform so-called miracles, using our minds and the powers of our own souls."
It mentions several times in the Bible that we are to bow down to nobody and accept nobody as our Master. We worship our own Lord, but if you consider that "encouraging people to be slaves" then Satanism does the exact same thing so it encourages people to be slaves as well.
"It is obvious that Satan is not the "deceiver of humanity.""
It is obvious to me that he is.
And any Satanists who read this, if you continue to be Satanic without being able to prove what is written wrong you are following through blind Faith which is something many Christians have been attacked by your people for. :p
(This is in no way an attempt to 'attack' any individual, this is simply a list of quoted sentences and my replies. This is a copy&paste of a document I wrote after viewing the JoyofSatan site. This is being posted by request of a friend. Hope enjoyed the read.)
