Satanism What is it??!

Post # 1
I am curious of these questions can someone help me.


What are your/their aspects?
What are your/their morals?
What are your/their beliefs?

When did such the first church arise?
What exactly does This religion even mean?
Also are their branch offs, otherly groups, and secret posses?



Reason I am asking is the media makes them look so bad, but in my opinion I think there's a story not being told, and another side that's to be heard could you all please enlighten me of this?

I am quite curious, and interested to know about all this it doesn't add up how it can be all bad there is worse things in the realms of society I shall say because religion is not a crime in my eyes. Be Blessed,

-Strive.

well I`m not sure if I can give answers to your questions in satisfactory manner but i`ll try.
-There aspects are difficult point at because they depend from group to group heck they are different for each individual but they can probably be named in one word "freedom"
-Morals are more or less same as for everyone else unless they belong to one of those more extreme groups, then all bets are off
-Beliefs are tricky cause, historically speaking satanism was actually any religious movement that appeared or persisted after Christian church first became united(exact year I`m afraid I do not know
-Basically this religion means that it`s followers do not fit the mold of time/culture/religion in witch they live
-For your last question I believe I gave plenty of info to guess on your own but in case your filing lazy, the answer is yes there are but there is no actual organization among them its just one big mess
I hope these answers were adequate.

There are two forms of Satanism. Theistic or Spiritual Satanism that believes satan as a god and he is kind and that the Christian god is evil/not real and Atheistic or LeVayan Satanism is where they worship themselves and use satan as a symbol

Both of which, from a historical point of view, developed more or less as a thing within the last few centuries. Though, there were always scattered "spiritual satanist" cults during the middle ages, they were generally not much of a thing. Of course, Christianity predates this significantly, as does Judaism, Islam, etc.

The whole thing, when looked at in comparison to global religions, is kind of like that rebellious sibling that has to try hard to be spooky because that's its niche.

It`s kinda hard to give specific information's because there is no one answer and no one doctrine that you can connect them with.

Hell here is a little peace of Intel exorcism within Christianity was actually considered a form of satanism for a long period of time.

All in all, answers are up to the follower to find, because they will be different for most.
Sorry I cannot give better answer than this.

It's cool any best guess where I could read more into what Satanism is, and isn't?

I have been doing my own research, and I must say it is a very deep, complex, and integrated practice as I have read, but still it is very quite interesting, and unlike anything I have come to read.

Be Blessed, and Thanks,

Accept all of that info about Satanism being rooted in ancient Sumeria is complete nonsense. Satan is a Hebrew word, meaning adversary. It does not refer to an individual being or entity at all.


Satan (n.) Look up Satan at Dictionary.com
proper name of the supreme evil spirit in Christianity, Old English Satan, from Late Latin Satan (in Vulgate in Old Testament only), from Greek Satanas, from Hebrew satan "adversary, one who plots against another," from satan "to show enmity to, oppose, plot against," from root s-t-n "one who opposes, obstructs, or acts as an adversary."

In Septuagint (Greek) usually translated as diabolos "slanderer," literally "one who throws (something) across" the path of another (see devil (n.)), though epiboulos "plotter" is used once.
In biblical sources the Hebrew term the satan describes an adversarial role. It is not the name of a particular character. Although Hebrew storytellers as early as the sixth century B.C.E. occasionally introduced a supernatural character whom they called the satan, what they meant was any one of the angels sent by God for the specific purpose of blocking or obstructing human activity. [Elaine Pagels, "The Origin of Satan," 1995]


In the past, I've tried to research this connection to see if there was any validity to it because... well, that's fascinating. Unfortunately all that I could find was the "proof" offered by Spiritual Satanists all claiming the same thing. If you attempt to look up Enkism, you essentially just find more Spiritual Satanist sites saying the same thing as well.

Having never found any real documentation regarding this supposed history, it appears to be fabricated to legitimize a faith.

The connection between Satan and Truth in Sanskrit is false. It all traces back to The Joy of Satan, which pretty much disregarded the fact that it is originally a Hebrew word to create this definition.

Sanskrit has Sana, Satya, and similar variations, in a wide range of words. But nowhere does it have Satan directly translating into "truth." This is just a bastardization of a Sanskirt root to again serve the purpose of legitimizing a new cult/religion.
