I don’t know how to describe who/what Satan is to me? Yes Cassie, a force of nature, maybe the Chaos before the Cosmos, but also a force which my mind has projected imagery on like in all religions this time of Lucifer above and the god of this world Baphomet below with myself as some non-worshipful but respectful agnostic Gnostic Magickian in the center. Yes Sophie, i think of Satan as a beautiful Maya perhaps without as a reflection of the Buddha mind, but within as the Maya of my desires and even illusions and fetishes. Yes Tina, your UPG shows how Satan is grey no matter how you try to explain red and green to him/her, yes an electrical field that shocks and warms us, yet also for me Satan is Fire and Ice as the Nordics say….. TY for yr definititions and reblogging. AS. L/S
I think that we have several times tried to speak about “who” Satan is but perhaps a better question may be “what” is Satan?
We are Theistic Satanists which means we believe in and relate to an actual entity we call Satan. But what exactly is this Satan we relate to? Is it a God? If so, what is a God? Is it a person? Is it a thing? Is it all powerful? Questions like this make atheists suspicious and often dismissive. They tend to view all talk of Gods and Deities as superstitious irrelevancy or rubbish which misses the point that we are our own masters. Atheistic Satanists can be particularly strident on this theme. And that disturbs us to some degree because we respect atheistic arguments and even consider ourselves to be both humanist and atheists to a large extent. But we cannot deny we are also theists…
