It has been said, not just by myself, but by others. It makes absolute sense, and seems to be ignored all too often.
Don’t try to reinvent the wheel!
Perhaps this is to complex for some of those of lesser intelligence… How about, “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it”? Either way, we live in a time where people are trying to come up with something different, involving the same power and entities that have been present since the beginning of human civilization.
Throughout history, ancient cultures have assimilated each others beliefs, and thereby established a general similarity between old and new, keeping them alive through transference and evolution. In more recent times however, spawning in the early dark ages, older culture and ideals were twisted and corrupted.. even destroyed for the benefit of a single group attempting to centralize power over the masses.
Islam, for example, began as a political revolution behind Mohammed, and as it spread it destroyed the many religious and cultural areas through out the middle east. It demonized local and ancient entities, all under the name of the rise.of Islam and its establishment.
Christianity, also accomplished the same goals, as it destroyed the cultures of Europe as well as the areas of the world were it spread. It completely rewrote history to establish itself, as well as demolished the older and ancient religions and entities that came before it.
Some would like to claim that Judaism also accomplished this, however their existence is completely attributed to the history created by the Christian and Islamic machines of old. Their history and culture stands out from the absolutism instilled by the other Abrahamic cults. Judaism borrowed extensively from Sumerian and Egyptian culture, seeing as these two ancient cultures were the foundation to which their civilization is attributed.
Modernism, is the current state of our society. It is in a flux between science and religion. We see this in the rapid advancement of technology and science, versus the decisive decline of religious rule over every aspect of life. Granted this has been beneficial to the majority of mankind, it has left us lacking in the areas which involve matters of a spiritual nature.
I have had many a conversation with modernists of many different paths, and they all share one common theme… Lack of cohesion. Granted, they may be able to handle tolerance, or other modern forms, however when the issue is raised of the deity, or the spiritual, they scoff and debase. This makes for a rather weak individual. The ancients are brushed aside for more, less primal influences, and thereby make the person weaker.
Oftentimes, modernism seems to coincide with atheism, which although I respect the opinions of those with such thoughts, seems to be a lessening factor in matters of the paraphysical. Magic loses its strength when focused merely out of the power of the human will, and the misdirected.energy becomes nothing more than free food for the lesser egregores that float through the other/spiritual.
The apathetic nature of the modernist to the needs and ambitions of the theistic minded is well known, although there are those who deserve such treatmemt.. for example, the Westboro Baptist Church nut jobs… People such as these use the belief in a deity to commit jnspeakable stupidity, and thereby make all theists seem moronic to the modernist.
While I personally do not care what the opinion of the modernist is, I have to be mindful if their large numbers.. As in the olden days, there is strength in numbers – at least in the physical realm.
The New Age
This is a fairly common term to encompass the more recent developments in spiritually geared areas. Granted most of these movements are lacking in strength, they do have a fairly well thought out grasp on the ideals of tolerance.
The new age movement typically does not include Satanists, however there are some rather less powerful people who use the title. They are drawn to the “rainbows and lollipops” picture of the occult that is painted therein. Its a nice idea, but farther from the truth than people wish to admit.
New Age occultism, at least in my experience is a variation of buddhism, eastern mysticism. While these paths may offer some positive influences to ones own journey, I would say that to the true spiritual realm there is no benefit. As far as Satan is concerned, there is hardly any benefit on any level. You have to make your own choices, however I have personally found the older, the more powerful, and thereby more accurate.
The new age movement has encompassed Christianity on many fronts, namely the liberal movements in the various churches. These have softened our own enemies to the point where many Christians do not even believe in a Satan.. while disrespectful to my Deity, it protects our people from the not fanatical element that would do us harm. These more liberal Christians are more willing to defend our own rights, and safety, over their own more fundamentally challenged brethren. (Nothing funnier than watching Christians fight over the local Satanist… And watching some defend them)
Why Theistic Satanism
I am asked this question by nearly everyone I come into contact with.. While it does make things a little more complicated, it is worth it.
Theistic Satanism, is the root of the spiritual. Power of real magnitude flows from within its boundaries, and influences everything around it.. seen and unseen. There is no religion, path, or faith older than Theistic Satanism, and its roots are dug deep within the original human culture – Sumeria.
Some have claimed that merely using the moniker of Satan to address our deity is a link to the more recent abrahamic cults.. Research into the ancient cuneiform has shown that the title, which is what it is, predates Judaism, into Sumer. Hence, it is they who have taken our name.
The power that lies within the soul of a Theistic Satanist is one of the most primordial that can be found, as the ancients will, and the power of.mankinds original defender, Satan, is tied into it. The empowering the individual with a power not found within the mainstream. It takes time, and dedication to tap this power, but is indeed worth the effort.
Following the deity that freed mankind from slavery gives the Theistic Satanist a sense of pride in the face of danger, courage on the eve of destruction, and hope in the darkest hours.. its strength has been felt by those of all other paths, and has existed the Infernal Wrath of Satan on many an unassuming enemy.. leaving them destroyed completely.. and nothing can be done to stop it.you
I have personally seen the power of Satan reach through the so called power weilded by the Christian god.. lthey have no strength, and I have taken priests down in the past and recently, with the mere thought of their demise, they are visited by demonic warriors.. and no crucifix has saved one of them yet.
Just recently I helped a young lady whose parents decided that her being invloved with the occult had to go. While I personally had no contact with the woman, those thay did have contact with her and me, were able to relay messages to her on how to withstand the brutal brainwashing used by the catholics. Spiritual warfare is not exclusively set aside for the christians to use, as the Theistic Satanist is even more prepared and armed for such battles.
The community of Theistic Satanism however, does not reflect this strength however, as it is rife with stupidity and fraud. There are those such as Dorothy Nixon who claim the power without acknolwedging its source, and hiding who they are as if they were to weak to be honest.. or there is a psychotic person trying to start some maniacal cult.. All the while, the real efforts, such as the OTD amd TOTS become muddled in drawn out skirmishes with inner retards and morons…
The Ancients would be ashamed of our use of the deities and their power against one another… However this seems to be all that many are capable of. The eternal power of the Dark King must be respected, lest He choose to.abandon those claiming to be real.
We live kn a time of growth and turmoil.. the stage is being set for a great movement within Satanism, and more precisely Theistic Satanism… The OTD is poised to lead the charge, but the will of the people has to match that of Satan, lest we be drawn down in a hail of inner rifts and fighting.
I also want to give a word to my growing number of supporters, including those down in New Mexico… A clan of friends that are considered allies of the Order and the Deity. Especially one special one…
Infernal Blessings to all who pass this way.. and recieve them with an open heart and mind.
Hail the Dragon!
